POLYESTERVILLE I remember, in the not so distant past, a time when ugly sweater parties were a novelty.

The idea of raiding thrift stores for the perfect holiday knit disaster was entirely new and attending a party secretly donning your grandmothers applique Frosty the Snowman cardigan was fun and fresh.

Thanks to hipsters, though, ugly sweater parties are now ubiquitous in December.

Because of the increasingly rote nature of this kitsch party prop, people have started to get creative. In order to win a coveted award for an ugly sweater, some careful crafting is often required.

Most people break out the tinsel, glitter and pom-poms, and go to town making a custom creation worthy of everyones shock and awe. Lights and battery packs are often involved.

One handily man won his work ugly sweater contest with this beauty, and because of its existence, we should stop having similar competitions in the future. This sweater wins it all, forever.

Watch the video of his fully interactive and startlingly realistic diorama/sweater and bask in the glow of both the simulated fire in the hearth and brilliance of the man who made it.
