The holidays really take it out of you, doesn't it? Thanksgiving went in a blur and now all I see is green trees and flashing lights. Maybe I had too much turkey? Delusions aside, welcome to Custom Made Tuesday this week. I a...

Creo Design reveals Sugar Skull Tooth Decay
by Brian Szabelski

Creo Design will have an exclusive Sugar Skull Tooth Decay at Clutter Gallery's upcoming Gift Wrapped exhibition. The Tooth Decay itself isn't just any ordinary piece: it's a one-off, painted to look like a sugar skull, but also glows in the dark. You know, just for that extra little spookiness when you go to sleep at night.

Gift Wrapped opens Dec. 14, and the Sugar Skull Tooth Decay will be available there for US$250.

Some people claim that dentists are evil ... but teeth themselves? That's new, and Creo Design's Tooth Decay resin piece is a skull-shaped tooth ... or is it a tooth-shaped skull? One or ther other should suffice, but it's 7-...

Creo Design pays tribute to a certain turtle celeb
by Natalie Kipper

Fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will surely be thrilled with Chris Alexander of Creo Design's exclusive figure for the recent ToyCon UK. Using Taylored Curiosities' Giant Embryo figure, which was actually hand-cast by Chris, he created an adorable baby version of the nunchaku-wielding turtle, Michelangelo. The custom figure has been titled "Cowababa."

I just love all the little touches put into this pint-sized ninja, like his tiny hand grasping his bandanna. So cute! You'll also notice that the shell is nice and glossy while the turtle's body bears a rich, matte finish. He weighs in at a hefty 3 and a half grams. 

Cowababa is one of a kind and those interested in owning him should contact Creo Design by email at csacreo[at]gmail[dot]com. This special bundle of joy will cost you £800. Be sure to have some pizza ready.

A look at ToyCon UK's wares and exclusives photo
A look at ToyCon UK's wares and exclusives
by Brian Szabelski

ToyCon UK opens up this weekend, and many of the major British designer artists will be in attendance (with some surprises, too). Add in the fact that many will be bringing their own pieces to Baden-Powell House, and you have a list of exclusives and releases too long to mention.

Well, we've tried, at least. After the jump, you'll find an extensive list, outlining just about everything (and everyone) we know to expect for the show. Some are more specific or detailed than others (based on what the artists have released), so there may still be updates to come this week. In any case, for the rundown so far, you'll want to head past the jump.
