East Coast Throwdown 2014 May 09 2014
The time has finally come, and ECT is upon us. We are digging up the dirt, and will be there with all new designs for everyone. ECT will be hosting your favorite fighting games including a sperate location test with the most recent build of Ultra Street Fighter 4. Needless to say the excitement will be palpable. For more information please visit their site: ecthrowdown.com
Below is Notifuro's first online commercial, created for ECT 2014
Our friends over at twitch.tv/teamsp00ky and twitch.tv/deadly_bison will headline the gaming event with several live feeds.
To show our support for the event, we will be dropping an exclusive design just for ECT 2014 viewers. The design will be limited to online purchases only along with only 100 tee's being produced. A true piece of collectible clothing at its finest.
This year the a few members of the Notifuro team will be attending Otakon in Baltimore this year. Usually we participate behind our booths but this year we are going to have fun. No booths only chaos and pandemonium. We will be walking the long halls of the Baltimore convention center and dancing at the rave. Otakon is the largest anime convention in the United States and this year they introduced a 'max person' limit. This is the first time they are maxing the amount of people attending which means this will most likely be the largest event yet.
On top of Otakon being simply amazing and fun, the Notifuro team has a special surprise to the otaku/geek community. We will be bringing Anjii Yuki aka "GG Anjii" via Twitch. She is a cosplayer, geek, nerd & avid League of Legends player who streams almost everyday on Twitch. Be sure to follow both her facebook and twitter for more updates on Anjii.
With the release of Marvel Dice Masters and it's huge popularity, we might end up at the gaming center of the convention to play with our fans. At the moment Anjii's cosplay schedule is to be determined. If any photographers wish to schedule time with Anjii please us our contact us page.
We will be creating special Otakon only clothing where you can only purchase the items from us. These items will be super unique and rare as you will first need to find us. Then know the secret handshake... Just kidding, you will just need to find us and you can then order the gear with both a credit card or cash. Every order that weekend will receive a photo of Anjii as well.
The event is three months away so don't forget to subscribe to our blog and Twitter for updates.
In our last stop before East Coast Throwdown, Notifuro got together with Khaos Gaming to support their next fighting game event Northwest Majors VI #NWM6. We will be providing prizes along with discounts all weekend, so keep be sure to keep up on both Twitch and Twitter.
For all of our @BossLogic fans, to commemorate Mr. Logic on getting 40K (which clearly is over 9000) likes on Facebook. We have brought back a modified version of his limited edition LGX hoodie, the "classic version".
This is going to be a star studded event for the #FGC with a lot of international and regional players. Our personal favorites are 'EG' PR Balrog, 'EG' Justin Wong, Mike Ross and the 2013 Shadowloo Showdown Champion Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi.

Amanda LaPalme Teams with Notifuro April 04 2014
Amanda LaPalme who use to go by the name 'Dragon Duelist Girl' has been a long time competitive YuGiOh trading card game player. Ever since the age of 16, she has traveled to several YuGiOh championship events and on a few occasions placing in the top 10. What attracted Notifuro to Amanda was her natural ability to free hand draw and paint. Amanda has been creating custom play-mats and cards for about two years now. One of our favorites is the one of Freeza from DragonBall Z. Amanda's heart and dedication has made the wings on her back grow, allowing her to soar real high and gain popularity. In 2013 she started to live stream various games on Twitch TV, most noticeably League of Legends. Amanda then custom designed a cosplay outfit of Jinx from League of Legends, where she appeared at Youmacon. A video of her voice acting as Jinx can be seen below.
Below is an interview conducted between Amanda and 4gamer:
Q: What was your first opinion about Notifuro when they reached out to you? As you most likely are contacted by hundreds of people everyday to do things.
A: Well, as you deduced. I honestly wasn't sure what to think since everything looked fairly new; I've been previously contacted by a number of people launching similar projects and they all were flops or never followed through. After a few months of observing Corey's dedication to Notifuro, my cynicism evaporated.
Q: How will you be contributing to Notifuro?
A: In whatever way I can be helpful. I'm an artist and cosplay enthusiast, and we already have a few ideas in the works. By the end of this year, I hope to have contributed some shirt designs and travel to events with Notifuro and cosplay at their booth!
Q: Are you excited to see your artwork come to life on articles of clothing?
A: Of course! I think that's something most artists unanimously wish to see for their work- others enjoying it, even enough to wear it! I think that's a great honor and hope my designs will be good enough.
Q: Can you give your fans some hints to what your first design might be?
A: It's themed towards the game community I'm actively involved in. :)
Q: Lastly, will we see any Pokémon ball bra's in the future?
A: Hah. Sure, if Notifuro makes a Women's department.
The Notifuro team supports Amanda 110% in anything she does.
We are really excited to have her on board and can not wait to see her artwork being printed onto our clothing. Amanda will be joining us at certain conventions so stay tuned for more information if you wish to meet her in person. If you can not wait to see her, be sure to check out her Facebook fan page where she posts her artwork and cosplay photos regularly. https://www.facebook.com/amandalepanda

Notifuro Joe vs PIE Chin, first to 10 Grudge Match. October 22 2013
Here is the full set, in what could be considered one of the hypest matches of 2013 in American Super Street Fighter 4. All this gaining steam, heading into N.E.C later this year in December. This match had an added weight of a gentlemanly wager of 200$ per person. It was confirmed that over 1000$ in cash was floating around as spectators invested on their man. So here without further delay, thanks to Arturo "NYCFurby" from over at Team Spooky who streamed the whole PIE event.
I won't ruin the outcome, but it was an excellent match on both players part. Caution NSFW language ;-)
Notifuro would like to welcome LI Joe to the team. Although a long time friend, Joe has recently made waves as a co-organizer of some of the biggest events in the fighting game community (FGC). Now after a long hiatus, he will be leading the charge as Notifuro Clothing's first honored ambassador.
What is most important is making sure we can help Joe in any way possible. We hope to bring him to more events than ever, and support him in any way he needs. He is also being blessed with his very own line of limited edition tee's which reflect Joe's personality. The Notifuro team sat down with Joe to discuss what he envisions himself wearing, rather than being forced to wear something he truly did not believe in.
Check back for more information on where Joe will be next. Do not forget to register to our newsletter for up to date information on when there are clothing releases for the LI Joe series.
