I was inspired by the Offbeat Homies DIY challenge to create a papier-mâché unicorn. But unicorns aren’t really me and I don’t have the wall space for something that honkin’. I do, however, have a fondness for the weird and taxidermied wonder that is the mythical jack rabbit/antelope hybrid, the jackalope.
Inspired by Sandrine Estrade Boulet‘s awesome street-art inspired work, this weekend’s Offbeat Homies Weekend Challenge is to go out into your neighborhood and anthropomorphize some shit, and then take hilarious photos of it!
This could be as easy as eye-bombing or as complex as using chalk, yarn, or other mixed materials to create a temporary humanoid form out of a found object or natural element.
Here’s how to play…
Last Thursday, we posted the first of what we hope will be many Offbeat Homies Weekend Challenges. We gave readers a choice of two DIY challenges: nerdy cupcakes with sanding sugar, or faux taxidermied unicorn heads.
Well, the results are in, and no surprise that they are fucking awesome! We’ve got tentacles, TARDIS blue EXTERMINATE cupcakes, a pet rat, and wait until you see the jackalope…
We’re heading into a three-day holiday weekend here in the States, and I figured that after the success of Megan’s hilarious cooking challenge, it would be fun to try a little READER challenge, wherein we challenge Homies to take on a DIY project of our choosing, and then we can all compare results.
