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.
About Toad’s Look
Toad is a humanoid that has a mushroom-like head in white with bright red circles on it. He works on Princess Peach’s behalf, and while Toad is the name of the individual characters, it is also the name of the entire race. In earlier games, Toads were known as Mushroom Retainers.
In addition, there are individual 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. It is a simple costume that is also very comfortable to wear.
How to Dress Like Toad From Nintendo
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.
