The Art of Darkness

A Link Dump by Any Other Name

October 28th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Rachael Rossman – Artist who does commission watercolor portraits, including some nice Day of the Dead-themed stuff.

Brain Cakes – These jarred cakes with squiggly-icing “brains” are wonderfully revolting. (I’d be tempted to put labels on them like, “Hans Delbruck” and “Abby Normal.”)

Abandoned Crypts – Urban exploration of abandoned cemetery crypts in Belgium.

Monsters in the Movies – Great history of movie monsters written by John Landis.

Cakeland – Artist Scott Hove creates “cakes” and other desserts featuring fangs and disembodied limbs. Yum!

Ossuary Dice – Set of neat 3-D printed dice shaped like piles of skulls. I have no idea how accurate they are as dice, but they look great.

Growing-up for Goths – Interesting article on why goths tend not to leave the culture as we get older. (Hat tip to WitchArachne)

Polly Tights – I like these cute “weeping” tights, but think they’d be pretty easy to re-create with a bit of fabric paint for quite a bit less than £38/$60.

Getting in the Halloween Spirit – I think this is a brilliant idea.

Sparkly Tattoo Tutorial – Easy instructions for making a temporary tattoo from any image you like.
