The Birth of a Link Dump

Mystic Seer – Replica of the prop that menaced William Shatner in The Twilight Zone. The same company also makes a replica Talky Tina and a Kanamit Cookbook. I approve.

Costume of the Lower Orders – Illustrations of the common dress of London’s 19th-Century poor. Some great reference material for costuming.

Affadavit for the Tooth Fairy – One of the upsides to having lawyers as parents.

Awkward Affections – Etsy shop specializing in “awkward, geeky & diverting art.” Some of their wedding invitations are brilliant.

Call of Catthulhu – RPG with the premise that cats are the only ones saving the Universe from the evil of Things From Beyond Space.

New “Giger Bar” May Open – I had no idea that these even existed: H.R. Giger designed the “biomechanical” interiors for two bars in Switzerland and one in Japan. A new one may soon be opening in the U.S.

Goth Kodak Ad – This video amused me.

The Victorian Period – Fun Web-based game which tests the suitability of your Victorian manners. See whether you’d know how to behave in various situations; choose wrong, and there are consequences. Involving ninjas. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Rats with Teddy Bears – If this series of photos doesn’t make you fall down dead from the cute, I don’t want to be your friend. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Creepypasta is How the Internet Learns Our Fears – Interesting meditation on the proliferation of “creepypasta” and the nature of modern fear.
