Whip it!

i watched the film Whip It! (with Ellen Page, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis) a few weeks ago and fell in love with the idea of roller derby and with the t-shirt Ellen Page wears. you know, the one with the zebras?

so after trawling through the internet, i finally found one on Ebay and it only took a few seconds to decide to buy. so. here it is, finally:

Zebra T-shirt, from the Chigago Field Museum, 1980

i am wearing it today and i am very happy.

i love zebras!!!

      That’d be great – I found one on on my first sweep of eBay – had no idea how lucky I’d been at the time!


  4. I designed this shirt in late 1970s –maybe early 80s on Captiva Island, Florida. OUr company was so small at that time the two owners printed it themselves all night long to fill one order. I don’t have any myself at this time. Ellen must have worn a child sized shirt. If it is the real thing it will say “Eckler” on it.

      I’ll have a look when I get home – it is an old shirt and posted from the USA – I’m stuck in hospital at the moment though. It’s a bloody great t-shirt though, my favourite still – so thank you!
