Christmas gifts for my Brother

Mario's hat ^

Luigi's Hat ^

Waluigi's Hat^

Wario's Hat

I thought it would be a cool idea to make the hats that Mario, Luigi, Waluigi and Wario wear out of modeling clay that you can bake in the oven to harden and give them to my brother for Christmas. they are of course the pictures above. I figured it was a good gift for him because he loves video games and no one else would have them because they are one of a kind. I ran my idea past both Richard and my mom and they both thougt it was great idea and that Josh would really like them.

Yesterday I went to Micheal's with my mom and we got the clay that I would need for each one of the hats. I decided that since Richard was playing video games that today would be a good day to make them, so I got the wax paper and my xacto knife set and went to work. It wasn't too hard for me to make them because I had done some research on them and printed a lot of different views of the hats off of the internet. I think they turned out rather well. I have now baked Mario's and Luigi's hats, as I type this Wario's hat is in the oven and once he is done Waluigie will go in.

For those of you who don't know, Mario and Luigi are the good guys in the Super Mario games and Wario and Waluigi are the bad guys in some of the games. And since Mario is so Iconic I thought it best to do those hats then anything else, plus Josh already has the mushrooms from the game cause they are tins that hold candy. I just hope he likes the hats.

Not worried about it, he doesn't know I have it so all is safe.
