If you can sing along to the Luz Clarita theme song, have María la del Barrio GIFS saved on your phone, and still have thoughts about the plot for Dos mujeres, un camino, you may just be a ’90s novela fan. And you’re also in luck because Tony Peralta has designed three tees specifically for you. Recently, the designer behind Peralta Project revealed that his shop is now selling these T-shirts dedicated to the three novelas he most remembers.

“Novelas reign supreme in every Latino household,” the Peralta Project’s site reads. “Growing up, my mother hijacked the living room remote control, and I didn’t think of changing the channel while her Novelas aired. You either joined in or if you were lucky enough, there was a 2nd TV set in the household – hopefully in your bedroom. The Bootleg Novela series is a homage to the novelas of the ’90s whose theme songs hold permanent real estate in my psyche.”

The shirts feature collages of different characters and some of the most iconic moments – the Maria la del Barrio tee, for example, shows the shock Nando feels after Soraya catches him kissing Alicia, aka Maldita Lisiada.

Each shirt comes in at $40. Cop them here.
