You may still want a small wire frame (bent up wire coat hanger ) in the wing straps would attatch to that. I do not suggest stringing any strap through the foam because it may rip. Safety pins might be ok.

Seconding the wire idea. Then the wire is taking the weight of your movement and not the foam sheets.

I need help finding a Lyra wig. I haven't ever commissioned something, so unless one of you want to explain that, that's probably out...

If you'd be ok with sewing two strips of wefts in yourself, I'd suggest getting a Magnum Long (or similar wig) in possibly Aqua or Ice Blue from Arda, and then a pack of white or silver wefts Since Lyra has mostly pale blue hair, which then has a streak of white in the bangs, and another down the side/back, you'll need to add that in. You can find all sorts of wefting tutorials around - I'm about to go through the process for making a short Twilight Sparkle wig.

Alternately, you could start with a white wig, and then color it with sharpie save for the two streaks... but I can tell you, that is a /really/ tedious task.

Does anyone have suggestions of good ears/horns I can purchase? (Particularly Cadence pink color) I've tried Yaya Han's but they were very heavy and the straps showed pretty bad. I'd like something light-weight and maybe even clip-ons?

Looking at doing a Big Mac of my own soon, because A, male. B, Mac is awesome. C, it's pretty easy to do a Mac gijinka. And D, it's something I can easily pull off fairly well even with my larger frame.

Speaking of... it's generally AJ who wears the hat in the show... but do ya'll think I should get a good western hat as well? And would sewing/embroidering Mac's cutie mark on the back pocket of my jeans be overkill?

I made clip on ears from felt, but they could be made from foam just as easily I cut them, shaped them and then attached them to grips for my wig <3

I think wearing a hat would look good and maybe get a stalk(?) of wheat to hang out of your mouth too
As far as the cutie mark no I don't think it would be overkill, I've seen a big mac cosplayer before and he did it on his and it looked fine!

My friend talked me into finally doing Princess Cadance. She's my favorite pony and I've wanted to cosplay her for a while. It's going to be a rather involved cosplay, so hopefully I can get her done in time for Anime Boston 2014. I'm so excited though! ^^

I'm planning a Princess Luna cosplay for A-kon next year. I have an extensive wardrobe (that many would classify as 'costumey') and can pull many clothing items straight from my closet. A few items I will purchase and I'm going to try to do the wig/horns/wings myself. I'm really excited to do this as my first cosplay because one of my talents is styling, and I think mlp cosplay relies heavily on styling and interpretation.

Hey guys. I just started getting into My little Pony. My friend is making me a Canterlot wedding cosplay as she wanted someone to cosplay with her(Shes doing Queen Chrysalis). Since then Ive discovered a Pinky Pie Cancan/Burlesque episode and I really want to do this as Ive done a Burlesque Skirt before for my Ciel Cosplay. The only thing is Ive seen people call it both a can can dress AND a Burlesque dress and both are VERY Different. I Do think I could make it much prettier as a Burlesque cosplay than a Can can cosplay as I could do a gorgeous Burlesque Skirt with the top ruffle just on the back having feathers on it like hers is. and I dont want to make it overly sexual either(Plus im big im not walking around in underwear XD) So was thinking I could make cute black ruffled pantaloons(mid thigh short sized) and Probably an underbust corset. What do you guys think?

This is the cartoon reference



This is the kind of skirt I could make and have the top of it with purple feathers.


Kinda more like a semi vintage Burlesque type dancer mixed with more modern

And for the pantaloons it would be something like these but black maybe a little bit shorter(Mid knee instead of to the knee and id have a bustier)


Theres also the actual can can dancers but those unless you have your skirt hyked up all day just looks like a regular dress lol.



Suggestions really welcome! I think it would be a fun cute cosplay to do for next year that way id have a year to work on it since ive never made a corset. And I want something fun to work on and make from scratch for the costume contest

I'm looking into doing a Pinkie Pie, where does everyone recommend getting wigs from? I want one really curly and cute, plus I need to match the pinks to her hair. How does everyone add on the balloons?

The Five Wits has a great one, called "Happy Party Giggle Song". I used sparkly pastel fabric paint for my balloons.
