Don’t throw away those empty pizza boxes! They’re (slightly greasy) works of art waiting to happen. Russian paper artist and graphic designer Yulia Brodskaya (previously featured here) just transformed a corrugated cardboard pizza box into a beautiful paper filigree butterfly. Brodskaya created her upcycled box butterfly for a Dutch online food ordering site called Thuisbezorgd.nl.

"Martin, there’s all kinds of sharks in the water, you know? Hammerheads, Whitetips, Blues, Makos…" and let’s not forget the dreaded Bra Shark.

Malaysian artist Louise Low Seok Loo uses brassieres, over 1,000 of them so far, to create colorful works of art including original sculptures, such as the awesome bra shark (entitled Fatal Attraction), and to cover existing objects. She uses bras as her artistic medium in order to ” explore the sensitivity and familiarity of the general public towards brassieres” and in effort to combat a cultural superstition regarding the display of women’s undergarments.

The New Straits Times explains: She said the artwork which took about one month to complete would also educate society particularly the younger generation among the Chinese community, against superstition.
In Chinese culture, the women’s undergarment was believed to bring bad luck when displayed indiscriminately.

Between the two socks I made a sweater, capri bottoms and knee high socks in a whole Deadpool pajama set for my friend. Her doll isn’t as hippy and thick thighed as my doll, so the pants and socks won’t be as stretched out. I’m really happy with the whole set!
