Inspired by the XKCD comic above, I decided to do a bit of good ol' shopping on eBay. I gave myself a budget of $50.00 (although I ended up spending the astronomical sum of $52.89, shipping included), and ended up with plenty of interesting stuff.
Here's what I bought myself with these 52 bucks:
- a pair of Florsheim Imperial brogues (my size! yay!) - a 20'' leather cat o' nine tails (don't ask...) - a silk tie with matching pocket square and cufflinks - a sterling silver ring with an ornate fleur de lis on top of it - a red, vintage looking t-shirt for the 2010 vancouver winter games - a mistery gift (can't wait to find out what it is!) - silver & rhodium triangle cufflinks - black and stainless steel cufflinks sporting a sphinx's face - a pair of 00g plugs made out of 3 different kind of exotic woods - a sleek stainless steel ring with a cross design - a lot of 20 sterile, individually wrapped piercing needles going from 18g to 12g
I'm a canadian multi-disciplinary artist, epicurian and all-around dork, working full-time as a 3D animation teacher in a tiny private college. When I'm not wasting my free time on the internet or gaming, I like to make stuff and learn stuff, with an emphasis on creepy, weird or unusual things.
