Halloween Skull Socks – The motifs in this knitting pattern could be re-purposed for a lot of different projects.

Curious Cryptid Curios – “Miss Mantis” gives twee porcelain figurines insectoid makeovers, resulting in oddly winsome, elegantly-dressed bugs.

Krampus Time is Here Again – This amigurumi Krampus, complete with screaming kidnapped children, is adorably menacing.

Supernatural Horror in Literature – Interesting discussion thread about Lovecraft’s essay (linked at the top). (Hat tip to Bruno)

The Terror of Yurei – A look at Japanese haunted-house attractions, and how they differ from their Western counterparts. The article is actually an excerpt from a book, Scream, which sounds interesting.

Monsters’ Holiday – I had no idea that Bobby “Boris” Pickett followed up “Monster Mash” with a Christmas-themed tune. After listening to it, I can see why I had no idea. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Surviving the World – An amusing perspective on “the war on Christmas.”

3D Printed Cat Armor – For the feline gladiatorial games you’ve always dreamt of.

Wonderland – This is kind of an interesting game idea. It’s an audio murder mystery set in 1914 Toronto. There’s a puzzle at the end of each chapter, and you have to solve it to unlock the next one. If you get stuck, you can go for a walk (assuming you’re playing it on a device which can recognize when you’re walking) and every 100 steps unlocks one letter.

Countessa Ephemera’s Evergreen Gown – Amazing Christmas decoration made of evergreen branches. There are additional posts documenting the “gown’s” construction on the sidebar, along with similar decorations from previous years.

    Not to be confused with Monster’s Holiday, by Buck Owens.
