The Art of Darkness

A Comedy of Link Dumps

August 24th, 2012 by Cobwebs

Black Magic – Ceramic(?) sculpture. I’d love a pair of these shoes in real life, although it’d be impossible to actually walk anywhere in them.

Zombie Bath Salts – Zombie-themed actual bath salts (like, for bathing) from ThinkGeek. The product description assures, “Will not make you eat people.” (Hat tip to Empress Pam)

10 Creepy Halloween Cocktails – Five under 200 calories, five not so much. The “rumpkin” sounds tasty, but I think I’d want to change the name.

Team Human – YA novel about a high-school girl falling in love with a vampire. Sounds sort of like what Twilight should have been. BoingBoing reviews it here.

McMartin Spellbook – Overview of a gorgeous prop spellbook made by Curious Goods.

Dark and Spooky Etsy Shops – A modest roundup. (via Cat)

Text Messages from a Ghost – Sweet, melancholy transcript of a fictional text-message conversation. There’s also a sequel.

Steamdrunks – A “steampunk cocktail” guide. It’s free for the Amazon Kindle.

How to be Goth – A “primer” which tries a little too hard to be funny. On the other hand, you could build a drinking game around how many times you roll your eyes during this video.

Jacket That Has Been Renewed – A nice dark makeover for a boring denim jacket.

    Love the spellbook, thanks for posting. I haven’t made one in a long time, but maybe it’s time for another Book of Shadows. The Etsy shops link seems to not be working, or at least that’s what it showed when I tried to use it, would love to see what shops it pertains to. And the How to be Goth…..grrrr…..these people are so amusing. Have a dark weekend everyone! R.I.P.

    Since Shau does mostly photo-manip, I’m guessing that gorgeous shoe is just in her mind. She does lots of neat, creepy work.

    A bartender friend of mine just introduced me to the Blue Moon cocktail. I think we can make an exception and use it to celebrate drinking instead of just a plain ol’ blue moon!

    Team Human sounds like it’s right up my alley. Will have to Kindle it!
