I have too many baskets of neglected laundry to tend to before I post the tutorial, but hopefully I can pull it together within the next few days.
For the grandparents: this is Toad from the Mario Brothers game. Think toadstool (the hat)?
In other Mario Bros costume news...can you believe I'm getting almost 200 hits a day on my Goomba costume tutorial!? Crazy. And if you live in Boston and are handy with a sewing machine, there's even someone willing to pay you to make a version of my costume. Check it.
