Halloween is fast approaching and so we are going to start reviewing great Halloween costumes and so this time we are looking at Creepy Frankenstein t-shirts and stuff. Iconic during the Halloween Festival and a true classic when it comes to horror in general. We have looked at 3 shirt designs. If you want to see some of our Halloween inspirations you can find some in our Halloween section.
We found this one on the Blog Of Frankenstein and think it is pretty good. Frankenstein’s monster was in many ways the original zombie and the colour in this mask looks just like the decaying flesh you would expect. So we give this one 8 out of 10 for realism
Frankenstein Shirt with moving Eyes
Next up is this totally new dress down concept of a Frankenstein t-shirt with moving eyes. The eyes are behind a pair of EL glasses that light up. This not only makes the shirt come to life it also gives it a contemporary feel. There is definitely nothing like it on the net anywhere else. A great idea if you are going to a Halloween party but don’t want to wrap yourself up on toilet roll.
Full Frankenstein Costume.
Finally we go to the full size costume. In this case we vote for the adult Frankenstein Costume from halloweencostumes.com It’s a function costume that has both impact and at the same time is reasonably priced. Although you will need some green paint for your skin which I am sure they supply separately.

Fashion trends are really changing and we are seeing a huge interest in clothing which lights up. There are various technologies for this, LED being one. However electroluminescence still seems to be the technology of choice for “tech togs” like our t-shirts.
Fergie’s dress that lights up
The Black Eyed Peas are famous for the way they embrace wearable technology and technology and fashion. In fact Will.I.Am is said to be passionate about this. Just look at Fergie’s dress which lights up at the Billboard Awards in 2011. In fact Flashwear even supplied the shirt Fergie’s wore in Boom Boom Pow video. If you want to get one of these you can here.
JLS illuminating Costumes
Just like the “Peas” JLS are fond of their wearable tech. Their stage performances are bright, flashy and eye catching with the use of LED chest plates. Of course, if it is an illuminated chest you want then look no further than the Raver T-shirt that lights up to music.
At Flashwear we are dead keen on fashion technology and you will see in the coming month our products will reflect this. And we are not the only ones. The team at Ecouterre have been following this trend for some time. Look at the Vega Wang’s costumes designed for TRON3. They use the same technology as we do. They really are out of this world

At Flashwear we see ourselves as early innovators in wearble technology. We were the business who 1st started putting illumination on clothing in a serious way. Out range of t-qualiser shirts are still very popular the world over. In fact many people email us and say things like – are you the guys that sell those flashing shirts at Universal Studios
So, where do we think the new hot products are?
Sports Visor for Atheletes
What about the Screeneye X sports visor. It records all your athletic activity; speed, distance, heart rate, lap time etc and displays it on a screen in front of you. All sent to the visor via radio linked sensors on the body. And if wearing some technology on your head is your thing you might want to look at the LED light cap which has a solar powered visor. Perfect for evening activities like fishing etc.
These cool wrist watches from Pebble Technology use e-paper and run various apps linking it to an iphone. Its a computer for your wrister and can be seen in bright sunshine. Or you might be interested in our Spy Watch which is a watch that records video and audio digitally.
Pet Finder Technology
The SticknFind pet finder is a little device that have a bluetooth chip. Using an app on your phone you can see where you cat or dog is within 200m. But if you want to go considerably more “low tech” you might want to try an LED collar for you dog. Perfect for those long dark winter nights.
