i THINK PRINCESS BUBBLEGUM IS REALLY UNDERESTIMATED BECAUSE SHE IS THE MOST OPENLY FEMININE CHARACTER AND AT THE SAME TIME CAN RIP YOU APART ONE LIMB AT A TIME AND AT THE SAME TIME IS A GOOD FRIEND TO EVERYONE AND I THINK SHE’S GREAT
i really, really love cosplaying PB. she’s the character i would have loved to see in a cartoon when i was a kid- a pretty pink princess who likes being pretty and pink but who also likes science and math and expanding her knowledge on all kinds of subjects. a princess who’s not always the damsel in distress! and yet she’s got a ton of respectable flaws, too. PB is a really great character. this is the first cosplay i’ve made for her- i decided to go with her default- but it certainly won’t be the last.
peppermint butler was made as a surprise gift for me by my lovely friend sarah! <3

magical girl princess bubblegum, somewhat based on her royal tart dress
PB is one of those characters whom if i cosplay, i want to master her to my absolute max ability. i like her way too much to slack off on cosplaying her!
i picked her default dress to start with, but because the design is so plain (and, in my opinion, often unflattering on real people), i decided to alter it slightly. i redesigned the dress slightly, giving it a more princesslike silhouette with huge poofy sleeves and an empire waist, along with lowering the collar. fabrics are all dupioni and lace i dyed to match. there’s still a lot of details to go, but i’m very happy with it so far- from a construction standpoint, it’s come together very well. i wanted to strike a balance between PB’s practicality and actual fancy princess wear and i think i’ve got it. now there’s just minor adjustments and details to add.
the crown is 3-dimensional. i could have just used craft foam or art paper which seems to be the popular method, but i wanted something solid with some dimension to it. sculpting and props are not my forte, but i’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
the wig is two wigs sewn together to make for an extra-thick one. when i’m finished this cosplay i’ll probably tease it out a little bit more.
my goal is to finish this one up within the next few days, so i can concentrate on my monoko and asuka cosplays.
