I ♥ T-Shirts: SLAYER (31DoHM07)

Comfortable, practical, and these days the only accessory you need to make a statement, it's hard to imagine a world without the ubiquitous T-shirt. I ♥ T-Shirts takes a subjective approach to this modern fashion phenomenon with each post dealing with a favorite shirt. In this Halloween-related post, I blog about one of my favourite "in a mood" T-shirts.

Shirt: Slayer
Designer: ??
Price: Under $5
Purchased: 2007 on eBay
Status: I wear it when I'm in a "mood"

No deep story behind this T-shirt. It was simply an impulse buy on eBay one night when a song by Slayer (a long standing favourite band of mine) came up on my iTunes shuffle. The tee's image of a human skeleton with swords forming some sort of monster skull is ridiculous yet menacing and reminds me of just the sort of bad movies and good books I delved into as a kid. Indeed, ever since I was twelve, I've been drawn to graphics accompanying Slayer merchandise. Back then, my mom would have probably burned any such T-shirt and by the time of my later teen years, I was way too cool to be seen in such garb. Perhaps the purchase of this shirt was a symptom of a mild form of not-quite-mid-life-crisis? A moment of Death Metal Peter Pan-ic?
Whatever my convoluted motives, I particularly enjoy watching for any passer-by reactions when I wear my Slayer T-shirt with, say, something along the lines of my Barbour jacket. When the mood's right, nothing beats having a Slayer T-shirt stowed away to add a pinch of grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr to my day.
