I imagine the things being said in each frame as follows:

"So do I just sit here and it takes my picture or--"
"Ah! What was that!?"
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHH! AHHH! AHHHHHHHH!"

Despite being slightly cash stapped, I laughed my head off when I saw this and had to order it. Congrats on making me buy my first Woot!Shirt in nearly a year.

Shouldn't there be NO picture of the vampire? What with him having no reflection and all......

The mirror is used to redirect what you see through the lens up to the eyepiece and focusing purposes. When you take a picture, the mirror flips up which then allows the light to pass through the lens and onto the film or sensor if you are using digital.

So yes, you can take a picture of a vampire (if they were real).

I'm kind of paraphrasing here from someone else, but the no reflection was from there being silver used in mirrors, film, etc. Vampires have that whole bad reaction to silver and whatnot that causing no reflection. For arguments sake, we can assume this is a digital camera (as most cameras are these days). With no silver, he'll show up.

It's the Blade version of vampires. Watch as Wesley Snipes' l.o.v.e* interest meets her tragic end in the morning sunlight.

Congrats, Spiritgreen! Clever shirt!

So the flash on that camera is balanced for 5600k?

Shouldn't the pictures not show him, since he is a vampire?

I would have preferred a vampire walking into a photo booth and a roll of empty picture frames coming out.

Placement is too high and would be cooler on a black or crimson colored shirt IMO.

i'm all for creativity but this one doesn't make any sense. I have yet to hear anything about 'light' killing vampires. At first glance its kinda funny, but after you think about it for more than 2 seconds its really dumb

Wow, I'm honored to have designed one of Woot's Halloween shirts! There were so many great designs, I didn't dare hope this would make the front page.

Thanks -so much- to everyone who supported and voted on Vampire Photo Booth. And to anyone concerned about the lore, yes these things are important, please be reassured that this is exactly the right kind of vampire, flashbulb and silver-free, digital photobooth to create this event. ^__^

I feel like I have seen this exact shirt in a derby before. Quite a clever design.

It has been a common theme of vampire literature for over a hundred years. Not sure how you could have missed it. Twilight is the only story I know of where light doesn't kill vampires.

This is the only shirt from this derby that not only would I wear, but I would wear it year-round. It really deserved to win. Good job.

Or even gray. Or something else. This color red will make me look pale and undead-ish myself.

Other than that this is an excellent design.

Did I miss something in science class where vampires burning on film also cause the filmstrip to light on fire as well? If so, what law is that?

Good off-center placement for this one. I expect that this shirt will find a place at many a monster mash his Halloween.

People need to relax with the nitpicks, it's perfectly reasonable to assume the vampire would appear in a digital photo (no mirror) and it's not uncommon in modern vampire literature for them to react to special UV lights the same way they do to sunlight (see Blade)

It's a UV photo booth vampire trap, vampire explodes, it's not really too much of a stretch for a funny tee shirt.

What perfects this design are the facial expressions. The best since an old Derby entry called 'Physics of the Old West' or something like that, with a steel-jawed sheriff's bullet ricocheting repeatedly until it struck the whiskered Bad Guy. Until this entry, that had the best expressions. This one tops that, however.

Congratulations, SG! I'll wear mine with pride on stage in NJ for our annual Halloween show.
