So Rarity is best pony. I thing we can all agree that's just a fact. That is how this cosplay happened.
This particular variant steamed from half joking conversation with my friend Neko Mimi (who does this cosplay much better than me :P). This was meant to be a one shot but it was really fun to act goofy in this cosplay. I also didn't know giant glittery wings that shine like stain glass would get me so much attention. :p
The wings are foam core board and sharpie colored cellophane. They are completely strapless and are held on with velcro and button snaps.
