Oh My Goth: Clay Graham Art Unboxing

It would seem that the PopHorror enamel pin addiction is getting worse, and why wouldn’t it with amazing pin creators out there in the horror and gaming art world? You have seen our unboxing of Nerdpins and Pixel Elixir, but this group of amazing enamel comes from an artist called Clay Graham. With hilarious pins from pop culture, video games and more, there is a lot to choose from. If enamel pins aren’t your thing, he makes shirts, too. Don’t take my word for it. Check out the video of our Clay Graham Art unboxing and then continue on for more info!

There was a lot to unpack (literally) in the video. I have to say, as awesome as those pins are, the shirts that were included were pretty amazing as well. But what are we waiting for? Let’s go over what we unboxed!

I have to say, as soon as I saw this shirt on the Clay Graham Art website, I laughed way too hard not to want to review it. Sometimes, there are just shirts that make your day, and this is one of them. While there are amazing shirts, like a Fallout-themed Brahmin Noodle shirt, this one will really brighten your day. The shirt is a nice deep black and the cotton is not scratchy. The print is pretty thick but not uncomfortable, and you aren’t able to feel it from the inside. This goth-y Mike Tyson has quickly become one of my favorite shirts.

I LOVE David Bowie, so much so that I put his work permanently on my body. If you aren’t ready for the permanent fandom, there is always clothing. This long sleeve Labyrinth shirt comes in black and white and is COMFORTABLE. The is an XL, and it fits perfectly. The print is solid but thin, so you don’t feel it on the inside. Clay Graham Art is killing it with their t-shirts, and if you think the ones I’ve unboxed were cool, you have to check out his whole line of other Fallout-inspired shirts.

Let’s get into the pins, which were a damn delight.

You’ve heard of shopaholic and a chocoholic but have you ever heard of a chopaholic? Here we have three pins in three variations. The think what I love the most about the Clay Graham Art enamel pins is the fact the rubber backings of each pin matches the pin itself. It’s the little things. I received the Chopaholic pin in green, red glitter and red. I love these pin! They remind me of the old school, backwoods slashers.

Tunnel Snakes rule! Here we have two Gangs of the Wasteland pins. There are three total in the line – we have Tunnel Snakes and Atom Cats. The Tunnel Snakes are a greaser gang that appears in Fallout 3, and the Atom Cats are a gang dedicated to the use of power armor from Fallout 4. As you can see by the backdrop, I am a little partial to the Tunnel Snakes, but as a fan of Fallout, I love it all. These are a great add to any gamer’s pin collection.

If you thought we were done with the Fallout pins, you were be wrong. These are my favorite themed pins that Clay Graham Art had because of their simplicity. When you are playing the game, trying to sneak up on an enemy, get around a raider’s hideout or clear an area of super mutants, your Pip-boy will alert you if you have been detected, and these are the messages that it sends. I think I may use this to reflect my mood on bad days.

If you are like me, then you were raised on RPGs like Dungeon Hack, Baldur’s Gate and Champions of Norrath. In those games, I was always a character that used some form of magic, especially in Dungeon Hack (half-elf mage, at your service). That’s what these Spell Ya Later pins remind me of. It’s the good old days of RPGs. Although, for some, you may get the Spellman vibe off of it. Either way, I dig both variations of this wicked magical pin.

Here we have the newest pin on the Clay Graham Art website. I present to you… Air Samus! This is a great mashup and perfect for vintage collectors. And lest we forget the feeling of standing at the arcade and spending all of our money on games, we also have the Button Masher pin, a great one for those who are wanting a bit of nostalgia to carry with them.

E.V.I.L. Every villain is lemons. I have been watching Spongebob Squarepants since it started in 1999, and this was one of the episodes that wedged itself into my brain the most. The group of evil superheroes opposite Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy created a group called E.V.I.L. On an odd day, I’ll still mention this episode. If you like Spongebob, there are many classic moments in pin form for you to collect.

The final pin to review is a Bioshock-themed enamel. I adore this pin for the fact that, unless you have played the game, you may not even know where it is from. Now, to avoid spoilers, I won’t go into the details on this phrase, but I do love the simplicity of this pin.

Regarding all of the pins, the quality is awesome. They are all double-backed to prevent spinning. There is no bleeding in the paint, and they aren’t too heavy but are solid.

That’s it for Clay Graham Art! A huge thank you to Clay for sending this to us. I am SUPER pleased with these products. The shirt’s decals survived a heat washing, the pins are great quality, and there’s a level of humor in them that gamers and fans will appreciate. There are a lot more pins and shirts, bags and even shoes that he has to offer, and I wish I could have shown them all to you. You can, however, see them at his Etsy page. If you go shop for yourself, you can support an artist to keep bringing fun fandom to people’s lives. Keep an eye on PopHorror, because you know I always have something cool to show you guys!
