Mario Meets Michelangelo: La Piet Goes Geek

Based on Michelangelo’s famed sculpture, La Piet (which you can see after the jump), designer Kordian Lewandowski used a block of polystyrene foam to complete his very own work of art – the Nintendo-inspired Game Over sculpture. Measuring slightly taller than an averaged sized man (seems to be about six-feet tall), Game Over mixes the drama of Renaissance art with ...

1-Down Mushroom Could Just Ruin a Plumber’s Day

Even fictional plumber’s have nightmares. And if Mario does in fact dream, this is 1-Down Mushroom is surely the culprit that keeps him up at night. While he’s never actually seen one in the wild (or so he tells the cops), in fact their actual existence is questionable, his mother used to tell him that if he didn’t go to ...

Super Mario Bros. Yoshi Tongue Scarf

Yoshi is so considerate. Look at him lovingly using his tongue to wrap around your neck (who knows where that neck has been!) This crocheted Yoshi scarf is lovingly honed by Etsy user ShadowsInTheNyte. Usually used to suck down apples (and in the new game, even your fellow teammates), Yoshi’s most valuable appendage comes in handy on even the most ...

Meta Mario Drives Giant Version of Himself

I’m not sure where someone pulls an idea like this out of, but I’m sure it’s from some orifice on the bottom half of their body. Regardless of which cavity the idea was extracted from, I’m amazed at the absurdity and I really actually love it. This very meta Mech Mario is driven by a mini-version of himself. Or maybe ...

Super Mario Tote Bag

While I’ve been hesitant to display my love for plumbers ever since Joe the Plumber came along, there’s something about this Super Mario Tote Bag that seems completely harmless. Just a fun way to brandish my 8-bit pride. Not too mention it would go great with my awesomely sexy and manly Jedi Mario tattoo. Flickr user renatahashimoto says that if ...

Super Mario Suits That Never Existed (But Should Have)

I’ve been content long enough. No longer will the propeller and penguin suits hold me over. I’m sorry Nintendo, there’s only so much I can take. CollegeHumor created an amazing assortment of Super Mario suits that never found a spot into the plumber’s wardrobe, but most certainly should have if Nintendo have had the balls to create some of these. ...

Yoshi Macbook Decal Desperately Wants To Eat Your Apple

You know how Yoshi loves his apples. So it’s no surprise that he couldn’t resist such a shiny fruit as the Apple logo itself. This Yoshi Macbook decal is available from LapTatt, and it’s a great way to build-up even more geek cred, if you care about that sort of thing. Link [via]
