Lets form Voltron! by Local Celebrity [Review]

by Andy on September 29, 2008


What? Did I just manage to go a whole week without writing about a tee from Local Celebrity? I guess you could say the same thing about going a whole week without seeing a tee that was about Voltron!


Anyway, here we are with yet another Voltron tee that gets a lot more love from my friends than the usual arty stuff that I usually cover my unnecessarily-hairy torso with (you got a mental image of that? awesome!). As with the other Voltron tees I’ve reviewed from Local Celebrity, this one is fully licensed and features artwork that accompanied the show when it was first broadcast on television, which I think it almost a necessity in a culture that’s as otaku as anime people and tee people can be.


So, you’re looking at this tee and thinking, “hey, they’re printed it in a burnout-esque kind of style” or perhaps “I wonder how they got that vintage look?” Well, this tee is actually printed completely normally… except the print is on the inside. Unusual right? So, if you turn it inside out it looks like a regular t-shirt with the writing backwards, but I think that it gives it a good look, not necessarily a vintage look, but something reminiscent of a vintage look, which may or may not make sense to you. If you’re worried about having the print going directly onto your chest and the problems that you cause, you can’t feel the print at all, and the tee itself is super soft as well, in case you’d forgotten my gushingly positive reviews of their tee quality in the past.

    it’s a good idea of how to get a new t-shirt effect but it looks like a shirt that you’d just given to a 5 year old to colour in with their markers :\

    Pretty cool looking tee. I like the vintage effect a lot.

    The tag looks kind of cool too, the screenprinted logo on the inside back… Can you post a photo of that?

    I’m wondering… if you have a bunch of tees from different places, maybe you could do a post all about the tags/labels in the back of shirts. I think it’d make a cool post, since you take such nice detail photos.

    Krystal, I can see what you mean about the marker pen look, but I think that may be my fault somewhat because of the way that I like to process pictures as I’m often a little overeager to push up the contrast.

    The last picture in the gallery is a closeup of the screenprinted tag, but I’ll make sure that when I do my next LC review I get a couple of shots of the whole tag.
