Princess Peach in the Courtyard by straywind Princess Peach in the Courtyard by straywind
I have the biggest love and hate relationship with this costume. I poured countless hours into fixing it up around the bodice and the skirt, but it's still a little bunchy. Oh well. One of these days I'll make a complicated costume and I'll be 100% happy with it. XD

Still, the photos from my friend EleventhPhotograph that he took at Otakuthon in the summer are really nice. You can't quite see the full skirt, but I changed the hoop skirt to a 4-hoop instead of 3 so it's a little more poofy.

Looking forward to wearing this again next year and getting some shots maybe in a park.

Thanks! It's definitely the highlight shot of the shoot that I did with Mike. This costume really kicked my butt, but I'm glad that I took some time over the summer to fix it up.

I can see the adjustments you made! The collar does look quite a bit better now. The bodice looks better formed to your frame as well. Good job with the fix ups! You make a terrific Peach! I love the backdrop as well! Very princess like indeed! XD

Thank you! I honestly really should have taken apart the bodice entirely to truly fix the puckering, but what I could do I'm very happy with. The collar is a million times better than how it looked at AN. I'm also happy that I went up a step with the hoop skirt. At least I could sort of walk in the dress without pulling up my skirt. XD
