When my son was 3 years old he was very into Mario & Luigi. So he wanted to be Mario for Halloween. So I went on the hunt to create a homemade Mario for him. Then he told us he wanted his dad to be Luigi cause he was the taller one.

:-) This year there was no premade Mario & Luigis, so we created our own homemade Mario and Luigi costume.

Mario: Found a pair of overalls at a thrift store in his size. He already owned a red long sleeve shirt. Bought a pair of red sneakers from WalMart. Got white gloves from the Dollar Store. Purchased his hat from our local Embroidery shop in the mall. Who also embroidered the M on it for us.

Luigi: Bought a pair of overalls in my husbands size from WalMart.com. Bought the green long sleeve shirt from a thrift store. My husband wore white sneakers. Gloves from Dollar Store. Purchased his hat from our local Embroidery shop in the mall. Who also embroidered the L on it for us.

The most pricey item in the whole thing was my husbands overalls.

Overall the price of the 2 costumes was $36.00
