Guest Post: Take Me Down To The Goblin City, Where The Faces Are Green And Far From Pretty!

Me – Ello!
You – Did you just say ‘Hello’?
Me – No, I said ‘ELLO!’, but that’s close enough! I’m Jade from The Style Rawr, fashion bloggers extraordinaire and fan girls of everything Truffle Shuffle, nice to meet you! I’d invite you to come inside to meet the missus but this isn’t my blog, and errr…. I’m not a blue haired, scarf wearing worm in 80’s epic movie Labyrinth!

As a HUGE Labyrinth fan (obvs), I was super excited when Truffle Shuffle asked me if I wanted to check out one of their exclusive Labyrinth T Shirts, the Ladies White You Remind Me Of The Babe Bowie Labyrinth T Shirt – £20, and it inspired me to play a little dress up, just like our teenage heroine Sarah!

SO, ahem . . . (checks lines) . . . Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the garden patio beyond the back kitchen to take back the child that you have stolen. For my pose is as strong as yours, and my style is as great…

YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME!! Yep, I have a tutu dress under the tee and I’m wearing purple DM’s, a fantasy world has no fashion rules (I’m actually a firm believer that wearing superhero or princess costumes should be obligatory everyday uniform for all children under 5!), right?!

Believe me, it took all my might not to snatch the neighbour’s Dulux dog and run around the patio marking out my progress with lipstick. I felt so mischievous in this tee, it brought out my inner adventurer! I have always ADORED everything about Labyrinth; the amazing soundtrack (I used to do the Chilly Down dance in the living room in the summer hols), the beautiful masquerade ball scenes, Ludo and the rocks – ahhhhhh, memories!

Annnnnnnd this is the part where I admit to harbouring a wierd crush on David Bowie as King Jareth, maybe it was the tra la la tights or the eyeshadow skillz I don’t know, but I’m pretty darn happy to have him on my chest 0:)

The tee itself is exactly what you would expect from Truffle Shuffle; quality cotton, a true to size fit (this is a ladies L) and a good print, plus the Labyrinth range is exclusive to them so if you see someone else wearing one, give them a little Truffle Shuffler wave and a wink 😉

Be sure to check out the other retro movie t shirts featuring Goonies, Star Wars, Marvel, Clueless, Grease and even more childhood faves at Truffle Shuffle, it’s officially awesome!

J – Who me? Nooooo, I’m just a worm!

My Top 5 Movie Tees

As you may imagine, when people find out I work at T-Shirt emporium TruffleShuffle.com, the first question I’m asked are which are my favourite designs.

Being a self confessed 80’s movie buff, I have a particular soft spot for our 80’s Movie T-Shirts so I couldn’t resist running down my top 5 for you.

Enjoy!

1. Dark Crystal Movie T-Shirts

Men's Black The Dark Crystal Skeksis T-Shirt £25.99
Men's Black The Dark Crystal Skeksis T-Shirt £25.99

Inspired of course by one of the best Jim Henson films of my childhood, this awesome The Dark Crystal design is a great way to remember the legendary 80’s fantasy flick that terrified and amazed in equal measures. One minute I’d be wide eyed in a world of beautiful fantasy and adventure and the next it would have me hiding behind my pillow from the Evil Skeksis, the bad guys of the film who looked like giant, skeletal crows who’d been dressed in rotting flesh. Imported especially from the US of A, not only do I love this because it pays homage to one of my childhood classics but also because it’s one of our rarer designs, only available in limited numbers so you’re unlikely to see anyone else walking down the street in the same tee as you.  Always a bonus.

2. Ghostbusters Movie T-Shirts

This Ghostbusters design is just so, so cool. You’ve got the ghost trap on the front and the Ecto-pack on the back so you’ll be ready to split just like a real ghostbuster.

Men's Don't Cross The Streams Ghostbusters T-Shirt from TruffleShuffle
Inspired by a Ghostbusting essential, The Proton Pack, the front of this tee features a technical drawing of Dr. Egon Spengler's now legendary invention and the back, one of the traps which they used to snare the little buggers. Topped off with two very important messages for any wannabe Ghostbuster, 'Don't cross the streams. (It would be bad.) and 'When the light is green, the trap is clean.'

The perfect tribute to the 1984 film and it’s eccentric New York City ghost-capturing heroes, I also love the fact that this tee was actually created by our in house design team so it’s exclusively available at TruffleShuffle.com. Who Ya Gonna Call?


3. Labyrinth Movie T-Shirts

Men's Ludo Friend Labyrinth T-Shirt from TruffleShuffle £20.00


In a nutshell, Labyrinth is my favourite film in the world. I must watch it at least once a month. Not only that but Ludo was always my favourite character, the big friendly beast who could call upon his friends “the rocks” to help him out in times of need and fight the Goblin kings Goblin army. An easy choice and a brilliant design which sums up the loveable Ludo perfectly – this is one of those tees which people always stop me in the street to appreciate too, always a good sign.

4. Gremlins Movie T-Shirts

Because who can argue?

Gizzy Is The Shizzy Gremlins T-Shirt from Sticks and Stones £18.99

Personally Gremlins 2 was always my favourite of the classic movie franchise. It was bigger, badder and funnier and kind of evolved The Gremlins to the next level. From spider and bat Gremlins to the reincarnation of Frank Sinatra as a Gremlin singing New York New York. JUST AWESOME.

You don’t tend to see too many Gremlins T-Shirts around either so I was dead chuffed when I spotted these on the shelves of Truffle Towers and purchased mine instantly – it’s a bargain too at just £18.99. Fits and feels great too (as do all our tees TBH)

5. Batman Movie T-Shirts

Ladies Batman Caped Costume T-Shirt £26.99


This cool tee is a great take on the batman costume design. Thanks to the nifty detachable cape, you can rock this top as a normal tee and when the bat signal is lit, simply reattach the cape and head out to fight crime (or use it as a subtle fancy dress costume if you prefer.)

Na na na na na na na na Batman!

Well that’s all for now folks, hope you enjoyed my very own movie T-Shirt hot picks!

Don’t forget though that this is just the teeniest taster of the huge range of amazing movie merch we now have available on the site (over 350 products and counting!)

As well as my top 5 movies, we’ve got T-Shirts, clothing, Accessories and Gifts inspired by tonnes of other classic cult movies from the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s as well as a few current favourites (Harry Potter T-Shirts anyone!)

From Back To The Future to Batman, The Goonies to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Star Wars to Top Gun, we’ve got all the classics covered making us the perfect place to indulge your inner movie buff.

Plump up those Cushions and get the popcorn popping fellow movie fans!

My favourite film in the world. I must watch this at least once a month. Ludo was always my favourite character. The big friendly beast who could call upon his friends “the rocks” to help him out in times of need and fight the Goblin kings Goblin army.
