Today the Department of Awesome Anamorphic Artwork offers up a wonderfully geeky creation by street artists Leon Keer and Remko van Schaik on the campus of the EPLF technical institute in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The duo spent six days working on this amazing depiction of a girl playing a 3D version of Space Invaders in an aerial arcade. Look closely, that’s not just crazy vintage arcade carpet beneath her dangling feet. It’s the very distant ground. We were never much good at the game, but we’d still love to try playing a version like this.

When we asked Keer what he found most challenging about this particular project, he said, “It was creating the Space Invaders. To get the right geometrical shape of every Invader and in good proportion with the other Invaders took a lot of calculations and a good amount of concentration.

The painting measures 150 square meters (1600 square feet) and only makes sense when viewed from one particular side. If you happen to be in the neighborhood of Lausanne, this fantastic street painting will be view through April 10, 2014.

DevinSuperTramp filmed this awesome parkour video of Chris Romwell cosplaying as a character from the forthcoming Ubisoft video game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag while skillfully free-running throughout the recent 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. As you watch the video you may notice that, thanks to Comic-con being such an notoriously wild and bustling event, barely anyone even turns their head as this costumed figure runs, jumps, flips, and tumbles over and past them. For them it appears to be just another (completely awesome) day at Comic-con.

The fantastic Assasin’s Creed costume was made by Allison Dredge and Stephen Anderson wrote the music.

This awesome work of LEGO and gaming geekery is a 75” x 45” mosaic made of 10,511 LEGO bricks featuring a vast array (nearly 24 square feet) of characters from classic Nintendo and Sega arcade games.

This geektastic masterpiece was created by an artist in the UK named Franck Lahaye who has put his handiwork up for sale on Etsy, saying, “All profits will go toward my friend’s school project, she is raising money to send her class to Africa next year.”

Redditor Nasicournus spotted this awesome display of ground meat molded into the shapes of Cut Man and Mega Man at the Uwajimaya Asian supermarket right here in Seattle.
When a ground pork robot faces off against a ground beef robot, who will emerge victorious? We aren’t sure, but we’re guessing the leftovers will be delicious either way.

It’s Donkey Kong vs. M. C. Escher! The AweMeChannel recently shared this new stop-motion video of 3D artist Chris Carlson (previously featured here) methodically creating another awesome anamorphic chalk drawing.

This time Chris drew a mind-bending twist on the classic video game Donkey Kong. The hostile gorilla unleashes one of his dreaded barrels that ends up heading right for him thanks to M. C. Escher’s famous never-ending staircase, an optical illusion known as the Penrose Stairs, aka the impossible staircase.

Vinnie, who runs an Animal Crossing blog called It’s All About the Belljamins, tipped us off to this awesome work of Animal Crossing cosplay by aberrantkenosis, who reports, “My Brewster cosplay is coming along.”

It certainly is. aberrantkenosis used our Pigeon Mask to help create his wonderful Brewster costume. Brewster is a character from Nintendo’s ongoing series of Animal Crossing games:

"Brewster is a character who works in The Roost all hours of the day in the lower floor of the museum. He is a quiet, reserved pigeon with an interest in coffee. His name is a portmanteau of ‘rooster’ and ‘brew’.”

Between the anthropomorphism, that marvelous mustache, and his love of coffee, Brewster is a pigeon after our own hearts and a delightfully dapper work of cosplay.

Thank you Vinnie and bravo aberrantkenosis, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!

Behold the inflatable wonder that is Balloon Mario riding Balloon Yoshi. When is Nintendo going to make a Super Mario Bros. game that looks like this?
Remember that awesome Balloon Buzz Lightyear costume we posted about back in May? It was created and modeled by a gifted balloon-twisting artist name Jeff Wright. We just discovered that Jeff made this playful costume too. We are officially impressed.
The only thing missing is a balloon Koopa Troopa shell for Balloon Mario and Yoshi to kick around. That is, assuming Balloon Mario wouldn’t pop himself in the process.
