Irritatingly, Teespring doesn't seem to offer anything above a size XXL, which is kind of insulting.
What are all the hot fatties supposed to wear, huh ???
But, if you feel like owning a
SOPOR AETERNUS RULES
, a pair of
or even a
... well, you can have all that instead (or as well, whatever) ... over at
. Actually, it looks like
shirt sizes go up to 3XL, which is a start.
I was bored. It happens. Occasionally.
So, out of
I rewatched this movie from 1987...
I never really liked it back in the day, and I only ever rented it once. I thought it was stupid, and I hated the kids.
Well, fast forward 33 years ... I am now way more forgiving than I used to be. Practically saint-like. Also, these days I can fully appreciate all the arts and efforts that go into creating … well,
Anyway, as most people already know, this movie is about a group of exceptionally ugly children, and the leading brat of the bunch keeps prancing around in his gawd-awful, pretentious poser T-shirt...
...and I thought to myself:
"This hideous thing should really be a SOPOR shirt. Just to seriously confuse and piss-off everyone … - if nothing else"
So, I sat down to try and recreate the look of said shirt, only to be instantly appalled by the boring plainness of the design. Or rather the
of one. I mean, yes, for this incredibly hilarious "joke" to work, the shirt would
to be a (more or less) exact copy of the one in the movie. But … NO … I couldn't do it.
I needed … more. More with SOPOR.
Slightly exhausted by all this faux '80s nostalgia-insanity, I began drifting off into my current erotic fantasy (
possible future husband) ...
... who used to be the secret (but shining) star of this little known, fabulous homosexual propaganda show, entitled
"Universe" … and suddenly I realised what this shirt was lacking:
Saint-Varney-of-the-Dead holding aloft the magical JU:SA staff of power
I emailed Mexican Martin (yes, that is his name) about this idea, who then quickly sketched the figure I had envisioned.
"Great, close enough!"
, I replied … and slapped it on the shirt:
WAS BORN !!!
Now ... as every proper serial-killer will tell you, imagination is all good and well, but at a certain point you will want "the real thing" ...
… and I now needed this shirt!
needed this shirt !!!
So, I had one printed ...
( A damn lot of orange though. But still ... )
... What I needed next was somebody to actually wear it.
Preferably a body with a
of his own.
So, I asked one of my hot musclebear friends to model it for me ...
Yes, I know ... "technically" ... the shirt is at least one size too small for him, I suppose. But, hey ... it looks damn good that way ! ;)
Oddly enough, I actually really
like this shirt. Seriously. And not just on him. I don't know, there's just something about it that makes me smile ... which is a welcome change.
Sadly though, this will never be an "official", screen-printed SOPOR shirt ... for all the obvious and boring reasons. But I like it so much that I decided to make it available over at
Just for the fun of it. Hopefully, a few other people will like it as much as I do. And, if so ... I absolutely want to see photos of them wearing it !!!
Also, on a completely unrelated note...
...I think the world is also in desperate need of
an entire line of
fabulous SOPOR action figures!
