This concludes the latest Link-Dump-a-Go-Go. Regular posting (and once-a-week link dumps) will return on Monday.

27 Places Straight Out of Nightmares – a.k.a. “Goth Vacation Suggestions.”

Human Skull Lyre – This is pretty metal.

Thrift Store Finds: Halloween Makeover – Some great suggestions for giving thrifted metal candlesticks, trays, and other items a spooky makeover. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

50 Scooby Doo Background Paintings – I want a bunch of these blown up and framed.

The Great Big Book of Horrible Things – A “definitive chronicle” of history’s 100 worst atrocities.

Werewolf – This sounds like a fun party game.

Fairies – Amazingly detailed “fairies” made of taxidermy insect parts. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Louis Armstrong Sings Death Metal – An amusing mashup.

Baby Bat Playing with Toys – This li’l rescue bat playing with a mobile will melt your heart.

Fencing Language in The Princess Bride – Westley and Inigo weren’t just making stuff up.

    I would love to have those Scooby Doo backgrounds hanging in my house.

    The baby bat gave me the feels.

    Those scooby paintings are pretty awesome. I wish I had even a tiny amount of artistic skill to recreate them.

    The bat is crazy adorable. It’s being immediately saved to my squee folder for bad days.

    And that werewolf game looks rad! Fingers crossed Amazon ships to Oz.

    I love the thrift store makeovers, but to apply the glitter easily, mix it into the liquid medium, then paint it on. After it dries, you can use a sealer. Another upside is that you can mix inexpensive glitter in with the good stuff, and save a little money that way too!

    Yeah, okay. Those Scooby Doo backgrounds are pretty cool. Cooler than I expected.

    I really do want to take up sword fighting…
