Geek Apparel of the Week: Dragon Charmer and Gunner’s Den



?? I love it when the one-shirt-a-day companies have something TR appropriate on Geek Apparel day; it makes my life so much easier (now that it’s particularly hard). Ript has this shirt, starring a geisha and a dragon — and a bunch of 20-sided dice for no apparent reason — on sale today only for $10. The best part is that no one but other nerds will realize those things are dice.

?? And whether you consider this a favor to TR‘s European readers or a punishment to American ones, the UK’s Dark Bunny Tees has this fantastic Dawn of the Dead-inspired shirt, advertising the gun store from the Monroeville mall, as seen in the movie. My favorite part is that the family has been mildly munched on by zombies, but very subtly so — it’s easy to miss. It’s 18 pounds, not counting shipping. If you want it, hurry –only 100 were made.
