The Art of Darkness

Charlie and the Chocolate Link Dump

October 15th, 2010 by Cobwebs

The Art of Cutting Leaves – Amazing examples of real leaves that have had images carefully inscribed on their surfaces. (Hat tip to pdq)

Skel-a-Gnomes – Skeletal garden gnomes. It’d be particularly amusing to replace a neighbor’s normal garden gnome with one of these some dark night.

Labels for Bottles – Easy tutorial for making great-looking vintage “metal” labels.

Helmets – Concept helmets featuring designs like “exposed brain” and “walnut.” BoingBoing, where I found this link, says that these are silkscreened, but they look Photoshopped. (A couple are NSFW.)

Rod Serling Action Figure – This is a one-off custom job, which is a pity; I’d buy one.

A Zombie Ate My Cupcake – Weird cupcake recipes, featuring things like marzipan beetles and meringue bones. (via Creepy Cupcakes)

Cuddly Toys with Mental Illnesses – Sly the hallucinating snake, Lilo the obsessive-compulsive hippo, and several others. Yes, really.

Glittersniffer Cosmetics – Vegan-friendly pigments with names like “Pirate Hooker” and “Deliciously Haunted.” They’ve got a Halloween collection, too. (Hat tip to Jessica)

    I want one of those leaves! I have a framed bodhi leaf in our meditation area, but to have it carved with a buddha or a sutra or a goddess? ::Swoon!::

    Also, I know someone with a garden gnome that I’d love to swap out for one of those skeletons during Hallowe’en!

    Finally, a friend got me the Secret Life of Food, which is a year round version of a Zombie Ate My Cupcake but has some Hallowe’en ideas. I should pick up the Hallowe’en version so I can make awesomeness for her birthday parties!

    I tripped over Rod Serling a while back – *LOVE*. Right up there with the Bronte Sisters Action Figures.
