The Art of Darkness

Arsenic and Old Link Dumps

June 16th, 2017 by Cobwebs

Bioshock Doll – Really nice “Little Sister,” plus accessories, all handmade.

How a Raven Chose a Man as Her Mate – The title of this video clip is slightly misleading, but it’s a cute look at the “special bond” between the Tower of London’s Ravenmaster and one of his charges.

Under the Knife – YouTube series that “takes a humorous look back into our medical past.” This is a really neat channel. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Flower Dinosaurs – This deep learning cross between a book of dinosaurs and a book of flowers is gorgeous.

Unknown Peoples – Interesting Twitter feed which tweets out short descriptions of mythical races and cultures, such as, “The Culture of the Bog. Their society includes eleven distinct genders. They have been exiled from their homeland.” and “The Northern Tribe. They paint stripes across their horns with teal clay. Their merchants are rumoured to trade ideas for gold.” Might be useful for RPG worldbuilding.

Bokaclava – Pattern for a balaclava that looks like the classic Doctor Who monster Bok if you know who that is, and like a demon sticking its tongue out if you don’t. (Hat tip to Jan)

NerdLacquer – Fandom-themed lip balm and nail polish with names like “Carrie,” “Blavatsky,” and “General Effing Leia.”

Conjuring Arts Research Center – Atlas Obscura explores a library devoted to magic (the Houdini kind, not the Harry Potter kind).

At Home Imagineering – Custom home theater styled after 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and full of steampunky goodness.

Decomposing Daiquiri – A friend posted this, explaining that the ice cubes are made from frozen Zombie. “The drink gradually transforms from a Daiquiri into a Zombie as the ice cube ‘decomposes.'” Fun idea for a party. (Link just goes to a photo.)
