Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Christine Schott’s Mass Effect 3 hoodies, based on the game’s character designs, are about to go from DeviantArt concept drawings to official BioWare merchandise.

Schott writes:

Chances are my hoodies are nowhere near the final product, after all I’m no true designer and haven’t got the slightest idea what looks good on clothing and what doesnt. I just conceptualized the idea. they will be redesigning the hoodies, and will sell a few as a trial run, and if it goes well more hoodies will be added I’m sure.

Great idea! I just hope the hipster don’t get wind of it.
