Welcome to the amazingly astonishing 7th year Birthday of the fantastically fabulous site known as deviantART! 7 years old on August 7th of 2007! How lucky is that. We have dozens of events and contests all day long and the bulk of them themed around the number 7! Loads of prizes to win, tons of time to hop on dAmn and meet some new people as well! So, read on and see what is going down this August 7th and say Happy Birthday to all your fellow deviants old and new alike!

Here's to another 7 years! :lolly:

Watch For Last Chance "Easter Eggs" in the devWEAR Inventory!

We recently tore through the boxes in the deviantWEAR storage room and decided to clear out the leftovers from series' past. Almost all of our designs are 100% sold out, never to be reprinted again. But there are still a few shirts down there that have been set aside over the years. So if you had your heart set on something from a past series, this might be the last chance you'll ever have to purchase it. Stock will be posted at random throughout the day on the 7th so keep your eyes open or hang out in #shop for releases as they happen.
Hint: We're launching a webcam on the £deviantwear page that might offer a sneak peak of shirts that are about to be posted. So tune in and get your shopping carts ready!

And finally, the STORE IS STOCKED!!!!

You might notice that we've restocked all items that are currently for sale. If we've been sold out of your size check again. Its probably there for you now!
