Moist Mother Earth, a Demented $8,000 Tribute to the Planet

Moist Mother Earth is an homage to the planet that will haunt your dreams. Etsy has brought the Internet all kinds of original, creative and one-of-a-kind treasures. It has also brought us this.

The proper reaction to this $8,000 crafty tribute is: “Um, what:?” The Moist Mother Earth dress is a farrago of Victorian-style fashion, found material foraging and showcases a homemade design.

Implications - Moist Mother Earth is described on the Etsy site as a "creative melding of Elizabethan clothing, rotting mushrooms, abstracted human body organs, leaves and other botanical forms." The top part of the dress is made from vintage corduroy and was inspired by the trunks of trees.
