INSERT COIN CLOTHING ENDS THE JOURNEY FOR GEEK
BY TARA BABCOCK
ago, in a barren world of attire mediocrity, lived a young gamer girl named
Tara. This bright, hopeful lass spent night and day playing the exciting
rollercoasters referred to today as video games. These games were colorful,
enticing, vibrant, vast, and above all, exciting. In fact, all of Tara's
companions, surroundings, and her entire reality, were positively chromatic!
Now, this world wasn't perfect-- no, it was far from it. This inconsistency was
one of the highest caliber, for looking at any of these gaming world natives, or
nerds and geeks as they are most commonly referred to, you would immediately
detect the flaw. Their t-shirts and hoodies, even when not tattered nor torn,
were bland and unoriginal. The nerds simply could not express themselves through
their clothing items! Tara, being a courageous and self-sacrificing gamer,
volunteered to scour the worlds beyond looking for a rectification for her
world's blunder... even if it meant she would go completely without gaming
throughout her journey!
tumultuous and ungratifying journey, the young nerd maiden stumbled through the
very last location on her map, the United Kingdom. Feeling disheartened and
ready to give up, she sees a bright yellow, black, and white logo in a building
through the stereotypically thick fog. "Insert Coin Clothing", it read. Upon
entering the building, to her delight, was the most beautiful gamer gear, more
enamoring than she could have fathomed! Cervantes, Umbrella Corporation...
Monteriggioni! Surely Sonic the Hedgehog himself had forged the instrument that
created the Eggman Industries tee!
supremely pleased with her discovery, Tara packed up hundreds of articles of
Insert Coin clothing for her people, and started her journey home. The nerds and
geeks of Tara's world were overjoyed! So joyous were the festivities of her
return that they deemed that very day a world-wide holiday, Insert Coin day!
troubles over for this civilization of gamers? How, oh how could they
continuously procure such quality clothing!? All was okay, though, for they
The unboxing was one of my favorite parts! I went a little crazy with all the
the absolute best from their games, and to receive the most out of anything they
play. They strive for near-perfection, and they want to know developers are hard
at work listening to the fans and players. How could you expect that, when it
comes to our clothing as well, we would want anything less, as well? Take it
from a life-long gamer, a model, and shopaholic alike, Insert Coin clothing will
satisfy both the desire for quality gaming merchandise, and high-end attire!
There are many
clothing companies and shopping outlets around the world that offer nerd couture
to its patrons nowadays, so what exactly makes Insert Coin's clothing different?
Firstly, Insert Coin prints on very durable, vibrant fabric. You can see the
quality, effort, and love they put into their products at very first glance.
Each piece arrived to me carefully folded and placed into cute, logo-bearing
individual packaging. Even the tags are adorably fastened to the shirt, and
adorn their stamp of nerdery. The designs are fade-resistant and eye catching.
It is safe to say that Insert Coin presents a standard of quality not often
seen, and at such a bargain!
I feel like a true Ezio in this! Hands-down the coolest hoodie I have ever
slipped on! Buy it
It's not just
the quality of the design and product that makes Insert Coin clothing stand out
from the pack; it's their awesome way of thinking that got my attention as well!
Insert coin is not trying to make a buck off of the average poser with shirts
that blatantly state that you are a gamer. They strive to create shirts
successfully referencing to games without the outright statement, "Yes, I am a
nerd, look at me!" For instance, anyone who actually completed Mass
Effect 2 will get the reference to the Afterlife Gentleman's Club! Wearing ICC's
clothing (and no, I'm not referring to gear from a past WoW expansion!) not only
shows your true nerd credibility, it also allows you to be enigmatic while still
drawing in true fellow geeks! "Our products help you represent the games
you love with cool, subtle references..." they state outright on their official
site. How epic is that!?
Insert Coin clothing doesn't stop with their merchandise, either! Hardcore
gamers know best that gaming is not just something to do; it is a lifestyle, and
one revolving around a strong community. Insert Coin nurses this as a company.
Not only is the staff amazingly helpful, swift, and kind, they also sponsor a
ton of giveaways, contests, and share gamer news on their social networks. Fans
can check out their
Facebook and Twitter
pages for epic customer photos, tons of comments and topics to discuss,
and never ending updates about future designs to get excited about! Following
them has been a pleasure, and a nice pastime entertainment. They love their fan
base nearly as much as I do mine, often replying to responses and retweeting
"The hottest girls from across the galaxy!" Aww yeah! Check it out
To sum my
review article up, I thought I would steal a bit of badassery from the company
that has already said it best: Insert Coin themselves, and follow with some more
of the epic imagery I was able to capture while wearing their brand, just to
sweeten the pot! "We design with passion - and with an eye on the latest fashion
trends. Not only do we spend time on the designs themselves, but we make
everything from scratch - every tee and every hoodie - enabling us to create
sleeker, cooler and wholly unique products. Nothing is 'off the peg'. Nothing is
relabelled. No corners are cut. When you order an official Insert Coin product
you're not just getting another tee or hoodie, you're getting our commitment to
innovation and quality too." I'm sold, and I am pretty sure the rest of you will
be shortly, if you are not already! Let Insert Coin clothing be your choice for
gamer, nerd, and geek chic gear... internationally!
Ah, the Umbrella Corporation, the single most terrifying reference in all of
gaming. Retro Resident Evil used to give me nightmares! Purchase

IN TARA LAND...
As always, I
have been very, very busy, with my many "works". I quote this word because, to
me, working as a model and a gamer, writer, and retoucher is really a blessing!
Of course I work my butt off, but I am fortunate enough to be doing something I
love! I am now currently working with NOS Energy Drinks (a Coca-Cola brand) in
my area to promote eSports events and other gaming-related projects. I am also
up for the Maxim Gamer Girl 2012 contest! If you'd like to vote for me, I'd love
the support! The link is here!
I am still trying to get my stream up and running, and I look forward to
streaming for you all my random gameplay with my webcam and commentary! Are you
As for the
question, this article’s is quite the interesting one! "I want to ask Tara... If
you were to ever create a video game what would it be, what's it about, what
genre, and for what console." Yay! Awesome question! I would want to create
something completely unique! I think I would want an action-RPG with a tiny girl
as the protagonist. She would be fighting these amazing God of War-esque
monsters and, of course, she would be scantily clad! I would want a deep,
involving storyline and top-of-the-line graphics, as well as a user-friendly,
yet challenging gameplay mechanic. I think my platform of choice would be the
PlayStation 4, I don't think it would release in time to make use of the PS3,
and I want pioneering developers on the job! I am thinking Ubisoft's ingenuity
with Atlas's cuteness, and RPG elements! Also, if you want to pretend to be a
game developer, like I just had the chance to, try out the amazing phone app,
Game Dev Story! It’s on both the Android and iPhone, and it’s awesome!
