superheroblog“But now I’m free. There are no strings on me…”

Pinnochio lyrics have never been more terrifying! Over at DressDown, we’ve all just boarded the Avengers hype train!

Have you seen the new trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron? If not, click this link, and prepare to get excited. In May 2015, the ultimate Marvel team are back in action for the biggest movie yet. Nick Fury’s band of badass heroes are back, and taking on the ultimate killing machine; Ultron.

For over a decade we’ve been seeing more and more superheroes blockbusters on the big screen, and no matter how much destruction and despair Ultron brings next year, we’re pretty sure he won’t impact the future of the box-office.

The awesome infographic on your right (via Reddit), shows that we’ve got a minimum of 33 SUPERHERO MOVIES coming our way over the next 6 years.

Marvel studios alone will be producing 10 movies, which are expected to tie into the Avengers later down the line.

After the success for Man of Steel, it appears that DC Comics will be going head-to-head with Marvel, with a whopping 11 comic book movies being produced before the end of the decade.

DC’s first blockbuster team-up will see Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in the same movie in Dawn of Justice, with a Justice League superfilm pencilled in for 2017!

With Agents of Shield, and Gotham being a critical TV success, the future is looking bright for Superheroes.

Although we can’t provide super powers, we can provide super t-shirts. Check out our range of Marvel and DC inspired clothing, including Spiderman, XMEN, GOTG, and Avengers t shirts and hoodies.

The weekend has ended; and we’re not happy about it!

It’s grey and wet outside, the need for coffee has risen, and it took God-like powers to get out of bed. It can only be a Monday. The biggest question is, did you have an awesome weekend?If you didn’t, don’t worry too much, because these 5 people made up for it!

 

1. Doctor Who Kicked Ass

At DressDown, we are massive fans of Doctor Who, but Season 8 has been a bit hit and miss.

Episodes like ‘Listen’ have made our hair stand on end, and hide behind cushions in true Doctor Who fashion. Whereas stuff like ‘Kill the Moon’ has killed our vibe.

So this week we get to see Doctor Who being bad-ass on a train, in space, tackling a technologically advanced mummy that can kill you in 66 seconds. He even became friends with Frank Skinner. Top Stuff!

 

2. Nico Rosberg Kicked Ass

What a flight... - via Instagram

With only three races left to go before the end of the season, things have been heating up in Formula 1.

Have you ever driven over 200mph, poured champagne over your head, and shaken hands with Vladimir Putin? Despite not winning in Russia this weekend, Nico Rosberg did all this and more; coming in second place at the debut Grand Prix in Sochi.

He then went on to have one of the most epic-looking flights imaginable with some of his F1 rivals.

3. Andrea Faustini Kicked Ass

The X-Factor has kicked off in a big way this year, with some incredible performances.

As this weekends theme was Number One Hits, we got to hear some of the world’s most memorable tunes… and some performances we’d prefer to forget.

Blonde Electra were one of the latter, singing a song that was not a number one. Thankfully, they will never be seen again.

But one person blew our minds. Andrea Faustini gave us one of the greatest versions of Earth Song we’ve ever heard. Not only that, but the guy’s got the wildest choice of clothes. He could teach us a couple of things.

4. Some Guy on Reddit Kicked Ass

Imagine going to a hotel in the middle of nowhere. You’re not too bothered about leaving your room, so you order a bit of room service. There’s a Steak Special on the menu for $20, you order it and not expect too much.

But then you receive this…

Looking like it’s cut from a Minotaur, this ribeye steak caught the eye of a lot of people online. For around £12.50, we can understand why.

 

5. Rick Grimes Kicked Ass

The Walking Dead started back up this weekend (in America at least), and it was awesome. Deputy Rick Grimes is back to kicking some zombie ass in the post-apocalyptic world. We don’t want to spoil anything for you, so tune in tonight a 9pm on FOX!

Last night, the lord and lady of British baking named the successor to The Great British Bake Off championship title.

That’s right, ‘Fancy’ Nancy Birtwhistle bested her fellow bakers to become the 2014 winner, in our favourite season yet.

This year gave us some  Super Signatures, Tricky Technicals, and Spectacular Showstoppers. 3D biscuit scenes, triple-tiered pies, and delicious donuts were all on the menu in Season 5, giving the country an appetite for baking.

At DressDown, we’ve caught Bake Off fever in a big way, and were gripped since episode one. From the highly controversial Alaska/BinGate, to the playful smut of Mel and Sue, Series 5 has had us glued to our telly. In fact, we’ve enjoyed it that much that we’ve created an entire range of baking inspired clothing, for those who don’t want a soggy bottom in the kitchen.

Whether you’re making beautiful battenburgs, or burnt butterfly buns, we’ve got a range of baking t shirts and hoodies for all aspiring Star Bakers. To make our products a little sweeter, we’re offering 15% discount across our entire range of clothing when you use code BAKEOFF14.
