I even made Adventure Time cupcakes for my son's Drama troupe to sell as a fundraiser during intermission at one of their plays. (shout-out to Deviant artist stellarowan, whose design I emulated.)

We were planning on putting together a Princess Bubblegum costume for our daughter for Halloween, but slowly I realized she would really like to be Fionna a little bit more than she would PB. Fionna is an alternate female version of Finn in a gender-bent episode of Season 3's Adventure Time, called "Fionna and Cake."
Here are my finds:
I started with Etsy, of course! Although there are many Fionna hats on Etsy, I thought Epic Costume's version looked the best. The backpack was purchased from Izzy's creations. It's a simple felt pack, with an opening at the top. I think it'll be fun for our daughter to use as her trick-or-treat bag.
The top was next. I searched Gymboree, Gap, Children's Store and Old Navy. I found some on-line at The Children's Place (not available in the store though; I checked) and The Gap, but eventually got one in-store at Old Navy.
The shoes and socks were quick Payless purchases. I still have to add the blue stripes to the tops of the socks.
The biggest problem was the skirt. Fiona's skirt is plain. No ruffles, no seams, no frills. I checked everyone both on line and in stores, spending my lunch breaks hunting for a week. Etsy, Ebay, Gymboree, Gap, Old Navy, The Children's Place, Macy's, JC Penney, Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, K-mart, Hot Topic, Dillard's. You name it, I checked on-line and/or in stores. There were some my sister found, but they were in China or the UK, and they were bulk-orders or too expensive.
I ended up having to settle for a skirt that had a ruffle from Wal-Mart. I still have my sisters out there hunting and I have my eyes open too everywhere I go, just in case I find a non-ruffly one.
When Isabel walked into our guest room where I had laid everything out, she gasped "Wooooooow!!" and immediately ran to get the hat.
Isabel as Fionna.
