Who is Bowsette? Awesome Bowsette Fan-Art and Cosplay

What would happen if Bowser could harness the power of mythical Super Crown? Could the Mushroom Kingdom’s biggest baddie take on a brand new look? Introducing…  Bowsette!

Who is Bowsette?

The unofficial character was created by artist haniwa (ayyk92) in response to the new Super Crown item, where Bowser transforms into a genderbend version. Bowsette has taken the gaming scene by storm, with incredible paintings, sketches, game mods and cosplays in tribute. Bowser’s finally taken the spotlight in the Mushroom Kingdom!

So what’s with the Super Crown?

It all started with a new item in Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, the Super Crown. Oddly, Princess Peach isn’t playable in the game, but if Toadette grabs the Super Crown, she’ll transform into a new character called Peachette! What happens if another character stumbled on the mysterious headgear… could they also harness the power of the Mushroom Kingdom ruler? Fans have crossed over Chain Chomp, Waluigi, Petey Piranha and much more, but the two that conquered the world of fan-art and cosplay were Princess Boo (Booette) and, of course, Princess Bowser (Bowsette).
