Thanks to an awesome visionary known only as the GIGABEETLE, we’re learning that, when he isn’t busy battling Kaiju, Godzilla has a very active social life. There’s cosplay and gaming and dancing and coloring and exercising and so much more.
Toad Purses and BagsKOBJA is a unique collection of fashion accessories for men and women, created and developed by Monika Jarosz.
It took many months of research, fine-tuning and testing to “give birth” to her first collection of KOBJA accessories. Monika only works with complete toad skins*, which, once recovered, are tanned and transformed by taxidermists, using a unique, detailed process. It takes more than 14 stages to obtain a high quality leather! The colours of the leather are produced at the tawery in Millau, while the assembly and fine stitching work are done at KOBJA’s Parisian workshop, a process which makes each piece totally unique.
* Non-protected species, which was introduced into Oceania from South America. This highly poisonous toad is in the process of destroying several local species, and since these problems began to occur, animal defence associations have recommended its selective elimination. In this way, each toad skin is recycled, not destroyed.

thanks to hope-nebula for showing me that the other toad purses are just total fails. :p but still… wearing a toad as a fashion accessoire seems weird to me :/
