How do conspiracy theorists dress? How should they dress?
I suspect people who follow the likes of Alex Jones and David Icke are more likely to dress noticeably kooky. However, most conspiracy theorists probably dress similar to non-believers (who often dress kooky themselves).
Conspiratorial insignia can definitely have a cool factor, though it’s a bit of a balancing act. Does that pyramid and all-seeing eye represent a kook, a conspiracy theorist with a sense of humor, or a conspiracy analyst who really understands the meaning behind the symbols?
Of course, you also have to consider the environment. “I love conspiracy” badges work great in some locations, not so great in others.
It helps if you know enough about the subject to do battle with hecklers, though a really classy conspiracy badge may actually be a source of envy.
If you want to purchase an item that includes a URL, make sure you research the URL first. Unfortunately, there are very, very few quality conspiracy websites. My first choice is www.conspiracy1.com followed by www.conspiratalk.com.
Diving In …
These are the online stores ConspiraShop is currently doing business with.
All of the designs featured on the Designs page have been published to both RedBubble and Zazzle. Both sites feature options that allow you to place a design on you like on a variety of merchandise. However, RedBubble is easier to set up, so it may be the better choice in terms of variety.
On the other hand, Zazzle has some more advanced features that merit attention. The eleven designs below were created for Zazzle and can be found only there. Each one has a design on both the front and the back. Each image and block of text can be deleted. The text can also be modified.
Below are pictures of some items designed by ConspiraShop using some of the many Designs in its library. Click on an image to see that design on Zazzle’s site. If you’re looking for something featuring a particular design, or if you’d like to make a special request, please contact me.
Note: The image below features two blocks of text. I created a separate block for “ME,” so that I could style it separately.
