Mr. Resetti from Animal Crossing

Most Animal Crossing players have come across the old temptation. The temptation to reset their island. It’s a lot of progress to make up and a lot of work to put in. But it might be worth it. If it weren’t for one little hiccup: Mr. Resetti. You can go ahead and reset your island if you want. As soon as he’s done lecturing you!

Dealing with Mr. Resetti might be hard but his cosplay isn’t! You need a mining hat and costume pickaxe, naturally. And black pace paint for the whiskers is a must.

Bowser from Super Mario Bros.

Bowser is the head honcho, the King Koopa, the guy who keeps stealing Mario’s princess and putting her in another castle. He’s had thirteen voice actors over the years in two languages alone. And that’s not even going into his live action appearances. He’s mean, he’s nasty, and he’s always ready to take on Mario!

The easiest way to get a King’s look is to start with the base costume set pictured above. It will give you Bowser’s body design and is a great jumping-off point. The costume does come with an inflatable shell but it’s very small. A larger one is also listed here for those who want to upgrade. A pair of yellow clawed slippers finishes off the clothing while face paint in either yellow or pink can help your face blend in a little more with the Bowser mask.

Frita from Animal Crossing

Frita from Animal Crossing

Frita is one of several sisterly villagers that might take up residence on your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With a love for good food and K.K.’s Rockabilly music, she’s lively and fun. Don’t push it, though! She’s tough under all that wool!

One option with a character like Frita is to go all-in to get the same sheep-like look. In this case, however, we’re going for a version that blends human features with Frita’s most memorable traits. This includes her horns, her hotdog-style shirt, and a yellow ruffle skirt to imitate the wool ruff under her shirt.

You’ll have to do a little DIY and paint the hot dog design onto a shirt using soft touch fabric paint. And also have to paint the red and yellow bands on a set of horns, then cover the black base with green ribbon to mimic the green in Frita’s fur.

Aside from that, however, all you’ll need to complete the look is a pair of brown leggings, yellow ballet flats, yellow nail polish, and a yellow ruffled scarf to finish off the costume!

Audie from Animal Crossing New Horizons

Audie from Animal Crossing

Audie is a bright, bubbly wolf villager. With bright orange fur and cream colored hands and feet she’s often mistaken for a fox but don’t let her fool you! She’s right at home with the other wolf villagers. And the peppy. And the sporty.

Her bright personality comes through in her clothing. A pineapple-print dress, orange tights, and cream colored shoes mimic most of her look while sunglasses, fox ears, and an orange wig give you the same vibrant look Audi has. Just don’t forget your Surprised reaction when talking with friends. It’s one of Audi’s favorites!

Muffy from Animal Crossing

Muffy from Animal Crossing

Muffy may not look like the friendliest islander. But look van be very deceiving. She is classified as a “sisterly” villager and she certainly lives up to the title. Her elegant style and welcoming personality make her a delight on just about any island. And with a little DIY you’ll have a Muffy costume perfect for an island – or convention – of your own!

Using purple and light pink paint, add stripes to a set of basic ram horns. Then use the lace panels listed here as the decorative headband that Muffy wears between her horns. Once the horns are ready you only need a few pieces to complete your costume.

A black wig, purple top, black belt, and black skirt make up the bulk of Muffy’s outfit. You can wear the skirt under the top and then add the belt. Or you can leave the belt off entire and tuck the shirt into the high waist of the skirt. Either option works for Muffy’s style!

White leggings (with a pocket for convention convenience) and black ballet flats round out the rest of her look. And finally you can accessorize with some black nail polish to finish off the costume!

Captain Falcon from F-Zero

Captain Falcon is an F-Zero racer and intergalactic bounty hunter in the F-Zero anime and gaming series.  Captain Falcon is a muscular man who dons several versions of his iconic uniform throughout the evolution of the F-Zero game series, though all of them include similar attributes.  To recreate Captain Falcon’s look, you’ll need yellow boots and gloves, a dark blue bodysuit, and a red helmet.

Wendy from Animal Crossing

Wendy from Animal Crossing

Some villagers like to work out. Others like to play music. Wendy likes four things: DIY, MagLev Mike, chasing her dreams of pop stardom, and – of course – her friends. She loves sharing good news with other people on the island and spends most of her time socializing with her neighbors. Her personality is as playful as her style and it shows!

Setting up a Wendy costume requires a little bit of DIY. You’ll have to paint the horns in stripes of marigold yellow spaced out with pale yellow. Then you’ll want to wrap the headband in blue ribbon so it blends in better with the blue wig that mimics the wool on top of Wendy’s head.

A watermelon-print blouse, a blue ruffle skirt, brown leggings, and brown ballet flats finish the look. You can accessorize with a hammer from your DIY bench or – if you’re feeling the urge to chance Wendy’s dreams – a microphone so you’re always ready for your big popstar-slash-fashion designer break!

Paula from Animal Crossing

Paula from Animal Crossing

Sporty and caring, Paula is a delight on every island. She’s the sisterly type, always willing to lend a hand and step up if someone’s bothering you. And you know she’ll be around. With her love of sports and the outdoors, she’s all over the island!

You could get Paula’s look by springing for a bear suit and then adding the clothes on top. But for the sake of comfort – and nailing Paula’s adorable style – this costume is a blend of human and bear.

The first thing you’ll need is a pair of bear ears. Clip those into a blonde wig and you’ve got a good start. Then take white fabric paint and copy the script on Paula’s shirt. When it’s dry layer it over a blue camisole and brown leggings. Add on some tan shoes and a brow band in white and black stripes and you’re ready to do laps across the beaches! Just don’t scare off all the fish.

Raymond from Animal Crossing

Raymond is a character in the video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He is a smug cat villager, whose name means “advice” or “council giver.” He gets along with most other villagers, but he comes across as snooty and egotistical. As indicated by his business attire, Raymond is rather strict, and prefers neatness and precision. These qualities are exemplified in Pocket Camp, where he later appears. In addition, he has the nature hobby.

Ice Climbers from Nintendo

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!
