You may recall my post talking about salvaging at the Yellowknife dump. And if you do, you might also remember that I found a Nintendo Power Glove while I was there with Kira a couple of months ago. Now, if you remember that, you might also recall that I had high hopes that Ian would turn my treasure into a lamp, like he had done for himself with a trophy fish he was given by a couple of his friends. Well, the day has finally come. I am now the proud owner of one of Ian's illuminating masterpieces. And without further ado, I present to you the Power Glove lamp:
The blue 'arm' even bends so I can direct the light wherever I want it. The red thing is an enormous clamp that will hook on to whatever I please. Pretty neat, right!? I found this little beauty waiting for me when I came home from housesitting on Saturday, and I immediately started laughing. It's just so very Ian.
Just like the head he made me...
Isn't he crafty!? The horns are made out of the legs from a doll and the tongue used to be the tentacle off a monster squid that Ian found at the dump. I wear the sunglasses from time to time, so he gets different ones every once and awhile. I figure, depending on the season, I'll change his style with a new accessory.
