‘Tis the season to be costumed! I love dressing up so much that my friends and I call Halloween (and the days leading up to it) the High Holy Days. You can imagine how seriously I take costumes, and there’s no place better than Etsy to find fabulous costume items.

I should warn you that this year’s ugly offerings* (*NSFW) are off the charts in the high price category. Early on, I started sorting my search results by highest price, and then I just couldn’t stop.
