Costume Information

General
Cost : £90 approx
Time Taken : 16 Hours approx

Description
Princess Peach from Super Paper Mario Wii.

I never thought I would ever dress up as someone wearing sooooo much pink!
The costs do include wig, shoes, the many meters of fabric used ... and accesories.

Finally finished on 21/09/2010!
This is the first dress I have ever made, had quite a lot of fun with it.
The hardest part of it was the amount of gathers needed on the puff sleeves and waistline.
My sewing machine really didn't want that amount of fabric going thru it!
Will be fun running round the expo in this! (until I fall over due to high heels!)

I remember from last year! I have got some gel insoles and heel protecting things for them, which should help :D

So cute! I look forward to seeing this!
From experience, expect insanely sore feet by the end of the day! Even with gelly insoles (I was peach a couple of years ago and i swear my feet nearly fell off!)

Contacts! (Posted 27th September 2010)

I've ordered a pair of blue contact lenses, as my eyes are dark brown .. not very peach-like ...
I've worn contact lenses plenty of times before, so shouldn't be a problem!

The wig! (Posted 21st September 2010)

Well I bought this wig off Ebay, and it was cheap-ish.
But I'm really surprised by how good it is!
It doesn't seem to tangle :O
So i have just got to cut the fringe, already styled it.
*sorry about the bad pic, no-one was around to take a good pic >_<*

Crowns! (Posted 17th September 2010)

I was a bit bored at work today ... so I thought lets use the facilities here!!
I cut, sprayed and cooked the princess crowns!
In the picture they are in our super duper spray-painting oven drying thingy :P
At least I won't get spray paint all over my house now!
