Why the Wig? Poe | June 17, 2017 | Neat Junk Well, this arrived in the mail today. We’re using it in an upcoming LoL project. Can you guess what we’re working on? No related posts.

My first thought is it’s something to do with the way Nintendo’s leading ladies invariably went blonde at some point in their careers — Peach and Zelda started as redheads and went brown first before winding up blonde, and Samus, if memory serves, had green hair at first.
Peach and Zelda were always blondes… in the concept art, IIRC. Due to the limitations the NES placed on sprites, though, their hair colors needed to be changed in-game. In SMB3, Peach had black hair, also due to sprite limitations, though there were techniques to somewhat alleviate them by then.
I’m thinking red “Peach” was otherwise only in the US cartoons, which I assume is considered non-canon.
Someone’s working on a Trolls cosplay?
