They only come in sets of seven, eh? I'd love to just get a set of Wraths and Prides.

This is great. I've been searching forever for wine glasses that I can hold by a chain and gently drizzle into the slothful mouths of my guests.

The models for Pride and Lust should be swapped.

Pride looks challenging to drink out of without looking ridiculous and probably spilling wine all over your face.

I like the idea of a glass specially made for the vintage where the grapes of Wrath are stored, though.

I thought it was established that it's a mistake to look in the box?

If only they were subtler.

7 is such an awkward number for a cocktail party.

Pollomacho, you just had to go and ruin the perfectness of having only 7 comments in this thread, didn't you?

7 is such an awkward number of posts for a thread.

The 7 imbalances. Should be curable soon. Let's party... lol

The pictures need more Bea Arthur.

I was thinking Greed and Lust might swap- though I suppose Greed does look a little flaccid. And why should Envy get the fuzzy end of the lillipop?

Next challenge - seven virtues.

These are really damn cool, but I gotta say, I'm most impressed by the fact that an artist has a website which isn't made of unnavigable unnecessary Flash. Hamilton Designs, you have avoided the deadly sin of Annoying!

I guess the guy with the envy cup wishes he could drink without his wine spilling out all those holes?

The sloth one looks perfect for absinthe.

so the greed one has the little chambers to save the wine for later? seems like maybe it should not even have an opening at all, to save it all for later?

also, i think the gluttony one should come with a fry daddy.

just sayin.

Or maybe you should only drink rendered pork fat from it.

I am experiencing a bit of greed and lust right now, myself. They're quite neat and very pretty.

The envy one is hilarious.

7 is such an awkward number for a cocktail party.

I have attended two different and unrelated PWELGAS-themed* cocktail-costume parties, actually. Lusts and Gluttonies are always in abundance, because that's just so easy. Avarice is kind of tough to pull off without looking like Envy or Pride, though.

*well how do YOU remember them?
