The Art of Darkness

Another Darn Week of Link Dumps: Day 5

July 15th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Nightmare Before Christmas – This fan art by NENEBUBBLEELOVER is great cosplay inspiration.

Blood Red Lipstick – Replica of a color from 1922.

Kenku Cosplay – This costume of a raven-like D&D character is astonishingly detailed.

From the Library of the Evil Orchid – Great collection of creepy bookplates.

Beetle – Steampunk filigree Volkswagen by metal art shop Vrbanus.

Annie Aube – Needle artist whose work includes a series of scenes from particularly gruesome fairy tales and myths.

Abbot & Hast – Publications and tchotchkes for funerary professionals. They sell cute little model hearses and lapel pins with legends like “Embalming Artistry Professional.”

The 7 Most Ridiculous Ghost Stories from Around the World – An amusing roundup.

Dark Tourism – Article which explores the practice of visiting “sites, attractions and exhibitions which have real or recreated death, suffering or the seemingly macabre as a main theme.”

Darkfin Gloves – Gloves that give you “webbed fingers” which supposedly improve your swimming. I don’t care about that; I just want a pair to wear around and make people nervous.

    Check out pushindaisies.com if you haven’t already. More whimsical than Abbot & Hast, but so fun. I’m sure you can imagine the glee on my face when I pull a business card out of the casket holder in my desk and people look genuinely disturbed.
