Clothing Review: Serial Killer Shop- ‘Bloody Ash’

11954764_1607844489503679_5371853008026420879_n

With an abundance of companies popping up across social media pushing t-shirts and other merchandise, it is important to be aware of what companies are legitimate and what companies are trying to rip you or artists off. The guy’s at Serial Killer Shop have Bloody-Ash-Unisex-Tee-Black_1024x1024reached out to me to do a couple of reviews; are they legit? The answer is yes. The first design I was sent to review is the ‘Bloody Ash’ (Evil Dead) Design.

 

T-Shirt & Design Quality

If you’re going to pay any amount of money for an item, you want it to be a quality purchase. The shirts are really soft and fit like a glove. The sizing is true to fit; I would recommend that if you are like me and like to customize or cut your shirts to size up one size.

The stitching is tight; this may not seem like that big of a deal, but it actually is. I have received shirts that were not exactly cheap only to receive them full of loose threads and even wholes in the armpits and along the side seam.

The print quality is fantastic; it is super soft and looks and feels like it was made into the shirt organically as opposed to being printed on.

Did it stand up to washing?

Nothing is more frustrating than finding that perfect shirt only to have it ruined in the17991054_10211008779408766_4569273124801889040_n wash. This shirt held up very well; it still has its shape, still the same size it was when I put it in, the material may actually be even softer and the printing still looks incredible. (With washing and drying)

Price

The retail price for the ‘Bloody Ash’ design is $25.95, which is a standard price for a t-shirt nowadays. If that is too steep, it is currently on sale for $12.95. Whether you’re paying full price or you snag it on sale, it is pretty fairly priced.

Shipping

Serial Killer Shop is based out of California, so keep that in mind when placing your order. It only took 4 days from the time of order to receive the shirt (I live in Ohio), so with all steps included in packaging and shipping an item, it was pretty fast.

Final Verdict

I would recommend this product. The site is legit, their items are great quality and the staff is friendly and easy to get in contact with.

You can find Serial Killer Shop on Facebook and Twitter and for full product listing, visit SerialKillerShop.com.

Stores in the mall bog us down with the popular, “trendy” pieces that don’t really fit out horror loving taste. So what is a person to do when looking for that perfect horror t-shirt? Simple, check out Terror ThreadsThe spooky folks at Terror Threads were kind enough to send us a couple of t-shirts to review, and the first one up for review is their Clowning Around t-shirt

Artwork for t-shirt by Toto6

We may love our gore, but we still love a soft, comfortable t-shirt (we’re not monsters), and Terror Threads provides just that. Their t-shirts are made of soft combed ring-spun cotton. They are form-fitting without being over clingy and unflattering. The material of the shirt only gets softer and more comfortable over time each time you wash it.

Screenshot_2016-03-10-10-25-35-1The design is unlike any other because it is an original piece designed just for Terror Threads. The artist behind this incredible piece is Toto6. The artwork covers the majority of the front of the shirt. For only having a couple of colors, there are a lot of incredible details (the clown’s face, the wood and stitching on the puppet). The screen printing is done beautifully. It is not overly crisp, it moves with the shirt, and ladies, the design will adhere to your chest without distorting. This particular design is available on a unisex t-shirt in sizes x-small – 3XL. 

Purchasing one won’t leave your wallet empty. The Clowning Around t-shirt starts at just $22. Code LBOH10 will get you 10% off your purchase. To sweeten the cauldron, if you spend $65 or more, shipping is FREE. Pick up this awesome t-shirt HERE.

All in all, this is a must have for your horror t-shirt collection. Terror Threads is sure to become a name that all horror fans know.

The Milk Club: Independent clothing brand based in South Wales

1722922_278531112299901_934227002_nI have always been a supporter of the indie scene whether it be music, movies or brands. When I was contacted by a reader that is trying to start up his own clothing brand, I of course wanted to help spread the word for him. His up and coming brand is called “The Milk Club”.

The Milk Club is an independent clothing brand based in South Wales. We are chunk teestill in our infant stage but hope to grow through the quality and passion we inject. The launch is on target for April with the finer details being ironed out in the coming months. 

