Photoset of Princess Peach - Super Mario Bros.

Princess Peach costume by me (Straywind)

Guest appearance of Mario and Luigi (I’m not sure who the Cosplayers are because I’m silly and forgot their names)

I started this costume in February and only “finished” it a week before Anime North 2013. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to finish it. Trying to fit the bodice to the skirt was pure torture. I don’t think I’ll ever make another ball gown.

Post-AN I decided to fix it up and I’ll be re-doing the collar and attempting to take in the shoulder and neckline to give it a better fit. Wish me luck!

My crown and brooch were made by Adrien. He bailed me out when the person I was going to order from vanished for a while. He learned resin casting to make the gems and they’re so beautiful! (^^)

My wonderful friend Pan helped me style the wig. (^_^)

To the wonderful Luigi and Mario Cosplayers that I hung out with for a bit on Saturday evening - You guys were great! Thanks for making me smile by being in character! Also, thanks for finding the strap for my shoe when it was lost. You guys are my heroes! (^-^)
