Biography


Princess Peach has baby blue eyes and yellow/blonde hair. Peach is a lot taller in height in comparison to other characters. Princess Peach has a fair complexion and a pointed and defined nose. Peach has thick flowing blonde hair however is sometimes described as yellow hair. Princess peach is usually seen wearing her signature floor length pink dress with elbow length gloves. When Mario sports instalments started with Mario golf and Mario Tennis for the Nintendo 64, the sports uniform was the same as her trademark pink dress, just a bit shorter and without the gloves which were replaced by tall socks.

In Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games Peach wears a winter outfit which include white winter gloves and boots with pink lace. The outfit itself includes long purple sleeves and pants with a white line accenting each limb. The outfit is designed like a mini-dress with one white ring at the bottom. Peach's winter outfit still includes her standard jewellery including crown.

Peach is portrayed as Mario's love interest and the frequent damsel in distress. She is also good friends with Luigi, Toad, and especially Princess Daisy. Super Mario Bros was Princess Peach's debut appearance. Bowser had invaded the Mushroom Kingdom, and transformed its inhabitants into blocks and other objects. It was known that the Mushroom King's daughter would be able to lift the spell therefore he kidnapped Princess Peach (then known as Princess Toadstool).

Mario and Luigi realised that there was a threat and went to rescue the Princess. After completing all seven castles and defeating the real Bowser, the Mario brothers finally found the princess and rescued her. As a reward Princess Toadstool gave Mario a kiss on the cheek and thanked him. In Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Princess Toadstool is kidnapped by Bowser again, and again rescued by Mario.
