    Have you thought about Holiday cards yet? I’m still cringing over last year’s fiasco in our house. I organized the photos, set up the cards, placed the order… but somehow I typed my credit card number incorrectly and I missed the email that told me that fact! By the time my irate-customer personality kicked in […]

    One of my two favourite hat designers in the world (the other one being Philip Treacy) is the indomitable Stephen Jones. His extravagant and outré objets d'art (it seems unfair to call them simply hats) are always sure to catch the eye and be the centre of attention when the wearer appears in an event. His new project is a collaboration with Mattel: he designed five Barbie dolls for them, with his unique vision and flamboyant style making them coveted collector's items.


    The talented designer says that "Barbie is the most fabulous private client. She came into the salon for her Christmas morning hat and left with five glamorous outfits! Barbie and I have the same design vision; we love tradition, but have an eye for the future." The dolls will cost £250 each (ouch) and will be available from Selfridges London's Toy Shop on November 15, where Barbie opened a space earlier this year. "We're enamoured with the idea of truly one-of-a-kind gifts this Christmas," said Selfridges' head of accessories, children's wear and toys, Erin Moscow. "More than ever before we're aware of the demand for pieces which offer something really special. These pieces don't necessarily come with a million-pound price tag - they're not about ostentatiousness - their beauty lies in their rarity. All of the storytelling and fantasy of Stephen's work, realised with fun and witticism that's synonymous with Barbie, has gone into these beautiful dolls." 


    Of course the designer also commented on each doll. Above is Holly Barbie, his favourite: "This is my personal favourite, using the contrast of soft velvet and spiky holly leaves. Barbie also has her very own pet Robin to give her a Christmas peck."


    On Santa Baby Barbie (pictured above): "Every Barbie needs a fabulous Christmas outfit, so I used the idea of a Santa hat to make a fantasy cocktail dress, dedicated to Mrs Santa."


    And how about Snow Globe Barbie? "There is nothing more magical and glamorous than floating snowflakes encased in a snow globe."


    Yes, there is a Christmas Tree Barbie too: "I ensured the drama and volume of a full pine tree by illuminating the multicolour baubles within her Christmas tree headpiece."


    Luckily the last one is not named Rudolph, the red nosed Barbie doll but Toffee Ice Barbie: "Rudolph, Prancer and Vixen are some of Santa’s reindeers, so I wanted to make Barbie an outfit in which she can dance and prance on the ice rink."



    If you think it is the first time Stephen Jones has done something with the iconic doll, think again. He has presented a collection of hats on Barbie mannequins in the past and this August he made the headband shown above, for a short clip titled "Punk: Not Clueless" starring himself. The headband is sold for a hefty £1000 + VAT on the Showstudio website. I bet you can make one for much less.

    Watch This 8-minute Short Film Wes Anderson Made For Prada

    In this short titled Castello Cavalcanti, Jason Schwartzman plays a race car driver who crashes in the middle of a village during the Molte Miglia rally in September 1955 and when a bus arrives to pick him up, he decides to wait for the next one. It’s a simple story told only in a way Wes Anderson could tell it: with lots of pan shots, an intricate set, and lots of primary colors.

    ALBOTAS Needs Writers

    As I’m sure you’ve noticed, A Little Bit on the Awesome Side struggles every now and then with posting cool shit. Unfortunately, this blog doesn’t pay our bills. It pays us with network connections, occasional free comic books, video games, films, and download codes, Amazon gift card money, and friendships. Eventually, we’d love to make this first priority in all of our lives, but with full time jobs, significant others, and tons of bills, it’s diffucult crafting an internet geek-blog into a source of income.

    Right now, ALBOTAS is run by three people: gorillashit (myself (Kevin)), Brownkidd (Robby), and el-marc (Marc). We all frantically do work outside of this, so it’s hard to constantly cover the massive span of gaming, comic books, movies, design, technology, gear, culture, anime, and pretty much every geek crevice imaginable in between.

    We think it’s about time we ask around if anyone is interested in contributing for us.

    Right now, we’re looking for people who specialize in the topics of film, anime, gaming, comics, and pretty much a bulk of what we cover now, but with an open mind of everything we already dabble in. We need people proficient with Tumblr and HTML, as well as social networking and promoting posts.

    If this interests you, or maybe even someone you know, give us an email. Please contact: cortez@albotas.com or brownkidd@albotas.com if you have interest in contributing and growing with us, and we will be more than happy to discuss benefits and opportunities we have open for writers.
