You’re always fighting a losing battle when you decide to dress as the console itself.
Quite possibly the creepiest looking Mario we’ve every seen. He went on to survive 8 worlds and defeat Bowser only to give the lovely princess to Luigi.
I always wondered why his legs and arms were so large. It was to store water of course!
It’s just as well he labelled his box or I would have not had a clue!
Did you make your costume yourself?
You’ll never see this stealth master coming. Unless, of course, he turns on the headlights on his head.
Luckily somebody else turned up in a small box so he didn’t look stupid.
This one has a bit more thought put into it and a bit of humour but it still makes our fail list.
The Big Daddy is just not as scary when made of cardboard and foil.
