The Link Dump Who Would be King

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making – Interesting young-adult “fairy tale.” There’s a useful review by Cory Doctorow toward the bottom of the page, and here’s the author explaining her “big idea” at John Scalzi’s site.

The Costume Mercenary – Blog devoted to “photographs, sketches and concept art of pseudo-historical, fantasy, steampunk and scifi costume.” Gorgeous stuff. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Rejected Young Adult Books – The first one cracked me up.

Living Dead Doll Pencil Sharpener – Amusingly gruesome.

Hobble Belt – Quality leather belt that converts into handcuffs, should you find yourself in need of such a thing.

Joyeria Osea – Etsy shop specializing in silver “bone” jewelry, like hand necklaces and finger bone rings.

Spiderweb Scissors – Needlecraft scissors with handles reminiscent of spiderwebs. This looks like the sort of thing that Morticia Addams would use when darning socks.

Memebase: Neville Sexybottom – Puberty can occasionally be very kind. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Wicked Bugs – New book by the author of Wicked Plants which explores the most “diabolical” members of the insect world.

Monster Tooth Pillow – Super-easy tutorial for making a cute pillow to hold children’s lost teeth until the tooth fairy can claim them.
