In this guide, I will show you how to become one of the most fun characters in the Super Mario universe with just a few items – a SHY GUY!
Shy Guys are mysterious characters in the Super Mario video games who were originally fodder for Mario and Luigi to stomp on, but became sensations in their own right with their addition as drivers in Super Mario Kart.
They’ve personally always been some of my favorites because of their cool outfits which includes a colorful tunic and a distinctive mask.
Before we move on to how to construct a Shy Guy costume, here are some quick tidbits about these weird dudes:
- No one knows exactly what they look like under the mask. Toad or Koopa? Who knows!
- It is not known why they are so shy and don’t show their faces.
- There are 125 types of shy guys in the Super Mario franchise.
- Luigi is the only character who knows what a shy guy actually looks like behind the mask.
There are different types of shy guys so there is no limit to the way you can use your creativity and home-found materials to create an excellent shy guy costume.
