Crocheted Hobbes Scarf – Etsy pattern for a scarf “inspired by” Calvin’s stuffed tiger. If you’d like to keep a friendly tiger close at hand, a scarf seems like a good choice.

Peacock Spider Costume – I don’t like to post Facebook-only stuff, but I can’t find the video anywhere else and it’s too delightful to not share. An entomologist shows off his Halloween costume. (via pdq)

Marbled Candy Apples – Instructions for making candied apples with an attractive swirly candy coating.

Dracula-Inspired Halloween Wedding – I like this. It’s all refined and elegant and then you hit the drag queen dressed as Frank N. Furter.

Raven’s Brew Coffee – Sells coffee with neat labels and fanciful titles like Deadman’s Reach, Wicked Wolf, and Three Peckered Billy Goat.

Our Announcement – Amusing baby announcement done in the style of a horror movie trailer.

Witchcraft Magic: An Adventure In Demonology – Holy carp you guys; did you know that Vincent Price recorded a whole album devoted to witchcraft and demonology? It’s available as an MP3 on Amazon. Dangerous Minds discusses it here.

The Scariest Story Ever Told – Spoooooooky. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Reverse Trick-or-Treating – I’ve seen this gag before, but it cracks me up every time.

Crocheted Jerusalem Cricket – People in the western half of the U.S. should be familiar with these Geiger-esque critters; this crocheted version should be easier to cuddle without worrying about the ouchy mandibles.

    As an English person, my first thought was, “They play cricket in Jerusalem – but what’s spooky about that?”. Doh.

    That wedding looked beautiful, but hiring a removal company to move *70 boxes of stuff*?! I think I could move the contents of my whole house in that many boxes.

    That peacock spider guy made my fucking week, I swear.

    My current second-favorite beer is Wicklow Wolf. (My favorite is Cute Hoor, both of which have the distinction of awesome names while also being delicious.
