Look out! There’s a loco, high flying, masked Luchador about to land a Hurricanrana on your face!
Well, that’s the impression I get from the stylized ‘El Luchador T-Shirt’ from the creative crew at Wikkd Heir Clothing.
Wikkd Heir was founded one night while the guys were having a few drinks at the Flying Saucer Emporium in Austin, Texas. Their desire was to create a clothing line for alternative people, alternative minds – to create a clothing line that appealed to people that seek unique and fun designs. Wikkd Heir have an array of designers from all over (including California, Indiana, Texas, Mexico, England, France, and Bulgaria) collaborating to produce the unique designs you’ll find in their online store.
Our feature design today from Wikkd Heir (as pictured above) is the El Luchador t-shirt. Inspired by the Lucha Libre wrestling phenomenon, a form of professional wrestling that was developed in Mexico, and other Spanish-speaking countries. It is characterized by colorful masks, rapid sequences of holds and manoeuvres, as well as high-flying manoeuvres, some of which have been adopted in the U.S. The wearing of masks has developed special significance, and matches are sometimes contested in which the loser must permanently remove his mask, which is a wager with a high degree of weight attached. Lucha Libre wrestlers are known as Luchadores.
This little guy appears both cute and crazy, we’re sure he’d put up quite a fight! The three color print works well and the size of the design seems perfect for the tee: it’s bold, colorful and makes an impression.
Shipping: Delivery only in U.S. and Canada (Worldwide coming this summer)
