OTL GAMING HOLIDAY GUIDE 2012—FASHION: TEES
Tees are a great staple for your wardrobe but also make excellent gifts for the fashionable gamers on your shopping list. Tees are functional all year round even in the Winter because you can layer them with a long sleeve shirt, jacket or hoodie. You can even sneak your favorite gaming tees into more formal holiday gatherings by pairing them with a cardigan or blazer. In the end, the fact is that these tees are just too cool to leave at home in your closet and need to be worn proudly.
Hero’s Voyage by Zac Gorman
Ahoy, gamers! Even if you didn’t like Wind Waker, you can’t argue against that this is one badass, Legend of Zelda design. Zac Gorman, the illustrator behind Magical Game Time, and Fangamer delayed the launch of the shirt to ensure the Hylian in the design was translated correctly. Now, that’s true dedication to quality for the fans. T-shirts are available in unisex and women’s sizes from Fangamer for $22. Purchase it here.
Pokémon Anatomy from BustedTees
I dissect you, Pikachu! Nothing like the holidays to make you want to understand and study the inner workings of your favorite Pokémon. These tees are a must-have for the aspiring Pokémon Doctor, Professor or science nerd. The BustedTees Pokémon Anatomy collection includes Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Pikachu. Tees of the collection come in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes for $20. Hoodies are also available for $40. Purchase it here.
7Kingdoms by Bitmap’d
Do you have a friend who is obsessed with Super Mario 3? This friend argues that the Tanooki Suit was the best Mario item and replays Super Mario 3 at least once a week. Whether you know that friend or you’re that Mario 3 obsessed friend, this tee is great for all Mario fans. The subtle design lets gamers recognize that you’re a Mario Bros. fan but to the untrained eye it’ll be just another cool shirt. 7Kingdoms is available in red and green. The colors are perfect to wear for a holiday party if you want to be festive but don’t want to rock the
ugly tacky holiday sweater. Available for $18.95 in unisex sizes. Purchase it here.
Bear & Bird by Ashley Davis
There’s never been a friendship quite like the one between a bear and a bird. Take yourself back to Spiral Mountain every time you wear this tee. You can reflect on how you helped to save Banjo’s sister from the evil clutches of Gruntilda through collecting musical notes, Jiggies and Jinjos. This adorable t-shirt perfectly captures the playful characters and colorful worlds that you explored in the Banjo & Kazooie series. Don’t worry Mumbo Jumbo fans, you get an shiny pin featuring your favorite transfiguring shaman with purchase of this shirt. Bear & Bird is available in men’s and women’s sizes for $22 on Fangamer. Purchase it here.
