The Art of Darkness

The Amityville Link Dump

April 18th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Head in a Jar Prank – Instructions for creating a marvelously realistic-looking “head in a jar” for stashing in the fridge. (Hat tip to Jean-Robert)

Life-Size Filet Skeleton – Crochet pattern for a life-size skeleton afghan. The same design could be made smaller, and also looks suitable for cross-stitch.

Creepy Website Masterpost – A collection of “dark corners” of the internet. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Metal Cats – “Hardcore Metal” musicians posing with their cats. (via Beth)

Winter’s Knight – Sony is making a gritty origin story for Santa Claus. I have nothing to add to this.

Fetish Wear in the 1920s – The look was surprisingly modern. (Slightly NSFW, but not nearly as much as you’d expect.)

Frozen Garden – Small collection of upscale jewelry featuring bugs (and occasionally flowers, but bugs are more interesting). I especially like the caterpillar brooch.

Sassy Pig Druscilla – I’m deeply curious about the thought process that led to a collectible figurine of a goth pig. There are also Bride of Frankenstein and Witch versions available for equally puzzling reasons. (via Cat)

The Book of Life – A first look at Guillermo del Toro’s Romeo and Juliet story set during the Day of the Dead.

Two-Headed Skeleton Sock Monkey – In argyle, no less. (Hat tip to pdq)

    Totally in love with that first fetish outfit, which I would wear as normal attire, because I am bizarre.

    Re: Sassy Pig – I have a friend who collects pigs. China pigs, painted pigs, wooden pigs – you name it, she would add it to her collection. I choose not to aid and abet her obsession.
    I will show you a picture of the two-headed Flat Stanley I sent out on a round robin about six months ago. She still has eight or nine people left to visit (fifteen people in the group)so it won’t be in the near future.

    Welp. There goes my productivity for the rest of the week.

    I really need to do that head in a jar thing this fall when I have time. I want it in my living room.

    Love that crocheted skeleton. I feel like, in white, it would make a fun-but-subtle curtain.
