In my last visit to Dubai, I found this cool memorabilia store in Dubai Mall, its called the Collector’s Palace. The store sells unique collectibles like miniature cars, Porsche 917 couch, the mustang pool table, and lots of cool collectible models.
There is something magical about those miniature cars, I just enjoy spending time in these kind of store because it feeds your sense of joy and appreciation even if you don’t purchase any of them.
Around 40 ‘sand artists’ from around the world attended the Sand Sculpture Festival on the beach of Blankenberge in Belgium. Over 10,000 tonnes of sand was used to create the amazing ‘sand village’ as part of the festival’s 20th anniversary.
The festival, which runs until the end of the month, has a fairytale theme and includes magestic castles and enchanting palaces as well as a host of comic book favourites.
Visitors can take walk-through tours of the sand village where other comic book favourites such as Tintin and the Smurfs are also on display.

He started off with a helmet and end up make the whole suit. Mark Pearson from Bradford, West Yorkshire UK built an amazing life-size replica of the Iron Man outfit using fibre glass and 400 sheets of cardboard that were carved into silicone mold, it took him 14 months building the model suit.
As you can see from the above picture, mark is a 5ft 6in and won’t fit into the 6ft 2in suit, so he asked his friend Darren Higgins who took some time out from managing his local supermarket to wear the costume.
Another cool homemade suit -picture above- was made by Anthony Le from Inglewood, California. He built an Iron Man suit made out of eco-friendly recycled plastic. He created a couple of models, in my opinion this is one of his best suits. He integrated LED lights for the eyes and the nuclear reactor with a motorized face plate. It took him about two weeks to built it. Watch him showing off his suit in the video below.

This amazing silicon bust of Michael Jackson “Tribute to a Thriller” is created by sculptor Jordu Schell. The details in this sculpture are so real and creepy it will make you think it’s going to speak up.
