Transform Into Royalty with a Bowsette Costume

The only thing hotter than Bowsette is you dressing up as her. In this post, we’ll show you how to cosplay by making your own Bowsette costume!

Who knew a black corset and spiked chokers could be fit for a princess? Without a doubt, one of the hottest trends in cosplay right now is Bowsette, a hybrid of Nintendo’s Peach and Bowser. She’s got fangs, light skin, blonde hair, horns, and a spiky collar with spiked armbands. 

She’s not easy to please and loves to play hard to get. Her fan base is growing so big that it’s bursting at the seams. Everyone wants a piece of Bowsette these days, except for Nintendo, who has previously refused to acknowledge her presence publicly. 

Bowsette takes all this in stride, luring new playmates with her devilishly sexy grin and buxom bosom. It’s only a matter of time before she seduces you with her charismatic influence, enticing you with her tight, revealing black leather top, sensual grin, and irresistible black boots.

So, who do we have to thank for kicking off the Bowsette craze? On September 19, 2018, Twitter user @ayyk92 tweeted a comic showing Bowser getting a hold of Toadette’s Super Crown, enabling him to transform into a female human version of himself. And thus, Bowsette was born.

Since then, fans and admirers worldwide have shared their depictions of Bowsette in fan art, cosplay, and even a custom amiibo is available. Most have Bowsette as a blonde with horns like Bowser, wearing black apparel with Peach’s crown, earrings, and blue amulet. 

Of course, Bowsette also has the spiked turtle shell back, spiked cuff choker, and bracelets (just like Bowser). And the best part is that various depictions of Bowsette have taken all shapes and forms, ranging from innocent art to sexy cosplay. Fans have genuinely put their own spin and touch on Bowsette, making her the hottest mashup in cosplay.

So, if you’re considering dressing up and need a Bowsette costume, you have many options. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Bowsette costume:

  • Black Apparel
  • Spiked Choker
  • Spiked Cuff Bracelets
  • Super Crown
  • Blue Amulet
  • Shoes
  • Horns
  • Bowser Shell
  • Wig
  • Tail
  • Earrings
  • Fangs
  • Tights or stockings

Below, we’ve scoured sites to assemble a thorough list of options to help turn you into the best Bowsette cosplay yet! 

Create your own Bowsette costume.

A Bowsette costume’s elements can be divided into necessities and extras. And that’s precisely how we’ve split up our post, so you know what you’ll need for your Bowsette costume and what is considered an extra. 

Necessities Section

Without these pieces, you can’t transform into a Bowsette.

Black Apparel

Her black apparel is the first mandatory piece to a Bowsette costume. This apparel is what makes Bowsette sexy! Depending on the type of Bowsette look you are going for, you have a few options for what you can wear. Lucky for you, we’ve divided some suggestions for you below into three variations of how “sexy” the outfit is.

Spiked Choker

The spiked choker is, without a doubt, a part of the signature look of Bowsette. This choker is another element taken straight from Bowser. And it’s part of what makes Bowsette look like a badass. Here are our favorite spiked chokers:

Spiked Cuff Bracelets

The spiked cuff bracelets go hand in hand with the spiked choker, which is another signature piece of Bowsette. Typically, Bowser wears two sets of spiked cuffs on his arms (one on his wrists and one on his biceps). 

With Bowsette, we’ve frequently seen her wear only one set on her wrists. But we’ve also seen a more sexy spin on the Bowsette costume by adding spiked cuffs to her thighs. 

Depending on the size of your legs, you might need to get a spiked choker since the length will better fit (we recommend this for most adults). Below, you can find our top recommendations for spiked cuff bracelets:

Super Crown

The Super Crown is perhaps one of the most essential parts of the Bowsette costume because it’s exactly what enabled Bowser to transform into the female human version of himself. Without the crown, there is no Bowsette! There are many crown options, and we’ve listed our favorites below.

And if you’re okay with using just a regular Princess Peach crown, which differs from the Super Crown. Here’s some potential crowns:

Blue Amulet

Another way that Bowsette stands out is with her blue amulet. This large blue jewel shaped like an oval is one of the main pieces that distinguishes the Princess Peach half of Bowsette. The amulet is typically placed on the center of the chest (right where the cleavage line is) or as a necklace. 

The best option for the amulet is typically part of a set with the crown. While we have found better quality crowns (see below), this amulet is spot-on and easy to apply.


Part of Bowsette’s costume is, of course, her shoes! We recommend finding a pair of comfortable heels or boots to go along with her look. And the good news for you is that we’ve done the hard work by putting together the following list of great shoe options for you:


The horns are an essential part of Bowsette and have been included in almost all depictions of her that we’ve seen. Why? Because Bowser has horns, this is one of the easiest ways to identify that the character is Bowsette, not just some random blonde girl obsessed with spikes.

Here are our top suggestions of where to find the best Bowsette horns for your costume:

Bowser Shell

The last critical element to Bowsette is her shell, which, of course, comes from Bowser. This shell is perched on her back and is primarily green, with a white outline, and must include the famous white spikes. This shell is the most challenging part of the costume because there are not many pre-made Bowser Shells for sale. 

Amazon has a Bowser costume kit that you can purchase that comes with the shell, and the price is more reasonable. Or, if you’re ambitious, you could always attempt to DIY and create your own Bowser Shell.

Extras Section

Add these to enhance your Bowsette costume.


Bowsette is a blonde, which she gets from Princess Peach. So, depending on your natural hair, you may need to get a blonde wig. There are several great options that we’ve found for you that we’ve linked below.

In some cases, we’ve even seen Bowsette with red hair, and she looks pretty awesome with that fiery shade of red. Here are some suggestions for red wigs:


In some depictions of Bowsette, you’ll see her with a large tail, which is also the main physical feature of Bowser. The tail is typically a yellowish color and also features white spikes. 

Unfortunately, we haven’t found many great pre-made options for authentic-looking dinosaur tails. Our best suggestion would be to purchase a Full Bowsette costume set like the one at the bottom of the article or to make one yourself


While earrings are not necessary for a Bowsette costume, they make it more evident that Princess Peach is involved in the mashup. Peach’s signature earrings are large, circular, and aqua blue. 

They sit just below her earlobes and are the same color as her blue amulet. If you do have your ears pierced, we highly recommend picking up a pair of the earrings we suggest below:


Some depictions of Bowsette have her with fangs like a vampire. This depiction is a straightforward and cheap thing to add to your costume if you don’t mind having something attached to your teeth for the duration you are wearing your costume. Here are our suggestions for some excellent vampire fangs:

Tights or Stockings

If you choose to wear a sexy black outfit as a part of your Bowsette costume, you may find the need to wear tights or stockings to dress up your legs a bit. Here are some of our personal favorites that you might also like:
