* For the past few years, I've made special boxes of candy for my friends and co-workers. No co-workers this year, but the boxes continue. Here are some favorite places to find just the right graphic elements:
- The Graphics Fairy has everything from beautiful butterflies to antique photos waiting to be modified. She even takes requests!
- The UCLA Library site took some digging, but the reward is high-resolution pdfs of the Antikamnia Calendar - happy little skull-headed men going about their daily activities.
- Historical Anatomies on the Web. Once again, you gotta look around but there are plenty of skeletons and muscles to choose from.
- The Fantastic in Art and Fiction, from Cornell University, supplies demons, more skeletons in clothes, and a naked witch riding a broom.
- Just Something I Made has lots of stuff that can be easily modified for nefarious Halloween purposes. These apothecary labels include a "danger poison" label, and here's a lovely ornate gravestone border.
- And of course there's Dover. Their Old-Time Halloween book and CD combo is great, because the CD includes higher quality jpegs.
