The Art of Darkness

Still Another Week of Link Dumps: Day 4

May 28th, 2015 by Cobwebs

Laser Cut Velvet Leggings – This intricate lace pattern is quite striking and surprisingly inexpensive.

5 Inches from Limbo – Photographer Annie Collinge finds weird vintage dolls at thrift stores, then dresses up people in similar clothing and takes their picture. It’s really rather creepy.

Ben & Jerry’s Horror Ice Cream – A set of (sadly, not available in real life) ice cream “concept” flavors based on horror movies.

Centaurs, Man – Jemma Salume meditates on mythical human/animal hybrids. Favorite line: “Do we need to bust out the Punnett Squares?”

Catlin T. McCormack – Artist who creates intricate crocheted skeletons and other “bony” things.

Goth Screenshots – Tumblr devoted to computer system messages and alerts with a morose, nihilistic bent. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Vintage Button Emporium – All kinds of lovely vintage and antique buttons.

Young, Black and Victorian – Neat photo roundup of Victorian women of color.

Frankenstein Flowerpots – Technically, they’re Frankenstein’s monster flowerpots. Whatever; you can plant flowers in his noggin. The same artist also makes brain bowls.

Biophilia – Lovely mosaics made from insects.

    First thought after seeing the centaur post.

    Those doll photos are really odd. I was quite up for the icecream till I got to Human Centipeach. No. Just no.

    A bit of randomness… in the Vintage Button Emporium site, the first picture (4 across from left and 1 down), I just bought that button as a pendant at the WWII Museum shop in New Orleans.

    A Frankenstein Creature flower pot would be nice but $80! Oy.

    I could spend sooo much money at the button site AND the leggings site!
