September’s Welovefine Cosplayer of the Month is here and this time you get two great cosplays in one this month!
Nadine makes a spectacular Rogue and she even has a Remy LeBeau by her side! Her boyfriend Berg is dressed as Gambit and together they make a great pair, Nadine made both costumes herself!
Check out our own welovefine X-Men tribute with our Kawaii Rogue and Gambit shirt! Available in both mens and womens it is full of cuteness!
It’s time for August’s Welovefine’s Cosplayer of the Month! Every month we’ll feature a cosplayer paired with one of our awesome t-shirt designs. They will also be showcased over at Comics Alliance: Best Cosplay Ever!
Our August Cosplayer of the Month is Jamie Carr! Jamie went all out in her homage to Bryan Lee O’Malley’s character. Not only did she make a handmade jacket, but also the shorts and even the purse! Her love of Scott Pilgrim was in the details, she even hand embroidered the Smashing Pumpkins logo that Scott wears, onto the back pocket of the shorts!
Jamie’s Ramona Flowers cosplay was the very first costume she ever made for a Con. Outstanding!
Right now you can get 15% off our Fashion Ramona shirt. A great addition to the wardrobe of every Scott Pilgrim fan!
So a while back, with some assistance from our good pal Ryan Penagos at Marvel.com, we sent some of our Avengers/Loki tees to the man himself, Tom Hiddleston, who had commented on them on Twitter. Imagine our surprise yesterday when, in a really cool tweet to all his followers, this photo turned up:
Whoa… we are the wardrobe choice for an official message to Loki’s Army? RAD! (And glad you dig the tees, Tom!)

Here’s the latest interview with some of the talented artists who won the major prizes in our Marvel/Avengers design contest! This time it’s Jerry Bennett, whose “Avengers Inked” took home the Judges’ Prize given by Laura Hudson of Comics Alliance!
Here are some insights to Jerry’s style and how to design for t-shirts:
Hi Jerry! Tell our WeLoveFine.com community a little about yourself – where are you from, how long have you been a designer, etc.
I’ve lived my entire life in the Oklahoma City area. I’ve been an artist since two, but only these last few years have I been really digging the tee design business! I actually consider myself a comic book artist at heart, and just recently had an awesome interview with Marvel Comics and currently showing them more comic art in the hopes of drawing for Marvel!
It’s now time for all you Marvel-ous fans out there to rate your favorite designs in our “Avengers” tee design contest! And guess what – there’s some swag in it for you, too!
You already know that our artists and designers are up for prizes, but did you know that simply by rating your favorite designs YOU could win, too? It’s true! Here’s how it works:
1. Register with welovefine.com in order to rate your favorite tees.
2. Rate ALL of the tees entered in the contest (Don’t just rate the ones you like best; give every design a 1 through 5, 5 being best.)
3. When the ratings period ends on March 19th, along with designating our winners, we will draw THREE individuals who registered ratings on every entry, and they’ll win a tee of their choice from the winning designs!
Register NOW and start rating – good luck!

Wow! We are taken aback and definitely pleased by the reception we’ve received in the past week for our 80′s Fashion Art / X-Men tees, which depict four of the most popular ladies from Marvel’s long-running title – Rogue, Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde), Phoenix (Jean Grey) and Storm – in a style inspired by legendary fashion-artist Patrick Nagel. The colors, being that they are comics characters, are a bit brighter but the modern Art Deco-influenced style is unmistakable, and we’re stoked that so many of you love the nostalgic look of these designs like we do!
Shop our ’80′s Fashion Art/X-Men’ section HERE!
So far, we’ve had great notices from the likes of Collider, io9, UGO, Fashionably Geek, Comics Alliance and of course, our friends at Marvel.com. Thanks to all for helping us share these tees with your audiences! And thanks to all of you who have shared, retweeted, and otherwise helped spread the word on the web. We are keeping abreast of the type of stuff you like and coming up with new spins all the time – for example, our Kraftwerk-inspired X-Men tee which went live earlier this week and has also picked up some great notices:
Buy ‘X-Men Werk’ HERE.
So, what other kinds of Marvel designs – nostalgic or otherwise – do you want us to work on? Or what about our other characters, such as the Muppets or Adventure Time? Let us know in the comments below! Feedback is our favorite!
At long last, we can reveal the final design by Megan Lara in our ladies of X-Men art nouveau series! Well done ALL of you (and you were an elite and dedicated bunch!) who guessed KITTY PRYDE (aka Shadowcat) as our third amazing mutant femme in the series! Here she is, immortalized in Mucha-esque style along with her trusty pal Lockheed:
You can buy ‘Shadowcat Nouveau’ right HERE!
Of course, some of you who guessed Kitty correctly as Megan’s third design won’t have to buy her if you don’t want to, because you’re WINNERS! Congratulations to…

You all win ONE shirt of your choice! (Phoenix Nouveau, Mystique Nouveau OR Shadowcat Nouveau)
