A Clockwork Link Dump

Costurero Real – Etsy shop specializing in gorgeous costume pieces, including patterned like butterflies and moths. This moth cape is gorgeous.

Trust in Me – Siouxsie and the Banshees’ cover of Kaa’s song from Disney’s The Jungle Book.

The Crusades and Lovecraft’s Monsters – Series of illustrations by Robert Altbauer which mimic the style of Medieval manuscripts but add Cthulhoid monsters.

Lego Exorcist – Lego builder Vitroleum is re-creating scenes from famous horror movies. So far he’s got The Exorcist and Scream. (I think Father Merrin is a 12th Doctor minifig, which makes it especially amusing.)

Chicken Conquistador – “My mom loves chickens and Dia De Los Muertos and I love my mom, so I made this painting for her.”

If the Apocalypse Comes, Play D&D – Geek & Sundry made D&D character sheets for various Buffy characters.

Nursery Needlepoint – Since it comes from a webcomic site I think this was just supposed to be a joke; however, I see no reason why it couldn’t be used as a real embroidery pattern. I like the juxtaposition of the imagery and the text.

10 Strange Attempts To Start Internet Mysteries – The headline makes this sound like these “mysteries” are deliberate attempts to spawn a hoax, but they mainly just seem to be weird internet stuff whose meaning nobody can really figure out.

Mutated Lab Rat – Cute li’l three-eyed plush toy. (Bonus link: There’s also a plush naked mole rat, which makes me inexplicably happy.)

Hard Candy Jewels – Tutorial for making “gems” out of candy. These would be great for decorating a pirate-themed cake.

    I actually completed that very same cross stitch for my son. I’m considering upicking the name, date of birth etc and re-doing it.
