Maps of the Disney theme parks are more than
just atlases used by guests to find their way to the nearest restroom. They’re snapshots of a place and time, relics treasured by
collectors, and gorgeous pieces of artwork. After all, it was a
map – imagined by Walt Disney and drawn by Herbert Ryman – that was used to
sell the idea of Disneyland to investors.
Update from my last chest/breast piece picture; you might now notice the sternum gap is filled in and my entire chest is now complete! HEALED photo. Chest/Breast Work by Nico Roussin.
“What is the difference in a mans nipple than a womens? Why is it more of a big deal if I show off my breast tattoos than if a man shows off the tattoos on his pecs? This isn’t about my breasts themselves; it’s about the art on them. Just as if you saw a photo of a mans chest piece, you wouldn’t think it was about his chest, but rather about the tattoos on it. I love my tattoo art & I’m proud of it and I want to show off my art, regardless of gender.” - lilguz
In 2004, Nintendo released a gold colored Game Boy SP to coincide with their latest Zelda release: Minish Cap. Gold Zelda themed editions are pretty common for Nintendo but here’s where it gets interesting.
Nintendo decided to play Willy Wonka and hide a total of 6 golden tickets inside random Zelda SP boxes. If you found a golden ticket, they would send you an actual 24 karat gold plated Game Boy SP!
To this day, no one has ever found any of the tickets and claimed the prize.
With special editions like these, a lot of people tend to buy them and keep them sealed in the box as a collectors piece so someone out there may have a ticket and not even know it.
Weekly Camera Deals: Vintage Medium Format Edition
We often focus on practical cameras for our weekly deals, like rugged 35mm SLRs that you can chuck in your bag and use forever. But this week we thought we’d focus on something different - namely the cameras you want to display and look at and show the world because they are so very beautiful. These authentic vintage medium format beauties are in working condition, although some of them may require you respool film - that can be a fun weekend project and using one of these babies is like traveling through time. So without further ado, here are some of the great deals we found this week on collector’s pieces:
hey i was at a wedding this weekend in like. this tinyass town out in fuckoff nowhere, like. even more fuckoff nowhere than i already live. surrounded by mountains and off on this tiny road and like. it’s a hunting/camping/fishing town. it has a population of 150, apparently
so anyway i head on down to the pub and it’s really cool. there’s like. stubby holders lining the walls and the ceiling. a bunch of random collectors bits and pieces like signed shirts and posters and some antlers and stuff
and then there’s this post. as you can see there’s like. paramedic patches. i think there’s a couple of motorbike club ones there too. but there. at the bottom
can you see it
in this tiny town. out in the middle of nowhere. pop: 144. only tough beer drinking blokey blokes tend to hang out here
Italian made 12 gauge shotgun that can switch between pump-action or semi-auto. No longer in production, it’s believed around 1,800 were imported into the U.S before being banned. Considered a collector’s piece, spare parts are few and far between, hence why most are safe queens. (GRH)
Despite their rocky reunion, Moegami deserved something nice as well for Valentine's, something between sisters. A little harder to pick after so long of not seeing her, yet Yumigami hoped Moegami wight enjoy what she found for her all the same. She wasn't sure if Moegami smoked still, but even if she didn't the pipe would make a fine collector's piece. Solid black with golden fires and a phoenix upon its surface, it was clearly finely crafted.
“Aww! I had to give up my pipe when I started modeling, but I’ll definitely keep this around when I travel! I know Kabe said she was going to give you Lingerie, so instead, I got you all the clothes I’ve modeled this year, plus a certain forge god owed me one so I asked him to forge you a war hammer.” Said war hammer was wrapped in black leather, the head was made of a bluish silver metal with a gold moon engraving on it. “It stores the moon’s energy in it too, so you can use your power at full strength during the day!”
