Wario from WarioWare

Wario is the main antagonist to Mario and the star of his own spin-off games called WarioWare. These games involve microgames that the player must complete in order to preserve their lives. Additionally these games often have a theme associated with the title and characters. Use a piece of red duct tape down the middle of the helmet. For added detail, you can paint a ‘W’ with light blue paint. If you want to go extra mile, you can paint the nose pink and even get a cleft chin prosthetic.

Medli from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Medli is a young, kindhearted Rito (bird person) living on Dragon Roost Island. She befriends Link on his oft-sidetracked quest to rescue his little sister during the events of The Wind Waker, and assists him in her capacity as the apprentice caretaker of Valoo the dragon. When I first saw this character while playing The Wind Waker for the first time, I immediately fell in love with her cute aesthetic and kindhearted nature. Naturally, I had to recreate her costume!

Gulliver from Animal Crossings New Horizons

Gulliver from Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Gulliver is the hapless castaway that sometimes appears on the shores of your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He has a tendency to fall asleep on the deck of his ship and roll overboard. When you fin him you have to help collect the pieces of his communicator so he can call his crew for a pick-up.

Dressing as Gulliver is a little tricky given that he’s a bird. White pants and white gloves help give you the appearance of all-over white feathers. You can add white wings or use a white shawl to mimic Gulliver’s wings depending on your preference. Yellow duck feet give you the webbed look of Gulliver but you can also use yellow rain boots for a more human look. Similarly, you can use a false bill or leave it off.

To really capture Gulliver’s look though you need a sailor’s cap and shirt. A few pieces of circuitry make for a great accessory to finish off the costume.

Harvey from Animal Crossings New Horizons

Harvey from Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In Animal Crossing: New Horizon, Harvey is the kind old hippie that lives on a nearby island. He runs a photo studio that is open for anyone to use and loves to have people come visit him to do their own shoots.

To cosplay as Harvey you’ll want to practice a laid back and slightly hazy way of doing things. That’s the real key to being Harvey. For his costume, though, you’ll want a a long wig and a mustache. The hair simulates Harvey’s ears, though can choose to add some costume dog ears as well if you want. A brown vest with fringe, a tunic top, bell bottoms, and moccasins finish out his look. And while these accessories aren’t necessary, a camera will really round out the look.

Kid Icarus Pit

Pit from Kid Icarus

Pit is the protagonist in the Kid Icarus video games. As indicated by his wings, he is an angel. His patron deity is Palutena, and he serves as the captain of her guard. He is known for his bubbly and chipper personality, though he has no problem battling monsters twice his size. For this costume, wrap the bed sheet around your body leaving a hole for your arm. Use a reference picture of the character to lay the garment correctly on your body. Secure the sheets in place by tying the brown scarf around your waist. If you want a less DIY approach, you can alter a white toga, listed in this guide for your convenience.

Bowser Jr. from Super Mario

Bowser Jr. from Super Mario

In the Super Mario Bros. series, Bowser Jr. is the only child of Bowser and an unknown mother. He’s not to be confused with the infant form of his father – Baby Bowser – or the Koopa Troopas. For most of the franchise he struggles to live up to his father’s expectations but every now and then a different side shows through. It’s what makes him such an interesting character.

For his cosplay you will want a yellow body suit and yellow Bowser feet, though you’ll want to seal the feet with a waterproof spray before wearing them to a convention. Black cuffs adorn either wrist which are easy to get in a variety of sizes.

His bib will take a bit of DIY however, especially in order to get one big enough for an adult. The easiest way is to get a large square of white fabric like the table cloth listed above, then fold and trim it down to the right size. From there you just need some fabric markers to copy over the snarling mouth on Bowser Jr.’s bib and your version is good to go!

His shell is easy to replicate with a shell backpack (always handy at a convention) and spikes you can add yourself. His hair is another spot where you will have to do some DIY. You can go for a bald cap and then make a top ponytail or you can put your own twist on it with something like the orange wig pictured above!
