Here’s One For Regretsy: Teeth Soap!

Remember when we told you about Regretsy, the site where, much like the Island of Misfit Toys, dubious crafts go to live amongst their handicapped brethren? Here’s a new one to join their ranks: Etsy seller DirtyAssSoaps created this peppermint-scented soap made out of a “beat up” vintage dental cast she acquired. And no worries,…

Make Your Bed Date Rape-Friendly!

I thought the ickiest things being sold on Etsy were those custom-made vagina portrait necklaces, but I was wrong. Now date rapists can get down to business in comfort and style with one of these super-snuggly Rohypnol pillows, from Etsy retailer GalacticBoutique! But, the seller warns, the pillows are not for consumption, as “they do…

Monster Prom Dress

This monster of a prom dress was found on Regretsy, the site where “bad crafts thrive,” but I’d hardly call this wonder bad. In fact, had I found a dress like this when I was in high school, I might have considered attending my prom. Then again, hot pink isn’t really my color. [via BuzzFeed]…

Custom Dresses: A Fitting Option For Brides?

OK, so level with me here: What are your thoughts on custom dresses? What about custom wedding dresses? I’m 99.9 percent positive that I’m going to get a custom wedding dress, and before you call me fancy-shmancy, it isn’t a made-for-me Vera Wang or custom Oscar de la Renta. Even better, as far as I’m…

Etsy Find Of The Week: Another Feather Jewelry

Combining nature and sentimental objects, we’re loving the raw aesthetic Etsy seller Another Feather channels through jewelry made of rocks, feathers, and trinkets. The designer reminds us that sometimes things that aren’t supposed to be pretty come off as more interesting—like a teeny glass jar containing a tooth and a bone hung on a leather…

Not Cool: Felt Beards On Etsy

Here’s a good potential Regretsy candidate—pointless beards made of felt by Etsy seller I Made You A Beard. Please tell us people would not a) pay $75 for one, and b) wear it in public. Or am I being terribly unfair here? [Etsy.com]…

This Is Not A Flower Necklace

VulvaLoveLovely is an Etsy retailer which sells custom-made vaginal portrait jewelry. Simply send a photo of your vag and the artist will make a lifelike replica of it, dangling from a chain! The point is to encourage women to celebrate their vulvas and stuff, which is nice, but VulvaLoveLovely isn’t satisfied with just a photo…

Etsy Find Of The Week: TsuroBride Orwell Clutches

Most of the handbags we own are pretty utilitarian, meaning they blend in with most of our clothes and can hold our everyday essentials: keys, wallet, iPod, phone, lip balm, magazine, camera, apple, and work ID. In short, we lug around our life. So, the few times we get all gussied up, we either have…

Etsy Find Of The Week: Jibri Clothing

Indie fashion, we love you, but we get it—most of the time you’re made for the ladies small enough to go braless, not for curvy ones. That’s where Jibri steps in, a line tailored for sizes 14-24, replete with that independent sensibility you see all over Etsy. Some of the dresses take vintage inspiration with…

Etsy Find Of The Week: Vampire Love Bite Necklace

There’s nothing sexy about sporting a hickey, but a little vampire love bite peeking out from beneath the flip of your long, tousled hair? Um, yes. If you want to give everyone the idea you scored a date with one of the hotties from “True Blood” — and that things went well — this vampire
