I don’t wear leggings (and as a result the world is a slightly better place), but you guys know I like galaxy tights and leggings since I’m sure you’ve seen them in the HYA store (leggings coming soon), and these Adventure Time themed leggings over at are really interesting so I thought they were worth a mention. They’re $26.50 a pair and available now.


I’d completely missed that they were even having the competition, but at least I’m here for the important bit, seeing the winners of the design contest and you guys being able to pick them up. There’s actually a few more designs amongst the winners, but I thought that there were enough images up there already. It’s cool to see that there’s no IGN branding on these designs, it would have been tempting for them I’m sure, but this way we end up with some damn good looking robot tees with no back story or explanation needed.

Check out all the winners here.


I can’t remember the last time that I watched Power Rangers, it was almost certainly during the very first incarnation of the show, so I would assume that it has changed quite a lot since then, but the characters still look pretty recognisable on these shirts.

Dozens of talented artists have participated in this competition and we were delighted to receive particularly strong and enthusiastic support from the Power Rangers fan community; “Ranger Nation” definitely brought their A-game both to submission of artwork and spreading the word to rate up their favorites into the finalists. The results are ten outstanding designs that capture the excitement and spirit of this enduring action series; among the winners are our grand prize winner as well as Judges’ Pick awards chosen by Saban Entertainment vice president, Elie Dekel, and actor Paulie Schrier (“Bulk” from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!)

Pretty nice selection of designs (there are more winners than that, but I though 5 pics was enough), with the overall winner (collecting $1170) being my favourite, which works out rather nicely. The tees are $25 each and available now at WeLoveFine.

A lot of the shirts in the St. Patrick’s Day collection at aren’t really all that stereotypical, some of them seem to just be green, which is good because it means that we can wear them for the rest of the year too, huzzah!


retro star trek t-shirts

These have been out for a while but I’m just seeing them now, but I guess that with them being based on retro poster art, and the original iteration of Star Trek that being a few weeks late posting about them isn’t too big of a deal. Really nice designs from Juan Ortiz, I love this retro style that is so popular at the moment. Shirts are $25 a piece and available now.


welovefine x transformers t-shirts

Impressive selection of winners from WeLoveFine’s design contest for Transformers, a couple of the tees look like the kind of thing you’d expect to be Transformers merchandise (not a bad thing, necessarily), but I think that the ‘Vitruvian Prime’ design was a worthy winner of the $1,000 grand prize.

Oh yeah, ’12 days of holidays’, we all know that famous saying… will be offering deep discounts on different categories of t-shirts every day from now until December 23rd when you should have stopped with Christmas shopping and be wearing ill-chosen sweaters whilst lazing on the couch. Well, I say that it’s every day, there isn’t anything on the special page where the sales should be as I type this, but I’m sure that service will be resumed soon. The link changes every day, just head to the homepage to get today’s deal (Adventure Time at the time of writing).


Post image for Star Trek T-Shirt Design Contest Winners Revealed at

If you’re wondering why so many of these Star Trek t-shirts have Uhura on them, Nichelle Nichols was one of the judges of the contest, which probably explains it. Still, it’s good to see more well-designed Star Trek shirts out there since it does seem to be an area that is sorely lacking considering how popular the series has been in it’s various iterations.

Post image for WeLoveFine & Cheezburger Present the “I Can Has Cats” T-Shirt Design Contest!

It kind of amazes me that this is a thing, but when you consider that I spend all day writing about t-shirts and looking at camera straps (Rigu!) then I guess that it isn’t that weird. However, if I were an artist I’m not entirely sure I’d want a cat, and a grumpy cat at that, deciding who gets awarded the prizes. Here’s all the details:

They are either your adorable, easygoing non-descript house pet… or they are our fluffy overlords who have taken over the internet, and soon, THE WORLD! Well, maybe, but we sure know which we would bet on, which is why we decided to launch our latest themed design contest on all those crazy CATS! Whether they are part of’s extensive (and hilarious) LOLCats archive, or a regular staple on your Tumblr feed, or an actual silly, awesome cat that belongs to YOU (and totally sits on your laptop every time you’re trying to work. Maaan, come on!) – take inspiration from the feline phenomenon and show us your most outstanding cat-based artwork! It can be funny, it can be just plain rad… it can feature kittens, old cats, fat cats, hairless cats, munchkin cats…. cats with frickin’ LASERS shooting out of their eyes! Anything your imagination can come up with, it could win you up to $2,500 and the chance to have your tee added to WeLoveFine’s shop! We and our pals at Cheezburger can’t wait to see what you all come up with, so go for it. From here until the winners’ announcement, every day is CATURDAY!

steampunk rogue x-men t-shirt

I promise that I didn’t intend for this to turn into Star Wars weekend on HYA, it just turned out that way when I was looking through the e-mails and spotted quite a few t-shirts I liked. Then again, a lot of HYAs popularity has been built upon a basis of posting Star Wars tees so I’m sure you guys won’t complain, especially since I’ve thrown a few other subjects into the mist over the weekend and in this post (that steampunk Rogue shirt being particularly nice). Unusually for HYA I’ve gone to the effort of linking each picture to the product page (except for the Rogue one due to a quirk in the HYA media process_.

