The fuck? When did Lady Gaga get an Etsy? That bitch is so fucking desperate for attention.
I’m pretty sure that’s Courtney Love. We have Alchemical proof that she hangs around Etsy.
That said, at a guess, Love probably thought she was posting this pic to a dating service.
Clearly is Courtney Love. I shoulda known. If it were Gaga there’d be giant plastic dicks all over that purse. And cat ears. And triangles.
And she’d be way more naked, even if she was still wearing clothes. Gaga just has that knack.
The giant plastic dicks would be arranged on the purse in a manner suggestive of Illuminati symbolism, too. You know. Just to fuck with everyone.
Ironic Illuminati Fuckery. That just SMACKS of Gaga.
Not to mention she killed a cat with her etsy hoard.
Is it wrong that I think she’s a lot more attractive than the roofie girl?
When I say “attractive” in this context, I don’t mean I’d like to have deep, meaningful conversations and get to know her better.
The thought of Courtney Love with an OKCupid profile makes me shudder.
Looks like she is vomiting gold lame.
I thought it was supposed to be Courtney love.
It is Courtney Love. Can’t fake that mess.
I thought she looked more like Courtney Love.
Looks like Courtney Love to me.
Courtney Love was a customer of hers, boudoirqueen has mentioned repeatedly in the past all the famous people she sold to such as Courtney Love and others in the description area on her etsy listing, but I think Boudoirqueen sued her
Here are some articles about it. Courtney didn’t want to pay for clothes and said some stuff on twitter about BQ.
Now THIS should have been posted in etsy’s “Quit Your Day Job”!
Oh my lawd. This is THAT thing??? I really need to brush up on my Courtney Love knowledge. She’s damn near legendary round these here parts.
Did anyone else experience unbridled rage after reading the part of the article that refers to Courtney as “The First Lady of Nirvana”?
Well, yes, I suppose it does work, metaphorically, BUT COME ON.
Reading the court filing, holy crap. O_o
i wonder how crazy the ‘designer’ is that if one image-googles her name the only photos that show up are of courtney love?
you know, i dunno, the ‘designer’ [who is really limited, um, at best talentwise] does not seem a whole lot less inculpable [is that a word?] than her subject, there. it comes down 50/50 i think on whether the sue-er is or is not a coke dealer [as claimeth the sue-ee]. & since the sue-er apparently not only won over $400,000 but also, apparently, the right to use images of the sue-ee in her listings, i dont think we need feel so sad in her case.
also–& i cant imagine this will mean anything to anyone other than yr tired correspondent–but someone whose using modeling for the late & truly great [if forgotten] steven arnold at this insanely late date as a way to prop herself up is, oh i dunno, a proper person for either side of the lawsuit, i guess.
If I ever sold anything to Courtney Love, I wouldn’t tell a soul, much less publicize it.
Courtney can know, of course, because she has no soul.
Time for som Regretsy Math…
It’s a silent e, people!
I’m glad that Regretsy Math is like a Venn diagram, where a little of just about everything brings a surprise of a mess.
[That is: a + b + c + ... + x + y + z = WALLA!!!]
Otherwise, how in the world can you subtract, multiply, or divide something and end up with the same mess?
Wait, there’s a PURSE in that photo?
There is, but I think it’s just under that drunk carny.
“one of a guy skirt”?
Probably takes the whole lot of liquor for a guy to wear this…
Enough to make a coffee table from the empties.
Just gotta say, love your avatar/screen name!
Probably took a whol lot of booze to make it.
I’m gonna give that one a pass, because of the booze in the background. They could be a closet FJL.
That depends on your geographical location.
Don’t type and dirnk.
A high wasted guy, at that.
Well..at least the cupcake skirt has an explanation..they were clearly drunk.
Nothing says alcohol abuse like adult sized cupcake skirts.
Alcohol abuse, or Japan.
Damn. That actually makes a lot of sense. Except in Japan it totes would be a dude wearing it…with a Hello Kitty backpack. “One of a guy…”
I think the “magic” in the Indian fabric one is not from the dress, but from opium.
I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought that girl looked high as a kite.
That expression can also indicate that you hate your parents with the fiery intensity of 1,000 suns.
If you wore that, you parents would hate YOU with the fiery intensity of 1,000 of those dresses.
My mom would be proud, but that’s only because I’m a boy and it would give her a solid lead in the permanently running ‘Most Progressive Parent Contest’ at her Episcopal church.
