This year we decided on a Homemade Mario Kart Brothers Group Costume. It took a little work but it was worth it! We had, from left to right, Donkey Kong, Wario, Princess Peach, Luigi, Toad, Mario, Waluigi, Yoshi and the cloud. In order to make the karts we bought plastic bins and than cut out the bottom, spray painted them color of choice and cut four holes, 2 in the front and 2 in back.

We then used cardboard and spray painted them yellow for the headlights and than on the side of our carts we have wheels that are made out of cardboard as well and spray painted them dark grey. And what you can’t see is the license plates on the back of the kart made out of cardboard that we spray painted white and wrote on. For example, the princess peach license plate said “BE PEACHY” In order to make the straps we used twine and put them through the holes we made in the kart and crossed them in the back so they would stay on, it worked very well.

The Cloud is dressed in a blue shirt and white pants and she used a broom to attach her stop light that was made out of cardboard and spray painted with colors. The cloud material on her shirt is made out of the spider webs you can buy at the store and than clumped together. The toad spray painted a hard hat and bought red felt and cut circles of it to paste on the hat.

Mario made his overalls the purple color by tie dying them. Princess Peach is wearing her prom dress and, Luigi, Mario and Waluigi are all wearing overalls with the appropriate color underneath. They got mustaches and eyebrows to match their characters. Yoshi is wearing a costume he got online.

I am very happy with how it all turned out!
