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
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)
