I’ve reviewed a lot of different zombie-centric stuff here at The G.O.R.E. Score: movies, novels, video games, comic books, novellas, iPhone apps, TV shows, anthologies, music…but there’s always more out there. Not only is there more to be found, but zombies exist in mediums that I haven’t even explored yet! Well, I’m happy to say that, with today’s review, there’s one more medium I can check off the list: clothing.
Yes, my friends, the undead have started to invade the fashion world, and it’s a beautiful thing. And I’m not just talking about a funny t-shirt company carrying a ironic zombie shirt here or there – full-fledged clothiers dedicated specifically to horror and the walking dead are out there. And I’m happy to bring one of them to you today: Above the Pants, a little (for now) company with some big ideas.
A collaborative effort between artist Byron Rempel of iDrawZombies and iScreamProductions/BuyZombie founder Stuart Conover, Above the Pants currently sports 15 different shirt designs, with plans to increase the offerings exponentially in the not-too-distant future. The majority of the shirts feature the undead in some fashion, with a few general-horror and logo shirts thrown in for good measure.
