Need Some Good Tips Part 2

So, aside from needing help with relaxing....I also need some help from you creative geniuses out there!! My kids informed me that they want to be the Mario Brothers for Halloween. After gently pleading with them to wear last years costumes (my kids don't grow)they presented me with the following compromise......they will be going as the Mario Brothers.
Here is their list:
Gavin- Luigi
Caeden- Mario
Suzy- Princess Peach
Mike- King Koopa (Bowser)
Jen- Mushroom....yes, I get to be a fungus

So, the Mario and Luigi are not too hard, I think I have that pretty under control as well as the princess. I am totally at a loss with Koopa and Mushroom. I would LOVE some help from you wonderful creative ones out there. Impart to me your wisdom!! I beg of you!!!!!!

Mushroom: get a white kitchen bowl, decorate with red polka dots (big ones) and wear it on your head. I also suggest you wear more clothes than the mushroom does, he's practically naked! Hehehehe. Miss you!

After your ingenious Batman and Diaper Genie design, these should be no problem for you! haha

I bet you could find some kind of dragon motif at Party city...or use a green hooded sweatshirt & sweatpants, attach some orange foam board for the spikes on the back.

The tail? I'm not so sure....a water noodle perhaps? :)

oops...I meant, ingenius. I have my little obsessions too.

the thought of mike with a water noodle strutting from his hiney makes any type of work worth it.
