Princess Bubblegum Cosplay Costumes
The animated show “Adventure Time” originally aired as a short produced for Nicktoons, but when the video went viral, the short became a full-length show on Cartoon Network. Among the show’s unique characters, one that stands out is Princess Bubblegum. Her fun appearance makes her a great choice for cosplayers. Start with an ankle-length pink dress with pink ballet flats, and then complete the costume with a long pink wig. You can also add a Princess Bubblegum tiara for extra fun! Don’t forget to include your friends who could dress up as Finn, Jake, or even Marceline.
About Princess Bubblegum
Princess Bubblegum is generally kind and gentle. However, her temper is a force to be reckoned with when she’s provoked. She was the former love interest of Finn, the show’s protagonist, and there are also rumors she was involved with Marceline at one time.

Bubblegum has light pink skin and long magenta “hair,” which is bubblegum. Her usual outfit is a puffy-sleeved pink gown with purple trim. Among many other outfits, she often wears a lab coat during science experiments.
Being made of candy, Bubblegum can deform and reform her biomass, through which she can regain lost body parts and fluctuate her biological age. She usually appears bodily to be eighteen years old, though her actual age is given as 827; she was born hundreds of years before the events of the series from a gum-like ooze, the “Mother Gum.” Bubblegum temporarily becomes thirteen years old in the second season due to losing too much biomass after being attacked by the Lich.
In the seventh season, Bubblegum discovers that she is an incarnation of the “Candy Elemental,” the living embodiment of candy as one of the Adventure Time universe’s four classical elements (fire, water, candy, and slime). Like the Elemental, she can materialize various quantities of candy through her hands and communicate with past incarnations of the Elemental. When Bubblegum’s elemental powers consume her in the miniseries Elements, she becomes psychically connected to all candy in the universe. She can transform others into candy, upon which they lose the memory of their life before their transformation.
Bubblegum is typically very kind and compassionate, having a strong sense of justice, though she shows a dark side when provoked. She is brilliant, responsible for creating the Candy People and various devices, including a miniature time machine. She is fluent in German and Korean, using the latter language to communicate with her friend Lady Rainicorn. Bubblegum is skeptical of magic, refusing to acknowledge it as anything other than “scientific principles presented like mystical hoodoo.”
Bubblegum is highly protective of the Candy People and cares deeply for their safety, but is secretly strained by the pressures of ruling and expresses a desire for freedom. Following a near-death experience at the end of the second season, she starts to isolate herself and becomes overprotective of the Candy People, even exhibiting authoritarian tendencies temporarily in the fifth season. At the end of the sixth season, Bubblegum is deposed as ruler following an election, where she realizes she has made the Candy People too unintelligent. Following the miniseries Stakes, Bubblegum is reinstated as ruler and becomes less overprotective.