For the lady in the pic I was thinking more along the lines of “If you want to sell this goddamn thing on Etsy you model it, and quick fixing my hair.”
Oh yeah, I’m seeing “teen with a ‘tude” as well.
“Is she using a nit comb on that poor child?” – this was what I thought.
If my hazy memory of adolescence serves me right, that look comes from being high and wasted BECAUSE you hate your parents with the fiery intensity of 1,00 suns.
I don’t think they’re mutually exclusive.
Having perused the rest of the product photos in that shop, I’m assuming that the photographer was also wasted, and/or visually impaired.
If you are trying to sell something, at least make sure the photos are the right way up and your model has a head.
The only “magic” from that optical dress I see is that she looks very pregnant in it. Or maybe she is, indeed, pregnant, in which case it’s a lot more than optical illusion and she needs to start wearing a lot longer dress.
Is that Spongebob with his pants pulled down and his legs crossed like he’s doing the peepee dance? White chocolate indeed!
Thought he looked more like ” cute Japanese schoolgirl “.
I think he looks like Hitler, personally…
I swear, the first thing I thought was that he’d somehow pulled (or had pulled for him) his underwear down through his pants.
I suspect that ‘pop’ was made from a Wilton kit, which is more horrifying than the clear jelly ones, and doubly so given the fact that a stranger has touched them in a kitchen of unknown condition. I don’t care if it’s a sample – show me that you at least wrap the goddamn things!
It’s awesome that Courtney Love has found some meaningful work.
Nothing sells a dress like Steve Buscemi eyes…
Gloria Swanson? More like Courtney Love.
Neither one is ready for a close-up.
She wants her dignity back, Mr. Demille!
Why is that angry teenage girl trying to show me her crotch? Is that the optical magic?
I want to know why she is being groomed with a delousing comb in the second picture.
Lice are going around the 8th grade.
I like the fact that the “optical magic” happens when “a lady moves” yet no lady is going to be flashing her bajino, and it does not appear that girl is capable of moving anything but her eyelids (barely).
I feel comforted that #1 was probably shit faced on the content of those bottles while she was making that skirt.
I feel like the booze actually makes me more inclined to buy from them. Supporting kindred spirits and all that.
Hurr hurr hurr pun not intended.
You should have intended it. Or left it alone. We like puns, bad or otherwise.
I think I know the dark-fairy-goddess-upcycled-elf-couture-hat chick.
Well, tell her she forgot ‘steampunk’ as a keyword. WTF.
Brave soul. I’m not sure I’d be willing to admit that.
These are glorious.
The last picture just makes me think of Mischa Barton’s role in “Sixth Sense”. I expect her to vomit soup at any moment. They’re selling a BAG? That’s right next to vomit-ghost’s MOUTH?
Who let Courtney Love out of her cage?
GOD. BLESS. AMERICA. This is nightmare fodder.
Not nightmare–bafflement. Exactly what is on sale here???
I hope it’s the shoes. I really kinda like them.
Can you sell emotional distress?
I’s becoming increasingly clear why her daughter wants nothing to do with her. Would you want to bring your friends home and introduce this woman as your mother?
BACK!! PUT IT BACK IN ITS CAGE!! Please…*hysterical sobbing*
In my dreams I am that classy.
It looks like she pulled it from her craft hoarding loins.
Available in black or CROTCH-ET.
It IS Courtney Love – does she puke in the purse or something to make it worth $500?
Puke? Do you see how close it was to her crotch? It was probably in there before she threw it all together.
I still bet chunks are involved.
I just threw up in my mouth…
More chunks, the merrier.
the handle is hooked to her “umbilical noose” ….
Boy, that takes me back to prom night….
You cruised for heroin hags in back alleys on prom night?
I went to a high school located about a block from CBGBs. You do the math.
i first read that as “porn” night
Every night is porn night around these parts.
Geezus. It is her.
Make it go away! Make it go away!
Once you go “Joker”, you never go back.
“Can’t sleep. Clowns will eat me. Can’t sleep. Clowns will eat me. Can’t sleep. Clowns will eat me. Can’t sleep. Clowns will eat me.”
I can’t decided if it’s clown’s eating me or yelling that I need an adult…
Look at that purse: It is. Doll parts.
You guys. That dress is going to be available in sea foam and red flannel, too. SOLD.
That dude is really scary.
I can’t tell you how truly terrified I was to continue scrolling past this picture when I got to her elbows. I actually froze and thought about whether or not I actually wanted to get to the other comments!
