I make hockey jerseys...take a look!

And possibly other stuff too...have to justify buying a sewing machine!
**NOTE**  I CANNOT sell these due to legal concerns.  However, I'll be updating this section to include instructions and links as to how to make your own!
Superman Front
Superman Front

This was my second attempt at a custom jersey (my first, not pictured here, had a work theme). So it's not based on an actual NHL team jersey, instead being ordered from a company that used generic designs.

The name for the jersey was easy...but selecting the number? Well, my methodology is to typically use the number of the character's first appearance, but I didn't think Superman would ever label himself as number 1. Instead, I opted to go with a number that would look like the yellow S found on his cape. While I opted to go with 5, looking back, I think 8 might have been better, as it'd match with one of DC's kryptonian glyphs.

This was the first comic/character themed jersey I made, and thus does reflect some of my own 'growing pains' in the process of developing these things.  The base jersey is a generic red, white and blue ordered from a sportswear wholesaler.

Green Lantern

Using the same methods I used with Superman, having a local baseball jersey shop do the letters and numbers on the back and getting the base jersey from the same wholesaler, for some odd reason, GL here seems to be a favorite of those that see the jerseys...and for the life of me, I cannot understand why, as he's definitely top of my list for a redo!

Still using basic jerseys from the same wholesaler I used for Superman and lettering from a local baseball jersey shop (because in Tucson, where I made this, if you say "hockey" the response is usually "Que?" Frustrating.

As you can see...the numbers are a little too small and set way to high up on the jersey. Again, baseball jersey shop doing the honors...so...you know. Like Superman before him, GL here is on my list to redo.

And then I discovered icejerseys.com! Here I was able to order blank versions of NHL team jerseys and have them do the lettering and numbers for me so they looked like actual hockey jerseys! Not a baseball jersey shop's approximation thereof. So, here we have a Chicago Blackhawks alternate jersey as the base, with Autobot patches applied. Obviously, as commander of the Autobots, he's clearly got the captain's C.

Since you can't put OPTIMUS PRIME on the back of a jersey...and just having read PRIME would pass up on identifying who it was specifically, I decided to go with the numeric pun.

Finally I sought professional help.  No, no...not THAT kind!  I discovered www.icejerseys.com and their help proved to be invaluable, producing my first professional looking hockey jersey!

 

This has a base of a Chicago Blackhawks third (or alternate) jersey with Autobot patches applied.

Megatron Front
Megatron Front

The base jersey here I got from a post on a custom jersey message board...and just thought it was too good to mess with. So yeah, I copied. This is an Anaheim Ducks alternate jersey as the base

I chose the number 16 from Japan's numbering system for Transformers releases. Before the brand really took off, each toy had a number, with Megatron being #16. Once the toys became the hit that they did and the line continued to deepen, the factions were split up, with Autobots (or Cybertrons over there) designated by C-xx while Decepticons (or Destrons) were designated with D-xx.

With Optimus...one MUST have a Megatron, and so I do!

 

The base for this one is an Anaheim Ducks third (or alternate) jersey.  I have to admit, this one isn't my idea.  I found someone had made one very much like this on a custom hockey jersey message board, and, well, I wasn't going to mess with what I felt was a perfect design.

Batman Front

Even though I suffer from Bat-fatigue, well, apparently my hockey jersey inspiration does not. Here we have the Bat, using a Buffalo Sabres jersey that was only used for one season (2001 maybe?)

Again, the name choice was obvious. As for the number, well, Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27...easy enough!

Next up we have Batman...made from a one-off Buffalo Sabres jersey from...2001 maybe?  I can't remember.  But it kept most of the Bat's traditional colors and, in spite of my Bat-fatigue, well...it works.

This was a gift to my cousin. The old Gretzky-era LA Kings jersey was a perfect fit!

Well, the Punisher (Frank Castle) first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man 129...so that wasn't going to work. But given Frank's fondness for the firearms, well, only one number would do...

Soon to be part of my own collection, this Gretzky-era LA Kings jersey proved to be a perfect backdrop for Frank Castle's signature skull.
