Ok, I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but Halloween is quickly approaching so you’d better start thinking about your costume! For those of you looking for something that isn’t in the “full-body gorilla suit” variety, you might be interested in these lacy leather masks from Tom Banwell’s Etsy store. Tom’s masks are really unlike anything I’ve seen before (although I’ll admit I haven’t been mask shopping for a while). And the great thing about these masks is that people can still tell who you are!

A funny little cartoon from Spanish illustrator and graphic designer Xavier Gallego, creator of the Facebook application Eyesores. C’mon, everybody loves mustaches!

This series of paper breakfast foods made by French paper collective Paper Donut is really neat. I’d be curious to know how exactly they created all the items (whether it’s just folded paper or if it’s something like wood wrapped in paper). However they did it, it’s really a fun idea. It reminds me a lot of the paper food created by Swedish graphic designer Daniel Carsten.

How great are these construction equipment eating utensils from The Spoon Sisters? Wish I had a little nephew or niece to get these for!

Göran Kling’s Replica jewelry collection is an homage to luxury wrist watches and is just downright cool.

Graphic designer Jerod Gibson’s reimagined movie posters are so cool. The minimalist posters feature a simple silhouette that is filled with quotes from the movie. You can even purchase any of the posters as a print, shirt or laptop/iPhone skin! Here some of my favorites…
