8-Bit Fashion

8-Bit Fashion Image

Nice to see games inspire fashion beyond ironic, hipster T-Shirts. Designer Anrealage incorporated low resolution or pixelated graphics into a recent collection shown in Tokyo.

Mario propaganda posters

These have been called Super Mario propaganda posters, but clearly these are Bowser propaganda posters. These are what we picture at the Bowser headquarters, in the Koopa and Goomba barracks and on the walls of their nurseries at home. It would only be through omnipresent propaganda that Bowser could command his followers on so many failed attempts to take over the Mushroom Kingdom.

Cosplay: Pokemon's Jessie and James (Team Rocket)

Cosplay: Pokemon's Jesse and James (Team Rocket)

Since their first appearance in Pokémon, Jessie and James (and Meowth) held the distinction for being some of the more unique adversaries you could come across in a video game world. Funny, annoying and empathetic, they were as big a part of the franchise as Ash Ketchum and crew. Given all that, it isn't surprising that someone like Malro-Doll would attempt Team Rocket cosplay.

Super Mario-themed Converses are Japan only

Super Mario-themed Converses are Japan only

It's been years since I actually cared about a pair of kicks or Converse for that matter. I would gladly make an exception though if Nintendo and Converse bothered to release these limited-edition Super Mario Bros.-themed Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers in the United States.

The first zombie-proof house?

The first zombie-proof house?

For proof of how ubiquitous zombies have become in our geek culture, look no further than this zombie-proof home. Normal people are probably thinking "That home would definitely keep out Al Qaeda!" but gamers, geeks and anyone that came after Generation X are thinking "That home would definitely keep out an undead army!"

Card Sagas Wars: Samus vs Master Chief

Finally, an answer to the question of who would win in a fight between Samus and Master Chief.

One thing though, Samus seems pretty underpowered here. She seemed to call everyone from Princess Peach to Pocky and Rocky for help to take Master Chief down.

Four-year old gets Mario-themed birthday party

Four-year old gets Mario-themed birthday party

Some kids get parties where they get to dress up as their favorite super hero or game character and their Mom and Dad throws around some related paraphernalia (mostly store-bought shlock).

This four-year-old's parents went above the call to create something so authentic and detailed that its a shame the four-year-old won't remember it when he or she is older.

Cosplay: Jade's flawless Mortal Kombat kosplay

Cosplay: Mortal Kombat's Jade

There has been an awful lot of talk lately regarding Ed Boon's new Mortal Kombat game due out on April 19th. So I figure, why not post some Mortal Kombat cosplay images? CelestialMaiden is responsible for this stunning Jade cosplay.
