Creepster magee real. And since a whole bunch of our horror tees are on sale for only $12, we thought, let’s get to the heart of the matter here. Let’s reach out to our awesomely awesome artists behind some of these tees and have them get real with US. So now what do we have for your viewing and reading pleasure? A line-up of spooktacular tees, complete with a revelation from each artist: the scariest thing they’ve ever experienced. So go curl up in a warm, cozy place, ‘cuz every terrifying story you’re about to read below… is 100% REAL.
“A bunch of seagulls tried to strike me down like a common egg thief. It was basically Hitchcock’s ’The Birds’.”
“Years back my roommates were obsessed with the video game Silent Hill 2. Some nights after playing, they were so terrified and too scared to go to their own rooms alone, so they would camp out in the living room together.
Meanwhile, one of our friends stopped by and told us about an abandoned Catholic school. That night, we snuck in through a window, only to discover it looked just like the level in Silent Hill 2 with the twisted elementary school. Everything inside the classrooms and halls were rotted and eroded. Water leaking from the roof caused a frequent tapping that sounded just like distant foot steps. We braved it out though, and walked the entire two floors of the building. At the end we found a church with all its pews and altar. Above it was painted the word ‘DEATH’.
That’s when we all collectively pooped our pants.”
Kyle Cobban: "First day of school as an art teacher. 30 students, all 6 years old. Everyone crying. Please help."
Nestor Gomez: “Watching my son having an asthma attack for the first time and not been able to help him, not only because his condition hadn’t been diagnosed yet, but because I was far from a hospital and broke. The second scariest was when I was a kid in Guatemala and got stuck in the middle of a blackout with no candles or flashlights, when I was absolutely terrified of the dark.”
"Waking up on Saturday morning only to discover it’s actually Monday. And there’s a world coffee shortage."
Morgan Satria: "When I’m working on a project with little time remaining, and the computer suddenly breaks down, loses my work file, and I have to start again from zero. It’s like running towards the exit pursued by Jason the killer.”
hafaell: "It’s not easy to scare me, but once, when I was in college in an empty classroom, my friend was hiding behind a desk and in absolute silence said ‘Goat’ (which is ‘cabrito’, in Portuguese). He said it in such a calm manner and in a voice I didn’t recognize that it scared me absurdly. It sounds silly, I know, but I jumped from the chair!"
Blair Sayer: “I found a Redback spider on my mail recently, then flicked it in the air, and had to check my hair for the next three hours making sure it hadn’t landed in it.”
"I was at a party at my friend’s house in college, and late that night, around 3am, left a conversation with my friends to go to the bathroom. Along the way, I passed an old wooden rocking chair which I didn’t mind, but did suddenly feel a chill, which I ignored it and continued to the bathroom. On my way back, I heard a screeching sound and looked for it. That’s when I found the old rocking chair moving on it’s own, which made no sense because no one was sitting on it, and there was no way air could do that. So I panicked and ran out of the house, back to my friends. I didn’t say anything, but months later, my friend mentioned he saw a mysterious person in the house that same night of the party. I immediately got goosebumps, which only got worse when he said he told his dad about the mysterious person, and his dad knew exactly who he was talking about. Years ago, when the house was being built, a middle-aged guy accidentally fell, became impaled, and died on the spot. The thought of that guy still gives me chills every time I visit that house. And that is the scariest experience I have ever had in my life!”
“On a trip once, I stayed in a hotel overnight and woke up because of a strange noise. When I got up to see what it was, I came across a figure… but it was just a scare, since this figure was nothing but my own reflection in the mirror.”
WARM & FUZZY… HORROR TEES?
Kittens, puppies, bunnies, and flesh-eating, chainsaw-wielding, night-stalking monsters. One of these things is not like the other. However, at times, life’s warm & fuzzies seem to collide with the spooktacular, and this collection of tees proves it. While each of these designs certainly express a level of creepy, they also contain an inevitable air of adorableness. Maybe it’s because our awesome artists out there are a little nuts, or maybe it’s just because they’re so kind and considerate that they don’t want to scare everyone too much, but regardless, we’re really diggin’ this collection of warm & fuzzy horror tees. Plus, they’re all only $12 until Friday! So buy ‘em up and freak your friends out while also filling their lives with just the right amount of snuggles.
The one time Frankenstein seems to be an ok dude is when he’s hanging around ice-cream cones, rainbows, neon stars, and everything Lisa Frank.
I don’t know, I might welcome an alpacalypse. These guys are pretty cute. Just sayin’.
Don’t you kinda feel like this big Octurg fella is just waiting to be understood? Sure, he squishes people and terrorizes skyscrapers because he’s ginormous, but I bet he really just wants to sit at the park and talk about feelings.
A whole bunch of ghosts just waiting to brighten your day? C’mon, you know you want to be friends with them.
This owl’s looking creepy. And his head is melting. But he’s quite literally warm and fuzzy, so let’s hold out hope for the best.
Most likely, these T. rex’s will eat you alive. But the fact that they’re friends with fuzzy kitties makes me feel like maybe, just maybe, they’ve got a soft side in there.
He’s only fuzzy when in bat form, but it looks like this cute lil’ bloodsucker got a bit too warm during his day at the beach!
GET YOUR $12 ZOMBIE TEES. SINCE THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING.
Oh, that eerily unsettling sound you hear outside, of dirt moving, twigs cracking, and bones creaking? That’s just your old zombie friends, unearthing themselves from their graves and coming out to play for Halloween. Have no fear: they’ll probably just slowly stalk you in the single most methodical and terrifying fashion ever, scare you out of your mind, and then maybe eat your guts or something. We don’t really have any way to armor you against the undead, but we thought you could try suiting yourself up with pics of their friends, and maybe they’ll have mercy. Check out a lineup of our fave zombie tees below (on sale for only $12!); they may be your saving grace. We’d tell you to lock your doors, but c’mon. That won’t do anything.
Best not answer the door. It’s not the pizza delivery guy.
Remember when two against one felt threatening? Zombies don’t mess with child’s play.
It’s not just about the bed bugs, guys.
And all you wanted were flowers.
Actually, you should really, really become friends with this girl right about now.
It’s worse than you thought.
The one morning you’ll wish you overslept.
It’s safe to say the vacation’s over.
You may think you have a choice…
Zombies get sad, too. But they’ll probably still eat you.
There’s no longer a need for breakfast.
Be warned: These guys aren’t jumping out of planes just for the fun of it.
Even mythical creatures stand no chance against the hunger of the undead!
