KodyKoala‘s been on a roll lately. It seems like he’s churning out a custom figure every week, from anatomy statues to robot dinosaurs to zombie dinosaurs. Now he’s finally come around to making an action figure worthy of the other super Mario brother:
Nintendo just revealed this awesome Super Mario Bros. cake during the game’s 25th anniversary celebration in New York. I can say that this is the perfect way to celebrate all those years of playing Mario games in their different incarnations over the years.
The cake is based upon World 8 from the original game.
Arcosur, a Spanish neighborhood currently in development, is now the proud home of Avenida de Super Mario Bros. (Super Mario Bros. Avenue). Mario himself visited Arcosur, and danced to a violin and cello rendition of the Super Mario Bros.
Got 980 spare plastic soda bottle caps lying around? Why not do what this guy did and create some retro game art with ’em?
Over a period of 6 months, Instructables member skeplin gathered up a whole crapload of caps and made himself a giant Princess Peach mosaic with all of them.
It turns out that our little Super Mario is celebrating his 25th birthday this week. How cool is that? Do you remember the first time you played a Mario game? My first time was with the original Super Mario Bros.
Well here’s a different way to play Super Mario Bros 2… with your eyeballs.

In a war between snowboarding and old school video games, my bet will always be on the video games. There’s just no two ways about it. Lasers will destroy snowboards and skateboards, no matter how cool you try to look.

You know you’re onto something when people are making parodies of your work. Granted, that something can either be awesome or despicable, but in this case Jay Pavlina, I think it’s safe to say that your work is awesome, and that you have officially arrived.
Sit back, relax and crank up the volume for these awesome clips video game music and sound effects played on violin by artist Teppei Okada.
Okada’s musical timing is so impeccable that I only wish these had been the soundtracks to the original games.
Created by Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art, this Mario cake looks like it took quite a bit of time to put together, and you could only eat his body. From what I can tell, his head is made out of foam, covered with fondant.
Now you’re probably are saying to yourself, why would I ever dress up my dog like a character from Super Mario Bros.? And I’ll tell you that you need to do it so your furry friend can be just as humiliated as you are when you have to pick up his poop.
These ridiculous Nintendo-inspired dog costumes come to us courtesy of YoungUrbanPuppy, and are available in Mario, Princess Peach and Luigi varieties.
Why not get a few of your doggie pals together and you can simulate actual gameplay – except this time, with wiener dogs.
And if you are a Nintendo fan, but would rather not go with the goofy Super Mario Bros.
