Looking for a unique way to show your love for your fave celeb who’s passed into the next world? SKULLebrities just might have you covered. While their “Rest in Parody” motto might seem a tad cheeky, the living can rest assured that these shirts and stickers are born of genuine admiration and affection for the famous folks who have gone before us. Here’s the story of how they got started:
On June 25th 2009, the world lost a legend, a true fallen idol. You could not have grown up in the 80?s and not be inspired by his music, his moves or how he completely changed the music industry as we knew it. Michael-mania lived in all of us. To commemorate his life and celebrate his accomplishments, my cousin organized and coordinated an amazing tribute party that was truly “off the wall.” Everyone attending was asked to pay homage by dressing the part, and I immediately went online in search of something a little different that I could continue to wear long after the party was over. Luckily, I found a vintage shirt that was worn in the Beat It video…and it was my size. Unluckily, it never arrived! Screw it! I’ll make my own shirt. It’s what I do. The shirt received a lot of attention throughout the night and was the topic of many discussions…SKULLebrities was born. Born from death.
Ah, we love it when a non-plan comes together. Well done, SKULLebrities! Cuz when life gives you lemons, well, you have to make the best of it.
