Justin as Wario from Nintendo

Costume made by :

I made this costume for my friend Justin for our Smash Bros. Brawl group. Wario was such a fun costume to make! I love Wario so much! :D

I made the goggles from clay, fabric, and a clear plastic sheet. I covered a thrift store helmet with yellow lycra, attached a red fabric stripe, made fabric straps, and made all the "W"s on the costume from painted vinyl. I RIT dyed a pair of light jeans pink, made the shoe covers and modified work gloves. The vest was the hardest part. I made it completely from scratch out of denim. I wanted it the right color so I sponge painted the entire thing with turquoise paint. I hand painted the "Hurry up!" design on fabric and attached it to the back of the vest with Fabri-tac. I added little "W"s on the gold buttons on the front too.

Are you selling others like this? Or do a tutorial for me to show how you did the back.. I plan on doing a feminine Wario. and this would help a lot~

I'm not selling others at this time unfortunately since painting can be time consuming. I'll consider making a tutorial for patches or something similar though!

First, I collected reference pictures and printed the best one out in the correct size. I cut out the basic shape and traced it on red cotton fabric in pencil and then free-handed the rest of the design using the reference as a guide. Then I just painted everything with fabric paint. For the gradient parts I made sure the yellow was dry and I used slightly watered down paint. For this I attached the patch with Fabri-tac glue but a better idea would be to use HeatnBond iron-on adhesive on the fabric, paint, and then iron the patch on to the clothing. Here's a reference of the design in case you need another one: [link] Good luck! :heart:

Thanks a bunch! Any specific kind of fabric paint you used? I already have my jean jacket for it and cut the sleeves and bottom.. Did you also help make the helmet? xD I don't know where to start on that one...

I used the brand they sell at Joann's fabrics but I can't remember the name. Maybe Tulip? I'm not sure since it was a few years ago. I probably used plain acrylic paint for some of the parts too. We found a thrift store helmet and I covered it with yellow lycra fabric(the seam was down the middle and hidden by the red fabric stripe). I made the red straps on the sides from fabric and glued them to the inside of the helmet and I cut the W's out of vinyl fabric. I made the goggles out of random objects I found around the house because I was cheap, but you could just buy some too. :D -Tranquility

@.@ Oh trust me I'm as cheap as possible. xD So.. did you use the spray kind or the regular kind? I'm confused on which kind to buy.. Sorry for bothering you xD

I used normal paint and painted it on with a brush. :D

You may look rediculous to most people, but I still love the jacket and would definitely buy it...
