How to Dress Like Princess Bubblegum

Pink Dress

The first step is to find a pink dress that resembles Princess Bubblegum’s signature style. You can either purchase a pre-made costume or piece one together yourself. If you’re going the DIY route, we recommend checking out your local thrift store for a pink dress that you can alter to look like Princess Bubblegum. Once you have your clothing, it’s time to move on to the next step!

Next, add some ruffles or other embellishments to the bottom of the dress to give it a more princess-like look. Finally, put on your tights and shoes, and you’re all set!

Crown

Every princess needs a crown, and Princess Bubblegum is no exception. You can find a pre-made princess crown at your local party store or online. If you’re feeling crafty, you can also make your own crown using some wire, felt, and hot glue.

Princess Bubblegum’s crown is a little unique in that it has one large gold band that sticks out of the front – almost like an antenna. There is a gem embedded at the top of this prong. You can get crafty and try to replicate this yourself, or you can try this prop crown instead:

Pink Wig

She has long, straight pink hair that extends almost down her waist. Someone would rarely have hair long enough to pull this off, so your best bet is to get Princess Bubblegum’s iconic pink hair by investing in a good-quality pink wig. We recommend checking out your local costume shop or online retailers like Amazon.

Once you have your wig, it’s time to style it! You’ll want to brush it out and then use some hairspray to keep everything in place.

Pink Skin

Princess Bubblegum is (almost) always shown with pink skin. You can achieve this look in a few different ways. The best option is to use high-quality body paint. This will give you the most realistic look, but applying and removing it can be painful.
