Mario Kart Family Halloween Costume

If you know me, you most likely know that I’m super last minute with anything creative I do.  I seem to be one of those procrastinators that does well under pressure.  So, for that reason, I will be sewing or gluing things onto my kids Halloween costumes as they are walking out the door to Trick-Or-Treat.  Instead of showing you our well prepared costumes that don’t exist yet for this Halloween, I’ll just go ahead and share our costumes that I never got around to sharing last year!

The kids actually wanted to dress up with us last year!  For months, they were throwing out ideas that included all of us.  I know we won’t have too many Halloweens where they will want us involved in their Halloween business, so for now, I’m thrilled and will take full advantage of being that cheesey family.  It was the best Halloween by far and Bran and I had just as much fun as the kids!  Here are our Mario Kart Family Halloween Costumes from last year.

Some of these items we already had and we just pieced them together with what we purchased for the costumes.  Sure, I could have maybe DIY’ed this all a little more, but I’m a photographer, and October is a crazy busy month for me.  I was okay with the fact that I  sewed something, glued something and even glittered something!   Here is what we wore:

Mario

         

Luigi

I will have to make note, since I think my husband would be upset if I didn’t, that no fake mustache was used for Luigi’s costume.

Toad

Princess Peach

Princess Dress

For Princess Peach’s dress I just took a strip of dark pink felt,  cut big scallops, and hand sewed it to the inside of the collar of her dress. So easy to take off for future wear!

Trick-Or-Treat Bags

This is where I got a little crafty with canvas totes, felt, glue and glitter!

One of my favorite and smallest details was the banana peel off the back of our “kart”!  Made of my trusty felt and a rubber band.

We cruised around with our multicolored party lights flashing while blaring tunes from the “Super Mario Bros Medley” Pandora station.  It was so much fun!!
