Dr. Who TARDIS urn photo

“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 crafters on Regretsy.com if anyone can fashion him a TARDIS urn. TARDIS, as “Dr. Who” fans know, is the time machine based on a 1960s-era police box through which the Doctor travels on all his adventures. Keep reading »

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 monsters will go to help fund his treatment. The funds are especially necessary since Aidan regularly endures painful rounds of chemotherapy and antibiotics to fight the disease, and hospital costs are unbelievably expensive. Aidan’s plight has inspired others to get in on the giving act: Regretsy has chipped in by auctioning off a selection of handmade scary knitted hats. You can check up on Aidan’s treatment and progress on his family’s website and see just where your monster money is going. [Aid For Aidan] Keep reading »

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] Keep reading »

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 listing, we were almost as shocked by the totally fair price of $925.00 (!) as we were by the full-scale version of the jeans in all their glitzy glory as seen on the model, after the jump!

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, animal lovers: they’re totes vegan! Actually, on second thought, we take it back. This craft project kind of rules. [Etsy] Keep reading »

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 not contain the necessary mood stablizing [sic] goodness found in controlled substances.” No matter. We’re sure she won’t care — when she wakes up. [Regretsy] Keep reading »
