The Art of Darkness

Le Link Dump d’Arthur

June 28th, 2013 by Cobwebs

Bottom Feeders – Lovely, delicate ceramics encrusted with tentacles and other seagoing critters. The artist sells a few pieces on Etsy.

The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits – Useful reference book. The same author has written a number of similar tomes, including The Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology, The Encyclopedia of Witches, Witchcraft, and Wicca, and The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves.

The Emotionary – “Words that don’t exist for feelings that do.”

My Backyard Monsters – Weird little crocheted things, many with free patterns. Who doesn’t need a miniature Kodama or a taxidermy deer butt?

Russian Tampon Commercial – Now that’s an effective ad campaign.

Light-up Anglerfish Embroidery – Simple project which features a light-up “lure.” The same technique could be used to, say, give an embroidered bat glowing eyes.

Haunted Mansion Wallpaper – DoomBuggies claims that this print is from the same graphic used by Disney for the “official” attraction wallpaper. They also have the print in fabric.

Halloween Nail Art – Some of these are just ridiculously detailed.

Goth Swim Suits – A roundup.

Kathie Olivas – Artist who specializes in cutely creepy children in surreal surroundings. I quite like this little girl and her pet.

    I made a dress out of that Haunted Mansion fabric. I found the fabric a bit scratchy, thinner than I expected, and it faded a bit when I washed it. But none of that stops me from wearing it.

    Here’s the dress, if anyone is interested: http://cuzisaidsew.blogspot.com/2013/06/grim-grinning-ghosts.html

    I want the Haunted Mansion fabric for a corset for me and a waistcoat for Mr. ShellHawk!

    “Don’t forget your 1000 SPF sunscreen to maintain your unhealthy complexion!” Haha. Good stuff.

    Funniest. Ad. Ever.

    And I LOVE the bottom feeder tea set!

    I am in love with that fabric. And the tea set! But how is the Silence even happening on that nail?!
