Sculptor Meryl Smith, who crafted the lovely life-sized rodents in Spike’s new short, I’m Here, and designed Opening Ceremony’s tie-in window display, is the mother for a number of other radical animal-inspired creations. Majestic deer headpieces, morbid pigskin pigs, and adorable handbag puppies gush forth from Smith’s dearly sinister imagination. She’s also responsible for a number of hilariously gruesome Halloween costumes, like her 2006 opus: Timothy Treadwell Inside of the Bear That Ate Him. Don’t miss her collaboration with Neckface and make sure to check out Todd Selby’s set of photos capturing Smith’s warmly rococo Noah’s Ark of an apartment, over at The Selby.
