The Art of Darkness

The Mystery of the Brass-Bound Link Dump

December 22nd, 2017 by Cobwebs

Bone Forest Gifts – Etsy shop specializing in intricate, creepy, gorgeous 3-D printed jewelry. The skull spiders are particularly unsettling. (via Spooky Moon)

A Plea to Resurrect the Christmas Tradition of Telling Ghost Stories – A lot of Christmas carols make some mention of telling ghost stories. This is why.

Dr. Terrible’s House of Horrible – Series which parodies British horror films of the 60s and 70s; which, in the case of Hammer Films, would be sort of difficult. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Dear Satan – Amusing animated short, narrated by Patrick Stewart.

A Dickensian Alphabet – A worthy ‘toon from Tom Gauld.

Victorian Ghost Signatures – Video discussing the short-lived Victorian fad for creating Rorschach-y images from signatures. Atlas Obscura also has an article about it here (via xJane)

ClockworkCreature – Twitter feed for a costume and creature effects studio, where they share in-progress photos. I love this skullfaced fox.

Yule Goat Costume – This is some gorgeous cosplay.

The Vagabond Tabby – Soaps, salves, and other stuff for your skin.

The Uncanny Valley of Babies – If Reborns weren’t quite creepy enough for you, now there’s Werepups. (Hat tip to Bruno)

    Dear Satan was one of the most creative short films I’ve seen in ages. Thanks for sharing it.

    And happy holidays!

    Wow, thank you for mentioning my shop! The Vagabond Tabby is closed til the new year (well, the one that happens in a week) for my yearly hibernation but I just finished up a batch of Goblin Market soap & I’ll be back at it soon.

    How’d you find my stuff? Your site looks fun!

    The goat is adorable, so wintery. I hadn’t heard about the Yule Goat before so it was interesting to read about the history.

    I love Christmas ghost stories – the BBC did a whole evening of MR James on BBC4 on Christmas Eve; I loved it!
