Nerf “Zombie Strike” Machete – Nerf has expanded into the zombie-hunting market. This might be a nice costume prop. (There are quite a number of other items in the Zombie Strike line, including swords, bombs, and crossbows.)

Mythic Articulations – Etsy shop specializing in 3D-printed skeletons of mythical creatures. (Hat tip to xJane)

Ghost Underground – Artist Livio Scapella’s series of marble sculptures look like veiled ghosts.

Sugar Skull Rum – (That link goes to a press release about the product; the official site is here, but it’s currently just a shell.) I have no idea what the rum tastes like, but the bottles are pretty. (via Cat)

Some cute kid-friendly fabric designs from Spoonflower: Chibi Great Old Ones, Monsters, There Once Was a Shark That Swallowed a Cephalopod, and Unusual Specimens.

Fiori Couture – Designer of really interesting corsets and accessories. Their Facebook page seems to have a lot more photos of their designs than the main site; I especially love the steel mermaid corset. (via WitchArachne)

The Gaslight Grill – Steampunk-esque London restaurant which specializes in “vintage” afternoon tea.

Good Omens on BBC Radio – Gaiman and Pratchett’s novel is being adapted for radio and will be broadcast this December.

Cheese “Cemetery” – This party cheese plate (complete with Brie casket!) is perfect for a Halloween party. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Author Claims to Have Identified Jack the Ripper – Yeah; let me point you to the important bit of this article (emphasis mine): “Jack the Ripper, one of the most notorious serial killers in history, has been identified through DNA traces found on this shawl, according to a book to be published Tuesday.” Uh-huh.

    Oh my stars, that cheese cemetery is going to go great with my Pottery Barn coffin cheese board!

    I participated in a pillow fight with 100% down pillows, was hit in the head, and saw stars. I feel like the “nerf stabby weapons” thing is a Bad Idea™.

    The Secret Garden Corset is on sale for only $2000!!

    Now I have another place to visit next time I’m in London!!

    I am so stoked for the Good Omens radioplay!!! One of my favorite books ever.

    Did you see the gorgeous “I love craft” and the “most wonderful and strange toile” – must get me some of that – on Spoonflower? Thank of the quilts…

    Did you know that Terry Pratchett was diagonosed with early onset Alzheimer’s Disease? Since his diagnosis, he has published at least three (if not more: I haven’t read the ones that aren’t about DiscWorld) major novels and I wonder if he is working with a co-writer. He was in the USA a few years ago at a convention where our doll club had a display of DiscWorld dolls. He was quite impressed and asked if we would send the dolls to England for a convention where he would be speaking. Insurance costs squelched that idea but we basked in the glory of the asking for months!!

    I missed that typo – it should read “Think of the quilts….”

    I should proofread more often.
