This Day of the Dead doll is a one-of-a-kind doll made from a Monster High "Travel Scaris" Skelita Calaveritas base. She wears a flowery hat and intricate sugar skull face paint.
The same seller offers this Day of the Dead doll wearing a saucy black and red lacy dress. She wears a white flower crown and an orange streak in her hair.
"Margarita Gold" was a Disney Princess baby doll in her previous life. Now she's a heavily repainted Day of the Dead/El Dia de Los Muertos art doll. She wears a red lacy dress over a skeleton jumpsuit.
Tequila Sunrise, from the same seller, wears an orange gauze dress and orange flowery headpiece. I love her face paint - it makes her look quite astonished.
It's refreshing to see a Day of the Dead doll depicting a boy. This one is "Jimmy Changa."
His little friend is Kay Sadeeya. Love these clever names!
"Anne Chilada" wears a fringed poncho.
"Mary Posa" wears a distinctive butterfly headpiece.
"Frida Lay" is the last OOAK Day of the Dead doll from this seller. She wears a flowery hat and blue shawl.

The film starred Frank Langella as the titular character.

Decorate your bedroom darkly with duvet covers and bedding sets from Alchemy Gothic.
The design also comes in a king duvet set.
If you like to have a hell of a lot of extra pillows on the bed (I certainly do) you can add some matching twin pillowcases.
Alchemy Gothic's "Raven's Curse" bedding features a full moon with a skull face, with a huge black raven imposed over it.
Alchemy Gothic are also responsible for this Edgar Allan Poe themed bedding set, "Nevermore."
"Nevermore" features a raven with a black rose, over a black and blue background, with text from the poem written out at the end of the duvet.
You can buy matching Nevermore twin pillow cases too.
"Name of the Rose" is part of Alchemy Gothic's "Black Rose" artwork collection. This bedding set features a black haired woman wearing a gothic gown, holding up a chalice or goblet.
Any of these bedding sets would look darkly elegant if accessorized with this black four-poster canopy.
Hayley Campbell's book on Neil Gaiman's life. Not a biography, but it lets you peek at his notes, scribblings, doodles, scripts, writings, and inspirations for his books and stories. There are old photos of him, interviews and anecdotes, and a lot of background info on where he got his inspiration for many of his novels.
"Spring Heeled Jack" wears a black and red cape, skeleton shirt, and boots.
The next doll in the series is this Hopping Vampire. I am not sure why a vampire would hop when it could fly, but oh well. Check out his cool little necklace! The Hopping Vampire is also sold on Amazon.

You can have skeletal hands gripping your arms comfortingly all day long with these Cuse of Ezekiel bracelets.
Here's a lovely slave bracelet - I like the suggestion to wear it over a velvet glove so it's more visible.
