Super Mario Alphabet

Yes, I've done another one. No, I don't see an end to these... :)

This time, I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite Nintendo franchises. I limited the characters only to those who have appeared in a game that directly featured Mario (so no Donkey Kong or Wario exclusives). I've posted the key below, along with each character's first appearance. Don't highlight the text if you don't want to know.

Prints, skins, iPhone cases, hoodies and shirts (available in dark colors!) can be found at http://society6.com/mbaboon/Super-Mario-Alphabet_Print

As Society6 doesn't offer kids' clothes, you can find these (along with stickers, shirts and other print options) over at Redbubble (http://www.redbubble.com/people/mbaboon/works/9042380-super-mario-alphabet?p=kids-clothes)

Depicted are: Ackpow (Super Paper Mario), Bowser (Super Mario Bros.), Cheep-Cheep (Super Mario Bros.), Donkey Kong (Donkey Kong), Professor E. Gadd (Luigi's Mansion), Freezie (Mario Bros.), Hammer Bro. (Super Mario Bros.), Iggy Koopa (Super Mario Bros. 3), Jibberjay (Super Mario Galaxy 2), Koopa Troopa (Super Mario Bros.), Luigi (Mario Bros.), Mario (Donkey Kong), Ninji (Super Mario Bros. 2), O'Chunks (Super Paper Mario), Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros.), Queen Bee (Super Mario Galaxy), Rosalina (Super Mario Galaxy), Shy Guy (Super Mario Bros. 2), Toad (Super Mario Bros.), Ukiki (Super Mario 64), Virus (Dr. Mario), Wario (Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins), X-Naut (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door), Yoshi (Super Mario World), Zip Toad (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door)

It's a World of Hellos and a World of Goodbyes

I found out about the It's a Small World T-shirt contest over at Threadless about 4 hours before the deadline. I wasn't going to enter but I had an idea I wanted to get out there.

The background: It's a world of "Hello"s and a world of "Goodbye"s with this fun and educational shirt inspired by the end of the "it's a small world" ride, where boaters are wished goodbye at the end of their voyage in several different languages. The front of the shirt welcomes others in many different languages while the back wishes a fond goodbye.



It was, admittedly, done in quite a rush. Still like it though. Hope you do too. Please vote at: http://atrium.threadless.com/smallworld/subs/#/submission/hello-goodbye-2/

Star Trek Alphabet

Everyone seemed to have a fun time guessing the Harry Potter characters in my Harry Potter alphabet before I posted a key, so I thought I would do the same here. Have fun! By the way, two of the letters are identified by their races, not their character names.  (EDIT: Key now available at the bottom of the post in white text).
