How to make a princess crown
We are heading to Oz Comic-Con tomorrow. We had a fun time last year when Emma dressed as Raven from Teen Titans, and after many, many weeks of deliberation, she finally settled on Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time. Princess Bubblegum (PB for short) is made of bubblegum (hence the pink), and is the ruler of the candy kingdom. Not just a pretty face, Emma likes her because she is a scientist and inventor “She’s really smart mum!”. Ok, I’ve been told.

If you are looking for the Princess Bubblegum Crown instructions scroll down, but first let me tell you about how I put the costume together.

How to make a princess crown

I agreed to make a Princess Bubblegum costume with the thought that I could just buy a pink dress from the op-shop and add a lilac collar and sash, but there were no pink dresses to be found so I had to make one from scratch.

How to make a princess crown

I used a couple of vintage patterns, one for the bodice and another for the puffy sleeves. Neither had a peter pan collar so I drafted that myself. It wasn’t perfect but will a little cajoling, it’s passable.

Fabric shopping was a challenge, Miss Emma is very exacting and the only fabric that matched the colour perfectly was a polyester knit at $20 a meter so I bought just 1.3m in hopes that it would suffice. Luckily it was wide and fairly reversible, so I did some creative cutting and only had a few scraps to spare.

How to make a princess crown

So after much cutting, fiddly zip inserting, sewing and hand stitching, we have one very fancy Princess Bubblegum dress that meets her royal highness’s approval.

What do you think? Did I do a good job? I’m pretty pleased at how it turned out, even though it looks simple it was quite a lot of work, 8-9 hours for the dress alone. The crown was much easier (thank goodness).

If you aren’t a good sewist here are some ready made dresses that would work great for this costume.

Emma was really chuffed and we thought it would be fun to do a photoshoot before Comic-con. Rather than a wig we opted for pink hair spray, I think it looks much cuter and there will be no ‘itchy wig’ complaints tomorrow.

2. Cut out the template and test on your model. I shortened the height and narrowed the width of the band.

Making the Crown

How to make a princess crown

Cut a zig-zag shape out of your foam. I made 4 full points and 1 half point (for overlapping). I made mine approximately 8cms tall.
Cut out a long strip of foam and glue it along the bottom of your zig-zags, this will help reinforce the crown so it doesn’t go out of shape.
Paint an undercoat of gold on both sides and let it dry.

How to make a princess crown

Paint a thin layer of PVA glue onto one side of the crown, let semi dry for 5 minutes (just so its tacky). Gently lay a sheet of Gold leaf onto the crown and press lightly with a soft brush. Cover whole crown and let dry for a couple of hours (if you can, overnight).
Once dry use your sponge brush (or cotton wool balls) to buff and smooth the gold leaf and remove any excess. Any cracks wont be too apparent because of the gold paint underneath!
Repeat on other side.

How to make a princess crown

Next the gems! These can be bought at most Art and Craft stores or online! Princess Peach has two different crowns, Her normal one has round gems (red and blue) but I wanted to make the Brawl version which has more Oval gems (pinkey/red and blue). Choose your gems to suit your costume.

I found some really cool jewellery findings for my gems but they were silver so bought some artist quality gold spray paint to change their colour. I then super glued the gems into the findings.

How to make a princess crown

*This step is optional but i wanted mine to look like the original so went that extra mile.*
I printed out the crown and using Transfer paper traced the design onto some thick card. I then cut the stencil out with a tiny craft knife.

How to make a princess crown

Once again this step is *optional*, you can just paint the design on freehand but you get a cleaner finish using an airbrush.

Mix up some dark gold paint (gold + tiny drop of black/brown), I used a ‘flow medium’ to thin out my paint because it helps keep the colour but you can also use water, it just means the water will make it a bit more transparent.
Secure your stencil onto your crown using tape or a weight and airbrush the design on.

After its dry, use some tacky craft glue/glue gun anything strong! and glue your gems in place.

How to make a princess crown

When the gems are dry glue your crown together (putting the half zig-zag at the back) secure with a bulldog clip/paperclip until dry.

I attached ribbon to the crowns base so i could clip it onto my hair, but you could easily attach elastic if you prefer.

For the Nintendo Princess in all of us
I made this crown for my Halloween costume ( I know, I know, Halloween was several months ago. but Halloween is everyday for me =P ). The dress was a white dress that I dyed pink. The hot pink fabric was added on with a sewing machine, and the turquoise pendant was made with a plastic jewel and gold FIMO clay.
