Shirt.Woot Derby #665: The SHIRTain of Youth

Shirt.Woot is feeling young at heart with their latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #665: The SHIRTain of Youth

Youth is a state of mind. It’s also in a state of denial that summer is ending. But next week’s derby will embrace the new school year with a spirit of ‘junior joie de vivre.’ We’re looking for your best kid-friendly designs that will impress all those hip half-pints and mod munchkins out there. So get in touch with your inner-child, and submit your bestest shirts for young shoulders! Cream tees are not invited to the play date.

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 ROYGBIV derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s ROYGBIV derby asked for designs that sported every color of the rainbow, and artists happily complied with pieces that exploited the lack of color restrictions. If you’re a fan of wild, colorful art and rainbow gradients, there’s a lot to choose from in this group. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Crystal Cactus by krane0223 turns the usually sparse image of desert life on its head with colorful abundance.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Teacups by walmazan imagines the usually rough and tumble battling turtles as delicate teacups… but despite their dainty ways, these fellows are still ready to fight!

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 Tribes derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Tribes derby was about groups of people and the many ways they identify themselves, which led to a lot of diversity in approach and subject matter from artists. Personality traits and pop culture feature heavily, but it’s fair to say that there’s something for everyone in the mix. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

D.A.S. by porkyroebuck pleases dog owners with its minimal look and the diversity of dogs shown.

Official Procrastinator Seal by ormadraws uses the iconic Nintendo Seal to show how procrastinators are preferring to spend their time.

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 #663: ROYGBIV

Color is crucial in Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #663: ROYGBIV

Now that our color limits are a thing of the past, we’re celebrating with a derby that limits your colors to the colors of the rainbow! Each design must contain some variation/hue of all 7 colors in the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. You can use them however you want, but every color must be present. Limitations: NO RAINBOWS, and no cream tees. You’re better than that.

Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd).

Shirt.Woot’s Movie Mashups derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot artists had a lot of fun mixing pop culture properties into unique parodies for the Movie Mashups derby. As you’d expect, geek favorites like comic book franchises, Princess Bride and Star Wars were especially popular. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

For Baron of Cloud City by Jennzilla keeps things simple with its combination of Napoleon Dynamite and Star Wars, but that’s a big part of why the humor works so well.

Visit Isle Beback by rglee129 might be the silliest Schwarzenegger shirt of all time with references to all his most famous roles in a beach scene context, and then caps the whole thing off with a gloriously goofy pun.

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 #662: Tribes

Shirt.Woot has group allegiances and identities in mind with their latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #662: Tribes

Humans are social. We have an innate desire to “belong” (even us introverts who prefer to “belong” from a distance). So next week’s derby is a celebration of belonging; of expressing (or confessing) loud and proud all the different tribes or groups we can belong to. So bring on the Band Nerds, the Gamers, the Couch Potatoes, the People-who-don’t-like-star-wars-but-are-too-afraid-to-admit-it, and submit your very best “tribe” designs. Just leave politics, the cultural appropriation of actual tribes, and cream tees out of it.

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.
