Edgar Allan Poe Sweater – Some people wear Christmas sweaters. This is a Halloween sweater.

Cabinets of Wonder – Neat book about wunderkammer.

John Brosio – Painter of weird, often unsettling scenes. The site gallery is somewhat annoying to navigate; you can see examples of his work collected here. (My favorite is the guy with the giant squid. You can just see him thinking, “Dammit, again?”)

The Frosted Petticoat – Etsy shop full of unusual, very detailed, chocolate in the form of things like gears and buttons. (via Cat)

The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman’s wonderful book has been adapted as a graphic novel, with each chapter illustrated by a different artist. That link is Vol 1; here’s Vol 2. There’s an excerpt from the first chapter here.

Creepy Carnival Bat Ride – Online class for creating a Halloween decoration themed like a spooky carnival ride. (Hat tip to Kathy)

Great Moments in Dystopian Knitwear – An amusing roundup of knitted garments in dystopian movies. (via Burning Prairie)

Unicorn Princess Shoes – The “horn” heel is…certainly unique.

Best Friends – I love this illustration by Khoa Le of a “pet” who just wants to sit on its owner’s lap.

“Rocky Horror” Makeup Collection – MAC Cosmetics is releasing a 21-piece collection themed around RHPS.

    Good thing we started our family Christmas list early this year because I suddenly require an apocalyptic chicken painting.

    That sweater! LOL

    I like the painting of the raptors eating that guy.

    I wish I could make epic skull chocolates like those on etsy. I tried to make some from a mold I got during halloween for my wedding, and they were awful.

    Oh and hells yah to the Rocky Horror make up! I already buy MAC so I will need to get some of these.

    Ha! I love the giant crab. Homedude is all, “I could’ve sworn I parked it right here!

    Are they really sugar skulls if they’re made out of chocolate…?

    I am so in love with Katnis’ really crazily chunky and probably useless pullover/shrug. (Saw someone at D*C with one, apparently, there are Etsy shops that cater to just this obsession.) The copy on that slideshow is priceless! and I am ever so happy that Jayne Cobb’s hat was not included. I love Jayne Cobb, but 我的媽和她的瘋狂的外甥都! (wuh duh ma huh tah duh fong kwong duh wai shung) [Holy Mother of God and All Her Wacky Nephews] have I seen it waaaaay too much.

    Oooh! I actually like those shoes!

    Not just “Dammit, again?!?!” but “I just bet my homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover attack by giant squid”

    I also love the giant chickens.

    As a knitter, I approve of those choices. I always knew it would come in handy as a skill post-apocalypse…
