Saturday was the big day. The day I had been looking forward to for some time now. So did Texas Teezilla deliver? Yep. I had a great time, I always do at these events. Over 36 brands gathered together at Quixotic in Deep Ellum to create the very first t-shirt expo known as Texas Teezilla. The expo was hosted by J from Lies and Filth and included DFW's newest and most creative t-shirt brands.
All the regulars were there: Sleepy Dan, The Good Child, Fresh Kaufee, Loyal KNG.... you get the picture. The vendor turn out was amazing. It was hard to tell that this was a first year expo.It was great to finally hang out with the big homie Sam from Kill Hubris. The venue was a decent size and ended up working well, even with the number of vendors. The crowd started out a little slow in the morning but quickly picked up. The crowd was nice and diverse. You could tell there were some fans of brands as well as "walk-ins." The atmosphere was kid friendly, I had my baby there for a while. I also saw a few other young kids as well as babies that stopped by. The DJs were awesome at keeping the energy up. There were times though, I wished the music wasn't so dominate. It was a little hard to just talk when you met someone. Overall, they did a great job. J held a raffle in which all the tee brands donated a tee to be raffled off for a dollar a ticket. All the money from the raffle went to help those in need from the recent wild fires. Some of the friends I invited won a tee in the raffle, so that was fun to see. Even my wife won a Lies and Filth cap!
I am really glad I got involved with this from the jump and I look forward to working with J for the next Teezilla. Big shout out to all the brands that made this event a success. I love it when Dallas comes together to show love. It was great seeing everyone again. There is already talks of doing this twice a year! Good luck to everyone with your brands, I wish all of you nothing but success. Hit us up for features and any thing else we can help you with. Now I will be the first to admit, I am HORRIBLE at remembering to take pictures during the good moments of parties, but at least this time I caught the b-boys in action. Enjoy the pics!
