Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

String Theory

Posted August 30, 2006
I found these guys on my last day walking the gift show at the Javits Center. As with anything I find on that day, I have to step back and wonder if it’s really cool, or if it just seems that way because I have “Javits Brain.” I’ve decided these little keychain-sized dolls, made from just one piece of string, are incredibly cool because they were made with a touch of really sick humor. My favorite is Bella—check out the wild hair and the piercings—but there are many others in a similar style (like Bella’s boyfriend “Sid” and also “Captain Bad”).
