As with most other categories I've explored, it seems the key to Etsy style is just sticking things to other things. "Bodycon" dress by IncogneetoVintage

As with most other categories I’ve explored, it seems the key to Etsy style is just sticking things to other things. This winner is described as a “Body con” dress

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)

I have done my share of clubbing over the years, sporting styles that I thought were fabulous at the time, but which would be fairly hilarious today. We wore all kinds of nutty stuff, but I have to say that the current selection of clubwear is every bit as ridiculous as the crap we went out in. An Etsy search for club clothes turns up quite a range of options from lame to lavish, and from unfortunate to downright scary.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts.

The listing is for the bird’s nest wig, but I find the whole thing equally awful. 

Dear Millennials, No. Love, Me. By Sunnylizard

Maybe you should stop trying to look up that bird girl’s skirt and reconsider what you’re wearing.

Go back inside, Nana! I told you I’m going out with my friends. You can’t come. 

As bad as the current selections are, I couldn't resist including a few from my day, like this bit of sequined derpery. By Braxae

As bad as the current selections are, I couldn’t resist including this bit of sequined derpery from my day. F.Y.I., I would have found it funny then, too.

Dressed in this thing, you are free to spill your drink, drop your chili dog, even throw up on yourself! Who’ll know? Or care?

Club shoes have taken a turn for the weird! By ShoesbyDianaHill

Try as she might, the designer doesn’t seem to be able to get decorative leg braces to catch on with the club kids

I would recommend steering clear of the genius who wears a bath mat to the club. You know after about an hour, he smells like old goat and Axe Body Spray. By SHOKRALA

  4. What a selection! It’s like a bunch of preschoolers were let loose with craft items in a sewing room. So much horribly clashing fugliness. I would never have worn it but I do love that feather mohican. That’s pretty funky. The boss eyed sequined tiger made me laugh too.

  6. Dear Donna, I live in Texas where as of Jan. 1 we can carry our guns into most everywhere – even churches and psychiatric hospitals. Do you have any fashion suggestions for decorative holsters? Perhaps something like “the idiots have left their villages?”

  7. There appears to be a whole lot of DIY in these pictures, and not enough self awareness. Then again; we went clubbing while wearing tons of make-up and jewelry (thank you Madonna) and mile high hair that had been sprayed with an obscene amount of Aqua Net, and of course everyone smoked. It is a wonder that we never caught on fire.
