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.

GHOST IN THE SHELL' LOGICOMA SNEAKERS FROM REEBOK

It was two years ago that MadHouse first teamed up with Reebok for some Insta Pump Fury sneakers based on the Tachikomas from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Now the two powerhouses have joined forces once again, this time drawing inspiration from the Logicoma introduced in Ghost in the Shell: Arise. These highly limited kicks will be available at select Reebok retailers on June 21, including Styles in Tokyo, so keep a lookout.

8-BIT AVENGERS

Here’s a cool little t-shirt design by artist Robert Retiano featuring classic characters that have survived the 8-bit era of gaming as Marvel’s Avengers. There’s Donkey Kong as the Incredible Hulk, Link as Captain America, Mega Man as Iron Man, and Mario as Thor.

What oldschool video game characters would be Black Widow and Hawkeye?

30% off Threadless Simpsons Shirts

Those of you who don’t already know, I am a HUGE Simpsons fan. I own pretty much every 6-inch vinyl figure Kidrobot has created from the series and I can quote pretty much any episode from Seasons 7 or 8, so it kind of sucks seeing a deal like this when you’ve got absolutely no cash in your bank account.

But for those who do have money for the holidays: Threadless is having a 30% off sale on all their shirts that aren’t already $10, which includes this huge batch of Simpsons tees. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Homer’s muumuu design, from the episode “King-Size Homer," in which homer makes himself fat to claim disability so he could work from home.

Cop a shirt today. Threadless' 30% off sale ends on December 6.

Ziiiro Eclipse Watch

The Ziiiro Eclipse is a minimal, beautiful watch, taking inspiration directly from, obviously, a solar eclipse. It’s super stylish and looks like something out of Tron. The two small hands on the watch are for minutes/hours, with no numbers displayed on its surface. It’s also glow in the dark, which is super cool. Grab one on Ziiiro’s official site.
