Seven days. One week. That’s all the time it took to get my nifty new “He’s weird but he sure is happy about it” Darren Criss shirt produced by Elsie Cast featuring brilliant artwork by @JesslovesDarren! This is my first experience with TeePublic, but it certainly bodes well for my future online t-shirt orders.
I have a…thing for message shirts. I allow myself to have only a certain amount (established many years ago after I realized I had a RIDICULOUS number of them which is embarrassing to even say out loud) so I have to be somewhat discerning in buying them, but I just love walking around with something I believe in or like visible for everyone to see. No surprise, a lot of mine are library-related, and many reflect my life philosophies, and the rest…well, the rest have something to do with Darren Criss.
I knew I had a LOT of Darren Criss shirts, but I just now found out that I have ten of those (including the new one). This means a full third of my NSFW wardrobe says something about Mr. Criss or some project he’s involved with. I also know what you’re thinking. WHY do I need TEN shirts about Darren?
The logical answer, and the one that I am fully aware of, is that no one NEEDS ten shirts about one person. But, MY answer is that I respect, enjoy, admire and flat-out adore Darren (in a non-stalker way), so why shouldn’t I have as many shirts about him that I can find that reflect the amazing scope of his talent, his unique view of the world, and his quirky sense of humor like this new one does?
For those more interested in the logistics: I got an email two days after I ordered it saying they’d shipped it, then it arrived five days later which is truly amazing. The discounted price was great, of course, although it looks like their regular prices including shipping aren’t bad. The shirt is comfortable (not scratchy like some) and the sizing is accurate. If I had to come up with a negative, it’s that the choice of colors in the plus sizes are limited, but that’s not unusual…(sorry, got distracted by an earworm there for a second) and there was still enough of a variety to choose from.
So, go forth and shop! You’ll support Elsie Cast’s fabulous efforts to spread art around the world AND you’ll get a fabulous shirt or sticker or some other fun tidbit for yourself.
