The Art of Darkness

Another Doggone Link Dump

Black Chandelier – Sells candles with the scent of “imaginary botanicals” like African Stranglehorn and Deadly Kittenshade. Each candle comes with a description of the mytical plant’s properties.

Halloween Crochet Patterns – Huge list of free patterns. I especially like the skull amigurumi.

Brain Cupcake – This is extraordinarily gross-looking.

Crappy Taxidermy – A site devoted to just exactly what it says it is. Some of the items are poorly done, but many are just weird.

Steampunk Novel Reviews – Roundup of recent novels. In particular, Soulless sounds fun.

MARCON – This convention’s 2010 theme is “Necropolis: a year of Horror.” If you’re going to be in the Columbus, OH area, there will probably be some awesome costumes.

The Hangover Fairy – Sculpture from Bent Objects. I think this is just what he looks like.

Bride and Groom Skele-Hands – Little skeletal hands from Etsy seller CherryRiot. These would be a breeze to DIY using miniature skeleton hands and scraps of fabric. I like the idea of using them as a brooch or hair clip.

GrimTweets – Twitter account that retweets mentions of murder, torture, death, and etc. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Creatures – Flickr set of a sculptor who specializes in “imagined creatures.” They’re all very Lovecraftian, and I love that he’s got a few in cages.

Gothic Splendor – Scanned issue of House and Garden magazine featuring some gorgeous decorating ideas from designer Douglas Little. (via Creepy Cupcakes)

Zombaritaville – Song rewritten with zombified lyrics. New posts three times a week.
