Arts previews: Attack of the Killer Crafts! proves Halloween's a perfect time to get crafty

Crafts ain't just for grandma and the kids anymore.

Hardcore craft-dealer What the Rock?! hosts this event showcasing the darker and spookier makings of a very diverse crew of artisans. Alongside WtR?!'s selections, a dreary bunch will be present, including Sugar Kitty's corsetry, gnarly wallets courtesy of Bobbee Skull and haunting stories from Nix Comics Quarterly.

Party games that are not so commonplace will also be there. You'll have the chance to pin arms on zombies and brave the "Gory Hole" in the name of charity - all proceeds go to the Columbus Youth Guild.

The feast will flourish, too. With the Green Meanie Food Truck serving up some not-entirely-greasy fare and Pattycake's baked goods to back it up, the satisfaction session will be in full swing. That hard-to-find Thunderkiss Coffee will also be a-brewin' to get you back on your feet.

It's never made more sense that the Halloween month is a time to get crafty.
