Giant Glowing Gummy Skull – For all your giant glowing gummy skull needs (although you have to supply the glow yourself).

Spiderweb Nail Polish – Tutorial for a lovely spider-and-web manicure. The same site has quite a few other spooky nail art too.

1922 Kodak Test Footage – Short clip of color(!) film from 1922. The descriptive blurb makes an interesting point about acting gestures. Some great outfits, too. (Hat tip to Bonni)

Pulp-o-Mizer – Really well-done image manipulator that lets you create your own pulp magazine cover.

Bad Children’s Books – Gallery of classic children’s books with reimagined titles. (Hat tip to pdq)

Bat Orphans – A look at bat rescue efforts in Australia. The cute, I am dying of it.

Jean Marc Laroche – Sculptor who seems to specialize in skeletons and other macabre subjects. Gorgeous work. (Hat tip to Cat)

Horrorgami – Book of spooky origami projects. In the same vein (har!) there’s Monster Origami and Zombigami.

Ratvocates – For the Love of Rats has a set of photos that try to rehabilitate ratties’ public image. Part 2 is here. (You guys, rats are the best pets.)

Giant Glow-in-the-Dark Googly Eyes – Yet another way to add eyeballs to the landscape.

    “Cute, huh? We’ll see about tha…EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! It’s an armful of cuddly-wuddly widdle, omgs, I need one.”
    – my Brain, upon clicking the bat orphan link.

    Also, “I don’t have the plague” is pretty much my new motto. It’s like “better than shitty”.

    Ahhh, your link round ups are alsways great, but I really loved this week’s! I had to share the Bat Orphans. That lady is so amazing and kind. Loved the Bad Children’s Books. Ratvocates was awesome and made me miss my darling Chewbacca. And, Giant Glow-in-the-Dark Googly Eyes are in my future.

    Ratvocates is so cute and reminded me I miss my Booboo and Nicodemus a lot.
    The flying fox babies are so cute too! I want a whole armful of them for myself.
