“4 days of 8-10 hours of work, 5.5m of minky and a couple wounds later Pinkie is now complete. She stands at about 55” (4.5ft) from her hooves to the hightest part of her mane and weighs a whooping 15lbs. As pictured, she can stand unaided thanks to some cushioning foam inside of her (to learn how I did it check this journal: [link]). Her eyes and cutie mark are satin stitched instead of machine embroidered because they were too big for my embroidery machine. The lines and details in her mane were also satin stitched.”
And just in case you’re wondering (because we’ll admit we were) this prodigious Pinkie Pie cannot support a person’s weight (that would required a solid internal frame). She’s meant for cuddling, not riding.

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.
Here at the Geyser of Awesome we’re no stranger to animals wearing sweaters. We’ve seen Shetland Ponies wearing sweaters, cats wearing sweaters, and even an adorable pug wearing an awesome dalek sweater. But this might be the first time we’ve seen a snake wearing a sweater.
Meet Milky Joe. Milky Joe’s thoughtful human, Stephanie Christine Davidson, didn’t want her cute cold-blooded friend to get cold during the winter, so she commissioned Kacie Kim (aka Unicorn Girl) to knit this awesome pink sweater for him. How sweet is that?
We must say, it looks great on him and now we sort of wish we had a long, full-body sweater we could wriggle into. Visit Stephanie’s blog to watch a video of Milky Joe enjoying his cozy, pink sweater.
If Liberace had commissioned his own helicopter, we think it might’ve looked a lot like the awesome pink and gold aircraft you see here.
This splendid machine is the Lilicoptère, a Bell 47 helicopter that’s been sumptuously adorned with dyed ostrich feathers and countless rhinestones. The Lilicoptère was created by artist Joana Vasconcelos as a vision of what Marie Antoinette might ride in were she alive today. (This does then beg the impudent question, would she eat cake in it too?)
“The interior features intricate woodwork, gilding, and custom upholstery embroidered with Marie Antoinette’s initials. The sculptural installation was part of the artist’s 2012 solo exhibition at the Palace of Versaille.”

New York-based artist Jennifer Rubell specializes in creating awesome, large-scale art installations using food. This sweet pink creation is a small, enclosed room with interior walls and ceiling completely lined with bricks of cotton candy. Yum! Entitled Padded Cell, the room was created in 2010 and was part of an event that took place on November 6, 2010 called “The Red Party.”
“Padded cell is an 8’X16’ freestanding room constructed of basic building materials, with a single door that contains a plexiglass window. Inside, the walls and ceilingare padded with pink cotton candy, and a bare light bulb hangs in the center. The door is opened at 9pm, but the interior is visible through the window throughout the evening. The Red Party’s main dinner is served inside a Russian-themed constructivist set, and Padded Cell acts as an escape from that, an all-American funhouse that is at the same time confining, threatening, claustrophobic. It is an object that addresses the dark side of pleasure, the price of pleasure, the possibility that pleasure is its own punishment. Approximately 1,800 cones of cotton candy are used in its construction.”
Yep, we wish we could’ve played (and dined) inside of it too.
Danish photographer Marcus Møller Bitsch (aka Marcus MB) created this awesome self-portrait, appropriate entitled Up, back in 2011 as part of an ongoing 365 project. This photo has inspired us to devote more time to practicing our own bubble gum bubble-blowing skills.

Could this be the cutting edge of edible fashion?
For a beautiful and playful new series entitled Barbapapa, photographer Isabelle Chapuis photographed models wearing cotton candy as hair, jackets, belts, and coats.
Perfect for fashionistas with a sweet tooth.
Holy smokes, it’s a bright pink Christmas tree monster. Christmas Kaiju!
This is a “Pink” holiday Garamon Tree created by Atom Gray and Kiera Harrison (aka Miss Magpie) of Maneki Nekro studios. The sculpture stands “approximately 30” tall on a turntable base, comes pre-wired with bright pink lights, includes the ultra-ornaments as well as the gift-wrapped city buildings, and can be purchased HERE right now…”
