Perfume as Costume – Interesting ideas for complementing a costume with fragrance.

The Lego Dead – Fairly easy zombie-themed cake. The covering appears to be textured fondant; I’m not entirely sure what the “blood” is–possibly more fondant–since it looks solid instead of runny.

Kids in Awesome Costumes – These are hilarious. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Arkham Horror – Matthew Baldwin does a lot of board game reviews. Here he tackles a Lovecraft-based game.

Dripping Sunglasses – These were custom-made for a fashion show, but I bet you could do something pretty similar using Sugru. (via Scary Jane)

Cyclops Baby Booties – Tutorial for knitting adorable little monster booties.

Stuart McLachlan – Artist who specializes in “paper styling.” A couple of his creations might be useful costume inspiration, such as this “spiral staircase up to a spooky cliff” gown.

Roach Party! – Tumblr blog devoted to all things cockroachy. (Hat tip to Cat)

Making Vinegar at Home – Easy instructions for making homemade vinegar. One of the options they mention is tequila vinegar, so I assume it’d be possible to make vinegar from something like absinthe if you’re so inclined.

Alien-Inspired High Heels – These Geigeresque shoes are certainly…arresting.

    1) Perfume should ALWAYS be a part of the costume. So glad you shared this.
    2) That predator kid is mine. Well, I’d be willing to adopt anyway.
    3) Those sunglasses are the pshyt. I need to order more Sugru…
    And 4) I’m loving that black feathered crown by Stuart. Raven Queen anyone?

    That little Alex is one of the bestest reasons to have kids. Or…not to, depending on how you look at it.

    I love the bird cage top hat. I may have to make one.
