Toadette from Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Toadette is a recurring Toad character from the Super Mario Bros. franchise.  She is one of the playable characters in Super Mario Bros. Wonder alongside Mario, Luigi, and others.  Unlike other Toads, Toadette’s color scheme is almost entirely pink.  Her outfit consists of brown shoes, white pants, and a pink dress layered beneath a red and gold vest.  When deciding how to create your Toadette hat, you may want to purchase a pre-made crochet version.  Otherwise, you can use a pink mushroom beret and then add your own pom-poms by running a string of thread from the brim of your hat and through the pom-poms before tying it off at the end.

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.

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.