I’d hit it.
Then I’d take a nice warm penicillin bath.
Just so I’m clear…that purse is sold in black or crochet, but not the gold lame as shown? But it’s only this classy if it’s metallic!
I didn’t want to believe it was really Courtney Love..this is just too creepy even for her. Due to my internet searching, the ankle tattoo matches. It IS her, WTF!?
Holy fuck, you are correct. I just did that same search and it wasn’t pretty.
and this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/21746726/the-boudoir-queen-turban-by-boudoir
BQ had a tiff with her in the past. But these might be old photos of her she’s using. Saw some photos of Love online and she had some tattoos on her upper right arm also. Could she be using them to save money on new photos or just for spite?? Though a lot of her models are pastie faced, skinny and try to look like this. But like someone said it just comes natural to Courtney.
Pretty sure it’s a sign when someone like Courtney Love can model your product.
If it takes a cracked whore junky to model your products…you may want to rethink things.
This is worthy of a Silkwood Scrubdown.
yet another phrase I’m afraid to google
Don’t be scared, the movie was only rated R.
That gals brain is a bag of cats. You can smell the crazy!
Ronald McDonald’s sister became a crack whore, it seems.
Laughing… too hard… to click… thumbs up!
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
How sweet, the Joker finally found a girlfriend.
can’t be Courtney. The model is COVERING her vag
That poor bastard with the cat quilt is obviously contemplating just smothering the photographer with the blanket and going on the lam before joining a traveling circus as the bearded woman with fake tits. It would be far less humiliating.
So true. BUT THE QUILT IS MADE OF AWESOME.
I know, I totally love the quilt.
I believe Mr. #6 there is demonstrating his hand-made Jiggle-Puff custom, and his willingness to take it into the forests. The Legend of Zelda continues!
I considered buying it-but it is gone.
I call “hand check!”
Photographer: “Yeah, sure, we’ll crop you out of the photo before we put it up on etsy. Don’t worry.”
I, too, think the quilt is really creative, and somehow the Surly Teen(tm) peeking over the edge only makes me more inclined to consider buying one, if they come in different colors.
“Cat Quilts: made from your little child’s love and dreams; fueled by your older children’s scorn and embarrassment.”
Yes, because only a drunk gosurori cross dresser would wear that skirt. The quilt, actually “sort of” cute, shame she had her teen brother holding it. And it’s a shame that someone so miserable is displaying that Indian fabric dress. Because that face? Not magical. The rest, need to just not take pictures and hire someone at least marginally competent. And what’s with that hunk of yellow constipation?
Don’t tell me – the last one is Alex’s prom date from “A Clockwork Orange”. Assuming he went to prom.
This shit: http://www.etsy.com/listing/38416350/wedgewood-china?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=wedgewood&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_order=price_desc&ga_page=0&ga_search_type=vintage
Not a single decent picture, you want nearly 2k, AND you can’t be buggered to actually PROVE that you have 12 place settings?
Although, the dress made out of sari fabric seems cute, even if short. Too bad there’s no decent pics I could be swayed by.
Agreed. I have a fantastic set of Mikasa that I haven’t listed for the simple reason that I am too lazy to do a formal table spread right now. When you list something like that, class it up for crying out loud!!
Not only that, but just because you saw a couple pieces on Replacements, Ltd. that cost $100 does not mean you can charge that amount for a set. Is that pattern even discontinued? Even if it is, there are Wedgwood outlets that sell the discontinued patterns for dirt cheap, comparatively.
Wait, just wait…. shipping by customer?!?! What the bloody hell does that mean??
“Wait, just wait…. shipping by customer?!?! What the bloody hell does that mean??”
It means that she can take it to the PO, weigh it, and come back with nearly any amount she wants as opposed to setting a fixed amount for shipping and taking it in the ass like the rest of us do.
And yes on the rest of what you said. Hell, I got my set at a thrift, $5 for a service for 12, according to Replacements tho, each setting is around $60. I ain’t gonna get that..
And that’s why I invested in a nice scale, so I can figure out shipping beforehand and not take it in the ass more than once. (Flat rate parcels? Aren’t a flat rate out of country. I am a dumbass.)
If she tries to gouge for postage, I’d suggest complaining to Paypal with a screenshot of where she specifically says “shipping: $0.20 USD”.
Can’t spell the manufacturer’s name right, either. Despite the fact that it’s SPELLED OUT in the second pic.
