T-shirts: there’s moar

I've run out of nerdy/pop-culture t-shirts to wear! Remember the Nerd Awareness challenge to wear one every day? So far, I haven't missed a day, but I've already had to start recycling t-shirts because I've run out of them. Clearly, this is a sign I need more funky t-shirts, right? ;)

So, I showed you my first bunch of shirts in the post linked above plus this one... here's the rest of them!

It's a bunch of pillows, having a pillow fight with each other. How cute is that? I got this one from Threadless, during a sale where all t-shirts were only $10. However, for some obscure reason they filled out the Customs slip as "t-shirts, value: $300." Wait, what? Over here, you're actually allowed to import about $50 worth of items, per shipment, without having to pay import taxes, so the one tee would've been well below the limit. However, thanks to them listing that price, customs was suddenly all like "hey, you ordered $300 worth of merch, go pay $65 in import tax!" By filling out forms and waiting three months, I eventually managed to get about $45 of my $65 back, but that still makes it a pretty damn expensive t-shirt. I've kinda boycotted Threadless since. :P

I won't go into too much detail about this one, because I've done a whole blog post about it before. Mummy tee from The House of Madness.

Another Doctor Who tee, and this time it doesn't even feature a Dalek! ;) Instead, it features a cartoon version of the Doctor and Amy, peering through one of the "cracks" that were a running theme over the  course of the fifth season. I got this one from Qwertee.

I just realised this picture is more about my face than the t-shirt, isn't it. Well, I'm not putting the t-shirt back on right now, just to take another picture, over a week later. :P It simply features a big version of the Ubuntu logo.

This t-shirt promotes the Hack Square, the section run by Dutch and Belgian hackerspaces during the Chaos Communication Camp 2011. As far as I'm aware, it's not (yet) for sale anywhere.

This is probably the oldest nerdy tee I own. Remember how I talked about ScriptFrenzy and NaNoWriMo in my previous t-shirt post, as well as the writing post? The second year I did Nano, I bought the commemorative t-shirt as well. That's all the way back in 2003. You can't tell because of the overexposure (oh hai sun), but the white print is actually all crackled up. I think the OLL merch store also carries some leftover 2009 and 2008 shirts in addition to the 2010 one, but no, they don't go all the way back to the 2003 edition. ;)

Another webcomic t-shirt, this time featuring Lilah from Ctrl-Alt-Del. The speech balloon reads "Girls play videogames too. You'd know this if you got out of the house once in a while." One thing I don't like about this tee is that it's so short! As you can see, I'm wearing high-waisted jeans in this picture and I'm still showing an inch of skin between where my t-shirt ends and my jeans begin. It's practically a crop top.

Okay, I suppose this is cheating just a tiny bit. I'm wearing an asymmetrical top, which tends to slide rather far down my left shoulder and is slightly sheer as well, so I like to wear a tank top underneath and not expose my bra to the world. Instead of wearing the plain black tank top that I usually put on underneath, I wore my NERD tank instead. I'm not sure if this technically counts as "wearing a nerdy t-shirt for nerd awareness month", considering I put a non-nerdy top over the actual nerdy one. :P Available at The Nerd Machine.

And so we've reached the last of my stack of nerdy tees! If I've counted all the photos correctly, this is my 15th t-shirt. This was the commemorative t-shirt for our eth0 2010 summer camp. There aren't any of these brown babydoll type tees left over, but I think there are still a few guys' ones in navy.

And that's it! Hope you've enjoyed the long list of tees... if you have a funky t-shirt collection of your own, feel free to share! :)
