First the T-shirts. There is an inconceivable Princess Bride shirt from Ripple Junction. A really nice Princess Bride raglan. The black and white combination means it’s easy to wear anywhere, and I love it. It’s got the three lost circus performers, Vizzini, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya on it, and it’s extremely comfortable. There is a very good chance that it will join the BB8 shirt from February as a favorite shirt.
There’s also a Goonies T-shirt from Smartex. I have to admit, I have never once watched The Goonies, but the shirt has gotten me to put it on hold at the library. I like the treasure-map motif, and the explorer cutouts add extra interest. It’s a strong design, and the coloring is good–very practical, attractive, and a color anyone can wear.
And then there are the Star Trek leggings, which I rather wish were a T-shirt with the same pattern. It is a glorious pattern with the Enterprise flying through nebulae and star fields, and the colors would be fantastic on a shirt. As leggings…maybe I can find a skinny friend who likes Star Trek? For any non-skinny person, these are going to be extraordinarily unflattering.
And then there are the socks. I mentioned in my April Loot Crate review that the subscription was sure to fill your sock drawer, and this confirms my opinion with two new pairs of geeky socks.
There’s a Legend of Zelda pair featuring a very pixelated tree. Honestly, I’m not sure anyone will recognize which old and pixelated game the socks are from, but any game player will recognize the pixel look.
I’ve never played Legend of Zelda myself, so I cannot be sure about that tree. What do you think, players? Would you recognize the origin without being told? If so, it’s a pretty good in group/out group sort of setup.
Finally, the little booklet folds out into an improbable quest map of fantasy and science fiction lands that makes my heart happy.
So, until next month, I leave you with one important question:
I do not mean to pry, but you don’t by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
