The Art of Darkness

Stuff I Found While Looking Around

September 12th, 2012 by Cobwebs

You know what annoys me? Well, lots of things, really; I’m easily annoyed. But for the purposes of this post the particular thing that annoys me is uncredited photos being posted to Pinterest, Facebook or similar sites. With no source, there’s no way to find out more about them, and I’d really like to know who made some of this stuff. Phooey.

So here’s some random images I’ve run across recently; click to view larger. If you happen to know the source for any of these, let us know in the comments!

Coffin Cake

The covering appears to be fondant. I also like the decorations on the little cupcakes.
Maternity Shirt

Maternity Blouse
I love this design.
The Bride Cheesecake Pose

“The Bride” Cheesecake Pose
This is apparently ‘shopped–the head is pretty clearly this iconic shot, just reversed–but it looks fantastic.
Ouija Board Shoes

Ouija Board Pumps
I’m assuming these were decoupaged. There’s a good tutorial here if you want to try something similar. The trim appears to be sew-on rhinestone chain, which can be found at craft and fabric stores.
Skeleton Manicure

Skeleton Manicure
This is a great-looking effect, if you’ve got the patience to pull it off.
Skull Cake

Skull Cake
This is a wonderfully simple decorating idea, but it’s really quite elegant. The skull appears to be this one, which is also available in rainbow colors.
Death

Death
Artsy photograph. I quite like the imagery.

    Have you heard of a newer feature that Google has? You basically upload or put the url for an image in the search box and it will search for instances where you can find that image. That might help you trace down where it originated from. Here’s the link to Google’s page explaining how to do it. It’s pretty neat! http://support.google.com/images/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1325808

    That last one looks like a black and white screen cap from the introduction to Dead Like Me

    I use TinEye to try and source images, but wasn’t aware of the Google analog. Thanks!
