The Art of Darkness

Leather Link Dumps of Phobos

August 26th, 2011 by Cobwebs

The Magic Clock – Build notes for a real clock similar to the “Weasleys Whereabouts” clock seen in the Harry Potter movies. It actually fetches location status from Twitter, which is entirely awesome.

How to Creep People Out – This is a brilliant idea.

Day of the Dead Makeup – Great roundup of Dia de los Muertos face painting.

Horrible Witch Face Jar – Gorgeously detailed hand-made stoneware jar. Sadly out of my price range.

Nightmare Before Christmas Wedding Shower – Great ideas and some lovely photos at the Hostess with the Mostess site.

10 Scariest Ghostly Images and Recordings – Some of these are indeed creepy.

Kristin Bauer PSA – The True Blood actress does a spot for the “It Gets Better” Project. (Hat tip to Linda)

The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities – An anthology of fantasy/SF/steampunky stories. This is the second anthology in the “Lambshead” series, the first being The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases. The editor discusses the latest book here.

Intricate Porcelain Skulls – Amazing, delicate filigree sculptures.

Zombie Engagement Photos – The photos from last week’s Link Dump that disappeared behind a password are all available here, plus a bit of backstory.

    The Horrible Witch Face Jar is out of just about anyone’s price range … but the Spock Vase? Hmmm? Actually, I am thinking about the Black Cat Salt and Pepper. Thanks for the links. They always provide inspiration.

    Ditto to what jeanne said about the skulls. Also the Horrible Witch Face looks more like a troll (pointy ears? no pupils?)—but of course, still amazing. Finally, “Eat, Drink, and Be Married” is the motto of every wedding ever, but I saw it first at the Nightmare Before Christmas shower page; I will use it so much next month that my cousins will try to kill me.
