nick cave

I'm totally smitten with these AMAZING soundsuit costumes by artist Nick Cave (not the nick cave you're probably thinking of but he's equally super dooper ace). His phantasmagorical body sculptures ooze pure beauty and joy. The suits are a combination of all the elements that make my heart melt... colour, texture, sound, pattern, recycling and the addition of hairy bits. I'm afraid to say on my hair washing day I kind of resemble the full bodied blonde hairy manimal version. Sometimes I scare the kids with my cousin IT impersonation. If you dig his thang but freak at the idea of wearing a big, hot, heavy hairy suit then invest in a Nick Cave punching bag for $70 USD, yes you read it correctly. Fun for the entire family!
