I have always been a fan of princesses from cartoons, movies, and Video Games. One of my favorite’s has always been Princess Peach Toadstool, from the Mario games. And her many different outfits are always so fashionable.
I’ve waited years to make a Princess Peach costume, and when I finally did so, I had no idea where to begin. Never-the-less, I didn’t let that stop me. So I decided to make a costume based on Peach’s outfit from the game Super Mario World (1991, SNES) since it was the first Mario game I had ever played and my first encounter with the Princess and the other citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.
So, I sketched out a pattern for the top of the dress based on my own measurements and made a simple long skirt pattern as well. I used an old t-shirt to line the inside of the top, and used a white silk and a little lace to add an inner layer to the skirt. After making some pattern adjustments and gathering the skirt, I made my Peach outfit. Originally I made it as a shirt and a skirt, but I later went back and sewed them together to make it a dress. I used cotton as the main fabric, and did the details (the waist band, the bow, the gather things) with silk. Everything was sewn by hand, no machine used.
I made a crown with gold metallic poster board , acrylic gems, and gold glitter fabric glue. I made a wire comb and hot glued it to the inside of the crown to help it stay on my head better. I actually have three different blue brooches for the costume: one is small and acrylic (shown in the pictures), one made from plastic, and the other I cast from resin. I decided to use the smaller acrylic gem, as it gave the costume a Victorian feel. I have two different sets of earrings for this as well.
In the pictures shown, I have on the smaller blue bulbs so they aren’t as noticeable, but I have much larger ones as well. The earrings were made with Christmas ornaments, clip on earrings, and lots of blue glitter. The long opera gloves were bought from Claire’s and used for my High School Prom, so I figured I might as well get some more use out of them.
The wig took forever to style. I bought a long, blonde Yi Mi wig off Ebay and cut some layers. I then added curls with plastic rollers, steam, and a ton of hairspray to each layer, to replicate Peach’s hair. The very top layer the curls are formed almost like hair spikes, so I ended up using some glue on those to hold them in place.
Note that I am wearing a crinoline petticoat under the skirt to give it a little more body. And obviously, I took a little artistic creativity and added the bow to the back and the gathered thing (I don’t know what else to call it) between the light and dark pink on the dress. But even with my additions, I wanted to keep as true to the character as possible, and I feel like I succeeded.
Overall, I’m very happy with this costume. I actually plan to make more of Peach’s outfits now…I’ve got plenty of pink material laying around. Anyway, I hope you all like my first Princess Peach Toadstool costume (also, there is a video of me practicing my Princess Peach voice and I am wearing one of my larger brooches, the plastic one.)
Pretty Princess Peach DIY Halloween Costume
I made Princess Peach Costume out of two prom dresses and a fitted tee I got at Savers. It came out to about $25.
I cut the hot pink dress to make it like a skirt, with a hot glue gun I sealed around the wait line, then I cut some of the light pink dress in two long pieces I put them on the side of the skirt.
Then I cut another light pink piece and put it on the back of the skirt. On the tee I hot glued a blue fake plastic jewel (dollar tree) then I cut the hot pink and light pink dresses and added material on the sleeves to make it look little puffy.
Then I got a child’s plastic tiara (dollar tree store) and hot glued gold ribbon all around it (dollar tree store) and added some blue plastic jewels also. I grabbed some old small earrings and also hot glued a blue plastic jewel on each. It was super mario fun at my nephew’s party I got a lot of compliments and most importantly my son loved it!
Cool Homemade Plus-Size Princess Peach Halloween Costume
Halloween 2011 I wanted to be someone that would make people laugh which I definitely did. I decided to make a Princess Peach Costume. You occasionally see the Mario and Luigi costumes at parties and I thought it would be funny if I showed up as Princess Peach.
To make this costume was fairly easy. I went thrifting to find a pink skirt. I found one that was for a dollar which was a steal. I then paired the skirt with a pink shirt (which I already had). I then bought white gloves and a blond long wig from a Halloween store. Now to make the jewel, the crown and earnings I visited a Michaels and bought gold glittery foam paper, jewels (blue and pink) , 2 small Styrofoam balls, some glue (for glue gun), earing attachments and some blue paint.
First I painted the balls blue and hot glued an earing attachment onto them. For the jewel I cut an oval shape of the glittery paper and painted a smaller circle in it with the color blue. I then hot glued it to a pin and placed in the middle of my shirt. For the crown cut a long rectangular shape out of the foam paper and drew out 3-4 up side down triangles and cut them out. By doing so I was left with a nice crown shape.
Next I hot glued on 2 pink and 2 blue jewels making a pattern onto the crown. To fill in the spaces between each jewel I cut out small/long strips and glued them in between each jewel. To seal the crown I glued the sides to make a crown and hot glue gun bobby pins to attach to my wig .
Overall it wasn’t hard and I spent probably 40 ish to 50 dollars for everything! Which I think is good cause costumes can really be expensive. To my surprise everybody loved my costume, got tons of laughs and pictures and the best part was that there was a Luigi at the party making the night even more hilarious.
