The Beauty Parlour is for women or not-women in the sphere of cosplay and the beauty industry that is not strictly limited to lolcows.

  • Hide your powerlevel. Avoid revealing intimate, embarrassing details about yourself. Declaring a post powerleveling does not magically exempt you from this rule.
  • No thirst. No one cares if you want to have sex with someone. Reporting thirst posts to mods is encouraged.
  • Be civil. Don't get angry over Lolcows. If you need to tell people you're better than someone, you're probably not.
  • No trolling plans. We are not an autistic Illuminati. Failtrolls will be ridiculed mercilessly.
  1. My favorite part of regretsy was the terrible steampunk junk that was posted. As a lover of Jules Verne and as an occasional Victorian clothing collector and costumer it always made me laugh. Especially paired with this song that (was inspired by and...) I first heard on April's site.

    I know it's not periods and Putin paraphernalia levels of dumb but these are all labeled "steampunk"

    as an amature tintype photography, this is just strange il_570xN.847175746_ljwr.jpg I also have several Waltham pocket watches, so this is another sticking point...I hate shitty cheap faux pocket watches.

    If anything they're kind of unsexy considering the serrated edge and what chestbursters do.

  13. Don't you just hate it when you feel that dreaded itch down below, or when your hooker of the moment inspects you and shakes her head and the grim realisation hits you: no sex for you today, because you've got an STD?

    Worry no longer!

    STDs shouldn't fill you with shame or... regret. Indeed, Etsy teaches us that there's no need to worry when you get a down below disease, in fact Etsy says we should proudly tout our achievement (after all, STDs mean you got laid) and should capture it for posterity.

    You can now mark the arrival of your special status with a charming cross-stitch of the hitchhiker in question. Such as, say, Syphilis:

    https://img0.etsystatic.com/007/1/6648634/il_875xN.389785796_agx5.jpg

    Or if you've had a REALLY big night out (or just want to be prepared) you can get ALL THE STDS in one handy pdf file:

    https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/151558981/instant-collection-of-stds-5-std?ref=shop_home_active_28

    https://img1.etsystatic.com/009/0/6648634/il_875xN.460563953_9os6.jpg

    Since STDs are no longer taboo, don't hesitate to needlessly bring them into the conversation! Show your friends you remembered them on their special day with this pdf of a birthday card that features a joke with a punchline you won't know until you've bought the pdf for yourself!

    Perhaps not as horrifying as all the vagina related items and vaugely dangerous dildos but the price of this is quite horrifying
    For only 47 Canadian dollars, you or your child could get a badly made soft toy of a sexually designed chicken

  16. Does the creator actually expect someone to buy that for $47 CAD?

    That doesn't look worth $15, not to mention $47

    Someone really should do a scientific study into Dunning-Kruger effect in regards to handmade crafts and shit on Etsy. Why is it that such terrible crap gets priced so high?

  17. It has to do with artist compensation gone awry.
    It's 50-50 whether or not people realize that stuff created by an individual will cost more than a mass produced item. On one hand, you get the people who are like "well, I can buy X from Wal-Mart for $5, why are you charging so much?" because these assholes don't realize that when something is handmade the creator takes much more time and effort to make it than a machine, and that the creator can't mass produce items, meaning that they can't buy materials in bulk and have to pay more for the materials. This results in sometimes comically increased prices, but it's necessary for the creator to do so in order to make a semi-decent profit; this is why commissions tend to cost a lot. There has also been a lot of discussion regarding how artists/creators should be compensated, especially on sites like Tumblr, which eventually led to the creation of sites like Patreon as a way to sort of circumvent the losses of individualized work. It's effectively the halfway point between living from project-to-project and having a steady income for your work, which works for some people. However, people just starting out and people who do this kind of work as a 'side thing' don't have that level of pre-interest to work with, hence why things like Etsy and commission work stay.

    This is combined with the attitude of some new/unprofessional/unknown creators-especially lazy ones-who don't realize that there's a limit to what people will pay for something, and that a person has to want something quite a bit to pay money for it. This GENERALLY translates to making a better or higher-quality product, or a more unique, interesting one; but people are lazy, and expect to make cash on their lazy or just unprofessional work 'because I worked hard on it! It's handmade!'

    TL;DR: entitlement.
