Geek culture has successfully permeated the public consciousness (cue girls declaring “I’m such a geek eh”) and is a pop culture moneymaker these days. Because of this, it’s much easier to find wearable merch—and you don’t even have to wait for events like APCC. A lot of local stores have gotten in on the act so we’re already sure that you’ve seen loads of Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and more floating around. So we decided to focus on the other realms such as video games and anime that have licensed threads. The following clothing items definitely aren’t the jej oversized, multi-colored anime polo shirts of yore, nor are they badly silk-screened knockoffs. Suit up!

1) Cool Japan Shop for… Neon Genesis Evangelion!

P1,151 (Asuka, Misato, and Pen Pen shirts)

Based on the retro anime that deconstructed the mecha genre and introduced '90s emo kids to nihilistic and existentialist ideas—as well as all-time great waifu Asuka Langley Soryu. Whether you’re into the feisty redhead or cute mascot Pen Pen, this shop’s gotchu fam.

2) Globe Lifestyle for… Pokémon!

P495 each

 

Don your fave Starter Pokémon, in graphic tee or jersey-style tops, as you go on raids and search for the PoGo Legendaries. Fortunately, some of these shirts are unisex so you can at least sport matching couple shirts with the GF without looking like a total cornball.

3) Topology PH for… Resident Evil and Street Fighter!

P650 each

The prints feature some badass designs (Umbrella logo) and some cheekier ones (Nemesis eating a bowl of cereal) if you don’t take yourself too seriously. There’s even some Pinoy culture thrown into one of the SF prints, which features a pedicab. With various prints to suit your preferences, we’re Shoryuken find a shirt that’s just for you.

4) J!NX for…Overwatch!

Around P1,120-P3,500

 

Overwatch has the classic deep Blizzard lore and art that lends itself really well to clothing design. J!NX ships to most countries around the world including the Philippines but expect that it will take awhile for your payload to arrive (compared to local online stores), but it will be well worth the wait.

We’re digging the in-game jokes that will help you easily ID a fellow LoL player in the crowd. Unfortunately, you can’t buy these in the store and can only purchase them during the annual Rampage convention. But if you’re patient enough (or you’re an in-game camper), you can wait until next year rolls around.
