The first time I heard a psychobilly song was on a Geico commercial of all places. After that, I sent away for a Th’ Legendary Shack*Shakers cd and have been in love with that type of music since. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies, Halloween, and creepiness in general, so it was easy to love other aspects of psychobilly subculture as well.
If you’re a fan of zombies, tattoos, and retro fashion, you might fall in love with it as well. Check out what these amazing Etsy sellers have made!
It is sometimes believed that evil eyes can bestow curses upon others. As spooky as that may be, I found some that are pretty gorgeous.
Jill Lawrence of Twisted Sister Arts hand paints beautiful evil eyes and then secures them in intricate wire settings.
There are a few in the shop that I have my eye on, go take a look today!

I’ve never been much of a doll girl. Dolls used to bring to mind frilly pink dresses, golden curls, and fragile, delicate faces. That was until I discovered art dolls. That term is used to represent a wide range of figures and mediums, but is usually a sculpted and/or plush art piece meant for display. After discovering all these geeky art pieces, I won’t think of dolls the same way again, and I doubt you will either.

I love anatomy and biology. I never had aspirations for a medical profession, but have always been fascinated with how organic things are created and function.
Not only are body parts interesting, they can also be pretty creepy if they aren’t in their proper place, so I thought they would make a very appropriate topic for the beginning of October.
We all love brains! Literally and figuratively. The rubiks cube below isn’t just a puzzle for your brain, it is a brain. It’s amazingly realistic and I love the concept. Freeny’s gallery also includes sculptural anatomy cross-sections of your favorite video game characters and toys, including Mario and Lego men.
