Haha, I made a t-shirt a while ago showing star control ships destroying starwars/star trek ships. Not as well done as the 2 on PONAF, but it was fun.

I'd upload a picture, but I dont have web access..

It appears I've found the right place to show off my obsessive fanboy-ism.  Hooray!  :)

Getting a shirt made is a no-brainer: there are literally dozens of custom t-shirt shops online, and most have "design studios" built-in to their webpages, which allows you to submit a custom design + shipping address, and you can enjoy your very own one-of-a-kind t-shirt a week later.  The only trick to it is that most will not do custom prints on black shirts, for a variety of reasons involving the how the screenprinting process works.  Of course, this is only a concern for me, because I only wear black.  If you do not share this eccentricity, then the field to choose from is wide indeed.

Getting art assets for such an endeavour is similarly a no-brainer: crack open the content files and feast on the chewy goodness inside.  In my case, I took the Kohr-Ah captain portrait, enlarged it and rounded the corners with GIMP, and that was it.

This shirt was actually "Plan B".  "Plan A" was to beg and plead with Arne to draw me something nice to put on a shirt, but I decided that doing so would be ostentacious, even by my standards.  ;)  Of course, if he were to offer up designs on his own, who could object to that?

"Plan B" is going to be more recognized by fellow dorks as you're walking around town, though.  Superb!

Good on you mate, the shirt is GeekChic.

That is definitely Geek Chic  ;)
<does a Google Search>
Now do I go for a Kzer-Za or a Pkunk?  :D

Sorry for bumping a slightly-aged thread.... but I've always wanted to make one of these:

"I sold 100 crew members to the Druuge... and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!"

:D

That's great. I've had a few geek shirts made
but none in the SC2 theme. Maybe it's time
to expand. Something semi-religious maybe...

"We would follow the path of Now and Forever"
has a nice ring to it.

I am thinking of having a custom shirt made to be a scene in nethack. All I'm waiting for is inspiration for what to put on it...

I was thinking the Plane of  Air, with my d and the comment 'Toto, I don't think we're in the dungeons of doom any more'. But I'm not sure whether you can even bring a dog to the elemental plane of air, so...

Or maybe just a random map with a bunch of a on one side and a bunch of o on the other, with me and my d in between. Or perhaps I can go all fancy-pants and have two @ and a couple J surrounding me.

But as for a SC2 shirt, I'm kind of at a loss as to what I would want on it.

What about a picture of Commandor Haynes
with a surprised look on his face saying:
"What the hell is that?"

A dungeon level filled with puddings. One open ice box. The message "You die.".
Caption: "TODO: clean fridge"

  • The Safe Ones, with "Huffi-Muffi-Guffi"
  • An Ur-Quan Kzer-Za with the caption "Slave Shields R Us".
  • Talana, with caption "'Size matters' - Gargamel"

The pudding gave me the idea of a T-Shirt from my favorite Cowboy Bebop episode 11 (I think) where the Ganymede Lobster roamed the ship.

The picture would be Spike pushing the fridge out the airlock and the caption of "Don't forget to clean the fridge..."

I'm going to get the Orz t-shirt with "Don't forget to enjoy the *special sauce*!"

My descent into obsessive fanboy-ism continues unabated.  I bought a new cellphone recently, and among its features are Bluetooth support, the ability to upload files to it, and the ability to play MP3s as ringtones.  Combine all three, and you get:

My new cellphone ringtone! (http://www.submedia.net/~nic/uqm/kaboom.mp3)

You know you want it.  :)

Well, if wanting a Star Control shirt makes you a big, fat dork, then that's the first time I've ever been called fat!

I, personally, would prefer to have a shirt that says:
"We come in Peace"

You know what graphic that would use.

You're a very dedicated person for actually making a t-shirt, and very very very brave for walking in public wearing it.  I respect that very much :D

I once thought of just having a picture of a ship in the front, with the ship name underneath:

For example, it would say Fury, and have the Pkunk ship, or say Intruder, with the VUX, or Terminator with the Yehat.  Well you get the idea.

Nice shirt :D
