WonderCon 2010 Costume Spotting (Day 1)

WonderCon 2010 is being held from April 2-4 this year and as with any comic book convention, there are some amazingly wacky costumes to be seen! I’ll be tracking the best costume spottings from Wondercon 2010 because I always get a kick at seeing what people decide to dress up as. My favorite from the first days batch has got to be the simple and elegant Marty McFly costume!

The Flash

It’s been way too long since we’ve featured a shirt from our friends over at Despair Wear. This shirt idea seems so obvious that I’m surprised that it I haven’t seen it done before (or maybe it has ben done and I just missed it). This fun shirt is a bit of a deviation from the typical Despair Wear tee, which typically focuses on designs that aid in demotivation (you know, the opposite of motivation).

The Flash is printed on an asphalt American Apparel blank and is available now from Despair Wear for $18.99. This is the perfect shirt for those of you who wish you could flash someone but don’t have the guts to do so. Or, maybe you just T-Shirts featuring comic book characters in witty situations.

Speed Trap by FM365

Flying Mouse 365 has been busily releasing new tees every week as part of his ongoing Flying Mouse 365 Project. One shirt in particular from hir current crop caught my eye. It’s called Speed Trap and it’s an obvious parody of the DC Comics character, Flash. I loved Flash growing up, how many of you remember the short lived Flash TV series? The shirt reminds me a bit of the parody tees that Glennz Tees has been come to be known for and although it’s not from Glenn it’s great to see some other artists take on parodying superheroes.

Speed Trap is printed on an American Apparel tee as available now from Flying Mouse365 for the new low price of $15.

Filter Heroes by Chop Shop

If you are a Photoshop geek then this shirt is a must have! This super awesome mutant hero inspired shirt from Chop Shop will make any CS4 guru salivate. The shirt was designed by Threadless alumni and illustration veteran, Joshua Kemble.

After a bizarre lab experiment, this ordinary studio of designers were transformed into The Filter Heroes! No design project is too high brow to resist the powers of Lens Flare. What client could challenge the combined effects of Crystallize and Emboss!? Their only known weaknesses are large file sizes and molecular solvents.

Filter Heroes is printed on American Apparel Eggplant, Alstyle Charcoal or White in limited sizes and is available now from The Chop Shop for $20. And if you’re into saving (who isn’t) then use the coupon code “cotygun” at checkout for an additional 15% off your entire order!

7 People From Around the World With Real Mutant Superpowers

They walk among us! Some even fly among us! They may even take the bus among us from time to time! Homosapiens-Superior is here, and can do things that have scientists scratching their heads. We’re carefully tracking their progress, so that one day soon we may gather them together and fight crime. Or maybe commit crimes. We haven’t decided yet.
