The Art of Darkness

Dances with Link Dumps

January 21st, 2011 by Cobwebs

Heinous Hats – Blog devoted to “hats with character, as well as the people who wear them.” All kinds of interesting hat designs; I’m rather taken with the spider one here.

Lovely, Beastly Bones – Photogallery of skeletons from the archive of LIFE Magazine. I’d love to have a bunch of these blown up and framed.

Organ Scarf – Cute scarf made with appliqued felt organs. This blogger is doing a “scarf a day” for the month of January, and has several other unique designs, such as the Neck Newt, too.

The Padawan’s Guide – This is more geeky than gothy, but it’s such a nicely-detailed site I wanted to mention it: Everything you wanted to know about making Star Wars costumes.

The Ghosts of Old London – Haunting photographs from the late 1800s.

X-Ray Lampshade – I love this idea.

Deadlicious – Specializes in pastries and other sweets themed like luchadores and calaveras, you guys, I don’t even know. Anyway, some interesting packaging and decorating ideas. (Hat tip to Seigmar S.)

ETOMB – Prototype for a bluetooth-wired headstone. We all know it’s going to happen eventually.

The Bead You Need – Etsy seller specializing in lampwick beads. I especially like the GemBonz.

Hipsterberry Finn – Someone responded to the newly-bowdlerized Huckleberry Finn by replacing the n-word with “hipster.” I think I might like this better than the original.

Jack Pops – These Jack Skellington candy lollipops are beyond adorable. (via Creepy Cupcakes)

The 5 Most Half-Assed Monsters in Movie History – Word.

p.s. – Since they have somehow, slowly, ineluctably, turned into a regular feature on the site, Link Dumps have been broken out into a category of their very own. All of the weirdness the Web has to offer is a mere click away.

    I agree with the captioner; what really makes that spider hat is the rest of her outfit. Also? the Kracken (kracken,kracken!) scoodie.

    The Link Dumps are invaluable. But all of them in one place, while a wonderful convenience, seems slightly sinister. Approve.
