Nothing like a shirt that reminds me of a dark tale right as I'm trying to get to bed. Thanks for keeping my insomnia firmly intact woot.

My favorite part of the write up:

“I really don’t like this much moral conflict before bed.”


Yet, we check for woot tees every night. So much daily moral conflict in the span of seconds, on some nights.

Why does a kid know the name of an anti-psychotic drug?

Edit: and it doesn't say what they had for dinner. Considering the earlier cannibalism that is worrying me.

This shirt really confuses me. Am I missing something?
What's up with the red string? Is the bird a believer in Kabbalah?

That's a really unhealthy root system. I'm surprised that tree hasn't uprooted yet.

Yikes! This kind of gives a different meaning to "and they lived happily ever after". Guess the Brothers Grimm really do deserve their dark reputation.

Oooh! I can't decide if this would look better on my chest or my wall. Does anyone have the link to the instructions to frame one of these? I know it was posted a few months ago, and I can't seem to find it

I didn't really notice the skeletal hands at the roots until after the write-up. Nice touch!

Let's see Disney get a hold of this fairy tale...

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

Have to love the timing. Woot does a shirt with red leaves while I watch #txfire burn around my great state.

Is it sad that I cheered when I first read The Little Mermaid and discovered she died at the end?

That being said, I love Grimm fairy tales.

Nice choice Woot! I love the color choices on this shirt and the way the blue flows.

Is that one of those birds from the Disney Jungle Book, sitting on the very dead tree? That's the first thing I thought of when I saw it...

Here are a couple of tutorials:

Instructables

And some retailers who sell t-shirt frames:

Michaels Crafts

Urban Outfitters

Amazon

There was a good thread on Woot about it some time ago, but I can't seem to find it. I'll keep looking.

AHA! found it: Shirt into Hangable Art.

Grimm, yes + darn creepy. Wow. Bird has a very determined waiting attitude amid the delicate blue greys of despair.

Thanks for the pick, Woot! So glad I could do my part to make sure this creepy tale gets out to the masses.

if you're not familiar with the tale, the shirt won't make much sense. the red ribbon is one of the gifts that is given to the bird for singing its' tale of woe

edit:oops I'm mistaken, it was red shoes not a red ribbon, haven't heard the story in years, sorry

wiki has a decent summary of the story found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Juniper_Tree_%28fairy_tale%29

I always loved "The Juniper Tree". I wasn't an emo kid. I just loved macabre stories.

"The Juniper Tree" might be the one fairy tale that is completely, utterly impossible for Disney to adapt. There's absolutely no wiggle room in the plot for anything resembling G-rated.

Rambling aside, this is the first tree shirt in a while that I can get behind. Well done, littleclyde!

I'm always curious to know in which Derby each Editors' Choice was originally entered - the same goes for Double-Take Derby winners. Would it be possible to add that information to the descriptions of these shirts, or is there a way I can find it without combing through dozens of past Derbies? I don't follow the Derbies very closely, but I think knowing the theme the artist had in mind when drawing a design would add to my appreciation of it.

This one was from fairy tale derby

I was so sad when this shirt didn't make it into the fog. I bugged everyone I knew with a woot account to vote for it in the derby. The Juniper Tree is my favorite horrible fairy tale about cannibalism and being crushed by a millstone; littleclyde has made this into a hauntingly elegant image.

I bought two. And am considering buying a third. This is by far my favorite design that I've seen on woot, and I hope it stays around for a long time.

Thanks! Took me a minute to see your post, as I was busy trying to *unsee* the scary link before I go to bed. :-o

Oh crap! WhywhyWHY did I click on that "scarier" link? Nice effect, freaked me the eff out. ::shudder:: I don't have to read kanji to get creeped out by that page. Whoof! (And I am also a big Grimm fan-- the stories are far better in the original versions!)

I don't suggest clicking on the "scarier" link... I should have known better.

If you figure out a way to "unsee" it, please let me know. My heart did something that I don't quite know how to explain and I'm pretty sure I lost at least a few hours of my life on that one.

Wow. That was ugly.

I screamed and slammed my laptop lid shut. Only, some of my fingers were still there. I nearly whizzed in my pants, busted my computer, and mangled my hand in the span of 2 seconds.

Yes. This. Both times with the animation... Nearly crawled up the back of my couch, especially the second time. Glad I'm alone, or I'd feel like a bigger wimp right now.

Yeah! Like a sucker I was all, "What's with it all being in Japanese?" so I fell for it and scrolled.

If I had been startled any worse, I would have been telling woot that they owed me a new office chair.

For those of you who looked at woot's "Scarier" link in the "This tells the world" section, I suggest starting with a dose of nyan cat followed up by massive LOLcat therapy.
