The Art of Darkness

Not Another Week of Link Dumps

September 29th, 2014 by Cobwebs

As a pig is to truffles, so am I to random crap on the internet. This week will be a buffet of the finest hand-picked links.

Steampumkin – Cherie Priest’s Jack-o’-lantern. There’s a tutorial for steaming up plastic pumpkins here.

Stellaluna Costume – This is a rental costume used for promoting the children’s book. It’d be a heck of a cosplay outfit. Or just wear it to lounge around the house.

Anatomical Coat – Submitted by xJane with the comment, “Could be DIY’d…if you have a steady hand, artistic talent, patience, 62 hours of free time, and a thrifted light trench.” I could probably manage the “light trench” part.

A Map of the Introvert’s Heart – Yup.

Punk-kin – Instructions for making a leather-studded S&M pumpkin.

12 Stunningly Spooky Halloween Heels – Some of these would be reasonably DIY-able with decoupage. (Hat tip to Cat)

Dragon Backpack – By the ever-awesome Bob Basset workshop.

Frankenstein Exhibition – Upcoming exhibition at the British Library which sounds pretty neat, as does the BBC’s associated “Gothic Season” programming. I don’t know if the exhibit will tour or not, but hopefully some of the programming will be available to a non-UK audience.

Horror Star Chart – Interesting “star chart” which maps horror movies as constellations.

Human Remains Displayed in Strange Places – I’d sort of like to know who thought it’d be a good idea to store mummies in a public restroom. (Hat tip to pdq)

    Wait, truffles actually come to pigs?? I thought it was the other way around!

    Well, I might just have to buy one of those crappy pumpkin things and turn it into a steampunk purse!

    Between you and The Boyfriend, I think I might have reached my quota of spooky shoes. For the hour.

    The exhibition at the British Library isn’t just Frankenstein, it’s called The Gothic Imagination, and it’s absolutely superb – I went along to the press day. Covers everything from Walpole through to the present.

    Oh aye, and I doubt the exhibition will tour, as British Library ones don’t usually – a lot of it is things like rare first editions and manuscripts. As far as I know, they never leave the library.
