    "I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity." Same.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

    1. A relatable quote from your friend Edgar Allan Poe that'll make you feel right at home.

    Get it from Jane Austen And Company on Etsy for $13.

    2. A 14-pack of nail decals (inspired by another tortured soul like yourself) to wear on your next night out.

    Promising review: "These were beautiful and went on the nails effortlessly. I did find some of them being a bit too wide for my nails, but you can cut them carefully before you peel the sticker. They lasted me about two weeks amd that was without using a top coat. I got lots of compliments and enjoyed wearing them." –B.P.M

    Get them from Amazon for $3.99.

    3. A Courage The Cowardly Dog hoodie for anyone as deeply disturbed as the show was.

    Get it from Italian Rican Art on Society6 for $46.99 (sizes S–XL).

    4. A charming mug featuring dinos ready to die before your eyes.

    Nothing like drinking your coffee from a mug that'll remind you of inevitable extinction.

    Promising review: "Obviously you are buying this mug for the heat-sensitive aspect of the design and that works wonderfully. My coworkers love seeing the dino skins disappear and the skeletons revealed, so it's a great conversation starter. Another added bonus of heat-sensitive design is that you can visually tell if your coffee has cooled off." –I buy stuff

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    5. A dark tarot guide because we all know the dark cards are the ones you'll love the most.

    This book is sure to ~suit~ your aesthetic.

    Get it from The Dark Exact on Etsy for $9.95+.

    6. A lipstick with a studded case that'll match your next all-black outfit.

    Promising review: "What I like about this lipstick is that you don't have to put on a thick coat to have a solid color on your lips. It's not sheer, but it's not overpowering either. It's smooth and feels nice on my lips. Doesn't come off much when I drink from a glass, either. Which I also have to say is a plus, because who likes reapplying lipstick all day? This is the fourth lipstick I've purchased from this brand, and I must say that I'm still impressed and I'm going to purchase more. Love the quality of the product. And the actual tube design is just awesome." –Florence

    Get it from Amazon for $8.76.

    7. A zombie squirrel so your doggo can get in on the darker side of life.

    Look at that mighty howl.

    Get it from Bark Shop for $12.

    8. A pair of 10-inch Dr. Martens with embroidered roses you just may die over.

    To die for my Docs is a worthy death.

    Promising review: "I'm a huge fan of Dr. Martens. I have a lot of them and wear them all the time. This is a very cute boot; I bought it for the gorgeous rose embroidery and because I was looking for a taller boot. I wear women's US size 11, medium width, and Docs fit true to size for me. My feet are slightly narrow with a high arch. Seems like the newer Docs these days have better insoles and arch support." –NW Dryad

    Get them from Amazon for $120.88+ (sizes 5–11).

    9. A rainbow unicorn watercolor illustration for anyone who really deep down is just a bursting ray of sunshine.

    Tfw your *dark* aesthetic takes a colorful turn.

    Get it from Charamath's Art Corner on Etsy for $5 (5"x7").

    10. A optimistic patch to iron on the clothes you wear in your optimistic life.

    What a darling little skeleton.

    Get it from Bad Vibes on Big Cartel for $7 (3"x5").

    11. A book that is more helpful than it is morbid, because planning who will get dibs on your stuff in the event of death is serious business.

    Promising review: "Some people may not like the title, but it makes me laugh every time I add to the book. It not only stores the information, but will help you remember additional things to add with space for notes. For those of us who really don’t know where to begin or what to include, this was a great beginning, and is making the process much more entertaining! Even if you store all your info online, this is much more personal." –LR

    Get it from Amazon for $11.22 or Barnes and Noble for $11.29.

    12. And a beautiful Beetlejuice pin you can wear and look cool as hell while you're still here.

    Get it from Hopesick on Etsy for $7.50.

    13. A dad humor–inspired T-shirt worthy of your ~dad of the dark side~ aesthetic.

    Promising review: "Love it. Picture is really good quality, and big! Now I’m looking for other shirts made by them." –Eric

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (sizes 3X–XXL).

    14. A banner to hang up for your next break-up party, house show, apocalypse party, or other joyful events.

    This banner was made to match your mood.

    Get it from Dark Ideals on Esty for $10.75+ (multiple phrases available).

    15. And a dark AF card game everyone will be all over at said party. Does it get much darker than exploding kittens?

    Promising review: "I purchased this game after a couple introduced us to it. We play a lot of card games with them. Our all-time favorite was card Monopoly, now it's Exploding Kittens. My wife and I fell in love with this game, it's extremely fun. I even had a guys night watching the premiere of The Grand Tour and playing this game, we preferred playing the game over the show. It can get so intense that you almost sweat during gameplay. Worth the $20 I paid. I would recommend for anyone who has at least two or three friends who aren't too boring." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. A greeting card that you might find as blank and bleak inside as you are.

