    I offered this skull ring in bronze to my boyfriend earlier this year – it really is a beautiful piece of work and the craftsman, the Lost Apostle, is very friendly and helful.

    I want to snorgle that facehugger’s tummy.
    I’m totally about to ebay it up to get some ravens to make that wreath (I’m sick of the dusty rose one I made a few years back, and it’s getting a bit tatty too).
    And I am astounded by the level of anatomical detail in that skull ring. I would buy it for my brother but he has so many rings already it’d just go into a collection of stuff he’d rarely wear. Still tempting though…

    I am in love with that wreath! I kind of want to see one with the ravens all facing out (also without the glitter).

    That mirror spider is kind of awesome, but the Interwebs only give me those photos for it. But I also found this, so: win.

    Love those short stories. There used to be a twitter account, Very Short Stories, that did something like these. Very powerful.

    Those Game of Thrones costumes are incredible. But they don’t come across on the screen—I wonder what the costume designers/makers think of that. They’re certainly accurate to the book/fake historical time (that they would be incredibly embroidered with the wearer’s House), but, again…you don’t see that level of detail. Maybe I just need a higher-res screen.