Easy Princess Peach Costume DIY
For the past 3 years I’ve been trying to be Princess Peach for Halloween and this year I finally have blonde in my hair (that you cant really see in the picture that well and I’m dying it again before next weekend ) so it was able to work! I thought it would be really easy to do but turns out its hard to find a pink dress in the fall. Could be easy but I didn’t find the exact peach colors. Finally I found a light pink dress (it had some lace on top but I couldn’t find any other with that exact same pink that Peach has) so I was able to start shopping for the accessories.
For the crown, I bought some thick gold craft paper from the dollar store and some red and blue jewel stickers for the jewels she has on her crown (since I couldn’t find any premade jewels). I then cut the crown into shape and glued it shut. I cut out some ovals out of cardboard and stuck a bunch of the stickers on to make it look like on big jewel (kind of).
There are two red ones on the side and one blue in the front but you can also put a blue on the back. I then hot glued with a glue gun the cardboard onto the crown. I had it glued to a hair clip but it kept falling which is why you can see its falling and on backwards in one of the pictures. For next weekend I’m going to be gluing it to a headband I just couldn’t find one before the day.
For the earnings, I bought some big fake pearl studs and used nail polish to paint them blue. For the broach on her dress, I cut an oval out of cardboard and painted that blue with the nail polish also and glued a safety pin to the back so it could stick to the dress.
For the darker pink part of the skirt I bought a pink scarf in the exact color of Peach”s dress and put a small safety pin in the middle of it and let the rest hang loose on the sides and tied the other part in the front. That part didn’t turn out as well as it could have but I didn’t have time to sew it onto the dress.
Lastly for the gloves I just bought a pair of long white gloves from a thrift shop but you can get them anywhere they have Halloween costumes and probably at the Dollar store or Claires/Ardene.
For shoes I just wore a pair of beige heels since I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. The total amount I spent was max $40 for everything. Enjoy making your own Princess Peach Costume.
DIY Super Pink and Glam Sexy Princess Peach Costume
My name is Emily and I live in Austin, Texas. Each year at Halloween I make it my mission to create a costume that is not only eye-catching, but also from something I personally like. For years I have been jealous of the elaborate politically correct Princess Peach gowns, but I don’t have the funds or the cool climate to wear such an elaborate costume.
In Texas it is hot at Halloween so the less fabric the better, plus majority of the females going out wear sexy costumes. I don’t like that everyone buys the same store bought costumes and then its a case of “Who wore it better,” so I prefer to make my own costumes. Plus I like two piece costumes instead of one piece and its hard to find things in my size.
For my Princess Peach costume I bought a white structured bra and cheap white cotton skirt. I also stopped at Hobby Lobby and bough pink fabric dye, lots of heart and small circle rhinestones, pink satin fabric, elastic, pink ribbon, pink tulle and a few color rhinestones for the crown and earrings.
I dyed the bra and skirt. Cut the skirt shorter and added layers underneath it with the tulle and hot glue. I added side portions like on Princess Peach’s dress with the pink satin fabric (also hot glued). Then scattered pink rhinestones all over the skirt for sparkle plus a pink bow.
The bra I ended up layering the pink satin fabric in a pleated fashion over the cups. I then added heart rhinestones at the tops, a few circle ones scattered on the cups and a big blue rhinestone at the center (like on Peach’s dress).
I made arm puff cuffs by using a hemming machine (easier than sewing) to make long fabric cylinders which I gathered on elastic bands and hot glued to make complete circles. Hope that makes sense, these received rhinestones and bows as well.
I made the crown with an old clear head band that I hot glued a crown I cut out of poster paper. I painted it gold and added rhinestones as well. The crown and arm puff cuffs were the hardest to engineer, but they worked out in the end. I also bought long white gloves, white knee high stockings and gold glitter heels.
The complete product was a success! I received lots of attention and compliments. Several girls who had bought the store-made PP version were envious of my homemade one. The costume was comfortable and very pink- which was what I wanted. I wanted to be glam and feel like a princess and I did - a sexy one! The best part was trying to find other Mario & Bros people to take photos with!
Hand Made Princess Peach Costume
For my 21st birthday (which was conveniently Halloween 2012) my mom and I got together to make by far the coolest hand made Princess Peach costume I have ever had the chance to wear!
Unfortunately, neither my mother or I had any experience in costume making or sewing so we bit off a lot to chew. At some points we completely sewed the wrong thing and had to go through the tedious process of taking the stitches apart. During late nights we would realize that our giggles came from lack of sleep and probably shouldn’t continue working on the costume. Eventually we finished this massive dress! It was a fun and interesting experience that aided in me totally rocking my 21st birthday!
I was worried not a lot of people would recognize my character but that wasn’t an issue at all! I had more compliments (so many that I might have to try this again next year) than ever before! We had truly outdone ourselves and I couldn’t have done it without my wonderful mother!
The handmade parts of the costume include blue earrings, the crown, and the dress itself. We added a hoop skirt that ended up being 4 feet in width and the long white gloves. I was lucky enough to wear comfy shoes since the dress went all the way to the ground.
As a side note, she also made my brother’s costume which was Donkey Kong. That one didn’t take nearly as much effort even though it’s still a cool costume!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
