Mach Rider

In the year 2112, planet Earth is overrun by the evil Quadrunners. It’s up to Mach Rider to travel from sector to sector on his superbike, destroying these enemies and searching for survivors in this Nintendo Entertainment System game from 1985. A more affordable option for the shoulder armor is to form red EVA foam into the right shape.

Brittany from Pikmin 3

Brittany is one of the three playable characters in the Nintendo video game Pikmin 3. She works as the botanist for the crew and records notes about the fruits found on PNF-404. Her home planet is Koppai. While strong-willed, Brittany overindulges in juice, often taking more than her fair share. Craft an antenna headband and apply pink blush to complete this look.

While on vacation from his home planet of Hocotate, Olimar crash lands on a foreign planet where he finds small creatures he dubs Pikmin who help him as he learns to navigate the new terrain.

Mr. Resetti from Animal Crossing

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 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!
