Ashley from WarioWare

Ashley (most recently voice by Erica Lindbeck) is a witch-in-training that largely appears in the Wario games. She makes a few appearances in other Nintendo franchises like Super Smash Bros. but for the most part she is a character in Wario minigames. Her interests are almost solely related to becoming a better witch while her demon friend, Red, takes care of most everything else.

Cosplaying as Ashley is thankfully more straight-forward than her magic spells are! You need a long black wig that you style into pigtails. A little orange ha and an orange neck scarf with a skull brooch act as accessories while a red dress, black tights, and red shoes make up the outfit. A little stuffed demon finishes off the costume as your very own Red!

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.

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!

Dr. Wright from SimCity

Dr. Wright

Dr. Wright made his first appearance in the SNES version of SimCity, guiding new players through a tutorial and giving advice. His design is based on SimCity creator Will Wright, and subsequently makes appearances in Super Smash Bros as a trophy that makes building towers grow from below.

Fawful from Mario & Luigi

Fawful

In the Mario & Luigi series, Fawful is one of the main antagonists. He’s a mechanical genius with anger issues and poor Engrish. Lord Fawful shows little concern for anyone outside of Cackletta, for whom he shows blind devotion. For this costume, you can cut a small hole in the top of the mask to let a wisp of your hair out, and paint on his massive chompers.

Pokemon Trainer (Leaf Variation) from Super Smash Bros Ultimate
