mario pipe

Inspired by the art of René Magritte, this “Not a pipe” design by AlexMDC puts Mario in a bit of a bind. Then again, this may just be one of his mushroom hallucinations.

Oh, so that’s how Charmander gets his fire abilities! I mean, if eating a fire flower works for an Italian plumber, it’s bound to work for a Pokemon, right? If you dig this Charmander-munching-on-a-dead-fire-flower design, you can get it on a t-shirt, sweatshirt, pillowcase or as an art print from Naolito.

Check out the Charmander image on a hoodie and a t-shirt after the break…

hood

You get your choice of either three different Mario hoodies or a Link hoodie complete with sword and shield on the back. Mario fans can pick the man himself, Luigi or Wario. Each even has a hood styled to look like their caps with an initial on the front. These are the perfect way to get in a little cosplay without a lot of work.

This is Micro Kitty Cosplay in a costume designed to combine Princess Peach with Slave Leia. Here’s a case where crossing the streams of two very different worlds resulted in something incredible.

This femme Wario cosplay features Kayla Rose in a costume she created. The dress was inspired by the very girlie Alice in Wonderland, but she kept Wario’s big bushy mustache and eyebrows for fun. Photography by DV8 Props.

This Mario cosplay brought a whole family together at Anime Matsuri in Houston, Texas. It started out with the Smith sisters, known as Twinzit cosplay, but this time they brought their Dad and four younger brothers along for the party. The pictures of the final result are wonderful, but the video showing how the facial sculpts and make-up were done is just incredible to see.

This “Plumber Auryn” (aka Mario Auryn) design may not grant you wishes or protect you from ravenous piranha plants, but it sure does look cool. The design, which was created by artist Rodrigo Marckezini, is available on T-shirts, posters, cards and stickers too.

This great 8-Bit Mario cosplay was captured on the streets of Japan. It was part of a cosplay festival held in the Nipponbashi district of Osaka. Although this cosplay started with just Mario, a Luigi wandered by during the festival creating the perfect photo op.

mario split

Much like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Mario is capable of pulling off the most epic of splits. Don’t let that goofy mustache, affinity for mushrooms or that stubby plumber’s body fool you: Mario is one living, breathing, finely crafted machine of awesomeness.
