Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: ShirtCon Tees collection

Shirt.Woot ushered in convention season with their especially nerdy ShirtCon Tees plus sale. As you’d expect, most of the classic geek convention favorites like anime, movies, and comic books were parodied, with some jokes around the specifics of conventions themselves. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Glasses!!!!! by rglee129 collects pop culture characters with glasses in common, all building to a conflict between Superman and Cyclops in the final row.

Nicest Surprise: RetroCon by Mekazoo impressed me with its vintage styling and bold, simple humor in voting, and should look great printed.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!

Shirt.Woot’s Sci-Fi Shirts derby voting highlights

The future looked bright (and dark, and funny…) in Shirt.Woot‘s Sci-Fi Shirts derby. As you’d expect, pop culture references to the major sci-fi franchises were very much in style, though there’s also a smattering of designs that play with broad sci-fi concepts instead of specifics. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Klaatu Barada St. Nikto by EwingKlipspringer might be pretty darn early for the holidays (it’s not even Halloween yet!) but this is a retro reference that would give a lot of older geeks a very merry Christmas.

Sc-Fi-Fest by thehookshot translates some major sci-fi properties into band logos, a joke that becomes even funnier with the “I Survived…” title that highlights how deadly those franchises can be to their minor characters.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Animal Warfare collection

Birds, mammals and more fought it out in Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Animal Warfare plus sale. Some are actively in battle, others are just preparing themselves to fight. But no matter the situation, it’s hard not to root for these animals! Here’s a look at what caught my eye this week…

Best of the Bunch: Feline Foes by Paxdomino is immaculately crafted, really communicating the action of the scene and the determined personalities of its cats.

Nicest Surprise: Dragonyarn by Apelad was a favorite of mine in voting, and I think its yarn texture will pop on the printed shirt.

Shirt.Woot’s ShirtCon derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot prepped their fans for convention season with the ShirtCon Shirts derby, packing entries with both concepts drawn from the convention experience and references to the pop culture properties that those conventions celebrate. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Syllablaze by chachachino turns Ghost Rider into a Ghost Writer, making for an entertainingly badass portrait of a struggling writer.

Retrocon by mekazoo delivers both excellent retro style and a smart, silly punchline that should appeal to fans of nostalgia.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot Derby #673: Sci-Fi Shirts

Expect an influx of futuristic fan favorites in Shirt.Woot‘s newest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #673: Sci-Fi Shirts

Aliens and spaceships and lasers, Oh my! Derby #673 will focus on the wonderfully wide worlds of science fiction. (Which, by the way is a lot more than Star Wars, Star Trek, Hitchhiker, Firefly, and Dr. Who. So let’s not get too myopic). Designs can include everything from common sci-fi tropes like aliens and stuff, to parodies of sci-fi pop culture. No cream tees.

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd). Additionally, other designs may be selected for a Plus sale on the following Monday, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: (Nearly) NSFW collection

Shirt.Woot artists played with boundaries and puns in the Derby Editor’s Choice: (Nearly) NSFW plus sale. Due to the theme, the designs joke about concepts like nudity and vulgarity in ways that stay just this side of decency, which may limit their appeal for some audiences- although others may love it, especially since this is seldom-visited territory for Woot! Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Too Old for This Sheet by Odysseyroc is the perfect costume shirt for Halloween grumps.

Nicest Surprise: Asparacuss by Apelad shows that sometimes vegetables don’t like you either!

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Wieners is definitely just about award-winning hotdogs.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!
