Princess Peach Halloween Costume Redo

Posted on

My 9-year-old wanted to be Princess Peach from Super Mario Brothers this year.  Her brothers wanted to be Mario and Luigi so she thought it would be fun to be part of the group.  That was until she saw the costume at the store.  It had puffy shoulders and big puffs on the hips.  She was having no part of it.  So we decided to make one out of another costume.  She thinks it turned out great.

We started with the costume below.  First we cut off all the gold ribbons and seam removed the gold trim from the top and the velcro from the back to hold up the wings.

We then bought the charm at Joann Fabrics ($3.99 then 1/2 off) and glitter foam.  We painted the charm with craft paint yellow.  Then cut foam out and hot glued it to the charm.

Then we replaced the ribbons with pink ribbon scraps we had from a birthday party and used a pink trim along the top and around the belt.

Then we cut the crown out of yellow foam and put two holes on the side that we put a headband through.

Now she is all ready for the big party next weekend.  Who would have thought I could have made a costume she liked better for less money.

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
