Ice Climbers

Popo and Nana are a brother and sister that first appeared in the self-titled NES game Ice Climbers. Since then they’ve been largely out of use except for an appearance as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. And, according to rumor, a possible new Switch game.

The siblings dress alike, though Popo prefers blue and Nana prefers pink. Both wear parkas with matching pants and boots. They also carry large wooden mallets to help them in their adventures.

You can of course wear a parka for your costume. But since most conventions are indoors – and all that walking gets warm – you can recreate the look with a long hooded. No matter which you choose, however, you will need to add fake fur trim around the hood, hem, and sleeves.

In addition to your preferred top you will need leggings that match the color of your parka as well as a matching pair of boots and a mallet. Of course you wouldn’t wear leggings to actually climb a mountain. But for the sake of comfort while cosplaying, they’re your best bet here!

7 Grand Dad

7 Grand Dad is an infamous bootleg NES game based on a pirated version of The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy, marketed in Russia as Super Mario 7. Due to the absurd nature of the game, it became a running joke on Vinesauce Joel streams, and later SilvaGunner videos.

Doc Louis

Jerome “Doc” Louis is an ex-heavyweight boxing champion and Little Mac’s coach in the Nintendo game series Punch-Out!!!. He is also an infamous YouTube Poop meme using a clip of him training Little Mac on a bike and making it look like he is stealing Mac’s bike.

Dr. Mario

Dr. Mario is a variation of Mario that appears in the Dr. Mario puzzle games as well as a playable character in Super Smash Bros Melee and Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. If you want to make a more accurate version of his iconic pill weapon, this guide shows a quick and easy way to do so with household items. White cloth optional for his Smash Bros Cape attack.

Mega Man

Mega Man is a pretty cool dude. Before he was Mega Man he was originally known as Rock, a lab assistant. After volunteering to be transformed into a fighting robot, he set out on a mission to battle the mad scientist, Dr. Wily and stop him from taking over the planet.

Fred Savage in The Wizard

Fred Savage as Corey Woods co-stars with Rilo Kiley in The Wizard, a 100-minute Nintendo commercial for Super Mario Bros 3 and the Power Glove. I love this outfit. It’s so bad.
