We all would like to be a knight now and again. The problem is that knight armor is heavy. Most geeks don’t have the strength to pull it off. It’s expensive too. You can’t just have your local blacksmith make some for you these days.
These concept sketches of Mass Effect hoodies has had fans of the franchise drooling for the past couple of months. The first one – a Tali hoodie, naturally – was uploaded by artist Christine Schott about two months ago.
Thanks to my Parakeet Vision, I spotted these awesome officially licensed hoodies from Insert Coin. Inspired by Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, the hoodies bear the name of the hometown of the Auditore family, the insignia of the Assassin Order and the numbers 14 and 99, indicating the year that the town became the Order’s headquarters.
Ok, they’re not made out of fleece, but the headline sounded way better that way. “The Dark Side of the 60% Cotton / 40% Polyester” didn’t roll off the tongue the same way. Regardless, these Dark Side hoodies are still pretty awesome – assuming you get your thrills from Star Wars, and don’t mind people staring at you.
I like hoodies, but this is the first time that I’ve seen the hoodie design used for anything else but clothes. Splashing Koi created these funky little iPhone hoodies that will make your phone stand out from the lot.
oI have a few hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion. No flip-flops or sandals unless you are at the beach is the first. No hoodies once you are old enough to make your own clothing purchases – unless you are running a marathon in the cold is the second.
One of the coolest villains in cartoon history has definitely got to be The Shredder. Before he was ridiculed in the movies, he was one mean dude in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons. Now, you can bring out your own super-villain with this snazzy hoodie.
Etsy seller frosti calls herself a “vessel of awesomeness”, and after looking at her apparel, I kind of agree. Here’s her R2-D2 hoodie:
Plus points for the R2-D2 head/hood. frosti’s selling it for $92 (USD), but before you hit the link, know that it’s only available in XL.
I’m not sure when Ecko embraced geek and gamer culture, but it’s pretty cool that they have. So now Halo fans – of which there are an abundant amount – can celebrate the launch of Halo 3: ODST by braving winter in their very own limited edition Ecko ODST hoodie.
I’m not a big Star Wars nut, but I would gladly hand over my money for these awesome Star Wars hoodies by Marc Ecko. I want all of them. Here are some of the designs:
That’s the Vader hoodie ($100 (USD)) together with the X Wing Pilot hoodie ($150).
Some people find clothes for things that aren’t meant to wear clothes (i.e. everything non-human) cute, perhaps even cool. I’m not as enthusiastic about the idea, but to each his own right? If we already have chihuahua wigs or cat dresses, then I guess gadget clothing isn’t so bad.
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.
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.
