When Heather and I devised this plan for our kids to dress in Mario Party Halloween costumes, we didn’t really think about the division of labor between the costumes. My Mario and Luigi were a piece of cake compared to her Princess Peach and Toad. Sorry, Heather. 😂
Another thing we didn’t really think about? How we were going to photograph 4 cranky kids during the meltdown hours of 3-5pm. Let’s just say we did our best with the help of lollipops for the kids and hard ciders for the moms. To be honest, our kids are really keeping us “on brand” with our okayest photography. Riiiight?! Oh well.
On to the Mario Party Halloween costumes!
Mario + Luigi
Literally the easiest costumes I’ve done so far. They were onboard and excited to be Mario and Luigi up until 2pm on photoshoot day… then suddenly they didn’t want to be Mario and Luigi anymore. Cue the bribery. Then once they got their costumes actually ON, they were back onboard. Phew.

Princess Peach + Toad
Homemade and adorable. Didn’t Heather do an amazing job?! The bike helmet Toad hat is the perfect touch because, if you watch our Instagram Stories, you know how much Nolan is a rebel without a cause.

We are so, so excited to get out on Halloween night with our Mario Party posse.
