I shot this picture inside the Nintendo World Store. It's a nice first image, right? But I actually wanted to order these with the museum first. It was right outside the store. Take a look...

This was the rear of the museum. Inside were TVs running footage from Mario game commercials, drawings and paintings of Mario, and lots of assorted Mario stuff.

This is the Luigi costume, along with a sweater even Bill Cosby might not wear.

The stands here displayed Mario lunchboxes, shampoo and other items.

And outside the museum, here I am at what would be the DJ station for the outdoor part of the event.

These pillows weren't protected from the downpour that arrived minutes after I snapped these photos.

Adjacent to the museum and DJ areas was the Nintendo World Store itself, decked out for the New Super Mario Bros. launch.

A second look at the windows. Shoppers inside could buy the new Wii game early.

Upstairs in the store, people could pose for photographs with these pillows.

The store sells a lot of Nintendo-themed items. I photographed a few Mario-related items, though not all are tied to the new game.

More merchandise.

And still more Mario-themed merchandise.

My favorite sign in the store.
