Etsom·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.
I had a nutty dream last weekend – a stress dream, really – about hats. I dreamed I was in Fire Island, and I ran into a couple of friends (M&M, of course!) on their way to a party. They scooped me up and took me with them. Unfortunately (for me), they neglected to mention that it was a mad hatter’s party, AND MY HEAD WAS BARE. I know. Terrifying, right? So I spent this idiotic dream hiding from people madly trying to make a hat out of whatever lame items I found. I have to believe that a few of today’s makers may have had the same dream.
I realize that I am a seriously lucky person if all my subconscious has to worry about is being inappropriately costumed at a party. Anyway, it got me thinking about outrageous hats, and thus was born this week’s Etsomnia™ theme! I confess I would wear most of these if the right party came along…
