Introducing The Origami Scarf

It’s a scarf, that you can fold and manipulate like you would origami. What’s not to like? Well, maybe the price. At ¥11,500 (~$150), it’s a little pricey. After all, origami is supposed to offer up cheap thrills.

The Origami Scarf is available now from Monomatopee for $150.

Scary Anime Lady Scribble T-Shirt

You can file this under the category labeled bizarre. Yu Kobayashi is a Japanese actress that is best known for her voice, which has appeared in video games such as Ar tonelico III, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and the feature film adaptation of Animal Crossing. What’s bizarre is that she decided to create some scribbles that look like they came from someone who was high on acid. And the worst part is that this isn’t a joke product, Kobayashi is actually selling her design in tote and T-Shirt form. If you’re crazy enough to be even remotely interested in this, then you deserve to spend the $63 that it will cost you to own these two products.

Would you buy this T-Shirt/Tote combination pack? Would you wear this T-Shirt?

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 11 – Origami T-Shirt

Growing up, I used to love doing origami. In fact, I believe that I still do have a box of origami supplies hidden somewhere in my old room at my parents house. All of my old origami projects should also be in that box! For today’s Project365, I turn an ordinary dollar bill into a T-Shirt. Unfortunately, you can’t wear this particular T-Shirt, but you can keep it in your wallet for good luck!

This Origami T-Shirt was inspired by a photo by Flickr member Vaguely Artistic.

To make you own Origami T-Shirt, please refer to these instructions by Clay Randall.

Day 11: Origami T-Shirt

Here’s the front of the T-Shirt. Nifty collar, huh?!

And here’s the back of the T-Shirt. Wouldn’t it be cool if the seal was on the front of the T-Shirt instead?

When Experimental Jetset created their “John & Paul & Ringo & George” for the Japanese label 2K/Gingham I would bet money that they probably did not think it would become the cultural icon that it did. “John & Paul & Ringo & George” has been parodied over and over and over again. Or should I say, Over & Over & Over again. NerdyShirts now adds to the list of brands and individuals capitalizing on the success of Experiment Jetset’s typographic idea. Pick up all four of these shirts for $19.97 a piece and score free shipping. Place your order before this Friday (12/18/2009) to make sure you receive it before Christmas!

robotRock by Chop Shop

Most geeks that you meet will probably admit to being fans of robots. And why not? Robots are representative of the technical advancements that we wish we had, and, well, they’re just cool to see, imagine, build, etc. As an 80’s kid I grew up watching Transformers and Voltron, and in the 90’s I admittedly watched The Power Rangers series. There’s just something so innately appealing about robots for tech geeks like myself. 

But enough reminiscing, here’s a tee from the guys over at the Chop Shop. It’s their newest tee and it’s called robotRock. I love the image, but not so sure of the Japanese text – can anyone translate? The tee is available in three different colors: olive, dark chocolate and black. You can pick one up today from Chop Shop for just $20.00 but remember to use the coupon code “cotygun” for 15% off of your next order at the Chop Shop! And, seriously, does anyone know what the Japanese text means?!
