Gamer-Inspired Accessories

Grab a Mario Felt Hat and Mustache to Complete Your Halloween Costume

— October 8, 2012 — Special
Most little boys love video games, which is why there's no reason they wouldn't like the Mario Felt Hat and Mustache. These cute items would make an awesome Halloween costume for any kid. They are all constructed by hand by Etsy seller Heather Mattila and are available on her Sister of a Soldier page.

Her designs are clearly inspired by the iconic Supermario character Mario. She has designed an oversized red Mario hat adorned with his "M" symbol. She's also created an attachable felt moustache to strap on your face. All you'll need to complete the look is a red shirt and a pair of overalls.

This is an awesome video game-inspired Halloween costume that all gamers and kids are sure to like.
