In the world of Mario Bros., there are many iconic characters, but there may not be many as immediately recognizable as the Shy Guy, even though they definitely don’t like to be seen.
If you are a Mario fan but know there will be a thousand other Marios at the next Comic Con, this is a good costume to consider.
It’s a simple, comfortable costume that you can either make or buy, and if no one recognizes you, that’s all right because it’ll give you the opportunity to tell them what Shy Guy is all about and what makes him unique.
It’s also fun to wear and doesn’t cost a lot to put together, meaning that you can have your next costume in no time.
About Shy Guy’s Look
There are numerous Shy Guys in the Mario Bros. video game, and they come in many different variations and colors. That being said, they are usually seen in a red hooded cape or tunic that covers their body, a belt, a white mask with holes for the eyes, and shoes and pants that are either purple or blue.
The Shy Guys are enemies of Yoshi ever since the game Yoshi’s Island came out, and there are numerous variants that include Fly Guy, a Shy Guy that can fly because he has a propeller on his head; and Snifit, a Shy Guy that can fire bullets out of the cannon on its mask. The reason why they all wear the masks is that they are trying to hide their timidness.
The good thing about a Shy Guy costume is the fact that this is a simple outfit that you can either make yourself or purchase from a store, and its unique color combination will get you noticed as soon as you walk in the room.
How to Dress Like a Shy Guy
The Shy Guy costume is simple because all you need are a red hooded cape, the signature white mask with holes for the eyes, purple or blue scrub pants and shoes, and a military web belt.
Many people wear a white shirt as well, but the shirt can be almost any color you like as long as it matches the rest of the costume.
The components of the costume are very comfortable, which means you’ll be able to wear the outfit for many hours at a time without being uncomfortable.
