One popular gaming character that many people like to dress up as for Halloween is Super Mario. He first appeared in the 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong and has since become one of the most recognizable characters in the video gaming world. You can even get your favorite princess involved by pairing up with Princess Peach. If you’re planning to dress up as Mario or Luigi this year, here are a few ideas for accompanying your costume.
How Do You Dress as the Super Mario Bros?
Another option is to create your own Super Mario costume using items you may already have around your house. For example, you could wear a red or green shirt and pair of jean overalls, find a matching hat, add some DIY details like red styrofoam balls for his Mushrooms power-up, and carry around a plastic Yoshi Egg as an accessory.

You’ll need a red baseball cap, some white felt, and a black Sharpie. Cut a white circle out of the felt, and glue or sew it onto the front of the hat. Use the Sharpie to draw Super Mario’s signature “M” on the front of the circle.
How to Make a Prop Mushroom Power Up?
