Everybody Needs A Hobby: Japanese Student Creates Monster Sculpture From Cicada Shells

July 30, 2018

Because sometimes you just have to work with what you've got, and all you've got are a ton of shed cicada shells, this is the freaky monster sculpture created by Japanese high school student and Twitter user ride_hero_. Natural resources, am I right? "What about them?" We're depleting them all and destroying the planet. Just for the record though this is totally fine -- this is like, upcycling. *shrug* I'm sure we've all made toenail clipping art before.

Keep going for a few more of the monster.

Thanks to Dave L, who agrees that is not a monster you want to see crawling out from under your bed at night unless you're the loneliest anybody has ever been ever in the history of the entire planet.

    I love insects, and this is creative as hell.

    Just a bit fucking creepy, sure, but that adds to the coolness.

    Too bad people have to knock creativity and weirdness.

    He could easily sell that shit on Etsy ffs.

    I think the creep factor is literally the enitre appeal.

  • I don't know... I keep picturing the guy who makes these, saying over and over, "it puts the lotion in the basket"... but, but in Japanese of course...

    These were just the bugs he found under his pillow...

    He building a town with the bugs he found in his bedroom and bathtub!

    "A" for effort, "D" for disgusting!

    I'd ask "I wonder what his friends think about this?" but I think we all know the answer.

    He turned them into a sculpture.
