Super Mario Bros
Last Updated: 07-31-2013
Not much to say except for the Poltergust 5000.
It's a red backpack base, the backing painted metallic silver and the straps painted brown. The wheels are wooden toy wheels, attached by velcro (in case they needed to be replaced for any reason). A vacuum hose was attached through a hole at the top. I have two rug tools: one that's unmodded, another that had LEDs mounted in the base as well as LED-lined branches to resemble the lightning effects in the game. The LEDs mounted in the rug tool are attached by velcro for battery changes.
The front panel pieces are either wood or foam core, shaped, sealed, and painted. The LED orb is attached through a stake that runs through the base piece. It is removable and snaps in place for battery changes.
The costume itself is pretty simple - overalls, brown Crocs (lol), a green shirt (that I dyed to get the proper shade), a licensed Nintendo hat, and a big mustache. The yellow "buttons" on the overalls are attached via magnets. The Boo is just pinned to the hat (I thought it was cute).
I also wear bright green socks, but they rarely show up in photos. :)