    Ennui indeed.

    Get it from isabel greetings on Etsy for $4.

    17. A pair of sterling-silver rose earrings made from natural amber for you to wear with your natural sadness.

    You may not be naturally ~rosy~ but these earrings are.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.90.

    18. A ouija planchette soap so you can add channeling the dead to your self-care routine.

    Get it from Manon the Moon Mystics on Etsy for $6.

    19. A book of comics you'll depend on to explore your most gruesome and bizarre fears.

    If one of your fears is bad books – fear not.

    Promising review: "The book itself looks as creepy on the outside as it is within, and looks great on any bookshelf. It's a great read and well worth the price. Also it was nice to see that some of my more mundane fears are not mine alone." –Bree B

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (Kindle, hardcover) or Barnes and Noble for $12.98.

    20. An Attack on Titan phone case worthy of *falling* over.

    Just don't fall as hard as the human race does in the show.

    Get it from BradixArt on Society6 for $28.79 (available for 14 Apple models and five Samsung models).

    21. A Ricky And Morty DVD for anyone who needs a heavy dose of dark humor during the rough times.

    Promising review: "Rick and Morty has to be the best new sci-fi comedy in years. The animation is awesome, and the writing is extremely clever. Each episode takes Rick and Morty on a new adventure that feels like a mix of Doctor Who and Futurama, but with a lot more crueler humor. Rick and Morty has to be one of the funniest shows in years, and it will crack you up." –Adam Silvia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (DVD, Blu-ray).

    22. A velvet hoop triangle choker that'll make you stand out from the rest of the sad sad world.

    Get it from FALAFALA on Tictail for $8.72.

    23. A 3D skull pan to ensure your next cake is the sickest thing of all time.

    Promising review: "Bought it for my son's 11th birthday. I used white cake mix and filled just the skeleton, put a drop of red food coloring in the eyes, and then filled the rest of it with green cake mix. When it was ready, it looked like a skeleton with glowing red eyes rising out of a swamp. The kids didn't even want me to frost it. Best cake pan ever. Make sure to spray it with non-stick very well." –Mary Popio

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    24. A ticket to Valhalla patch with velcro backing so you can move it to whatever bag/item of clothing matches your mood.

    Promising review: "Extremely happy. I am a big, burly guy and it makes me want to cry with joy. I got two, one for me that I sewed to my pocket; and another for my friend. If you cut the velcro off, it's easy and still a badass patch. It isn't a cheaply made patch, well done!" –Joseph Marchetti

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    25. An album by Joy Division worthy of a listen on your most dreary days.

    Promising review: "Joy Division's debut album might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it finds a way to draw listeners in. Here we find a band lost and at home at the same time; on the verge of a great discovery, but only just. The genius of the late Ian Curtis paints a bleak, but at times hopeful world that might not have changed since. The remastering recaptures the sounds just as they were recorded in 1979, and the recollection reveals the secrets behind the magic. The inclusion of a live show from the Factory club offers the counter-point to the album's reserved sound; raw energy flows onstage as many familiar JD standards are brought forth (much more aggressively than their studio clones). No Joy Division/New Order collection is complete without this first step." –Nicholas Peter Lingo

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49+ (MP3, audio CD, and vinyl).

    26. A six-pack of chocolate almond butter tarts that just may be darker than you are.

    Order these once, and you just may be cursed with ordering them forever, because they are delish.

    Get them from Jet for $8.09.

    27. A pair of curtains ready to send you into your next existential crises with just one look!

    Thanks, outer-space.

    Promising review: "Great artwork and easy to install. Not a blackout curtain by any means, I am waiting on liners to help block the sunlight more. Other than that they are great and worth the price." –pa 1911 fan

    Get them from Amazon for $64.95.

    28. And a cast-iron tea set for ~steeping~ in your feelings while you sip hot tea.

    Set includes one teapot, one trivet, and two cups.

    Promising review: "I took a risk on this tea pot. I mean, not the kind of risk that anyone will write a movie about, but a risk nonetheless – I like quality and have zero patience for anything cheap. The risk was that this tea pot was on the inexpensive side, so it could have ended up in a garage sale. Instead, it's perfect. The removable steel infusing basket is a really cool touch that preserves the rustic aesthetic, without the rustic pain in the ass. Love it." –J. Ryan Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95

    You and all your new dark AF stuff.
