Mario Brothers Costume
Everybody remembers and loves playing Mario Brothers as kids! This halloween how about a Mario Brothers Costume!? Mario Bros. was of course an arcade game from the 80s – so this will go well with any other friends that you have also dressing up in a 1980s costume (like Donkey Kong!). To dress up as a Mario Brothers character for halloween, the first thing you’ll need to do is decide who you want to be – then from there you’ll have your Mario Bros costume! This is also a great choice for both adults and kids!!
Mario was a plumber in the popular 1980s Nintendo game. His job was to defeat all kinds of creatures that were emerging from New York’s sewers. A mario outfit for halloween is therefore very simple – it’s basically just a plumber costume. The key features of the clothing include 1. Blue Overalls, 2. a red shirt 3. a red cap (be sure the red cap has an “M” on the front! Not sure what type of hat to use? No problem! All you have to do is get a red baseball cap and white and red construction paper – just cut a white circle from the construction paper, then a red M…glue or tape them onto the front of your cap and you have a Red Mario Cap instantly! and 4. the “mario moustache”! For a next extra effect, you’ll want to add a little bit of paunch to Mario’s stomach area – he is after all Italian and loves to eat – probably pasta!!
What makes Mario – Mario is his very thick very black moustache!! No halloween costume would be complete without this accessory – he is after all Italian! If you cannot grow one yourself, you can buy this hairpiece for your face at any halloween store. Most just stick right onto your upper lip!
If you want to be Luigi for Halloween, it is just as easy to find something to wear! Luigi’s clothing is very similar to Mario’s – blue overalls, and a thick black moustache. Instead of red however, Luigi’s clothing color should be green. You should therefore have a long sleeved green shirt and a green cap for this outfit! Be sure the green cap has a large “L” on the front! This is practically the only distinguishing feature between Mario and Luigi. This also a great choice for kids – what is more fun than seeing a kid in a moustache!?
Be Princess Peach
Anyone can be a princess for halloween, so why not be a very specific princess – Princess Peach! Princess Peach is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom in the Nintendo video game. Her halloween costume should include a long pink dress, blue earrings, long blonde hair, and of course a small circular crown to top off your head!
