Seriously, how fucking creepy is this thing? Who knew it was possible to make pictures of clowns that look even scarier than real clowns?

The World Championship of Sand Sculpting took place this year in Federal Way, Washington, beginning September 8th, with artists’ work remaining on display until October 10, 2010. The annual event, which draws competitors from around the world, took place in Canada for more than 20 years; this year marked the first time the United States served as the host country. Artists compete for the top title in three categories: solo, double and teams. Quebec-based sculptor Marc Lepire contributed a piece called “Krazy,” that he says “was inspired by a character in a movie he watched with his son” (I’m betting it was Killer Klowns from Outer Space). The day before the photo above was taken, the clown had hair on both sides of his head.
Unfortunately, a bird landed on one side and collapsed that part of the sculpture. Lepire compensated by carving the skull open and exposing the clown’s brains. Clever!
Too bad school is almost out, because school kids would be all over this shit. And who doesn’t love disembodied Doll Heads. I know I do. Mezco Toys has introduced a new line based on one of their most popular products – the Living Dead Dolls Pencil Toppers. Each topper is an accurate miniature recreation of your favorite Living Dead Dolls‘s head. Series one contains the disembodied heads of: Sybil, Schitzo and Sadie. Fits most common size pens and pencils (not included) and – for you completist collectors out there – each one is individually carded. My friend Debbie once had a Living Dead Doll made in her likeness and named after her. It was called Deadborah. Clever.
