Threadless is currently holding a contest called Threadcakes – in which bakers submit cake designs inspired by Threadless t-shirts. There are a bunch of awesome and amusing submissions, but my favorite so far has to be this cake.
It’s a good thing I don’t have to deal with people gifting me holiday pullovers. When I’m old and doing nothing but gaming all day, I hope this Mario-inspired design by Tim Shumate is still around and available as a sweater.
From the looks of this retro-mechanical machine, it looks like Pac-Man was in existence long before the 1980s. The Ghost Eater 1 is powered by gears, steam, cherries and power pellets, and is the perfect t-shirt for retro gaming fans.
After jumping over and running through monsters and obstacles and risking his life (Mama Mia! Why is there a timer?!) just to get to Princess Peach, Mario must have been pissed off after the first time he found out that he fought his way to the wrong castle.
This neat T-shirt design falls under the “now why didn’t I think of that” category:
“And the C3POscar goes to…” was made by Rodrigo Ferreira. It’s still up for voting, so if you want to see this made into a shirt, head over to Threadless now.
The other day I told you guys about some funny Pac-Man cookie cutters, and noted how Blinky was nowhere to be found. I thought he had been eaten, and that’s quite possibly why he’s rising from the dead in this funny new T-shirt, called “Medium Difficulty.”
The tee was designed by Stuart Colebrook, and features the ghostly red figure of Blinky, brought back to life for one last time during a seance.
This new t-shirt design comes courtesy of designer/illustrator Riccardo Bucchioni and I have to say that it’s a pretty funny one. It’s called Know Your Nerds and it’s available on Threadless for 18 bucks.
This simple, yet clever “Spacebar” t-shirt design by Montro has yet to be made, but truly deserves to be.
It combines four of my favorite things, computers, astronauts, passing out drunk, and hipster t-shirts all in a single package.
The Tron Legacy buzz is slowly starting, and Threadless has jumped onto the bandwagon with some great Tron-inspired hoodies that glow in the dark.
This great hoody was designed by Rolf Nelson. He’s come up with a few different designs, including t-shirts, that will really make you pop in the night since they all glow in the dark.
The hoody is available in two different designs, one for those of you working for the MCP and one for the rebels.
Do you spend a ton of time squished between the wall behind your A/V equipment, plugging and unplugging cables? Then have I got a T-shirt for you.
The backside of the “AV” t-shirt by Olly Moss offers more audio-visual connectors than you’ll probably ever need – at least analog ones.
So you’re the Hadouken master in Street Fighter IV. Yeah, that used to mean something, but now, friends, you’re second tier. You’ve been kicked off the hill. Until you can throw down a little mood music on the piano with a flurry of buttons, you’re just small potatoes.
Looks like this super-excellent shirt is finally in production at Threadless, and has even been (color) corrected from the canonical problems noticed by a reader when we posted it before.
The award for T-shirt of the week has to go to this die hard gamer’s tee from Threadless contributor Lawrence Pernica.
The simply designed shirt uses a retro bitmap font and a couple of game “life” indicators to express this simple statement: “Video games ruined my life.
