Super Mario Brothers Kimono

I’m a little sad that my Japanese isn’t good enough to tell you the complete story behind this assuming there is one. From what I can gather the original Japanese post is just a blog post about geeky T-Shirts, and it happens to have this Kimono in it too.

The homemade (I assume?) Mario Kimono has a scent from Super Mario Bros embroidered on the “Obi” and the start screen on the back, as well as having Mario, Peach, Bowser a Boo and a 1-Up mushroom on the kimono.

The Famicom (What the Japanese NES was) controller obi tie makes it perfect.

Incidentally the same post also has this pretty cool Gameboy Dress:

And these funky Gamer tights:

This is the 21st in a series of “Show Me Your Gamer Shirts” Blog posts by this blogger, so there is a lot more to see there.

Crazy Katana Headphones

I’m not one to describe things as being “Crazy” lightly but in this case that is actually what these headphones by Japanese Company Solid Alliance are actually called. At first thought you’d think it might be quite cool to wonder about looking like your cranium had been skewered by a roaming ronin (Who for some reason decided not to reclaim his sword) but thinking about it, these actually defeat the purpose of headphones.

I wear headphones as a means of trying to blank the world out, if you wore these you would have a constant stream of people hassling you to comment on your, arguably quite cool, headphones.

They don’t just come in Katana form though, the “Crazy” range also includes an apple with an arrow through it, a mushroom and mini ears.

There is also a second set which allows you to have bolts (Called the Franken) a banana, cat’s paws or sushi coming out of your ears…

Super Mario Eyes

I’ve blogged about Katie Alves doing Disney Eye Makeup before but this is a different story, this time she’s doing Mario! And thus warrants me highlighting her talents yet again. Apparently there is a whole Mario themed photo shoot in the works…

Holy crap it’s Mario! I’m actually in the works of doing a Mario themed photo shoot with a photographer, so I’m testing out different designs. I don’t think I’ll be using this one though. It took way too long and the details are way too tiny. The model’s eyes are tiny compared to my drag queen shaped eyes!

Ok, so we’ve got the coin counter, those hill things, the piranha plant, the ? box, a Goomba, step things with coins, Bullet Bill, an odd looking Mario in the tanooki suit (with wiggling tail), a mushroom, Koopa Troopa, Yoshi, the flag pole and finally the castle! Ahhh so many tiny little things. I’m quite proud of that Yoshi. Frig, that was grossly tiny.

On a side note, I need your help guys! I’ve dropped down to 6th place in the Makeupbee/Sugarpill contest. It would mean the world to me if you voted for me! [link] A “like” is a vote!
