It’s one of the most beloved and often quoted movies of the 80s. It’s hard to believe that it only made double what it cost to produce. Thankfully, countless television and home video viewings, as well as a huge fan base has contributed to its longevity among lists of best films. It would be inconceivable to think that the tee shirt community wouldn’t want to offer up a spin on this pop culture storybook love. You could count on many six fingered hands the different designs that are out there.
So, of course, I jumped in with both feet and dog paddled. My original design was flagged as “potentially violating intellectual rights.” Frankly, it’s no different than any of the countless designs out there. The Content Usage Police appear to hunt and peck for designs to flag. They are never consistent across the board. In any case, I’m trying to sneak this one back in since it did sell a few items before it was pulled.
I took the concept of those warning signs you see at the beach for hazardous conditions and set it in the world of The Princess Bride giving you, “Fire Swamp Warnings”.
After that, I got into a repetitive mood of designs that I could make as a “Property of…” shirt. You know the kind with the XXL in the middle. So, as I went back and needed to further fulfill my geek tendencies towards The Princess Bride, I came up with Property of Florin Brute Squad. This is of course the task force assigned to clear out the thieves forest on the day of the Prince Humperdink's wedding to Buttercup. It’s been a modest seller but I thought it was cute when someone bought a onesie with the design on it. It's also available in my Zazzle store in a key chain as well as other products.
slighty more well known that this..."Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line."
Finally, I did a couple of those oval stickers like you see for locations in the film modeled after Imitation International Codes.
The Cliffs of Insanity are pretty treacherous. I don’t think you can get there by vehicle. In fact the only two ways known are to climb a rope or be harnessed to a giant, climbing a rope.
