Highjacking top comment.

It's-a-me! This is me and my friend (I'm Mario). We were still walking around the con floor when people started to stop us and tell us that we were on the front page of Reddit. Thanks for the love on the costumes!

Crazy job on the cosplay. I'd love to see more detailed photos!

149 points · 5 months ago

Agreed...a close up of some of the accessories would be much appreciated. It looks like you've put some work into it, and I'd love to be able to admire some of the craftsmanship!

A post apocalyptic yoshi would be a great addition!!

Deathclaw Yoshi would be awesome. And super mutant Bowser while I'm thinking about it.

I was literally thinking about that. Tho I’m thinking a mirelurk goomba would be neat as well

Do you want the goombas from the Mario Bros movie? 'cuz that's how you get the goombas from the Mario Bros movie.

best movie ever made.

Ah. Well thankfully only someone with a huge dick can pull off a cosplay like that. You more than make up for it.

No no, the huge dick got kicked out of PAX.

Can I ask what you do with all the cosplay costumes and props when they're not being used anymore?

Store them in bins or hang them up. I haven't retired any costumes yet.

Just wanted to give you props. You and your buddy did a fantastic job.

Thank You!

looks like they already got all the props they need, and then some. you're very generous for offering, though!

It looks fake to me, but I've certainly met people with fabulous facial hair like that, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It has to be fake right? As someone who’s “mustache” consists of 15 disgustingly thin hairs, I refuse to believe it’s real.

If you've never been to San Antonio, then let me tell you that there is a good possibility that it is real lol.

Not quite the right terminology.

If I know anything about Cosplay, it is precisely the right terminology.

Gotta love crossplay cosplay crossovers!

268 points · 5 months ago

Unless those are two chicks—and I don't think they are—not quite. The more apt term would be cosplay crossover.

edit: also, I think I just wooshed on the joke in your comment (right?) bad :(

Haha, yeah, a little bit of whoosh there. It's okay, happens to everybody.

Always. Self-correction is the most valuable skill an adult can have.

except maybe self-powered flight. That would be kickass.

Laser eyes suck! You are pretty much guaranteed to melt some poor girl's bra to her chest before you figure out how to control it.

It was amazing to talk to them. Contrary to how they look, one of them was actually seeming somewhat timid and shy but that’s pretty expected considering I was a rando at a convention with thousands of people.

Were you dressed as Rando Calrissian or as Marlon Rando?

He cross-played as both!

Luigi’s shoes threw me off, everything else is dirty and used but then the converse are just clean and sticking out

Fallout Mario here, he actually forgot to bring his regular shoes for the costume so he had to go with what he had.

This is really great. If you do it again you've got to make a pipe pistol, that's all it's missing.

The attention to detail is insane, the Game “Pip” Boy is a nice touch

Proof that the Mario Universe could take on Fallout and probably win, IF Nintendo wanted it to be.

I'm not for platformers or adventures so the current Switch games have no appeal to me. But this, a Mario FPS apocalypse, made with the quality of BOTW, I'd buy a $400 console for that.

23 points · 5 months ago

It really is a shame Nintendo shies away from more mature games so much, they could make some greats.

As much as i agree with you, Nintendo's goal is to make games that an audience of any age could enjoy, so i don't think that will ever happen unfortunately

If the idea were presented in a less depressing universe, it probably wouldn't be as impossible as it seems. I mean, with the Rabbids game having happened, they certainly haven't closed their doors on the idea of first party IPs being used for such things. Even the Zelda games always dance around the idea that mass populations are murdered, it's just never/rarely explicitly focused on with the story. Majora's Mask obviously being the easiest one to refer to.

I could see them really pulling off mature games with a lighthearted tone. I mean, take this post, a Mario Themed Fallout wasteland universe would be both fun and goofy yet dark and mature. I think as long as they shy away from sex, drugs, graphic depictions of death and morally conflicting themes it could work for a broad audience.

I'm glad you enjoyed the cosplay! If you are there tomorrow I will be walking around as Solaire from Dark Souls. I'll have a bonfire with me so you should be able to tell me apart from any other Solaire. If you see me be sure to say hi!

Would his pip boy be Gameboy then? Or a Toad boy? Hmmmm

If you look closely, you'll notice that it actually does say GAMEBOY on it.

I need this in Super Mario Odyssey - Fallout Kingdom DLC

I love how his pip-boy is actually a game-boy.

Pipboy looks like gamepipboy

That would be the way to do it. Just strap an OG gameboy on the wrist.

Literally the only thing that I would have added would be knee pads. Their legs are just a bit too bare.

Anyone else think of the Mario Bros. movie?