That always makes me laugh. “Oh hell, how do you spell the name of this widget/brand of widget? If only it was written down, or displayed clearly someplace… ah fuckit, I’ll make it up…”
When she describes the “tye dye” thingie as “suttle”, does she mean subtle?
I CALL DIBS ON “SUTTLE”!
OK, but I get a “verity of mediums”.
‘Optical magic’. Is that what the kids are calling it these days?
Isn’t that a brand of Bath Salts?
Pink Kitty guy is straight out of this episode.
Holy shit that’s so fucking hilarious. I love that.
I don’t usually bust out laughing here at work, but I fucking did. I can’t stand it, I’m laughing so hard.
I ordered some aluminum cuffs for crafting from a company once – and they really DID put several pieces of some orange shaped orange candy in the box – LOL – as if someone would eat them?? It was creeptastic
Jigglypuff loves Zelda, then I think it goes all free-form and everyone loves whoever ends up in reach.
Waiting for Chris Hansen to pop out from behind a tree…
Is it just me or does that lollipop look SCRUMPTIOUS? That photo really captures the “YUM” factor.
I’m still trying to figure out why that last item would take 4 weeks to make, and how “either black or crochet” is a choice. It’s too suspenseful. A BLACK WHAT? A CROCHETED WHAT???
I need more wine.
I think she meant “Crotch”. As in “You could buy one that’s been in my crotch”.
She’s got a tour schedule to meet. Don’t be hatin’
It’ll take her that long to be sober enough to make the purse.
I must admit that I love the suttle-ness of the dissociative identity disorder involved in the rocker earth dark fairy goddess boho upcycled patchwork elf coture jacket.
The “avoid eye contact” quality appears to lie somewhere on the Aspberger’s spectrum, for sure.
Gasp! Please promise to write ad copy for me when I’m rich enough to pay for it. I’d have to ingest so much mellowing agent that I’d be too unconscious to write anything at all long before I got to whatever that is you just said.
She’s dressed and on her way to the hospital lounge for the 2 to 3 pm ice cream social and bingo session.
I thought “Gloria Swanson” actually looked more like Stevie Nicks.
It looks like they had to get “Vintage Silk Mini Dress” girl drunk and/or high before they could convince her to wear the dress for the photos.
Well, the Karkov in photo #1 just confirms what we all think about “one of a guy” items. But WTF did the disenfranchised kid holding up the very puffy comforter in the woods do to his mother that this photo was the punishment? Comparing his bedroom/meth lab eyes with the optical illusion upskirt emo girl, I think we’ve got a match made in heaven. Or the basement of a Shell station.
Get that clown out of here before she pukes on the carpet!!!
Have you noticed the item description on the Gloria Swanson/Courtney Love purse thingy? I’m sensing some butthurt in the form of a cease and desist letter due to misunderstanding of copyright and fair use. Which are always fun read.
There’s also a website mentioned there. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it appears that the seller is directing people to a different website to purchase items. If that’s true, then isn’t that against Etsy TOU?
Does the derp come with that dress?
Can you change the size of the derp? Does it come in black or crochet? And does the customer have to pay for shipping?
Ha! Gaga wishes she was Courtney love, Courtney naturally looks that freaky and fucked up, Gaga pays through the nose for the shock value Courtney falls into naturally!
Courtney’s natural fuck-up-edness is both glorious and…sad…very sad.
Luminous Metamorphose looks a hell of a lot better here than it does IN focus.
Elf couture just ain’t what it used to be.
“Budior Queen” had too much of the “veriety” of liquors featured in “Cupcake Skirt’s” bedroom! “Vintage Silk Minidress” model could no longer stand upright! Notice the painful look on her face in pic #1
“Thanks for making my shield, Mom. Please don’t make a suit of armor to go with it.”
Has she landed in a heap after being booted out of the elevator, or is she creeping lizard-like toward it? I’m so confused. Must be the suttle effects of the dark fairy sparkle dust.
I want that cupcake skirt seller to be Etsy’s featured seller.
“what inspires you to create your work?”
Hops & barley?
gosh, love the booze in cupcake skirt picture, wanna have a party?
I know you’re proud of your horrifying zombie makeup luv, but ‘ow about you actually show us the bleedin’ bag you’re selling?!
And the questionable stains on that carpet (probably both ‘carpets’, judging by the crack-whore vibe of the outfit)
We’re just lucky SHE’S not the bleeding bag that’s for sale.
