What I Wore: Princess Peach

I promise my next style post will be something other than what I put together for a Geek Girl Brunch event. Promise.

But until then, I did put together a pretty easy casual cosplay for our most recent Videogame themed brunch. I grew up a Nintendo kid, and that never really changed as I became an adult. My husband (then boyfriend) bought me a GameCube to take with me to grad school when I moved away to Pensacola, and it literally became my best friend. I felt really isolated when I moved to a new city, and spent most of my nights either studying, typing away at another emo Livejournal post, binge watching TV shows, reading Harry Potter or playing games on my GameCube with the volume on mute and my music of choice blaring (it was usually 30 Seconds to Mars at that time). When we moved in together, we were one of those freaks that stood in line forever and bum rushed a Toy R Us to get our hands on a Wii console. We still have it and I refuse to get rid of it. Nintendo has been with me always, and I’m pretty sure that’s never going to change. That’s why I decided I had to be one of my beloved Mario Kart characters. I always played either as Princess Peach, Luigi or Toad, so I chose the Princess (naturally). 😉

I wanted to be comfortable and make my cosplay easy. I now rock cosplays on the regular and have a lot of events coming up, such as Supercon, so I knew I had to be budget-conscious. I went simple just with a subtle nod: pink tee, pink shorts & a DIY crown (see inspiration post). I also paired it with my killer new pink messy bob, which was the perfect accessory. Well, aside from all the ones I threw on from a past Fandom of the Month Club box. I thought it was a simple, but cute little outfit, and translated perfectly for the event.
