Winter is approaching, and with it, ugly Christmas sweater season—that magical time of the year when you gather with your closest friends and laugh at each other’s horrifying duds. But a new entry into the field will have your bank account ho ho ho-ing in your face.
Designed by Christmas sweater company Tipsy Elves, who clearly hit the eggnog pretty hard indeed, there’s a new ugly Christmas sweater that will set you back $30,000 for the privilege of looking dually ugly and festive at holiday parties this year.
Now, $30,000 is a pretty big chunk of change, no doubt, but that number starts to make some sense once you know a bit more about the sweater in question. Thanks to Swarovski, the self-dubbed “World’s Most Expensive Ugly Christmas Sweater” is befitted with 24,274 crystals—make that 24,275 once you slip it on, wink.
The sweater, which took 52 hours to make, would be a striking visual with or without the bling. It depicts Santa riding a unicorn in orbit of a planet that looks a lot like Saturn. The design marks a crushing blow for Rudolph, who may have visibility in fog but is not, like the apparent unicorn, a spaceship.
If you were to actually pull the trigger and buy the sweater, not only would you be the lady with the ugliest sweater in all of the land, but Tipsy Elves will also send your sweater to you complete with a “luxury frame,” per its website. That’s right: you can display this beaut like the work of art it clearly is.
As if the sweater weren’t attention grabbing enough on its own, it’ll make its TV debut on Good Morning America, per Bustle. Ogle it this Friday, if your ugly sweater-loving heart can bear it.
