It’s Almost Halloween…

In anticipation of our 2nd favorite holiday of the year (Easter is #1, obvi), we’ve created this glittery lapin-o-lantern for the office.

It’s more sparkly than it is spooky.

If you need help pulling your costume together, or aren’t sure what you want to be and need some inspiration, be sure to check out our hare-raising collection of costume slippers.

Facehuggers Don’t Yolk Around

Anyone who has seen Ridley Scott’s Alien remembers the facehugger scene. I still jump out of my seat when that octo-legged extra terrestrial leaps forth from its egg, foreshadowing doom for the Nostromo cast (save for Ripley, of course).

Despite the ghastly premise of this H.R. Giger-inspired hop art, we couldn’t help but post it. It tickles our funny bunny bones in ways that are so wrong… but feel so right.

He should have followed quarantine procedures…

This little statue would be the perfect Halloween gift for the special person in your life who falls on the creepier end of the cute index.

(As seen on i09.)

Keep an eye out later this week for more long-eared sci-fi movie mash-ups.

How To Draw Bugs Bunny: Hop Art Instruction From An Old Pro

This week we released a brand new design to our character slippers collection. We think this slipper style filled a void we had long sensed was present in our catalog. You see, we had the classic bunny slipper, the brown bunny slipper, the killer rabbit slipper, and even flip-hop bunny spa sandals… but we didn’t have any slippers in the style of the reigning cartoon king of Lapin Land, until now.

Eh, what’s up doc?

To celebrate the recent addition of these Bugs Bunny Slippers to Bunnyslippers.com, we’d like to share a vintage clip of legendary animator Chuck Jones presenting a step by step lesson on drawing this ‘wascally wabbit’.

Run, Rabbit, Run!

In 2009, the Syfy channel ran a TV miniseries called Alice. The show combined elements of   science fiction and fantasy with the Lewis Carroll novel of similar name. The Syfy channel partnered up with creative agency Fallon to create promotional materials for the show. The one below appealed to us for obvious reasons…

We love this piece of high-flying hop art!

DIY Homemaker Hop Art

It doesn’t have to be the Easter season to enjoy a good rabbit-related project. Perusing Pinterest one day, we happened upon one such craft that appealed to our Portlander tastes. Because, really, everything tastes better from a mason jar.

The steps are easy enough. Superglue some miniature toy rabbits to mason jar tops, spray paint in appealing pastel colors, and seal. For more lovely pictures and step by step instructions, check out the blog of talented Miss Torie Jayne.

Lazy Thursday

In the interim between the ‘real week’ (Monday through Wednesday) and the weekend (Friday through Sunday), there’s agonizing Thursday. It’s not quite time to celebrate, but the pile of work on your desk has dwindled down to a slow trickle of largely pointless memos and notifications – hardly worth getting worked up about.

It’s days like these, even in the late July heat, where a pair of well worn bunny slippers help you bridge the gap. They’re transitional footwear from dreamland to the corporate world, your bed to your desk, a ‘case of the Mondays’ to TGIF. And that’s why we love them.

(HEAVY) Hop Art at the Drake Hotel

The Drake Hotel in Toronto, Canada is known for being a “hotbed of culture”. During a recent stay there, one of our FH2P editors noticed a eye-catching collection of hop art out on the roof.

The collection, ‘Concreatures at My Window’ is by Toronto-born artist Ross Bonfanti are made by casting the insides of plush animals dolls.

Hello, there!

Hello, there!

The result of his artistic manipulation is a piece that emotionally engages us with memories of stuffed childhood friends. However, while their concrete form literally ‘solidifies’ these memories for us, there’s something about the transformation from colorful plush to hard stone that’s a little unnerving.

I'm not even sure what this one is.

So, folks – is it cute, creepy, or just the right amount of both?
