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.
