Look, we’re proud of our pop-culture passions. Not just those of us at Convention.Life. I’m talking about US: you, Convention.Lifers, and the rest of the pop culture convention-goers. We’re unapologetic and love what we love about this world. Nothing represents who we are better than a shirt that nails it. Nails that one obscure reference.

All designs have credits attributed to the artists in social postings to the signs on their convention booth. Think of Rob (x2) as curators. Wait, I got that wrong. Their tagline is, “The Cure for the Common Tee.”
I'm going on six shirts and three hats, below are my two favorites from the Robs. These are just a small sampling of what they offer. They’re always surprising us with new pieces at every convention. As for the Zombie’s design, it’s no longer available and I don’t think it will be coming back. That one is my, “I got this early in their career before they were cool” shirt. I mean, they’re still cool but I’m just saying, I knew them when...
