HOT CHICKS AND MOVIES IN FLORESCENT 8-BIT

Another Castle is one of many unfinished projects I’ve had on the backburner. It first started about five or six years ago. The idea was to take original photos of girls in cosplay or cool outfits or whatever, turn it into pixel art with crazy colors to make it look like 8-bit graffiti or something, and then plop it on limited edition t-shirts.

The diamond logo was meant to be reminiscent of video games like Sonic or Final Fantasy where you have to collect different colored gems and crystals, but then Diamond Supply Co. became huge and I didn’t wan’t people to think I was jacking their steeze or whatever. I’m prety attached to the logo, but I guess I could just use the weird little castle-looking thingy in between the diamonds as a logo instead. Idunno.

The project never came to fruition because I’m unemployed as beans and rely on freelance video production jobs to pay the bills. Starting a brand. It turns out, starting a brand is pretty impossible without a decent amount of startup money. I thought about taking the idea to Kickstarter or something, but I’m super non-confident about pretty much every idea I come up with and get excited about.

I guess I’m shamelessly posting about it here to see if anyone else would be into it. Let me know by commenting, liking, or reblogging or whatever. We’ll see what happens.

STAR WARS X VANS SUMMER 2014

Laid-back beachy summer vibes join forces with a galaxy far, far away with this collection of sneakers, bags, and hats from Star Wars and Vans. There’s some cool little details like Yoda hiding in the flower patterns and Boba Fett in the camo.

And if you’ve ever wondered what a Wookie skating a bowl would look like, check out the video below.

Custom Freddy Krueger Jordans

These hand painted Air Jordan 3's by GB Customs perfectly capture the iconic look of Freddy Krueger from his his trademark striped sweater to the bloody flesh and hints of silver to represent his claws. Reebok actually had a few Freddy kicks back in the day, but they definitely weren’t as nice as these.

Jimmy Choo Makes Camo Cool Again

Okay, so the whole “camo” thing in menswear/streetwear for the past year or two has gotten pretty played out. Leave it to Jimmy Choo to switch it up with his “Porn Camo.” It’s like regular camo, but with silhouettes of nekkid ladies instead of ambiguous blobs.

You can get the Jimmy Choo iPad cases and stole above from RESISTR for way more money than you’d probably care to spend on such things.

The Suburban Hypebeast: A New Breed of Hoodlum
Over the past two years, I’ve noticed a new trend in my neck of the woods. Those little obnoxious teenagers that everyone loves so much have been changing and mutating. These kids used to wear $10 ironic shirts they got at Target and a sports hat. Now all of a sudden, they’re wearing shirts and snapbacks from Obey, Supreme, Diamond Supply, Crooks & Castles, and all sorts of other streetwear brands. Where did that come from? Where are kids seeing this stuff that makes them want to buy it? And where the hell are they getting the money for all this gear?
Congrats, kid. Your mom bought you a G-Shock. Now get the fuck off my lawn.
