X-Files first premiered on TV on September 10, 1993, so this week we are celebrating the 24th anniversary of X-Files! The show captured our imaginations and has had a lasting impact.
One of the most impactful things for us was seeing Dana Scully on screen, playing a super smart science nerd, a medical doctor, an FBI agent, and in every way an equal to Fox Mulder. As science nerds ourselves here at Fangirl Shirts, she was and is an inspiration.
Kira Beaudoin is also a huge X-Phile, and created this fantastic design that we are bringing to you in collaboration with her. For those of you in the EU, you can get yours in the Fangirl Shirts EU Store. Happy 24th anniversary, X-Files!
But wait – there’s more!
At Fangirl Shirts our core mission is to make awesome shirts for a previously underserved population of fandom – fangirls, and we are proud of that. We are also committed to inclusion, and we know that not everyone identifies as a girl, or a fangirl. Whenever possible, we try to make gender-neutral designs available as well.
So we also are proud to announce in collaboration with Kira the X-Phile design.
Visit Kira’s Redbubble store and her Etsy shop to see all her awesome work.
Have you heard of #WynonnaTravels? An Earper @Julieco75789404 thought up this idea, and @Deb_Renee drew an AMAZING graphic and has mailed and sent laminated Wynonnas to fans all over the world. Fans photograph her on travel adventures near and far. You can see them all on the #WynonnaTravels facebook page.
For Deb’s upcoming birthday, her amazing, wonderful, thoughtful wife had an idea: how about putting #WynonnaTravels on a shirt for Deb as a surprise? We helped make this vision a reality. Then, wouldn’t you know it, several Earpers said they would like to have one too, and Deb said we could make her design available for everyone.
We asked Deb if she’d like to designate a charity for part of the proceeds, and Deb chose the BARC Animal Shelter & Adoptions, which is helping to rescue pets from flooded homes in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. 50% of the proceeds will go directly to the Houston BARC Foundation, which is the 501(c)3 wing of BARC.
Get your own #WynonnaTravels shirt today! (EU, yours will be available soon in the EU store after we iron out some technical difficulties.)
It’s that time of year – back to school! We’d like to invite you to further your education at Themyscira University. We offer a well-rounded program to students, including majors in Smashing the Patriarchy, Fighting Racism, and Defeating Fascists and Nazis.
Our students enjoy a wide range of extracurricular activities. The Themyscira Equestrian Team consistently wins awards for horsewomanship. This year we look forward to welcoming to campus the newly formed Themyscira Swordplay Squad, the Amazonian Archery Association, and the Olympus Debate Team.
Themyscira University is situated in a delightful island location and enjoys year-round sunshine and ocean breezes. You’ll enjoy the company of accomplished Amazons, warriors, and a demigoddes or two. You might graduate, but you’ll never want to leave!
Our students joining us from the EU can find these university shirts in our EU store.
Here’s to another great semester!
You may have heard about Earp It Forward, a kindness project inspired by Wynonna Earp and created by @kindnesskru. The Wynonna Earp fandom is already known for kindness (it’s contagious, have you heard?). We know of several Earpers who have done giveaways with their con swag, for example, and fans who have bought T-shirts for each other and for new Earpers.
From time to time we’ve been asked if we can help anonymously facilitate Earping It Forward with our shirts for people. We would love to offer this as a service for Earpers who want to give an anonymous gift to someone else. Here’s how to do it:
- Please fill out the form below with your name and email address, and the contact information (twitter handle or email address if you know it) for the person you’d like to Earp It Forward to
- Let us know what product you’d like to Earp It Forward for (a specific T-shirt, one of our other products, etc.), or if you want the recipient to choose, and if there’s a maximum amount you’d like to spend
- We’ll contact the Earp It Forward recipient and ask them to select what they want
- Once they’ve selected it, we’ll send you an invoice via PayPal for the cost of the item, tax, shipping, and a $3 facilitation fee for us handling the communication and logistics
- You pay the invoice
- We send the Earp It Forward recipient their goodies!
If you have any questions about Earping It Forward with Fangirl Shirts, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks! Be kind!
Into each generation of Earps, an heir is born.
Kat Jetson from The Hollywood Reporter wrote an article noting how Wynonna Earp is paying homage to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Wynonna Earp reminds us of all the things we loved about Buffy, while also being completely original and unlike anything else on television.
Our friend Kevin Bachelder from the Tales of the Black Badge, a Wynonna Earp Podcast is also a huge Buffy fan. He had a vision for this crossover shirt, and we were thrilled he asked us to help make it happen.
Get your Buffy Earper shirt here, or if you’re in the EU, order it here!
Kevin will be starting a project after Season 2 of Wynonna Earp to rewatch Buffy and discuss its connection to Wynonna. Read all about it here.
