Do any of you guys actually buy t-shirts specifically for Halloween? Because I couldn’t see myself wearing this at any other time of the year. Then again, Halloween is much bigger in the US than the UK so maybe Americans would have a week or so in which it could be worn whereas we have one or two days in Britain before it would look odd.

It might be getting a little late to order a t-shirt specifically for Halloween, but that doesn’t make this list of “31 Hauntingly Awesome Halloween T-Shirts” any less readable, well, maybe a little bit, but just a little.


Post image for Johnny Cupcakes x Hello Kitty launches on Thursday, get ready!

Last year the Johnny Cupcakes x Hello Kitty Halloween collection sold out in less than 24 hours, and I expect that this third spooky collaboration between JC and the cute kitty will sell out just as quickly, which is why I wanted to give you guys the heads up a couple of days early so you were aware of the launch.

They’re going live at 10AM on (EST) on Thursday, and the collection consists of three tees (which will be $40 a pop) and one hoodie (which I can’t find the price for). Any of you guys going to be picking one up?

I guess it’s fair to say that Goodie Two Sleeves are getting ready for Halloween. The $13 discount will be automatically applied to your cart when you spend $40, and that offer will be ongoing until November 2nd.


Post image for Seventh.Ink’s Haunted Collection III available now!

Far too often people release their Halloween designs too late, but Seventh.Ink have given you plenty of time to get your order in and get a tee or two in time for the scariest night of the year. Well, they actually released this range back on September 20th, but there’s still plenty of time to get your shirt since it’s not even October yet.

I don’t think I’m alone in my belief that the box set ($125) is the standout piece here. It’s really cool to try and make this annual ‘Haunted Collection’ release something special and I think that the box sets achieve that. Cool designs as well, not the kind of thing that I’d usually wear, but then I don’t go near horror-themed shirts all that often, and I don’t think we could ever expect a Halloween release to be sunshine and rainbows. Tees are priced at $25 a piece, and hoodies are $50.


fancy robot halloween t-shirts

I feel a bit bad about this post. I get sent a lot of e-mail and it’s hard for me to deal with all of it quickly and effectively, meaning sometimes I miss stuff, and sometimes stuff I really want to post gets forgotten completely. Fancy Robot e-mailed me more than a week ago to let me know about their release of three designs, and it’s taken me until now to properly look at their site, and I’ve found that with them being Halloween themed that most of the interest in the shirts will have gone now that we’re gearing up for an entirely different kind of holiday.

The shirts even have “Halloween 2011″ printed on the back on them so they’re immediately dated and make you less likely to want to wear them next year. That’s something that I just can’t recommend to any brand, don’t put a date on anything that is annual, the only time that you want to put a date on any item of clothing is for something unique (like President Obama’s inauguration, for example), putt a date on your clothing makes the chances of selling any of your stock after the event a lot harder work, especially when bloggers are late writing their posts.

The shirts are all available now in male & female sizes and cost $25 each, but you can use the coupon code TREAT to get 30% off your order.


lady gaga halloween t-shirt

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shirt that references Lady Gaga before, so that’s something new from TeeFury.

Yup, the Disney logo is a shirt meme, fortunately the designs I’ve seen so far have been pretty cool, and I’d count this offering from Qwertee amongst that group.

Interesting shirt from Tilteed (that I presume they’ve sold before since they have model shots of it), nice big print on it. have been cranking out the new designs recently, huh?

Excellent work from former HYA writer Randyotter at Shirt.Woot today, this may well be the cutest penguin shirt I’ve ever seen.

Fun shirt from RIPT today, though of course no one will know you’re wearing it in Winter because you’ll have several layers on top.

Nicely done Portal shirt at The Yetee today.

Pity that you won’t be able to get this 24tee shirt in time for Halloween, I’m sure it could be useful with a few outfits.

Can someone explain the reference on this TeeRaiders shirt/hoodie? Is it referencing an actual event or is it purely invented by the artist?

Lovely starry negative space design by Loviu today, right up my street.

When memes and games collide at Shirt Punch today with ‘Snake in a Box’.

Catch of the Day Tee again don’t have anything on their site, I wonder why they don’t put up a message when they haven’t got a shirt to offer, or why they don’t just run the shirts for another day of sale.

Ugmonk have got a new lookbook that reveals no new tees, but does look pretty.

The Daily Street have a roundup of Johnny Cupcake‘s Halloween release event in London.

Dark Bunny Tees have put a new shirt up for pre-order, this one celebrates The Last Starfighter, and the first 100 orders will also receive a free Space Invaders styled poster.

Glennz has cut the price of all the ‘scary’ shirts in his catalogue to $13.95 until the end of the month.

How to start a clothing company takes a look at the pros and cons of screenprinting vs. direct to garment printing.

Mashable put out an article not-that-long-ago that called ‘10 Essential Tips for Startups‘, and judging by some of the things I get in my inbox I think that quite a few t-shirt companies could do with heeding some of their advice.

A Better Tomorrow must be getting close to relaunching their site, take advantage of the savings on their own shirts (this offer doesn’t apply to brand stores).

Spook City has released an exclusive Halloween shirt limited to 50 pieces. Extra smalls are already sold out, so get yours while you can.

Andy: Cool shirt, I like that it isn’t too Halloween-y, you could wear this just about any time of year (please note that Spook City are a HYA advertiser, but I like the tee, so it’s all good).

monster under the bed t-shirt

As part of my attempts to make HYA less about me, me, me and more about every aspect of the t-shirt world, I’ve brought in another blogger to share another angle of the design world, but instead of pointing out cool t-shirts by other people, Sleepy Dan will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run a clothing line. It’s something that I really like to see on brand’s blogs, so it was perfectly natural to bring that kind of experience onto HYA, to give tee-fans and other brands an insight into how a t-shirt goes from the idea stage to being worn by a customer. It will be a long-running series (we have no plans to put a cap on it’s length), and I’m really looking forward to it. If there are any other brands that would like to share their knowledge and experiences please get in touch.

