So! I've seen lots of Mario cosplay lately, and I got a gameboy advance, and have been playing lots of super mario.... and I'm thinking about cosplaying princess toadstool (http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/detail.asp?costumeid=11965) ^_^

I've seen this done before, and the biggest differences I see is hair. I don't think i'll be getting a yellow wig, as I just cannot see myself pulling off yellow hair gracefully.. and I was thinking about a blonde wig, Or I could put lemon juice in my own hair and be a dark-blonde peach ^_^;

What's everyone's opinion? Blonde or Au Natural?

Her hair is more strawberry blonde, and I think it looks odd when people use plain blonde wigs...

in the old days she was a brunette ;-;

I thought Peach was always blonde. I can swear it almost. It was Daisy that was the brunette.

I can't remember peach being a blonde, only a brunette o_O;

EDIT: I was wrong, I remember her being blond, just haven't seen a pic for a long time :thumbsup:

hiimemiya: n/p ^_^

Daisy didnt even have color until she was like, put in Mario Tennis or something. I'm talking oldschool NES. And the old cartoons on TV.

I've always thought of it as a very deep almost yellowish blonde. It's most noticable next to Zelda in Super Smash Bros Melee, who has hair more marigold colored than really blonde. ^^ There are dark shades of blonde that almost look yellow, so you could go with something like that...

I dunno if I helped. o.o

That hair looks pretty darn blond if you ask me. I don't see any strawberry in it at all. I'm cosplaying as peach as well and styling a wig.

Peach was a red head until only recently. Orange hair.

In the old-old-old nintendo games, like super mario advance, its a darker blonde, mostly because of the graphics quality. Different game, different hair I guess. She also gets a new dress in another game... with gold applique around it, and a different bottom.... ^_^; anyway, I think I'm gonna use my own dark-blonde hair for this costume, a wig seems kind of expensive for it...

I cosplayed Princess Toadstool... XD Yeah.. the hair, I made it out of fabric. Her hair varies from Bright Yellow, to Dark Brown.. yeah so anything along the lines of that would be best. XD Good luck! I would like to see pictures when you complete it! :D

..here's another fun picture of me in my costume XD
