This sculpture is by Marco d’Agrate, 1562 (Duomo cathedral, Milan-Italy)
This is a sculpture of St. Bartholomew who was an Apostle that was said to be skinned alive. If you look closely you will notice that his robe is actually not a robe at all, but his skin. 
 


Oh gosh, I didn’t realize what his ‘robe’ was until I read the caption! How delightfully horrific! *shudder*

Abandoned.

…Near the village of Braachaat, outside Antwerp, Belgium. The last photo shows a grotto-like cave under the mansion that may have been used as a bar in the past.

Red velvet bundt cake

Recipe

that i the most goth cake i have ever encountered.

I need to make something like this.

So do I!

I need this in my life

Oh gosh, that’s beautiful! There’s something slightly visceral about it too, if someone told you it was actually made with blood you’d kind of believe them, even if only for a moment haha!

The High Priest by MichaelBrackfrom the artist: This one is from “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath,” in which a mysterious priest robed in yellow silk lives in an ancient monastery on the plateau of Leng.

What a great, atmospheric peace. There’s a vaguely Lovecraftian vibe I feel.

Jeffrey Campbell - BAT GIRL heels


Hahaha! Those are pretty cool, it has to be said. Actually they’re like a more classy and elegant version of the slippers I made for one of my first projects at uni, except they had bat faces on the font.

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.
