The Le Magnifigue Collection by Vaughn de Heart

A few Co-Tee TV episodes ago, I reviewed Vaughn de Heart, a unique brand started by self-proclaimed Vaughntrepreneur, RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman. Well, Vaughn de Heart is back with a collection of new and limited items. Le Magnifigue was released on Black Friday and fittingly features 7 brand new Vaughn de Heart products, all of which are black. What makes this collection truly special is the limited run number of each of the products in the Le Magnifigue Collection. Each item is limited to seven pieces. Why 7?

“It actually start with the zip hoodie. I put Le Magnifique on the back and I thought I was done. Then while I was sitting at work one day crunching numbers (I work during the day as an analyst) the idea of the magnificent 7 came to me. I thought, “I’ll make 7 hoodies!” But that didn’t seem like enough. When I got home I got to my computer and started designing more and the idea of 7 items and making only 7 of each happened. Then the idea of the numbered cards to give it a special feeling. Then the idea of the gold tags, and the special drawstring bags as packaging. I actually started making this collection in August (That’s why there is a tank in the collection), that’s how long it took all of the details to come together, and now that it is made and my screen printer thoroughly hates me for putting him through this ordeal, the collection is finished.” – RoyLyn Le’Vaughan Palmer-Coleman

I took a quick peak at the Vaughn de Heart shop and noticed that a few of the items from Le Magnique are already sold out or only available in 1 or 2 specific sizes. So if you see something that you like, I highly recommended that you scoop it up! Items from this collection are priced from $24.95 to $54.95 and are available now from the Vaughn de Heart online shop.

Land of the Free: Official Threadless TSA Airport Body Scanning T-Shirt

You can always rely on Threadless when it comes to being on top of popular culture, even if it has to do with the newly implemented and controversial TSA airport security guidelines. This shirt seems like it came out of nowhere, I just spotted it a few hours ago on the left sidebar of the Threadless homepage. The T-Shirt was designed by photographer David Vincent Wolf, who, upon closer examination of his Threadless profile just became a member of the popular T-Shirt site less than a week ago.

Interestingly, Gizmodo posted the Land of the Free image seen on the Threadless T-Shirt in a blog post and said:

“Someone should make T-shirts with this image and sell them at airports. With a TSA logo on the back.”

Land of the Free obviously pokes fun at the incredible PR nightmare that is the US Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration. Over the last week, there have been countless nightmarish TSA stories that have been spreading online. The stories range from the ability for the new body scanners to save nude photos to the cancer survivor who had a pat down that caused his urostromy (urine) bag to leak and spill all over his pants to the little boy that was stripped and given a pat down.

The stoic image on this T-Shirt sums up this whole messed up situation. Is losing our rights and liberties every time that we travel worth it?

Land of the Free is available now from Threadless for $18.

Massive List of Black Friday T-Shirt Deals and Steals

Well you guys requested it and the Massive List of Black Friday Deals and Steals is here! I’ve been getting a lot of email and tweets from people asking me to either post about their Black Friday sale or whether or not I would do a list of Black Friday deals. I was going to wait until Thanksgiving, but since a few of these can be had RIGHT NOW and since the deals are already floating around the Internet (see Emptees and Hide Your Arms), I decide against waiting.

In any case, here you go, the annual list of Black Friday Deals and Steals! I’ll be updating this post as the week progresses and more sales pop up. If you’ve got a Black Friday sale planned or you’re already doing something then be sure to let me know and I will post it.

Who’s Who: All 11 Incarnations of Doctor Who on 1 T-Shirt

Warning, this next sentence will sound very bad to many of you and I apologize in advance. I have never watched a single episode, or even a seen single frame of anything Dr. Who related.

There, I said. Does that make me a bad person? Probably. Especially since I like to think of myself as someone that stays on top of all thing pop culture related.

Shame. On Me.

OK, now that I’ve got that off of my back, let’s talk a little bit about this “soon to be gone” gem from TeeFury. The shirt is called Who’s Who and it features all 11 incarnations of Doctor Who on a single T-Shirt. The shirt, which will only be available for 24 hours TODAY (and at the time of this post, there is just 18 hours left) is available for sale now at TeeFury for just $9. Rad. Even though I have no connection whatsoever to Dr. Who. You might then wonder “Rad? How so?” How is it that someone who has no connection to Dr. Who would consider a Dr. Who shirt rad. Well, it’s all in the process. And designer Ian Leino shared some of the process that went into making Who’s Who. The amount of research and though that he put into this one T-Shirt design is pretty fucking rad and well worth 9 bucks.

Buy Who’s Who at Teefury Now.

TIP: To coincide with the release of Who’ Who, Ian Leino is offering 15% off at his online shop by using the coupon code “WHOSWHO” at checkout!

“Who’s Who combines my love of Dr. Who with my fond remembrance of high school and college stunts to show what would happen if ALL ELEVEN incarnations of the Doctor tried to cram into the TARDIS at the same time.”

“The first stage for almost any of my work is to do some deep research into the project. For this design, I wanted to ensure that I got all of the details right for each Doctor including facial mannerisms and costumes, so I pulled lots of reference images.”

“As much as possible, I tried to use existing photos as references for the Doctors’ expressions, but for a few of them I just couldn’t find the look I needed. For those, I took reference pictures of myself and used those as a positioning guide to be able to draw their features into the expressions I needed. Once I was happy with their likenesses, I combined them with my earlier sketches in Photoshop, then printed out the new image and took it to my lightbox for inking.”

“Now that everything was drawn, I combined the two inked images in Photoshop and after much tinkering was able to get the palette down to 5 colors for printing. I separated the colors, prepped the file, sent it in to TeeFury and if you like it, now you can wear it on your body!”

Slaughterhouse Five: So It Goes

Remember out friends over at Kafkacotton? I interviewed the founder way back in Indie Tee Spotlight #27, he was the guy that travelled around the country in a life-sized cockroach costume named Gregor. It looks like Kafkacotton is back with another literary T-Shirt classic. This time, it’s the Kurt Vonnegut classic Slaughterhouse-Five that is being featured on the latest Kafkacotton tee.

I must admit that I am guilty of never reading Vonnegut’s classic. Then again, there’s a lot that I haven’t read. Maybe it’s available as a free download in the Apple Bookstore or on Amazon.

“When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in a bad condition in that particular moment, but that the same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is “so it goes.” – Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five is available now from Kafkacotton for $24 and all order will receive free shipping until December 24th!

Like Seriously Uber Cute Foxes

Oh why hello brand spanking new Greg Abbott print at Tilteed! Foxes is the latest limited edition print from our pals at Tilteed and you have less than 2 days to score this T-Shirt at the pre-sale price of $12. I must admit that I really dig the colors of this particular tee. It screams Fall even though we’re headed right into the dark and cold days of Winter. And by the way, did you notice those cute foxes? I think that they just might be a tad cuter than those fennec foxes playing in the video below. A pet that looks as if it’s part dog, plays as if it’s a cat and has facial features like an anime character MUST be full of WIN. Like this T-Shirt.

Foxes by Greg Abbott is available now at Tilteed for $12 but use the coupon code TILTCOTY at checkout and score $2 off!
