Asylum XIV Merchandise

Asylum XIV medals and T-shirts!

For the first time this year we are able to share pre-production images of the Asylum XIV merchandise items before they go on sale.

Once we have the 'real' items in hand we will of course add these to this page and elsewhere, including on Facebook and the Ticket Tailor ticketing site.



First up we have the Asylum XIV medal. Last year we went with a cicada as the main design element because it was Asylum XIII and some cicadas have a 13 year life cycle. 

Admittedly that was slightly obscure, so this year we have gone with an octopus instead - one of the most popular creatures in Steampunk art.

Of course we couldn't resist putting in a couple of references to the fact that it is Asylum XIV so the octopus is surrounded by a fourteen sided polygon and he's loooking at a woodlouse; we all knew woodlice had 14 legs, didn't we?

After seeing how beautifully the Halloween medals came out last year with a black bat on them, we are planning for the octopus to be green. 



After the success of last year's Asylum T-shirt and also the spoof Blue Plaque Trail around the Historic part of Lincoln, this year we are combining the two into a 'Blue Plaque' style T-shirt.  

As with the octopus medal we are excited to share the design and a mock-up of what the 'plaque' will look like on the chosen maroon background


As soon as the first batch of printed T-shirts arrives at MoS HQ we will share images and real-life measurements of the various size options.    




Supporting charity has always been an important element of the work of the MoS and every year through the generosity of the traders at Asylum and the enthusiasm of those able to come to the Dead Dog Party and bid in the auction we have raised considerable amounts of money for charity. 

We will be doing exactly the same again at the Dead Dog Party this year, but we recognise that not everyone can attend and we wanted to make something new available that people can buy to support this years chosen charities (last year we supported Water Aid, the Trussell Trust and Lend With Care).  

All proceeds from the MoS 2024 Charity pin will go to Charity. 

In future years we plan to change the pin colour so that over time the MoS charity pins will build up into a multi-coloured collection. 

And of course as with the Octopus medal and T-shirt, we will share photos of the actual pins once they arrive at MoS HQ.

Finally we have this year's Asylum patch which will be based on the design here. It features the same octopus as the medal. As with all the merch, once we have the 'real thing' in hand we will share photos. 

All of the above will be available to pre-order at the time you purchase wristbands and will then be available for collection at The Asylum.


There may be some surplus stock available to purchase at The Asylum, but that cannot be guaranteed and we may need to close sales closer to the event if it looks like demand is outstipping the finite numbers of merch items that we will have in hand at the time.
