Mario Costume DONE

My big boy wants to be Mario for Halloween this year, so for $2 this is what I came up with...

The hat was self-drafted and is a little obnoxious, but I think it's pretty close to the picture above.  Close enough for a 9 year-old, anyhow.  The overalls were $2 at the thrift shop and the felt I had in my stash. They have a Mickey Mouse embroidered where the 'M' patch is now.   Now I just need a moustache and he's set!
Would anyone be interested in a Mario hat pattern & tutorial?  How is your costume sewing coming along?  Now I have 3 Prairie Girl dresses, aprons & bonnets to make...

I love it! It's fabulous. Yes, if you are willing to share, I will make a green one for Luke. I think I'll copy your felt buttons, too.

It's soooooo cute! My son was Mario a couple years ago. I just loved making that costume. We just drew his mustache on with eyeliner. ha.

I'm so glad to hear you have three more costumes to go. I have 4... I was starting to feel like the only one waiting until the last minute. My youngest still hasn't even decided what to be....
