Top 10 Weird, Amazing and Unusual Snowmen

It’s snowing here in the UK and there is tons of it. While it does mean I can’t drive to work  it also means snowballs, snow angels and of course snowmen (and some snow women!) Some are big, plenty are rude but some make you stop for a second and stare at them, and it is those rare ones that I will be bringing you today. So without further ado…

Top 10 Weird, Amazing and Unusual Snowmen


Upside Down Snowman

10 – “I hope I don’t get head freeze!”

Don’t you just hate a show-off!? No, not the snowman showing off, doing a handstand, but the person who made it! A fairly simple design in its self, but pure genius in execution. Place the Wellington boots on top just makes the upside down snowman even better.

Log Face Snowman

9 – The lazy man’s guide to building a snowman.

Maybe there just wasn’t enough snow to make a whole Snowman, or maybe the person was just too lazy! But with one finger and a bite of carrot you too could make a tree trunk snowman.

Weight Lifting Snowman

8 – A key to a good workout is snow joke!

Do you even lift bro? Well, it is clear that this snowman does as this is a whole gym and work session made from nothing but snow and twigs! This snowman weightlifter is concentrating on the wrong thing, he needs to sort those skinny legs out.

Troll Head Snowman

7 – I so stupid I had nobody to dance with!

This goofy looking face would have made for one amazing showman, but for whatever reason he is destined to remain a nothing more than a snow head. I love the wild bit of twigs used for the hair.

The Snow Lady of Bute Park

6 – The lesser spotted snow, lady.

Some people just go that extra mile when it comes to making snowmen. With leaf eyes, fern tree hair and something plant like for his nose it is definitely one of the best-made snowmen you will see. Best of all is that this one was made in a park in Cardiff.

Snowman Massacre

5 – The Texas Snowman Massacre

Is this for Halloween, or just a very sick person’s mind at work? Whatever the reason a herd of snowman Zombies is enough to make anyone stop and stare. I have to say that a snowman’s blood I would have thought would have been water, not red blood.

Muscle Man Snowman

4 – Does that Snowman have a six-pack?!?

It seems that our snowman from number 8 has finally got round to building up his leg strength. I really do think this is the only snowman with a six-pack abs set! But those snowman guns need a mention as well. This guy definitely lifts.

Homer Simpson Snowman

3 – “D’oh!”

Some people just have to go that one better than everyone else. This Homer Simpson snowman is now only artistically correct, but on a dark night you might well imagine someone mistaking him for a real person as well!

Army of Snowmen

2 – Why make one when you can make an entire army!

Why make one snowman when you can make an entire army of them! This scary scene took several weeks to make and is not something you want to wake up and see in your back garden. But looking into the background it does seem that they certainly had the snow for it.

Snow Pig

1 – The Perfect Snow Pig.

Not so much snowman, more snow sculpture. This cute little snow pig was seen on the streets of a Tokyo shopping district, where there was a snow sculpture competition running. Needless to say, this was the winner.

  1. The imagination that made all these is wonderful.
    I saw a guy across the green from us making a family of large snowmen/women. I tried to take a photo as I drove passed (I did stop) but it didn’t work. When I came home some of the heads had been knocked off. Next day the same guy was out there rebuilding them. They were really good with hats, scarves buttons, arms and faces. But guess what a few hours later they were all headless again. …………..some people are heartless!

    Thanks for liking my blog 🙂

  2. Woah! Those are awesome snowmen, I especially like the upside down one, its so cool.
    Maybe one day the snowman I’ll build will reach some sort of mediocre standard. Haha if only XD cool blog btw

  3. OMG where do you find these things???? Loved the muscle snowman. I’m visiting my home town of London right now, and snow greeted me a day after I arrived last week, that’s what I get for staying away for 4 years. Loving your blog.

  4. Love the picture of the snowman army.
    What a great blog you’ve got; every post I looked at made made me smile this morning.

  5. LOL…these are fantastic snow beings…
    they’re the real connoisseurs of cold + should all come live in Canada…
    because it’s absolutely, positively freezing here!!!

  6. Lol these are great! You’re missing the Dalek and TARDIS “snowmen” or the actual snowmen from the Christmas Episode of the Doctor. Wow! I’m so nerdy LOL

  7. Brilliant compilation of snowmen (and woman). Most of them amusing, a couple of them a bit weird, especially the massacre scene, and the hundred mini snowmen a bit spooky! My favourite the first one, upsidesdown snowman! 😀

  8. Thanks for making the connection for us! You sound like an awesome person, and I love your top ten snowmen!!

  9. Check out my new blog..I’d like to hear your input on my imaginary friend Jimmy. 🙂

  10. Hello Russell. I saw you in my blog, when I wrote about London, England in my post. Nice to “meet” you. I am from Georgia, Tbilisi.

    These snowmen are so funny. especially the bodybuilder snowman 😀

  11. I’m from Malaysia in the Asia..its sunny all year round with plenty of rain…
    No snow…no sand either…Kuala Lumpur is far far from the beach ..huhu

    but there are times when we went back visiting relatives in London when its snowing… 🙂

  12. lol yes definatly, was very funny and im sure there was a few awkward moments with children asking their mummy’s “Whats that?” 🙂

  13. It did make me smile and groan, and yeah heavy snowfall here (today as well) and no I have not been out making snow art due to working. But I will have to try something if it is still there on the weekend.

  14. haha this post made me smile so much how cute, my favourite is the piggy one and the upside down snowman. Last year while driving my children round trying to find the best snowmen we found an igloo a proper one you could actually go and stand/sit down in it , the kids were amazed, and it was ginormous too. Then of course we seen the big willy one which had the kids in hysterics but made me blush 🙂
    great blog

  15. I hope it at least got a smirk! Yes, had quite a bit of snow fall overnight… so much so that my University class was cancelled, what a shame. How about you? And more importantly, have you created any snow art?!

  16. Awesome! I’m glad you discovered me. You will experience through my writings that I am not like other poets out there who write about the same cliche cries. I’m the most realist poet you will ever read and I will make you think, I’m a punkrocker poet. 🙂

  17. Oh man, and here I thought I was special. hahaha! What’s so shocking about hustling pool? I mean it’s not like other things I could have hustled. It was good clean fun, I made a few dollars off of guys that underestimated me is all. 😉 You’ve only been doing this 3 weeks? huh, seems longer then that. It’s always fun to stop by.

  18. hmmmm…You have a point there…I could just go to the beach and make me a (Sand Snow Men). Now, that’s a clever thought there Russell. 🙂

    Say, I’m curious is to how you discovered me? A pleasure to make your acquaintance russell. 🙂

  19. You did shock me, but you must remember that I have only been doing this blog for 3 weeks now so I am most grateful to talk to anyone let alone someone who is happy to keep coming back!

  20. Well if you got a few friends together it wouldn’t take near as long, but yes! It would be so worth it. You are still happy to hear from me even after I shocked you yesterday?? All right! 🙂

  21. Brrr! I like 7 and 10, of course the piggy is cute too. I love the army one. Would really be something to do in front of someone’s house over night….then surprise! 😉

  22. Now that is what I thought, but apparently it only took a few hours because if you look at them they are all fairly simple builds, just to small snow balls and some rocks for eyes. But boy does it look amazing.

  23. The pig is cute but I prefer the army. It must have taken so much effort to create all of those! They’re all really good though.

  24. Reblogged this on Paula Morical and commented: Completely off topic to my blog, but just too fun to pass up. Enjoy!
