It should be fine. You should cut it and see how delicate the raw edges of your hat are. they may be fine as is, may need a bit of bias tape binding, or might even be ok with careful cutting and nothing more. At any rate, cutting a notch in a straw hat won't kill it!

Thanks! I went ahead and cut out the notch and the straw was fine. I used a little hot glue on the edges and it's almost seamless. I'm thinking of stitching some leather cording into the edge of the brim as a finishing touch.

...Newest episode of MLP was fun, and now I need to add Daring Do to my list. DARNIT. So now I've got Scootaloo done, Applejack and Mayor sketched, and going to add Daring Do... I need an intervention. >_<

Intervention? nonono, you just need a bigger sketchbook!

That would be the 1 time I'd LIKE to see multiple Rainbow Dash's at a con, just to see some Scootaloo(s) go nuts trying to figure out WHICH one to stalk! lol

Haha, yes! I want to round up Rainbow Dashes now! I was sad when I took Scoot out to EXP; of all the Dashes I found, only one recognized me. Sad Scootaloo was sad! I want to do a photoshoot with Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash... I have one photo of the two that I want more than anything: Scoot having crashed her scooter and crying over a scraped up knee and Dash comforting her. <3

Aww, I've seen that comic. I promise you I'll do it with you if we happen to ever end up at the same Con as Dash and Scoot

And here's a thought, if you want to be recognized, carry around a Dash plushie and get a bag that has a scooter (or heck full-out Scootaloo) on it.

Ooh, there is a comic of that? I have not seen it! *goes to scour the interwebs*

Rainbow Dash plush! That'd be awesome. I have a scooter for Scootaloo! :3 I need to paint it blue though. I might do a bag when I don't go with my Cutie Mark Crusaders cape. I love that cape~

Your kidding me, I thought that's where you got the idea from! It's by Veggie (sp?) on Deviant Art, s/he has a large number of amazing comics about Dash/Scoot!

Haha, nope! I just happened to actually crash on the scooter (it was a bit rusted and the handles sucked) and thought it'd be a cute photo. Thanks for the dA tip, found the artist and I'mma go get lost in MLP comics now. XD

I'm super psyched for this. I'm gonna try out a hoodie version of DJ PON 3 for the con I'm going to this year (assuming mom helps me sew it), but it should (hopefully) be AWESOME!!!

I was wondering, what does everyone consider to be the most important elements of a Princess Celestia cosplay?

@Odile Dat hair. Celestia's figurine may have the wrong color coat, but it's still got all four colors of her mane. Also, cutie mark visible somewhere.

Hair, cutie mark, wings, unicorn horn, and a tiara. I'd recommend doing a white formal dress as for the clothing (if you don't want to sew it, sometimes you can find bridal gowns at a thrift store). For the cutie mark, you could either add it to the hip area of the dress (applique, paint, beading, or embroidery would work), or some do a necklace with a cutie mark symbol (sculpy or any clay of choice would work well)

I've always thought something incredibly regal or ethereal for Celestia. She is the ruler of all Equestria!
