ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
It’s not linkable. It’s not indexed by google. It can’t be searched. That’s not “navigable.” If sites can’t be linked to except via their front doors, they’re broken.
Forget the teddy-bear coat–get that model some cheeseburgers! Look at those hips. Her jeans are falling off–are those veins? Ick.
The lego-man motorcycle helmet is a bit hilarious.
And the fat guy covered with band-aids… wtf?
um…. i dunno, i went to the site and could barely click on the links. i’m writing this so that the person who owns the site bight see it… i dunno, firefox on a macbook and the links – the thumbnails, etc, just. won’t. click. WEIRD!
TOo bad cause i liked that cow on the roof thing…
interesting coat, kind of weird :)
The jean sneakers make me think of footie pajamas.
It’s not linkable. It’s not indexed by google. It can’t be searched.
Which presumably is a conscious choice by the owner of the site. Why not respect that wish? Not everything has to be made for our convenience. Some places take a little effort to reach.
Nobody mentioned that the site re-sizes the browser window to full screen just to display a 1024×510 flash window. That’s just rude.
tikal2k-that is what I thought of first too, Flea’s custom stuffed animal pants. He told me that they were stolen out of the trunk of his car many years ago, along with his golf clubs (and he was sadder about the golf clubs than the pants).
better with live puppies.
The belt is problematic, I could see some frustrated individual vainly turning it through the loops looking for the beginning, the moment rapidly fading while she reclines on the bed.
The jacket is like BBs fractal bear link of a few posts ago – I like.
moderators: ever seen any mel brooks movies ?
@#12 cory: but none of those problems are due to flash, are they ? methinks they need to plant some meta-tags. i just know too many flash haters, is all. it’s truly been a “wonderful thing” in my life.
and you totally rock, btw. (!)
if the belt has been made properly, then it should be undoable at any buckle…
I like the idea, but would suffer horrendous buckle rash on my guitars…
Unfortunately, my daughter saw the coat of teddies and wants one…
Instead of foot odor silently seeping out of the top of my trainers at ground level, am I to assume that it’s going to have to make it’s way north and escape via the top of my trousers? Not if I had my belt of belts tightened it wouldn’t!
That belt reminds me of Hennet, the sorcerer pictured in the D&D v3.5 Player’s Handbook. He was rather a fan of belts.
The belt is cool ‘n’ all, but unless it’s made out of some surprisingly thin leather, it’ll never fit through the average Joe’s belt loops.
Which presumably is a conscious choice by the owner of the site. Why not respect that wish?
Because it undermines the fundamental design of the World Wide Web, perhaps?!
Cherry Shiva @25, calling Zuzu a “fundamentalist” for answering Pantograph’s question in a reasonable and accurate way was bad enough. The “final solution” crack was beyond the pale.
I’m glad to see a coat that focuses attention on the horrors of the fake fur trade.
Too many teddies have died for our pleasure.
That Teddy coat looks very similar to those created by JC de Castelbajac.
That jean-shoe thingy is hideous.
What’s the limit for number of teddies allowed to be harmed in the making of that jacket? ;)
Now that provokes many many “Sup Dawg”-Xzibit-Meme-Jokes (i put a belt on your belt…)
I wish someone would call ME a fundamentalist (sniff***)
I made this half-jacket half-teddy monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you don’t like it
What’s with all the screaming?
You like teddies, you like jackets
Maybe you don’t like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many teddies
Isn’t it enough to know that I ruined a jacket making a gift for you?
(With apologies to Jonathan Coulton…)
Instructable for the teddy jacked is welcome.
Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers used to rock the stuffed animal pants onstage for years and years.
Bust A Move!

Why don’t you voluntarily take the evening off to compose yourself.
A belt…made out of belts?
Tetsuya Nomura would be proud.
#13 that’s the next internet meme – LOLmodels – i can haz cheezeburger?
Don’t forget the the ur-text of the Tickle-me-Elmo-fur coat.
Make those shoe/jeans skinny and you have Homestar’s legs!
Strong Bad: …from what I can tell, you wear no pants and have blue soles glued to the bottoms of your feet.
Homestar Runner: W- Well, that’s simply not true. I have long pants, I wear long pants. I’m a long pants man, long pants, long pants! (from SBmail “long pants”)
fie on thy editorial flash-hating, good sir.
the site, while not flawless, is fine and navigable. good stuff.
