It’s Time To Cry: Wife Of Dying “Dr. Who” Fan Seeks TARDIS Urn

“Dr. Who” fans can be an ardent and kooky bunch, even to the grave. So, too, is Kevin “Wash” Pratt, 27, of Arizona, who has been battling an aggressive brain tumor and likely won’t live much longer. In a bizarre yet lovely appeal, his wife and full-time caregiver Tashi King, 25, is asking sci fi-loving…

Monster Portraits Do Good

When 5-year-old Aidan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia this past September he didn’t freak out. Instead, he found solace in one of his favorite activities: drawing monsters. And now those monster pictures are being put to good use; they’re for sale on a special Etsy shop. And money from the sale of his monster…

Lady Gaga Likes To Eat Unicorn Meat

What’s for lunch? Unicorn meat! If you’re Lady Gaga, that is. Artist Rose Briccetti created this truly riveting oil painting of Lady Gaga munching on a unicorn carcass, a work of art that was commissioned by Regretsy user Helen Killer, who paid $350 for it. What a wondrous horror. [Boing Boing]…

Jeans For The Less Traditional Bride

Finally, I’ve found something to wear to my wedding! Amazingly, this stunning vision in denim–called “Chandelier Crystal Feather rosebud jeans” and filed in Etsy’s Bridal section–has not landed on the hallowed pages of Regretsy, yet. Thanks to BuzzFeed, they are making the internet rounds today though, and after checking out the deets on the original

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]…

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]…

Regretsy, Where Bad Crafts Go To Thrive

Here at The Frisky, we’re pretty big Etsy fans. We have a soft spot for all those darling creations and a major appreciation for the type of crafty folks out there who actually take the time to make goods by hand. But sometimes we’re cruisin’ through the site and suddenly come across these sort of…
