KAWS, a New York-based artist and designer of limited edition clothes and toys, is having an amazing year. First, he designed the limited edition moonman statue for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Second, his show at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, UPS AND DOWNS opened to rave reviews two weeks ago in Kansas City.
Now he has concocted a wildly genius idea for his Instagram followers to recreate his artwork as Halloween costumes. He re-posted photos of some of his favorite recreations on his Instagram account. The winning costume will receive a KAWS piece.
Aside from the utter “amazingness” that is receiving a KAWS piece is the sheer creativity his Instagram followers are displaying with their costumes. Here are a few of my favorites below. Which ones do you like?
