Cosplay Wednesday – Super Mario Galaxy’s Rosalina
Move over Princess Peach (and Daisy, I guess): There’s a new princess in town!
Originally making her appearance in Super Mario Galaxy, the princess Rosalina has since made cameos in Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario 3D World, and now the new Super Smash Bros. It seems only fitting that we at Gamers Heroes find some Rosalina cosplay worthy of this royalty — thankfully, IchigoKitty is on the case.
IchigoKitty (or Andrea/Misatonpenpen to her friends) has always been a huge fan of Japanese culture and animation. You could say she is a one-woman army as well, sewing her own costumes from scratch, making stylized wigs and accessories, and handling her own photoshoots since 2002.
IchigoKitty’s Rosalina cosplay was done in 2008. Drawn to how motherly and princessy Rosalina is, she made this dress with silver high heels, a crown made of polystyrene and foamie, and even a star wand made out of wood. Since then, she has shown it off at Megacon 2008, Jacon 2008, Anime Expo 2008, AWA 2008, TNT 2009, and Anime Boston 2010.
