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 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.

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.
