Oracle Series: ‘Chicken Butt’ T-shirt and a giveaway

November 25, 2015

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Winner: Lucky #9 Michelle from New Jersey!

So just to add another glitch in this T-shirt launch week, the design I intended to release today has disappeared from Amazon. Yep. It’s been there for over two weeks all ready to go and now it is gone. The helpful people at Amazon Merch are looking into the issue, so hopefully it will be available by Saturday. Or I’ll have to re-upload, not sure yet.

So … we are out of order then. Skipping over to the Oracle Series.

… *SPOILER ALERT* … … *SPOILER ALERT* …… *SPOILER ALERT* …

This is Elizabeth’s and my interpretation of the ‘Chicken Butt’ T-shirt that Kandy wears to visit Rochelle and Beau in I See You (Oracle 2).

Beau stopped a few feet away from Kandy. She eyed him but didn’t change her stance. She turned to look at me, dropped her folded arms, and nodded. “Oracle.”

I swallowed. “Kandy.”

Her goldenrod T-shirt was printed with a picture of a chicken and the question, ‘Guess What?’ in green lettering. A red arrow was pointed to the chicken’s back end. Someone had used a black fabric marker to add a second arrow that pointed to an additional squiggle of black just behind the chicken.

Kandy also wore three-inch-wide gold cuffs on either wrist. These were inscribed with symbols and edged with hundreds of what looked like tiny diamonds. They were like something that belonged in ancient Greece, not on the skinny, muscled arms of a werewolf.

“I don’t get it,” I said, with a nod toward her T-shirt.

Kandy’s grin widened. “The shirt was a gift from the dowser, but it needed a little something.”

“Chicken butt,” Beau said. “Guess what, chicken butt?” His arms were loose at his sides, but he’d widened his stance as if he was expecting to be attacked.

“Guess what, chicken shit?” Kandy added. Her answer was full of laughter that was more threatening than joyful.

– I See You (Oracle 2)

I made the ‘Chicken Butt’ T-shirts available in black printing as well as white printing in the maximum colours I was allowed by the retailer (five). They are printed on fitted American Apparel T-shirts and THEY FIT SMALL!! Elizabeth is wearing an XL in the picture, and she usually wears a medium. I knew this about the American Apparel T-shirts (I also wear an XL) but I really like the fabric and the flattering fit. The site suggests going up a size – based on their sizing chart I’m a large – so please check the sizing

The T-shirts are available at Amazon.com (via Amazon Merch), shipping to over 75 countries with taxes and duties added at check-out but before you purchase. They aren’t currently available at any of the other Amazon stores because they’re printed in the USA.

Also there is one more T-shirt design to come, so you may wish to hold off any purchases until you’ve seen them all. 😀

    My favorite Kandy moment is when she eats her first cupcake- it’s friendship with first taste!

    My favorite Kandy scene is when Jade calls her from Ketts private jet. And basically the first thing she says is “I’m on my way.” She doesn’t question it, she just knows Jade needs her. She’s just, pure awesomeness 🙂

    Kandy’s belated birthday, the sweet moment between them when they stop to hug after jade gets back. Kandy opens up a bit. I hope I have a female friend like her one day. I’m 32 and still hoping! Husbands are great but friendship like theirs is special

      Entry #3 – I love that moment. “It was like being held — carefully — by steel bands.”

    There are so many great Kandy moments. One favorite is when Jade freaks out over Kandy’s post-transformation hair not being green.

    So many to choose from….but I like the dance scene when kandy jade and Hudson meet and dance. 😄

    My favorite kandy moment was when she chose to stay with jade instead of going with the wolves. I knew that will be Jade’s best friend and protector. And then when she got the cuffs. I like how she was like she can’t wear them with everything. And then kandy’s bday cups part was a good one too. I have a few

    When Jade sees Kandy for the first time after she turns back from a wolf. Jade is freaking out about her hair and Kandy has to stop to explain before they can move on

    My favorite Kandy moments surround her hair. Beautiful and green. Lol.

    Memorable Kandy moments have been her serious and apprciative encounters with food, but specifically with sweets. My kind of girl!

    My favorite Kandy moment is from Dowser #2 when Kandy and Jade were in the back seat. Kandy was still in wolf form, snuggled next to Jade and nosed the chocolate bar to her. They shared some of the chocolate bar. Touching scene of them interacting with Kandy as a wolf.

    I love how Kandy is now giving Drake t-shirts like hers. 😊

    I love the scene in Dowser #2 after they were attacked by the skinwalkers when Kandy is in wolf form. You really get to see how close Jade and Kandy are with Kandy nosing Jade the chocolate bar and Jade petting Kandy. It’s a small exchange that speaks of a very strong bond. I love that.

      Lisa – Oracle 2 isn’t available until December 17th, so you haven’t had a chance to read it yet. 🙂 It is good to follow my blog … you get some rambling posts, mostly about chocolate, but then you don’t miss any giveaways!!

    Jade’s confusing over Kandy liking a guy. Loved Kandy’s reaction!

    “And … it’s not like you’re interested in that.”“In what, mating?”“Yeah.”“You think I never want to have kids?”“No … I mean, not with a guy.” Kandy bared her teeth at me in that nonsmile of hers. The one that informed me I was about to cross some line and she’d be glad to put me back in my place. “I thought … I mean …” Okay, I was confused. Kandy let me off the hook, sort of. “Just because I like human girls doesn’t mean I’d choose to mate with a female werewolf. God, no.” Kandy shuddered. “Can you imagine?”

    OMG I almost missed this, and I HAVE to win for my sister who has ALWAYS said “Guess What/Chicken Butt!”

    My favorite Kandy moment? Argh. From the moment Kandy came into the series at the club dancing with Jade and the other weres, I have loved Kandy!

    My favorite moment has got to be when Kandy realized those heavy gold cuffs were hers. That she would have to learn to use them, would have to be trained by a Dragon. It’s like she realized that she is a very important part of the whole picture, whereas before she just thought of herself as someone’s sidekick. Now she has to take herself seriously as well. I love the growth of this character!

    When Kandy shifts back and her hair is au natural and Jade freaks and Kandy has to explain that every time she shifts she has to dye it back to her shocking electric green lol

    I love Kandy. I like the scenes when she’s being herself most. Like any discussions about her green hair, or when they are discussing food, etc.

      Emily – Contest closed at 8 PST, sorry. I already ran the random number generator. 🙁

        I figured. Worth trying though!

      • November 27, 2015 10:00 PM

        Always worth trying. Sometimes I don’t jump on it. 😀
