Plastic Skull Chair – Uncredited work from an exhibit in Milan. It’d be fairly easy to create a similar effect with plastic-friendly paint (or with a small saw if you’re feeling ambitious).

Wee Little (sic) Fairy House – Immensely cute fairy house made from a tiny (1/44-scale!) gazebo meant for model railroad layouts.

Devout Dolls – I’ve mentioned this artist previously, but she’s got a couple of recent Flickr sets that I quite like: Monsters Among Us and Sad Circus.

What Happened Bandages – Bandages which label your owies with reasons like “Shark Bite” and “Ninja Attack.” (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

Goth Weddings – Photo roundup at Buzzfeed.

Tooth Fairy Calculator – Gorgeous “artifact” used by the Tooth Fairy to calculate tooth price.

Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House – A look at the fanboy collection in del Toro’s house. I think a couple of the portraits on the wall behind him are by Travis Louie.

Eerie Taxidermy Art – Interesting roundup, although I don’t agree with #6. The cow heads look sort of cuddly. (Hat tip to Chas)

Zombie Child Protection – Odd little blog which details the “experiences” of a social worker whose job is to keep an eye on children whose parents have been turned into zombies.

Torture Applique – Series of appliqued panels depicting various Medieval torture methods.

    I am most impressed by the use of petals as bed linens—that is not an easy medium to work in. (Although the brilliance of using a tiny acorn cap as a papasan has blinded me.)

    Also, love one of the goth bride’s black wings.

    The torture applique reminds me of my mom—she loves making appliqued Christmas things. Perhaps she will want to venture into the more obscure holidays…
