As henshin hero fans, we know the struggle is nigh to find the right gifts that express who we are and what our community is about. An S.H. Figuart for your pops may sometimes be met with a head scratch and awkward glance. Even more so we would love to adorn our walls with all sorts of pieces that express the love for the mechs, the grown ups in spandex standing as a bastion for justice around the world, and the epic kaiju battles they fought to maintain that order. Well, let’s spend a moment to talk about artists we see in our community giving us amazing wall art, keeping us warm with Rider scarves, and everything in between.
In all honesty and transparency, my wife is among the many who help make awesome tokusatsu merch over on Facebook under the name “Made By Midge” with all sorts of crocheted pieces of nerd awesome.
If you’re looking for something to spruce up your home, why not check out Greg Wright’s amazing prints? Available through his Society6 page, Greg offers a wide variety of prints, ranging from the king of kaiju to our favorite pocket monsters. He offers the prints by themselves or framed, so you’re sure to find something you will like in his shop!
What if you want to wear your favorite kaiju fighting Jaeger? Unicorn Empire Prints has you covered! Their Gipsy Danger shirt is bold and flashy, highlighting not only the Jaeger, but some of the infamous kaiju they took down.
Keep us updated with all of the store owners, artists and designers you know out there making awesome tokusatsu inspired crafts! Remember with the holidays dashing into our periphery, there are gifts for everyone in our genre. We’ll be sure to post with all of your suggestions.
