From 8-bit To Cosplay Beauty, You Won’t Believe How Much Nintendo’s Princess Peach has Changed Over The Years!

Princess Peach is a character in Nintendo’s Mario franchise. Originally created by Shigeru Miyamoto, Peach is the princess of the fictional Mushroom Kingdom, which is constantly under attack by Bowser. She often plays the damsel in distress role within the series and is the lead female character, often being portrayed as Mario’s love interest.

Princess Peach’s initial appearance was drawn by Shigeru Miyamoto. Miyamoto later asked Yōichi Kotabe to redraw Peach with his instructions. He had asked Kotabe to draw her eyes to be “a little cat-like”. With Kotabe’s influence, Princess Peach changed considerably throughout her gaming system. Peach was not a playable character in New Super Mario Bros Wii because a satisfactory mechanism to use her dress was not found, however, she is the main protagonist in Super Princess Peach and is a playable character in most Mario spin-offs such as Mario Party, Mario Kart, and also sports games.

From 8-bit to one of the hottest gamer icons ever! Peach cosplay is becoming more and more popular with both male and female fans of the franchise and when you check out these 21 images you will see why.
