Another Link Dump

More links from the vault…

Criminal Crafts – Etsy seller who specializes in items like shiv cozies and ransom note kits. I like their paper funeral diorama.

Day of the Dead Crafts – A neat book of craft projects for the Day of the Dead celebrations.

Creepy Candles – An easy way to make taper candles appear to be dripping blood. (via Creepy Cupcakes)

Zombie Gelatin Mold – A crawling zombie torso made of Jell-o is just the thing for a casual get-together, don’t you think?

Six Feet Over – A mobile featuring zombie silhouettes. Which they caution is not recommended for children. It’d still look awesome over a crib.

Build an Eco-Friendly Coffin – Mother Earth News article on green funerals and plans for DIY coffins. You could make them in advance and use them as storage boxes or, y’know, “end” tables. (Hat tip to Linda)

A Real “Corpse Bride” – Article about a rural Chinese practice of which I was previously unaware.

Atlas Obscura = “A Compendium of the This Age’s Wonders, Curiosities and Esoterica.” Neat site detailing odd locations around the world.

Rockabye Baby – I thought I’d mentioned this series before, but apparently was hallucinating. It’s lullaby renditions of rock music by bands like Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins. (Shadowboy loves his Led Zeppelin CD from this series.)

Last year I mentioned Yankee Candle’s Boney Bunch” product line, which included a skeletal bride and groom and which sold out in about 30 seconds. Check out what the awesome wildeprose recently left in the comments on that post. Spooky weddings for everybody!
