Who doesn’t love Mario?

This is my husband and I and our son. This homemade Mario, Peach and Toad family costume was pretty easy to make.

Mario - I bought navy blue pajama pants for the overalls. I bought two and cut up the other one to make the bib of the overalls but you could use blue felt or something. I just cut out two strips for the overall straps and just tucked them into his pants instead of sewing it. I used yellow felt for the ‘buttons’. I got the red shirt from a second-hand store.

I hot glued 3 pieces of red felt to a baseball cap. Glued one piece to the brim. Glued the edge of a second piece around the edge of the front of the cap with the excess going upwards and the third piece around the back of the hat. Then I gathered and folded the excess red felt around the top of the cap and pinned it down so it was a little poofy in the front. The “M” is made from paper and glued on.

Peach - I got the dress from a second-hand store and sewed extra fabric at the bottom. I painted designs on the front with pink nail polish since it used to have “B” on it from when I was Barbie years ago. The jewel on the front and crown are foam glitter stickers from a craft store. The crown is made from yellow card stock.

Toad - I just had him wear a diaper and brown sandals. The vest was basically just a piece of blue cloth with holes cut for the arms. I didn’t even hem it! The hat was made from a foam ball. I cut it in half and scraped out the middle for his head. I painted white and red on it and hot glued an elastic strap inside to keep it on his head.
