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.

Nintendo Super Mario Belt

Super Mario Belt

I’m convinced I blogged this ages ago but apparently I haven’t: Janet of Saluki Feathers created this belt featuring the final level of Super Mario Brothers back in August as a birthday present for her brother.

It hit Reddit went viral, the internet had a collective joy-gasm at them and now she has started selling them on her Etsy page. They aren’t cheap at $395.00 but they are cool…

Thanks Laura for reminding me about this.

LEGO: Legend of Zelda

So I was looking for the original source for the above image by Wes Talbott, and I stumbled onto something wonderful. Apparently Lego have a site where people can suggest and vote on new Lego sets and collaborations. If a project gets 10,000 votes it will be submitted to Lego for review. On this page I found that there is a submission for a Lego Zelda! And it’s reached the the required amount of support to be considered by Lego!

The guy who is working on the second Lego Zelda is also working on renders for a Lego Super Mario Brothers but it’s still early days on that…

Awesome Lego Creations of H.Y. Leung

Lego 8-Bit Warp Pipe Planter
This Lego Pipe Planter by H.Y. Leung is pretty cool, it’s made to look just like a pipe from Super Mario Brothers and the blockiness of the Lego makes it look that little bit more 8-Bit.

Also check out this Lego pencil, by the looks of things it’s actually a mechanical pencil and you can write with it!

He’s also Made a Lego paper Lantern which is semi opaque and lets light through.

Bullet Bill Kitchenaid Mixer

Boom, bitches!

What else are you going to do when you get a mixer that looks like this? Apart from order some custom decals from Mustard Seed Dreams to make it look like a Bullet Bill from Super Mario Brothers? I’m a little disappointed that the arms aren’t little plastic arms, but it still looks cool.

Bullet bill, up in your grill!

I only hope that the person who writes Bake With Vengence used this mixer to make this cake:
