Sighted at last week’s Ohayocon 2009 in Columbus, Ohio, some dude went all out with this life size Nintendo Game Boy costume that’s actually playable.
The cardboard Game Boy shell is a little janky, but the wearer deserves mad props for the fully-functional Game Boy emulator, running Tetris on a laptop screen.
Whether you’re an iPhone addict or hooked on your CrackBerry, you have to be a real gadget nut to wear these miniature smartphone earrings.
Toronto artist Barb Feldman handcrafts these teeny tiny iPhone 3G and BlackBerry (Curve?)
Do you regularly find yourself playing as Bill, Zoey, Louis or Francis? If so, you might want to check out SEIBEI’s Intramural Zombie Hunter Shirt, complete with logo and gore.
The shirt is somewhat customizable in that the back can either be “Athletic”, like the one you see above, or carry the slogan “Kill as many zombies and vampires as you can”.
Imagine all the chicks you’ll attract when you walk down the street donning this awesome NES controller varsity jacket.
Adorned with a larger than life NES controller on the back and an (almost) actual-size embroidered controller on the chest, you’ll be showing off your 8-bit fanaticism whether you’re coming or going.
The jacket is officially licensed by Nintendo, and available in a limited edition of just 1,000.
I’ve always wondered how Paper beats Rock. So what if it covers Rock? That’s not the same as being cut or crushed. Cafepress ups the confusion but in the process has created the Game of the Year, nay, the game of the 23rd century.
Paper disproves Spock.
What could say “I really know how to dress myself” more than a nice big brass belt buckle. You know – the type that’s so huge that you dare not try to bend at the waist, lest you puncture an internal organ?
You could easily buy your own binary clock or watch, but is that really in the spirit of such a timepiece? One could easily argue that a purchased binary watch just isn’t quite geeky enough. If you want to show your real geek cred, you’ve got to bust out some tools and make your own.
Ari’s hulking watch began life as a simple binary pocket watch, but at the urgings of the BenHeck.com
This cool Darth Vader shirt from Junk Food Clothing features the Sith Lord’s helmet , which is drawn using tiny depictions of animals and landscapes, plus a caption written in Star Wars font that says, “JOIN THE GREEN SIDE!”.
Wear your retro Apple spirit on your sleeve (or really on your chest) with one of these illuminated t-shirts, sporting the old school rainbow Apple logo.
The t-shirt lights up using an electroluminescent display that responds to music and other ambient sounds.
Owen Good over at the big K has a great idea: if you’re looking for a gift for your gamer-friends but you find that actual video games are too pricey, get them these wonderful yet cheap shirts instead.
Why choose the great outdoors over a carefully-rendered urban landscape? So long as you stay away from the people in that pesky uncanny valley, the variable world of video games may just be prettier (and easier to control) than the real world.
This cotton/poly hoodie is a steal at $22.99
Retro gamer girls – here’s a fun accessory that lets you wear your 8-bit fanaticism on your sleeve (or at least on your wrist).
This handmade Tetris resin bracelet is embellished with a scene from the classic block-stacking puzzler.
While it won’t necessarily protect you the next time you head out to play paintball, this camouflage Super Mario Brothers hoodie will definitely help you stay hidden the next time you visit the Mushroom Kingdom.
Covered from head to waist with graphics inspired by the classic 8-bit platformer, the MarioFlage hoodie is perfect for the Mario fanatic in your life.
The Cotton/Poly hoodie is perfect for keeping warm in the cool days ahead.
I really think we need to start a new trend. Everyone needs to start wearing cufflinks again (did they ever?) At least that would give me a good excuse go around wearing these retro video game studs on my shirt sleeves.
Jewelry artist Dedalo makes a variety of sterling silver men’s accessories, but these Space Invaders cufflinks are my personal fave.
I was looking around for an interesting Halloween costume when I came across this awesome 5-person Tetris costume!
The great thing about this costume is that unlike some other group costumes, you would be very recognizable apart or together.
