    Yaaassss! Crochet patterns! Guess who’s going to be making skull bunting now?

    I also really like that demon hunter coat, and I love their eagle coat as well (very Assassin’s Creed-y) but man that site doesn’t explain things very well. Like, ok I can choose the thread colour for the eagle coat, but i can see in the pics that each section has a different thread colour, so can I not just ask for that? There were a few things like that. Although i imagine if you’re going to blow $400US on a custom coat you can probably email them and work with them on it.

    I wish bats could be pets, but my cats would probably try to eat them.

    Loved the bad things to say at funerals. The ex-husband once gave me a similarly themed book written by funeral directors.

    The best part of that bat video was that they were keeping them on a drying rack.

    OMGs, my husband would so wear some of that Totally Not CosPlaying This Is Normal What Are You Talking About wear.

    Those Edgar/Allan books look super cute. They are going on my gift list for my goddaughter.

    Some of those “worst things” to say at a funeral were pretty damn good.
