Feature of features! Url, aka Fish in a Squirrel Suit, takes the interwebs by storm

It all started on dark and stormy night (ok I don't really know the weather on Url's birthday but it sounds good) when SlightlyCurious created Url, aka Fish in a Squirrel Suit.

Here on the Etsy Dark Team we love him, of course, from his glassy round eyes, to his road rash & squirrely toes but not so much everywhere. Our fishy, furry little friend made not one but two appearances on LiveJournal's Ugly Crap Community and recently wriggled up on Regretsy. But this is where even "bad" publicity turns into good publicity! Regretsy alone has brought 1400 9600!! views to SlightlyCurious' Etsy shop plus Url now has his own song, and has a mention on the Wall Street Journal (as the "Fish in a Squirrel Suit"). The friggin' Wall Street Journal! Yeah, I'm jealous ;)

Here is Url's song:

singing to lauren, although she doesn't know it yet. on

And here is our beloved Url posing for the camera:

Can you boast 15+ Google search pages for your creation? I'm not joking, search "fish in a squirrel suit" for yourself. I know I wish I could boast that! Url's got my vote to be the Etsy Dark Team's mascot.

L♥ve y♥u, Url! ~Static

Two Awesome Events This Weekend!!!

The month of October is FULL of awesome events.  Like these two below that include members of our beloved Dark Team!  If you're near either one of these areas, you'd be a ghoul, I mean a fool not to attend!

The first event is called Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend in Orlando, Florida.  Holy CRAP!  This is a little bit of heaven on earth!  Events, vendors, and TONS OF HORROR FILM PEOPLE!  EDT's own Paige of The Graveyard Girls (visit her Etsy store HERE) will be there vending her awesome tiny top hats and MORE!  Check out the cute pic of her

The next event is Monsterfest in Chesapeake, Virgina.  YES!  More HORROR!  EDT's Silent Orchid Studio will be there with plushies (and other items) looking for new homes.  Check out the pic below for one of my favorites.

Team Swap: &


Last month I participated in an Etsy Dark Side swap and was partnered up to do a trade with Static White. As soon as I saw who my partner was, I knew that whatever I was getting would be absolutely amazing! I've bought from Static in the past (pictured below) and her work is always flawless! I made her a custom bat choker and I got a lucky cat pin. Communication was always perfect and Maya is such an absolute pleasure to work with! I got my package really quickly and I love my new cat pin so much, he is the cutest little thing ever!

Thank you so much Maya for making this swap so perfect! I really loved trading with you!! :)
Also be sure to check out her Etsy shop. You'll be glad you did!
