California-based Yarnboming artists Jill and Lorna Watt of Knits For Life (previously featured here) recently transformed a pair of unassuming benches near the San Francisco Ferry Building into adorably ferocious monsters, complete with six awesome orange feet. The irrepressibly inventive sisters created this delightful yarn installation for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s new show Full Frame.

Adventure Time + decorating Easter eggs = Eggventure Time!

Oh my glob!

The creative folks at HalloweenCostumes.com created ten adorable Adventure Time egg costumes that anyone can download and print to create their very own Ovo-Candy Kingdom. We love that Finn’s costume includes a tiny Jake hanging out in his breast pocket.

We don’t know where Imgur user TryAnotherPiece works, but that’s not important. What really matters is that for their coworker’s last day of work they made this incredibly awesome farewell cake. Nothing says “So long and good luck!” quite like zombies, severed body parts, and lots and lots of chocolate.

Our newest inductee to the Department of Awesome Parenting is Beau Coffron, aka Lunchbox Dad, a San Francisco-based father who creates extraordinary lunchbox meals for his two children every week. These lunches are lots of fun to look while also being tasty, healthy meals for the lucky kids who actually get to eat them. Coffron draws inspiration for his homemade boxed lunches from movies and other pop cultures sources. He also takes requests from his son and daughter.

You can see many more of these awesome meals at the Lunchbox Dad website, where Coffron also provides extensive write-ups for each lunch, including ingredients and how-tos.

Look closely, these aren’t you’re average landscape photos. These are aquascapes. Did you notice the fish swimming past? Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants as well as rocks, stones, driftwood and other hardscape elements in an aquarium. It’s gardening under water, often with fish who reside in the beautiful underwater landscape.

It’s a challenging hobby and, like many other hobbies, for those interested in such things there’s also a competitive element:

"The world of competitive aquarium design, or aquascaping, is just as difficult, expensive, and cutthroat as any other sport but requires expertise in many different fields to guarantee success. Aquarium designers possess large amounts of expertise in biology, design, photography, and excel in the art of patience, as individual aquascapes can take months if not years to fully mature into a completed landscape.”

The aquascapes seen here were part of the International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest (IAPLC), the world’s largest nature aquarium and aquatic plants layout competition.

We love these awesomely accurate appliqué portraits of the Belcher children from Bob’s Burgers. They were made by Boston-based artist Chelsea Bloxsom of Love & A Sandwich (previously featured here):

The Belchers.

James Charles alters the portraits on American dollar bills, exchanging the original staid and solemn faces with those of famous pop culture icons. Sometimes Charles simply draws over the original portraits on the bills, giving the famous politico faces playful makeovers, while on others he completely replaces the original faces. In either case, the text at the bottom of every bill is also replaced with either the name of the new face or a quote or descriptive phrase.

The Bride of Frankenstein’s text reads “Runaway Bride” while Frankenstein’s Monster reads “Love Lorn.” And Willy Wonka’s bill reads “The Bossman” while an Oompa-Loompa on another bill reads “Working Class Stiff.”

These dollars were exhibited back in 2011 as part of the American Iconomics show at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco.

This is the tiniest, cutest Tauntaun we’ve ever seen (and this is the creepiest one). He’s only 5-1/4” tall, comes with an even tinier saddle and bridle, and is so adorable that there’s no way he smells bad on the inside OR the outside.

This crocheted amigurumi biped from the planet Hoth was created by Kanata, Ontario-based artist Christine Doyle. (He’s currently available here.) You can check out more of her kawaii handmade creations as well as handmade jewelry and other accessories at her Etsy shop, underafeymoon.

Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.

"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.

Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:

Canadian DeviantARTist Hayden Sailer gave his classic Oldsmobile a fantastic upgrade with this amazing hood ornament in the shape of Princess Luna from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.

To make the shiny silver pony Sailer used a 3D-printed model from Shapeways that he coated with automotive chrome spray paint and attached to the base from a Chrysler Imperial hood ornament. From a distance you’d never guess that this big red car is an awesome bronymobile. We love it.
