Gargoyles and Grotesques – An extensive photo roundup.

Haunted Air – Interesting book featuring snapshots of American Halloween celebrations from 1875 – 1955.

Make a Beaded Spider – Easy tutorial for making pretty little spiders from beads and wire. I love the hairband idea.

Snake Vertebrae Necklace – This is both elegant and creepy. A matching bracelet and ring are also available.

Skully Plates – This is similar to a project I posted about a couple of months ago, but I really like the use of silver leaf in the finished plate. (via Creepy Cupcakes)

Crop Circle Quilt – Quilt inspired by one of the more intricate crop circle designs. Bonus points for being entirely made of recycled fabric.

Photorealistic Latch Hook Rug – Rug patterned after that weird anamorphic skull in Holbein’s The Ambassadors.

Handmade Victorian Fall Wedding – Some lovely ideas for a Halloween- or Harvest-themed wedding.

The Pumpkin House – Every year the mayor of Kenova, WV decorates his house with 3,000 jack-o’-lanterns. Whoa.

The Ghastlies – I love this fabric featuring an Addams-esque family. You can see slightly more detailed photos of the pattern here.

Plates to Die For – Vanity plates on hearses. (Hat tip to pdq)

Muppets with People Eyes – A Tumblr blog devoted to just exactly what it says on the tin. Kermit is creepy as hell.
