I really wasn’t sure anything would beat the awesome Gandalf v Balrog Christmas sweater or the WTF of the horror Junji Ito jumper but there’s an argument that this 3D T-Rex Christmas jumper does both.
Merch mania over? I thought I had made it through Black Cyber weekend, and we would settle down. No more temptations. But, despite the weirdness of this dinosaur sweater, I’m still tempted by it. Whyyy?
Let’s take a look. This isn’t a woolly jumper; it’s 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. It can be machine washed.
It’s sold as a standard fit unisex, so there’s a good chance it won’t fit most people well. However, in addition to “one size” in the Amazon size dropdown, there’s also Small and X-Small. X-Small is for chests of 32-34 inches and waistlines of 24-26 inches.
We’re told that the attachment uses velcro.
Also, it would be hard to wear a coat over this but perhaps that’s why we use velcro. Would that mean we come to work with dinosaur parts in a bag and adorn ourselves with them before the Christmas party? Who wouldn’t want to rock up at festive fun without a friendly second head sprouting from their chest and supplemental tail wagging behind?
The Unicorn surprise
Lastly, I have reason to believe a Unicorn version of this same sweater by Costume Agent exists, but (thankfully) can’t find it on Amazon. Phew.
Hat tip to Geeks Are Sexy for this lovely awfulness.
