Well, San Diego's Comic Con may be over, but I am still feeling the after-effects.
Considered as one of the biggest comic conventions ever, San Diego's Comic Con is the place where every nerds (and nerds-at-heart) gather. From cosplayers to comic book artists, it is one of the best places to be if you are (and will always be) an avid comic book fan. I was one of the comic book fans who attended the said event and it was a really big success. I also got to see a lot of movie teasers from the upcoming superhero movies from Marvel and DC. I honestly think that it's about time for Superman and Batman to have a movie together, but that is for another story.
And what better way to commemorate this special event than to wear your very own customised tshirt?
I love custom tshirts. Period. Even during my early college days, I'd wear tshirts with Star Wars or Star Trek designs and logos during classes. Back then, they did not have the big comic conventions that we have right now, but there were still conventions where comic book artists showed off new issues of their comics. And still, I wore my custom print tshirts. I was proud of them, to say the least. But just like most clothes, my favorite custom tshirts started to fade away. Still, I wore them but this time, only indoors.
Fortunately, we live in an age where digital tshirt printing is already a possibility.
If you check the Internet, there are hundreds of companies that offer custom tshirt designs. It's a growing trend to wear tshirts with designs related to one's favorite cartoon or comic book character. As for myself, I have a tshirt designer where I got my favorite custom Star Wars designed tshirt for the San Diego Comic Con. I have always loved Star Wars and my room is filled with Star Wars inspired apparel. Now that the convention has ended, I'll be wearing the said tshirt whenever I go out with my friends at a bar or while shopping.
I know that it's still far off, but as for Comic Con 2014, I am thinking of the following designs:
"Keep Calm and Build the Deathstar" Shirt - I have always loved the Deathstar. That massive planet-like space station of doom has always haunted my mind ever since I first saw it in a theater as a kid. Now, I am thinking of adding the Deathstar in the "Keep Calm" phrase. It should be pretty cool, don't you think?
Captain America's Shield - I love the Captain's shield. However, I am thinking of having the Captain's shield in the center of the tshirt but the shield should be battle-scarred. Just like Captain America's shield in the Avengers, where it's full of blast marks and scratches.
Despicable Me's Minions - Well, I think we can all agree to this. The Minion's popularity have skyrocketed, thanks to the recently concluded "Despicable Me 2" movie. I have also loved the Minions since the first movie because I think that they're "...too fluffy I'm gonna die!"
Maybe I'll have a full body Minion grace the back of the shirt at that time. That will absolutely work.
