Bob Al-Greene from Mashable re-imagines classic Super Mario Brothers characters as modern day hipsters. In honor of the nostalgic Nintendo game’s 30th anniversary, these quirky images pay tribute to the arcade favorite.
The images feature the game’s most iconic characters -- Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Bowser. Each of the Super Mario Brothers characters is depicted with tattoos, colorful outfits and hipster characteristics such as Mario’s classic mustache. Mario, being the shortest of the characters, also boasts a muscular upper body that is decorated with tattoos which are related to the video game.
Additionally, Princess Peach has been transformed from a stout animated character to a long-legged college student with a mushroom backpack. She’s also clutching an iced coffee and her pure blonde hair is interrupted by an edgy pink highlight.
