The Art of Darkness

A Murder of Link Dumps

August 30th, 2019 by Cobwebs

Famous Poems Rewritten as Limericks – I do like “The Raven” a lot.

Ugly Halloween Sweaters – I don’t know who could possibly call these gorgeous things “ugly.” I would wear the hell out of all of them.

Death is Annoyed – Amusing ‘toon.

Cobra Cake – Unlike a lot of decorated cakes, this snake made of Bundt sections and molded Rice Krispie treats seems achievable by mere mortals.

Romanov Costume Ball – These colorized photos from the 1903 Romanav fancy-dress party has some fantastic cosplay inspiration.

Cheese Graveyard – Super-easy idea for a Halloween party snack.

The Twisted Hatter – Several cool crochet hat designs, including a gorgeous kraken in Halloween colors.

American Gothic Venn Diagram – Southern vs. Midwest vs. Pacific Northwest.

vampires who adopt each other into very specific family roles – An amusing Tumblr thread about “chronological” age vs. “acts like” age.

Evolution – Not really goth, but a rather nice poem.
