Human Centipede Ouroboros Fleece Hat

I don’t really need to say much about this particular item. I’ll let the photos and product description do the talking.

And if you haven’t seen Human Centipede or Human Centipede 2 then count yourself lucky. If you feel the urge, you can always pick up a copy from Amazon.

For those with a twisted sense of humor (or are just twisted), it’s a Human Centipede Fleece Hat (with earflaps!). Although, since this is an unbroken chain of Human Centipede…technically it’s a Human Centipede Ouroboros…for that extra touch of “OMGZ WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?!?!”

The hat is made of plush soft fleece with just enough stretch to fit snuggly on your head to keep the winter winds out (and your sick brain warm…heh). Hat is machine washable.

The hat base is available in additional colors, just make a note of the color you would like, when ordering. The human centipede is available in flesh (as shown) or white. The GI tract is in red ric rac, but can be made in custom colors upon request.

The human Centipede Ouroboros Fleece Hat is available now from The Little Asian Sweat Shop for $55. She also has a really cool The Little Asian Sweat Shop blog which you should checkout!

8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt

Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day T-Shirt? This 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt might be just what you’re looking for you, especially if you and your significant other loves video games. When the both of you are wearing this interactive tee and within hugging distance then all six pixelated hearts will light up. Likewise, when apart, your heart level will drop down to just two and a half hearts. Awww, how cute.

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero… you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we’ve determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don’t understand? Well luckily for you we’ve created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.

Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

The 8-Bit Dynamic Life T-Shirt is available now from ThinkGeek for $17.99.

The Unofficial Duck Hunt Tie

How I wish this tie existed for me to purchase. In fact, only one of these custom ties designed by Maya Pixelskaya exist and it recently sold on eBay for $160.87. It’s so fun! I would totally wear this tie to lecture. A university professor wearing a tie featuring one of his favorite childhood games, Duck Hunt. Can’t go wrong. Hmmm, she made one. Maybe I can make one too?

The Unofficial Duck Hunt Tie is NOT available for sale, unless, you decide to track down the eBay winner and threaten to shoot hit ducks.

Co-Tee TV Episode 89: Mad Cow, Dead Puppies, and Lotsa Swag

Coty’s Thoughts:

Mad Cow Logo Tee by Mad Cow. Pros: Right away, I was impressed with the package that Mad Cow sent me, even before I saw the T-Shirt. The Mad Cow packaging is very neat and goes very well with their “cow” theme. They decided to go with a milk box for their T-Shirt packaging! It seems obvious for a brand whose theme is cows, but, to actually go forward with such a crazy idea is very cool. When you rip open the milk box, you’ll find your Mad Cow tee neatly rolled and waiting for you.

I received the Mad Cow Logo Tee to review and couldn’t be happier. I’m a sucker for logo tees and the Mad Cow logo is fun, simple, and somewhat curious. Curious in that I’ve already had a few people ask me what the cow was and what brand I was wearing. They used an Anvil blank which had a nice premium style fit. The fabric was also nice and soft.

Some of the T-Shirt details include a custom neck tag and tag on the lower left seam of the T-Shirt. Both are excellent additions and really add to the quality feel of the T-Shirt. You’ll also find a custom hang tag, which is neatly presented on hard cardboard stock  and not flimsy paper stock like other brands. The QR code on the back is also a fun addition to the hang tag and a great way to engage your audience and get them to visit your website.

Cons: The Mad Cow packaging was stellar and well thought out and the product had a nice build with a lot of custom elements. The only issue I had (and I had to dig deep for this one) was with the “registered trademark” symbol [®] on the front of the tee. I know it’s there for legal purposes but I tend to favor tees that bypass this. Needless to say, the Mac Cow logo tee was a very well rounded T-Shirt with great packaging.

Price: $20.00.

Dead Puppies Logo Tee by Dead Puppies Clothing. Pros: The Dead Puppies Logo Tee features a bright teal outline print on a black T-Shirt. The logo definitely pops out of the pitch black tee. The tee is also tagless, which is great for those of you who cut them off anyway. Instead of a tag, you have a screen printed neck label instead. Another great feature of this T-Shirt is the custom DP embroidered tag on the lower left hem of the T-Shirt. The label is very subtle, with just the white lettering popping out. On the back of the tee you’ll find the initials DP.

The product itself, the Dead Puppies T-Shirt, is flawless. The shirt feels great and you can tell that a lot of thought went into the tiny details. I’d love to see the logo used in different ways for future products – maybe some parody tees?

Dead Puppies also included two other products in the package that they sent me, including their Wayfarer styled sunglasses and their blue Straight Jacket watch. Seriously, it’s like they read my mind before they sent this package. I’m a sucker for wayfarers and actually have a few Ray Bans. The blue Dead Puppies sunglasses don’t have the same build quality of my Ray Bans, but, they feel good and fit great. And, they’re like 75% cheaper than a pair of expensive Ray Bans – count me in. They also come with a nice pouch for when you’re not wearing the sunglasses. The logo is printed on both sides of the shades, I kind of wish that the logo was a separate metal or hard plastic emblem affixed to the shades. Other than that, for $12, you really can’t go wrong.

The final part of the swag pack that Dead Puppies Clothing sent me was their Straight Jacket blue watch. I was definitely most excited when I saw this item for the first time. I’ve actually been wanting to pick up a similar styled watch. The watch looks good and feels good when worn. At first, I didn’t notice an obvious Dead Puppies branding on the watch, however, when I took a closer look at the face I did notice the DP initials. This is awesome – no obvious branding, instead, they let the product speak for itself. Very nice. It also comes in a snazzy box with a little pillow to protect the watch. Imagine if the rest of the packing was just as nice.

Cons: Everything about the products was stellar. I definitely said “wow” more than a few times when seeing the products for the first time. The only let down was the packaging. The products are so great that I kind of wish that the packaging was just as good.

The King of Crime: Il Retorno Di Teschio Di Morto

I’ve just been introduced to Fistful Apparel and count me impressed. They’ve got a wide selection of T-Shirts inspired by cult and genre cinema. The first thing that I thought when I saw these T-Shirts was “wow, if Quentin Tarantino were to start a T-shirt line then it would probably look something like this.”

The Fistful Apparel line is wild, eccentric, and out there. WILD. ECCENTRIC. OUT THERE. And I love it. The first two items that caught my eye were the ‘Il retorno di teschio di morto’ T-Shirt and the King of Crimes hoodie. They’re both black with a pure yellow design. The artwork simply jumps out in both and has that ZOMG appeal. If you like in your face design then get these two items.

Be on the lookout for future Fistful Apparel T-Shirts on this blog. I’m a new fan.

The ‘Il retorno di teschio di morto’ T-Shirt is sold out (good luck trying to find that one), but the King of Crimes hoodie is still available for sale at the Fistful Apparel online shop for $35.