The brand is rooted in contemporary digital illustration and design centred around the stuff we like and with hope the stuff you might like as well. Creating only original artwork currently produced by the often warped mind of one individual, in time The Milk Club intends to bring you a diverse range of screen printed tee’s and some other tasty treats.

street trash teeTheir first t-shirt is due out in April. It will be a horror style play on the ever so popular “truffle shuffle” from the iconic 80’s film, ‘The Goonies’. There will also be a t-shirt inspired by ‘Street Trash’. Each design will be limited to 50 t-shirts. Each t-shirt also has its own video to accompany the release (below).

Interview: New Horror Inspired Clothing Line, 7hirteen

The world of horror inspired clothing is a competitive one indeed.  I have gotten the opportunity to interview some newcomers to the world of horror clothing Kevin, owner and lead designer of 7hirteen.
1463902_202404839964111_441613692_n

LBoH: What inspired you to start 7hirteen?

Kevin: I had been thinking about starting a design company for a while. I just didn’t know exactly what I wanted to design until 1549360_199227300281865_1016434676_nSeptember of last year (2013). I guess you say it was sort of an epiphany of sorts. It just hit me one day. A design popped into my head. I guess you could say that was the start of 7hirteen. I released by first official design Halloween 2013. The Nosferatu “Do The Creep” tee.

LBoH: 7hirteen is a very interesting name, how did you come up with it?

Kevin: Ha, I actually get asked this a lot. Basically I took my favorite two numbers, 7 and 13, and put them together. That’s really it. A lot of people see 13 as an unlucky number and 7 as a lucky number. For me it’s the opposite. It’s kind of my version of the whole good and evil, Cain and Abel, Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde thing.  There’s also some other angles and reasoning  behind  the numbers specifically but I’ll save those for another time. 🙂

LBoH: How long have you been designing?

1150140_208053309399264_1598132114_nKevin: Well, I’ve been artistic for as long as I can remember. I’ve always enjoyed drawing, creating and exploring the arts in different mediums. I would say I started “designing” things in my teens. I used to draw concept cars and things like that.

LBoH: Where do you pull your inspiration for your designs?

Kevin: I am inspired by a number of things. I’ve always been a huge fan of things like horror movies and metal music. My favorite bands like White Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails…they all had a lot of visual art along with the music. Todays bands just don’t have that kind of impact I don’t think. I was always interested in the dark arts. The occult. I’ve always been fascinated by things that were  considered “evil” or “taboo” by some. I would read books and articles about serial killers.  The more you learn about those people the scarier they are. It’s psychological. Not just the horrific acts they performed, but the reasoning.  I’m sorry, am I rambling on again? Lol. My ideas probably draw from all the above and then some.

LBoH: What types of designs will you be releasing, licensed, original or both?

Kevin: I really want to concentrate on originals. At least for now. I would love to do some licensed work in the future. I try to pull something from the past, like a classic horror icon, and mix them with something current. Grab the attention of fans from different angles. There’s really no limits on what I will create. No topic or genre I won’t tap into. I want to push the envelope. I’m not trying to be better, or scarier, or more popular than anyone else, I’m just creating designs that I like. That I would want to wear myself. If other people dig them (the designs) then great! If not, stay tuned. My next one might be the one. You’ll never see it coming.

LBoH: Will 7hirteen only ship within the US?

Kevin: Definitely not. I am looking at different suppliers to offer customers international shipping. Plus, if a customer contacts me 1511703_202952439909351_1872443923_nand they want something shipped outside the US, I’ll find a way to  get it there.

LBoH: Have you ever considered taking 7hirteen to horror conventions?

Kevin: I have not considered that. It may definitely be an option in the future but right now I feel 7hirteen is just too small and new to do that. You never know though.

LBoH: What do you see 7hirteen in the future?

Kevin: It’s hard to say. I do know I will continue to push this further and bigger as long as people are interested and like the designs. I have a lot of short term and long term goals I am going to set in place when the timing is right. Right now I’m just having a lot of fun with it and seeing/hearing peoples feedback and comments on the social networks has been great.
