Peach is the original princess of gaming
When it comes to the famous females of gaming, most of us can’t help but think of Princess Peach. Although she was originally known as Princess Toadstool, the name Princess Peach quickly overtook it and has stuck around for quite some time now. Casually, she is often just called Peach, and she is the princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, a fictional land in the Super Mario video game franchise, where she resides in her castle, along with her Toads, who are her loyal servants.
Peach is frequently depicted as the damsel-in-distress, who needs to be saved throughout most of the various Mario games. Her kingdom always seems to be under attack by the evil Bowser and his Koopa Troop, and Mario and his friends must come along to save her. She’s also quite well-known as Mario’s love interest, as he is always vying for her love and affection.
Over the years, Peach has become much more self-sufficient and independent. She’s becoming less of a damsel, more of a hero, and is now considered one of the main characters of the Mario franchise. Her signature color is, of course, pink, which reflects her gentle nature and kind personality. But she’s not a passive, subdued princess, because she’s also known for being a bit stubborn!
As Princess Peach has grown into one of the most popular and famous female gaming characters, she has become a frequent go-to for cosplayers around the world. She is a truly beloved character and her admirers enjoy dressing up as her at various conventions and events and sharing their depictions all over social media.

Making a Princess Peach costume is relatively straightforward. Her full-on look consists of less than 10 items, some of which are optional, meaning this should be simple for you to put together. You’ll notice that her costume resembles the look of a traditional princess, with a long, puffy gown, and a crown, and long white gloves. She also has some serious jewelry and gems!
With just a few of these items, you will be able to transform into the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom in no time. Here’s everything you’ll need to create your very own Princess Peach costume:
The most signature part of Princess Peach’s look is her gorgeous pink dress. The dress looks like a traditional princess dress, with multiple layers, puffed out shoulders, and a flared skirt. Her dress is best described as a ball gown that looks like it comes straight from Cinderella’s kingdom. We typically see Peach in a long dress, that covers almost her entire body, and so you’ll see our top recommendations below are long, full-length options. We also have included some shorter options as well, in case you’d prefer those. Check them out:
- Long dresses
- Short dresses
What makes a princess? None other than her crown! Princess Peach’s crown is pretty simple. It is predominantly gold, has four spikes on it, and has alternating blue and red gems embedded. She is never seen without it on top of her head! Here is the best Princess Peach Crown option that we’ve found.
Part of Peach’s signature look is her long white gloves that cover her hands. They make her look elegant and classy. The gloves typically go all the way up her forearm, even past her elbow, and end just below where the sleeves of her dress cut off. These are some of the best glove options that we’ve found for your perfect Princess Peach costume:
Peach’s look also includes a bit of jewelry! The most prominent gem she has is a blue amulet, which sits right in the middle of her chest at the bottom of her neckline. It’s affixed to her gorgeous pink dress and the jewel itself is outlined with a gold metal border, in which the blue gem sits in. While there are not a ton of options out there, we’ve found a couple of options for you to look at:
The Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom also dons some beautiful blue earrings that match her amulet. They are round shaped spheres that dangle just a bit below her earlobes. The earrings are also quite large, almost about the size of her ears. These two options for earrings that we’ve found are pretty spot on and accurate:
Another signature part of Princess Peach is none other than her gorgeous long blonde locks. Her hair color is a bright yellow blonde and it extends all the way down her back, stopping just about at the top of her buttocks. Since we’re assuming that most people don’t have the beautiful long blonde hair that Peach does, it’s likely that you’re going to have to purchase a wig for your costume. We’ve found some great wig choices and recommend the following:
- Princess Peach Wig
- Long Yellow Golden Wig
- Long Wavy Cosplay Wig
- Princess Peach Adult Costume Wig
- Princess Peach Cosplay Wig
Princess Peach is sometimes seen with a pink parasol umbrella, that she uses as a way to glide when she jumps. Her umbrella is beautifully detailed and matches the pretty pink color of her dress. While this is not necessarily a mandatory piece of a Princess Peach costume, we recommend adding it in there! Here are some of our top pink parasol options for you to check out:
- Princess Lace Folding Umbrella
- Pink Lace Folding Umbrella
- Parasol Umbrella with Ruffle
- Long Handle Pink Parasol
- Pink Compact Travel Umbrella
The final piece to Princess Peach’s costume is her beautiful red heels that peak out from under her long pink dress. While we don’t see her heels too often because they are covered, we do know that they are a beautiful bright red color and look like closed toe heel pumps. You won’t go wrong with any of these red heel options below:
- Classic Closed Toe High Heel Pump
- Round Toe Platform High Heel Pumps
- High Heel Platform Dress Pumps
- Round Toe High Heel Classic Pumps
- High Heel Platform Dress Pump Shoes
You’re now ready to become Princess Peach
