Gloomy Bear

Gloomy Bear PlushHere’s a little critter that’s perfect for the perkygoth. Graphic designer Mori Chack developed Gloomy Bear as the antithesis of the excessively cute characters peddled by Sanrio and Disney. He describes it as a 2 meter tall, violent, pink bear that eats humans (its human “friend” is covered with cuts and bruises).

The list of Gloomy Bear products is surprisingly diverse, including all kinds of plush (like the vampire bear shown here), hats, keychains (with extra blood), mittens, and much else.

I think the product line is too extensive for this to really be considered ironic any more, but bloody fanged accessories still beat fluffy cute ones.
