The Art of Darkness

Night of the Walking Link Dump

July 4th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Preserved Tapeworm Necklace – The shop is called MyParasites, but aside from this single item they appear to carry nothing but generic goth-ish accessories. This is certainly shudder-worthy, though.

Penny Dreadful Animated Guides – Attractive promotional videos for the Showtime series.

Gentleman Octopus – Squee-worthy lampwork pendant featuring a very dapper cephalopod.

Academy of Villains – This is a pretty spectacular dance routine. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Capuchin Crypt – Some nice photos of the ossuary in Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini. How is “Crypt of the Pelvis” not a Sisters of Mercy album title? (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

American Gods Coming to Starz – Neil Gaiman’s novel is being adapted as a series.

Cream and Sugar – Polymer clay sculpture of cute little tea-stealing fairies.

Paper Mache Dragon Trophy – Dan “The Monster-man” was commissioned to create a Maleficent-style dragon head trophy. It is gorgeous. Update: Apparently there was some sort of site disaster and the blog went away. The main page is still up; you can see photos of the Maleficent sculpt here.

Spooksville Bats Dress – Cute acid-green dress with a bat motif. (Hat tip to Cat)

Really Creepy Bundle – Similar to the Humble Bundle, but, y’know…creepier.

    That dance routine was pretty damn spectacular.

    Was definitely expecting an actual tape worm as the necklace, not just in a pendant.

    I will be watching these later.

    d’awww

    I am super impressed by the amount of time, practice, and coordination that goes into synchronized dancing. My roommate in college was a fan of Para Para, which is basically Japanese line dancing and looks like you’re having a stroke if you’re the only one doing it…but if multiple people are all doing it—and at the same time!—it looks like something wonderful. Or at least coordinated.

    “Crypt of the Pelvis” sounds more like the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to me.

    I AM SO EXCITED!!!

    I love the acorn bowls.

    I like the dress but amn’t a fan of the color.

    I kickstarted a scifi thing and it got over-kickstarted so it includes a horror thing and now I get horror and scifi stories auto-delivered to my Kindle and it’s amazing. /tangent
