Bento Review: Marvel Masterworks Iron Man Volume 2


I finished off the December Bento box pile with one I had some minor mixed feelings for:  a Marvel Masterworks volume of old 1960s Iron Man adventures.

The mixed feelings were because while I actually get a kick out of Silver Age screwiness, I’m not much of a fan of Iron Man when he’s not also Robert Downey Jr.

Review and maybe some mild SPOILERS after the cut.

Unicorn Gin Is A Thing Of Sparkling Legends


Gin. What’s better than Gin? How about Unicorn Tears Gin.

You read the right. Tears of the Unicorn. Straight into a gin bottle. You can tell this is real because it’s sparkling. I kid you not, those are real Unicorn sparkling tears – given freely & happily, or else this bottle would be labeled Tequila vs. Gin.

 Nose: Fragrant juniper rises from the glass alongside Curaçao orange and crisp lemon. Bruised mint leaves and fresh lemongrass brings herby freshness to the nose. Palate: Big bundles of candied orange peels, flying saucer sweeties and a hint of maple syrup. Touches of pine-y juniper berries and cardamom introduce elements of spices. Finish: Sweet, juicy orange freshness goes on and on throughout the finish.

Get your very own over at Firebox and speak none of this to Lord Voldemort. And as always, drink responsibly, for drinking too much of this leads to pooping rainbows. And we don’t need anyone else pooping rainbows – let’s be considerate of our neighbors, shall we?

Cut To Perfection: Paper Craft Animal Masks


A couple of years ago Steve Wintercroft, after receiving an invite to a Halloween party but struggling for costume ideas, sat down with a pile of old cardboard, some parcel tape, a pair of scissors and plenty of hot tea. An hour or so later and after some trial and error he had made himself a fox mask. The mask was well received so a year later he redesigned it and added a couple of other animals. And thus was born the WINTERCROFT Etsy shop.

The masks are straight forward to cut out and assemble and are intended to be made from waste card, old cereal boxes are perfect. Steve designed masks for music videos, fashion shoots, parties and events with designs from dogs to a Stag and is always open to suggestions for new ideas. If can’t find what you are looking for or you need a particular mask for your event, just ask. In the shop you will find delicately drawn templates, and easy to follow written instructions so that the masks can be assembled by anyone, using local materials and removing the need for mass manufacturing or shipping. You’ve GOT to see how amazing these masks are after the break:
