Devil’s Fingers – Spooky Video Inspiration –

Looking for non-plastic inspiration to celebrate Hallooween? Nature is not always pretty and beautiful. It can be ghoulish and horrific!

Imagine that you are out walking on a sunny autumn afternoon when you stumble across a fungus emerging from what looks like strange looking eggs. Slender pinkish-red arms emerging from the top which creepily can more freely. The reddish skin is dotted with black spores and the smell. . . A horrid smell that instanlty transfer to you to a horror movie.

Clathrus archeri commonly known as octopus stinkhorn, or devil’s fingers is a fungi with fingers that seems to be looking for you. In the time-lapse video the horror is quick.  The life cycle of the devil’s fingers takes place over several hours.

Pause the video and make some sketches of this spookilicious fungi!

And here is more spooky inspiration straight from nature!

Wishing all my readers and followers on Facebook a Halloween filled with ghoulish food and crazy ideas!
