Myself as Princess Peach!
An original design. A mix of Fantasy, Couture, Steam Fashion, and Princess Peach herself.
I saw fanart once of Peach as a more fantasy type character- having more to do with actual nature, seeing as she's the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, which I love- since the fact she's a normal looking human in a world full of strange creatures, I feel like she could use some interesting revamps- so I added real dried mushroom caps on my arm along with dried moss and small flowers to make myself appear more earthly and fantasy-esque.The choker was created for me by Jessica Galbreth at The Victorian Garden: [link]
I had the Aquamarine made especially for this costume, and I ADORE this piece, it's just so perfect and gorgeous!
The custom goggles were made by our Luigi, Mike Czech- he made everyone's goggles, and they were just incredible!
The Adorable Bustle and lace cuffs were made by Kim Piggott- also our Daisy!
You can't really see my wings in this shot, but I made my own wings out of craft feathers and wooden letters, which I sprayed gold and attached to a handmade wooden skeleton that stuck right into the back of my corset. They were supposed to represent the gift she sends Mario in the 3rd Game: [link]
The bottle contains dried maple leaves, to represent the Tanooki Leaf from the 3rd game as well. [link]
The beading on the front was actually an old necklace I had, as well as the Flower clip-ons.
The corset was a LUCKY find at Value Village several years back that I was hoping to use for something Peach related! Awwwyea!
Lastly, the contacts and the Wig are the same from my other Peach outfits!
Last but not least, the group made it into this really gorgeous convention Video by Michael Zhang (@3:23): [link] Worn at Sakuracon 2012, Seattle WA
