nintendo belly warmer

Ever heard of belly warmers? I’m guessing most of us haven’t. The accessory, also called a haramaki, looks like a corset, but it’s design is intended to keep your stomach warm. It used to be worn under clothes, but Japanese company Hobonichi has been treating the garment as a fashionable piece of clothing. And now, they’ve gone geeky with them! They’ve teamed up with Nintendo to make belly warmers featuring Super Mario Bros. and Mr. Saturn. I think they look cozy.

travel boy backpack

Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the Game Boy, and this TravelBoy backpack is a fantastic homage. It has tons of detail (including raised buttons) and it’s made from PVC and nylon, so the materials are easy to spot clean with a washcloth. There’s also plenty of room inside the backpack to hold everything you need – including an actual portable gaming system.

boo

This year’s E3 had attendees being stalked by the most terrifying of characters. That’s right, it was King Boo, sneaking up on people while they were taking a break, having a chat, and generally just wandering about the floor of the convention. Thankfully, all anyone had to do to thwart King Boo was look at him, just like in the game.

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.

nintendo dog header

Putting costumes on dogs is one thing but shaving their fur and sculpting and dying it? That’s something else altogether. It’s a competitive industry though, and groomers compete for prizes at several events. At Intergroom 2014 in New Jersey, one groomer went completely crazy and made the neon-colored “Super Nintendog.”

The canine is one part Bowser, one part Mario, and has other small touches from the Super Mario games. The amount of detail included on one dog is kinda crazy. I don’t even know how to process what I’m seeing.

nintendo controller ring

I admit that I think the concept of promise rings is silly, but this concept design of an “Intendo” ring is fabulous. It’s from the creative mind of Paul Michael Designs, and it has a lot going for it. It’s a fun design sure to make any Nintendo fan smile, the power cord band is unique, it has shining gemstones for extra sparkle, and it’s amusing. If you want to give a promise ring to a gamer, I can’t imagine a better choice.

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!

Duck Hunt Skirt 2

This skirt brings back memories. Duck Hunt was the second video game I ever played, and I would sit in front of my television for way too long hunting pixelated ducks. Go Follow Rabbits put the colorful design on a made to order skirt, and it’s adorable. Place your order now to receive the skirt in 2-3 weeks.
