Another Month.......Another Buffy T-Shirt!

Hi!

Late last year, the ever gorgeous and lovely Marian alerted a few of us on twitter to the fact that Qwertee had a Buffy the Vampire Slayer t-shirt that particular day. I placed my order.......only I didn't, because it never went through due to goddamn bank charges making me overdrawn. I only copped a few days after and I was SICKENED.

I decided to trawl the internet to see if I could find an alternative Buffy t-shirt, and that I did - I discovered Redbubble, which can only be described as an Aladdin's Cave. I almost did an excitement wee when I typed "Buffy" into the search box - there were hundreds! I decided that I'd order a t-shirt once a month, but I'm not allowed buy any nail polish. Which is logical and fair in my mind. So far I've ordered two - they're all different prices, but with P&P to Ireland, most come to around €25. Redbubble are brilliant for discounts though, and they sent a voucher with the first order (I got €6.50 off the second one). Here are the two I have so far:


I ordered a Dingoes Ate My Baby one back in December - it arrived within two weeks, which was pretty good considering the snail-like pace of international mail before Christmas. It was designed by an artist calling themselves 'Darth Willow' (all t-shirt designs are submitted by individual artists), and I picked the original colours for mine (you can pick from a range of colours before you order - t-shirts are made to order. Designs are also available on hoodies). My husband was horrified when he saw me wearing this - he's not a Buffy fan and had no idea what it was, bar the fact that we had just had twins and I was wearing a t-shirt that depicted a woman serving up a baby to a pack of Dingoes. Bit of an oversight on my part there....

Redbubble use American Apparel t-shirts. With regard to size - I'm pretty much a standard 16-18 in  most tops (except Penneys, where even the 20s don't fit me) and can be a bit booby depending on the bra, so I ordered the XL in this. It fits perfect and there's loads of room. I ordered the next one in a 2XL which was ludicrous, because it's too big, but it's grand for layering over other tops.

OMGWTFBBQ

I placed another one in January, again it took around two weeks to arrive. Every redbubble t-shirt comes with a little label attached by a cute mini clothes peg and the details of the artist.


This was the second one - "Greetings from Sunnydale" by Tom Trager.


I have now accumulated quite the wishlist on redbubble - I think this one is definitely next on my list for February, but here are a few of the other designs that caught my eye:


All details are available in my favourites section or by using search terms. You can also design your own shirts, hoodies or stickers, and submit them for sale.

Also: Daria!! Did everyone else fancy Trent? Please say it wasn't just me...
