The Art of Darkness

Attack of the Killer Link Dump

February 18th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Inseparable – Interesting “circle of death” artwork by Jennybird Alcantara. There are lots of other surreal works at her site as well.

The Dictionary of Victorian London – This is a phenomenal resource for anyone interested in Victorian London. See also The Cat’s Meat Shop, a sort of blog/appendix.

Mad Tea Party – Wonderful invitations and design ideas for an Alice-themed party.

HILDOOM – Etsy seller specializing in polymer clay cake toppers. The Jack and Sally is gorgeous. (It might be possible to DIY something similar to the ghosts.)

H.R. Giger Webstore – Giger’s official store, featuring jewelry and other cast items based on his artwork.

Octophrost – Pattern for a cute little stuffed octopus which could easily be made green and significantly more Cthulhu-esque. This pattern also inspired one of the most awesome Christmas trees evar. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Island of the Dolls – This is a tourist destination in Mexico. :::shudder:::

Edgar Allen Poe Library – A home fragrance collection that purports to smell like Edgar Allen Poe’s library.

Skeleton Wreath – Tutorial for making a decorative wreath from prop bones.

9baby.ca – Small collection of punk-ish shirts and onesies for children. I particularly like the skeleton onesies in the boys section, which I can’t link to directly because Flash is evil.

Custom Spell – Oh, look. You can arrange to have a custom spell cast by a witch selling her services on eBay. I would totes expect that to work. Two comments: 1) What happened to that whole “whatever you cast comes back to you threefold” schtick? 2) I love the disclaimer at the very bottom of the listing, absolving them of all liability for paranormal activity.

    THe Ebay witch lists herself as Voodoo, and (in that tradition/belief system) you can cast dark work and cleanse/divorce yourself from the karmic backlash. Same with traditional Hoodoo. She comes off as Wiccan in her “Merry Meet” shtick though. That ain’t Voodoo/Hoodoo.

    Why did I look at that doll island link just before bed????

    Thank you for the dictionary, me and my time traveling Victorian friends will have a heyday with it!

    Also, whether or not Poe’s library really smelled like “Cardamom, Absinthe and Sandalwood”, I wouldn’t mind mine smelling that way!
