To make the dress for my Princess Peach costume, I looked over many pictures of her online and noticed that her dress resembled a standard princess dress . So I bought a pattern for a Disney princess dress and then modified it into a likeness of Peach's dress.
I started with the pattern and bought the suggested material and some additional dark pink material to add to the bottom of the dress. I cut the pattern out and stitched together the skirt part of the dress first, adding a large band of the darker pink color to the bottom of the dress. I stitched the bodice and modified the neckline.
I purchased a large bathroom tile sample and outlined it in gold molding clay, baked it and then used Velcro to attach it to the front of the dress. I used a petticoat under the dress to give it a bit more flair. I wore elbow-length white gloves.
For the crown, I purchased a French flower bucket and used tin snips to first cut a zig-zag pattern on the widest part of the bucket and then to cut out the bottom of the bucket. I then sanded off the jagged edges on the bottom. I Gorilla-Glued some clips to the bottom of the crown so that I could attach it to the wig. I bought some sample bathroom tiles in red and blue, put gold molding clay around the tiles, baked them to harden it and then glued them on the crown (red on front and back, blue on the sides).
I bought a blonde wig as Peach has blonde hair. With some extra tiles I had bought, I made blue round stone earrings.

Homemade Mario and Princess Peach Costumes
We wanted to make these homemade Mario and Princess Peach costumes look as realistic as possible, and I think we did a pretty good job.
Mario: We found rather cheap overalls on eBay and was able to find a red long sleeve shirt at Goodwill. We also found workboots at Goodwill that were already old, so they looked like a painter would have worn them. For the hat, we bought a red baseball hat at Michael's and cut out an "M" out of a circle of yellow felt. We attached it to the hat by sewing the top, bottom, and the sides.
Princess Peach: We found a pink prom dress on eBay that had short sleeves, just like Princess Peach's dress. We then bought pink satin in a darker color than the dress and sewed it to the back of the dress, draping it around the butt area. We made the crown out of a lampshade by turning it upside down, spray painting it gold and gluing plastic jewels onto it. We clipped the crown onto a long blonde wig. We found the top of a ceramic jewelry box and spray painted it dark green to act as the large jewel on the dress. We sewed it to the dress in the front.
Both costumes cost a little over $100 together.

The dress material for my homemade Princess Peach costume is light pink silk with embedded glitter. The flounces and arms are made with a sheer hot pink material with sparkly beading (also embedded). The trim is also hot pink and sparkly; I stumbled upon it while walking through Joann's.
The crown is made from thick gold-painted aluminum foil painted with gold glitter paint and bejeweled with 1/2" jewel buttons from Joann's. The same jewels were used to make the earrings. The broach is a ball of aluminum foil with the gold foil as backing and painted with purple glitter paint.
The gloves are Halloween store long white gloves. The hoop skirt/petticoat was borrowed from a friend. I was able to make the dress in one day using an adult Cinderella pattern by Simplicity. This was my second time using a sewing machine.

Homemade Mario Bros., Princess Peach and Toad Group Costume
This is our Homemade Mario Bros., Princess Peach and Toad Group Costume. For my dress, I used an old prom dress. Dyed a piece of ribbon and gloves to match. I sewed the tinsel to my dress giving it the flowing look, then hot glued the ribbon over it. Found the crown in the toy dept. and attached a blue stone to my chest for the finishing touch.
Mario and Luigi are pretty simple and self explanatory. Toad found his vest at Goodwill. For his hat, we wrapped a light shade with a white sheet. The dots are red velvet, hot glued down. We glued a baseball cap inside and he wore it like a hat.
