How to know you’re marrying a soulmate – wedding cake test?
inspiratu.com
OK, this test is completely unofficial, but has to be accurate nevertheless. If you find that special one who is game for a wedding cake in a form of severed heads (groom and bride heads in this case) - this person is a keeper. Message "Till Death Do Us Part" was loud and clear when wedding cake was brought in depicting decapitated Natalie and David Sideserf heads... so realistic, with postmortem gaze, bloody neck and all. Natalie and David - both movie buffs, decided on cake theme after seeing a horror flick.  Besides it's  "soulmate test" - it is great antidote to cheesy and boring wedding cake designs we've seen ad-nauseam in countless similarly boring weddings.  Cake artist Natalie of Sideserf Cake Studio is no stranger to creating realistic cake artistry. Some of her creations - like Willie Nelson's head cake were going viral on internet already. For more of amazing cake creation visit Sideserf Cake Studio. All images via Sideserf Cake Studio [...]

Motherboards, hard drives, floppies become textured medium of sorts for his hand painted portraits. The results are simply beautiful. Judge for yourself. Artwork by Andrea Boriani [...]

Orgasmic faces in promotional posters for Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac”
inspiratu.com
No stranger to the controversy Danish filmmaker Lars Von Trier done it again. Long before his latest movie Nymphomaniac is scheduled to be released on December 25, 2013, publicity is gaining momentum by release of movie posters depicting main characters in orgasmic facial expressions so natural it makes you wish you were present in their photo-shoot. Naturally remarks from actor Shia LaBeouf that he had real sex during the filming doesn't hurt. Whether your favorite or not, Lars Von Trier definitely is one of the most innovative filmmakers having this gift at creating moods (some of them disturbing) that sucks you in but are never dull or indifferent. On our favorite movie list is Europa, Breaking the Waves, Antichrist and Melancholia. From the actors in these posters we think Uma shall be a frontrunner in depiction of big O. More can be found on Zentropa [...]

How to seduce women. Lessons from Beard & Moustache Championships
inspiratu.com
Pick-up artists, teachers in the art of seduction and new age "casanovas" of all types met in New Orleans to share in the latest techniques of female seduction. Techniques and methods might differ, but all participants agreed on one thing: facial hair and unique looks are important. Las Vegas based photographer Greg Anderson was on hand to chronicle this famous event... Ok, ok... how we wish that was the case if just for the sake of funnies... (for those of us who doesn't know what "tongue in cheek" is - read below): What's better event for portrait photographer to attend than National Beard and Moustache Championships, full of characters ready to pose, and what's better city to have such a championship than New Orleans. Las Vegas based photographer Greg Anderson took opportunity of both and the result is a stunning collection of portraits as if they stepped from the movie set. Some of them beards might not play well with your current employment (especially if you're working as a [...]

Imaginary barriers and virtual segregation in Hector Arnau’s “In Boxes”
inspiratu.com
Compare our world of today to the one as recent as 20 years ago. Thanks to internet, social media, "artificial" online friends, gratification of instant contact - world "shrunk", brought us closer - virtually. But are we really closer? Barcelona based photographer Hector Arnau in his photo series called "In Boxes", explores theme of human compartmental segregation - often self imposed. "In Boxes" provides not so modest narrative on false virtual lives many of us live. We separate ourselves by artificial ("cardboard") barriers, not allowing, or maybe forgetting of real human contact and not able to show who we truly are inside. Characters in the pictures making an effort to get out of their confined spaces, unable to break imaginary barriers, separations that we've created to protect vulnerable selves. Aren't we similarly trying to escape claustrophobic state of starvation for human contact, and then in futile desperation reach out to online worlds just to be-friend this faceless avat [...]

Realistic but deceptive body art by Choo San
inspiratu.com
We've all seen painted on body bikinis, ornaments, illustrations and all kinds of tattoo's but Japanese artist Choo San took art of body painting to completely different level. 3D photo-realistic body artwork is so real and "surreal" at the same time that somehow adds new dimension to the body and for a moment get's you thinking "that zipper must feel painful"... What started as doodling eyeballs on back of her hand developed in to inspiring body art that catches our imagination. Body art by Choo San [...]
