Palutena from Kid Icarus

Palutena (voiced by Ali Hillis in the English version of Kid Icarus) is the goddess worshipped by Pit.  Also a playable character in Super Smash Bros., Palutena is the Goddess of Light and the true ruler of Angel Land.  She supports Pit on his quest.  Palutena has long green hair and is depicted in her most recent form wearing a flowing, strapless white dress.  In order to achieve a similar look, you can wear a white dress as your base (you may even want to take a pair of scissors to add the leg slit on the left side) and wrap a red and cream patterned shawl around your hip, fastened with a red brooch.  You’ll also want to pay careful attention to your gold accessories, including a crown worn over your green wig, plenty of gold cuffs on your arms, and a brown double-wrapped belt.  Lastly, a white sock on your left leg and a pair of tall gladiator sandals can complete your look.

Dahlia Hawthorne from Ace Attorney

Dahlia Hawthorne (voiced in Japanese by Rina Satō and in English by Dani Chambers) is one of the key characters in Phoenix Wright’s backstory, debuting in Turnabout Memories, the first episode of the third Ace Attorney video game, Trials and Tribulations.

She has a long string of plots and attempted/completed murders connected to the plans she’s tried to pull over the course of the past events of that case, including pretending to be Phoenix’s girlfriend in college, and causing mass amounts of misfortune to befall a large chunk of the cast at that time.

Dahlia likes to portray a more innocent act to make people believe her more in court and in general, and has a very soft appearance, with a gentle face.

She has straight auburn hair that falls to her mid-back, pulled into two styled braids at the top, grey-brown eyes with emphasized lashes, and she wears a white strappy summer dress with pink trim detailing, a sheer pink shawl, white chunky open toed heels with white butterflies on them, while carrying a domed white parasol with a pink sheer trim, and has white butterflies with pink wing tips flying around her in most of her sprites.

flint from earthbound

Flint from Mother 3

Flint is the lead protagonist in Mother 3.  The father of Lucas and Claus, Flint sets off on a mission to seek revenge for his wife’s death.  Flint’s costume is inspired by stereotypical cowboy attire, including a brown cowboy hat and red bandana.  To really take it to the next level, you can either grow an impressive mustache and mutton chops or purchase prosthetic ones.

Alph from Pikmin 3

Alph from Pikmin 3

Alph is the solid, sweet, dependable sort. The most loyal engineer any captain could ask for, he is also a great cosplay option for Nintendo fans.

A white shirt, a pair of white pants, and white shoes with blue soles make up the basis of Alph’s costume. Blue fabric paint adds the details to the top while complementing the blue gloves that Alph wears. Temporary blue hair dye gives you Alph’s hairstyle. To complete his look and get you an acrylic head bubble, check on YouTube for tutorials to affix a thick silver wire to the top of the bubble as well as tutorials to safely widen the neck holes if necessary. Then wrap the blue LED lights around the wire and glue the battery pack out of sight at the back of the bubble behind your head.

captain charlie from pikmin 3

Captain Charlie from Pikmin 3

Captain Charlie is one of the three playable characters in Pikmin 3, alongside Brittany and Alph.  Captain Charlie has a brown mohawk and thin mustache, and wears a white suit with green details and matching gloves.  Taking a little time with a pair of white coveralls and shoe covers can really help personalize the look.  Use some green paint to create the green panel at the front of his suit, and even add green to the soles of the shoe covers.  Don’t forget to add his yellow star badge.  If you don’t want to grow a mustache like Captain Charlie’s, a brown eyebrow pencil can achieve a similar effect.

Nabbit from Super Mario U Deluxe

Nabbit from Super Mario U Deluxe

Nabbit (voiced by Natsuka Yokoyama) is probably one of the best-named characters in the world of Mario. A rabbit who nabs things, Nabbit slips into Toad houses and makes off with their things, though his heavy bag usually gets in his way. He might not be the nicest guy but he’s still a fun playable character in certain games and he makes for a great costume.

Creating a Nabbit cosplay takes a little bit of DIY. The first step is to glue two white felt circles to the front edge of the hoodie’s hood, then gluing a black circle over the top of either white circle. The felt circles are self-adhesive but the fabric glue will ensure they won’t fall off. You can also use the fabric flue to adhere the rabbit ears to the top of the hood.

Next, use the fabric markers to make Nabbit’s mouth on the white bandana. After that it’s just a matter of putting all the pieces together! Just do yourself a favor and don’t try to act out Nabbit’s exploits. It’ll probably go even worse than it does for Nabbit.
