This homemade costume for families entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Lisa, the 'Mario Kart' costume creator:

My son kept changing his mind on what he wanted to be for Halloween. First he wanted to be a car (heís obsessed with cars these days). Then he wanted to be every super hero and movie character he saw a costume for, even though he hadnít seen the movies. I decided I wanted him to dress up as something we were both familiar with.

I remembered he already had a Mario costume and if I built him a kart, that could play into his car obsession as well, (not to mention that Mario games are his other current obsession). Then my boyfriend and I decided it would be fun to get in on the action and dress as Mario Kart villains. Thatís how we ended up as Mario, Wario and Waluigi.

I was getting annoyed with all the boxes we had around the house, so I decided to put the carboard to good use and make our karts out of old boxes. Lots of duct tape and spray paint later, I wasnít as environmentally friendly as I wanted to be, but we had some good looking karts. We added tailpipes from paper towel and toilet paper tubes, a compartment for our weapons (banana peels) out of Kleenex boxes and cup holder out of Öa cup.

We searched the dollar store and found wheels (black plates), headlights (tap lights), and taillights (bejeweled compact mirrors). We got creative, we went a little overboard and it was worth it. The reaction from our neighbors and facebook friends was fantastic and we had so much fun pretending we were in a real life game of Mario Kart.
