Maria Sisters: 'We'll Save You, Prince!' by kevinbolk Maria Sisters: 'We'll Save You, Prince!' by kevinbolk
Art inspired by a pair of really sweet cosplayers I met at Fan Expo 2013, Jill and Susann. They designed these fantastic gender-bent Mario and Peach outfits and I asked permission if I could do art based on them (as well as add a Luigi.) So here you are, folks..Maria, Louis Jean, and Prince Peach! Many thanks to Jill and Susann for inspiring this art and for being cool with me doing it.

Also, Jill and Susann are very talented artists here on dA as well. You can find them here :iconxshortstuff: and here :iconjadeapprentice:.

Nice! :D This is one of the few genderbends that actually pull it off. :)

Here's another version of Maria: tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…
I think the version on TV Tropes is older, but both characters have the same name & very similar outfits.

I love these designs! you drew them so adorably.

Yeah a lot of people draw Mario as a skinny anime barbie doll with a large chest, I mean yeah I can understand that kind of genderbending for some characters in other franchises, but Mario? I mean, girls can be chubby and cute at the same time, what's up with that?

Hopefully the clapping thing works as I've never used it before.
If it does, Great!
If not, then...that's okay.

Also, with the emoticons you're supposed to put a : on both ends. I tried it with clapping plz and it didn't work. For these you need to type in
: icon clappingplz : but without the spaces and you get :iconclappingplz:.

You're very welcome. :tiphat:

This reminds of a cartoon or something.... not sure what it was or if it was good.... The original costume idea was ingenious, though!

I for one would not mind playing a gender-swapped version of the classic game. I'm actually waiting for them to one for Zelda.
