Johnny Cupcakes continues to pump out new products for the summer. Here are a couple of his latest, including his latest tee, Power Mitts! How many of you remember Nintendo’s Power Glove from the late 80′s? If you do then Power Mitt from Johnny Cupcakes is the tee for you! The shirt sells for $35.99 and is available now for purchase. Check out the video below for an old school Power Glove commercial.Â
Mr. Cupcakes also released a pair of crossbones printed shorts ($64.99) and rolling pin board shorts ($59.99). I dig the casual crossbones shorts but am not sure if I would trust those board shorts. I have had bad experiences with boardshorts not coming from a brand that specializes in water sports. Quiksilver is my brand of choice when it comes to board shorts because of their durability and selection of wacky and fun designs.Â
Quicksilver has hooked up with Design By Humans for its Design A Difference Tee Contest. The contest is in support of the Tony Hawk Foundation and 6% of each tee sale will go towards the foundation.Â
Designs can be logo or art driven, they do however, suggest you checkout Quicksilver.com for design “inspiration”. So if you’re planning to enter, and have no experience in surf/beach wear, then be sure to check Quicksilver and other board sport brands for creative direction. You can download the Quicksilver logo to incorporate into your design here and the logo sheet here.Â
The prizes are: $1000 + $250 Quicksilver product for first place, $750 + $200 Quicksilver product for second place, and $500 + $200 Quicksilver product for third place. Entries need to be submitted by March 15 and the winners will be announced on March 30. Good luck!
