Peter Pan- Neverland Song by twinfools Peter Pan- Neverland Song by twinfools
My cosplay of Peter Pan from the 2003 Peter Pan movie.

This is one of my dream cosplays. Simple, but I remember wanting to make this costume while reading my mom's edition of Peter Pan. This must have been an older edition, though I can't recall the illustrator. All I know is that Peter was dressed in leaves and his hair was black, curly and wild. I liked this version of Peter Pan far better than the Disney version (a version that I still like, just not as much). Did I mention that I was a Peter Pan fanatic when i was younger? To this day it's still one of my all-time favourite stories (and Peter Pan is one of my all time favourite characters).

When I saw the 2003 version of Peter Pan I recognized Peter's look as being similar to the book I read when I was younger. I loved the way they told Peter Pan in that movie, the visuals in particular are the best take on J.M. Barrie's story in my opinion.

Costume made by me, fake leaves and pan flute bought locally.

**CRAP I put the vine rope over the wrong shoulder, I knew that something felt off D: oh well, just an excuse to wear this costume again ;)

I love Peter Pan, and especially the 2003 version. It had a huge impact on me and my friends, I still get goosebumps listening to the soundtrack. Thanks so much for taking on this costume, you did a spectacular job! Do you ever go to Anime Central in Rosemont IL?

^^ Finally someone who understands my love for Peter Pan. I was practically obsessed with the 2003 movie once I saw it, still am. Of all the cosplay of him, I'd say yours is one of the most accurate.
It's described that he wore a 'suit of leaves' not a green suit and tights. And in nearly every adaption to the book besides Disney's, his hair is blond, not red. 

True though. I think the 2003 version is so much better than Disney's, as much as I like both. And the visuals and just the general look to everything seems much more realistic than anything else. I still remember staying awake at night hoping Peter Pan would come and take me to Neverland. :)

Neat to read your comment.  I think if I were to be honest and define my feelings from way back in the 80's, I'd have to say I had a huge crush on Peter Pan.  I couldn't decide if I wanted him as my best friend, or to BE him.


I clearly remember reading (yet another) illustrated book of that story and running to Mom and telling her I thought he was the coolest kid ever... and then tip-toeing back to my room feeling totally weird when she just looked at me funny for saying that.  I think right at that moment, I realized I really WAS a 'strange' kid.  She ended up thinking I was a cross-dresser, but all I wanted was to wear tights like my hero :).


Anyway, your design is awesome.  Thanks for sharing it!

A gorgeous photograph to boot.

I owned that book also, but I can't recall the illustrator, my mum bought me a copy as she had one when she was younger. The wendy drawings in it were gorgeous when she was also dressed in foliage to accompany peter, I seem to remember the tiger lily design was stunning also.

I'm sort of curious to know if you've read Brom's "Child Thief" Its a peter pan story but different and a lot scarier in some ways. If you haven't read it and you have time you should totally check it out of the library ^-^
