Karmaloop just put out a line of awesome Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark shirts, just in time for Halloween! The tees celebrate the notorious children's books by Alvin Schwartz and feature their haunting illustrations by Stephen Gammel. Each Scary Stories shirt is printed on "antique white" Alternative Apparel shirts in both a men and women's version.
The Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book series, published by HarperCollins, is a three-part scary stories series that was famously challenged in the 1990s by the American Library Association for its graphic violence and disturbing images. The Scary Stories collection celebrates American folklore of ghouls and ghosts, and these Scary Stories tees would make the perfect conversation piece for any wardrobe, especially in the Halloween season. Each shirt is a very limited run, and even features the corresponding Scary Stories tale printed on the inside of the shirt to stir your memory and inspire more Scary Stories this Halloween season.
Each illustration is notoriously graphic, and the Scary Stories they illustrate are truly frightening. Many children of the 1990s will remember these scary stories keeping them up at night. One of the most famous, 'The Red Spot,' is an American urban myth of a girl who discovers that the blemish on her face that appears to be growing rapidly is actually filled with spider eggs. At the conclusion of the story the boil opens, releasing hundreds of tiny spiders into her hot-water bath. These Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Tees are available at Karmaloop.
