Shark socks that appear to be devouring your legs


Tsarina's tshark shocks resemble sharks that are gnawing off the wearer's feet. They come with knit, velcro-attachable remoras! The comments are full of people begging to buy a pair of these, but there's no indication at this point that they are for sale, either as patterns or finished articles.

The shark theme has been done, of course; this, however, is the Tshark theme… … and as such it is intended to go farther over the top, and deeper under the bottom, than your average sea-going pedator. (Check out my shiny new neologism that I just this minute made up! “Pedator” - a predator that is worn on the foot, geddit?)

Just When You Thought It Was Safe…. (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)

A wonderful photo contributed to the Boing Boing Flickr Pool by Ben Lepley, who explains that this is his cat Yoshimi Minski, "sleeping in the semi-mummy position."
