Casual Cosplay: Princess Bubblegum – Adventure Time

12 September 2014


I’ll completely admit, I’m way late to the game with Adventure Time. I don’t know, it almost just seemed a little too… silly? dumb? … just not me. But then, well, I finally got around to watching The Walking Dead (which, yes, I was totally late to the game with as well)… and I needed something to balance out all the zombie gore. And well, surprisingly, Adventure Time was the perfect mashup for it.

I initially really liked the dress for this, but now I sort of think it’s a little stiff. But, 1) she’s a princess, so maybe it still works, and 2) it’s really the shape I like.

Princess Bubblegum casual cosplay

Top A nice, slightly structured dress with a slight flared skirt.
Accessories Purple belt and chunky necklace to reflect the detail in her dress, yellow headband instead of a crown, and a Peppermint Butler tote.
Shoes Pink flats to match the dress, just something simple.

Again, like all my posts like these, this is just a concept board.

It’s been a while since I’ve done Casual Cosplay posts, but I’d like to get back into them. So I’m taking requests of characters or shows you’d like to see me cover.

  • I think the dress channels PB pretty well. I’d love to see what you can dream up for a Marceline casual cosplay.

    • Erini

      I definitely want to do a Marceline outfit! 🙂

  • Cute dress! Although my favourite Bubblegum Princess outfit is her lab gear.

    • Erini

      Ooh. I could totally do a lab-ready Princess Bubblegum! 🙂

  • Desiree

    Love the dress for PB. I too would love to see Marceline or LSP.

    • Erini

      Thanks! I’ve got my Marceline ideas going. She might be up soon — I’ve got 2 others scheduled now, so that’ll give me time to have fun with Marceline. 🙂

      • Desiree

        Woo!! Can’t wait, and OMG yes Lady Rainicorn!!

  • I want to cosplay Lady Rainicorn. I have the perfect planned outfit. Also, I definitely put Adventure Time off for a long time, but I walked in on Jared watching it with a bowl of Cheerios and I was immediately hooked.

    • Erini

      I’d love to see your Lady Rainicorn outfit!
