Where can I find this shirt?

Can someone tell me where I can find this shirt? No amount of Googling is helping... perhaps you recognize it? I think it's related to Bioshock-- a video game. Thanks y'all!

How I found it:

Put the image into TinEye.

Found a German link that in turn linked to the 2kgames T-shirt contest.

Found a jpeg of the design on the page with 'deadsucker.jpg' as the filename, and a reference to Threadless.

Searched Threadless for 'dead sucker.'

Oh, but I should mention: it's sold out.

I actually started from googling "Little Sister Bioshock T-shirt," ended up on a page of Google results that mentioned the Descent into Rapture Threadless contest in a blog entry, read the entry, determined that the shirt wasn't in the contest but was a general submission a couple weeks later, and was in the process of reverse-engineering the Threadless URL when Flib beat me to it. ;)

(I work for 2K Boston)

Nitor: I could have sworn we did a bulk-order for that shirt sometime around ship, I know I've seen people wear it within the past week.

I *really* (really really) doubt there would be any left, but I'll ask ops tomorrow just in case.

Threadless reprints old shirt designs all the time, so keep an eye out

Also, you can leave your email address and threadless will email you when/if it is reprinted.

ps: why is she wearing the gas mask?

Just checked with ops - we did place a bulk order for the design that won the Threadless Bioshock contest, but the dead sucker shirt was the runner-up.

Sorry, man.
