Note the shake and go wig ordered from Amazon to blend seamlessly into the human race. Caught here in a quiet moment of “reading” atop a popper pedestal. Feel the Rush and Prosper, bitches.

Queer Chair Ornament Raffle Ticket

Handmade by Ash Samuels

The uncomfortable truth is that for 5,000 years, chairs have been designed with little to no regard for the variety of random ways queers will want to sit in them. This prototype was designed to anticipate ever-shifting physical needs: cozy and fluffy, but firm enough for napping and/or business. The excess pillows and blankets are crucial for burying arms and legs in certain expert level poses proven to maximize hygge.

• One of a kind
• Approx. 7 inches wide x 4.125 inches long x 4.25 inches deep
• Ribbon length: 3 inches
