I’ve never cosplayed before, though I’ve thought and talked about it many times throughout my almost 11 years attending conventions.
Last year at A-Kon, my lovely friends and I discussed doing an Adventure Time princesses group this year, so I’ve been mulling over the possibilities every since. When I decided to go with Princess Bubblegum, I was pretty sure I wanted to do my own version of her, so I’m going with a punk or rocker version of Princess Bubblegum. Now, hopefully I’ll be able to get everything I need in time to pull it all together, but for now I thought I’d share some of my ideas here. Maybe someone reading this will have some additional ideas or suggestions to share.
I am so not good with graphics programs, but I put together a silly little collage of some of the things I like/want to get, with a list of things I still need to decide on/consider…such as how to go about making my own version of PB’s crown.
Clock-wise from top-left:
Dr. Martens 1460 W Hot Pink Patent Boots or something similar, and perhaps less expensive.
Rock & Republic Embellished Denim Vest, which is already in my possession, though I’m not 100% whether or not it will actually become part of this costume.
Wig from Miss Violet Lace, though if I want this specific wig (though I may still modify it by cutting the bangs straight), I may have to request a custom order as I haven’t seen a listing for one for many months. Also, I never realized how hard it was to find the perfect pink wig!
Science the Rat Iron on Patch from That’s What I Needed @ etsy.
Pink Crystal Pendant Necklace (which I already have) from The Young Aesthetic @ etsy.
Needle Felted Peppermint Butler Brooch from Fluffy Parcel @ etsy.
Some of these things may change. Also, as you can see by my list, there are some things I have no ideas about yet. At first I was thinking of getting a sort of tutu-type skirt, but I’m really not sure. Additionally, I don’t know what other jewelry or accessories would work well, how I should do my makeup, and what I should do about the crown (though I have an idea I might try out). So yes, these are some of the things I’m considering for my very first time cosplaying. We’ll see how it goes if I’m able to get what I need and make it work!
