The Art of Darkness

House of 1000 Link Dumps

March 21st, 2014 by Cobwebs

Fairy Hunter – This awesome artwork from Davesrightmind depicts one of the natural predators of fairies.

Head in a Jar – Easy, striking kid’s costume, which appears to be inspired by this how-to guide. xJane, who sent the link, plans to make a Marie Antoinette version for herself.

Horror Fiction – A good roundup of vintage-y, free, fiction.

Creepy Skull Slouch Hat – Crochet pattern for a hat full of li’l skulls.

Steampunk “Thing” – Lovely sculpture which reimagines the Addams Family “Thing” as a clockwork hand.

8 Hilariously Nonthreatening Monsters from Japanese Folklore – A list of creatures who are somewhat less horrifying than ghostly long-haired little girls.

Armor Corsets – Although these look like they’d be rather ouchy to sit down in, they’re undeniably lovely.

Freya Jobbins – Artist who makes sculptures out of doll parts. A little NSFW; really damn creepy.

Colorized History – There’s a whole subReddit devoted to colorizing old photos. LEAP provides a small sample.

Skull Cake – Easy way to make understated skull-and-crossbones designs in icing. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

    When I saw the head in the jar link , I thought it was to this one:http://www.instructables.com/id/head-in-a-jar-prank/

    Which also might be good for a Silence of the Lambs themed party

    That fairy hunter is the shiz.
    Marie Antoinette would be awesome for that head in a jar costume.
    THANK YOU for that fiction roundup. Always looking for stuff like this.

    Ha! I love that Thing. Looks pretty easy to pull off, too.

    Also—awesome hat.

    I wonder if the faceless Mujina also advises travelers to get plenty of fluids but merely does so facelessly.

    The Mokumokuren just looks forlorn.

    Yup. I totally want those corsets. (Also love this forged metal corset.)

    It’s a shell-and-crossbones cake! (Love the surprise, too!)

    Rats, drat and damn. The Freya Jobbins linky does nawt werk. S’ok, I googled her – holy frijoles, that’s seriously whacked. I got a thing for creepy dolls stuff, thanks for the tip.

    The corsets are leather, yes? That doesn’t look like it would be too uncomfortable…
