The Bowsette fad may have died down, but Nintendo seems determined to bring it back.
Now that New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is out, Nintendo has been advertising it, and the latest promotional push is an arts and crafts project. Kids can go to Nintendo’s website to download, print out, and color their own Super Crown, the headpiece that turns Toadette into Peachette.
Of course, fans have their own interpretation of the Super Crown, which exploded with popularity in late 2018 when one fan got the idea of the crown turning Bowser into “Bowsette.” The outpouring of monster girl Bowser fanart (and other Nintendo characters turned into princesses) took over most of the internet for a few days. Nintendo’s Super Crown arts and crafts project missed the boat to ride that wave of popularity, but there are probably still a few fans out there who want to make their own crown for… various reasons.
The arts and crafts project can be downloaded from Nintendo’s activities site.
