If there’s one time of year that brings out the creative urge in almost everyone — however deeply buried and infrequently used — it is Halloween. People who wouldn’t touch a glue gun the other 11 months of the year suddenly become obsessive junior seamstresses, aspiring set designers, and amateur creep-out confectioners when October hits; you never know whom you might find huddled over a pile of feathers, sequins, felt and fangs like some kind of macabre magpie. So it’s no shock that Etsy sellers are just as inspired by the holiday. From pet costumes to party props, they’re putting their own bewitching spins on the classics (and even going a few places ghouls have likely never gone before).
