Some thumbs exploring a possible design for Princess Peach if she were to appear in a final fantasy style rpg. I wanted to shorten or open up the dress for a more modern appeal while retaining the bell-skirt silhouette and possible emphasizing her royal appearance with Elizabethan-era ruffs. And that pole thing she's holding is a placeholder for a spear based on her umbrella.

I'd like to take one of these further, but I'm not sure which one. I like #12 the best right now.
