Celebrating the strange, awkward poses and generally misguided choices people make to sell clothes on ebay.

Girls love wearing tutus and wings. Just walking to work today I saw a bunch of little girl fairies and butterflies. So cute. As we get older, tutus and wings get weird and sexual, with the baring of much skin and bizarre interpretations like this blind insect and self-proclaimed 'sailor-devil.'


There is something disturbing about a giant baby in a loincloth. I think she's giving me the stink eye.

Happy Halloween! (Don't Drink and Sell)

I love, love, drunky Halloween pictures. I especially love that these folks chose to post them on ebay to sell the outfit.

Herding Cats

No Halloween is complete without the sexy cat. I offer you ebay's finest self-proclaimed 'sexy cat' costumes. What a range!

Nice Katy Perry Costume -- Or Is It?

Ha ha I love how this cautious AEM blots out her own face and this other mystery woman's (ostensibly Katy Perry). Because we all know how much Katy Perry hates having her image out there.

I've always found The Cat in the Hat a little menacing, and this here proves my point. As it turns out, on closer inspection, that is not a person in there, it's stuffed and being sold as a costume. I guess it's because the hands and arms aren't quite positioned right to have a human inside that makes this super scary.

Sex Repellent

Gents, these costumes guarantee you will not get laid.

Being Sexy Is Hard Work

I've said it over and over again, it's exhausting being sexy. It takes a ton of acting and posing and thinking about how you look. To wit, take The Sexy French Maid costume. Unless you are seriously working it, you appear to be a housecleaner.

Sexy Sheep Herder

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep but found her brew!

It's Not Easy Being Green

Another great couples costume. Although I'm not sure why Kermit is in all black. Or appears to have lost the use of his/her legs.

Assume The Position

Thanks for bringing this leather cop costume to life by demonstrating an arrest. Yes, that's what I'm telling myself, he's demonstrating an arrest.

Ewok on Atkins

Baggy fur. Low energy. Looks like this sad Ewok dropped some pounds fast.

Elf Yourself

I could have. I could have saved this for Christmas. But it is described as a 'Sexy Elf' costume and it's just too gol darn awesome to wait til December. The height of weirdness, this costume offers not a trace of sex, but rather shiver-inducing revulsion. And I'm just talking about the Crocs (I kid).

Aim High

Now, normally, people pick costumes that lift them out of their day to day existences. Perhaps she's always fantasized about standing on her feet for 8 hours and getting milk foam steam facials. Points for not making it Sexy Starbucks Barrista.

I Don't Remember This Scene

Is this the Wizard of Oz: Part Deux where Scarecrow goes on the lam after he's accused of his wife's murder and he must sneak around trying not to get caught in order to solve the crime?

This self-proclaimed DIY number (how did she make this? out of what?) is a shocker. How do you think she answers when people ask 'What are you?'

October Means Halloween!

Perhaps you are aware of my major obsession with Halloween? I just love it. Costumes on ebay are everything from wildly creative to totally bizarre.

More on my love of Halloween

Thought I'd kick off my Halloween coverage with, IMHO, the funniest couples costume I've seen. Wiiiiilllssonnnnnn!

And Is That A Tear Drop Tattoo?

This l'il tough is kind of intimidating! I'm pretty sure she's throwing a Westies gang sign.


Nostril view is not cool. Nothing makes an attractive AEM appear sad and beefy than the shot from below.

Red Nightgown, Just Washed

Just the right nightgown for your next cult baptism!

What The...?

So of course this photo makes total sense when I tell you it's for selling a fake mustache.
