Fashion Zombie: End of the Road

Posted by Cory Casciato On June - 18 - 2012

The End of the Road

This week’s fashion zombie entry is something of a callback to one of my favorite zombie t-shirts of all time. It’s by the same artist (Aled Lewis), same company (Threadless) and it essentially illustrates the same scenario: our hero facing off the amassed undead from a tactically sound yet strategically doomed vantage point. What’s not to love? It could be called derivative of its forerunner, but I say that’s bullshit. There’s nothing wrong with an artist revisiting a theme over and over again if the theme is cool enough, and this one is plenty cool. This one will set you back $20 from Threadless, which is a mite steep, but I will say that I still have every Threadless shirt I have ever purchased and they are still in great shape, so you do kind of get what you pay for. If you are the patient type, you could also wait for one of their intermittent sales, which often see their fine torso coverings selling for as little as $10.

Fashion Zombie: YOLT

Posted by Cory Casciato On June - 11 - 2012

You Only Live Twice, YOLO, YOLT

Apparently the neologism YOLO is all the rage among the kids. An acronym of “You only live once,” YOLO is typically called upon to justify some stupid, rash, and occasionally lethal decision—like, say, teasing a zombie. If that were to happen, the result would be what you see above: You only live twice, even if the second time around it’s as some ghoulish, flesh-hungry, animated corpse. In other words, it’s just what everyone needs: a zombie-themed lampooning of the idiotic youth trend of the moment. Huzzah! This shirt will set you back $20 at Snorg Tees, which is a little steep in my opinion, but hey, YOLO, right?

Fashion Zombie: The Walken Dead

The Walken Dead, Fashion Zombie

This week’s Fashion Zombie turns the spotlight on the Walken Dead. Is that a joke so obvious even your not-clever friend thought it up by the third episode of season 2 of The Walking Dead? It is. Is it a one-note, essentially dumb joke? It is. Does that mean it is any less sweet of a t-shirt? It does not. So enjoy your Walken Dead t-shirt and joke, for the reasonable price of $14.99 from TShirtBordello.com, or at least buy it for that friend of yours that just thinks it’s the funniest fucking thing he’s ever heard so maybe he will finally shut up about it. Bonus: In case you haven’t seen it, the video form of this one-note joke is embedded below.

Fashion Zombie: Typography of the Dead

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 14 - 2012

Fashion Zombie, TheYeTee, Zombies

Fashion Zombie is back! And it brought a sweet shirt, naturally. This is yet another one of those “only available for a limited time” places offering cool t-shirts, and their first Fashion Zombie entry features a nice mix of the living dead and typography. As you can see, they’ve spelled out “zombie” using, well, zombies. This is one of the less-gruesome, more-cutesy zombie shirts, suitable for draping yourself in at children’s parties, company picnics, or while trying to pick up the cute girl/guy in horn-rimmed glasses at the coffee shop. But act fast! It’s only available for about 10 more hours, for the entirely reasonable cost of $11.

Fashion Zombie: Moon Ghoul

Posted by Cory Casciato On October - 4 - 2010

You probably won’t look as incredibly hot as the model wearing this week’s Fashion Zombie pick when you wear it (unless you do, in which case send pictures and we’ll run them!), but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a damn awesome shirt. It’s called Moon Ghoul and it’s by artist Dave Cook, designed especially for Zombie!

In case you’ve forgotten (or haven’t read the site that long), the Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse has a long history with Zombie!, an art/rock project by Eric Weiss. We helped him publicize his plight when Rob Zombie’s dick lawyers were after him to change his name (Rob Zombie personally intervened and called his over-enthusiastic lawyer army off) and one of the other Zombie! designs was featured in My Favorite Zombie Things, a feature photo post I did a while ago that was something of  precursor to Fashion Zombie. Now, it’s time to feature another one of his designs (which is also a personal favorite of mine).

Fashion Zombie: See you in the next life!

Posted by Cory Casciato On September - 27 - 2010

Let’s face it, when it comes to zombies, many of us have wondered how the other half lives. Sure, it’s noble to ask your buddy to put one in your head so you don’t come back, but deep down we all kinda hope he’ll miss and we’ll get a chance to wander around all dead-eyed and hungry. And that makes today’s shirt a must-have for any zombie fan who’s honest with themselves about this unspoken desire.

Also, you can get it cheap, thanks to Crazy Dog T-shirt’s discount offer to you, the good people who read this site!

Fashion Zombie: Zombie meme!

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 30 - 2010

Nothing says “zombie” like something that’s back from the dead, even if the thing that’s back from the dead is an ages-old (in Internet terms) meme such as “All your base are belong to us.” Remember that one? (If not, use Google to edumacate yourself already!) And here it is, back from the dead and freshly zombified in the form of a “All your brains are belong to us” zombie shirt.

Fashion Zombie: Kill or be food!

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 23 - 2010

This week’s Fashion Zombie pick has a simple, clear message: Kill, or be food. When the inevitable zombie apocalypse comes, that’s rule number one! And the design leans toward the relatively subtle side — well, there’s no gore or viscera on the shirt, anyway. Just a little crest over your heart with crossed chainsaws under the word Dezombifier and that simple, inspirational message (plus the company’s initials, TTOFS).

The back features your nutritional info, which is a useful shopping guide for any zombies on the prowl. You can see images of the back, as well as a shirt picture that shows the design in contest, below. Or you can head directly to the Try This on for Size website and buy the Dezombifier shirt for $15. Whatever makes you happy.

Fashion Zombie: Zombie miners union

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 16 - 2010

This week we take a look at a pro-labor zombie sentiment, in the form of this fine poster T-shirt (that is, a poster-style design on a T-shirt) advertising for the Zombie miners union local 432. Hey, zombie labor needs to collectively bargain, just like everyone else does. Plus, you can pair this with your “Join us for a better death” shirt for a week of good ol’ fashioned socialist zombie sentiment.

This shirt (designed by Mark Bloom, if the name on the poster is to be believed) is another Etsy find, from the mind and store of Etsy user Zed’s Zombie Ranch. You can own it for $20 + $3 shipping in the US. A little steep, perhaps, but it’s a DIY/indie thing, so it’s not like you’re being ripped off by some soulless megacorp. And presumably, it’s all made with unionized zombie labor, so there’s that.
