Make Your Own See-Thru Portal T-Shirt

I’ve never played Portal before. In fact, before seeing this Ben Heck episode the other day, I had no real idea of what the game was really about. Thank goodness for Wikipedia.

“The game consists primarily of a series of puzzles that must be solved by teleporting the player’s character and simple objects using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (ASHPD, also dubbed the “portal gun”), a unit that can create inter-spatial portals between flat planes.”

Neat! Natural born modder, Ben Heck, set out to create his very own Portal T-Shirt. ThinkGeek has one for sale, but it turned out to be just an April Fools Joke. So if you want one of these puppies, you’ll have to DIY (that is Do-It-Yourself for the acronym disinclined).

I did watch the episode and the process seems pretty straightforward, though a little cumbersome. Of course, you’ll need to order the parts, including a mini LCD screen and a small surveillance sized video camera. But once you get all the pieces together, the effect is pretty cool. Might make a good Halloween costume?

David Arquette Screen Printing + Unknown Artifact

I spotted an interesting video of David Arquette doing some screen printing while perusing the blog at Unknown Artifact, a brand new clothing company looking to make a name for itself.

Unknown Artifacts founder, CJ, spotted David Arquette hand printing a few T-Shirts for his clothing brand, Propr Clothing, while watching Last Call With Carson Daly. As CJ points out, Arquette is using water-based discharge ink as he hand prints his tees. Surprisingly, Arquette even admitted to having a single press at his home. Neat!

And here’s a little taste of Unknown Artifact. The three shirts below were part of the first Unknown Artifact release, which was quickly auctioned off as part of the Experimental Education Unit in Seattle, Washington. Although these shirts are not currently for sale, you get a good idea of what Unknown Artifact is all about. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited to see future Unknown Artifact designs.

Fuzzy Ink Spring 2010 Release + An Odd Video of Me

A few days ago I gave you a sneak peak of the Spring 2010 Fuzzy Ink line. Well, they finally released their goods and all I need to say is WOW – it’s just the thing that I need for my mustache fix. If you don’t already know, I’ve got a thing for mustaches, as this list of 101 Weird Mustache Products will attest.

Back to the T-Shirts. The new Spring line is huge! It features a whopping 10 new shirts for both men and women, with gender specific styles. Because, well, when it comes to mustaches you kind of need to be a tad bit less obvious for the ladies. They like subtle things. This might be Fuzzy Ink’s first line specifically for the ladies, but I have to say that it looks like they know what they are doing! Oh yeah, and if you’re a girl that doesn’t care about being subtle, most of the designs on the men side are also available in woman crew neck sizes. Guy’s, sorry, but you can’t have the lady specific designs.

My favorites from the spring line? I really like the blue Look Ma No Hands bicycle T-Shirt as well as the Sonic The Hedgehog inspired Housebroken shirt. On the ladies side, I really think that Sea Smooch is uber cute!

The shirts are priced from $21 to $26 and are available now for purchase. Use the coupon code “Hawaii” at checkout for a splendid 10% off of your entire order!

John from Fuzzy Ink sent over this photo of his living room in its current state. Hmmm…I’m thinking 1. that’s a lot of T-Shirts, and 2. it would kind of be difficult to watch March Madness. Want to help Fuzzy Ink get their living room in order? Buy a T-Shirt!

One Smart Monkey by Arrow

Chimps are amazing animals. This tee reminds of the semester I spent in an Animal Learning class watching videos of chimps doing amazing things. See below an example of a chimp participating in an experiment of short term memory and then a human male repeating the same experiment. It’s amazing, trust me.

One Smart Monkey is a new tee from Uneetee and it features an anthropomorphic chimpanzee decked out in a long sleeve tee and spectacles. This tee is printed on an American Apparel tee and is available for $19.99. It’s available in limited quantities and sizes so act fast!

Co-Tee TV Episode 19: Wingtips, Ten Bills and Peaceful Primates

In this episode I wear Wingtips by Manos Lakoutsis and review a tee from Ten Bills called Bird Is My Best Friend that was designed by Doug Cowan. Ten Bills was founded on the idea that cool, fresh looking shirts should be made available for just 10 bucks. Ten Bills made that happen and now you can get fresh tees all year round for a stunningly affordable 10 bills. 

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

Coty’s Thoughts:

Bird Is My Best Friend by Doug Cowan. Good: Great illustration from Doug Cowan, the shirt fits great, a little longer than American Apparel tees but that shouldn’t be a problem after the first wash. The tee is tagless for itch free comfort and features a screen printed neck label instead. The best part of the tee is it’s price – it’s cheap! This is a great shirt for anyone that’s into philosophy, animals or both! Bad: Not much, I was a bit skeptical about quality, at first, but the shirt is comparable to what other sites are selling at double the price. I’ll sure be picking up tees from Ten Bills in the future! Price: $10.00.

Wingtips by Manos Lakoutsis for Threadless. This here is a classic Threadless tee. I’m not wearing a first edition, unfortunately, but still – great shirt! This one is actually printed on an American Apparel tee rather than the Threadless branded tee (I prefer the AA fit over the Threadless fit). Perfect shirt for any shoe snob. Price: $9.00 (available in very limited quantities and sizes).
