The Flylashes are actually quite an odd alternative to fake eyelashes. Artist Jessica Harrison takes dead flys legs and attaches them onto the eye for what are aptly called 'flylashes.'

The inventive looking false eyelashes are sort of on the grosser side of beauty. The crooked and bent lashes are glued onto the eye and are meant to look like luscious eyelashes. They're definitely interesting.

Implications - Morbid products such as fly eyelashes manage to capture an audience that is obsessed with darker life occurrences such as death. These consumers welcome death rather than run away from it. By embracing it, this audience is accepting of using products that seem to glamorize a morbid idea.
