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!
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.
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!
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!
With Father’s Day just a couple of weeks away (June 15th for those who don’t know), have you figured out what you are getting your father or the dad in your life for the special day? To be honest, it hadn’t even crossed my mind yet as I am one of those people that doesn’t get whatever gift I am getting until the last minute (also known as the last day possible for Amazon to get it to me on time). However, for those of you who aren’t horrible procrastinators like I am and know the dad they are getting a gift for is a gamer, then I think I have found the t-shirt for you and it is dirt cheap!
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!
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!
Most people don’t know this little fact about me, but I used to be utterly repulsed by tattoos of any kind regardless of where they were on the body or how big they were.
I always used to prefer the look of plain skin to tattoos of whatever and to an extent that is still true. However, I think part of my original dislike of tattoos was that I has just never seen any that were really well done (I guess the tattoo artists and prison inmates in my area suck at doing decent looking tattoos). It wasn’t until I went to a local sci-fi convention and saw a women with an an incredibly well done Spock tattoo on one shoulder blade and an equally good looking Picard tattoo on the other that I realized they could actually be pretty cool. Now I have come to really enjoy them (assuming they are well done).
Well, speaking of tattoos that are well done, I think this Super Mario Bros tattoo on this persons leg has to be one of if not the best Mario tattoos I have ever seen! The color is perhaps the best I have seen on ANY tattoo as well!
Unfortunately, I don’t know who this leg belongs to or who the tattoo artist was that inked this work of gaming art so if you know who they are, please let me know in the comments below so we can give them credit!
I know a lot of people with great looking hair but its not very often that they do something with it that just makes my jaw drop. I think the last time that happened was when I woman I knew just decided to shave her head. Well, speaking of shaved heads, one Super Mario Bros fan decided to get what is perhaps the coolest haircut I have ever seen and what I am going to name the Mario.
Sadly, I don’t know who this guy is or who their barber is to give them credit as I just saw this come across my Facebook feed last week so if you know who this guy is or who did this haircut, please let us know in the comments below!
I normally keep my hair really shirt (just a hair longer than this guy) and I would love to have a Mario haircut but I don’t think my barber has the skills to pull this off. I would love to sport a Mario haircut though!
I’m curious how long it took to make this and how much it cost? So many questions, so few answers!
One of the downsides of being a guy is that we really don’t get any cool pants to wear. In my case, I can’t even think of the last time I have worn something other than jeans. I have to admit, I am rather jealous of women that wear pants like the awesome pair of New Super Mario Bros leggings below.
The folks at ROMWE are selling these awesome Super Mario blue leggings for just $29.99! I’d recommend consulting their size and fit guide to figure out which pair is best for you but since these are made of elastic fabric, I would expect there to be a little give no matter what size you go with.
Why can’t guys get cool pants like these?! I would love to wear some Super Mario Bros pants! I see a huge market opportunity here for somebody willing to pursue pants like these for guys.
When you have played Super Mario Bros as many times as I have ( and I still play it daily), you are pretty familiar with where you are going to see Bullet Bill come flying in your direction. However, especially for those that are new to the game, it would be very helpful if there was a Bullet Bill crossing sign to alert you to possible flying bullets with arms.
Well, such signs might not exist in the Super Mario games but they do exist on this t-shirt!
If you are looking for a great conversation starter about your love for Super Mario Bros, wearing this shirt would be the perfect thing for you! I find there is no better way to meet fellow geeks than by wearing something geeky which allows them a topic of conversation to start with you. I have a feeling a giant yellow sign on your chest will accomplish that quite well.
I can honestly say I have never met anybody like me in that I refuse to wear any sort of ring. Even when I was in high school, I think I was the only one who didn’t order a class ring just because I find wearing something like that around my fingers to be annoying in the same way that nails on a chalkboard are annoying. It is hard to really explain my dislike of rings but I see no possible way to convince me to wear one. That said, if I ever lost my mind and decided to wear one, it would have to be one of these amazing NES cartridge rings!
Etsy seller ohmygeekness is selling these amazing custom NES cartridge rings for just $16! While I would certainly be happy with either Super Mario Bros or the Legend of Zelda cartridge (if I wore a ring), you can have any game made for you!
I suppose if I had to wear a ring and got one of these, I would probably go with DuckTales or Battletoads. It would be a tough call to make and luckily I don’t have to make it!
If you loved NES games and decide to get one of these rings, I would love to hear what game you chose in the comments below.
For as cool as I think a lot of Japanese stuff is, I have never really got into the kimono thing. There isn’t anything that I dislike about them, I just can’t see myself lounging around the house in one. However, I have seen some cool ones before but none cool enough to make me want one. That is until today. After seeing this amazing Super Mario Bros kimono, I really want one!
I’m not sure who this woman is sporting this phenomenal Super Mario Bros kimono, but she must be one awesome geek to wear it! If anybody knows who this is, please let me know in the comments so I can give her credit! I would also love to know if she made this herself of if it can be purchased somewhere. Pink isn’t really my color, but if I can buy one for myself in another color, I definitely would!
I love the Blooper scarf too as it really completes the Super Mario Bros look.
