You know, I think if you just followed her around for a few hours, you’d probably be able to get a photo of this.
When did you move to New Haven, CT, Helen?
Oh, how I wish I were talented in “realistic-style oil painting”.
i just like the “and yes, i am serious” remark at the end. it’s really bad when even YOU know that your request is ludicrous.
Horses might be fine
But I won’t stop until that horn is mine.
Then I’ll be more famous
For eating a unicorn in a painting
on reg-on regretsy.
I would say based on the size of the canvas, the amount of time it will take to complete it, the cost of supplies, and the cost of my dignity, that’s going to cost you more than $350.
What’s the color palette of the dining room? I’d hate to paint that in spring tones, only to discover you have purple flock wallpaper….
Seriously, ISUS. Will it match my dead unicorn couch?
if you’ve got them twisted imagination to dream up this little norman rockwell scene, why not attempt the painting yourself? why draw anyone else into this dali-esque nightmare?
creativity is as creativity does, or some such shit.
I have words now. How is it that this already has 3 bids? I want to see those bids! Who are the realistic-style oil painters who would bid on this insanity?
CORRECTION: 7 bids
Wish I could see them…
He stole my idea for the next Regretsy book cover contest!
Fuck, I’d paint that.
“…convo me for bonus fee for scracth-n-sniff…”
The decimal needs to be moved to the right at least one place, possibly 2, for a really decent oil painting. I’m thinking Rowena or Boris at a minimum…
I guess everyone grows out of their tie-dyed pot leaf wall hanging at some point.

They want a “realistic style oil painting” for a obivously I got some bad shit man induced idea?
Who the fuck would know if it was realistic??
When you need to start out your request with Please and end with I am serious you are in deep shit!
I am off to bid on this request right now…….this just screams my style. haha
I’m sorry, but this is awesome. I wish I thought of it first.
I’ll bet Lady Gaga would pay more than $350 for it if someone does a really great job on that painting.
I wish we could see it when it’s done!
Why bother to paint one? Just snap a pic of one of the many many times it happens in real life.. what? This is isn’t a regular occurrence in your neighborhood?
I just bid. Hope she picks me. It would be fun to paint!
I am praying that Roger Dean responds to this.
Well, at least they didn’t ask for a picture of her -fucking- a unicorn…
This is something I would totally do… if I worked in oils. Unfortunately I normally do acrylic and colored pencil, not oil. Otherwise I would actually bid on this. I have WAY too many images of things being messily devoured. There is a reason my business cards say Cute, Cuddly, and Cannibalistic on ‘em.
Crap, now I want to do this anyway but I have an art show I’m supposed to be doing non-gorey stuff for…
Too bad the person is not open to Charcoal/Pastels. My boyfriend could rock this out, he gets totally off the wall requests like this from time to time.

dang it…it was supposed to be this:
Actually I think this is the coolest alchemy request I’ve ever seen. I mean, at least it’s arguably POSSIBLE that the subject matter could happen.
Not like the assclown who wanted to pay twenty cents so his “overweight” wife could get off while having sex with him.
This just reminds me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone… Voldemort hunched over the unicorn, drinking its blood…
And sadly, I actually think the idea is sort of neat. Definitely a conversation starter. lol Also, if the requester weren’t from New Haven, I’d think it was my good friend. He has a weird obsession with Lady Gaga…
Raven, if you get the bid you know you are going to have to post the painting on regretsy for all to see!!!
How do we know this isn’t Gaga herself?
A) This is awesome, I hope prints of this painting go on sale.
B) I feel like a unicorn is too safe for Lady Gaga, she would be more likely to go for something a little more daring and harder to catch. I’m thinking spinx, liger, mer-person. Maybe a pegacorn, they have more pizazz.
C) Can this painting have a motion activated sound effect? Maybe the song from #5.
D) What would Gaga wear while gnawing on raw flesh? Rhinestones? Latex? It has to be realistic!
#28 – Definitely. I want to see this finished product! I hope, even if Raven doesn’t do it, the requester or artist finds us out, and lets us in on the results!
Snarling blood-covered Lady Gaga.
Disemboweled unicorn carcass.
How does one tell the difference?
This isn’t an original idea… I see painting like this in thrift shops all the time…
I agree, I would like to see Raven’s interpretation…you’d be the clear choice, Raven because you have already done road kill before
Good luck, hope they accept your bid!
She is requesting an oil painting of Lady Gaga devouring a unicorn carcass. I have no doubt that she is serious. I only wish my painting skills were up to her standards. (I can do a “cartoon-y version”, if she likes.)
Maybe the “I let my paintings speak for themselves” guy (below) can answer her prayers.
I just had a thought. Wouldn’t a painting of the paparazzi devouring Lady Gaga in a unicorn outfit be equally if not more compelling?
A unicorn? No no! If it’s not Gaga eating a dragon or her boyfriend, I won’t do it.
Sounds like a job for Thomas Kincaid.
The only thing worse than what I imagine this might look like would be if it were to be painted by Thomas Kincaid.
@Skully, I think TK has unicorn steaks every night, so he’s got a few on-hand–but Lady Gaga declines his dinner invites.
ISUS, good Lord on a board, that dinner date would be an awesome View in a Room!
Oh man. I dont really know if my painting skills are up to snuff for this bizar but probably difficult to exicute concept, but if I was an etsy seller (Im not) I would totally bid on this.
WAIT A MINUTE.
Has anyone else noticed how big this guy wants this painting? 3′ x 3′? WHAT?
I SO hope we can get this in the “view in room” post soon.
@Euranna–I did; he needs to add another 0 on the end.
@Skully–have you ever seen the photoshop spinoffs of Kinkade’s “paintings”? Some are worth a view.
#48 Yes I noticed. At $350.00 she is getting a deal really but I still bid. It would be fun to paint and share here
That would totally ROCK as an oil painting. But anyone who can pull it off should be asking for waaaay more than $350.
#52 I agree but sometimes a project is just too fun to pass up…
She can snack on this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/unicorn-meat.shtml while looking at her lovely painting.
If I could paint, I would do it. . .
… So, even though I already have nine million paintings on my plate (well, more like two; one of them being 6′ x 4′), I bid on this. Though I’m thinking about doing it anyway. My landlady would fucking love this.
Oh Lady Gaga, you can afford to pay more than $350 for this. Or you could just make a music video featuring you eating a unicorn. No one would think it was out of the ordinary.
Unicorn heart on the dance floor?
I can and would do it but the price is not fair. It needs to be doubled. Seriously.
Bidding on it right now. I’m doubling the price and extending the time, but I can do that shit. If you want lady gaga and an effing unicorn, you do that shit right.
OK…I’m the Mike that submitted it. But there are three things about this that scare me.
1. The requester is in my hometown.
2. the deadline is my birthday.
3. I specifically told my kids I wanted Miley Cyrus eating a unicorn!
I mean submitted it to Helen….not submitted it to Etsy..lol
To truly do justice to the subject, it should be painted on black velvet.
I also envision Voldie slurping up unicorn blood in the Forbidden Forest!
raven @22 and creepydolls @26: why not just make it anyway for the hell of it? Is there a rule that you can’t make an item described in an alchemy brief if you weren’t the one chosen by the requester?
#65 Great idea! We should just FLOOD Etsy with paintings of Gaga eating Unicorns.
Does she take Photoshops?
(Original taken from http://www.tinyurl.com/y8sm8vl, because I don’t want to get my ass sued.)
I don’t get it. Someone explain.
On black velvet one hopes.
This could REALLY be done properly by fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta. http://frankfrazetta.org
How about this?
Loved the whole idea, just had to make it.
Over my dead body!
