A little mid-week inspiration for you, perhaps? I’m anticipating a weekend full of collector bliss (followed by “collector regret” once I have to lug stuff through the subway, then “collector blackout” once I hit the couch and, finally, “collector denial” once I get that credit card bill). But, I know – some of you don’t need another 5′ long S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier (though, seriously, how could you not?). Some of you keep asking for the so-called “important” things in life. Seems you’re more interested in staying fully clothed than having an awesome collection of 5″ figures. Fair enough.
In the interest of keeping you fully clothed, I bring you this rundown of How To Dress Your Nerd.
It’s getting colder now and we’re finally approaching something like winter. That, my friends, means it is now prime hoodie weather. Hoodies are the perfect attire choice for all occasions – and these hoodies? These hoodies make all occasions just a little bit more awesome. Keep out the cold and look like a Transformer while you’re doing it. You can get either Optimus Prime or Grimlock. Each hoodie is $60 plus shipping. Act fast – they’re selling out.
Like the throwback style but want a bit more subtlety? Check out these cool Star Trek shirts, then. Based on the fantastic retro prints by artist Juan Ortiz, these shirts are a subdued and classy way to fly your nerd colors. And – extra bonus – they’re releasing more designs each month. Not only will you be able to collect them all – you also might amass a collection great enough that you’ll never have to do laundry again. Check them out here on welovefine.com.
Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking. “Hoodies? Shirts? But, if I’m getting that fancy I’m probably going to be expected to put on pants!” Have no fear. Pull this on and your awesomeness will overcome all questions about pants. It’s soft. It’s luxurious. It opens up endless potential for jokes. And, did I mention, it also travels in time? How could you resist? (Okay, full disclosure: probably does not travel in time.) Snag it for $69.99 from the ever-awesome ThinkGeek.
Still not convinced that some TARDIS-blue terrycloth will adequately ensconce your awesomeness? Fine. Splurge a bit on this. You’ll have to do a bit of finishing on it, but imagine the pride you’ll feel when you don this at your next Con, Halloween party, staff meeting or trip to the grocery store. Crank up the Black Sabbath, cultivate that ironic little beard and act like the billionaire playboy philanthropist you know you were born to be. It could be yours for a paltry $850 + $35 shipping – just make sure you pull on your bathrobe before meeting UPS at the door.
