The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump of Dorian Grey

September 7th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Pareidoloop – Online coding experiment that generates random polygons until facial recognition software identifies the result as a face. The results are oddly creepy.

Monster Patch – Cute fix for ripped jeans. (I don’t think I’d use felt; it isn’t terribly sturdy.)

Hang Boo on a Wall – Instructable for making an adorable little light-up ghost.

Anatomy Boutique – Hand-screened Dia de los Muertos wallpaper. Lovely stuff.

Kia Goth Commerical – Made me giggle. (Also a similar, “Goths are made perky!” thing from Irn Bru.)

102 Wicked Things to Do – Blog full of awesome tutorials for spooky projects. I particularly like the Tudor Toss and Evil Dead spellbook.

Shadows in the Woods – Interesting-sounding game meant to be played by candlelight.

Arkham Bazaar – For all your Lovecraftian needs.

Harry Potter Quilt – This is some great applique.

Baturday – Very peculiar Tumblr devoted to bats. And also Batman. But whatever. They’ve got an animated gif of that bat being groomed with a toothbrush and that’s good enough for me. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

    Those…look like faces to me!

    I’m kind of in love with the coffin-shaped surfboards (complete with fin!).

    And that Evil Dead cookbook is awesome. I had a friend over and I taught her to make bread. It would’ve been so much better if I could’ve been all, “Oh, um. Hand me that book over there, please,” with flour dripping from my fingers. “Which one…?” “The big one, that’s it. Dark cover. Yes.” So awesome.

    Also, Shadows in the Woods (which is a much better name than “Waldschattenspiel” (“forest-shadow-game”)) is more proof—as if we needed it—of Germany’s perhaps-unhealthy-but-certainly-awesome obsession with fire.

    In addition to an oval D because duh and an oval BRC because of the status, I totally now want an oval R’LH because of confusion. Maddening confusion, MUAHAHAHAHAHA! ::ahem::

    That is a very contented-looking bat.

    OK I have two huge essays and a eport to write, so I’m avoiding actually reading the craft ideas page for now – but yay! Craft ideas in time for Halloween!

    Also I love that ad. I especially love that one of the guys in the back looks like my cousin who died a few years ago. He even laughs like him. The ad makes me cry for that, but it’s strangely nice to watch Not-Steven bouncing and laughing.
