The Art of Darkness

Another Doggone Week of Link Dumps

November 10th, 2014 by Cobwebs

Of all of the superpowers I could have chosen, “Be a magnet for random crap on the internet” wasn’t really on the list. But here I am with an overflowing links folder. So you guys get another full week of link dumps.

Skull and Crossbones Tea Infuser – This is adorable.

The Penguin Book of Witches – Historical accounts of accused witches. The author discusses the book here.

The Trials and Tribulations of Being a Skeleton – Cute animated short exploring the problems with being a skeleton. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Crystal Web Necklace – Tutorial for making a collar-style spiderweb necklace.

Crypt of the Necrodancer – 8-bit rhythm game which amounts to “dance dance roguelike.”

Death Becomes Her – The NY Met’s Costume Institute has a new exhibit featuring “A Century of Mourning Attire.” The article includes a slideshow of some of the clothing.

Stag Beetle Bread – These surprisingly realistic beetle-shaped loaves wouldn’t be terribly hard to replicate.

Sourpuss – Lots of goth-friendly throw pillows, cookie jars, shower curtains, and other housewares.

Deathsplanation – An archaeologist working on her PhD has a site devoted to “death (and science).” If nothing else, check out her fantastic Plague Poster. (via WitchArachne)

Sugar Skull Bakers – A group of bakers and cake decorators did an amazing collection of Day of the Dead-themed edibles.

    Let me be the first to swear off sending you random crap. Feel free to de-gauss.

    And yet, like a cute nickname, we do not choose our superpowers.

    That is an incredible necklace!

    That necklace is so gorgeous! I’m not at all talented at beading, but I do have a friend who is. I may have to hit her up for a commission.
