Another Friday, another post for The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick‘s awesome linkup! This week’s theme:
Characters I’d Love To Dress Up As
I haven’t actually done too much dressing up in my adult life. I did have one year where I went all out with a Rocky Horror costume, which was both terrifying and liberating all at the same time. But other than that, there haven’t been many! I’d really like to change that in the coming years, especially as my daughter is now old enough to really love dressing up. I would love to do family Halloween costumes!
1. Princess Peach
My love for Princess Peach has nothing to do with the Mario games. I developed a love for her thanks to Super Smash Bros. Melee, where she debuted as a playable character. There is something so inherently satisfying about kicking ass in a poofy pink dress and heels. And let’s not forget my favorite part: smashing someone in the face with a cast iron frying pan. As a housewife/SAHM, I just find a cast iron frying pan hilarious as I can see using one as an actual weapon if necessary (those bad boys are so heavy!).
2. Dark Elf/Drow
This would probably be the most challenging to ever do. My biggest concern: How the heck would I darken my skin without being completely (yet unintentionally) offensive?? Plus, many of the costumes have a lot of complex armor elements of which I have no clue how to make. But I’ve always loved the Drow and think it would be awesome to portray one someday!
As one of my favorite characters of all time, I’d love to dress up as her! My friends and I want to have a Final Fantasy themed Halloween one year, where we each pick our fave FF character to portray, so I think this one is doable at some point
4. Wizard from Harry Potter
This one is definitely doable. My hubs and I both want to dress up as a wizard (he’d be Ravenclaw, I’d be Gryffindor) and we have our little miss be our owl!
Even though I love the Legend of Zelda series, I don’t really have a desire to dress up as Princess Zelda. I’m all about Link! Plus, I’d have fun making different items from the games! Ideally I’d make this a family costume, but I’d have to do some serious convincing of the hubs. Though I think he’d make an awesome Ganondorf. My little could either be Princess Zelda (she would love that) but I’d really like her to dress up as Tingle! I think it’d be so cute! And in case you don’t know Tingle, here’s a pic.
Seriously, how cute would that be for a four year old?! Though I’d probably leave off the goatee. 😉

A Final Fantasy Halloween themed party sounds like so much fun. Can I please please please be invited?? 🙂
Ha, sure thing of course! 😀
Naww, I love it when people incorporate their kiddos into costumes! It just takes adorable to a whole new level. Awesome list!
Thanks! I do hope my little approves of me putting her in all sorts of geeky costumes over the years. 😀
I love Princess Peach! And of course Harry Potter!
I’ve wanted to do an updated Peach with a group for a while now. Just would be too much fun. I’ve also seen a really good Steampunk Peach. I think doing a Melee Peach would be awesome! Frying pan and all. 🙂
Ah, I bet the Steampunk Peach was amazing!! I always love steampunk costuming.
I LOVE Princess Peach, I’ve always wanted to dress like her, but never want to wear a wig 🙂 Also I need to be a Wizard that is a fandom must right?! xx
The wig would be my least favorite part. I have long (darker) blonde hair, so maybe I could dye and style my own! Think I’d have to recruit some help haha!
Great list! Dressing up like the Drow would be amazing!
Thanks! They just look so cool!! I feel like their skin in more grey than brown, so maybe I could get away with it? But I’d hate to accidentally offend someone!
Oh yeah, that is something to keep in mind. If you made sure to do something that was obviously gray, so making it obvious it is not a skin color actually found in nature, I think it’d be fine!
