Wow, you squeezed way more creativity out of this idea than I would have thought possible. The O and Q thing is hilarious, as is the Y. 1up.

I'd like to point out that each letter's weapon of choice begins w/ its letter, but I can't figure out z and x

i have no clue what to write here anymore....

Wow this came out great. Matching the weapons to the letters was a good idea. GMV

Reminds me of...

Ron Burgundy: (on the fight between local anchormen) Boy, that escalated quickly... I mean, that really got out of hand fast!
Champ Kind: It jumped up a notch!
Ron Burgundy: It did, didn't it?
Brick Tamland: Yeah, I stabbed a man in the heart!
Ron Burgundy: I saw that! Brick killed a guy! Did you throw a trident?
Brick Tamland: Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident!
Ron Burgundy: Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should probably find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.


*giggles*, sweet shirt.

Good catch there, thanks! That's why I went with the Trident for T. Well, that and Little Mermaid, but don't tell anyone.

A thoughtful and sharp (no pun intended) design! I need to get more familiar with weapons apparently...

Z is zweihander, X... X-calibur?

Wow, correct on Z but not on X. Good guess though!

I can't figure out the X either....but I love how the X is confused by the "in cognitgo" O!!! Love it!

X is a xiphos.

Like others have said, this is really creative! I love it.

Yea! Someone noticed! That's basically it. An "Energy Blast/Wave/Attack" from whatever game or anime you choose. I'm partial to the Kamehameha Wave myself.

If this wins, I will get it for under my uniform for my self defense class. May even get on for the head instructor and senior instructor. I know the guys will love it. The other ladies will laugh.

Wow... The fact that each of the letters is holding a weapon starting with that letter just makes this shirt. It's got my vote

What weapons would you have used for O, Q, and Y ?

Q could be Quarterstaff. I put that in my design this week. It doesn't fit with my overall theme though.

Q would have been a Quarterstaff, so kudos to eHalcyon. Then I couldn't think of/find anything for O so I opted to just have the O be disguised as Q, I thought it was amusing.

I never even considered a weapon for Y. I wanted Y neutral due to it being sometimes considered a vowel. I did want Y to be purple though, but I couldn't due to the 6 color limit.

What is the V weapon?

A weapon for Y could have been a yo-yo, which was originally designed as a weapon. I like the design, simple concept... great creativity.

I guess "I" would be the most difficult to figure out, so I'll give you a hint. "Abe Reles"

this actually reminds me of a game on adultswim.com called "viva caligula" where there's a weapon for each letter of the alphabet... for x is 'xyston' and z is 'zampogna'
you can look them up on wikipedia, though z is more of a musical instrument than weapon...

Is the "X" X-Calibur? (As in King Arthur's sword?)
