Crystal Visions – Easy DIY ideas for crystal balls. (Hat tip to xJane)

How the Horror Community is Celebrating Pride Month – My favorite bit is the fact that the producers of The Babadook have fully embraced their accidental status as an LGBTQ icon instead of trying to downplay it.

Rat Silicon Mold – Baking mold for making rat-shaped chocolates, cupcakes, and similar items.

PĂșca Festival – Ireland is planning a new festival which celebrates it as the birthplace of Halloween. (via Spooky Moon)

Zuul Terror Dog Replica – Spirit Halloween is selling a life-size Ghostbusters terror dog prop.

Monster Etiquette – A guidebook for genteel monster behavior. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

The Thoughts of a Spiderweb – There’s evidence that some spiders offload some of their thinking and memories to their webs.

The Shortest Story – “Postcard stories from impossible worlds.” Very short stories (sadly not screen reader-accessible, since they’re images). I like this one and this one.

Scooby Doo Origin Stories – This Tumblr thread provides backstories for the Scooby gang and they’re pretty great.

Monster Foot Tutorial – DIY video for realistic-looking cosplay monster feet. (Hat tip to pdq)

    Those Babadook memes always make me laugh.

    With the end of the Game of Thrones TV franchise, I have fewer opportunities to throw parties that involve pastry rats and more’s the pity, because I made a solid set of Manderly hot pies (HOT PIE!) and Rat Cook rats would’ve gone most excellently with that.

    It would go nicely alongside my Bolton cheese ball that caused an exponential amount of leftovers because apparently, presenting a skinless face for eating makes people not hungry anymore?
