Classy and Bowser aren’t usually two words that go together. The villain from Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. is fierce and mean. Redditor noonvale12 found a way to put a fancier spin on the character though. She’s fairly new to cosplay but wanted to make a ball gown. She couldn’t find a character with a ball gown she wanted to make, so she designed “a Bowser-inspired steampunk-ish ball gown.” She started with a Simplicity costume pattern that included the coat and skirt and put everything together herself, including making Bowser’s spikes. You can see a couple of in-progress pictures below.
