Not really a fan of hockey jerseys with the number prominently featured on the front of the jersey (like the current Dallas Stars jerseys, which are about to be retired), but for a Quidditch-themed hockey jersey I’ll make an exception.
Besides adding numbers to the sleeves, the only other major change was removing the hoodie pocket outline from the lower front of the jersey.
Rival house Slytherin gets a similar design. Seems all the Quidditch teams share a basic logo and jersey template, which is a shame because I hoped for more unique identities.
Here is an alternate look with the crests enlarged:
I believe any of these would look sharp on a hockey or lacrosse team. Heck, any geek in general really.
Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw will eventually get designs, stay tuned for those.
My first Lord of the Rings hockey jersey design! Truth be told this was actually commissioned by Jeff B. for his son Joseph, a die-hard LOTR fan and ice hockey player. I’m very happy to deliver this design for both of them. Thanks for letting me share the design here, guys!
All the imagery is from the original films (The Two Towers, mostly). The front and shoulder crests take cues from flags seen in the Rohan throne room. The back neck patch is the actual flag of Rohan, the one seen falling to the ground in the film (just prior to Aragorn and Gandalf’s arrival in Rohan). The ‘RR’ was my own touch (otherwise it would’ve been another horse), inspired by the Rolls Royce logo.
If you’d like to hire me for some design work please send me an email with your idea and I can provide a quote.
My all-time most-wanted hockey jersey: The Fantastic Four. Can’t explain it, I just really dig that blue. I only featured the back of this black version previously, but here it is in all its glory.
A simpler design than the first time this was trotted out, I’m going for a cleaner look here. Hopefully a hockey team will adopt this, because who wouldn’t want their team to be called the Space Rangers?
UPDATE: The main logo was updated (if you ordered this, you are getting this logo!), also a small laser light was added to the right forearm (not pictured):
Shades of the arc reactor, this Pokeball design gets a bit more detail this time out compared to before, but retains its simplicity. No individual Pokemon will be featured, but there is plenty of room to add your own badges, as someone in my Facebook group pointed out.
Do you want any of these to happen? Please like, tweet, and comment. I’m currently seeking candidates for March offers.
In the recent Battlestar Galactica series, we are introduced to the sport of Pyramid, which is a hybrid of handball, lacrosse, and basketball. This was actually a nod to the original Battlestar show, which featured Pyramid as a playing card game.
In the overall scheme of the new show, the sport was a throwaway device. It served as the background for one main character (who used to play professionally), and the occasional recreational diversion for the crew. Really just window dressing in the world-building of the show.
The short-lived spinoff show Caprica actually went a step further and offered a glimpse into the sport itself. We got to see just how big Pyramid was – pretty much like the NFL in terms of scope and popularity. Large stadiums packed to the brim, with lots of fanfare and TV coverage — the whole nine yards. Even some actual gameplay was shown, though its rules are still not quite clear.
Between the two recent shows, not a whole lot of league and team design is established. We get to see one team logo, and hear reference to several other teams, but that is all.
So here are two shoe companies that translate perfectly to hockey jerseys: Converse and Adidas. Mostly because of their iconic logos and striping. Other companies like Nike or Reebok don’t make the leap (despite the latter making NHL jerseys currently, and the former being a big hockey apparel player in the 90′s). And both jerseys look great! Maybe these companies will consider adding hockey jerseys to their apparel lines?
What really knocks these designs out of the park are the lace-up collars on the jerseys, which look just like shoe laces. I did my best to add shoe accents for this area, like the Adidas ‘tongue’ logo and the Converse toe tip.
Other companies I considered were British Knights and K-Swiss. Might eventually get around to making those designs one day.
No plans to offer these! Although I would seriously kill many Bothan Spies for that sexy Converse jersey.
EDIT: This is not a Hulk Hogan jersey, this is a WWF jersey. All the jerseys I offer are customizable, so I would just personally choose ‘Hulkster’ for mine (no plans to offer this one yet).
I believe most geeks have a soft spot for old-school WWF wrestling. Wrestlers were larger-than-life characters back in the 80′s and 90′s, and seemed to be just about everywhere. Cartoons, arcade video games, toys, you name it. I had the fortune of growing up in Calgary, so I was treated to Maple Leaf Wrestling (WWF) and Stampede Wrestling growing up, so I may be biased in my outlook.
This here is a simple WWF jersey, which looks pretty 80′s if I may say so. The powder blues were pretty popular back then for team sports (starting to make a comeback). Plus the striping is evocative of the 80′s era Flames and Bruins.
Here is a bonus for the internet: There are no decent high-res images of the old-school WWF logo online, so I made one the other night for a reader who is actually making one of these! It’s just vector art, and is a far cry from the original airbrushed logo, but it’s a good start for those in need:
