(You don’t have to).
Minecraft is the kind of phenomena you don’t really understand until you have the chance to play it yourself. Some of us just aren’t builders. Then again, those of us who aren’t builders, still manage to find joy in Lego. They had to have done studies on it that fidget spinners have mirrored in recent times: how can we make a game that kids and adults both see when they close their eyes?
Tetris did it back in the day, it was time there was a new obsession. And so Minecraft was born, and the world rejoiced henceforth as there was a new game to obsess over.
Through its invention came some awesome Minecraft clothing. All that’s left to do now is build your own wardrobe…
1. Ever Wonder What’s Inside a Creeper?
This hoodie will show you exactly what makes up a creeper’s anatomy. Creepers are as obnoxious and numerous as pigeons are in the real world, but way more dangerous to you when you’re just trying to live and build your life in peace. Did somebody hurt them when they were younger? Good thing is, with this, you can see how they work from the inside and, by extension, figure out how to beat them slowly by getting to the root of the problem. Or, you know, just put it on and look badass.
2. You Can Also Get Minecraft Clothing that Glows in the Dark!
Speaking of Creepers, they do star sort of front and center on this t-shirt as well, but the good part about that is you’re always in front of them and because it’s frozen in motion, you don’t have to have the panic of actually running away like you do in the game. It’s a great Minecraft t-shirt to have for all Minecraft fans and the glow in the dark part of it is gonna be really handy when you’re reaching for your shirt in the dark after a hard night of playing.
3. Be Careful You’re Not Up All Night
There are no concerts in the Minecraft world so you’ve got no excuse. Still, it happens from time to time, that you get so involved in building that the day passes by and before you know it, the night is crawling in too quickly than you know what to do with. So what can you do then? You’ve got the building skills to build yourself a safe haven away from the Creepers, to make sure you wake up the next day — and more importantly, your building stays — in one piece.
4. This Minecraft Creeper Hoodie is Two Parts Awesome, One Part Terrifying
It’s our favorite piece of Minecraft clothing we’ve found so far. This Creeper hoodie will either excite or terrify your friends, all depending on whether or not you’ve got the hood up or not. The sizing is perfect for kids or adults, meaning if you get a small for your kid and then a medium or large for yourself, you can both walk around together with the hoods zipped up for fun. (You can see out of them! Don’t worry. I’d never trick you).
5. Minecraft vs Super Mario, Who’s Gonna Win?
This is a celebrity death match I didn’t think I’d live to see. Granted, I didn’t know I would live to see a world in which there’d be a pixelated character with a pickaxe that also liked boxes with question marks on them. I can’t even decide which of them is going to actually stake their claim either because yeah, Mario is right, he did see it first, but… Minecraft guy is so much taller. He could reach it first without even having to try. Genuinely, at this point, I think the victor is whoever gets it first. Sorry, Mario.
6. Don’t Let the Fact You’re Not a Creeper Ruin Your Fun
There’s an Ocelot hoodie that’s nearly exactly the same as the creeper one. Expand your Minecraft clothing collection the right way, by staying on the light side of the Force. You might not be able to change the color of the hoodie the way you would if you were to tame an Ocelot in the game, but its distinctive yellow color and pretty damn adorable ears will help you stand out amongst your peers. I will say though, it’s not my fault if they decide they’re going to hold a raw fish in your direction. Old habits die hard.
7.This Alex Girl-Fit Tee is Cute As Frick
Alex is one of the main characters in the game, and so it’s only right she get a few t-shirts and hoodies dedicated to her. Just because she’s (relatively) human does not mean she’s any less cool than a creeper or an ocelot; even a chicken. Being human is awesome (we can attest to that, right?) and being the protagonist means, no matter what, she’s going to come out on top at the end. You know, even if that requires dying a few times in the process. It’s just what happens. It’s part of the game.
8. The Minecraft Snap Back Creeper Hat is an Essential Accessory
Whenever snapbacks came back was a good day. Regular caps are all right and all, but they don’t have the room a trucker hat does to pay tribute to your favorite fandom. Anybody who’s anybody has a snapback and you never know. Wearing this might even disguise you from the creepers by turning you into one of them. They’re annoying and can mess up everything, but they’re not very bright. Why would they go after one of their own when there’s a tasty Alex floating around?
9. Your Goth Friends Will DIE For this Enderman Hoodie
Enderman is Slenderman’s mine-dwelling cousin. (I don’t know if the name gave that away at all). He makes the Creepers look like annoying ants in comparison, scuttling around bothering you but not actually doing too much to destroy your life. He makes you long for them and yet, your Minecraft clothing collection kind of deserves his hoodie because of how subtle it is. Which makes sense! For a terrifying, netherworld dwelling beast, he’s pretty subtle compared with the Babadook. Some say you even need a Minecraft light wall torch just to catch a glimpse.
10. Free Hugs Not Drugs! Or Bugs…
Don’t you want a hug from a creeper? Not even one that’s so happy to see you? Look at that expectant face! Look at the hope and desire in it, the need, the want. Look at how much everything in his life depends on the moment he gets hugged by one of his adversaries that show him it’s cool if he’s different, that he’s still a Cool Guy. …and do all of that before he bites your head off and/or smashes your newly constructed fortress. But he’s sooo cuuuuute!
11. It’s Beanie a Good Run…
Warm your head for the winter months with a Minecraft wolf that has your best interests at heart for a change. These days, you can’t go wrong with a beanie or hat that has ears, the same way you can’t go wrong with a hoodie or onesie that has them. This tame wolf will be your friend at the best and worst of times. The only time you might want to avoid going out with him is in the summer, but even that depends on where you live, and can you really say no to wearing this face? I thought not. You can try, but no.
12. You Can Get Minecraft Clothing That’s Smart As Well
Fitting for all your more formal gatherings, this fleece jacket is understated as far as geekwear goes, but in a way that makes it look great even to people who don’t play Minecraft. (What’s wrong with them??) You could wear it to work, to school, to build your next empire. There’s no limit to the heights you can reach when you’re dressed to the nines and feeling great. If you gave Alex one of these, she might give up mining and crafting. See what I did there?
13. Head to Battle in your Minecraft T-Shirt
This shirt is so bright, you’ve got no chance of being a chameleon in a world full of people. Why would you want to be a chameleon though, when you could be a butterfly? Or a unicorn? Why blend in when you can stand out? This t-shirt is pulling out all of the stops in displaying exactly what’s going to happen to you when you wear it. (With less death). The bad guys are only going after you because you’re in it and they wanna invite you around for tea just like the Wampaa did with Luke, honest.
14. Creeper’s Anatomy, Coming to ABC this Fall
The Creeper — Creepus Explodus in Latin — is a strange creature that will make its mark on your Minecraft story, whatever your playstyle is. You’ll be roaming the lands or building your house, just hanging with some friends as they show off how much better their land is than yours when, all of a sudden, the creepers will submerge from the caves you took the material from and, I mean, at least you’re at your friends house and not your own, right? This is why I never have anyone over. I call it an Existential Playstyle when I play on my DIY computer kit. Never go on the server, never get crept.
15. Use This Shirt as a Legend Chart!
New and seasoned players can benefit from this. Think about it, there aren’t many good guys, so you could actually just vaguely gesture towards the mobs if somebody asked you who it was you have to look out for. It’s not like you didn’t warn them. If you’re a Minecraft fan, this is the kind of t-shirt that’s probably going to be in your collection already. If not? Now’s the time! Or you could just get me one instead. I’m not going to pressure you with a pickaxe and my pet creeper or anything, but…
16. Halloween isn’t Prepared for your Monster Morphsuit
Just in case the creeper hoodie didn’t frighten your mother/brother/cousin enough, we’ve got a real treat for you in the form of an all body “this is gonna be hard to pee but is worth it” creeper suit. It doesn’t have to be Halloween either if you’d like it to roam around the house or streets in, there’s nothing stopping you except for the easily terrified, and they’re going to be so strapped for something to say you’ll be able to slink right by. Preferably to the Bee Gees’ Stayin’ Alive.
