New Mass Effect Hoodies are inbound!Posted 12:01 am on Tuesday, May 29th, 2012 by Adam "Kharakov" Kharatian
We are nerds. Big, huge, nerds that drool at the sight of anything with a “Limited Edition” sticker on it, if the product is of interest to us. Is it a crime to want an exclusive in a franchise that has given us some of the finest memories, taught important life lessons, or created a philosophical conundrum that will forever change our lives? No. This is why simply, these hoodies are AWESOME. Below are the originally offered hoodies in the BioWare online store upon the launch of Mass Effect 3. Pretty cool, but it’s only available in two forms and sold out within the first few hours.
Thanks to DeviantArt user Christine Schott, we will soon have a new amazing array of hoodies that represent all of our favorite Mass Effect characters! As recently stated by HER ( apparently insisting on the emphasis ):
BIOWARE TO TAKE ON THE HOODIE PROJECT!:
yup, thats right. I had a talk on the phone yesterday with a couple of people who are part of the team that make official mass effect apparel. they were really nice people, and I was a nervous wreck. XD it was agreed their designers will be taking on the hoodie project!
chances are my hoodies are nowhere near the final product, afterall I’m no true designer and haven’t got the slightest idea what looks good on clothing and what doesnt. I just conceptualized the idea. they will be redesigning the hoodies, and will sell a few as a trial run, and if it goes well more hoodies will be added I’m sure.
thus, the project so far I consider a success. in the end, it was all about making fun character hoodies that made me feel like my favorite mass effect character and all their memories were with me.
afterall some characters in the bioware store have been restricted to one sex, when really both male and female characters are loved by both male and female fans.
really I just wanted my tali clothing for mah womanly shape. D8 cough.
so, more details will be nailed out the next time I talk to them, so I’ll be letting you know how its coming along.
in case you were wondering, I am being compensated for my work. the details are also being worked out.
I know some say these are too geeky, but I can happily state I am a proud gamer and I am not afraid to run around with armor printed on fabric. XDD
once again because I can’t stop saying it, THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE FOR THE SUPPORT! YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN!
Although I highly disagree that these are too geeky, I am sure that any of us at NR would also be proud to wear these out and show our own gamer pride! No final production date has been set as of yet.
