Carmilla! Hollstein, Est. 2014

Heyo, Creampuffs! We’re proud to count ourselves among you, and THRILLED for the Carmilla movie that’s out today!

We have lots to say about how abso-freaking-lutely awesome Carmilla is, why we wished we had watched it sooner, and many deeper thoughts about LGBTQA representation and feeling validated, seen, and appreciated as fans.

Right now we want to announce our Hollstein Est. 2014 shirt – so we’ll say all these things later after we’ve watched the movie (at the time of this writing, we haven’t yet). HERE IT IS, WE’RE SO EXCITED.

EU Creampuffs – get your Hollstein Est. 2014 gear in the EU Store – click on Carmilla.

Fangirl Shirts ClexaCon Fun Run and TEAM FANGIRL

Fangirl Shirts is thrilled to be returning to ClexaCon 2018! We’re looking forward to the entire experience. And as vendors and panelists, we are also excited about contributing to the ClexaCon community.

One of the new ways we’re contributing is by organizing a fun run/walk for ClexaCon 2018! It’s called the Fangirl Shirts ClexaCon Fun Run. The Fun Run is just that – a fun run, or a fun walk, and it’s free and open to everyone. No experience is required.

First, the details. Save the date!

Date:  Friday, April 6, 2018
Time:  7:30am
What:  a fun run or walk from the Tropicana to the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign and back! It’s 1.3 miles each way. We’ll pause at the sign for some selfies and a group photo.
Why:  because it’s fun!

If you’re interested in joining the fun run, subscribe to the Fun Run email list below!

ClexaCon Scholarship Fund

ClexaCon – the fabulous Media & Entertainment Convention for LGBTQ Women and Allies, taking place April 5-9, 2018 in Las Vegas that we LOVE and can’t wait to go back to next year – has a scholarship fund. The scholarship fund, which you can read all about at their website, has a goal of raising $25,000 to help with travel costs and expenses for some panelists and attendees who would not otherwise be able to attend.

We had a transformative experience at ClexaCon in 2017, and we want to help people have a similarly awesome experience. Fangirl Shirts made a donation to the Scholarship Fund – and you can too, right here. As of September 27, 2017, the fund has raised $8,220 of the $25,000 goal. ClexaCon will collect donations until October 31, 2018. We want to help them get closer to that goal.

So in addition to the donation we’ve already made, we’re going to do this:  between today and October 31, we are designating five of our shirts as “ClexaCon Scholarship Fund Beneficiary Shirts.” We’ll donate 50% of the proceeds from these designs to the ClexaCon Scholarship Fund.

The shirts are our ship shirts that celebrate some of our favorite women-loving-women pairings from some of our favorite shows. If you’ve been thinking about getting one of these shirts but haven’t yet, buy it before October 31 and half the proceeds will go to help someone attend ClexaCon next year!

WayHaught Vegas – the special “con shirt” we made to celebrate WayHaught in Vegas at ClexaCon 2017

And, if you already own all of these shirts, but still want to help, we encourage you to donate to the ClexaCon 2018 Scholarship Fund directly. Also, the deadline for applications for scholarships, September 30, 2017, is fast approaching, so if you’ve been intending to apply, don’t put it off!

See you in Vegas, baby!

I Love Earp

Hello, Earpers, how is everyone doing in the liminal space of In Between Seasons? We are going to be hard at work during this time making new stuff for Earpers and for other fandoms. We also wanted to take a moment to celebrate how totally awesome Season 2 of Wynonna Earp was.

Wasn’t it FABULOUS? The storyline, the unexpected plot twists, the brilliantly executed pregnancy, the suspense, the drama! All of these things were thrilling and moving. What binds it all together is the characters and their relationships with each other. The most exciting story in the world would be boring if the characters weren’t that interesting, and the most boring story in the world can still be gripping if the characters are complex, three-dimensional, and compelling.

Well, we Earpers are lucky enough to have both – an exciting story and compelling characters. TV entertains us, but at its best it also makes us feel things. At its very best, it inspires us and helps us learn about ourselves and how to navigate our lives and all the situations that we go through as humans. How do we make decisions that seem impossible? How can we be brave when we feel scared? How do we decide to live authentically and love the people we love? How do we become our better selves?

Perhaps you’re like us at Fangirl Shirts. We can see parts of ourselves – who we used to be, and who we want to be – in the characters of Wynonna Earp. We also see parts of people we’ve come across in our real lives, and watching our Earp heroes navigate both challenging situations and relationships with each other is a huge part of why we <3 this show.

So we’ve made some shirts that celebrate the characters. (There are 336 variations for 14 characters, so skip down to the list in this blog post to get quick links to each character.) These shirts pair well with a leather jacket for when you’re out on your motorcycle for a quick visit to your mom in her mountain hideout, with a blazer when you’re being a boss at the office, or with shorts when you’re out running a 5k.

No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you can tell the world who you love and all about the awesome TV show Wynonna Earp. (And if your actual name also happens to be Waverly, or Emily, or Wynonna, etc. then people will just think you have healthy self-esteem.)

North America and other countries that aren’t in the EU, get your Earp on here. EU, you’ll find yours in the EU store.

Right now there are shirts for:

We know we didn’t get every single Earp character, so if you have a favorite that we missed, tell us in the comments, email fangirl at fangirlshirts dot com, or tweet us @fangirlshirts and we’ll add it!
