My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Last Updated: 08-15-2012


I ordered and completely gutted a blue jumpsuit because it was a bag on me, then painted the designs on in yellow acrylic. The shoes are the ones from my Sayaka Miki cosplay because they match perfectly.

The wings are made with strong copper and aluminum wires holding up a chicken wire skeleton. The whole thing is covered in batting and then covered in individually shaped yellow feathers. These were much more comfortable to wear than my Runawaystuck Dave wings because I actually had a good apparatus under my suit to keep them up. It was a harness with a wonderflex plate in the back and solid pieces going over my shoulders to keep the whole thing from falling off my back! The rest of it is a lot of elastic to keep it on.

The wig and wefts are from Arda. I sewed the orange wefts into the hairline, then flipped up the whole wig and used SO much hair glue and hairspray to make it all stand up. The goggles (purchased on Etsy) keep most of it up and looking nice. The ears (also purchased on Etsy) are hot glued into the wig. I'm actually really proud of how it turned out since I've never styled a wig much beyond cutting bangs before!
