I confess, I love Wes :: the Besty of Etsy Wes Anderson Edition

I just saw Moonrise Kingdom. Again.  For the third time.

Something about the movie just gets under my skin in a good way. I could probably write an entire post on my love of this movie alone. Heck, I could write a whole post on how much I love Francis McDormand’s fabulous wardrobe of vintage Lily Pulitzer dresses worn with Aran cardigans and galoshes.  I rarely buy movies, but this one I know I will own and watch whenever I’m feeling blah and need a bit of cozy in my life.

But I must admit I feel that way about almost all of Wes Anderson’s films.  Rushmore movies me to tears.  Life Aquatic has a very special place in my heart. And don’t even get me started on the Royal Tanenbaums. Everyone has their favorite Wes Anderson moments. I particularly love when two characters are in closets!

But what does an uber Wes Anderson fan go for little mementos of the film that can make them sigh with happiness when they look at it? Why Etsy, of course, where there are tons of crafty folks equally obsessed with Wes Anderson. Sweet!  Here are some of my favorites.

I’d so wear this necklace from Etsy seller, Coffin Rock Shop

Remember when Max gave Herman Blume his other Perfect Attendance pin. Yeah. I cried too.  And now you can have those pins too. From Etsy seller, Steve Zizzou.

These cufflinks from Angela Grace Jewelry are perfection and a sweet ode to the Fantastic Mr. Fox.

This little gem is just too perfect to not love. And want. And buy! From Etsy seller, Clementine Clay.

Tote your Wes Anderson love around in this loving ode to the Darjeeling Limited bag. From Etsy seller, SuPmon.

Ha! My favorite Bottle Rocket quote! From Etsy seller, GracyMay.

And the posters. Oh, man. I want them all for my Wes Anderson shrine I need to make.

This Royal Tanenbaum’s portrait quartet from The Drew Bank has my heart.

However Monster Gallery has such endearing Wes Anderson movie inspired posters. Sigh!

Don’t even get me started on the genius work of Etsy seller , Cladia Varosio. Love.

Intern, get me a campari.  Oh, Steve… Genius. From Etsy seller, Michael Sapienza.

Oh, man, that was fun to find all of these great pieces.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorites, right now. Enjoy!

Sob! I’d love to know–are you a Wes Anderson fan? And if so, what is your favorite Wes Anderson movie/scene?

    Amazing collection- I might have to nab a few of those prints! I love all Wes Anderson movies but Rushmore will always hold a special place in my heart!

    • Dottie says

      I hear you, girl. There is something about that movie. A friend of mine ordered pencils that said, “Rushmore Academy.” I was so jealous.

  2. Jenny B says

    I absolutely loved this post. Rushmore is my favorite movie EVER, and my favorite scene is every single scene that Bill Murray is in, in every single Wes Anderson film. Does that make sense?

    • Dottie says

      I know, right? Bill Murray just slays me. There is something about him when he speaks the lines Wes Anderson writes for him. Sigh!

    life aquatic is my fave. hands down. so. HAPPY!

    • Dottie says

      Girl, I know how you feel! I wanted to play David Bowie’s Queen Bitch after my wedding ending because that end song makes me so happy, but of course I’m really not a Queen Bitch so it didn’t make sense to do it ;-0

  4. Nikki says

    We have the Steve Zissou print from John Gomes and the Royal Couple print from Lucky Jackson. I would recommend them both. They make me smile every single time I look at them.

    • Dottie says

      If that isn’t enough of a good reason to buy it, I don’t know what is. Art should make you smile! YEAH!

    Love Rushmore :-)
    have yet to see moonrise kingdom, I keep forgetting its out (mama brain from chasing after Judah all day long) Hopefully I can see it before it leaves theaters ;-)

  6. Dottie says

    Oh, I hear you! I want to live in that movie.

    Funnily enough, my parents saw it today and when they read the post they told me how much they hated the movie. Ah well! Different strokes…

  7. Tiffanie says

    Who would’ve thunk it? That there would be all this wonderful movie art, and that it would be based around Wes Anderson? All of the graphics here are incredible. LOVE the Claudia Varosio posters. LOVE it all! Tenenbaums is my favorite, but I have yet to see Moonrise Kingdom. xo

  8. Susan says

    I adore Wes movies too, especially Rushmore. That movie will forever be a fave of mine. I have been wanting those posters for awhile now and now I need the perfect attendance pin! So many fave scenes and lines from that movie but the one I always quote is “You were in Nam? Were you in the sh#*t?” “Yes, I was in the Sh#*t” and “I like you’re nurses uniform guy” “these are O.R. Scrubs” “O R they?”

  9. Amber Liddle says

    Love love love Wes Anderson! Still have to see Moonrise Kingdom, I too have mamabrain and need to get a babysitter! My favorite is Royal Tenenbaums, I just love it. And I have been a fan of Claudia Varosio for a long time, she has a print of David Bowie paper dolls–so amazing! I have been wanting to get a RT print, I think you just convinced me!

  10. Leslie says

    I saw Moonrise Kingdom a few weeks ago and was crying by the end. The sets, the colors, the costumes…they are all so perfect!

    Royal Tenenbaums is my all-time favorite.

    “What happened out there, Baumer?”

  11. Tammy T says

    I think Rushmore will always be my fav, though Moonrise is the first I have shared with a daughter (15 year old) and she was moved as much as me!

    Love this collection!
