Posted in animation, candy coated nightmares, macabre, video with tags , , , on March 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve posted about Megan Petasky before. This video of hers is guaranteed to be one of the creepiest cartoons you see today (assuming you watch a lot. You watch a lot, right?).

Though not quite for the faint of heart, the group show going on at Modern Eden Gallery right now is definitely worth checking out for those who can attend.

Your can tour the online gallery of multimedia projects…so hideous…so hard to look away.

Conjuruer’s Kitchen

Posted in anatomy, craft, food, macabre, sculpture with tags , , , , on January 28, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Conjuruer’s Kitchen makes the most majestic macabre morsels I’ve seen.

Yes, this is a cake. They all are.

I find it very interesting…the crossing of gag-worthy subject matter with delicious confections. To eat or not to eat…

I was gifted a Conjurer’s Kitchen hand-sculpted white chocolate raven skull by the lovely and talented Tonya Hurley…it’s too beautiful to eat. I keep it on display.

Creepmas Day 9: Madame Macabre Shop

Posted in christmas, craft, decoration, macabre with tags , , , on December 9, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Madame Macabre Shop has what may be my favorite creepy ornaments. Unlike the standard “spooky” fare, these are actually disconcerting…in a masterfully subtle way.

Almost Lovecraft-ian…yet so unique…

Oh, you think your pumpkin is scary? THIS is how they did it in early 20th Century Ireland.

Ah, the 80′s…when movies had their own cheese-tastic rap theme songs. Take Monster Squad for example. What’s your favorite 80′s horror movie?
