30 Halloween finds from Etsy, ranked from fun to frightening

Contributed by

Halloween is a time for a fascinating variety of fun and frights. The talented artisans found on Etsy -- the internet's expansive clearinghouse of handcrafted goods -- recognize this, and they're ready to serve you a healthy dose of both. I found 30 intriguing items on Etsy that will seriously spice up your annual holiday party and/or costume, ranking them in order of their fear factor. While the first half of these costumes and home decorations leans more toward the sweetly spooky, the second half is genuinely unsettling. You've been warned. Shop if you dare.

Note: Order now to avoid the Halloween rush!

This is, without a doubt, one of the coolest wedding cake toppers I’ve ever seen. Honey, time for a Halloween renewal of vows.

Another awesome Halloween wedding cake topper. Or for those of us who think Halloween is a romantic holiday. (It is.)

Only wear this mask if you plan on remaining single.

Unsettling corpse cat is unsettling.

Oh gods, how did this Etsy-er get the teeth for this mask?!

This headless costume will frighten your family but impress hard-core horror friends.

It’s called a “lifesize torture torso.” I’m very happy that this Etsy-er is channeling their dark impulses into their art. And not their reality.
