Making Princess Peach’s Super Mario Odyssey Piranha Plant Bouquet
Cosplayer Layze Michelle is working on replicating Princess Peach’s wedding outfit from Super Mario Odyssey. She’s on track to finish the gown this month. She notes it’s the most amount of fabric she’s had to use for a single costume. But we’re focusing on Peach’s bouquet, not the costume. She’s finished her replica of the Piranha Plant bunch of “flowers” and it looks as if it fell out of the video game. Layze Michelle says:
The materials used for the bouquet are: three styrofoam balls, a red matte paint, biscuit clay for the lips and teeth, and the flowers and leaves made of E.V.A foam!
