Luigi CostumeEveryone knows that the story is not complete without the main character – the guy or gal who is the center of it all. But while all the focus is always on the main protagonist, there is no denying the contributions of the ever-present sidekick. And in all stories, movies, and novels, there is perhaps no better sidekick than Luigi from the Super Mario Bros.

So this coming Halloween season, one of the best costume ideas you can get is the Luigi costume. This is not just paying tribute to the all-time classic but also paying tribute to the ever-enduring sidekick character of all time. Yes, Luigi has earned the title of being the most popular sidekick and he continues to kick ass as a famous character.

And that is exactly what you want in a Halloween costume right? Someone who is famous and well-known will easily get recognized by others. And whether you encounter an old man, a kid, or a lady, everyone will surely know who you are portraying. Now that is a relief. But who exactly is Luigi and why is he so famous?

You first learned about him in the 1993 video game Mario Bros. There, he was available as the controllable character for the second player. Luigi is not much of a main player was he not? But he too was just as useful and as powerful as the main guy. In fact, he also has his own fan base.

And although the main guy of the title is Mario, who is the older twin brother of Luigi, this did not stop Luigi from standing out. While many sidekicks always drown in the glaring magnificence of their partner, Luigi is always more of an independent guy with his own strong character and image.

Even the company that developed Luigi realized that the guy is more than just a regular sidekick. Therefore, in the 1991 installment of the Mario Bros. computer game franchise, Nintendo removed Mario from the main spot and placed Luigi in place. In the story, Luigi is the main guy basking in the spotlight and Mario is the poor guy that needs to be rescued.

Design-wise, the Luigi Halloween costume is very iconic and stylish indeed. He also features the same plumber in a jumper suit design but with a green color scheme as opposed to Mario’s red color scheme. And because Luigi is taller and slimmer compared to Mario, it will be great for people with similar body figure.

Luigi Background Information

Luigi informationAccording to the description of the person who designed Mario and Luigi, the siblings are supposed to be Italian plumbers. Possibly, the design concept of the costume of the two is based on the common attire of plumbers in Italy at that time. If you look closely, the jumper suit wear of Mario and Luigi are more suited for similar jobs.

In addition, Mario and Luigi are also seen with their ever-present cap. This is natural for plumbers as they constantly need to guard their top from water leaks and such. And in terms of color scheme, Mario and Luigi is the opposite palette of one another. Mario is red themed and Luigi is blue themed.

So if you like blue more, the Luigi costume will cater to you more. And usually, this is the case. That is because boys are more likely to be inclined to like blue instead of red. Also, Luigi’s dress underwent several changes across the Super Mario Games so you might chance by another color scheme.

Luigi received his debut during the 1996 release of the film titled SuperMario Bros: The Great Mission To Save Princess Peach.
