After a short comic surmising the Royal Crown’s effect on another character in the Mario franchise, a new star was born—Bowsette, the horned and busty female-bodied version of Bowser. Twitter, being full of thirsty humans, latched onto this idea like a Chain Chomp, and fanart, cosplays, and comics exploded forth. And a lot of it is very good, buuut, Rule 34 being what it is, searching the tags #Bowsette or #クッパ姫 (Koopa-hime, Princess Koopa) can be a game of NC-17 Russian Roulette. So for those who are thirsty but reading this at work, I have provided some of my favorite SFW takes on the lizard princess who gives no fucks.
Tukudani01’s take says “Waga hai!”
volittas_art’s Bowsette is doing what Bowsette does best: kidnapping Peach.

VinnyLikesBeads did a pixel art take on both blonde (Peach-influenced) and redheaded (Bowser-influenced) Bowsette.
Been thinking of making a #Bowsette sprite so I can do a Perler bead version of it. Here's my initial version using Peach's sprite from Mario Maker as a reference. Left is without shell and tail, right is with. pic.twitter.com/6gG6eSRiKi

Ikiruse’s Bowsette really taps into the lizard barbarian aesthetic, I think.
AngryangryD reminds me of every fantasy anime I ever marathoned in college.

AmuseFactory brought Bowsette to life in 3D via balloons!
kekeflipnote gives Bowsette a proper magical girl transformation, complete with Mario theme music.
Revolocities reverses direction by putting Peach in a Koopa shell (and then having Bowsette sweep him off his feet).
