Literary Paraphernalia: Wearable Shakespeare

It’s no secret – I’m a fan of Shakespeare. And April is a special month for Shakespeare fans. April 23rd, 1616 is the day Shakespeare passed away. His final resting place is Stratford-Upon-Avon in the United Kingdom. Instead of mourning for someone we lost almost 400 years ago, I instead want to celebrate the work of his life. For the month of April, all of the Literary Paraphernalia posts will be Shakespeare themed in order to honor his memory and his work. Today’s post is all about wearable Shakespeare gear from Etsy.Com.

Hamlet Scarf

To be or not to be…cold. You don’t have to be with this.

Shakespeare Zombie Tank

What better way to celebrate Shakespeare’s death than to imagine what he’d be like if he were a zombie?

Ophelia Skirt

This skirt is the painting Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais, inspired by Ophelia’s death in Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.

Hamlet “No” Quote T-Shirt

Well, that’s oddly specific. It’s also a pretty cool t-shirt.

Shakespeare Hoodie

Do you love Shakespeare? This eco-friendly hoodie is like a nice, warm, embrace from the long dead Bard whenever you feel cold. I don’t know if that sentence is a very good selling point. I’m not in sales. I’m in blogs.

Shakespeare Onesie

Babies do that. I think. I’m pretty sure.

Romeo and Juliet Scarf

Yet another beautiful wrap to keep you warm or to just look awesome in.

Macbeth T-Shirt

It almost looks like an Edgar Allen Poe shirt, but then it’s not.

King Lear Scarf

If they weren’t already fools and madmen at the get-go.

Super Cool Bonus Item – A Hamlet Umbrella

I don’t know if I’d ever use this in the rain. I would just keep it inside and stare at it. It’s so damn pretty.
