Medieval Creepiness

What's that you wonder? Well, you're more than likely thinking: Um. WTF is THAT?

That, my friends is a purse. Yes. A PURSE. I hate carrying purses. I get pissed off when it's too small and can't carry the stuff I need. Then if it's too big? I shove everything I can find in that thing. But this? THIS has changed my mind.

The hair is attached to the silver with Frankenstein like bolts. The hair is fake and sewn in a plastic head. I finished the top on the sterling silver with sand blaster and gave the whole piece a dark patina.

I am utter horrified, yet there's a part of me that is very intrigued by this item. It's such a fantastical mess that I feel the urge to buy it.

I will have NO fear of traveling on the subway at night because my doll-head-chain-mail-steel purse can be used for defense. Also people my fear that I will decapitate them and put their head in my purse, so they will stay away.

Because OMG.

Staged perfectly on a creepy discombobulated hand. A rubber glove, maybe? Either way? It's nothing but fantastic.

The top of the head is hinged, so the top of the bag opens. The clasp has a plastic blue doll eye and a cast eyelash. I cast the eyelash myself.

So to get into the purse, you much unhinge the eyeball. The shove your hand inside.

And to top it all off? A bottle nipple adhered to the bottom. What's inside that nipple you're wondering, aren't you?

At the bottom of the chain mail hangs a rubber bottle nipple filled with wax broken dollies.

Filled with doll parts? My. Gah!

I will never sleep soundly again.

    I think this person may need professional help. Preferably in a locked facility.

    Whoever created this monstrosity is a demented person. Everyone knows you fill the nipple at the bottom with more heads. Tiny, tiny heads.

    This, right here, is one of the few reasons I was female.

    ‘Cause females can get away with carrying ’round stuff like this.

    Simply! Smashing!

    Hold on, wait. People actually expect to be paid for this crap? REALLY?? Why am I working 9 – 5, then?

    Then again, I might consider paying this “crafter” to keep this thing the fuck away from me :P
