Animals eating animals

Sadly, Pop Ink no longer sells these cutesie cannibal-themed plates. Oh well. I'll keep an eye out for their return and let you know if they ever become available again.

One dead twin

Ad for Ritual Magazine showing a young girl holding hands with the ghost of her dead twin.  Creepy, but beautiful.This gorgeous ad was created for Ritual magazine. "The first italian magazine of dark, gothic, electro, industrial music and culture." It depicts "the ghoulish and gloomy story of Melissa and Mircalla, who never had the chance of being sisters." Beautiful.

Bat and demon wallpaper













Trustworth Studios creates beautiful hand silk-screened wallpaper from vintage designs originally created in the 1890s during the English Arts and Crafts Movement. And though their per role price certainly isn't cheap, they do offer one option that most other wallpaper manufacturers don't... they will sell their designs by the foot! And at just $7 per foot, that's a pretty good deal. So you can spend $21 or $28 on bat wallpaper, toss it in a frame and BOOM!- instant art.

Friends of the Wicked Witch?

Rock & Roll devil horns have never looked so bad-ass! This quintet rocked so long, and so hard, they literally melted.

Broken Glass candy













Two thoughts...
1) I wish this product really existed and wasn't just a clever design idea.
2) I wonder if parents would let their kids eat this if it ended up in their bag of loot on Halloween.

Skeleton bracelet for the uber-wealthy

I like the idea of this skeleton bracelet by Delfina Delettrez, but $29,000!?! No way! Maybe someone on Etsy will come up with an inexpensive variation.

Zombie cake














A mother made this fantastic zombie birthday cake for her low-budget zombie film-loving eight year-old daughter. The tombstone is made of cardboard, but absolutely everything else is edible. Apparently, this is one of the first 3-D cakes she's ever created. Amazing.

Play-Doh Operation

Why is this only available in the UK? Don't they think American kids would enjoy pulling Play-Doh organs out of a small plastic body?

Animal skeleton wallpaper

We're in the process of repainting my son's room. Maybe we should consider this wallpaper instead.
"Most children get to an age when they’re intrigued by slightly macabre things. They watch Dr Who on a Saturday night – from behind the sofa. And they can’t help poking with a stick at that dead bird they found. It’s a bit scary, but it’s fascinating. It’s even fun. And they’re often intrigued by skeletons, too. Perhaps it’s a way of beginning to get to grips with the dark side of life, with mortality, in a safe way. Perhaps it’s just because skeletons have such fantastic shapes. Animal Magic explores this fascination in a light-hearted way by presenting a slightly sinister side of the traditional, benign family pet. We’ve printed the pet’s skeleton on top of its silhouette in a varnish of the same colour. This means it shouldn’t show at night – so it’s not too scary when the lights are out. But it catches the light during the day when all the spooks are gone. So the children’s interest in the dark and scary can be indulged in an intriguing way. And still be beautiful."

Munsters Casting Set

The Munsters Casting Set. This toy (circa 1964) lets you make molded figures of the entire Munsters cast. If I'm actually able to find one, I wonder if it would still work. The box art is fantastic, but it would be even better to have fully molded & painted Munsters on display nearby.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Knitting naked women, symmetry and skulls. Who could ask for anything more?

Crocodiles have trouble showing gratitude

This is horrible. "A vet-erinarian's arm dripping in a crocodile's mouth in southern Taiwan, China, April 11, 2007. The veterinarian's arm was bitten off while he was treating the injured crocodile."
