Monster Merch Review & Giveaway

Update: I'd like to thank Monster Merchandise for sending out another t-shirt in my size, so I can enjoy one as well as you!

Today I'm reviewing a t-shirt by UK designer Monster Merchandise. So stick around and let me tell you about it. If you're good and read to the bottom of this post, you can also find out how you can win this t-shirt!

The design I received to review is called Krang Raspberry. I love the cute redesign of Krang, otherwise a pretty horrifying monster from Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles (or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as it's known almost everywhere else!). I find the mix of the horrible with the nice really attractive. The colours are nice and bright, the pink and brown print complements the yellow t-shirt very well.

The quality of the t-shirt itself is very high. The fabric feels nice and soft and is neither too thick nor too thin. The print is not too thick; some prints can be very rigid and lack flexibility, but this one is very flexible, which means it shouldn't crack and peel off.

The other designs available from the Monster Merch store are also very nice, with a mix of cute t-shirts and witty t-shirts, there's something there for almost anybody. My personal favourites are, along with Krang Raspberry, Godzilla and Frankenskell.

I have only two minor negative comments, one is that the t-shirt shouldn't be ironed, according to the care lable, secondly ladies sizes only go up to a large (UK 14-16). So if you're a bigger lady, you'd have to go for men's sizes, which don't always fit properly.


So would you like to own this lovely t-shirt, or know someone who would like it? It's a women's size S, which is about a UK size 10. If you do, you can take part by doing one or more of the following:

1. Leave a comment on this post and let me know what your favourite monster is, cute or otherwise.
2. Check out the Monster Merch site and let me know what your favourite design is.
3. You don't need to be a follower to enter, but you get an extra entry if you are a follower of my blog or of my Facebook page, and leave a comment telling me you are.
4. Tweet or blog about this giveaway, or like it on Facebook, by clicking the link at the bottom of the post, leave a comment and let me know if you have.

You can get an entry for each of those, so that's four entries each you can get.

The giveaway ends next Saturday (15 Dec) evening and the winner will be announced Sunday 16th.

Good luck!

  3. My favourite monster has to be Sully from Monsters Inc. Even though I'm almost 20 it's still a great movie! I've been a massive fan of Monster Merch since Gavin started it, and I have the 'Son of a Bitch' vest which was definitely a great part of my summer wardrobe, with the tote bag!
