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.

This quote is perfect for so many reasons. Even if you’re not a huge booknerd, it still has meaning. The full quote comes from Cassandra Clare’s book Clockwork Princess.

During my undergraduate years in college, I read Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House. To this day, it’s probably one of my favorite plays. Without giving away any spoilers, A Doll’s House was quite controversial when it debuted in 1879 because the female lead, Nora, made a life-changing decision that seemed to spit in the face of typical gender roles of the time. This T-shirt is created from the classical text. You can actually read it!

I’m a bad booknerd, in the sense that I rarely go to libraries. To be fair, I think I’m doing libraries everywhere a favor—because much like with movie rentals, I can never seem to return items that I borrow. I also like giving friends old copies of books that I love—in part because I hope they’ll enjoy it as much as I did but also as an excuse to buy a new copy. But if you’re a proud library-card-holding book lover, this T-shirt comes with a library stamp graphic that you’re sure to love.
