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.)
Bestie, Beloved, and our crew are currently casting about for 1. something to do on Halloween, and 2. something to BE for Halloween. We’ve all been so busy this year, we haven’t had any time to think about it, and suddenly, it’s nearing the end of September. Yipe!
If you throw enough money at it, there are some truly spectacular, Hollywood-worthy costumes to be had on Etsy. Last year, in fact, I made a thorough examination of Etsy’s highest-priced costume items. This year, though, I’m on a budget and looking for something to wear!
Some of the costumes I encountered defied description. There were the usual tragedies, some exceptionally beauties, some bad jokes, some good jokes, and some costumes so uncomfortable, I couldn’t even post their pictures.
