Reddit user carpenter75‘s daughter wanted a Super Mario Bros. themed room. So the hardworking dad got to work, putting things together to convert the room into a Mario World recreation. Apart from the decals and paint covering the walls, the room includes Mario themed bedding, fabric storage boxes, window blinds, and a canvas “start screen”.
Mario and Luigi come to life in 3D and start zooming around on this board of Mario Kart 7 Puzzle Circuit. It is a customizable racing track and includes Mario and Luigi go-karts. We were expecting it to be larger and more action packed, but I guess as far as playthings for children go, this one would work super. Make it bigger and a bit more action packed and the world will be all up on it in seconds. Costs $60.
The fourth installment of the fan made Mario series, Mario Warfare is out. This time around, there’s Mario fighting in the Smash Club, taking on Link, Ness, Little Mac, Kirby, Ash and Pikachu. Link, dude, you need to work on your self-esteem. Also, Mario where the hell did you get the heart to treat Pikachu that way. Plus there’s a somewhat hilarious training scene where Donkey Kong trains Peach using bananas, at one point nearly thrusting his banana down her throat.
We first saw artist Fernando Reza‘s Mario propaganda posters a couple of years ago. Since then, the artist has upgraded the set to include several new posters. The set now has 17 prints, which goes on to show that the war in the mushroom kingdom is alive and getting more fierce by the passing minutes. Prints available on the artist’s shop.
Popsicles in Mario flavor? Well, that sounds like a good idea provided the shrooms be as good as the ones Mario takes. Since that isn’t happening, we might as well just enjoy prints of Mario character representations as popsicles. The series by Chungkong has the catchphrase Frozen Bros. on a stick which, we might add sounds quite suggestively morbid. The prints though, are a delight, and Bullet Bill finally gets his time to shine.
It’s almost been half a year since the last episode, but Mario Warfare, the fan made web series is now back. This time, it’s Donkey Kong territory, and well, Donkey Kong is a pretty interesting guy. If you aren’t caught up with the series, take a look at part 1 and part 2.
Mario face on the hair. This kid’s going to be the king of the neighborhood with Mario on his head. Granted it will only last a few days, but the skill with the haircut and the legend would stay.
German sculptor and illustrator Tobias Wüstefeld has crafted Super Mario levels atop animals skulls. The sculpted levels also feature characters and surroundings from the game, showing tiny Mario, Goombas, Koopas, a mushroom and the fireflower. It’s great to imagine the idea of sculpted Super Mario Bros levels, but seeing they’re carved on animal skulls kind of makes the entire thing a bit uncomfortable. Of course we’ve seen several sculptures or ideas that employ similar ideas, but this one just doesn’t feel right.
Tariq, the lead singer of The Roots made a showing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. It just so happened that Super Mario’s theme song got a touch of rap from the singer. Check it out.
