My first Halloween. And blog post.

Good evening internet. Thought that maybe I should start a blog seeing as I've been pretty much silent since first visiting Destructoid (which is pretty much since the site yeah... better late than never!). Anyway, here we go...

So, Halloween. What a night. I've never really been much of a fancy dresser, but this year, I decided I would give in and go all out. I wanted to go out as a group with some of my friends, and being the unoriginal quim that I am, decided that it would be amazing if we went out as characters from the Mario series. I decided if we were going to do this, we were going to do it right.

First off, I decided that I wasn't going to settle for red and green baseball caps with the M and the L simply drawn on paper and stuck on the front, no! None of that! My friend Chris and I scoured many a market stall, searching high and low for the right shaped hats. Then finally, we found them. After spray painting them the right colours (they were impervious to fabric dye), and sewing on the M and L patched I made, we were part way there.

Next were the dungarees, we found some amazing cornflower blue ones on the internet, but as luck would have it, they were fresh out, so we had to settle for some navy blue ones, here we are testing them out:

So Mario and Luigi were pretty much done, next I needed to concentrate on a Bowser costume for my other friend Baker. This was going to be a tough one. Seeing as time was short, I quickly sewed a mask together using some foam sheets, then cut up a green t-shirt and made a balaclava. Baker would be providing the wig and the horns. He also had an old Ninja Turtle shell costume from when he was a kid, to which he stuck spikes to.

Here's how the bowser muzzle was looking:

And we were pretty much done, after adding a few little extra touches to the Mario brothers costumes (some yellow buttons, and some fake mustaches which I cut to the right shape), we were all set to go! We had Mario, Luigi, Bowser and Peach.

Here we all are. We don't actually know the guys dressed as Link and Zelda, we just met them when we were out and had our photo taken together.

Here we are showing off our geekness.

Extreme close up!


We celebrate an amazing night out.

So yeah, my first proper fancy dress night was absolutely crazy. There were sooo many people stopping us to take our photos, or asking to have our picture taken with them... I felt like a celebrity.
