As some of you know, I’ve been recovering from surgery for the past month, and it has seriously screwed with my usual pre-Halloween schedule. On the other hand, we’re moving house soon (don’t know where yet), so no decorating this year. I wasn’t supposed to buy anything, but…well…have you seen those mirror bats at Target? End result: weird Halloween. I have been making things for my Month of Spookdays, albeit slowly.
This week’s links start with something I got on one of my few, careful, recovery outings. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.
Their website doesn’t work, and I don’t see an online shop, but I love Two Charming Chix’s necklaces.

Mr. & Mrs. Halloween list over 70 scary movies for the season, and have a free calendar PDF for planning your marathon.
If you’re near New Hope, PA, stop by the Creeper Gallery so I can live vicariously through you.
Quick post today as I need to fall over (still recovering from surgery). Here is some OMG SPOOKY-CUTE from Nikury.
Witchy Terrarium Charm, $9.01
Witchy Cauldron Charm, $9.01
Feline Familiar Vinyl Stickers, $4.20+
PixelOccult is the shop of James Brothwell of Portland, Oregon.
Sinking Wasteland Tarot
He has two decks in his Etsy shop, both so gorgeous I couldn’t feature just one.
The Sinking Wasteland Tarot is his post-apocalyptic vision. Toxic waters threaten his wasted world, which took him about two years to create.
Neon Moon Tarot
The Neon Moon Tarot is another sci-fi deck, this time with a cyberpunk theme.
Like the Sinking Wasteland deck, James aims for diversity in ethnicity and body type.
His bright, limited color palette evokes a vibrant, twisted future. I’d love to have both of these decks on my shelf.
This guy has been on Oddities several times.
Missmonster is the shop of Melita Curphy, who makes all sorts of beautiful, imaginative costume pieces, dolls, clothes, etc.
Corvus Helm, $465
Glow in the Dark Shark Tooth Pendant, $24
Crystal Raven Glow in the Dark Wall Bust, $85
Curphy also sells items on other sites, like Shirt.Woot, Design by Humans, and Five and Diamond.
Werewolf skull shirt, $25
Snake Leggings, $70. They have plus sizes, but they’re kind of a joke. Dear retailer: XXXXL is *not* a size 18-20.
Lisa Toms is a Spanish doll maker. She makes plenty of realistic stuff, but I’m more about the fantasy.
Fire Salamander (note: this is a fantasy critter–fire salamanders don’t look like this)
I cannot possibly love this fantasy possum more.
Possum Forest Spirit
She also does pet commissions.
Pancake the Rat
She designed enamel pins to fill her Etsy shop between doll sales.
Baby Mandranimal Pins
You can find Lisa’s work on deviantArt, Facebook, and Instagram.
Mini Dragon Spirit
Pygmy Griffin Chick
