The Art of Darkness

Another Darn Week of Link Dumps: Day 3

March 16th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Twin Peaks Gothic – “Every weekend, there is a Milford wedding. You never hear what happened to the last bride. ”

Gravestone Dog Toy – Cute plush gravestone with mildly-inexplicable candy corn bats. There’s a haunted house version, too. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

DIY Palmistry Hand – Tutorial for turning a thrifted mannequin hand into a pretty display piece.

Hillary White – Artist whose portfolio includes a bunch of portraits featuring movie villains cuddling adorable animals. Geyser of Awesome has collected several examples. Godzilla snuggling fawns is a perfect combination for those of us old enough to remember this, but I think she really missed a trick giving lambs to Jason Voorhees instead of Hannibal Lecter.

50 Little Goth Problems – “Accumulating a Victorian-esque collection of artful clutter is all well and good until it comes to dusting it all.”

Blood Lollipops – Easy instructions for making lollipops that look like they have swirls of blood inside.

Kabbalah Vodka – Russian vodka which riffs on the old belief that Jewish religious rites required the blood of infants by including a hand-blown glass baby in the bottle.

Medusa’s Web – Tim Powers has a new “secret history” novel, this one involving Rudolph Valentino’s death. He discusses his inspiration here.

Crocheted Owl Pellet – The site this post links to doesn’t appear to exist any more so I don’t know if there was a pattern, but this awesome owl pellet with teensy crocheted bones can serve as inspiration if nothing else.

Cult of Weird – A “museum of oddities and obscurities” with categories like “From the Grave” and “Weird Crime.”
