The Luigi death stare was scary in the game and a fun meme while it lasted, but now it has been given new life in the real world where it’s striking fear in the hearts of mortals.

This intrepid cosplayer at Anime Expo 2014 is unstoppable. Move out of the way, people. He’s coming through!

mario shoes 1

The power-up star from Super Mario Bros. is flipping perfect for the Converse One Star shoe line. The Super Star can take the place of the regular star, and as you can see from the above photo, it looks stylish and awesome. Converse is making the style available in red and green, but they’re only selling them in Japan.

See detail shots and the green version after the break.

post apocalyptic mario grou

Want some advice on preparing for the end of days? This cosplay group looks like a good resource. This post-apocalyptic Super Mario Bros. group was at Comicpalooza in Houston over the weekend, and from left to right the line-up includes: Luigi, Mario, Bowser, Yoshi, Princess Peach, and a 1-Up mushroom. I love the variety on display in their weapons and accessories!

It seems like more classy geek jewelry designs show up on the internet every day. Aren’t we lucky? The latest batch of gems I’ve spotted include the work of Austin Moore. The silversmith owns Earth Art Gem & Jewelry and has beautifully crafted rings from a wide variety of fandoms. His line-up includes Super Mario Bros., Doctor Who, Legend of Zelda, Star Wars, Star Trek, and more. Some of the rings are more subtle, while others shout your favorite franchise loud and clear.

I’ll start making my wishlist now.

More lovely flair after the break.

star wars zelda tee

Your princess isn’t in another castle, she’s in another palace! In this clever mash-up, Princess Peach takes the place of Leia in Jabba’s palace. Bowser is transformed into a Hutt, and Salacious Crumb has been replaced by a Koopa. I pretty much adore everything about this Star Wars meets Super Mario Bros. t-shirt design, but I especially like the details like the spikes on Bowser’s collar.

Order quickly! The shirt’s only available for one more day.

super mario cuff 1

Square rhinestones make wonderful pixels – who knew?! Instructables user mactothefuture was aware of the trick and used tons of rhinestones to make a cuff bracelet featuring the question block from Super Mario Bros. She wrote a how-to, and to make your own, you only have to make or purchase a leather cuff and buy tons of rhinestones (okay, like 300 of them). Then you carefully apply them to the cuff with a rhinestone picker. It might be tedious work but just look at the finished product! I love sparkly and geeky combos.

See a few more pics of the rhinestone cuff after the break.

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.

game backpack 2

There’s no such thing as too many bags, and when the backpacks are styled after Super Mario Bros you shouldn’t resist! I Am Gifts has an adorable trio of such designs available, and each one is creative. The Bowser bag pictured above is bright green and yellow and comes with a tiny plushie – they all do. If the bad guy isn’t your favorite, you also choose from 1-Up Mushroom and Question Block designs. It’s hard to pick!

Check out two more styles after the break.
