Fan Art: What To Wear?

Artist and gamer Glen Brogan created the picture above, a submission to Split Reason that may eventually become a t-shirt if it gets the votes. As you can see, after starring and guest starring in hundreds of games, Mario's wardrobe is getting a little stuffed. Maybe he should consider donating to the Brown Elephant? I hear they're always on the lookout for extra Tanooki suits. Now before you get all bent out of sorts because your favorite Mario costume is missing, Glen probably considered it, but had a few rules he decided to follow:

When my designs go up for voting I always get the inevitable complaints (you just can't make everybody happy) but I sort of feel like I'm throwing myself to the wolves with this one. The reason being that I had to come up with rules for what I should and shouldn't include as part of Mario's wardrobe. I wanted to include as many of his power-ups as possible, but the main rule I had to follow was that I couldn't include things that actually transform Mario himself rather that just changing his wardrobe, like the Boo mushroom from Mario Galaxy that turns him into a ghost. So I've mentally prepared myself for the barage of "OMG WHY DIDNT U INCLUDE THIS 1 ON THERE U R DUM." I don't mind constructive critisicm, but sometimes it feels like people complain just to do it. If only they knew how much thought I actually put into these!

What's all this about people complaining on the internet? The design is pretty awesome, and I would love it on a shirt, but really I want to know where I can get a pair of Mario's tighty-whities. Adorable! If you want to vote for the shirt, visit this link, and be sure to sign up to be notified when they actually start printing it. The link below takes you to Mr. Brogen's webpage/blog, where you can check out the rest of his work. Thanks to thepickupbear for the heads up.

If any of these end up at the Brown Elephant, I will be walking up my street and purchasing (no, I'd never consider ninjaing them--that'd just be wrong... right?) them for future costume parties.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
