Vampire Hunter

I should have posted this back in October but this is also post 6,666. A custom engraved Colt Detective Special in .38 Special. Heavily adorned in vampire motif engravings, the ammo actually has carved vampire heads for the bullets. A small container for holy water is included in the coffin carry case. The cleaning rod also doubles as a stake.

Goblin Spider by Forest Rogers

Goblin Spider was inspired by a folktale and traditional Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Elaborate hairpins made me think “legs,” of course. I also noticed that many beauties were depicted holding a bit of folded fabric or tissue in their mouths. This was a come-hither symbol, sufficiently demure to get past court censors but widely understood as erotic (don’t attempt it with Bounty Duratowel — it loses in translation). Thus, mouse in mouth.

Beautifully macabre and unsettling.

That’s just ten kinds of creepy and wrong. But at the same kind awesome, in a horrific, guilty, terrible kind of way.

Ludwig Rösch (Austrian, 1865-1936), Die Pilgramkanzel in St. Stephan. Pastel on paper, 65 x 52 cm.


How beautiful, yet delightfully unsettling and perhaps even melancholy. I love the contrast of stillness, those strong vertical lines, with the uneasy twisting of those serpentine stairs. There’s something non-specifically foreboding about the image.
