For the last few years, we've collected galleries of handmade Halloween items found on Etsy, made by craftspeople who celebrate the bizarre and horrific. This year, we've found even more items to spiff up your Halloween party ... or to creep out your friends and family for the other 364 days of the year.
A round of applause for the Etsy creators, whose imaginations have never failed to amaze and/or amuse us.
Note: This gallery of images is ordered from smile-worthy to stomach-churning, so brace yourself as you progress.