You know if you got the dress with the cupcake skirt to wear underneath, the faerie/boho jacket for evening and the Swanson Purse, you’d have an entire one of a guy ensemble. I think Helen was trying to put together a helpful collection.
I smell Treasury!!!
I had always thought Courtney Love would be on Etsy as up-cycled trash. Not modeling it.
Jegus. If the skirt is that “SHORT”, maybe don’t have your two-year-old niece take the fucking picture, hm?
(I see you’re stoned off your goddamn hippie ass, so I’ll give that some time to sink in.)
What is in the bottom LH corner of the “Vintage silk mini dress – Indian fabric” photo? Is it someone’s knee? Not that it took away from the sad strung out look of Little Miss Thirteen-starring-Evan-Rachel-Wood, but I’m totally distracted by trying to figure this out.
that was my question. If you really wanted to sell the dress, 1) don’t give your models heroine right before the shoot, and 2) completely crop out the stage mom who’s just sitting idly by while her stoned daughter gets upskirted for internet sales.
*gasps* It’s Pedobear! RUN! RUN RUN AWAY!
Dammit, why did the elf girl take her item down? I wanted to see if she had any decent pictures, it actually looks interesting.
This is my sister actually. Her husband takes shit pictures with a very old, very crap camera and she’s very shy, that’s why she’s hiding. She’s also dyslexic (obviously) and never takes the time to spell check…makes me fucking crazy to try and read her emails. As for the wackadoo word combos, that’s how we’ve been doing it for years on Ebay to try and get as many hits as possible.
All that being said, she makes the most amazing ooak clothing and sells it really well at belly dance shows. One of the earlier comments mentioned scraps and dish towels but what she really does is buy thrift store clothing by the boat load, launder it all and then match pieces up and reconstruct them with her serger. I’d rather wear her stuff any day than buy cookie cutter China junk from Wal-mart or resellers.
For some reason, the guy with the kitty quilt made me laugh until I cried. It seems to be protecting him from an evil spell or something, BUT he’s really unhappy about it. Why?
Girlfriend made him do it. She promised oral sex, but she’ll never deliver.
Because the “kitten” looks like Pedobear’s cousin?
I’m not sure what “elf couture” is, but I doubt it includes a table cloth thrown over ones head.
I can accept that Courtney is a trainwreck, but holy god that floor she’s lying on is SO FILTHY. Granted, she’s probably so high she doesn’t care, but where the hell did they shoot this? The lobby of her dealer’s building? Ugh.
Not sure if anything can be dark fair, goddess, and boho all at once but, IF it can, it is not made of remnants of $6.00/yd fleece and a spare dishtowel.
Is it just me or does she kind of look like the Etsy version of the guy from Assassin’s Creed? I’m strangely in love.
oh hell – dark fairy
Etsy needs a colonic irrigation
perhaps if shit like this was flushed out, actual artists trying to make a living could get some friggin sales
‘Boudoir’ doesn’t mean ‘Hallway’. ‘Queen’ doesn’t mean ‘Falling-down drunk’.
And even with that, the psycho teen in the woods is the scariest!
ALL of these sellers were drunk when these items were made/photographed/listed. And I use the term “item” loosely.
I’d feel a little weird eating Spongebob Shartpants. Those empty eyes- well, one of those empty eyes- staring deep into my soul…those almost obscenely red lips…whatever the fuck is growing in his philtrum…I’m not okay with any of this.
The bottom picture is why I hated living in apartments. The landlord always said that they would spray for cockroaches, but every month they seemed to get bigger and bigger.
what in six thousand muppetfucks is elf couture?
Aw… I was going to buy that skirt.
Too bad the seller took it down.
Does anyone know the seller of the kitty quilt? The picture is funny but the quilt is pretty cute for a kid and I wanted to look at more of their stuff!
I can’t get over Courtney’s ability to make anything she wears look trashy – maybe the hall carpet is clean, the walls recently painted and the woodwork polished: it’s the Courtney effect making it look so sleazy. The doll faces on that bag could be 14th Century genuine Carnival masks and they’d look like cheap death masks with her holding the purse. This woman gives junkies a bad name.
I want that cat quilt.
Could this be it?!
Shame the seller has taken it down – she could shift a few.
Agree that the photo of disgruntled teenage son holding quilt is a delight & would encourage me to buy, rather than the reverse.
If he ducked his head etc… down behind it would also make a tremendous image.
