Other than trying to catch the old Bob Ross painting show on PBS on Saturday mornings, I can’t say I pay a tremendous amount of attention to paintings.  However, I have always been a fan of Van Gogh and especially his Starry Night painting which is even the wallpaper for some of my devices like my iPod Touch.  When  you combine that with my love for Super Mario, its safe to say you have come up with a t-shirt design that I can’t pass up!

The fantastic people over at TeeFury are doing one of their twofury sales today where they put to shirts against each other to see which one sells more.  Todays competitors are Super Starry Night by Naolito and I’ll Always Protect You by Logan Feliciano, both of which you can get for $11 today only!  Whether you love Super Mario Bros, Bioshock or both, I suspect you will want at least one of these cool shirts (designs below)!

Don’t forget, even if you aren’t a big fan the colors of these shirts, they do have other options to choose from.  Speaking for myself, I am definitely getting the Mario shirt but I am torn between the shirt being black (I already have a hundred or so black shirts) or the navy blue which I like just as much.

Due to some back issues, I have always been a bit afraid to try Yoga as some of those moves (and by that I mean most of them) look like they would be pure torture for me.  However, even though I’m skeptical as to whether or not Yoga would be a good thing for me to try, I know there are a lot of people that do Yoga, especially women and for those women who also happen to love Star Wars, I have found the droid Yoga pants you have been looking for!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these awesome ladies R2-D2 Yoga pants for $39.99.  But wait!  Before you buy a pair, make sure to use the coupon code ‘DOTHEMATH’ which will score you 30% off!  That code is good through 8/10/14 so that should give you plenty of time to pick up these pants at a substantial discount.

There is also a size chart on the product’s page if you aren’t quite sure which size you need.  Whatever size that is, this is definitely the pair of droid pants you are looking for!

Now I am curious, do any of you do Yoga (or one of the many variations)?  If so, let me know in the comments below!  I am curious to know which style people prefer and how it has helped them.

Even though I love seeing funny photobombed pictures like everybody else, I have never had the guts to photobomb somebody.  I’m just not comfortable with the idea of ruining the special moment somebody is trying to capture by acting like an idiot.  Whenever I see somebody trying to take a picture, I do the polite thing and move out of the way until they are done.  Maybe some day I will do it but I just don’t think that is me as I tend to adhere pretty closely to the idea of treating others how I would like to be treated.  Anyway, speaking of funny photobombs, if you are a Star Wars fan, then I suspect you will love this funny shirt of Chewbacca photobombing Darth Vader and a couple of Stormtroopers with a giant #1 Rebels foam finger like you would see at a sports event.

The nerdy folks over at 80sTees are selling this hilarious Wookie Photobomb T-Shirt for $22.  Whether you are a Chewbacca or Darth Vader fan, I have a feeling that as long as you love Star Wars and have a sense of humor, you will love this shirt!  Also, this tee is tagless for those that care about such things.

It seems like every time I find some good female Link or Princess Zelda cosplay to post, I am always asking myself if I post it too often.  I have posted some great female Link cosplay in the past such as this female Link cosplay and this one just to give a couple of examples.  But I wonder if maybe I do it too often?  I kind of feel like I do but then I remember just how much I love women with pointy ears and then I stop caring and post more.  Well, I found some more great female Link cosplay inspired by Ocarina of Time and thanks to the fact that I am a sucker for pointy ears, here is yet another female Link cosplay post!

This lovely lady Link cosplay is done by the cosplayer Lolita Zombie and these cool pictures were taken by Photographers in Philadelphia.  I think the pictures fit nicely with the cosplay even if she doesn’t really feel in the environments (Photoshop can’t make everything look natural).  I especially like the inclusion of Navi in the one picture.

It always irritates me when things I really want aren’t sold in the US, mainly because the cost of getting something imported is insane.  I’ve been known to pay upwards of $45 just to get a DVD shipped from Europe since it couldn’t be found in the US.  Its not very often I have stuff imported (I would quickly go broke if I did it a lot), but sometimes it is just necessary and I suspect that this is one of those times because the Super Mario Bros shoes below are awesome!

In the past, I have posted some really cool Super Mario Bros themed shoes including some neat Super Mario Bros heels (here is another pair I like just as much) as well as some Paper Mario VANS sneakers.  However, unlike those, these Super Mario Bros themed Converse One Star shoes are going to be available to the masses, at least assuming you live in Japan.

These shoes come in red or green depending on if you want the old 8-bit Mario or 8-bit Bowser and the feature a Super Star on the side replacing the normal Converse Star.

Apparently if you can find them in Japan, they are running in the area of 20,000 yen or $195.  At that price, I think I can live without them because by the time I got done with the import costs and everything, I wouldn’t be surprised if the total cost ended up closer to $300 and that is just crazy for Mario shoes.  I will never pay that much for shoes!

