Design our original, limited edition “Seizure Girl” t-shirt in honor of all the women we know who have survived, or died of pregnancy-related complications and help make UNEXPECTED, the documentary. Keep reading…there’s more!

Suggested Theme & Style

It is dark humor. We get that. We sometimes need to find things to laugh at – so the funnier the better – so that we can laugh through our tears.

Show us what you got! There are no restrictions on creativity, but designs should reflect an alignment and understanding of the overall unique vibe of Unexpected Project: frank, factual, dark, irreverent, but not completely inappropriate.


All design submissions will be reviewed by the UP team and the top ten posted on our website for an online vote! The design with the most votes wins!!


The winning artist will get $100 CASH!! And PRIZES!! A DVD or download of UNEXPECTED (the film), your name in lights (well, in the film credits, and on our website), YOUR design on our t-shirt and (yes) your own very own, limited edition Seizure Girl t-shirt!!


This contest is open to anyone around the world.  Please spread the word.

Where/when can I get a t-shirt??

You can order one in advance by emailing us at and putting “Reserve t-shirt” in the Subject Header. T-shirts will be $25 a pop and due to angel funding 100% of the proceeds go to UNEXPECTED!! It’s a win-win!

T-shirts will be ordered March 15th (as soon as the winning design is selected). We will update this with anticipated turnaround time shortly.
*Thanks to Lauren Ward Larsen for graciously allowing us to use the phrase, “Seizure Girl” for the purposes of this project. She coined the term in honor of Becky “Seizure Girl” Sloan.  Read Becky’s story here…

In the event we make a profit above and beyond filming costs on this slogan – we will donate a percentage to a nonprofit of Lauren’s choice, and regardless, Lauren and Becky get a free t-shirt.