Sleepy Dan’s most recent release is also going to be a series. The ‘Monster Under The Bed’ series will be released every Halloween, limited to 60 pieces (individually numbered), and as you would expect, have something of a horror theme. The shirt is $28 and available now from Sleepy Dan.

{ 0 comments } haunted halloween release

As soon as I see a brand release something that includes a custom box, I can tell that they have kicked things up a notch, and that is the case with Seventh.Ink and their latest release release of shirts and hoodies. Judging by the pics, you can tell that this release is intended to coincide with Halloween, but thankfully the designs can be worn at any time of year, I’ve never really understood people who buy items to be worn on a specific day, and that’s coming from the guy with enough shirts to literally wear a different one every day of the year. In their words, here’s what is in the collection:

- 3 new designs (Midnight Owl, Gentleman Ghost, and Shakespeare’s Wolf)
– 7 Limited Edition Box Sets that feature a laser engraving of the Gentleman Ghost
– Limited Edition Hoodies and Variants
– Laser engraved wooden coins that ship with every Haunted Collection shirt

This is a limited edition release, there are 140 items available (I think that is spread across all the designs), so get on it now if something catches your fancy. Shirts are $24, the hoody is $45, and those super special box sets are $95.


zombie t-shirt

Actually, it’s not just 20% off the zombie tee with the coupon code HALLOWEEN, but everything in the store, but on the spookiest weekend of the year (or the one where kids are most likely to be a-holes, your choice) what other tee would you buy from Mediocore?


miles to go halloween t-shirt

I probably shouldn’t be giving so much love to my tee blogging competitiors/compatriots, but when they do good work I feel like I should mention it, and I’m certainly not in much of a ghoulish mood, so I’ll leave the Halloween tee roundups to Adam from I Am The Trend, who has written up a short list of some cool horror shirts.

portal t-shirt

I’m not going to a Halloween party this year (I don’t think it’s as big of a deal here in the UK as it is to American folks) but if I were I think I’d attempt something along the lines of this since I love spending far, far too much time making fancy dress costumes. Famed hacker Ben Heck has created an outfit that is probably pretty simple compared to his other projects, a polo shirt with a portal (as in ‘the cake is a lie’ Portal) that makes it appears as if there is a hole in your body. In my head it would be fairly simple to build since it’s ‘just’ a camera and an LCD screen, but I’m sure it’s a lot more complicated that I would imagine. Are any of you guys going to Halloween parties, and if so, what will your costume be?


Fresh Prints is proud to present our latest Halloween line! An annual tradition, this year we bring you our glow-in-the-dark “Boo!” tee as well as our “Mr. Monster Tote”.

[Andy: It’s probably a little late to order a Halloween tee now (which is kinda my fault as this post was submitted a few days ago), but I still like the shirt.]

halloween costume guide

Found Item Clothing sell t-shirts that are faithful recreations of designs found in movies (generally 80s movies), so it’s pretty natural that people are going to want to wear them on Halloween to a party, but how do you complete the outfit? I didn’t know about this but pparently for the past few years FIC have been putting together halloween costume guides for some of their movie tees, and this year is no different, with a few more additions to the guide. They provide a head-to-toe guide of everything the character wears (in this case Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), and even a print-out card that you could take with you if you went shopping for items for your outfit.



If you’re wanting to get a jump on next year’s Halloween festivities (I’ve missed out on Halloween for the past 4 years because of my French adventures) then there would be few better ways to do it than with a tee or two from Akumu Ink. The latest release is the single tee you can see in the pics, dubbed ‘The Ripper’, which it’s probably fair to assume is a design based upon famed serial killer Jack The Ripper. If you like the Akumu style then it’s pretty likely that you’re going to like this design, they have a look tha works and it’s no surprise that they stick to it, especially as there aren’t any other companies out there that I can think of with a similar style.

Also added to their store recently are some package options. You get to pick the tees and/or hoodie in each of the three package options (one package does feature a ‘mystery’ tee), and receive a discount that equates to 10-15% off buying the items individually.



We’re probably very near the point at which you can still buy tees with the intention of wearing them on Halloween, and if you’re in the mood for one you could certainly do a lot worse than this offering from Chop Shop (or just go to Coty’s epic Halloween post and go crazy). As is their style (and another companies, but let’s not get into that, more than 1 person can have the same idea), this design features silhouettes of famous characters, this time around they’re all undead. This tee marks the third and final design in their horror/fantasy, and you can pick up a 3-pack for $45 which is a saving of $15 over buying them separately.

Here’s a higher resolution version (which is also numbered) of the design for those of you that can’t stand looking at it and not working out which character is which.

New tees from Randr

by Andy on October 15, 2009


Sooooo, it’s halloween then?

Seriously though, those are some damn nice horror tees.

Randr Tees



There’s not much more for me to add after such an informative headline, except that I should probably point out that the razorblade on th necklace has rounded edges so it’s safer than it looks (safety first!), and that Dance Party Massacre sell the necklace for $17.95, so it’s a pretty high value freebie to be getting with your order.

Chop Shop weBite vampire t-shirt

What on Earth will they ‘we’ next?

This time around the Chop Shop team have found 34 famous vampires and put their silhouettes onto a tee (in the shape of a bat), which is something that you should come to expect from them by now since this series of tees has been a pretty big hit, and when something works, you don’t go changing it now do you? I’m not a teenage girl so I can’t tell you, but I wonder if there are any characters from Twilight on this tee? We all know tat Robert Pattinson is sales gold!
