The 12 Days of Geeks-Mas Day 10: Geek Chic
As we begin to wind down the 12 Days of Geeks-Mas we wanted to give you that some more ideas for those stocking stuffers for the nerds on your list who want to let the world know about their inner-geek… That’s right, I’m talking about that thing we all wear, Clothes!
Ya know, anyone can go to Target and pick up an Avengers T-Shirt these days, so its harder to “smell your own” so to say. Back in the 90’s if you saw someone wearing a Wolverine T-Shirt, you knew that they were into comics and could trust them, but now all that stuff has been licensed every way from Sunday. So at NYCC this year I met this chick with some awesome shoes! And when I asked her where she got them she told me that she makes them and sells them on Etsy through her company Cherry Haus Designs…. in case you don’t know, Etsy is the marketplace for many small crafty-like companies where they sell custom made goods. There are currently 3 shoes in her catalog; R2-D2, The Marauders Map, and an Asian-influenced Koi Design. But she can make any kind of custom shoes that you are interested in! So go ahead and get that Spidey fan a custom piece of clothing for them to rock out in and they’ll be the coolest kid in school!
There’s no doubt in my mind that Spidey never looked cooler than when he wore the black costume. Venom (at least at first) was one of his most interesting villains. Celebrate them both with this incredible hoody from Super Hero Stuff.
8 Bit Voltron Shirt
The 1980s seemed full of big robots, but Voltron was in a class by itself. This shirt redesigns Voltron as a cover for an 8 bit Nintendo game and in the process making it one of the greatest shirts ever. You can pick it up along with a ton of other cool stuff at Shirtoid’s website.
Out Of Print Clothing
Awhile back, I did an article spotlighting this website. You can pick up many t-shirts based on the cover jackets of classic fiction and children’s literature designs. Long live the nerds from Out Of Print Clothing.
Remember to come back tomorrow for The 12 Days of Geeks-Mas Day 11: Geeks in the House!
Seasons Greetings Nerds!
