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…]

Saga fans will know where I’m going with this. Seriously though, we don’t know who this Anime Expo cosplayer is, but kudos on the working Super Mario Bros. screen head. We have so many questions. Who are you? How can you see? Are you just pressing buttons randomly or what? Check out more photos from maz below. [click to continue…]

Uniqlo recently held a contest that asked fans to submit Nintendo-themed t-shirt designs, and the results are amazing. Out of a field of 16,000 entries, 25 of the best were chosen with three claiming the top prizes. Did I mention that the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto was the final judge of these designs?

This bandolier/belt encompasses the entire history of Nintendo controllers on one pointless wearable. Well, pointless as a functional part of your wardrobe or, in fact, as functional controllers—but if you are a huge Nintendo fan or you just like to fidget, this product may be for you. Currently, it’s actually available to purchase on Amazon or Etsy for $95. [click to continue…]

Actually, these custom kicks from Freaker Sneaks are customized Air Jordan 4s based on the Super Famicom design. By most accounts it was better looking than the North American NES console, but I would love to see a splash of purple on the plastic bits to break up all of that grey. On the plus side the buttons on the heel look great and are actually pressable. [click to continue…]

Design student Paxton Porter came up with these Legend of Zelda-themed shoe designs as part of the application process for an internship with Adidas. Needless to say, Adidas should jump at the chance to bring this guy and his idea on board. [click to continue…]

This Famicom cosplay by @RuiReiChannel was created for a Halloween contest in Japan and it’s a winner as far as we’re concerned. In fact, we want to see more gaming console cosplay. I mean an N64 cosplay with a partner dressed as a GoldenEye cartridge would be killer.

Check out more pics of the costume below. [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.

This certainly isn’t the first NES-themed bag we’ve seen, but it’s definitely the best. Just look at all of the details!

This Nintendo Entertainment System Console Backpack is pretty sweet. It has dimensional details on the outside, including vents, power/reset buttons & controller sockets. Note that the vents don’t actually open to reveal the contents of your backpack; that could be counterproductive to keeping items inside. But you can still get to your goods by using the dual-zippers with little controller zipper pulls. Use it to carry your books. Use it to store your amiibo collection. Use it to hold your actual NES out in the garage and protect it from the elements.

Take a closer look below.

Mario’s been a doctor. He’s raced cars. He’s even gone to space. But he’s never experienced a Fallout-style apocalypse—until now. Redditor 3dbdotcom recently cosplayed as a Fallout-themed Mario, and his costume is on point (all that scrap metal!). He also made his friend and wife equally awesome Fallout-themed Luigi and Princess Peach costumes, which you can check out in the gallery below.
