  3. Fiction, a Gallery Show of Wonderfully Subtle and Strange Portraits of Literary Characters

    eye candy

    Modern Eden is showcasing the work of a number of artists all working off of the same idea: painted portraits of fictional characters old and new, from all genres. The portraits are lovely, but since they're original art, you'll be reaching deep to get one for yourself. Better to just gaze at them through the internet and sigh longingly. We've posted a few here, but there are more than two dozen at Modern Eden's site.

  4. Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Let’s Us Know What Neil Gaiman’s Coraline Characters Smell Like

    this exists

    Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab have created body and household scents inspired by Hellboy, Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth and more. Their latest pulls from Neil Gaiman's delightful Coraline. "The Coraline Collection" is based on locations and characters from the book like Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, The Cat, and the Mouse Circus. BPAL writes, "This is a charitable, not-for-profit venture: proceeds from every single bottle go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which works to preserve and protect the First Amendment rights of the comics community." And you might have noticed, the artwork for the collection was done by Eisner Award and Harvey Award winning cartoonist Vera Brosgol (creator of Anya's Ghost).

    Power Grid

    Depending on whom you ask, tomorrow might be Valentine's Day, Singles Awareness Day, or Day-Before-Discount-Candy-At-Duane-Reade Day. Like it or not, romance is a big deal tomorrow, at least if you're in the States. And to, er, celebrate, I decided to write about movies and TV shows that don't have any romance. Sadly, there aren't as many of them as you might think.

  6. 8 Favorite Literary Horror Heroines

    Power Grid

    Halloween's about dressing up and eating candy (and, for many adults, getting incredibly drunk). But that doesn't have to be all it's about. Back in 2010 Neil Gaiman suggested a new Halloween tradition of giving away a scary book to a friend on that most spooky of holidays. Since then that basic idea has evolved into All Hallow's Read, and we here at The Mary Sue are supporting it by highlighting eight of our favorite literary horror heroines. All of the books we’ve mentioned here—including one by Gaiman himself, which is only fitting—come with the TMS stamp of approval if you want to participate in the AHR tradition of book-gifting.

  8. Just In Time for Halloween: Creepy Button-Eyed Coraline Makeup Video

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    I'm not sure how much utility this video has as a makup tutorial, since I don't speak Italian, but it certainly was cool to watch. Also I hope that's not just regular old craft glue at the end. It is definitely a step up from the needle and treat the Other Mother usually uses, though.
