We plunged into the depths of the interwebs in search of the most unusual, bizarre, and sometimes really unpractical cases for Apple’s iPhone 5s
. Surprisingly, it turns out that many of these weird cases are available to buy at well-known locations like Amazon and eBay.
Of course, not everyone likes smartphone cases
. But lots of users just feel like something’s missing if their handset is naked and not protected against eventual drops and scratches. So, if you’re one of these users, you have an iPhone 5s, and want a case unlike most of the options out there, we might
have just what you need.
Each and every iPhone 5s case that we’re presenting below will definitely draw attention, essentially making your Apple device unrecognizable (at least when viewed from behind). Most of them are also compatible with the older iPhone 5.
You can certainly comment to let us know if you’d ever want to use any of these cases (or, who knows, perhaps you already own one). Also, make sure to zoom in to see all the details.
10 weird iPhone 5s cases
10 weird iPhone 5s cases
1. Giant Isopod Case for iPhone 5s / 5
Some folks in Japan find giant isopods cute. So there’s a silicon case that wraps around your iPhone 5S to make it look like this crustacean, while also rendering the handset’s camera unusable (since there’s no hole for the camera lens).
2. GIZMON iCA5 Case for iPhone 5s / 5
The GIZMON iCA5 transforms your iPhone 5S / 5 into a retro photo camera. A very large one, as you can see. The case is impact-resistant, and has its own shutter button and optical viewfinder. But that alone won’t make a photographer out of anyone.
3. 3D Sexy Lips Silicon Protective Case for iPhone 5s / 5
This pair of silicon lips is supposed to be tough and durable, molding “perfectly to your iPhone shape without compromising usability.” We’re really, really not sure about the last part, and neither about the sexiness of these so-called lips.
4. iMeshi Japanese Food (Unagi) Case for iPhone 5s / 5
Do you have a secret passion for Japanese food? Hide it no more with this case that reproduces a serving of fish (unagi) with rice. Too bad that the case blocks the rear camera completely - so you won’t be able to take photos of your friends’ faces when they see you using this thing.
5. iMeshi Japanese Food (Nikujaga) Case for iPhone 5s / 5
From the same category as the previous case, this one reproduces a mix of noodles, cooked vegetables, and meat. Bon appétit?
6. iMeshi Chocolate Cake Case for iPhone 5s / 5
Now that we’re getting used to food-related cases, perhaps you’ll care for some desert. This somewhat realistic case puts a chocolate cake on the back of your iPhone, complete with fruits and a couple of hearts. We’d be extremely careful using it, though, because that sharp Gâteau label looks dangerous.
7. Bunny Shaped Queue Case for iPhone 5s / 5c / 5
Turn your iPhone into a pet with this Bunny Shaped Queue Case. It’s available in black and white - giant ears included. Since bunnies can’t take photos, neither will you while using this case. And it appears that you won’t be able to view the whole screen, either. Ugh.
8. Teddy Bear case for iPhone 5S / 5 / 5C / 4s
The insanely-long-named “3D Cutely Teddy Bear Plush Toy Doll Cover Case” is exactly what it’s supposed (?) to be: a teddy bear that will wear your iPhone inside of it. Should be successful among 9-yr old girls. Then again, they don’t usually have iPhones. Hm. This thing is confusing.
9. Perfume Bottle TPU Case for iPhone 5S / 5
This Perfume Bottle case wants to make your iPhone a chic device, and includes a “chain” that lets you carry it like a purse. But who carries his / her perfume bottle like that when going out anyway?
10. Dokkiri Hand Case for iPhone 5s / 5
This has to be the strangest and creepiest iPhone case ever. Some of you may already know it, as it’s been available since the iPhone 4 came out. Well, starting mid-May it will also be available for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 (the images on the left show the iPhone 4 variant). We don’t know why anyone would want a realistic human hand on the back of their iPhone, but it appears that this case is popular in Japan. Perhaps they’re always celebrating Halloween there?
