When it comes to fan art in recent culture, creating alternative changes to famous characters is a huge trend. One of the important ones? Hipsters.
The series of portraits by Sam Milham depicts Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Bowser re-imagined as 100% human hipsters. Milham humorously captures a side of them that includes everything from suspenders, scarves, and smokes to mustaches, thick-rimmed glasses, and an SLR (presumably non-digital).
The effect isn’t just pictorial, either, as Milham has added hipster jokes in script above and below the figures. The artist is currently taking requests for more characters to re-invent through his Tumblr. Hopefully, Hipster Princess Peach won't be too far behind this set. Perhaps she'll even have her own typewriter and ironically eat an organic peach.
