I've been planning on cosplaying Rainbow Dash for almost a year now, but it's only beginning to take off now. I'm planning on really debuting it at Otakuthon in Montreal. (I may take shots with a friend beforehand though for a crossover with Homestuck, since she's being Dirk Strider)

I just have to get a few accessories (Rainbow Socks, Aviator goggles, possibly some aviator shades as well, since I've seen some with colourful frames recently, and a rainbow belt.), and take in a sweater I found for her, sew rainbow ribbon onto the sleeves and sides, and paint on the cutie mark. I have shorts already, but I may change them between now and August.

I got my Twilight Sparkle wig from The Five Wits today. I haven't tried it on yet, but in the package it looks awesome.

I'm trying to decide between the Pinkie Pie from 5 Wits or http://www.epiccosplay.com/22-raspbe...splay-wig.html from Epiccosplay. My head is sort of bulbous with the wig cap on.

I just finished constructing my Rainbow Dash wings today; they're drying in the sun at the moment. I'm also sharpie-ing a blonde wig, since I couldn't find anything online that fit the look I'm going for. I have rainbow stockings, light blue converse, aviator sunglasses, and a light blue activewear tank...it's all coming together!

Yo, I'm currently working on a gala Rainbow Dash costume and I decided to adapt her butt cape/skirt thing into a full cape and it's proving to be a little more difficult than I thought.

Ref:

Right now I'm looking at getting a few yards of white twill and dying the individual strips but that's gonna be kind of expensive and really time consuming. I was wondering if anyone had any better ideas or advice?

I'd say buy about a yard of each color and stitch them together. It will be the easiest. You can always use the excess for other projects.

Or see if you can find some kind of rainbow calico (basically printed broadcloth).

Went to AM2 over the weekend, and after seeing all the MLP cosplays, and watching the first two episodes of season one, I can OFFICIALLY say that I am hooked and will be cosplaying from this series. First choice? Pinkie Pie. >w<

I was boy Pinkie Pie at AM2 this year! XD It was my first Mane Six cosplay and I had a blast! Definitely bringing her to AX. Although I'm also interested in expanding out and trying Applebloom now...

DUDE! My friends and I saw you! XD You were totally rocking out your Pinkie Pie and we loved it even though we weren't into MLP at the time! You were amazing. :'D

I'm currently working on a Pinkie Pie costume (along with quite a few people, it would seem), which I have started calling "Party Pirate Pinkie Pie". It started out as just a Renaissance garb inspired Pinkie Pie, and has sort of morphed and grown more complicated as time has gone on. I finished the skirt, and have begun work on the bodice now, which is getting more complicated as I add embroidery and bead work to it. Of course, just today I decided to add a bolero style Pirate Coat to top it all off. Because I am crazy.

At this rate, I might end up debuting it at Dragon*Con 2013...

Aww, thanks! ^-^ It was super fun! I want to wear it again at AX, but I also don't want to be a one-trick pony (cough). I'm wondering if I can do a boy-edition Apple Bloom in time. I really want a costume with a giant hair bow. :<

I'm super new to cosplay (I actually wrote a big blog about how I don't cosplay because of my size), but I was inspired to be Applejacks at SDComic-Con this year. Thanks for this thread!!

I have a question though, what do you all do about tails or do you go sans tails?

I see a lot of cosplays go without a tail. My idea doing a "fancy" boy Rarity is to make a bustle skit type thing to represent the tail. I know there are other ideas floating around like clip-on wig extensions, things like that.
