Oh, wait. This is Exactly what it looks like.

So I wore my Shiny Vampire Club t-shirt to the grocer today. It was its first time out of the house, and I felt a bit self conscious... thinking that, like, a girl with nearly black razored hair, lots of purple eyeliner and obvious tattoos wearing a vampire shirt would look, well, like a vampire groupie. the kind of girl that talks and thinks and reads about vampires obsessively, sometimes pretending her merlot is (gasp!) blood, and has licked a wound to remember if blood is tasty (its not.)... The kind of girl who would love to be "turned" by the right guy.... The kind of girl who is a "coven leader" in a vampire club... Then I was like, "Oh wait. This is exactly what it looks like.

There were some looks at the shirt, but that might have been more due to my lack of bra than the shirt's content. (what do you expect? Its a saturday...)

11 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I love this post, Alison.

I think we should make shirts that say something like, "This is what a vampire-obsessed, Twilight-adoring, blood-drinker-wannabe, Shiny Vampire Club member looks like."

The our shinyvampireclub.com on the back.

OME! That would make the best shirt ever!

NO, the best shirt evur would say 'Edward Cullen: Bringing Sexy back since 1918/1901'
THAT would be the most kickass shirt ever.
I noticed a couple of you coven leaders have last.fm profiles too, the next time you log out, you should make a new account, (call each other to share the password) and make an account for the shinyvampclub then load it here, make your own Twilight soundtrack^^

Alison, you are too funny. I feel that way with my "Bella for Vampire 08" bumpersticker. I really want to put it on my car- but, then I would look like some weird vampire fanatic....even though I am one.

Kari said...

Embrace your inner vampire obsession! It just makes life so much easier.

Yes Alison. You look like a normal girl. A normal, vamptabulous girl. ;)
