The Art of Darkness

Teenage Mutant Ninja Link Dumps

Van Essie – “Rogue taxidermist” who incorporates bits of dead things into fantastical, creepy sculptures. This one just wigs me right out.

The Beautiful and the Damned – Coffee table book of photographs featuring iconic punk rockers.

How to Create an Antique Mirror Effect – Great tutorial for bestowing spooky vintage character on a modern mirror.

Skull Fairisle Cardigan – The rather prim styling makes a nice juxtaposition with the skulls. It looks like something a librarian in Transylvania would wear. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Barbie Zombies – A whole gardenful of thrifted Barbies-turned-zombie.

Aleister Crowley’s Rice Recipe – Make rice like Mr. Golden Dawn himself. (I keep getting distracted by his inability to spell “colander.”)

SpookyGrrrl – Etsy seller specializing in gothy bath products such as glycerin soap skulls and bats.

Chinese Matchbook Monsters – Chris Sims found a bunch of Chinese matchbooks with traditional monster illustrations, but no description of what the monsters were supposed to be. So he made up his own. I can’t imagine the real descriptions are as wonderful.

Tiny Crochet Pumpkin – Pattern and tutorial for an adorable, wee pumpkin.

Long-Forgotten – Blog devoted to Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Some nice detail stuff.

Vampire Dinner Party – Some great ideas from Hostess with the Mostess. (Hit their Halloween tag for loads of other wonderful suggestions.)

Flip – Restaurant which specializes in high-end burgers. I mention it here entirely because of one menu item they offer, a milkshake made of foie gras and chocolate that they call–I swear to god–Offaltine.
