A finger-tip-sized replica of author Hunter S. Thompson famous suitcase as described in the 1971 book, ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream.’ Suitcase by artist Faith G of Etsy store FaiithIcus.
“We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers… and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.”
—Hunter S. Thompson describing his infamous suitcase full of party favors in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream
As someone who has become a bit of an accidental dollhouse expert over the past few years, even I was caught a bit off guard when I came across these truly unique dollhouse-sized items that will turn your tiny dream home into a proper drug den. Playing with your dolls just got fucking real.
Miniatures artists are always pushing the limits when it comes to how small their art can be. The work I’ve featured in this post includes tiny replicas of all kinds of vice such as 1:12th scale glass bongs (which are sadly not functional, perhaps break it to your dolls gently), pipes, joints, and a bag of coke which comes with a handy doll-sized pre-rolled 100 dollar bill. From a tiny bottle of Jack Daniels to mini-containers of morphine, if your dolls like to party as hard as you do, then this is their lucky day.
However, the award for the greatest dollhouse accessory of all time goes to a young woman by the name of Faith G of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Faith is the artist responsible for a minuscule, spot-on reproduction of author Hunter S. Thompson’s narcotic-filled suitcase famously described in his 1971 book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (the quote, as well as the little suitcase both appear at the top of this post). Below you can see images of the various doll-sized drugs, booze, and boxes full of teeny-tiny sex toys which will run you anywhere from $2.99 for a couple of joints (a bargain!) to $60 bucks for HST’s miniature suitcase. NSFW-ish.
