I find this awesome!
Something unprecedented happened. I received a check – actually a cheque, since it was British – because some of you bought nifty things from Forbidden Planet via this site. Thank you!!!
How are you enjoying them? Are they working out?
I’m dead jealous. They’re on my wish list as well. If, like me, you have a passion for Doctor Who T-shirts, please have a look at the T-Shirt-O-Philia page, where some of the top sources for the clever wearables can be found.
It’s been a bit quiet, sorry. I was at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo! Never been to the rodeo before but I won a drawing via the American Red Cross for donating blood so yeeha!
But I come back to this: Tee Magnet (a sort of T-shirt aggregator) for Doctor Who. Holy moly – you know I have a weakness for tees. Here are just a few …
Merry Christmas Eve!
I may have totally failed to post that I got this T-shirt in gold a few weeks ago: Love it! I love to sew long sleeves into T-shirts for the layered look without the overheating. I happened to have a striped long-sleeved top in the two colors of Amelia’s hair in this illustration, so these sleeves have really worked well on this T-shirt. It’s a lovely combination.

In other news, everyone on the Internet seems to be so stoked for tomorrow. I have to be careful not to be. I don’t have a BBC America enabled location for the special, so I’ll have to wait for it to become available for download. That will probably be Boxing Day at the earliest.
Forbidden Planet have added two more T-shirts to their Doctor Costume T-Shirt Set. The only one missing now is 9th. That’s going to be a bit hard, I bet, given the color scheme.
I can’t recommend the 8th Doctor shirt just yet though. As you may notice, the coat is really green. This isn’t right, unless it’s to do with the Big Finish audio dramas or something. Course I misremembered it as brown. I’ve just gone through the gallery for the TV movie and it seems to be variously charcoal, black, and some kind of deep evergreen. Here’s the greenest image I found:
So until this product is tweaked up, I can’t recommend it. Same goes for the 3rd Doctor’s Costume T-Shirt. The color just seems off.
The others are splendid and I can’t wait to have one of each. See the rest of them here.
Look what just became available:
Affiliate = yes. Wish that meant I get a discount, but you can’t have everything. Happy to note that the design does not involve stripey controversial simulated tweed jacket. I really like this one.
Here are the other shirts in the series, below the jump.
Redbubble has the most comprehensive and probably funniest collection of Doctor Who T-shirts possible. I want most of them. Am not a Redbubble affiliate. I don’t know if they have affiliates. It’ll take me a whole weekend to look at all these shirts. I only looked at the first 150 so far.
This one’s not a Redbubble, but it is a must have. From Forbidden Planet, where I actually am an affiliate:
Okay off to get groceries and then weed some more screencaps so I can post them soon.
Wow, I haven’t come up for air for some time. Been downloading HD episodes like a fiend and gathering the samples for the experiments mentioned earlier. But hey, my T-shirt arrived today!
Update: It’s now available at RedBubble.
So, these HD episodes look fantastic! I cannot wait to get some of the blurrier episodes redone. For some of the (visually) darker episodes like The Almost People, there’s a tradeoff: there’s quite a lot of speckling in the dark areas, but I don’t think that’s as bad as the rampant blur in the earlier caps.
Many of these look like they’d improve in a resize. Sometimes taking down the size of an image packs the pixels a bit and makes them appear sharper, so if I capture really enormous and then resize to merely huge, a lot of speckle ought to come out. However, the tool I use for batch processing doesn’t include batch resize. I may have to just give in and buy an image editor. Paint Shop Pro used to be my big tool back in the day, but that day was so long ago it was version 7. I no longer have the install disc, and that version might not run on my netbook anyway.
