Frankly, I’m an idiot. When I bought this t-shirt, I bought it because I got a feeling of “gee whiz, it’s the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz but he’s a zombie now!”. It wasn’t until a couple of weeks later that I realised “oh… in the books he wanted brains, didn’t he? Oh, that’s kind of funny”.
So yeah, like I said – idiot.
The thing I like most about this shirt, and which isn’t obvious from the photos on Busted Tee’s site, is the fine detail of the scarecrow. If you look closely at the image above you’ll see very thin lines of dark brown around the bright red of zombie-scarecrow’s eyes, and light green detailing around the tufts of corn protruding from his clothes. It’s scratchy, but it’s there and I kind of like it.
