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.

itvi_nintendo_entertainment_system_backpack

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.

fallout mario top

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.

punk princess peach cosplay 1

Has Princess Peach ever looked so tough? I think not. This punked out take on Peach by Amanda Finley Cosplay is sassy and so very cool. I bet she doesn’t need to be saved. Peach is part of an entire Nintendo Punk Rock cosplay group that appeared at Ichibancon earlier this month; here’s hoping we’ll see more photos soon!

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.

NES controller 1

Even after all these years, retro gaming is still the one.

Do you long for the days of simpler gaming systems? If so, this ring from Austin Moore’s Earth Art Jewelry and Gem might be for you. The sterling silver band features engraved bricks a la Super Mario Bros. surrounding the game controller, and the A and B buttons feature natural rubies. That’s what we call leveling up.

The ring is made to order and has a 1-2 week turnaround.

See the ring from another angle after the break.
