Roaring ’20s Bowser Costume Has Plastic Spoon Embellishments
There are all sorts of way to interpret Princess Peach’s and Bowser’s looks, but I’m a fan of this roaring ’20s style. Blunt Force Cosplay is the Bowser portion of the costumed duo, and he nails it. He assembled parts of the costume, modified existing pieces (like finding a suit and painting it the right shade of yellow), and made some aspects completely from scratch. I especially like what he did with the hat — it used to be a straightforward black hat — and the shoulder flair. He used plastic spoons for the latter, and it gives the suit an armored look.
Look at the photos below to see how the plastic spoons evolved into the shoulder pauldron-style embellishments on the suit jacket.
