Donkey Kong Costume t-shirt at MySoti

Sure, it’s too late for Halloween this year, but it’s never too early to get a head start on next year’s outfit, and this Donkey Kong t-shirt would be all you need since he doesn’t wear trousers (though maybe some brown leggings would be more appropriate).

Post image for BustedTees embrace novelty with their Halloween costumes

Before you get excited about having a ready-made AWESOM-O outfit, all the tees are just the tee, you don’t get the extras which help make complete the outfit, but it’s not really that much work to draw on a box, is it?

Really big release of novelty tees (and ridiculous onesies) from Busted Tees this week in preparation for an onslaught of slackers that don’t want to go DIY with their Halloween outfit. So we’ve got Dumb & Dumber, Chuckie from Rugrats, Ace Ventura, Star Wars, and South Park all being represented… and some crazy onesies which are surprisingly reasonable at $52.


Post image for These novelty Star Wars hoodies are fun, but would you wear them?

Like I say in the title, these Star Wars hoodies are definitely fun, but I just can’t imagina actually seeing people out on the street wearing them, they just look a bit too silly to me. Still, my “different strokes for different folks” rule applies, and 80sTees have been doing this for long enough that they know what sells, so I’m sure that you’ll be seeing loads of kids dressing like Chewie, R2-D2 and Darth soon enough.


rainbow dash my little pony hoodie

I’m not into My Little Pony, but I do understand that a lot of people out there are obsessed with it, so when I saw these ridiculous hoodies over at 80sTees I just had to mention them. Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie are all represented in this collection which I’m sure will get a lot of ironic wear over the next few months, and cost $50 a piece.


Darth Vader Costume Hoodie

darth vader costume hoodie

Considering it’s a hoodie that would be acceptable for day-to-day wear, this Darth Vader hoodie at 80sTees is actually pretty accurate to the real thing.

An Iron Man 2 t-shirt that actually lights up!

Iron Man arc reactor t-shirt light

Trust ThinkGeek to release this, very cool. I get the feeling that the effect has been tampered with in photoshop for the product image which is a little disappointing, but I still have high hopes for this shirt.

Costiness=$29.99 Buy it at ThinkGeek


leather jacket t-shirt

I would love to see the real version of this instead of a mockup because it’s pretty rare to see a ‘costume’ tee like this that goes into so much detail. I’m pretty impressed by Norwegian brand Killer Brigade, they’ve got a good selection of tees and a nice website, hopefully they’ll keep sending me e-mails when they release new stuff because I know that I’ll forget to go back.

halloween costume guide

Found Item Clothing sell t-shirts that are faithful recreations of designs found in movies (generally 80s movies), so it’s pretty natural that people are going to want to wear them on Halloween to a party, but how do you complete the outfit? I didn’t know about this but pparently for the past few years FIC have been putting together halloween costume guides for some of their movie tees, and this year is no different, with a few more additions to the guide. They provide a head-to-toe guide of everything the character wears (in this case Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), and even a print-out card that you could take with you if you went shopping for items for your outfit.


Death is Pop by Short at LaFraise

death is pop lego t-shirt

Cool concept alert, a skeleton made of Lego (or Lego style fun blocks if the lawyers were to ask, presumably)! It’s a great idea, executed well, and that colourway is spot on too. Anyone have anything to complain about with this tee? I sure don’t.

A hoodie with bat wings!

Post image for A hoodie with bat wings!

File this under ZOMG! because it’s crazy/fun. As you can no doubt tell from image above, this hoodie has bat wings and ears, which tickels me something proper (whatever that means). Clearly, this hoodie is about being a bit wacky, but I’m glad to say that the wings are removable if you’re wanting to tone it down a touch.

Costiness=£42 Buy it at Dressedbydanni


The chances of you seeing me wearing this hoodie from 80sTees are on the lower end of ‘slim to none’, but that doesn’t stop me thinking that it’s awesome, and that it would be a good go-to for a costume if you only had a few hours notice for a fancy dress party. Can you imagine just walking down the street wearing this?

