Horror Happy Meals These parody happy meal boxes (complete with toys!) by artist Newt Clements are wonderful.

Mister Finch – Creator of lovely soft sculptures and miniatures. I adore his serene Tea-Making Spider.

Hand-Engraved Harry Potter Covers – Created for an edition of the book targeted at adults, these are all kinds of gorgeous.

Dia de los Muertos Wedding – Some lovely theme ideas from Hostess with the Mostess. (A couple other recent party themes from the same site: Steampunk and Thriller.

What’s That Bug? – Handy site which allows users to submit bug photos for identification. Lots of interesting photos and discussion.

Werewolf Bar Mitzvah – “Werewolf bar mitzvah, spooky scary, Boys becoming men, Men becoming wolves.”

The Seven Lady Godivas – Dr. Seuss once did an “adult” book. His nudes are still adorably Seussian.

Melting Table – Amazing carved wooden side table which resembles a dripping candle.

I am Already Disturbed – Amusing sign seen on Etsy. The original has sold, but this would be super-easy to DIY with a stencil.

Dare to Wear – Goth fashion for curvier girls.

    I definitely need that spider-at-tea.

    Wow, the Harry Potter engravings are incredible!

    I really like the look of black lace over cream. Apparently it works both for Dia de las Muertos and for Steampunk!

    Oh man, the Seven Lady Godivas was one of my favorite books growing up (once I discovered it, hidden on a bookshelf of Books I Was Not Allowed To Read, like the three-inch book of dirty limericks…). I still think of it whenever I hear a horse-metaphor.

    Horror Happy Meals… and then there’s Little House on the Prairie. Bahaha.
    Mister Finch’s talent is blowing. My. Mind.
    I love how they mixed the neon colors with the black for that wedding.
