The Art of Darkness

A Link Dump by Any Other Name

October 28th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Rachael Rossman – Artist who does commission watercolor portraits, including some nice Day of the Dead-themed stuff.

Brain Cakes – These jarred cakes with squiggly-icing “brains” are wonderfully revolting. (I’d be tempted to put labels on them like, “Hans Delbruck” and “Abby Normal.”)

Abandoned Crypts – Urban exploration of abandoned cemetery crypts in Belgium.

Monsters in the Movies – Great history of movie monsters written by John Landis.

Cakeland – Artist Scott Hove creates “cakes” and other desserts featuring fangs and disembodied limbs. Yum!

Ossuary Dice – Set of neat 3-D printed dice shaped like piles of skulls. I have no idea how accurate they are as dice, but they look great.

Growing-up for Goths – Interesting article on why goths tend not to leave the culture as we get older. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Polly Tights – I like these cute “weeping” tights, but think they’d be pretty easy to re-create with a bit of fabric paint for quite a bit less than £38/$60.

Getting in the Halloween Spirit – I think this is a brilliant idea.

Sparkly Tattoo Tutorial – Easy instructions for making a temporary tattoo from any image you like.

    I totally read that article about goths in the Guardian. Pretty interesting. And the second generations gothlings? That is too cool.

    My second generation gothling is furry, meows a lot, and runs away from the camera.

    The Zombie Caroling idea is great … but … Halloween songs. Monster Mash? Mr. Moon? I’m at a loss after that. I doubt seriously that anyone would hold off calling the cops for 3 or 4 Zombie Rendered songs, but shouldn’t you have more than one song in the repertoire?

    My Moon, My Man; Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives; Season of the Witch. But not just zombie songs. I wish I had cooler friends…

    The “brilliant idea” made me gasp aloud because of its awesome!

    I was never involved in the goth subculture when I was younger (nor…I suppose, am I now), but I’ve always found that people who are are some of the most interesting people and I like hanging out with them. I don’t know what the sociologists would say that has to say about me…but in the mean time, I’m happy to chill with the cool kids until they discover me. :)
