In all my time searching the various tubes of the internets in search of teh handmade funny, I've noticed that most crapfts seem to fall within certain types of categories. Today we're going to discuss the often-attempted and not-once-ever-achieved category known as the "expensive object homemade knock-off". This kind of crapft only appears when a crafter becomes so genuinely deluded enough in their own talents that when they see, let's say, a pair of $2000 Lanvin jewel-encrusted leather 4 1/2 in high-heels, they have a conversation with themself that ends with "if one of the biggest and most luxuriously expensive fashion houses in the world can do it, so can I." And so here we are, left with a crafting Fail of epic proportions, and thank god for that.
These were the hells (I know that's a typo, but I'm keeping it) that inspired our intrepid crafter to achieve greatness:
And here is the spectacular results, which the crafter was evidently damn proud of:
And what does this excercise teach us? That a glue-gun and plastic baubles are not all that is necessary to create haute couture. I'm pretty sure you need to have some talent in there somewhere as well. And taste. Taste helps.
