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.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Happy Thanksgiving! (And to the rest of the world, Happy Thursday.)

This week, we’re taking a look at wigs on Etsy. I have always loved wigs, and I wear them whenever I can. Although it’s great fun to have dramatically-colored or –styled hair, wearing a wig is a lot easier on your hair than bleaching and dyeing and gluing and torturing it is. Of course, as wonderful as wigs can be, it’s also really easy for them to go horribly, hilariously wrong, but I still found a lot to be grateful for this week! (Warning: the really good ones tend to cost a small fortune, but they’re totally worth it!)

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

Lady Gaga wore one like it. Sure. But if Lady Gaga jumped off a bridge would you jump, too? Hello? Hey, where'd you go? (Distant splash)

Remember when wrapped gifts were covered in this mess? Happily, that's over, but I guess all that ribbon needed to go somewhere.

She could not look more tragic if she were wearing an actual mop on her head.

Put the hairspray down. Step away from the hairspray.

Ma’am, just put the hairspray down. Good, now step away from the hairspray, hands where I can see them…

Um, no.

Um, no.

  3. Never been a fan of the wig – my mother had a “wiglet” in the 70s. But, you know, as I was looking at those spectacularly wacky ones, I realized I am wishing I could live in their worlds….. Is that wrong?
