And the winner is.....
Mario & Luigi...again?
This albeit dynamic duo didn't make the short list for one very big reason...
we rocked it out as Mario & Luigi 2 years ago!!! But, as the Little Guy does get 50% of his genetic code from moi...there was NO changing his mind. Since he got to pick out his own costume, mine was the only one I had to worry about modifying. Luckily I had these on board:
Little Guy's old Mario hat, my set of Gap overalls I have had since high school (i know, very old school), and the refashioned t-shirt turned jacket I used last year for my Veronica Lodge costume found here.
I began by seam ripping the monogrammed "V" from the jacket (*sniff)
Once completed, I turned the jacket to the inside and pinned the opening the jacket together. Stitched close to the edge to transform jacket back into jersey shirt.
Traced two large circles onto scrap piece of yellow felt I had hiding in my craft stash and cut out.
I secured the yellow buttons using adhesive velcro dots (hey, they're super convenient). With right sides of the velcro together I secured one adhesive end on the bib, positioned the yellow button to cover the fastener and pushed down to secure on the velcro adhesive.
And there you have it, Mario & Luigi; or should I say Luigi & Mario, make their Halloween debut. Again. Oh well, you can't win them all.
