Killer Cosmetics. Ted Noten Creates Feminine Firearms As Makeup Kits.




Amsterdam-based Atelier Ted Noten (known for his unique jewelry designs) has designed the white 'Dior 001' gun and the black 'Chanel 001' gun as part of a larger series entitled '7 necessities for a woman to feel like a woman through the eyes of a man.'

Branded as Dior 001 and Chanel 001, the white and black pistols pack a feminine punch as they double as make-up bags. The two 3D printed nylon guns are vehicles of finding a new language between the 3D printing technique and traditional goldsmithing.

The feminine firearms are retrofitted with hand-tooled 18-karat gold details and loaded with cosmetic ammo. There’s a lip gloss and wand in the muzzle, the loading chamber doubles as a pill compartment (complete with pills, including Viagra), 100 grams of certified silver bullion in the Dior gun clip, 50 grams of 24-karat gold in the Chanel, a toothpick and, in some models, a hairpin and a small vial of perfume. The guns also conceal a 4-gigabyte jump drive.

CHANEL 001:





“Seven Necessities” debuted at Amsterdam's Gallery Rob Koudijs and was exhibited at Art Basel by the Ornamentum Gallery of Hudson, N.Y.



If you purchase one of the make-up kits, Noten’s Atelier can customize it and arrange refills. The white Dior gun costs 8,000 euros, (about $11,500 USD) and The black Chanel gun costs over $17,000. That's a pretty penny for any pistol packing mamma.

Damned dangerous in this day and age.

Waiting for the first story about a woman "touching up her face" and getting shot by an edgy Ohio cop...

yeah i don't want to look like i'm shooting myself in the face, just to put on lip gloss. this doesn't seem very handy to me.

Its such a fantastic tool for a girl to keep herself safe from hooligans and to keep her self beautiful as well.

We've seen this before, on the "Simpsons". (Anybody remember Homer's Make-Up Shotgun?)
