This year my sons wanted to do a Mario themed Halloween - and of course my 4 year old had to Bowser Jr. I was able to buy the Mario costume for my 6 year old and the Princess Peach for me (my husband was a poor sport and wouldn’t be anything) but the Bowser Jr. costume was nowhere to be found. I am not good at sewing so this whole thing was made using hot glue. It held together really well - through class parties, Halloween night, and the many wrestling matches since.

The red hair and eyebrows is made from giant pip cleaners so they are really easy to mold. The spikes were the most time consuming thing to make - I bought a bunch of multicolored sponges from the dollar store and then cut them into the right shape and then painted them. I would recommend buying white sponges and not painting though as the paint cracked when my sons were battling for Princess Peach (me). The yellow body suit was something I found at the thrift store - I think it was once a Pikachu costume (he wore it backwards and we cut off the arms and legs). The ‘shell’ is a little backpack covered in green felt and surrounded by fabric ‘snow’. The bib was painted with craft paints and a Sharpie.

Basically Bowser Jr. is hot glue + felt = magic! The only problem with this costume was that people were stopping us all night to have a look at ‘Bowser Jr.’ or ‘That Spiky Shell Kid’ as most of the moms called him.

I enjoyed the Bowser Jr. costume you made for your son! If nothing else pops in my head next year for Halloween, I think I'll be Bowser Jr. next year for Halloween.

My 6 yr old son is obsessed with Bowser jr and this Halloween he chose a Homemade Bowser Jr. Costume. After days and days of searching the internet trying to find a Bowser jr costume to buy and finding none for sale I finally came to terms that it had to be made. I'm not very good at sewing so I asked an aunt of mine who sews very well if she could help me out.

I found a dinosaur pattern and we pretty much took it from there. A lot of it was hand sewn and she spent many restless nights sewing and creating this costume! She did an amazing job! The turtle shell stays on with Velcro and she hand sewed the cuffs and the claws on the hands and feet. The most creative I think is the hat. She also had the hardest time with it but it all came out looking great! He loves it by the way!!

My son is 7 years old and loves loves loves Bowser, so here we go, he wanted a Bowser Costume for Halloween this year. I don't know if anyone has searched for a Bowser kids costume, but they are not to be found in stores, PLUS, making costumes is so much more fun anyway. I really enjoyed making this. I will be sad the day he doesn't want homemade costumes anymore.

I used a lot of stuff around the house to make it. A baseball helmet for the head, green duct tape, craft foam, and lots of other stuff that I found at my local craft store. His dad was Mario and I was Peach (all homemade of course)!

I will post more photos later. Thanks

Coolest Homemade Bowser Costume 40

Homemade Bowser Costume

Homemade Bowser Costume

My son, who is six years old, loves Mario. Last year he was Mario, so this year he had to be Bowser. I made this Bowser costume myself.

I was so happy to see that people knew who he was when trick or treating. He enjoyed it also and would give them a big roar and pose in a fighting stance, fist up and ready to go.

The costume really did not take much time to make and I did a lot of it by hand. My son loved helping with the preparation and loved trying on his costume every time I did added something to it. He loves wearing the hat around the house and while playing his video games.

by: Gina M.

That is sooo neat! I am not that crafty. When he is done wearing it I would purchase it from you. My son is 5 and he wanted to be Bowser for Halloween and I can't find a costume anywhere! He said, "Well, maybe next year mom." Let me know if you want to sell it when your son outgrows it. He would be super excited as he is a huge Mario fan!

Coolest Bowser Jr. Halloween Costume

by Vanessa
(Santa Clara, CA, USA)

Homemade Bowser Jr. Halloween Costume

Homemade Bowser Jr. Halloween Costume

Our son always plays this one baseball game on the Nintendo Wii; Mario Super Sluggers. He especially loves Bowser Jr. At first, he wanted his dad to make a bandanna that has a big mouth with teeth. As it got closer to Halloween, he wanted to be Bowser Jr. for the upcoming holiday. My husband made the costume using yards of different fabric, pillow stuffing, Styrofoam plates, a glue gun, Velcro to hold the shell, and a simple sewing kit. He also used orange yarn for the hair.

Awesome costume
by: Mel

We were totally inspired by this costume last year, and decided to make our own. A bit difficult, but I'm not crafty in any way. We made the bandana out of an iron on print out. We downloaded a large print from the Internet and used iron on printer paper from Michaels. That was the easiest part.

the comment down there is hilarious
by: Anonymous

Come on folks....really. After reading the story about this costume, some of you really think that they would sell it? Seriously? Like they would take it from their kid "who loves it so much" to give to your kid "who loves it so much", come on people this is America. Very cute and creative though. Your husband did a great job, I know as a mom Id be ticked that dad got credit for that one!

Bowser JR. Costume
by: Vanessa...

^^
We were trying to find yellow sweats... but wasn't successful.. so.... we measured his pants, and basically, sewed yellow fleece together, and did the same for the top...

As for the shell... we used green velvet material from the local fabric store. My husband cut the green velvet into two big circles, and stapled/hot glued together, and inserted it with pillow stuffing... He hemmed the sides and used pillow stuffing into the white fleece, using a glue gun. I'm not sure how he figured out how to make the spikes on the back. I know he used styrofoam plates and cut them into triangles, and somehow he rolled them into cones. And then glued the white felt over the cones. He, then, glued it to shell. Next, he hot glued the orange trim over the cones.

We then used long strips of Velcro to the back, and the inside of the shell... (Make sure you use enough Velcro to hold the weight of the shell on the back. I carried safety pins just in case there was a wardrobe malfunction). =)

For Bowser JR.'s face... we used a construction safety hat...or just use a baseball hat... Again, he glued the green velvet over the hat, and then used orange yarn for the hair... We did three sections and just glued it to the hat... Then use white fleece, and stuffed it to make the cheeks and snout. Then cut out eyes from black and white felt paper. Same for the orange eyebrows.

For the bandanna, my husband cut a sleeve from his white shirt, and drew the mouth onto the sleeve.

Hope this helps. =)

Great job!
