Cosplayer Fancy_Duckie > Costume of Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time with Finn and Jake
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The dress is made from casa satin. I used a cocktail dress pattern from Simplicity for the bodice, and patterned my own sleeves. The skirt I just kind of eyeballed and hand-pleated. I inserted some elastic in the bottom hem of the sleeves to get them to ruffle and gathered the tops by hand. The peterpan collar and waistband sash are made from scraps from the Sailor Saturn cosplay I made for a friend and it frays like a motherducker. The crown is made from foamie that has been spray painted gold and the gem is resin cast with a painted back.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I'm so happy I finally was able to cosplay PB!! She's definitely one of my favorite characters in Adventure Time (and she's pink). It's so much fun seeing little kids get all excited to see me in this costume.
- Styling Notes
- I straightened this with the hot water method first, and then took a flat-iron to it. It was pretty ratty from wear, which is why it took so long; I had to cut out so many tangles. ; A ;
- Wig Review
- I really love this wig, but it's pretty close to being dead after 2 years of convention use, despite copious amounts of straightening and Mane n' Tail.
