Meet Monster Mind Sculpts!

About a year or so ago, I found a cute little sculpt figurine and fell in love. I don't remember how I came across it, but I think I did a little girl "squee" sound. I do believe, though, it was this cute little fellow that drew me in:

Meet Blaylock

HE HAS A LITTLE PROPELLER! The cuteness is too much!

So, I'd love to introduce you guys to Monster Mind Sculpts from Cassia Harries. Her ability to create and sculpt these little, adorable creatures is astounding!

While the sculptures are not for sale yet, you can drool over them until they do become available. 

Cthulhu Babies (Those big, adorable eyes)

While you're on her website, click over to the Gallery, and check out the DarkSkies Collection (which is where you'll meet Blaylock). It's a little bit of steampunk and a whole lot of awesome!

What inspired Cassia to create these beauties? From her website:
 Drawing since I was 2 yrs old, I had a passion for creating and developing characters and creatures. It was movies like the Lion King, Jurassic Park and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth that inspired the dream of sculpting and one day making creatures and characters into toys or even for films. In my spare time when Im not working as a concept artist for game companies, I sculpt and invest time in my business
“Monster Mind Sculpts”.

Although it can be challenging to stay motivated after a long day’s work, it is the drive to pour my creativity and passions in sculpture that gives me the energy to move forward.

If you are going to the DesignerCon 2014 in Pasadena, California Saturday and Sunday (November 8-9), you can find her and her adorables at Booth #201.

You can follow Monster Mind Sculpts on Facebook. Try not to fall too deep in love with them. Squee all you want.

PlayMe: Alice in Wonderdice (Kickstarter)

I don't remember the first time I ever saw "Alice in Wonderland" by Disney, but I fondly remember the 1985 version with Sammy Davis Jr, as The Caterpillar ('Old Father William'), Red Button as The White Rabbit, and many other awesome celebrities that were popular at that time. We bought it on VHS (remember those?), and I do believe Twin and I played it out. A few years ago I saw that someone had uploaded it to YouTube. To be honest, I was immediately taken back to Saturdays where we would eat ice cream and watch the movie over and over. (That freaking Jabberwocky still gives me the heebie jeebies.)

A few days ago, I saw that someone had followed me on Twitter under "@wonder_dice." I was intrigued. I usually check out anyone who follows me because hey, isn't it just nice manners to follow them back? (Except maybe those spam weirdos.) I saw their profile had amazing illustrations of Alice In Wonderland-type things, and I knew I had to follow them back!

So, before I start getting into too many details about how I found out all about this cool game, let's get into what this game is about.

"I'm late for a very important date!"

From their Kickstarter page:
PlayMe: Alice in wonderdice is a board game that plunges 2-6 players between dreams and reality. Become one of Wonderland’s characters and be the first to catch the White Rabbit. Use different strategies, challenging your reflexes and your tactical skills with fun and frantic dice rolls. But be careful, because in this realm, the other side of the coin might be around the next bend. Are you ready to find a way out ?"
The description makes me want to play it IMMEDIATELY!!!

So, go check out their Kickstarter page, and maybe you'll fall down the rabbit's hole, too. Enjoy finding a way back out.
