At this point, I think you are all pretty familiar with my dislike of wearing things like rings because I feel they get in the way and are too restrictive, not to mention my fear of never being able to get them off once I get them on. However, I still enjoy looking at and posting about really cool rings that I happen to come across while I am browsing my favorite websites. Speaking of cool rings, I think I have found one that any fan of the Nintendo NES console will love! And yes, I know saying Nintendo NES is redundant but I feel like it is the style I want to write in for once so deal with it! 😛
Depending on how long you have been a reader here at Fanboy Fashion or my other site, Global Geek News, you may or may not know that I never leave the house without a hat and I grew up playing the Nintendo Entertainment System. Well, somebody has finally combined those two things and created a baseball cap style hat with an NES controller embroidered on it! I might not need a new hat since I just got a new God of War hat that I just started wearing but I think my next has is likely to be this cool NES Controller hat, something I would recommend for anybody else out there that also spent much of their lives with the NES!
The incredibly nerdy people over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this sweet grey Nintendo Entertainment System controller hat for just $21.99! The hat is a snapback hat so you can adjust it to fit your head which in my experience is a lot better than those hats with elastic (like my God of War cap of which I am on my third one because I love the design so much), which take no time to wear out and suddenly even the lightest gust of wind can steal the cap from your head like the playground bully you hated in school.
It kind of amazes me when I sit back and think about the fact that I have been playing video games for over 24 years now. All those years ago, I started my gaming addiction with my NES (which I still have and it works) and I have a lot of fond memories of growing up playing games like Super Mario Bros, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Battletoads, Duck Hunt and many others. That is why I am so fond of this NES controller shirt and I am sure that anybody else that grew up with a NES will be too!
The awesome geeks over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this nostalgic NES controller shirt for just $19.99! Right now, they only have a size large in stock but other sizes are on order so if you need a different size, keep checking back and I am sure they will have them in the next few days.
I would love to know how many of you grew up with an NES? Do you still play it? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share your favorite NES games as I am always looking for new ones to try!
A NES controller isn’t exactly what you think of when you think of sexy, but I would say this NES controller tattoo with a Super Mario Bros star and 1up mushroom qualifies. It doesn’t seem to be very often that I see a hip tattoo so that was one of the reasons I decided to post it (besides it being completely geeky and awesome).
Unfortunately, I don’t know who this girl is or who the tattoo artist is that made this NES controller tattoo to give them credit but I would say they both must be some pretty awesome people.
I absolutely love it when girls proudly show off their gamer side. Whether its something as simple as Mario earrings or full on cosplay, I love when women aren’t afraid to let the world know that they love video games. Perhaps the best way to do that without going all out in amazing cosplay would be with this amazing NES controller style shirt from Etsy seller morosemelonhead. For the NES loving girls out there, this awesome NES controller shirt can be yours for just $49.99! However, beware of guys that may run up to you in hopes of doing some button mashing.
