So here’s a bit of a different costume from me…a fashion Wario! I made this for Boston Comic Con 2015. It’s easily the simplest costume to date, but was very recognizable when worn. If you know how to sew a simple skirt then this costume is for you!

Skirt: Simplicity 1369 has always been my go-to skirt pattern. For Wario I wanted it to be extra poofy, so I added in two extra panels than what the pattern called for. I also made the waistband a bit thicker. The straps were sewn on after, and they cross in an “x” on the back.
Hat: Bought this hat on Amazon, and sewed on a white half circle. The “W” is attached using Heat N’ Bond.
Mushroom: Tutorial is coming soon!!

This costume could easily be replicate for Mario, Luigi, Waluigi or even Bowser with some creativity! Just change up the colors of the costume pieces. Wouldn’t that make a fun group halloween costume? ;)
I’ll be wearing this again for New York Comic Con on October 7. Is anyone else going?
