Geek Shirts

So, I've scoured the geek shirt world, looking for some very specific designs, and I can never find exactly what I want. I would find something similar, but it just wasn't the right wording or style. I realized that my ideas probably weren't available because maybe I was a nut, or maybe no one had thought of them before so my obvious solution was to design them myself.

I checked out all the self-made t-shirt stores, and the one that has the best selection of original geekwear with the lowest cheese factor seems to be redbubble. They have a very professional look, and you can order shirts in a variety of colors and styles. Plus, they only accept .PNG files, rather than having an online editor program, so you know that the sellers have to have some design competence.

A lot of my shirts are "Keep Calm" style spoofs, because I love that kind of stuff. Most of them are Doctor Who, because I'm obsessed, but I threw a little Harry Potter and Futurama in there. 





I loved designing these. I am excited about the idea of being totally outfitted in my own designs at Comic Con, considering most people don't come up to admire your shirt, they come up to tell you that they have the same shirt, and I like to be more original than that.

That being said, if someone came to Comic Con in one of my shirts, I'd probably die of excitement.

  2. I will! Your headband will probably take a while to arrive (like 6+ weeks). I actually emailed the seller asking about it because it was taking so long, but it showed up eventually. There is/was something going on with the UK mail system.

    I'm probably going to order a second one soon and alternate them.
