Still Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 5

July 11th, 2014 by Cobwebs

This concludes the latest Link-Dump-a-Palooza. We’ll return to regular posting (and once-a-week dumps) on Monday.

1930s Wedding – Lovely theme wedding; even the hairstyles are period.

Black Bat Plant – Also called the “Black Bat Flower,” Tacca chantrieri, available from lots of sources besides this one. Gorgeous, Addams-esque black flower.

Movie Characters’ Business Cards – A collection of fictional business cards. I think my favorite might be “Jack Torrance: Ghost Writer.”

Kraken Cowl – A knitting pattern on Ravelry. Looks more like an octopus, but hey; tentacles!

The Teacup Tauntaun – “Rogue taxidermist” Lupa turned a damaged antique ram’s head into a “smaller, fuzzier, cuddlier” Tauntaun intended for the pet trade. I could say that this is a good example of how you can turn random thrift store finds to more whimsical ends, but frankly I just really love the idea of a snuggly Tauntaun.

Three Panel Plays – Good Tickle Brain condenses all of Shakespeare’s plays into three-panel comics.

The Surreal Mind of Igor Morski – Interesting, surreal artwork.

Turkey Vulture – This sweet little ‘toon makes me endlessly happy. (I like this one too.)

Wayward Manor – Neil Gaiman has written a video game about a ghost trying to scare away the living.

Matriarch – This sculpture (and its smaller companion piece “Next of Kin”) by Andrea Hasler appears to be a camping tent made of flesh and innards.

    I wish I had a green thumb for that bat plant!

    Rosemary’s babysitting! AHA!

    I love it when a couple has guests who buy into the theme!

    Stark Radiators. I love it.

    Hummingbirds have forked tongues‽

    I have a friend who used to use the turkey vulture one as her LiveJournal user icon (in animated GIF format). No matter how many times I saw it, I invariably stopped to watch the whole thing.

    Thompson & Morgan usually has seeds for Tacca. Expensive seeds, but a hell of a lot cheaper than the plant. Difficult to germinate, I hear.

    Glad you liked my Tauntaun :) It was a fun project to play with, and I do kind of wish there was a smaller, cuter (and less smelly) version in real life.

    Also, extra cheers for the Bird and Moon comic. I’ve been a fan of the artist for a few years, and it always makes me happy when more people discover her work.
