Remember how rad you were in the ’80s? You’ve got responsibilities now—your radness levels are at an all-time low. You’ve resigned yourself to a lifetime of lameness.

But you can be rad again. You just need this NES hoodie. And the best part is that you can simply hit the reset button when your back starts acting up. Blowing into the hood has been known to get things working again as well. [click to continue…]


Damn, Samus!

Alright, yes, I know. I referenced a meme. I’m the worst person alive, and I should be taken out back and shot, repeatedly, until there is nothing left of my body but a red-pink mulch wrapped in a Firefly tee-shirt.

But – but! – these Nintento Vans are awesome. And, not to undersell some of the spectacular custom Vans we’ve featured in the past, but these babies are officially licensed.

Hot on the heels (arf) of their Disney and Star Wars themed lines, these classic Nintendo sneakers are expected to hit stores in June. I’ve never owned a pair of Vans in my life – I’m really more of a Converse kind of guy, if only for the Doctor Who connection – but I can’t miss these phenomenal designs.

Check out photos of each revealed design below.

nes my life 1

What if the items on our to-do list were classic Nintendo games? NES My Life imagines our everyday boring activities as retro games, and the designs are pretty funny. Imagine riveting titles like Commute (hours of gameplay!), Job Hunt, and Student Loan Scramble? Hey, if you have to live through such activities, you may as well have fun and poke a little fun at them.

Fashionably Geek reader Jen tipped us to the matching tattoos she and her husband Gazz got as an early wedding present from their tattoo artist friend Cherub.

Geek love is awesome. Gotta say. Congrats Jen and Gazz!

These Nike Toki NDs have been custom painted by high school art teacher Michael Kohl as a tribute to the Nintendo Entertainment System and its iconic games. He has handpainted scenes from Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! and Mega Man 2 so perfectly rendered that you’d swear they’re screen shots. He’s also turned the toes of the sneakers into NES controllers as the finishing touch. If you wish you had a pair, then you’re in luck, because Michael takes custom orders!

Word is that blowing on your NES cartridges back in the day actually did more harm than good, but I don’t believe it. That sh*t always worked. Link knows what I’m talking about—and he’s an expert.

This made to order belt buckle features an actual coin slot from an arcade game. Once upon a time its red light beckoned to gamers, luring them into the arcade with the promise of fame and fortune. Okay, definitely not fortune since it sucked up all your quarters, but it might have given you fame with the folks in the arcade at any given moment if you managed a spectacular new high score. It’s also available as a recycled NES Power Button version (pictured after the break).

Now here’s one more thing that you can do with your old video game console instead of throwing it out: turn it into a shoulder bag. Of course, you’d have to open it up and remove all the parts inside to make room for your stuff.

If that sounds like too much work for you, then you’re in luck because Etsy seller Woody6Switch actually has a couple of these Nintendo NES shoulder bags just waiting for gamers like you to snatch them up.

Check out more images of the NES bags after the break.

“The Master” is someone who could use this thing effectively against that asshole dog in Duck Hunt.
