Five Favorite Etsy Stores- Commitedly Creepy Halloween Stuff

by - Sunday, October 09, 2016

I want to keep highlighting amazing makers in the US, and I feel like my Etsy links can get caught in the more mainstream shuffle. So starting a series to focus on the greatest stuff we have found. 

I don't love creepiness in general, but these items are pretty fun in their skeeviness.


deer head halloween costume geometric and creepy
from Wintercroft
Wintercroft is based in the UK, but they are selling printables, so I don't feel like it is way off base. Plus, their masks are super creepy. SUPER creepy. So clearly, a goal has been reached, if your goal is to look like the 2097 remake of Donnie Darko. Looking for other skeevy masks? Check out Magic FX.

recycled snake decoration
from Attic Studio WV
Attic Studio WV makes a whole host of things, but my favorite (and the creepiest) might be this snake made of recycled bottle caps. Way to be eco-friendly and kind of scary at the same time! Most eco-friendly horror is pictures of landfills and such.

used vintage halloween decorations
from The Wicked Pumpkin
The Wicked Pumpkin sells a host of vintage Halloween stuff. You know what is consistently pretty creepy? Old Halloween decorations. It's just weird enough to be uncanny/ look like it might come to life. Don't believe me? Poke around this store. There is an easter bunny on there I am having waking nightmares about. Want more creepy vintage decorations? Try Rat3333.

creepy photography for halloween on etsy
from Frighten
Some of the scariest decorations you can find are in art, especially photography. Photography as a medium has always been closely connected to death (have you seen early death portraits? Mumler ghost photographs? Photography takes something living and makes it still. It is literally death and capture). So put in Halloween photographs, and you can see all sorts of oddness, Case and point? Frighten (New Jersey).

etsy spider web decoration for halloween
from The Dusty Raven
The Dusty Raven doesn't have the scariest stuff, but it certainly is high impact/ tougher than most of what you would hang in your house. Plus, the spiderwebs look really cool. For outdoors and indoor decorating too (I like the ones for window frames). Had to share,

On a side note, creepy dolls could make their own post. Who knew, but Etsy has more creepy dolls on it than anyone could ever ever need. Ever. Try Peculiarly Prim or AMTs Handmade Crafts.
