Let’s just take a moment to absorb the greatness of the title alone: Nightmare in Wonderland. This project is a an artistic tribute to Tim Burton that takes place in four outstanding group art shows.

I’ve always wanted to visit Prague, and on my list of attractions in the area is The Museum of Alchemists and Magicians.
According to the website, here, you can look under the lids of bowls of emperor Rudolf’s alchemists. At first you will immerse in the wisdom texts of the alchemists, alchemy and personalities associated with alchemy, whether the alchemists themselves, or unexpected examples as Charles IV or William Shakespeare.
You are going to walk through a magical room of the Faust´s house and then, subtly initiated, you will climb the spiral of life up to the sky. By the „spiral of life“ we mean the spiral staircase bulit by Kelley in the 16th century, and almost in heaven, in the attic between the beams from the times of Rudolf II, you will find the authentic atmosphere of the laboratory of one of the most famous alchemists of Rudolphine times, the master Edward Kelley, who lived in this house.
I have a sneaking suspicion that at least part of my house will look exactly like the picture below about 10 years from now. That’s the direction it’s heading. I’m not a hoarder (no really!)…I’m an aspiring alchemist.
There is also an alchemical lab PUB on the premises! Click to enlarge photo (Formulas on the walls! Glorious!).
Jon Neill deserves his own post for his fabulous carvings (but alas he will have to share it with some links). Incredible designs:
And now a few other links…
The Blood Curdling Blog of Monsters (a plethora of posts about masks)
My Favorite Spooky Socks This Year (wish-listed!)
Le Chat Noir (Exhibit at Modern Eden Gallery showcasing artwork featuring black cats).
This video is utterly bonkers. They…turned Halloween up to 11.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone!
I just got engrossed in Haunted Overload for too long. It is an attraction filled with beautifully wicked things to look at, and their use of ambient lighting perfectly compliments the props and scenery.
From the Haunted Overload mission statement:
Haunted Overload is simply one of the most creative and unique haunted attractions in New England. Now located on the DeMeritt Hill Farm on Route 155 in Lee NH. The show has twice been voted one of the top 13 haunted attractions in the country.
Focusing on quality, we are committed to giving the customer the ultimate Halloween experience at an affordable price. Nowhere else can you see huge monsters looming over the crowd, some as tall as 34 feet. The authentic farm location provides the perfect backdrop for the hundreds of lighted pumpkins and movie quality sets.
Has anyone visited?
Here we have a great reader submission: The Doll Asylum.
Founded in 1867 by German Dr. Hermann Reinhardt, the Doll Asylum’s purpose was to receive dolls who were abandoned, neglected, or most importantly, showing signs of psychotic or murderous behavior.
Doll Maker by hobby, Dr. Reinhardt thought he could bridge the gap between the inanimate and animate and stomp out the dark thoughts that lay beneath.
While no true success was to be had in his day, Dr. Reinhardt did establish a home for those unwanted creatures and in doing so, has protected society at large.
We continue that tradition and throw open our doors to the public 4 days a year to show what his good work has wrought. We cannot guarantee your safety or mind or spirit, but we will have cookies.
Has anyone in Portland gone here?
I’m not sure how many of you (amazing readers) are in LA. Did anyone get to the Suggestivism Chronology opening at Copro Gallery?
