Have you ever seen the cartoon “Adventure Time?” No? Well, if you’re not a 12 year old, that kind of doesn’t surprise me.
It’s a sometimes funny, sometimes touching, always surreal show about a boy (Finn the Human) and his magical, shape-shifting, talking dog/brother (Jake the Dog). They go adventuring around the post-apocalyptic “World of Ooo” righting wrongs and getting into trouble.
One of my favorite characters on the show is Princess Bubblegum. She’s the monarch of the Candy Kingdom (and literally made of bubblegum). She’s sometimes a benevolent overlord to her subjects, and sometimes a semi-terrifying mad scientist. But, she’s always an independent lady and quite a bit of a badass.
Last week’s episode had PB going on a quest through a darkly mysterious wood, into a magic pond, and into a dark witch’s house. And, being the practical gal she is, Ms. Bubblegum dressed appropriately:
The next time I go on an adventure, I know what I want to wear! A sassy, long cozy pullover, comfy pink tights, and practical purple combat boots. And, of course, my tiara.
