The Art of Darkness

Killer Link Dumps From Outer Space

April 4th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Stone – Creepy fan-made short film featuring the weeping angels from Doctor Who.

Little Cherry Cake Company – Bakery which creates amazingly detailed, whimsical cakes. There are several spook-themed ones in their gallery.

DIY Halloween Village – This is a forehead-smackingly great idea: Make a miniature Halloween village by painting “Christmas village” buildings black. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Verillas – Expensive but gorgeous steampunk gear.

25 of the Cutest Bat Species – Proposed subtitle: “Bats you will feel compelled to snorgle on their wee bellies.” (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Hotel Casanus – For reasons it’s best not to consider, there’s a lodge in Belgium shaped like a giant rectum. The comments at the link are entertaining.

rachelliles352 – Artist who makes amazing hand-painted sneakers featuring themes from the Haunted Mansion, Beetlejuice, NMBC, and many others.

Funny Wedding RSVPs – I’m kicking myself for not doing something like this at my own wedding.

Nevermore Corset – Great Poe-themed design.

Calamityware – Tranquil-looking blue willow china plate patterns, each featuring some extraordinary catastrophe like flying monkeys or crashing airplanes. Two of the designs have been turned into real plates via successful Kickstarter campaigns.

    The best thing about Stone (which I watched this morning, in full daylight) is that, at the end, I refused to blink, willing that to be enough. Also, I’ll need to destroy my iPhone.

    Oh, man, I want to write some of these things into wedding RSVPs! (I’m also going to start using “Yemen. A secret trip to Yemen.” as my excuse for everything.) Also, I like the “list a song that will get you dancing” line. More invitations need that.

    I will require a set of these plates.

    A friend of mine did Madlibs RSVPs for her wedding, which was pretty cool. Wish I had chosen better company to attend with. *sigh*

    I believe the fabric for that corset is from Michael Miller’s Nevermore collection: https://www.fabric.com/buy/228313/michael-miller-nevermore-collection-nevermore-collage-urban-grit-white
    So it would be easy enough to make one for yourself, as long as tou find making corsets easy.
