In Super Mario Bros lore, Toad is a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom and an attendant to Princess Peach. He has been a staple in Mario games including as a racer in the Mario Kart series.
Fortunately, his costume is very simple and consists of basic articles of clothing, with the mushroom-shaped hat being the only item that you may have to look for online or decide to make on your own.
How to Dress Like Toad From Nintendo
To dress like Toad from the popular video game Super Mario Bros, one would need to emulate his iconic look, which includes:
- Create a mushroom-shaped cap using a styrofoam ball, paint, and fabric.
- Wear overalls or a similar outfit in a suitable color as the base of the costume.
- Add accessories such as white gloves and suspenders to complete the look.
- Apply makeup and style hair to match Toad’s appearance.
The Toad costume usually consists of just the blue-and-gold vest and the white-and-red mushroom hat, so it’s usually up to you to purchase the shoes and the white pants to go with it.
Many people purchase white yoga pants for this costume, and a lot of them also carry around the green Koopa shell pillow as an accessory.
The pants are usually made out of spandex or similar comfortable material, and you can essentially choose any comfortable brown shoes you want to complete the costume.
This is a simple costume that is usually easy to find, and it’s usually very inexpensive as well.

About Toad’s Look
Toad is the loyal palace aid of Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom. He has been a staple in the Super Mario franchise since the very first game, but came on big in the sequel Super Mario Bros. 2 in which he was a fully playable character. He’s been a hit with fans ever since, and became a fan favorite in Super Mario Kart especially.
There are other Toad characters that go by names such as Toadette, Captain Toad, and Toadsworth, to name a few. They wear a large mushroom hat, a blue vest trimmed in gold, brown shoes, and white shorts or pants.
If you’re going cosplaying with someone who is dressed up as Mario or Princess Peach, your Toad costume will be a great complement.
While Toad’s role in the Mario games is usually limited to helping out players who can’t figure out what to do next, this is still a very important character in this ever-popular game, so dressing up like Toad for your next costume party or convention is a great fit for a Mario cosplay crew.
