Ash Dancer – Amazingly detailed graphite sculpture of a human skeleton.

Cryptomancer – RPG created “by hackers for hackers.” It’s your standard fantasy-world setting, but you win by creating and undermining cryptographically secured networks of magical gems.

Mama In Her Kerchief and I In My Madness – A “truly awful Christmas volume” of fictional pre-Santa lore. (Hat tip to pdq)

Whimsy Calling – Etsy shop specializing in absurdly cute clay animals, including dragons, ponycorns, and what may possibly be the cutest bat (with a full moon on his tummy) that I have ever seen.

Crochet Sugar Skulls – Free pattern with tutorial and photos.

Art of Mr. Werewolf – Artist Jakub Rozalski creates wonderful paintings depicting rural Eastern European folk fighting against mecha warriors, werewolves, and demons. His Krampus vs. Santa is awesome.

Ghostfish: Catfished by a Ghost – Five-minute dark comedy.

Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling – Anthology of works which take tired storytelling tropes (Love at First Sight, Damsels in Distress, Yellow Peril, The Black Man Dies First, etc.) and turns them into something fresh.

Monsters – Artist Len Peralta does many geeky works, including some great monsters. He also does custom holiday cards and “pets drawn geeky.”

15 Creepy Vintage Toys – How most of these haven’t already shown up in low-budget horror movies, I have no idea. (Hat tip to pdq)
