63 Fake Finds

From Fake Sperm Whales to Anti-Theft Lunch Bags

— March 6, 2010 — Fashion
After viewing all the fake finds on Trend Hunter, I don't know what to believe anymore. It seems like everything in the world can be faked!

Well, maybe not everything. 'Fake it til you make it' has become my personal motto as of late, so I'm definitely enjoying these fake innovations. Become a pretender just like me today and check out this collection of fake finds.

Implications - Those feeling down will definitely want to check out fake webcams for the ugly as a pick-me-up. Now the physically unappealing can totally converse with much more attractive individuals under the guise of altered appearances. The fake object wallpaper is also noteworthy as it makes it seem as though your wall is actually adorned with cool items.
