40 Manmade Monsters

From Creepy Couture Bags to Glamorous Goblins

— June 20, 2009 — Unique
Many of us used to believe that monsters lived underneath our beds, in our closets or in the basement. So why have we glorified these creepy creatures in adulthood?

These manmade monsters are primarily made by adults who've probably outgrown their fear of the goblin underneath their racecar bed. From high-end art exhibitions that are solely dedicated to monsters to futuristic creations made from metal, organic matter or soft fabric, these creepy creations prove that monsters aren't so scary anymore. Or are they?
