There is no such thing as food that’s too cute to eat — because food should be eaten, always — but if there were, these adorable, edible Disney characters would qualify.

Artist Erin Jang, working with the blog Oh My Disney, has been crafting whimsical masterpieces out of regular ingredients such as salami, hot dog buns, zucchini, seaweed and rice. Her muses? Disney characters. Olaf from Frozen, Flounder from The Little Mermaid and Pluto count among her distinguished subjects. What better way to get kids to try new foods then disguising them as a beloved cartoon character?

Our inner Disney nerds wish we could have Jang over for dinner. Fortunately, her pieces look easy enough to recreate at home.

Here non-Disney work is inspiring too: Take this face made entirely of Christmas desserts.

Jang has us fantasizing about our dream evening: Curling up with The Aristocrats and eating a cat face made of candy.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
