Coolest Homemade Yoshi Costume

I looked all over the internet and could not find any Yoshi costumes for my little boy to wear. We had decided to do a Mario Brothers theme for the whole family for Halloween and we were so excited about it that I knew I had to find a way to make a Yoshi costume for him.

First, I measured him from head to toe. I then went out and bought some thin green and white fleece. I made the body of the costume like a one-piece outfit and then I added a tail and stuffed it with some pillow stuffing. I made a hood and attached Yoshi’s face, stuffing where it was needed as I went.

Using orange fleece, I cut a zig-zag pattern to make the “spikes” going down his head and stitched them on. I sewed the hood onto the body at the back. I added a white zipper up the middle of the front. On the back I put a big red circle and put a bit of stuffing into it, not enough to make it fluffy, just to pump it up a little. I added a white ring around the red circle.

For the boots I just cut a very simple shoe cover pattern out of orange fleece and stitched it down the back.

  1. We are doing the same for Halloween this year. Can I buy it from you for our son? His birthday is in Oct and all he wants is a Yoshi costume. Yours looks a lot more like Yoshi than any of the other one i can purchase. If so please comment back. Thanks!

  2. Your costume is perfect! I was searching all over for a yoshi costume – although all of the costume stores had it listed on their sites, non of them have it in stock. You have inspired me to make it myself! Thankfully, I was able to order the yoshi plush hat off the internet, so I won’t have to make that!

    Good job!

  3. great job mom, my grandsons want to be this character this year. thanks for the idea. am getting the sewing machine out right now!

  4. Hello, I have tried looking everywhere for a yoshi costume. My son really wants to be yoshi for Halloween. Do you make and sell them? I would try and attempt it but I don’t have the best sewing skills, wish I did. Please let me know if you do make and sell them.

  5. Hi!

    I have looked everywhere for a great Yoshi costume for my 5 year old and they all look nothing like Yoshi.

    Do you sell Yoshi costumes? I cannot sew to save my life and this would be perfect for Halloween.

    Please email me if you sell, I will purchase immediately!
