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