Rarely have I been so completely riveted by a website as I was by this one. Seriously, it was like a trip to a museum, and is perfect for anyone with the slightest bend toward natural history, goth, steampunk, or pirates. (Um yeah, am I the only one who hits all four of those….?)
Are you curious yet?
Where else can you find exquisite lace parasols, skull buttons, coffin flasks, brass keys, edible insects, feathers, preserved genuine spiders’ webs, fans, metal birds’ feet, bones of all varieties (including a mink penis bone!), x-rays of all sorts of critters, bat and butterfly wings, tiny glass vials, shells, vintage medical instruments, kitty cat postcards, and Hitler’s postage stamps?
Where else can you find this?
It’s an absinthe labeled business card holder! So perfect for those of the Steampunk variety! I want one!
That is a genuine mouse paw, preserved in a locket. I’m fairly certain I don’t want one, but I find it…interesting. And who knows? Perhaps someday there will be a costume which requires a mouse foot. I don’t put it beyond the realm of possibility, since only a few short years ago I was scouring the internet for a preserved chicken foot. (For a “Jack Sparrow” costume, in case you wanted to know, and yes, this website does sell preserved chicken feet – where were they when I needed them?)
How about this?
A skeleton marionette! Now honestly, who doesn’t want one of these? I could so take one of these to faire as an accessory to my pirate garb….
Other things I want are the scarab poison ring (actually been looking for one of these, so I’m definitely buying it), and assorted skull beads. I’m always looking for skull beads for my pirate costuming, and these guys have awesome ones. I also love some of the bone jewelry, the skull pill box, the glass vials, and the feathers. There’s also an “eye” bracelet that would be so awesome with something… either pirate or steampunk….
Go here. Go now. Prepare to be amazed, intrigued, and sometimes, just a tiny bit grossed out.
