Bowser King Koopa (Normal Version) - Mario




This is a costume I'm making for the other half :p
I really have lost track on how many hours I have spent on this, as most of it has to be handsewn.
This costume is going to be fully lined, and have stuffing in it!

21.10.10 Update!
7 days to go ...
I'll try my hardest to get this done in time, but seeing as I work full time, I haven't really got much time left at all ;_;
Still need to make feet, hands, sew on velcro and finish the head .. eep ...

I completely love this. Soft, cute, yet full of Bowser evilness!

Thanks everyone for the commments ^_^ @ Ranma - Mark really enjoyed being Bowser for the day. The sign was made a day before the expo (something Mark thought of doing, whilst I was finishing sewing!)

Ranma1-2 posted on 3 November, 2010 - 14:16
Oh well done Mark for the sign then - an excellent prop, it works so well in photos and on the day. I'm sure it made others smile too. ..even though someone did actually - feed the bowser - apparently.. weren't there some sweeties found in his mouth at the end of the day? :D Definitely found a new cosplay conscript there. ^_~

Chugging along :)

So I still need to do some details to the eyes.
I'm happy with the hair (so spiky!)
There are things I'd like to improve, but I really don't have enough time :(
Hands and feet just need some finishing touches done.
And the collars just need the spikes sewn to them )

25th October 2010

The last weekend ...

I managed to make some feet, hands and I've almost finished the head :D
Still need to sew a stupid amount of studs and claws though ...
Should be done in time! :3

18th October 2010

Slowly but surely ...

For the past 2 days I have pretty much been working none-stop on Bowsers head :|
The mouth is attached, and it is HUGE!
I've started attaching the eyebrows (3 sections to each eyebrow)
I have everything cut out and stuffed, just need to sew it on ^_^
Hopefully will be finished by the end of the week!
Sorry about the bad images ... I'll have my bf model it when it is finished :P

10th October 2010

ugg ...

Hardly any progress on Bowser this weekend.
I have been struck down with a cold/virus ...
I have made this costume more fitted, as it was quite baggy before.
And I have made the spiky colars andthe tummy area.
I really hope I can get this ready in time! only 2 weekends left!!

27th September 2010


Title says everything XD
For the past 2 days i have been sewing the whole suit together, and all i can say is velcro + pins = stabbing up to the elbows!!
The velcro kept sticking to me, with the pins still attached ... ah well!
Also sewed the tail and spikes on, so i'm a happy bunny, even though my fingers are now purple!
Not going to do any hand sewing for a few days...

22nd September 2010

Bowser head ...

I've started on the Bowser head.
So far it is a green ball! I used a helmet for sturdiness.
I will be attaching the mouth, eyes and hair this weekend!
The black dots represent where the eye holes will be.
