The Little Link Dump That Could

November 25th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Human Blood Energy Potion – Caffeinated fruit punch in a “blood bag.”

Imaginary Image Blog – Interestingly surreal site consisting of descriptions of images that would be totally awesome if they existed. Things like, “A wide-angle photo of the milk section at a supermarket only one of the jugs is overfilled with blood and leaking out into a pool all over the floor” and “A photo taken inside an empty Madison Square Garden as a pack of wolves walk across the court”.

Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum – Gorgeous steampunk terrarium.

Seance – Webcomic from AmazingSuperPowers. (Includes mouseover text.)

Harry Potter Weddings – Lovely photos of Harry Potter-themed weddings.

Astronaut Training Party – This isn’t even faintly goth but it’s such a splendidly detailed idea for a children’s party that I wanted to highlight it. It could be spooked up by tweaking the theme to involve hostile aliens, or make it a monster hunter-training party instead.

Spider Screen – I had never considered cross-stitching a window/door screen, but I love this spiderweb idea.

Wishing it Was Friday – Amusing “iconic” poster.

Cinderella’s Coach – Great “coach” made of artificial pumpkins and squash. This would be pretty painted with metallic or iridescent paint, too.

Skeleton Cupcakes – Tutorial (starts a couple of paragraphs down in the post) for making ridiculously cute skeleton cupcake toppers out of chocolate-covered pretzels.

    …I can never decide what to comment on.

    Human Blood Energy Potion. This has been on my “Things to Buy” list for certain friends of mine as an emergency for birthdays when I can’t come up with anything better.

    Imaginary Image Blog. This guy needs to team up with that blog (Reddit?) that issues photoshop challenges.

    Professor Alexander’s Botanical Vasculum. When I have a bajillion dollars, high on my list of frivolous things to do is steampunk my life. My life: now including terrariums.

    Seance. I feel like more seances ought to go this way than actually do.

    Harry Potter Weddings. ::tries not to think of the crazy hissy fit her religious parents would throw if she tried this:: Also: Having never been to one of these, I clearly need better friends.

    Astronaut Training Party. One of my favorite memories from Seattle (a time of my life which I usually prefer to pretend never happened) is going to Space Camp one summer. This party appears to be a condensation of that week into an afternoon. Also I was slightly older. If I still lived in Seattle, I would be the Museum of Flight’s Most Annoying Space Docent and volunteer for every single one of their camps. I’m still moderately miffed that Starfleet Academy didn’t exist in time for me to be able to attend it—I had real-life experience, Admissions!

    Spider Screen. My sister who catches black widows (and you thought this was just me, ha!) has started sewing her screens back together. I’m going to try to convince her to make them a little more artistic.

    Wishing it Was Friday. I…I got nothing.

    Cinderella’s Coach. I love the name of this blog.

    Skeleton Cupcakes. Cuuuuuuute!

    Problem solved. Although perhaps the rest of your readership is happy I usually restrain myself to just one.

    I need to get knocked up and have a boy so I can do the astronaut party
