And now for something completely different! This is a fab etsy shop run by a lady I know loosely via the North East burlesque scene. T-shirts are not what the shop is about and it’s aimed pretty much entirely at the gal side of the population.
She Felt Geeky mostly specialises in super cute geek, comic, gaming, movie fabric panties amongst other things include pasties (nipple tassels) and some cute random one off pieces.
I don’t own any pieces personally but it means a lot for me to support local companies and from the reviews from friends I’ve heard the quality is absolutely first rate.
One selection of pieces that stand out for me when you land in the Etsy store are the Harry Potter, Hogwarts House panties. Here are the amazing Hufflepuff and Slytherin ones. How over the moon would any lady Harry Potter fan be with these! They’d be an excellent stocking filler for Christmas, and they look like they’d be super soft to the touch!
Amongst other geek factions you can grab Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel, Tattoo Print, Halloween Print, Super Cute Floral ones to name but a view! Store owner Miss Buttons also posted an image of this fabric a few days ago so you can totally get your hands some some spooky panties if that’s your bag!
She is super talented and approachable so if you had any requests or ideas I’m sure she would be extremely accommodating! I have to add her pasties are absolutely delightful but I’d better not put boobies on HYA!
I think of of my favourite pieces which is also extremely seasonal are these super cute Halloween panties! Snap them up people, support handmade and UK businesses!
On the Internet today: a supercut mixtape of the most iconic t-shirts to grace the Silver screen. The edit includes some memorable faves — Vote For Pedro, Nigel’s Green Skeleton tank top from This Is Spinal Tap, the so-called Shark Cat design from Pineapple Express — but is carefully leavened with some curious artifacts of the slogan variety from the ’80s.
Think you can identify all of the movies? Be the first to do so and you’ll win a $100 gift card good for anything at Found Item Clothing! Details on how to enter right at Found Item’s blog, It Goes To 11. (A full list of every film will be posted after the winner is announced.)
In fairness to Sharknado, it has probably been one of Syfy’s biggest successes for many years, even if people are only watching it to see how bad it is. Shirts are $5 off the regular price at Snorg until Sunday.
Isn’t it weird that there aren’t more Buffy t-shirts considering how massively popular the show was? I guess it isn’t really on TV much anymore so perhaps the younger generation don’t see it much and so t-shirt designers don’t want to spend time on something out of the public consciousness.
All three shirts are $14 at Tshirt Laundry this week before going up next week.
I haven’t seen Pacific Rim, but I do love that Hokusai-inspired design new in at BustedTees this week. Then again, I say that about every Hokusai-inspired design that I see. Shirts are $20 a piece and available now.
Long time readers will be aware that I’m a big fan of Blade Runner, though I probably haven’t watched it for a couple of years, so I was really happy to see this minimal Spinner t-shirt on sale at Super7. Here’s their blurb for it:
From the not-so-distant future of 2019 comes one of the most iconic vehicles in film history: the flying SPINNER car!
Inspired by the concepts of Syd Mead as realized in the seminal science fiction classic BLADE RUNNER, the SPINNER DESIGNER T-SHIRT has been uniquely rendered with the blue of the car and the blue of the shirt merging together to create one stylish design. Whether you are on the ground ordering noodles on soaring past monolithic billboards in the sky, the SPINNER shirt is sure to turn heads (and tortoises).
Available in Human sizes small thru 2XL.
(Nexus-6 sizes have been retired.)
It’s been quite freeing not to have to worry about writing the daily post Monday-Friday, I felt quite a lot of pressure to get those posts up by 12 every day even though not that many people were reading them, but I do still like to check in on the daily/weekly sites every so often.
Big and tall tee site Fresh Brewed Tee have these two designs from Jon Rohde (AKA Buzatron) up this week for the more sizeable in the HYA audience. It looks like this is available as a two-pack for $30 with no option t pick them up separately. The shirts are available until June 15th.
Good on them for going down the legitimate route with these Star Wars designs and actually getting permission from LucasFilm to sell these designs. I’m not too hot on the Saber & Vader design that is influenced by 80s skater style, but I wasn’t a skater in the 80s so I’m okay with that. The Tauntaun meat cuts tee is a bit of fun, I’d quite like that as a poster. I do wish that Super7 had larger product images though, it would be nice to be able to see a bit more detail.
Highlights here in this sprawling, 21-minute (!!!) odyssey include a gaming-as-addiction montage (:38 seconds), a Pong tutorial from Jeff Bridges and Harry Dean Stanton (2:03), a three-piece tribute to Michael J. Fox (8:57), and a montage of digital dance offs (10:29)!

A few months ago I reviewed 83MM who are awesome. They’ve recently changed their name from 83MM to Dead Reel, which to me is a nicer name! So good choice guys!
Sheffield-based independent movie t-shirt line, 83mm Apparel has re-launched as Dead Reel to prepare the brand for international exposure following a successful first nine months in business. As part of the brand revamp, founder Jon Hides, who hand draws the t-shirt designs, has unveiled a slick new identity featuring a re-designed logo, website and photo gallery. Dead Reel launched as 83mm Apparel in September 2012 after graphic designer and artist, Jon couldn’t find a t-shirt line that catered for his love of classic movies. The nine-strong collection features designs based on iconic movie moments that only the true film fans would recognise, including scenes from The Shining, Batman and The Evil Dead.
They recently unveiled under their new guise at MGM’s Comic Convention, which is pretty sweet. They through some pictures up as well from the event on their Facebook page
It’s funny, I’ve made it pretty clear that I really dislike cereal box designs, but I rather like comic book cover designs even though they share a lot of the same elements, especially when they’re based on an actual comic book. It’s probably because the artwork made for a cover is meant to have an immediate impact and tell the story without needing any explanation, so it works well for a shirt. I like the way that 80sTees have captioned this picture as well, “Meet Chad. He is 5′ 7″ tall and weighs 182 pounds. He is wearing size Large.” It seems a little silly but that’s actually great information for people trying to make a best guess on how a shirt is going to fit them, it would be great to see more people giving this kind of info with their product photos.
Not a bad week at Tshirt Laundry, but I do wonder who is going to buy them. Releasing a Star Trek design now makes perfect sense, but are people really that bothered about the use of lens flares? Similarly, the ‘Installation Wizard’ joke is a bit of fun, but who is going to buy it, have they produced a design that is just aimed at sysadmins?
