I was born with tiger blood in my veins. As an event planner, I have to come up with clever swag for each event. Fortunately, I spent a good portion of my youth planning my own events (ok, ok. Keg parties.) Somewhere in between youth and adulthood, I started planning something in between. I used to have Julyoween every summer. I tried to trademark it, but unfortunately you can’t trademark parties. I’m dead serious. I really tried to trademark a party. In 2006, aka the “Summer of Whitney,” (quit your job, decide on where your life is going, spend your savings, party like a rockstar.) I decided to make Julyoween huge. For those of you that haven’t put it together yet, Julyoween is Halloween in July. I love dressing up so much that I need halloween twice a year. I had it at a local music club and it almost sold out the entire place. We had bands, a dj, games, etc. So I created t-shirts for prizes and actually managed to sell most of them as well. The best one:
I was so ahead of my time people. As a product of the 1990s with a sense of humor always borderline stupid, I created a whole “line” of shirts based on bands in the 90s. The Charlie Sheen shirt was fashioned after an old Rage Against the Machine album (single)cover. So I’m putting them back into rotation. I’m working on getting all of my shirts up on an etsy account, but if you’re interested in joining in on the Charlie Sheen bandwagon, you can start here:
Ah, self promotion at its best. I hope to have the shop completed by this weekend, so stay tuned.
