Sleepy Dan has been emailing me for awhile about their shirts, so it’s about damn time I get around to posting something from them. They have a good number of shirts, but this homage to the classic Nintendo character, Bowser, is definitely my favorite. I love how they did the design and captured the 8-bit feel. Apparently more characters will be coming in the future, so I look forward to seeing those.
If you’re a big Nintendo/Bowser fan, you purchase this tribute for $26.00 from the Sleepy Dan store. All of Sleepy Dan’s shirts are limited edition runs, so once this bad boy sells out it’s gone forever. So basically, if you like it, buy it now. Also, if you want another cool Nintendo tee, check out this sweet Retired Mario t-shirt from 604 Republic that I posted about months ago.
Go Ape Shirts is at it again; and by “it”, I mean making really awesome t-shirts. Their latest offering, The Plumber’s Empire, delves into the much-loved world of Mario. The design depicts, in humorous and 8-bit stylized fashion, what Mario’s domain might look like on our very own planet Earth. I love both the concept and the execution–well done Go Ape Shirts! It’s also cool to check out where your home would lie on Mario’s map.
You can pick up this design for the fair price of $20.00 at the Go Ape Shirts store. It’s printed on American Apparel. Also, I apologize if this post is not written very good (sic). I know rambling abounds, and a few cliches decided to come along for the ride. However, I’m feeling fairly crappy right now, so the most elequent words are, perhaps, not flowing from my head that well. I’ll be back tomorrow with a vengeance, though!
I have to be honest, growing up I was totally a Playstation 1 kid (and then XBox, and then no video games), but…that doesn’t mean I can’t dig this new shirt from ReThink Clothing. It’s a simple shirt–just a one color rendering of a Nintendo cartridge. I think it looks great though. It’s kinda nerdy, but not weird nerdy (sorry if that offends! I mean it in the most loving way).
If you want to show your love for Nintendo, you can snag this design for $16.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (score!).
P.S. My roommates and I have a N64 hooked up to the TV in our basement, so Nintendo has finally become a part of my life.
My house has been engaging in quite a bit of Mario related action this semester, whether that be the Mario series itself, or Super Smash Bros. When smashing, Mario is one of my go to characters, as he’s a certified bad-ass. Thus, you can see why I was quite excited when I got an email from Sebastion of 604 Republic about one of their newest releases, Retired Plumber.
The shirt is damn near perfect. The concept, an old and retired Mario, is top-notch, and the execution of the design doesn’t disappoint. He looks just how I would picture Mario to look after spending his younger years gallivanting around jumping shells and smashing bricks. He’s certainly earned all those medals. To finish up my little string of praise, I also like how much his red hat pops out, it reminds me a bit of the red hat in the Life Aquatic shirt I posted awhile ago.
I love this design, and I hope you do too. If you fulfill my hopes, you can go buy it for $18.95 at 604 Republic, who have some more great designs which will be featured soon.
Original Suburban Gangster, that is. This shirt may not give you much street cred with gang bangers in a hood near you…but maybe if you hold the gun sideways then you’ll look a little more intimidating. Either way, this shirt is sure to remind people of the days when things were simpler and you could be a real O.G. from your living room couch.
Local Celebrity has super soft shirts (that’s pretty much all the commentary I have – I liked their description). Pick it up for $20 today, after that it’s up to $25. Check back for Local Celebrity coupons.
I don’t play a lot of video games anymore (I used to), but one that I will still break out occasionally is Defense of the Ancients (DotA). On a whim yesterday, I decided to see if there were any DotA shirts out there. Unsurprisingly (the game, or I guess mod? has a huge following), I found that there tons out there. So, if by chance you play DotA like me, you might want to check these out.
There’s a bunch (I mean TONS) more at Shirts of the Ancients. However, the guy is on vacation for now, so you’ll have to wait until he gets back to order.
