About Wario’s Look

Wario was Mario’s childhood rival and is now jealous of his success. In earlier portrayals, Wario wore a yellow long-sleeved shirt and fuchsia overalls.

Now, his outfit is a plumber’s outfit that has a purple-and-yellow color scheme. His hat and gloves have a “W” on them, and part of the costume is a zigzag mustache and a large fake nose.

Remember that this is an evil, very gruff character from the Super Mario video games, so he usually has a scowl on his face and looks as though he’s not in a very good mood!

Wrapping Up

Let’s face it; Mario is kind of boring because he’s good all the time, but Wario is a little more exciting because you never know what he is going to do next. That’s why portraying him is so much fun!

The Wario costume is a great complement to all of the other Mario characters who may be accompanying you to that next costume party. This motorcycle-riding, garlic-loving character is certain to be more exciting than Mario, and even if you decide to act like a good guy once you get to the party, it’s still going to be a lot of fun wearing the Wario costume.
