The Art of Darkness

Stuff I Found While Looking Around

March 11th, 2015 by Cobwebs

It’s time for another bunch of random stuff I’ve found which I want to share but can’t hang a whole post on. Some of them have no attribution, so if you happen to know the source for any of these please leave a note in the comments. (Click to view larger.)

Bat Manicure

Bat Manicure

The Facebook group I found this on vaguely credited VampireFreaks, but I didn’t see any similar photos and didn’t feel like registering to do an in-depth search. Anyway. These would be impossible to type with, but I love the wavy edges.
Poe Pocket Watch

Poe Pocket Watch

This lovely sculpture is by All Natural Arts
Fluffy Moth

Fluffy Moth

Oversize moths seem to be a fairly popular subject for textile arts, and they always make me sort of melancholy because I want a kitten-sized moth as a pet. This lovely example is by Yumi Okita; you can see more of her work here.
Castle Bed

Castle Bed

Huh. This is the first time I’ve ever done a Google image search and gotten back nothing but Facebook pages. That’s vaguely disheartening. Anyway, this is a completely awesome bed/play area (or bunk bed; it’s hard to tell). I kind of want a bed like this.
Carved Skull

Carved Crocodile Skull

This astonishingly intricate piece is by Bali Organic Arts, which seems to be an artist collective. They’ve got a Facebook Page, website, and Etsy shop, where they sell carved wooden pieces as well as skulls. (It’s unclear whether their bone pieces are humanely harvested, so shop with caution.)
Steampunk Chandelier

Steampunk Chandelier

A reverse image search turns up nothing but aggregator sites, so I’m not sure where this came from originally, but it is sublime. The little spidery hands holding up each Edison bulb are the perfect combination of steampunk and goth.
Vampire Teabags

Vampire Teabags

This zipped pouch for carrying tampons is, as the Etsy store describes it, indiscreet. But it’s also, y’know, funny. It’d be pretty easily DIY-able with painted stencils or embroidery.
Notice to Time Travelers

Notice: Travellers from the Future

This faux PSA for time travelers is by Miguel Marquez. I quite like the idea of printing up similar notices and posting them anonymously.
Beetlejuice Cabinet

Beetlejuice Cabinet

Fiend4Halloween pointed me to this gorgeous piece by FourthDimensionCo. Their furniture is handmade, hence the price, but Fiend4Halloween notes that it might be possible to repurpose an existing cabinet with stencils. Be sure to also check out the same seller’s vintage-style carnival ticket booth.
Steampunk Fairy

Steampunk Fairy

I unfortunately have no information about who made this pretty thing; in a reverse image search, all roads lead to Pinterest and/or Facebook. I’d guess that the wings are something like plywood or maybe acrylic, cut with a jigsaw and painted. I adore the detailing on the dress.
Arm Chain

Shoulder Chain

I like this interesting jewelry idea by Etsy seller xTarnishedx. It’s like a fancy epaulet.
