My son expects a hand made costume made by “yours truly” each year. He does not want to wear a store bought costume since he knows “mom can make him ANYTHING”. This greatest homemade Mario Bros Bowser costume took me about 40 hours to make. I used a skate helmet for the head piece and all materials used were purchased at Michael’s and or JoAnn fabrics.
I used craft glue, a hand needle and thread, a sewing machine, pillow stuffing, foam balls and a foam ring to shape the face, spray paint and a lot of creativity! After making this costume, I understand why it has not been mass produced. It took me about 40 hours to make, about $200 for the materials and I made this while on crutches, yes on crutches.
I could not let my little boy down. He was the talk of his school and he was a complete show stopper while trick or treating. It is the coolest Bowser costume I have seen online or anywhere!
