The Dark Knight Light

This is an AWESOME T-Shirt! It’s from Shirt.Woot and was designed by Nathan W. Pyle. The design is simply called The Dark Knight, but it could have easily been called The Dark Knight Light! I think that would have been a much more witty name. This Batman glows in the dark!

If you want this one you better cop it now, it won’t be around for long, like mos other Shirt.Woot T-Shirts. You’re lucky that it’s even still available. The Dark Knight is available now from Shirt.Woot for $15.

Hello Nyan Cat! Rainbow, Rainbow!

Who knew that a a pop tart cat would lead to over 50 million views on YouTube. This age that we live in, unbelievable. And of course, you can help to quench its growth by purchasing a Nyan Cat T-Shirt from Snorg Tees. The shirt is called Cat + Pastry = Rainbow and is available now Snorg Tees for $14.95.

And now some Nyan Cat history. It all stared with a little comic by prguitarman on LOL-COMICS. The comic was then reblogged on Tumblr over 3000 times. And then it led to a viral YouTube video (see below). And as they say, the rest is history.

Via Know Your Meme: On April 5th, 2011, YouTuber saraj00n posted a video titled Nyan Cat[3], using comic artist prguitarman’s Pop Tart Cat animation set to the well-known Japanese Vocaloid song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya by Japanese artist Daniwell-P looping in the background, Although the song had been originally composed for Hatsune Miku to sing, The version used in the video was of the cover sung by the Utauloid Momo Momone.

QR Code + Rorschach = QRorschach

This is a fabolous T-Shirt from our friends at 604Republic. They’ve taken my favorite character from my favorite graphic novel and transformed him into part superhero / part QR code. Neat! And I even love the product description: “QRorschach’s Journal: October 12th, 1985. Tonight, my face turned into a QR code. I dare you to scan it.” Geeks all around the world should love this T-Shirt.

QRorschach is available now from 604Republic for $19.95.

Comic-Con 2011 Costume Spotting (Day 4)

Comic-Con 2011 is being held from July 21-24 this year and like last year, I’ll be costume spotting some of the best and most wacky costumes to be seen! I always get a kick at seeing what people decide to dress up as to Comic-Con. My favorite from Day 4 has got to be the candid photo of Captain America giving a a female friend a ride!

*All photos belong to their respective owners. I’ve provided links back to the original photos and links back to the photographers official website when possible.

Dude, Bro, Man…ParadeMaker

Oddly enough, I discovered this awesome tee by ParadeMaker from a discussion that I had on Twitter regarding me wanting some spanking new red socks. I love T-Shirts, but I also have a bountiful sock collection. I love myself a quirky pair of argyle printed socks and the occasional off print. Needless to say, ParadeMaker responded to my query and mentioned that ParadeMaker is working on making custom socks (hopefully in red).

Up to that point, I had never heard of ParadeMaker, so my curiosity got the best of me and I checked out their website link on their Twitter profile page (as I often do with people I have discussion with on Twitter). Lo and behold, they are purveyors of some pretty awesome, off-the-wall T-Shirts.

Dude, Bro, Man instantly grabbed my attention, and for good reason. I LOVED the goonies growing up (I think I watched that VHS to death). Not only that, but as an adult, I have a fond appreciation for pop art. And when I think of pop art, two artists come to mind: Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Dude, Bro, Man pays homage to my love of the Goonies and pop art!

Dude, Bro, Man is available now from ParadeMaker for $12.

Speaking of ParadeMaker, check out this video of them printing some tees!

Hipsters United: Mighty Fine Has Got You Covered

What if the uncanny X-Men were actually a bunch of uncanny hipsters?! Well, they’d probably consist of unruly hair, overgrown mustaches, really thick glasses and form fitting second hand clothing. Or, they’d look a lot like the Mighty Fine superhero hipsters featured below.

Here at Mighty Fine, we like to keep an eye on the latest trends in internet humor. (Or the OMG LULZ, if you will.) Having a healthy appreciation for comic book geekery, as many of you do, we found the recent rounds of “superhero hipster” memes to be pretty darn hilarious. Still, it got us to thinking… what if saving the world was actually the job of hipsters who also had a full slate of shopping for skinny jeans and arguing about the relative worth of Wilco’s last album?

I love the text featured below the Uncanny Hipsters tee, so fitting.

Use the Mighty Fine MyTee Shirt Creator to customize your hipster shirt today! I tried it out and the custom tees are priced at $25.

Co-Tee TV Episode 77: FFB Bam, SoillFu and Voltron

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear FFB Bam by Fur Face Boy and review Voltron FVR FRSH by SoillFu, an urban streetwear brand based out of Dallas, Texas.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod, iPhone or iPad by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Voltron FVR FRSH by SoillFu. Pros: The shirt features a custom neck tag and tag on the lower left seam. Cons: First off, the wrong size was sent to me so I could not try on the T-Shirt. I did notice a lot of stray markings on the tee. There were stray green markings on the front of the T-Shirt to both the left and right of the center Voltron design. Also, on the inside of the T-Shirt were even more stray brown markings. The sewing work on the custom tags were not done very good, a lot of stray thread  and uneven sewing (see image below). The neck area on the T-Shirt was quite dirty. Also, a quick inspection of the print of the design tells me that it had been previously washed because the ink looked faded, especially the black ink. And most alarming was the very odd odor of the T-Shirt. All of this leads me to conclude that the T-Shirt has been previously worn. I was not blown away by this product from Soillfu. All of this distracted me from the actual design, but even the design did not do it for me and would not be something that I would wear. Price: $24.00.

FFB Bam! by Fur Face Boy. Pros: Another excellent comic inspired T-Shirt from Fur Face Boy. The design itself is actually based on “Sweet Dreams Baby!” by pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein. This five-color print features a custom hang tag and neck tag, as well as a custom FFB tag on the left seam of the tee. As with all FFB tees, this shirt comes with FFB logo stickers and is packaged in a custom FFB plastic bag. Price: $32.

Hipster Hitler

First off, before you start sending me hate mail, I do not and have never supported Adolf Hitler. What he did and what he stood for was an embarrassment to the human race. Having said that, Hipster Hitler, a webcomic by JC + APK is actually pretty hilarious! What’s brilliant is that Hipster Hitler wears a different T-Shirt in each comic strip and they actually sell said T-Shirts in their web store. The Hipster Hitler shirts are available via RedBubble and are priced at $27.93 a piece.