I’ve seen people do all sorts of cool makeup jobs with their eyes and stuff (like the Riddler eye makeup and the Spider-Man eye makeup I have posted in the past), but never have I seen or even heard of lip makeup.  As well done and cool as these Ewok lips are, I really hope this isn’t a trend that catches on because its just a little too weird for me.  No matter how geeky the lips may be, I just don’t seen myself seeing lip makeup like this and saying ‘I got to get me some of that!’  Please tell me I am not alone in feeling this way!

Fashion trend of not, these Ewok lips are still great and they were made by special effects makeup artist Crystal Effin Overland.  She is clearly quite talented with makeup!  I can’t even imagine how much restraint it took to not accidentally lick her lips and ruin this work of Ewok art.  I don’t think I could do it because I am slightly crazy about how my lips feel at all times.  I’m weird like that but I’m sure you have your quirks too!

Maybe its because I’m not a big fan of babies, but I’ve never been one to go crazy about cute baby outfits like many people I know.  Generally speaking, I think the prices that baby outfits cost is insane, especially when they only fit in them for such a short amount of time.  It just doesn’t feel like you really get your moneys worth.  However, I managed to come across a onesie that it not only fairly reasonably priced, but it is the perfect for any Star Trek fan!

The amazing Star Trek lovers over at ThinkGeek are selling these adorable Star Trek: The Next Generation uniform onesies for just $19.99!  They come in red, blue and gold and in a variety of sizes ranging from 6 to 18 months.  There is no guarantee that your kid will grow up to love Star Trek: The Next Generation as much as you do but with a onesie like this, I’d say you have improved your odds.  But be warned, referring to your baby by their rank in public might result in people making fun of you.

One of the things I always thought was a bit silly when I used to watch the Pokemon cartoons (back before they introduced a ton of new Pokemon I just couldn’t bring myself to care about) was that every city had a Nurse Joy and an Officer Jenny.  It seemed like kind of an odd element in the show but still cool to see the same characters everywhere.  However, I’m guessing most people weren’t as intrigued by the idea as I was because I don’t think I have seen cosplay of either of them until today.

Cosplayer Siren’s Belle is the beautiful girl sporting this great Officer Jenny cosplay. I think she does a great job bringing the cartoon character to life although I can’t help but think that it would be better if she had Officer Jenny’s Growlithe with her.  Seeing one without the other just feels a little odd but since Growlithe isn’t real, I guess its not a big deal.  Also, the photography is pretty good which was done by Beethy.

Now I really feel the urge to go watch the old Pokemon cartoon.  Off to Netflix I go!

The ‘Dogs Playing Poker’ painting series by C.M. Cooling is incredibly popular but it has never quite been my taste when it comes to art.  I think they are well done but when it comes to art, I guess I am more of a Van Gogh and Bob Ross kind of guy.  However, this poker dogs t-shirt featuring many of the most iconic cartoon dogs is something I would love to wear!

The stylish people over at BustedTees are selling this Poker Dogs t-shirt for just $20!  It features some of the most famous cartoon dogs in history playing poker including Snoopy, Scooby-Doo, Pluto, Odie, Brian and more.

If you grew up watching any the cartoons with these dogs whether it was Scooby-Doo, Garfield’s Odie, Mickey’s Pluto or Peter Griffin’s Brian, I think you will find something to love about this shirt.  I grew up watching all of them although I have no clue who the two dogs are that are closest to the viewer with their backs toward you.  I know I have seen the one on the left before but I have no idea who he is and I have never seen the purple one on the right.  If anybody would like to educate me about them in the comments below, I would greatly appreciate it!

While I appreciate great cosplay of all types, Zelda cosplay is probably my favorite.  In general, I think the costumes tend to be more elegant than others and if you have been reading Fanboy Fashion or my other sites like Global Geek News for a while, you know I have a major pointy ear fetish.  Well, apparently it is my lucky day because I came across some amazing Princess Zelda and Princess Hilda cosplay inspired by Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

The two stunningly beautiful cosplayers are Mandalynn (Princess Zelda) and Guhzoontight (Princess Hilda).  The photographer who took some truly awesome shots with these two is Alexis McNichol.

Perhaps the most impressive part of this amazing cosplay is that it was Mandalynn’s first cosplay and Guhzoontight’s second so its not like they are even pros at this.  I’m not sure how much time they spent making this cosplay but I’d say it was well worth it as both costumes turned out looking fabulous!

This has inspired me to put Watch Dogs on hold for a little bit just so I can finish the last half of A Link Between Worlds because it really is a great game.
