While it’s not on the official list, we’re pretty sure that practicing good oral hygiene habits is part of the Unicorn Code. However we recommend brushing your pearly whites a bit more gently than this enthusiastic fellow. And don’t forget to floss!
This has got to be one of the silliest uses of our Magical Unicorn Mask that we’ve seen yet. We love it! While we don’t know who created the Gif, the genius behind the original video is Luke Mitchum on Vine! Thanks, Luke.
Today is the third and final day of the Emerald City Comicon here in Seattle, WA. The awesome vibe is still going strong and Archie McPhee is still proudly occupying booth #2013, doing our part to fan the flames of wonderful, whimsical geekery that permeate every corner of the Washington State Convention Center.
One of the happenings we promised would take place during ECCC was the opportunity to meet the Original Unicorn, and boy howdy, was that ever an awesome experience. As you can see from the many images posted above, not only did people get to meet the Unicorn, people also hugged the Unicorn, communed with the Unicorn, and even danced with the Unicorn.
Then there was the unfortunate incident with the poor Star Trek “Redshirt" on the worst away mission ever - accidentally stabbed by a unicorn when approaching for a simple hug. Life can be so cruel. Hilarious, but cruel.
There’s still a little time left to come over to booth #2013 and say hello. Unicorns, horses, anthropomorphic bacon characters and squirrels wearing underpants would love to meet you.
We love the work of Diane Han, a Korean-born illustrator and graphic designer who now lives and works in Los Angeles. We’ve seen horseflies before, but never an indisputably awesome Unicorn Fly.
Hm, swatting at flies might become impossible if we have to stop and consider whether they might be Secret Unicorns.
We’ve may have found the perfect footwear to go with our Inflatable Unicorn Horn or Magical Unicorn Mask. These incredible heelless platform boots are called Unicorn Hooves. They are the work of Oonacat, an artist based in Salt Lake City, Utah who specializes in creating custom-made “heelless hooves” and “heeless paws” as well as awesome pairs of ears and horns.

Thanksgiving is over, but we’ve just learned about an awesome Thanksgiving creature and don’t want to wait until next year to share it with you. This is the Unirkey and he’s the brainchild of artist Alex Pardee. Our enthusiasm for Unicorns is such that we couldn’t help but immediately love this strange creature, who is apparently Alex’s “3rd favorite (not so famous) mythical beast.”
Alex’s Grandfather’s Great-Great Uncle Randy originally told the dramatic story of the Unirkey’s origin:
He said that in 1621, the Pilgrims begged the Heavens for a turkey big enough for the 53 of them to feast upon to celebrate their harvest. To their disbelief, a 240 pound wild turkey fell from the sky right onto the serving platter on the middle of the giant dinner table.
“GET IT!” yelled the head pilgrim. But the turkey was too quick. It clawed its way off of the table and soon had a band of hungry pilgrims chasing it into a small patch of forest. Little did anyone know, a once-in-a-lifetime event was happening in the forest at that very moment: A 6-eyed Unicorn who lived behind the rainbows was bathing in a waterfall in plain sight. The unicorn sensed the fear in the giant turkey from the sky, and acted accordingly. The unicorn exploded out of the waterfall, ducked his neck down, swooped up the turkey, flung him onto his own back, and galloped straight through the band of Pilgrims, piercing almost all of them with its majestic horn. After the Unicorn bolted into the sunset, no one heard from, saw, or mentioned that incident again. Until years later, in the middle of the same patch of forest, on Thanksgiving, behind the waterfall, someone saw something. It was giant. It resembled a turkey…but with six eyes…and a breathtaking horn. And it seemed to be….glowing. When the man approached the magical beast it had vanished. More sightings were reported behind waterfalls all over the world over the years, all occurring on Thanksgiving. Rumor has it that the giant turkey and the unicorn were quite smitten with each other, and that this mystical Unirkey is their love-child. But what does it want? And where will it strike (a pose) next? No one knows, but if I were you, I would pay close attention to any form of flowing water on Thanksgiving, as you might be in for a surprise.
Have you ever noticed a person who looks a lot like their animal companion? Wouldn’t it be awesome to encounter a pair like this?
While we firmly believe that all Unicorns are awesome and magical, it might be unwise to assume that they are all made of rainbows, goodness, and light. There might just be a dark unicorn or two roaming around out there.
This ferocious Unicorn Monster was created by animator, storyboard artist, and character designer Beth Sleven, who also has a great fondness for monsters. She created this piece at the request of her two younger brothers, which leads us to believe that her whole family is pretty awesome.

Look at that, it’s a taxidermy squirrel (ahem, tsk tsk, naked) riding a horse! Clearly it’s business as usual here at the Geyser of Awesome. There is just one thing that would make this image even more awesome than it already is…
If only that horse were a unicorn. Then again, it might be a Secret Unicorn!
