We all know that cats are evil on the inside. The designers at Pyropet were well aware of this, and as Kisa the Candle burns, she melts away to reveal her menacing skeleton inside.
Cats have always had a split personality. One minute purring contentedly the next hissing and temperamental. While they are cute and huggable they have a dark side associated with witchcraft and sorcery. Kisa was created to capture this duality. Kisa performs a slowly unfolding transformation from cute kitty to brooding skeleton.
Kisa is available to adopt at Inked Magazine’s Inked Shop in both grey and pink.
We’re giving one pink Kisaaway, courtesy of Inked Magazine’s Inked Shop! To enter to win, just leave a comment below! We’ll pick a winner at random on Friday, February 27!
The Haute Macabre Etsy Shop of the Week is Contrived to Charm, creating hand crafted custom leather belts, boot straps, and tarot card cases. Contrived to Charm has been on my radar since I purchased one of the tarot cases at the Black Lodge pop up shop last year, and now I’m seeing plenty more I’d like to add to my collection.
Handmade in San Diego, California, and inspired by vintage nostalgia and style, Contrived to Charm creates pieces that are perfect for all of you fashionista witches out there.
Sadly, this is just a concept at the moment- you can’t actually buy it anywhere. But just imagine all the fun you could have, what with your coffee table levitating and sliding around on the rug every time someone accidentally asked a question….

In a back corner of a Royal Street gallery in New Orlean’s French Quarter is a handmade dollhouse, that on first glance, doesn’t seem much like anything. I walked past it at least twice before noticing its inhabitants, and then I stood there for at least fifteen minutes taking it all in.
Artist Chris Roberts-Antieau created a replica model of Truman Capote’s true-crime book, In Cold Blood, detailing the 1959 farmhouse murder of the Clutter family, at the hands of robbers looking for an alleged safe full of cash in the home.
Roberts-Antieau has created a steady balance of cheery and macabre in her works, with the dollhouse being no exception. Her series of Tragic Snowglobes are also bright and sunny, until on further inspection you find the sordid subjects engaged in not-so-squeaky clean behavior.
Should you find yourself ever wandering the streets of the French Quarter, do stop into her Royal Street gallery.
