Archives For Nintendo

I have a rather nice little collection of Game Boys as I had a bit of an obsession with them as a kid (my Tetris addiction probably didn’t help) but if there is one thing I don’t have in my collection and would die to have in my collection, it would be a giant wearable Game Boy that is playable and uses giant Game Boy cartridges.

I’m not sure who this awesome guy is or where he was spotted (if you know, please let me know in the comments below so I can give him the credit he definitely deserves), but a few days ago on reddit I came across these pictures of a guy sporting some epic Game Boy cosplay that is actually playable!

I’m not sure just how many games this guy has for people to play on his huge Game Boy costume, but I at least know there is Tetris, Dr. Mario and Donkey Kong Land judging by the second picture with another guy holding up two of the giant cartridges.

And while you can play this giant Game Boy, I’m not sure how practical it is given the size of the controls, especially for a game like Tetris.  The back-lit screen is also a bit of an authenticity killer but it does make it look better than the picture where the back-lit doesn’t seem to be turned on so I can live with it.  Back-lit or not, this Game Boy costume is epic!  Whoever this guy is, he is my hero!

Being a guy, I’m not one to wear anything in my hair (it would be pointless anyway as my hair is too short and I wear a hat all the time) but if there are any cool ladies out there that want to sport some Legend of Zelda love in their hair, I think I have found the perfect hair bow for you!

Etsy seller KillerBunnyCouture is selling these awesome Legend of Zelda inspired char hair bows that she makes for just $21.50.  That seems like a very reasonable price for a green bow with a Triforce on it and some rupees and a Master Sword charm hanging from it.  However, if those charms (made from polymer clay) don’t tickle your fancy, then she does take custom orders so if you would rather have a Hylian Shield for example, you can!  However, the price may very on custom orders so keep that in mind and make sure to discuss that with her before ordering.

Times like this, I kind of regret being a guy because I would love to wear something like that.  Even if I did have long hair, I could never pull something like that off simply because I am a guy and that sucks.  Consider yourself lucky ladies!

If there is one rule that I live my life by, it is to wear things that show off the things I love.  Whether it is a Doctor Who t-shirt, my God of War hat or my Call of Duty dog tags, you will never see me not sporting something I am passionate about (unless you see me in the shower in which case we have other issues to discuss).  I also recommend everybody else live by this rule as much as possible.  Not only does it let people get an idea of who you really are, but it is a fantastic way to start up conversations with complete strangers about the whatever it is you love that you both have in common.

Well, speaking of wearing things you love, if you are a Legend of Zelda fan, I have found the perfect necklace for you!

Etsy seller lizglizz is selling these custom Legend of Zelda Ocarina song necklaces for just $26!  Which song is it that you get you ask?  Any one you want!  The one in the picture is the Song of Time but if there is another one you like better, you can go with it!

If you like wearing necklaces and have a love for the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, than I think this is a must have for you!

Perhaps sometime in the next week, I will start catching up on Legend of Zelda games.  I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I am I am several games behind on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii and that is something I really need to rectify.  However, until my schedule allows me time to do that, I will just appreciate some awesome Legend of Zelda cosplay like the fantastic Skyward Sword inspired Princess Zelda cosplay below!

Cosplayer Kawaii Ringo spent a month working on this awesome Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword inspired Princess Zelda cosplay.  I’d say the time was well spent as her attention to detail is quite good!  I am definitely impressed!  I would definitely be interested in knowing if that harp can actually be played?

The photography was done by LJ Decker Photography.

I really wish people dressed like this normally and not just as cosplay because it looks great and the stuff people wear as normal clothing just seems boring in comparison.

Even though there are a lot of franchises whose cosplay I really enjoy, I think my all time favorite will always be the Legend of Zelda.  While Link cosplay can bit hit or miss sometimes, cosplay of characters like Princess Zelda or in this case, Princess Midna always blows me away.  And of course my pointy ear fetish that regular readers will be familiar with certainly doesn’t hurt either.  Anyway, in the past, I have found some spectacular Victorian style Princess Midna cosplay inspired by the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and I thought you guys might enjoy this Princess Midna cosplay as well!

This stunning Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess inspired Midna cosplay is being sported by cosplayer Spicy-Seasoning.  The photographer for this cool photo is Angichuu.

