Printable Mario Kart Gourd Costumes


If you're anything like us, you've gone out of your gourd over Mario Kart 8. You've probably spent hours trying to think of the best racing strategies. Heck, you've probably even dropped “best Mario Kart combination” in your search bar while at work (we do that all the time). It just seems natural to bring the Nintendo crew in for some Halloween decor and we're here to help you out with these miniature printables for gourds and pumpkins! They're based on the top contenders from the Wii U version of the game.


Miniature Mario Kart Pumpkin Character Examples


Miniature Mario Pumpkin


Of course, you have to have Mario in when you're talking about karting with pumpkins! It just wouldn't be Mario Kart without him.


Luigi Gourd


Luigi has gained his own following with his signature death stare, which you can see him doing on this pumpkin. (Cool it Luigi)!


Bowser Gourd


King Koopa's, the number one villain of the Mushroom Kingdom, has gotten squashed by Mario and his pals plenty of times...but never like this!


Miniature Princess Peach Pumpkin


You'd better believe that the reigning Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom is ready to kart!


Yoshi Gourd


Watch out for this little dino driver! He might just try to eat the pumpkin when he's done with his race.


Donkey Kong Miniature Pumpkin


Don't worry. DK has been told to refrain from throwing barrels while on his pumpkin. (Turtle shells are another story, though).


Wario Gourd


He's the bad boy of the tracks and of Halloween decorations. Make sure you have an extra special gourd for him!


Miniature Waluigi Pumpkin


What did Luigi ever do to get this guy angry? Whatever it was, maybe a relaxing cruise will help him ease his anger!


Toad Gourd


Last, but not least, it's Toad! He might be small, but he's a real "fun-gi" to have at your party.
