Zombies, Run!

When it comes to workouts, I’m a yoga fiend and a Pilates junky. But I’ve always said that the only way you’ll see me running is if zombies are chasing me. Turns out, there’s an App for that.     Zombies, Run! is an interactive iPhone game (out on Android shortly) that lets you play out […]

Recommended Reading: The Night Circus

Samantha has been going on about Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus for months, so I finally got around to reading it. It is fantastic. There will be obvious comparisons to Geek Love, to Tim Burton’s work back before he sucked, and to Neil Gaiman, but the book manages to take in all of those influence without becoming […]


I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried. Thanks, Urban Dictionary. The real question is, which definition should Haute Macabre sponsor? {ad#post ad image]

Great Shot. Terrible Name.

Really, Givenchy? Because we all want to smell like the brutally murdered? Even for a site that calls itself Haute Macabre, that’s just creepy.


If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may know that I am fascinated by prosthetic legs. From old antique ones to Alexander McQueen’s hand-carved wooden boots, there is something about prostheses that screams to me of a post-biological future. From the first time I saw the Flex-Foot Cheetah and realized that prostheses […]

Cabinet of Carnal Curiosities

Errr…  does the phrase “Butt Rogers” mean anything to you? I don’t often cover super-duper steampunk stuff, but this time around I just had to share. Lady Clankington’s  Cabinet of Carnal Curiosities produces “Infernal Devices” you could get away with wearing to your next Steam Punk Tea Party. Assuming you washed them first.  Via Unplggd.

Haute Macabre Approved: Agyness Deyn

Even though I put in several hours a week scouring magazines and fashion blogs, I really don’t care about models. I can’t even tell them apart. For the most part, other than a few truly legendary ladies that any old Joe off the street could identify from a mile away, I don’t even know their […]

Good News, Hot Chick

As of yesterday, two days of meetings of the International Whaling Commission failed to lift the ban on commercial whaling. While some states continue to slaughter whales and dolphins outside the ban (notably Japan, Iceland, and Norway), this is still great news. And if you haven;t seen the video yet, Alice Delial does a fine […]

Black and Bandage

Numero # 112 I’m starting to track a nice color trend here and there that I can only call “Black and Bandage”, because I’m not quite sure what to call the medical-tape color involved.  You’ll see it in several editorials we’ve posted recently, like Olga and Fower. It’s not exactly camel, and it’s certainly not […]
