Hanging a decapitated feline head as a strap is not everybody's thing. For anyone who feels this is wrong, MEOWF do have a body, just not yet :P This delish rainbow custom is coming my way soon. Thank you TOVI! I can see a bright and illustrious career in painting for you! ;) Jealous much? Don't be. Just get yours HERE!
Lucky MEowf Head: Gold front and Silver back
This is the Meowf Head that was available at the HINTS AND SPICES EVENT. Now, each on of these prototype is hand casted, cleaned, then painted with Monster Kolor paints by Shane Haddy. Can you see the beautiful colour change at the mid section? :) I've managed to score the 'Lucky' custom by TOVI and I consider it my good fortune since things were running out left right centre. The Amigurumi are completely sold out but yo can still grab the last few remaining Meowfs or the Waniphant. Just jump over to the WEBSTORE
Here's a couple of snapshots taken by SHANE at the HINTS AND SPICES LAUNCH EVENT running through till 4th Jun in Adelaide, Australia, so if you're in the area, drop by PAPER STRING PLASTIC at 99a Hindley Street. The good news is items will be made available very soon on the webstore (Move it Shane! :P), including their second (sorry but I will always consider BARRELMON your firstborn) kaiju, the waniphant. The prototype release has a run of 6 and each has undergone the Monster Kolor treatment. If you need a better look at the pearl effect, feast your eyes HERE. Meowf and the collaborative anuigurumi are at $50 each. I think I'm gonna get one of each :) Free art print and card too! AND international orders get a free tee (bottom right of collage). All pictures taken from SHANE'S TWITPIC and before I forget, CONGRATULATIONS MUCH!
A potential Waniphant :P
I can understand why SHANE HADDY did not have the time to arrange a meet-up when I was down under. Look at all the shiny new stuff he is churning out together with TOVI. If you have not heard (unlikely), Shane has an event this coming 28th May at Paper String Plastic in Adelaide. At the party, meant 'to educate people in the appreciation of designer toys', there will be many launches, including a limited edition resin run of the elephant X crocodile kaiju above. Hey guys, don't leave BARRELMON out of this party!
Morbid fascination with chubs
Also, expect to see Meowf, or rather just its head. Limited amount of these prototype feline keychain heads, which are painted by Shane and vandalised by TOVI, can be yours if you promise to head down early. I'm calling dibs on anything gold and rainbow! But that's not all (do I sound like those infomercials yet?), the Hints and Spices x DOL ROFFO anuigurumi will be making its debut during the event, which means, if you don't haul ass, you are missing out on not one, not two, but THREE launches! :) Bookmark HINTS AND SPICES and RSVP HERE.
