The Art of Darkness

Oh No! It’s Another Week of Link Dumps! Day 3

10 Gods of Death, Destruction, and the Underworld – A roundup. I’m not sure how you’d rank death gods, frankly. (via pdq)

Haunted Halloween Party – Shared mainly for the great eyeball cake pops.

Claw Mark Cupcakes – The tutorial suggests “blood” made from glucose syrup, but I suspect you could do this with strained raspberry jam, too.

Glass Symphony – Etsy shop specializing in lampworked glass figures, including gorgeous spiders, scorpions, octopi, and even rats.

Halloween with Liz Climo – Cute little cartoons of animals dressing in costume. The narwhal one makes me happy.

Halloween Saints – Sam – Cult of the Great Pumpkin is introducing a series of “Halloween Saints” art prints and T-shirts. So far they have Sam from Trick ‘r Treat, Mr. Dark from Something Wicked This Way Comes, Billy Butcherson from Hocus Pocus, Moundshroud from The Halloween Tree, and Sammi Curr from Trick or Treat.

Squash Confit Recipe – This squash with a brown-butter pecan sauce looks very Halloweeny paired with black (squid-ink) pasta.

Bat-Winged Heart – The perfect origami pattern to give to a spooky loved one.

Halloween Wreath Tutorial – EPBOT has a DIY Halloween wreath that features flowers with eyeball centers. You could also just make some of the eye-flowers and arrange them in a vase.

Weight Watchers Recipe Cards – Someone found a stash of recipe cards from 1974. The commentary is dynamite, and you could probably design a fairly horrific Halloween party menu around these suckers. (Hat tip to Empress Pam)
