The Art of Darkness

My Best Friend’s Link Dump

Haunted Dollhouse – I posted about The Bloggess’ haunted dollhouse project a while back. She recently uploaded a bunch of more-detailed photos, and they are just gorgeous.

Buffy the Riveter – Sadly I missed the shirt when it was up on Teefury, but there are prints available here.

Pair’em Scare’em – Cute nail polish duo from OPI. They also have a collection of Spookette minis.

Mexican Skeletons Clutch – Pretty vinyl clutch with a sugar-skull detail. Something similar might be DIY-able.

10 Creepy, Sexy Fairy Tales That Should be Films – I agree with io9 that Snow White doesn’t need another retelling.

12 Craziest Eyeshadows – Several of these aren’t really eyeshadows, but the “Nightmare Before Christmas” makeup and the “zippers” are both worth a look.

Yep – Bwahahahaha.

Spooky Places – Google Map of strange and scary places to visit. The owner welcomes collaboration.

creepygirl – This is nothing more than one of those lifelike Japanese androids, and it does nothing more than follow your cursor around the screen, but DAMN it smacks you right in the Uncanny Valley.

Haunted Times – The magazine is re-launching and their “appetizer” issue is free online.

Naver – This Webcomic strip uses Javascript to unexpectedly animate some of the frames. It is unnerving as hell. Really. You have been warned. (Incidentally, I don’t think Naver is actually the name of the comic, but I don’t read Korean.)

    Oh, the uncanny smile of I’m-about-to-eat-your-brain! This is precisely why I’ve no desire to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes (the subtitle is: Ascent from the Uncanny Valley). ::shudder::

    I’ve always thought Bluebeard would make an awesome movie. Either that or Mr Fox.

    Last night’s nightmare: Whenever humans would discover fairytale creatures and that they actually existed, they were lured away and murdered. At first it seemed like my typical slasher dream, but that was what the creatures wanted humans to think. That might be an unusual premise for an interesting flick. Or just a nightmare I wouldn’t mind having again. Thanks io9.

    Even though I’ve also posted that Naver thing, I STILL jumped out of my skin because this time I had the volume turned up.

    Damn that thing is freaky…
