Lisa and I put the spotlight on some of our favorite video games fashion vendors including:
General Goods the creator of adorable and affordable geeky jewelry inspired by video games, television, books, movies and more. I want that Buffy necklace.
Sanshee, known for their Pokemon Gym Badge Pins, creates a variety of t-shirts and accessories inspired by gaming and anime.
Bitmap’d is a small clothing line packed with high quality t-shirts with subtle references to the video games that we all love. It’s not a surprise that Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist is a fan like us.
Here’s your chance to win a free tee from Bitmap’d!
The tees given away will be slightly irregular, hence the “Broken Bits”. These t-shirts consist of loose threading or a tiny hole. They weren’t at their highest quality fit for sale, but are still good enough to wear. So why not give’em away instead of tossing them? And here we have our first Broken Bits giveaway!
For your chance to win, just follow these 2 steps:
1. “Like” Bitmap’d on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/BitmapdApparel
2. “Share” the Bitmap’d fan page on your wall. (The share button is located in the drop down menu under the lower right side of your header image.)
And that’s it!
3 winners will be chosen at random on 4/12/13 (next Friday)
The prize giveaway will be our Super Castlevania inspired tee “Vampire Hunter B”. http://www.bitmapd.com/products/vampirehunterb
Tee sizes will be chosen randomly.

OTL Gaming Holiday Guide 2012—Fashion: Tees
Tees are a great staple for your wardrobe but also make excellent gifts for the fashionable gamers on your shopping list. Tees are functional all year round even in the Winter because you can layer them with a long sleeve shirt, jacket or hoodie. You can even sneak your favorite gaming tees into more formal holiday gatherings by pairing them with a cardigan or blazer. In the end, the fact is that these tees are just too cool to leave at home in your closet and need to be worn proudly.
Hero’s Voyage by Zac Gorman
Ahoy, gamers! Even if you didn’t like Wind Waker, you can’t argue against that this is one badass, Legend of Zelda design. Zac Gorman, the illustrator behind Magical Game Time, and Fangamer delayed the launch of the shirt to ensure the Hylian in the design was translated correctly. Now, that’s true dedication to quality for the fans. T-shirts are available in unisex and women’s sizes from Fangamer for $22. Purchase it here.
Pokémon Anatomy from BustedTees
I dissect you, Pikachu! Nothing like the holidays to make you want to understand and study the inner workings of your favorite Pokémon. These tees are a must-have for the aspiring Pokémon Doctor, Professor or science nerd. The BustedTees Pokémon Anatomy collection includes Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Pikachu. Tees of the collection come in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes for $20. Hoodies are also available for $40. Purchase it here.
7Kingdoms by Bitmap’d
Do you have a friend who is obsessed with Super Mario 3? This friend argues that the Tanooki Suit was the best Mario item and replays Super Mario 3 at least once a week. Whether you know that friend or you’re that Mario 3 obsessed friend, this tee is great for all Mario fans. The subtle design lets gamers recognize that you’re a Mario Bros. fan but to the untrained eye it’ll be just another cool shirt. 7Kingdoms is available in red and green. The colors are perfect to wear for a holiday party if you want to be festive but don’t want to rock the
uglytacky holiday sweater. Available for $18.95 in unisex sizes. Purchase it here.
Bear & Bird by Ashley Davis
There’s never been a friendship quite like the one between a bear and a bird. Take yourself back to Spiral Mountain every time you wear this tee. You can reflect on how you helped to save Banjo’s sister from the evil clutches of Gruntilda through collecting musical notes, Jiggies and Jinjos. This adorable t-shirt perfectly captures the playful characters and colorful worlds that you explored in the Banjo & Kazooie series. Don’t worry Mumbo Jumbo fans, you get an shiny pin featuring your favorite transfiguring shaman with purchase of this shirt. Bear & Bird is available in men’s and women’s sizes for $22 on Fangamer. Purchase it here.
