14 Sad Boyfriends Tricked Into Modeling for Etsy

Because love means wearing an ugly crochet hat and sharing it with the world

Move over, Mason jars and washi tape! Boyfriends are now Etsy's ultimate crafting accessory. They might not always love modeling floral homemade cardigans (read: never), but where there’s a crafty lady, there’s a way. Whether these guys are actually boyfriends or not, they're clearly haunted by the experience -- so much so that the hilarious Sad Etsy Boyfriend Tumblr began documenting the horror. Here are 14 of the saddest ones we spotted on the Internet's biggest crafting k-hole:

The boyfriend who promised himself this was the last time he was going to take his shirt off in the snow. The last freaking time.

White Peacock Feather Necklace


The boyfriend who has been practicing this stance and relaxed mouth look longer than he would like to admit. In a Cosby-inspired sweater, no less.

The boyfriend who seriously couldn’t even keep it together for the photo.

Grey Houndstooth cycling Cap


The boyfriend who can’t tell if he’s hanging his head in shame or because there’s some giant craft project weighing down his skull.

Diamond Grid Earrings


The boyfriend who doesn’t care if this sweatshirt is super comfy -- it’s pink and there’s a giant green whale on it. There's real sadness behind those eyes.

Whale Hoodie


The boyfriend who is trying to convince you he is actually happy wearing this hat, but is secretly freaking out a little.

Ash Grey Slouchie Beanie


The boyfriend who is trying to pull off that angsty unicorn look and is failing miserably.

Custom Unicorn Hoodie


The boyfriend who can’t believe he is actually wearing a penis-shaped brooche. I mean, is this really happening?!?

The boyfriend who is trying to hide his tears with his unruly hair. We feel you, dude.

“I will not pretend to wait for you to wake up again, the universal mind  all times wake up all times…”


The boyfriend who is just so happy he gets to wear sunglasses in this photo. (Yes, that's a crocheted hat with a built-in beard.)

Beard Beanie Hat


The boyfriend whose soul is being crushed under that bunny costume. That smile you see right there? It’s not real – he’s dead inside.

Rabbit Costume


The boyfriend who looks into the distance and wonders what his life has come to.

Topographical Map Bowtie


The boyfriend who is trying to fake that whole hipster Napoleon Dynamite look, but knows nobody is buying it. We see through your pain.

Oversized Grey Silk Cardigan


The boyfriend who literally is wearing flowers as a beard and could care less if you wanted to touch it.