Costiness=$60 Available from 80sTees

Superman by Religion Clothing at my-sape

I think I’d struggle to convince anyone to buy a t-shirt that costs €55 ($82), so I’m not even going to bother, looks good though right?

Jabba the Hutt Costume

by Andy on September 16, 2009


I know this isn’t really HYA material, but it does hide the wearer’s arms, so I’m clinging onto that piece of relevancy since I thought this was funny. It’s an official Jabba the Hut costume made by LucasFilm (I’m not sure if it’s on sale), and someone that works there decided that they really should test it out themselves to make sure that the costume could stand up to the rigours of daily life, including dancing. Check out the post of then official Star Wars blog about it.


It’s a Satchel by Snorg Tees

by Andy on September 9, 2009

Satchel_Fullpic_2 Satchel_Fullpic_3

Anyone that’s seen The Hangover will understand what this tee is all about. I feel compelled to watch it, not only because I consider myself a one-man wolf pack, but because I own a satchel (though I just call it my ‘man bag’) that looks almost exactly the same except it’s black… and my friends mock me for having a bag like that too, much like in the movie. But seriously, where else would I keep all my stuff?

If only Snorg Tees went the whole mile and actually had the strap running all the way around the body, or at least up to the shoulder on the left and down at the side on the right. If you’re going to do a ‘fake’ tee then you might as well do it right or not bother at all.

Star Wars x Marc Ecko Darth Vader Hoodie

by Andy on August 18, 2009


This Darth Vader hoodie (and the other hoodies in this series, including Darth Maul, Clone Trooper, X Wing Pilot, Trooper, and Storm Trooper, all of which can be seen in the gallery) aren’t actually going to be shipping until October 1st, but with this being a collaboration between a streetwear manufacturer and a supremely popular movie franchise, it’s a fair bet that they’ll sell out before that date arrives, so if you want it, get your order in now and prepare to be patient.

I can’t actually decide if I like this, on the one hand, they’re a lot of fun, but on the other, I can’t help but think I’d look like a bit of a tool if I ever wore one, and the novelty effect of the full-zip would tire pretty quickly, and that amount of vinyl on a hoodie could be a touch uncomfortable, but I’m sure such practical concerns aren’t important to the kind of people that are ordering this hoodie.

If you’re still game, prepare to lay down between $98 and $150 for your emergency outfit at fancy-dress parties for the next few years.

Fake Knapsack T-shirt by Graniph

13854-0 13854-1

I’m such a sucker for ‘fake’ tees, not fake as in ‘Kalvin Clein’ or ‘Louis Vitton’ of ‘Hyde Your Arms’, but tees that make you do a double-take and question what you’re seeing for a just a second. This tee does a pretty good job of that, it raises a smile, and if that isn’t a good enough reason for wearing a tee then I don’t know what is.

Batman Costume Hoodie from NerdyShirts

by Andy on July 21, 2009


Okay, so this clearly isn’t as badass as anything from The Dark Knight, but I think that when you’re wearing a novelty/costume hoodie that you need it to be more than a little bit tongue in cheek, otherwise it’s just not going to work. The fact that this hoodie comes with a cape is pretty awesome, but it’s far more awesome that you can remove the cape for those frequent times when you don’t particularly feel like being continually mocked. You can also fold the mask into the hood, so whilst this hoodie looks as if it’s a bit of a joke initially, you can tone it down so that it’s still a bit of fun but is actually pretty wearable, good work NerdyShirts!

The Hangover by NerdyShirts

by Andy on July 14, 2009


I know I’m pretty late posting this, but I think it’s a tee that’s funny whether you’ve seen the movie or not, so it’s topicality isn’t necessarily that important in this instance. For the record, I really enjoyed the film, it didn’t really raise a lot of belly laughs with me, but there were a lot of little chortles, though I did seem to be laughing at different times to everyone else in the cinema, which is probably because I ‘got’ the jokes which needed American knowledge, and it was really cool to reminisce about my few days in Vegas too. Unfortunately, with me being a bit late posting this, NerdyShirts are pretty limited in terms of sizes at the moment.

Costiness=$19.95 Available from NerdyShirts
