Duct Tape and Cardboard Dinosaurs and Dragons (Oh My!)

dinosaur heads

Veggisaurus on Imgur has been posting photos of his work for an upcoming con: duct tape and cardboard dinosaurs. But recently, he added a new creation: Toothless from “How To Train Your Dragon.”

I couldn’t find Veggisaurus on Etsy so I don’t know if he sells these heads, and I even tried that reverse Google image search…no luck on finding out anything more about him. How an artist of that caliber is hiding is beyond me, especially when you consider where he level of work was two years ago.

I guess the closest thing available would be the Dinosaur Corporation: But does your child have the ultimate dinosaur bedroom accessory-a gigantic Tyrannosaurus Rex or Velociraptor head wall mount onto keep them safe and sound? Dinosaur Wall Mount Replicas are beautifully detailed, it’s made of high quality resin and mounted securely on a wooden trophy plaque.

The Vanilla Studio – Dinosaur Menorahs

It’s time for Hanukkah! And what says Hanukkah more than a metallic painted toy dinosaur?

Lisa Pierce of The Vanilla Studio makes hand crafted menorahs from plastic prehistoric animal toys.

In silver or gold tone, these menorahs are fancy, shiny, and downright fun. Lisa also offers candle holders for your year-round lighting needs. And, according to Lisa’s Etsy profile, it sounds like more exciting projects are underway.

We created The Vanilla Studio years ago as an empty container to hold our creative dreams and endeavors. It’s currently a home for a menagerie of hand-crafted animal menorahs. Stay tuned to see what else we put in the box!
