Apologies guys, for how long this has taken for me to upload! I was ill for a while after receiving the stuff, and then kept forgetting to take photos (and you can hardly review clothing without photos of the actual items!)
So here is my Insert Coin Clothing review!
There are a couple more things left to be photographed, the Fisher shirt and the Ryu dressing gown, so pics for those will go up within the next few hours (need to wait on Allan coming home from work to model the shirt and the dressing gown for me). The other kids t-shirt will have to wait unfortunately, as I've left it at my parents' house, so pics of that will be added as soon as I get it back :)
The quality of all of the pieces I've received so far has been fantastic. Here is a little run down of the products and a little insight into them all :)
The t-shirts are lovely and bright (in both the kids, and adult ranges - I have three t-shirts, I'll get photos of those up on here at some point soon, one of them matches the Dead Space one AJ is wearing!) and really good material.
|AJ gives Insert Coin Clothing a double thumbs up!|

The Fisher shirt, which is the only shirt we've ever had from IC, is beautiful. The material is very high quality, and it looks amazing on. The colour bled something awful when it was first washed, and still does slightly now (I tend to handwash it due to this) but it doesn't affect the colour in the shirt itself at all. I imagine if I ran it through the machine, then the colour-run would stop, but I don't really have a lot of dark things to put it in with haha.

The Ryu dressing gown is lovely and cosy, very thick and just, uhh! Honestly, it's brilliant for just curling up in when your cold, or when you're just out of a bath :)

LEGGINGS. What can I say about the leggings? I love them. Reading my blog, you'll know that I'm a big fan of leggings. I own leggings from both IC, and Black Milk Clothing. The Insert Coin ones are fantastic quality, lovely and bright, and finally give my bottom half that much needed gaming injection. The material is slightly thinner than Black Milk's leggings, but it's not a big problem. If they were a bit thicker, to match up with the thickness of BM ones, that would be perfect, as the IC ones do tend to go a little sheer on the butt at times (but that might be because my ass is massive lol) but they are honestly amazing. Got my eyes on a few more pairs right now!
Here are my beautiful "Power Up" leggings, obviously based on Pac-Man :)

But where's Pac-Man?
THERE HE IS!

|Different angle to show how the legs line up to create the AC logo (which I actually have tattooed on my back!)|
|Sonic the Hedgehog "Sonic Speed" leggings, by IC - paired with an old Primark T-shirt from the men's section :)|
|There's the blue blur there!|
The Dreamcast bag is one of two bags that Insert Coin do, and the only one I have so far. It is amazing. A brilliant size for fitting in everything I need during the day, and it gets SO MANY compliments. We attended a Comic Mart event last week and the amount of people that were like "omg, I love your bag!" was unreal. I pointed them all in the direction of Insert Coin Clothing, naturally.

Preorders for the latest pieces from ICC are LittleBigPlanet, which are up on the site now, and the rest of their Fable Anniversary range will go live very soon. I am majorly lusting after the Sackboy leggings, the Albion map leggings and the Jack of Blades jacket, but sadly I have no money to spare right now, boo! So if anyone wants to send those my way, I'll love you forever :P
I believe the next line to be going up for pre order after the second batch of Fable stuff will be inFAMOUS: Second Son, which myself and Allan are really looking forward to - he really wants the jacket and hat as they look amazing. Hoping we get a PS4 soon so we can actually play the game too, as it is super high on our list of things to get, but sadly, money issues mean we can't right now.
Do you have any pieces from Insert Coin Clothing? Do any of the new things take your fancy?
