Doctor Who regeneration tee

Did you know you could spell the word “regenerations” by pulling letters from the names of all the actors who have played the Doctor? I had no idea until I saw this shirt. Whoever designed it deserves a ride in the TARDIS.

H.P. Lovecraft foretold that one day, when the Magic Kingdom finally crumbles, a terrible monstrosity shall arise from the murky moat that surrounds Cinderella Castle and will lay waste to the cities of man. I am, of course, referring to Mickthulhu Mouse. If you’d like to get on your new overlord’s good side, I’d recommend picking up this t-shirt. Who knows? It just might save you from complete annihilation.

gamora and nebula tee

Two characters have been notably absent from most of the Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise: Gamora and Nebula. Stores like The Children’s Place state that shirts made for boys won’t feature the sisters because they’re girls. Happily, we have Her Universe to fill the void. This shirt will be available soon – likely premiering at New York Comic Con next weekend.

Klingons look tough, and they’re all about war and stuff, but do you know what they like to do in their spare time? They love to tie-dye. Honestly, they do! They tie-dye shirts, or they tie-dye hankies and wrap them around their bat’leths–honestly, if you can tie-dye it, the Klingons have already probably done it. In fact, “Today is a good day to die” has been incorrectly translated. It’s actually properly translated as “Today is a good day to dye.” Got it?

wear-your-superheroes

Leanna is like a lot of little girls. She’s five-years-old and loves superheroes. Unfortunately, when she wore her superhero t-shirts to kindergarten, boys in her class tell her that superheroes are “for boys.” That’s when her seven-year-old sister Adalina stepped in. She declared October 1st to be Wear Your Superheroes Day – a day for boys and girls of all ages to wear superhero clothing.

It started with a Facebook event, and over 2,000 people RSVP’d. Participants posted pics on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #WearYourSuperheroes. Organizers Tom Nagel, Stacy Brannan-Smith, and Mindy Ellis Nagel posted the following on the Facebook event:

To everyone who shared their #WearYourSuperheroes photos and words of encouragement for Adalina and Leanna: Thank you so much! To say that we are overwhelmed by your response would be an extraordinary understatement.

Although I don’t think they totally understand the impact that their idea had, or just how many people came together to support them, I can say with certainty that the girls had a blast today. More importantly, you helped us achieve our goal of enabling Leanna to “wear her superheroes” with confidence!

After talking with her this evening, I realized that she didn’t see this day as being about her. It was simply a celebration. She told me that she was excited that everyone got to dress up as their favorite superhero, and I could tell how happy she was that there were so many other people who share her interests.

They’ve created a website for the event, and they’re not done. They plan to continue hosting events, including something for Halloween. You can keep up with the latest at their Facebook page.

sherlock bored tee 1

BBC gave us so many gifts with their take on Sherlock. Besides putting the wonder that is Benedict Cumberbatch into our lives, they incorporated some cool designs into the decor. The wallpaper of 221B has started to show up on all kinds of apparel, like this t-shirt by Etsy seller Consulting Fan Geeks. It looks great on its own and would also work under a blazer.

dc oh noes

Female geek friendly apparel has come such a long way that it almost hurts my neck from whiplash when I see something this…bad.

The Superman version first came to my attention thanks to a tweet by fellow Fashionably Geek contributor Alan Kistler (thank you Alan!) which cut pretty much to the heart of why they were so…icky. Apparently,  Wonder Woman is a thing to win and girls can only grow up to be Batman’s wife. Amazingly, someone at DC approved these designs.

It’s a bummer because there are a lot of licensed tees out there that empower women to BE the superhero instead of belonging to one.

In this day and age, it’s too bad that these these regressions still happen. However, I content myself with the knowledge that, overall, things are better than they used to be and that we’re making strides all the time.

shirt

We may be used to seeing the silhouettes of Joel and the ‘Bots at the bottom of the screen while the movie plays, but now the tables have turned. This time the screen is the audience and it’s filled with all the monsters and assorted beasts that are usually subject to MST3K mocking. Who’s watching who?

star

This beautiful shirt titled “Death of a Star/Birth of a Hero” is currently up for voting over on threadless. The design is the work of artist Ciro Trezzi who has managed to tell the story of the first trilogy in one incredible design and all it needs is your votes to become a reality.

all men must die

Here’s a t-shirt write up that comes with it’s own trivia factoid. According to ThinkGeek’s website, HBO’s Game of Thrones employs a comic book artist and writer to do their storyboarding, and the three-eyed sword raven that we’ve seen featured so prominently in the Season 4 advertising was created by comic book artist William Simpson (Batman, Judge Dredd, Hellblazer).

I didn’t know that until I saw their All Men Must Die Ladies’ Long Sleeve Tee with that same awesome raven design.
