Princess Peach

Super Mario Bros.

Last Updated: 09-10-2014

I made this costume after finding McCall's pattern M6420 in January 2013 and I thought it reminded me of Princess Peach's dress. Princess Peach is a character that I grew up liking and she has always been someone that I wanted to eventually Cosplay. With a pattern that was listed as being "easy" I figured it would be a fun costume to make for Anime North 2013.

It actually turned out to be quite an undertaking. It was quite tricky to make alterations to the pattern and a lot of parts turned out with mixed success. I had to re-sew almost every seam and part of this costume at least twice and I almost gave up on the costume when I ran into issues gathering the skirt to fit it into the bodice.

In the end I'm so proud of myself for sticking with it and getting through it for the con. I think I put in well over 50 on this costume and it took 3 months. After wearing it to AN I've decided to fix up a few parts. I'm taking in the bodice a bit because it turned out a bit baggy around the chest and I'm redoing my collar because the shape didn't turn out very well.

I owe my friend Adrien a huge thank you for agreeing to let me commission him to make my crown and brooch with just a month until con. I had originally planned to order those accessories online, but the seller dropped off the map after I had waited a couple of months to order from them. Adrien stepped up to the plate and made a crown and brooch that are more beautiful than the ones I was planning to buy. He learned how to resin casting to make really pretty pieces!

My friend Pan helped me style the wig. She cut the bangs, side burns and helped me with creating the silly side curls. :3 The wig is a Luthien from Arda in platinum blonde. I love how it turned out!

As of August 2013, I re-did the collar, took in parts of the bodice and sleeves and completely re-gathered the skirt of the dress. I also changed my hoop skirt and got one that was a bit fuller.
