The Art of Darkness

The Wicker Link Dump

June 30th, 2017 by Cobwebs

Rise – Amusing ‘toon. (via Pixel Pixie)

Elin Thomas – Fiber artist whose works include a collection of mould and lichen. The crocheted “petri dishes” are particularly interesting.

Todd and Annette – Sweet little story based on the writing prompt, “An old and homely grandmother accidentally summons a demon. She mistakes him for her gothic-phase teenage grandson and takes care of him. The demon decides to stay at his new home.”

Famous American Ghosts – An amusing roundup.

Inflatable Coffin Buffet – Coffin-shaped cooler for parties; it’d also be fun to float in a pool. (The vendor has a European site as well.)

A Guide Through the Haunting World of “Folk Horror” – Bandcamp has a roundup of dark, pagany, folk-ish music.

Gothic Toggs – Some attractive clothing. This jacket is certainly imposing.

The Apprehension Engine – An instrument created for horror movie soundtracks, to play “the music of nightmares.”

Falconry – A short primer on taking up the sport.

Hong Kong’s Fortune Teller Shops – Interesting photo series of the oddly office-like shops run by fortune tellers in Hong Kong. These are all clearly Executive Fortune Tellers. (Hat tip to pdq)

    I have an inflatable coffin cooler. It’s basically the size of a kiddie pool so one summer I put it out back and sat in it under an umbrella.
