The X-Files is a series that no one can quite get over — not even Fox, considering the network is bringing it back with new episodes early next year. Its passionate fans love creating cool, creative, and often handmade merchandise to share with others. To help you get a head start on the X-Files celebration, here are some of the best merch items you can buy right now, from rings to pillows to tote bags.
If something exists in pop culture, there is either a Black Flag parody or a Descendents parody of it (if not both), and this one is just great.
From the same Etsy store — which has so many cool pop culture goodies — comes this X-Files activity book. (I own it and love it.)
Sure, you can make one yourself, but why destroy your fingers pushing in all those studs?
I mean, Santa Claus is basically an alien, right?
Admission: This crop top is what inspired this whole post, because once I saw it I went down a rabbit hole of all the X-Files merch that I desperately want.
These are labeled on Etsy as “best friends” rings, but I think they also work well as wedding rings. The couple that watches X-Files together stays together.
If you’re not ready for commitment rings, this bracelet is a nice way to ease into your X-Files-obsessed romance.
There are so many pillows to choose from, but I’m a big fan of this design.
For your next formal geeky event.
Mash-ups can either knock it out of the park or fall completely flat; this one falls into the former category.
For all the queer Scully fans out there; I have this design on a shirt, and it’s one of my favorite possessions.
To psych yourself up for getting the permanent ink.
You can’t worship Scully without the proper candle.
And you can’t have a Scully candle without a Mulder one.
These custom, hand-painted sneakers are made to order, and can even include more personalized touches, such as your name.
Cats and Scully, together at last.
I don’t fully understand why this exists, but I want five of them.
You can go casual with this simple T-shirt that has an image on both the front and the back.
Or you could really show off your fandom with a custom body-con dress!
