Toad is a classic character from the Mario Brothers' series of video games. First appearing in the original Nintendo game, this anthropomorphic mushroom has appeared in nearly every Mario adventure since. Toad has achieved a cult status among video game fans and is one viable costume option for Halloween. The costume is very easy to make with found clothing, requiring only a small amount of sewing to complete.

Instructions

    Hat

  1. 1

    Cut the brim off of a white baseball cap, and put it on.

  2. 2

    Put the puffy, white hat over the baseball cap. Stuff the space between the two hats with cotton batting until the puffy hat is full and round.

  3. 3

    Sew the puffy hat to the baseball cap with strong white thread.

  4. 4

    Cut four circles out of red felt. Their size will be determined by the size of the hat, but they should be large enough to be easily seen.

  5. 5

    Sew the circles to the front, sides and back of the hat with red thread.

    Vest and the Rest

  1. 1

    Sew a 1-inch thick yellow ribbon to the entire open edge of a navy blue vest. Do not add yellow to the arm holes.

  2. 2

    Put on the vest, along with a pair of white trousers and brown shoes.

  3. 3

    Add the hat to complete the costume.
