mushroom kingdom rollergirls

Princess Peach needs a proper roller derby name. Peaches ‘n Scream perhaps?

sailor moon guinea pig

You do. I don’t make the rules!

Above, one of a family of guineas owned by Twitter user @chikuwa_kintoki. “Owned” may not be the appropriate term. More like given free food and lodging and awesome clothes by—because pet owners know who’s really in charge. All she asks is that the pigs dress up like Sailor Moon now and then.

Below the cut: Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, Mario, Chun Li, Luffy from One Piece, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

fallen hero

We’ve added “Fallen Hero” to our Nerd Approved Shirt Store lineup and it’s on sale at just $14 for a limited time!

Somewhere Yoshi is probably laughing his ass off.

Fallen Hero ($20 $14)

jurassic mario

What if Yoshi wasn’t a cute and innocent little dinosaur? In this Super Mario Bros. and Jurassic Park mash-up t-shirt design by Taylor Rose, Yoshi is a dangerous Tyrannosaurus Rex chasing Mario, Luigi, and Peach. You might feel bad for them at first, but maybe this is what they deserve.

boo necklace

Boo is a spooky character in the Super Mario Bros. series, but this shiny pendant from Paul Michael Design makes him classy (spookassy?). The Boo necklace is made to order from sterling silver or silver with a rose gold tongue or even in 14 karat white and rose gold. The last option would make him the fanciest ghost around. Turnaround time for the Boo necklace is 3-4 weeks.

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.

Check out more photos of the belly warmers after the break.

Capture4

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!

See the video after the break.

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!
