Nuns With Guns Hoodie  
Today I got my Nuns With Guns hoodie in the mail.  I squeed like a 5 year old when I saw the package. When I opened it, I knew right away that it wasn't the same as Kristen's.

My problem with the hoodie...

I don't have a problem with the price because I was told it is American Apparel. I wear AA like it is my job, so I understood why it was priced that way. But, why was I charged $9.00 UPS shipping when it was shipped by USPS priority mail for $5.44?

On the site it had a picture of the logo and next to it a paparazzi photo of Kristen wearing the hoodie. When I saw that, I assumed it was the EXACT same one. Meaning the material and logo was the same. Kristen's hoodie is faded because she has worn is so many times (understandable) but the material on her hoodie is much thicker than the one I received. The material on my hoodie is very very thin and not sweatshirt like at all.  I also noticed that their are some slight differences with the logo. It is possible that Kristen's is so worn that the border just peeled off or faded. I got an XL cause I didn't want to order one and have it be too small. I am sure that Kristen wears a S or M so her logo is bigger on her sweatshirt. I am guessing that is why mine is so small

Not sure if I am going to keep it. Apparently they don't take returns. This whole thing was misleading. They promoted it by using Kristen's picture so I expected the same product. I wear AA so I know they make thick sweatshirts. I just wished they made it clear that it was NOT the same sweatshirt.

i was thinking the same thing when i got mine, how thin it was. i got a M so my logo on the back isn't AS small but it still looks smaller than its supposed to.

when I got my "delicious vinyl" tshirt i was like JUMPING and Fangirling a LOT so I know the feeling xD it seemed impossible to have a tshirt like Kristen here in Portugal but afterall now i have it and i love it like it was made of diamonds xD

it's a shame they misleaded all of you who ordered the hoodie --' i would "die" to have that hoodie but now I'm happy i didn't order it :S

mad
I feel like I was ripped off. As soon as I saw the package I knew there was no way a sweater was in it. EC Star was very misleading. I wanted that sweater because I liked how it looked on Kristen. Its thick with a silver zipper. EC star advertised it with showing a paparazzi pic of her sweater. But then to sell something completely different? its maddening.

I would want them to do another run but if they do they need to do it right. It doesn't matter if its summer or if the real sweater would cost $60. People want what they see.

Sorry that the hoodie sucked. I heard from a lot of people that the remake wasn´t as good as the original.

The shipping thing is a total rip off they told me shipping would be $60,- due to the weight but I shipped a jacket once (probably twice as heavy) for half of that.
