Tokyo-based knitter Hiroko creates all sorts of lovely knitwear, which you can see on her Flickr stream or Ravelry page, but our favorite pieces are the awesome hats she makes for her adorable dog Cochi. Over the last few years Cochi has been dressed as medusa, a bunny, a cow, a tiger and more. But most recently Cochi was transformed into a magical Unicorn.

Words of wisdom by Elle Lothlorien via KnitHacker: “Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.”

Cleveland, Ohio-based custom toy artist Infinite Rabbits created this fantastic (and magically gruesome) custom MINDstyle Horselington figure called “The Unicorn Hunter”. In addition to the custom paint job, he exchanged the hunter’s sword for a giant battle axe, added a golden unicorn horn to the horse’s severed head, sculpted the unicorn’s body (complete with a tail made from actual hair) and, last but not least, created the pool of rainbow blood - along with the rainbow splatter on the axe.

To give you an even better idea of how much work was put into this amazing custom figure, click here take a look at the original version by EWOK 5MH.

Jeff Wysaski of Pleated-Jeans has done something completely awesome with our Magical Unicorn Mask: He created a unicorn exhibit at the Los Angeles Zoo, complete with its own educational placard. Entitled “Unicorn at the Zoo,” this delightful video shows off Randy, the zoo’s newest and most magical resident.

"Say hello to the newest resident of the LA Zoo. He’s already a big crowd pleaser…"

Watching him look so longingly at the zebras, we’re wondering how Randy the Unicorn would react if other unicorns showed up to visit him at the LA Zoo.

Now we know why we’ve sometimes felt weirdly unsatisfied after an otherwise amazing day at the zoo. No unicorns!

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.
