Om Nom Nom Welcome – This is a brilliantly easy Halloween porch decoration.

Anatomical Skull Makeup – Tutorial for a great-looking “Dia de los Muertos”-style skull face.

Cave Spider Hiding Itself – The arachnid equivalent of an ostrich is sort of adorable. (Hat tip to Beans)

12 Gorgeous Gourds – Lovely dried gourds cut and made into lamps. Something similar (but much simpler) might be accomplished with dried Halloween-type gourds and a Dremel tool.

Skull Ornaments – These pretty chromed-glass skulls would look great on a Christmas tree.

Halloween Vampire Nails – Video tutorial on creating a great-looking “blood-dripping nails” manicure. The same channel has lots of other nice tutorials, like Toxic Nails and Black Gold Lips. (Hat tip to Sisifo)

Brave New Pattern – The Prodigal Sock is looking for “beta knitters” to test a cute little skull-patterned baby hat.

X-ray Laptop Skin – FunFuzion makes a line of “fool the eye” laptop skins. This one is nicely skeletal.

Gabriel von Max Exhibit – An exhibition entitled “Be-tailed Cousins and Phantasms of the Soul” is going on this month at the Frye Museum in Washington. (Hat tip to xJane)

Frozen Ghost Vodka – It probably tastes like lighter fluid, but the label is magnificent.