scott pilgrim t-shirt design contest

I’ve been sitting on this contest for a bit too long, but you’ve got until March 28th to get your design in so I don’t feel too guilty. WeLoveFine have a knack for picking up big licenses and getting involved with big names and this is no different. They’re on the hunt for a t-shirt design to match up to the pop culture juggernaut that is Scott Pilgrim, and one of the people judging all the design submissions is Bryan Lee O’Malley, the guy that created the Scott Pilgrim series of comics. The minimum prize is $1000 to the winner, but that could go up to $2500 depending on now many total votes are cast in the competition. Here’s a run down of the prizes up for grabs:

Grand Prize: Up to $2,500! We will start the grand prize at $1,000. We will track the number of ratings in the contest; for every 100 new ratings after 100,000 ratings, the dollar value of the grand prize will go up $1. Be sure to tell ALL your friends, family and internet pals to rate every design! With enough rates, the prize could reach a maximum of $2,500 cash!

Guest Judge’s pick (2): Our guest judges will each select their personal favorite design, and those artists will win $400 cash!

Runners-Up (2): Two runners-up will receive a $150 gift certificate for

Honorable Mention (5): Five honorable mentions will receive a $50 gift certificate for

I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from this contest since I was a big fan of the film so I’ll try and remember to keep up with it and relay the updates to you guys.


fifth element t-shirt

I remember really liking The Fifth Element when I was younger (which I’m sure had nothing to do with Milla Jovovich, oh, and that’s an ever so slightly NSFW link), it was on TV recently and I was worried that it wouldn’t stand up to the test of time, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable watch.

Clearly I’m not the only one who has fond memories of it since our buddies at released this tee a few days ago. If you’re wondering why the face doesn’t look quite right, I’d suspect this has something to do with licensing since those guys actually take notice of that kind of thing.

han shot first t-shirt

Very nice cartoon styled Star Wars design featuring the moment when Han shot first.

jedi thumb trick t-shirt

This fun design is the latest from the official collaboration between Mighty Fine and Lucas Arts. I think that this kind of design works better as a t-shirt because you get to see the reaction of the person looking at it, but they’ve offered all the previous designs as t-shirts and hoodies so it’s hardly a surprise that this one has all those options available too.

Tees are $25 and the hoodie is $49, the design is available until February 5th, at which point it will disappear… forever!

darth maul 3d t-shirt

I’m a bit late posting this week’s limited edition Might Fine x Star Wars t-shirt (they’re only available for one week, Monday-Sunday), but to be entirely honest that doesn’t worry me too much this week since I’m not that excited about the design. I get what they’re going for (it is to promote the 3D version of Episode 1, after all), but for me it’s too promotional and not fan-friendly enough, whereas last week’s design was just delightful. Hopefully I’ll be more excited by next week’s offering. Available as a guys or girls t-shirt for $25 and a unisex hoodie for $49.

joy division star wars t-shirt

In the run up to Star War Episode 1 being released in 3D next month (an event I’m sure no one will complain about ridiculous amounts as if George Lucas literally robbed them of a childhood) Might Fine have teamed up with LucasFilm to release limited edition designs that will be available for one week and one week only. This week (until Sunday 15th) they have the above Joy Division inspired design created by Reece Ward, who is of course no stranger to HYA or Star Wars. You can pick up this design as a tee for men or women for $25, or as a hoodie for $49.


wall-e t-shirt It’s no secret that I am a big fan of 8-bit t-shirts. I think that the low resolution of the artwork reminds you that the image was created on a computer, and that contrasts well with a t-shirt, which I still think of as being a garment that is fairly natural and created by hand, even though that isn’t really the case anymore.

Mighty Fine are been on a bit of a spree at the moment, their releases have been frequent and impressive and as you’ve probably gathered from the title of this post I feel that this latest release of retro 8 bit t-shirts. Wall-E & Eve are clearly featured on one of the tees, and you’ll find characters from Sesame Street, Monsters Inc., and The Muppets in some of the other designs.

3 New Hello Kitty design from Mighty Fine

by Andy on December 9, 2011

hello kitty t-shirt

When it comes to Japanese pop culture it doesn’t get much more iconic than Hello Kitty, so I’m sure that Mighty Fine are really glad that they’ve been given the opportunity to release original designs featuring the cute little cat. They’ve got quite a few Hello Kitty designs in their store, but the three above at the latest, showing her as a bandit with a heart on her bow. The pink shirt will set you back $25 and the other two are $30 each. Kawaii!


muppets design contest

To be honest, I’m not sure whether I should be calling these guys, We Love Fine, or Mighty Fine, they seem to use all three fairly interchangeably, but I am sure that they’re producing some of the finest licensed tees right now, so they can call themselves whatever they want as long as they keep up the quality.

Yesterday they launched a couple of big design contests for The Muppets and Steampunk (with total grand prizes of up to $3,000 and $2,000, respectively), and I know that a lot of HYA readers are designers, so I thought I’d pass the information on since that amount of cash will probably be pretty tempting. Submissions are open from now until early in October, after which the voting period begins.

star wars stormtrooper crossbones t-shirt If I were to link to every shirt up there in the gallery I think I’d be here all night, so I’m just going to point you to the main Mighty Fine site and hunt them down yourself, their navigation is pretty good. Loads of cool shirts in this release, as I’ve said before Mighty Fine seem to be really good with treating their licenses with a lot of respect with the aim of satisfying fans rather than making a quick buck off slapping a logo on a shirt.
