The Art of Darkness

Stuff I Found While Looking Around

June 25th, 2014 by Cobwebs

As usual, here’s a bunch of images I’ve run across which I want to share but might not be able to hang a whole post on. Some of them have no attribution, so if you happen to know the source for any of these please leave a note in the comments. (Click to view larger.)

Burned Paper Nails

Burnt Paper Nails

This is a great-looking, fairly easy, nail treatment. Instructions are here.
Addams Eggs

Addams Family Easter Eggs

From Super Goody Bag. I unfortunately didn’t see these until after Easter, but you can bet I’ll be doing them next year.
Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake

All roads lead to Pinterest on this one, so I can’t tell you who the originator was. It’s funny and shouldn’t require much skill to pull off.
Dust Bunny Bat

Stuffed Bat

This is a “Dust Bunny” art doll. There are lots more here and in the artist’s Flickr stream, but this one is my favorite.
Taxidermy Underwear

Taxidermunmentionables

Oh, look; it’s part of a set.
Dia de los Muertos Cake

Dia de los Muertos Cake

This was done by Bleeding Heart Bakery. The color is gorgeous.
Cobra Boots

Cobra Boots

I…got nothing.
Necronomicon Costume

Necronomicon Costume

This is by Alessandro Piva and was shot at the World Bodypainting Festival 2009 in Seeboden, Austria. There’s a closeup of the face here.
Please Wake Up

Please Wake Up

Originally seen in Weird Tales‘ Facebook feed. I just sort of liked this.
Star Cloak

Star Cloak

This gorgeous thing is by costumer Fairytas, whose site is getting a makeover. In the meantime, you can check out her Facebook page.
Poe Nails

Poe Nails

I can’t find the original artist so can’t give credit. The effect is really cute.
Shirtless Vincent Price

Shirtless Vincent Price

This is here because everybody should occasionally be reminded that Vincent Price was really hot.

    Ooh Addams eggies!

    Makes me think of these: http://mothmouth-throughthelookingglass.blogspot.ca/2011/09/theyre-creepy-and-theyre-kooky.html?m=1
    Which I so covet

    Wow, I must be genius, because my nails, after approximately 15 minutes, get that coveted “artfully chipped and rough-looking” look without any effort on my part!

    That birth(?)day cake is pretty awesome.

    Oh, I did not…think that was fur. ::ahem:: That said I’m all about fur unmentionables, but the fur appears to be on the wrong side.

    I do need a good costume idea for Dragon*Con…
    (That was originally in response to the necronomicon post but could also be for the star cloak. Or the fur undies.)
