Another Dumb Week of Link Dumps: Day 3

September 30th, 2015 by Cobwebs

What is Dreadpunk – A look at a subculture movement “that aims to push horror and dark fantasy in new (old) directions.”

Star Wars Movie Realization Figures – Bandai has a collection of action figures depicting Darth Vader, stormtroopers, Boba Fett, and other baddies as Japanese feudal warriors.

Cheesecake Ghosts – Easy method for making cute li’l googly-eyed ghosts.

Beasts of Burden – Horror comic series about a group of dogs (and a cat) who learn magic and fight the forces of evil. There’s a look at one of the stories here.

New Horror Text Games Give Voice to Marginalized Women – An interesting overview of “gender horror.”

ZombiePeepshow – Etsy shop full of amazingly over-the-top custom shoes with spikes and skulls and all manner of weird embellishments.

Lovecraft Letters – Bad dating profiles “translated” into the sort of thing that a Lovecraftian horror might write in an attempt to get a date. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Sugar Skull Sachets – Instructions for making cute calavera sachets out of felt.

Necto Cooler – In yet another instance of “craft beer makers with too much time on their hands,” a Philadelphia brewery has released a beer inspired by Hi-C’s Ecto Cooler. Huh.

DryBones Studios – Etsy shop specializing in jewelry and other items made of bone; their Facebook page is neat, too. They have a booth at the Maryland Renaissance Festival this year, and I got a pair of earrings made from weasel jaws. They’re lovely.
