The Art of Darkness

Another Doggone Week of Link Dumps: Day 3

November 12th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Calendar of Boring Men – This is one of those not-even-goth-adjacent links that just amuse me personally. The Dull Men’s Club has released a calendar featuring such worthies as the president (and founder) of the UK Roundabout Appreciation Society and a man who has spent 30 years collecting more than 20,000 milk bottles.

Paranormal Portraits – Use LEDs to give family photos glowing red eyes.

Rock On! – Instructions from Martha Stewart on “How to Throw a Punk Rock-Inspired Party” for kids “that won’t turn into a riot.” When I got to the “nosh pit” I facepalmed so hard that I combined phrenology with palmistry.

Janet Stephens – YouTube channel full of historical hairdressing tutorials based on archaeological research and primary sources. (via Jan)

Haunted Mansion Inspired Dress – Gorgeous Victorian-ish dress made with custom fabric. (Hat tip to Fiend4Halloween)

Gummy Python – Eight feet long, 26 pounds, 36,000 calories. And $150.

Trilobite Beetles – I had no idea these awesome-looking bugs existed.

Broken Monsters – Novel by the author of The Shining Girls, which io9 describes as “gothic internet horror.”

DIY Spider Necklace – This is less a necklace and more a collar, but the method (puffy paint on tulle) is a great idea.

Edgar Allan Poe Lunchbox – I am heartbroken that I didn’t see this before Shadowboy started school this year.
