The animated series Adventure Time is full of princesses. They rule all the lands of Ooo and their ranks include the Lumpy Space Princess, Princess Bubblegum, Flame Princess, and yes, even the Breakfast Princess. She wears bacon, toast, and a pancake and rules the Breakfast Kingdom. Craftster forum user Christine Harvey put together a Breakfast Princess costume for her daughter to wear to Calgary Expo. Here’s how she made it:
It was pretty simple to make, circle skirt over a tutu that I added a wire to for structure. I took the wire out of a pop-up hamper. The toasts (2, front and back) are 2″ foam that I made pillow covers for out of a polyester suede. I safety pinned them to a tank top so she can remove and keep them as pillows.
