It’s scary how often nowadays you read about some quack getting arrested for performing plastic surgery procedures without a license. Usually, someone tries to do an at-home butt augmentation or a boob job. But some quacks think they’re skilled enough to mess around with other people’s blood. Take 45-year-old massage therapist Sandra Gonzalez of Long Beach, California: she was arrested last week when a client died in her beauty salon while getting an unspecified cosmetic injection.

We’ve written about “reborn dolls” before: they are extremely lifelike baby dolls which are often purchased by women who have suffered miscarriages and/or had abortions. Often women dress them up in outfits and give them names. The dolls are usually pretty creepy-looking on their own, but this vampire baby reborn doll for sale on Etsy.com is gives me extra chills.

There once was a time when, upon hearing of vampires or werewolves, people did not automatically jump to express devotion to Team Whatever. (I can’t even.) In fact, people actually whipped out their wooden crosses and silver bullets and ran. Of course, nowadays we don’t run for any damn thing, but it’s always fun to recall a time when these monsters struck genuine fear in the hearts of humans… especially around Halloween. Keep reading »

Random fact: Lindsay Lohan has a vampire fetish. Her friend, photographer Tyler Shields, displayed four pics of an undead LiLo at an art gallery in Los Angeles. “Lindsay loves vampires,” Tyler told People magazine at the exhibit’s opening on Saturday night. “It’s well documented that she is a vampire fan, and I said we need to do the craziest vampire mouth shot ever with her mouth.” (That’s “The Vampire Diaries”‘s Michael Trevino biting her neck.) Do you suppose Lindsay-as-vampire is some kind of meta commentary on the relationship between celebrities and the paparazzi and gossip press? Nah. She probably just likes those fake fangs.

Holy “Twilight“-ization of pop culture, Edward Cullen! Vampires are used to sell everything nowadays — even teeth-cleaning. The UK’s National Health Service debuted a bodice-heaving, undead-themed commercial to lure toothy British dudes to the dentist. (According to Yahoo, 16- to 34-year-old men “are notoriously lax about their dental appointments.” Ack! These guys should come with warning labels.) As much as I think vampires are over, this ad is super-clever, no? [Yahoo] Keep reading »