I’m not sure what I like most about this amazing Midna cosplay but I especially like how well done the white skin makeup is.  Is it weird that I kind of wish that some people were naturally this white?  For some reason, I find it oddly sexy.  Oh well, at least there are cosplayers willing to paint themselves white and I guess that is good enough.

Before I get into the meat of this post, I just wanted to take a moment and apologize to all of the awesome Fanboy Fashion readers for having gone MIA for over a month.  I’ve been dealing with some personal things and haven’t really felt like myself enough to post anything so rather than write sub-standard posts, I figured I just needed to take a break for a while.  However, I am finally feeling like myself again and I am ready for things to get back to normal around here so lets get to it!

I have been a big Pokemon fan since I was a kid growing up on the Red/Blue games as well as the card game and cartoon.  However, until Pokemon X/Y came out a week ago, I hadn’t played any of the Pokemon games in years (not for lack of wanting to but the battery in my old Game Boy cartridges died so it wouldn’t save my stuff anymore and I have just been too lazy to crack them open and replace the battery) but I still love them and I really enjoying the Pokemon X, even if I don’t care much for the newer Pokemon.  My how things have changed since I last played in the Gold/Silver days!  Anyway, for my fellow Pokemon fans, I have found the perfect shirt(s) for you!

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this really cool Pikachu t-shirt designed by Whitebison for just $11 today only!  If that isn’t cool enough (this is honestly the coolest Pokemon shirt design I have ever seen), if you order one as well as one of the companion shirts which features either Charmander, Squirtle or Bulbasaur from their gallery, you will also get a cool gym badge!  I should note those t-shirts are $18 but the designs are equally as cool as Pikachu so I think they are still worth it.  Of course any true Pokemon fan will have to collect all 4 shirts!

With the new Pokemon games (Pokemon X and Pokemon Y) being released at midnight tonight, I thought it seemed fitting to share a really cool Pokemon t-shirt that is on sale today only.  I can’t say Pikachu is my favorite Pokemon but he is one of my favorites.  If he is one of your favorites, I have a feeling you are going to love this shirt with Pikachu peaking out of a fake shirt pocket.

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this Pokemon inspired Pocket Monster 4 t-shirt designed by ramyb for just $11 today only!  The design is quite cute with Pikachu hanging out in a shirt pocket wearing Ash’s signature hat.

Its been years since I have played Pokemon but I am oddly excited about the new games and I think this would be the perfect shirt to wear while I am playing them.  If you are excited about the new games too, I’d recommend you pick up one of these Pikachu shirts as well!

Are you getting one of the new Pokemon games?  Let me know in the comments below!

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!

Maybe its just me, but it seems like crazy movie / Super Mario mash-up t-shirt day.  Over on my other blog, Global Geek News, today I featured a Super Mario and Godfather mash-up t-shirt that is $11 today and now I stumbled across another awesome Mario movie mash-up shirt that I thought you guys would love.

Some of my all time favorite movies are the Indiana Jones movies (not including the crystal skull one) and I have been a Super Mario Bros fan since I was two and still play the NES classic almost daily so when I saw this shirt come up for sale, you might say I got a little excited.  This is definitely one of those must buy shirts for me!

Speaking of buying this shirt, the super geeky folks over at TeeFury are selling this ‘Itsamea Jones’ Super Mario and Indiana Jones mash-up t-shirt for just $11 today only!  The very clever design was created by tomkurzanski and I’d say he did a fantastic job with it!

I know I will be buying one of these shirts today, what about you?  Let me know in the comments how much you love this shirt and if you plan on buying one for yourself or another Mario and Indiana Jones fan you know!

Seeing people do steampunk versions of iconic characters like superheroes or video games characters is always amazing.  I am constantly blown away by the incredible creativity and sense of style when people do a steampunk version of the characters they love.  In the past, I have posted some really cool steampunk style cosplay including a very impressive steampunk Princess Peach cosplay but I think this is perhaps the first time I have ever seen somebody do some steampunk Link cosplay.

This incredible Legend of Zelda inspired steampunk Link cosplay was done by MolecularAgatha.  I think she did a pretty impressive job with this cosplay!  I think my favorite part is the Triforce goggles although the leather work is pretty impressive too.  And of course, if you have been reading Fanboy Fashion or even my other blog, Global Geek News for a while, you know that I can’t do a post like this without mentioning how hot I think a girl in pointy ears is.

The equally impressive photography was taken by Daniela Alfaro Enkantazya.
