The Art of Darkness

The Link Dump of Otranto

November 19th, 2010 by Cobwebs

The Edward Gorey House Museum – Joanna of the Morbid Anatomy blog visited the museum and wrote about her pilgrimage. I must own the weathervane in the second photo.

Cthulhu Stuff – Toys, collectibles, and whatnot from Entertainment Earth. (Hat tip to Charity)

33 A.D. – Straight up, Jesus vs. the vampires. I blame Stephenie Meyer.

Spooky Knit Patterns – Some free patterns from Lion Brand Yarn. (You have to register at the site to access them, which is why the link goes to some photos at CRAFT.) I like the witch-finger gloves.

The Halloween Bride – New-ish blog devoted to…just what it sounds like. (via hinkenhook)

Science Saved My Soul – Not goth. Just lovely.

Funeral Wreath – Photo snapped at a wake by someone on Reddit. “He had a huge sense of humor.” Hee.

The Art of Darkness – Makeup collection from Illamasqua. Since it shows up in my Google Alerts ALL THE DAMN TIME, I may as well link to it.

Murder Pamphlets – Online collection of the lurid “true crime” pamphlets that were popular in the 19th Century.

John Cusack as Poe – First photos from a movie I wasn’t even aware they were making. He looks pretty good.

Star Wars Calaveras – Various Star Wars characters drawn as traditional “Day of the Dead” figures. Little Darth Vader is adorable!

    John Cusack doesn’t look quite as dissipated as Poe. But I can’t think of anyone better, Robert Downey Jr is too short.
    Oh, I think it might be all Anne Rice’s fault.

    Love the wreath (my sister in law left that same message as a thank you note when she stayed at my placeā€¦I grinned widely at both)!

    Also, the Raven? Yes please! I heart John Cusack and am looking forward to seeing him as Poe!

    I can’t help but think that John Cusack as Poe just looks like John Cusack with a fake beard. Like he might rip it off an become a superhero or something.

    Ah, well. I’m excited anyway.
