I've been batting around an idea for a female Mario costume to replace a costume that I've decided to delay for a few months.

Anyway, I have a few ideas for the design myself but I was wondering what sort of costume you'd like/find the least creepy/think was uber-cute.

I was thinking of going one of three ways.

1.) Do the typical Mario overalls with a straight skirt, not tight but kind of fitted, above the knee length, and do the rest of the costume pretty much in keeping with the traditional costume, except perhaps for some tights or something.

2.) Go the loli route, do a full skirt with a cute petticoat, and keep the rest of the 'traditional' costume with the exception of the shoes, perhaps getting some brown suede mary janes or something (whatever I can find at Payless :D)

3.) Go all-out and do a Princess Peach-esque Mario dress...like a denim ballgown, and a shrunken cap to be worn 'crown'-like, elbow-length white gloves, and a big bow in back.

I'm kind of leaning towards the second as a compromise between the two, though I really want to do a ballgown of some sort. I think that Princess Mario might be too weird though (lol)

I'd say no to the loli idea just because it's been done already.

And personally I think your first idea is the one most like what Mario would look like as a girl.

Wow. *blinks* I know I said loli-esque....but wow. I don't think I could stand to be THAT loli.

I had already narrowed it down to the first two, and I think I'm going to go with the first...maybe even do matching leg warmers or something lol. And I'm thinking of doing the raccoon ears and tail also, just for kicks.

Actually there is an outfit like that in a Doujinshi i seen of Mario bro.

It was a pic of a girl who was supposed to be mario. She had a skirt wearing those straps and turtle neck shirt. cute gloves, warm legging and her hat.
she also was wearing the raccon ears and tail. i have the pic somewhere in my comp.

^^ good luck with your outfit.

Aww, cute! I totally got an image of that in my mind just now. I'm not worried about looking like all the other girlies, though, since I'm big and squishy. (But that's okay, I know how to work it!)

Plus, if I get glomped, it won't hurt as much! Yay!

Aw, I think the raccoon ears and tail would be a really cute addition!
