HEADS UP: Dilemma: The last days. YOU: bewitched, bothered and bewildered. US: elves at VEVLYN’S PEN are, of course, on the case. Practically every day through 24 Dec., we will introduce at least one or a series of products, items and brands that we believe is worthy of consideration as a holiday gift(s). Now, stop your fretting.

DRESSING up for the theater is no longer de rigueur, we know, but dressing is.
Two outfits – CafePress and Zazzle Apparel – offer theater-themed, customizable T-shirts that will look sharp under a neat blazer or classy sports jacket. Even the black-tie type can sport a T-shirt or a hoodie to rehearsals.

“Theatre It’s A Stage I’m Going Through” makes an apt statement for the theater buff. The shirts are handsomely stitched in 100 percent pre-shrunk cotton or in a 50-50 cotton-polyester blend in a crew neckline and comfortable standard fit and come in various colors including red, green and royal blue.

The hooded sweatshirt – hoodie – makes a statement, too. Among its features is a kangaroo pocket. Available in white and light gray, the hoodie also has a waistband. Its cuffs are ribbed and stretch to hold snugly to waist and wrists. (http://www.bit.ly/1zdbtL1)
Part of the fun of Zazzle Apparel T-shirts, aside from a certain competition, is that words and images can be added to them. Photo from Zazzle Apparel Web site.
Elsewhere, the drama queen (or king) may find the “theater vs theatre” debate interesting. The Zazzle Apparel T-shirts – also available in multiple colors – weigh in succinctly by crossing out the er and replacing it with an re. The artwork is is by designer, Dramatically Correct, which explains:
“Stage theatre is spelled with an 're' not an 'er'. For those theatre diehards who want to remind everyone that stage theatre is way more awesome than film.” (http://www.bit.ly/1vhXrqd).
A rather dramatic statement.
