Deadcelebritee is a Los Angeles based t-shirt store specializing in creepy, geeky and cheeky t-shirts. Yes, many of the t-shirts feature tributes to celebrities that have shuffled off this mortal coil.
We are a brand focusing on the Horror, Rockabilly/80’s, Tattoo, Sugarskull and Geek-tastic genres. We love all things creepy, geeky and cheeky! Because of this we often found it challenging to find cool threads to express our unique taste! We figured we wouldn’t be the only ones to have this problem.
Deadcelebritee T-Shirt Review
Now, this is a little embarrassing. I’m not sure when these t-shirts arrived but I’m pretty sure it was some time last year. It’s been in my closet for a long time and I didn’t know what it was. I thought it was something my wife got. So, my deepest apologies to the guys and girls at Deadcelebritee. I don’t have the mailer it came in for some reason. just the box and a pretty cool box at that. But I’ll get to that later.
There were two t-shirts in the box, one dark heather gray and the other shocking pink. Both of them are very light. The men’s heather t-shirt being a little lighter. I don’t know what the material is but the pink one feels like 100% cotton and the gray is more than likely a blend. The ink is reasonably soft.
One of the t-shirts has an image of a winged devil lounging on the word BASTARD in a stylish deep red text. The quality of the design is impeccable and the text compliments the design both aesthetically and thematically. It’s not something I’d wear though, even if I didn’t have children who would be reading it and asking me to explain it.
The second t-shirt is black ink on a shocking pink shirt for girls. The design is a clever mashup of skulls forming the shape of a heart.
I think there is a market for these kinds of shirts but I am also sure that my household is not part of that market. I was a little disappointed that neither of these designs had a celebrity connection considering the name of the store.
Branding and Extras
The two t-shirts came in a very cool custom box and the t-shirts were wrapped in crepe paper. Each t-shirt was in its own clear plastic envelope. It was very well done.
They both have a card tag attached to the t-shirt with the store logo, some information about the t-shirt and care instructions as well as the store URL.
They also have a printed tag on the inside neck of the shirt with similar details.
They are hard to read but look good.
There were also two stickers in the box.
The website is well put-together. It has a modern design without looking generic. The website design actually complements the style of the t-shirts, apparel, and accessories that they are selling. It is very easy to navigate and they use big clear images. With about 17 men’s t-shirts and 9 women’s, they don’t have a huge selection but if this is the style of t-shirt that you like, I imagine you will find what you are looking for. They also cater to plus-sized people. Their blog has left the building.
Shirts seem to be in the $20 to $24 range is fair.
While the t-shirts are not to my particular taste, they are good quality and the design quality is impeccable. It’s not that easy to create awesome one-color designs but they have pulled it off. The t-shirts are also appropriately priced.
The packaging is awesome which would make for a great gift. They seem to be doing a good job here. Not much advice I can give but perhaps start up the blog, try to connect with like-minded people and increase their catalog.
