It’s been a while since I’ve done a notable alchemy because there’s just been pretty normal requests when I’ve looked. For those of you new to my blog, etsy has a feature called alchemy where you can request things and sellers and bid the requests and make you something you can’t find any where else. I sift through those and find ones that are funny, weird or in some other way notable. I present to you the next notable alchemy.
Hopefully Halloween will bring us some interesting or bizarre ones. I thought this Alchemy request was pretty fun because she wants not only a gnome costume but a travelosity gnome costume. Before I read this request I was unfamiliar with travelosity’s gnome but I guess you can buy your own from their website and take photos of it on your journeys. I think that’s pretty funny. See this link for more info.
Here’s the listing
