Mimi and Will September 2013 T Shirt Design Proofs

Here’s the seven t-shirts in our launch collection. We have had a few enquiries from shops about stocking our t-shirts. If you’re a shop and are interested, please do get in touch!

Inside the virtual dressing up chest

My favourite kind of party is a fancy dress party, and my favourite tv show as a kid was Mr Ben.  So it’s no surprise that I’m super-envious of the costumes children nowadays get to wear on just about any occasion.

This dino hat, by Elf and Munchkin, would go brilliantly with our Supersaurus t-shirt.  It’s available in a range of sizes, and custom colourways are available on request.

If you want this next one, you have to be quick!  It’s reduced to clear at Lupin Handmade, via Etsy and there are only 2 left.  We have Lupin’s fox and panda masks and they’re a huge hit at dressing up time.

We find ourselves back at Supersaurus again – with this fantastic cape from I Wish I Was, perfect for little superheroes.

And these raccoon dungarees by WildThings are described for boys, but I know at least one toddler girl who would love a pair…  Our Treehouse t-shirt by Jolly and Hodie would look fantastic against the grey of the dungarees!

So that rounds up a selection of accessories and outfits for parties or for playing, all handmade in the UK by independent sellers.

Supersaurus by Neil Slorance

We’re going to be updating this blog with pictures of the final t-shirt designs and some more about the artists and designers who we’re working with. First up is Neil Slorance , who designed Supersaurus for us. It’s available in white and is screenprinted onto an organic cotton t-shirt. Like all our designs, it’s suitable for boys or girls. Find out a bit more about Neil after the pics:

Neil draws things and does comics. You can buy his acclaimed book (nominated for several Scottish Indie Comic Book Alliance awards, don’t you know) , The Amateur Astronomer’s Journal from his etsy shop or buy it on Kindle.

Here’s a pic I took of a painting of Neil’s that I have.

I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s been described as follows:
“The dragon guy is firing the robot and it has made him not very happy. I like it, it is orange”

You can see more of Neil’s art on his tumblr.
