  • Shirt Ideas

    Howdy. Willing to help with the shirt designs again this year. Since the theme is Rise of the Machines, do we want to do something like Terminator? Start throwing out your ideas, and we'll get this ball rolling.

    12guage autoloader, .45 long slide, Uzi 9mm, and a Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.

    Terminator seems full of material for a shirt. Perhaps a graphic using the terminator's view

      I like it. We can take any pic and add the infra-red or night-vision effects, then add any text. I take it you're in charge of ordering again? Once everyone kind of decides, I can start putting up some drafts, and get you the final vector files. :)

        First thing I thought of was this picture design but instead of a human face use the (warped) image of the Defcon smiley.

          Reminded me of Lawnmower man. Now I have to go watch that again.

            I say we go with something more like the rise of the machines (guns)...
            - catapult
            - blunder bust
            - black powder
            - single shot cartridge gun
            - revolver
            - etc
            - etc
            - etc
            - BFG 8000

            or something of the sort. Run with the Defcon main theme but make it our own in the sense that it's heavily DC shoot oriented.

              For DC21 we did a version of "the evolution of man" with weapons like that, with a drone at the end. not sure if you're thinking the same kind of left-to-right evolution. That shirt and 19's "No liquids, no gels, no aerosols" are my two favorites.

                Aw shucks I helped on both of those. :>

              What about just don't a simplified version of the idea... Cannon on front of back and a laser deathray on the opposite side... I think this would cause loss of people to question what Defcon event has a cannon logo? Hu? What sorry is that... (instant new friend)

                i will admit that "Rise of the Machines" made me think of Bullet Bill from Super Mario ;-)

                have we ever done an 8-bit shirt?



                "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

                  I'd be down with an 8 bit shirt as long as we could do it without a single giant screen print. I can't stand the feeling of wearing a sheet of vinyl :P

                    Let me talk to my graphic design friend, and see if we can print something without making it a giant sheet of vinyl. :)

                      yeah, we would only want the principal elements rendered (and even then sometimes in an outline) and never would the sky/ground/etc be filled in

                          I'll start the list in a new thread once we have something to print.

                            I dig this idea! Also the No fate scene could be cool.
