He chose our Carebears a year and a half ago (he wanted he and his sister to be hugs and tugs), and our Ponyo costumes (Sosuke, Ponyo, Fujimoto and Granmamere) he picked Squirtle for himself and helped choose Bellossom for his sister, and Mickey and Minnie were his choice as well. Oh, and he had a hand in picking Dopey, Snow White, and the Prince.

He went through a phase where he didn't want to cosplay anymore. I thought it was over, but then he started requesting costumes again. I'll make him any costume he wants within reason if it keeps him happy at conventions And he has a whole bunch more that he's picked for the future: Huckleberry Pie and Strawberry Shortcake for him and his sister with Mommy and Daddy as Sour Grapes and the Purple Pie Man, Murkey and Lurkey for him and Daddy to go along with the Rainbow Brite and Twink his sister and I already have, and he also requested Get Along Gang for Halloween this year. Cosplay is always more fun with a group! I'm just glad my kids love all of my old 80s cartoons
Your son is awesome! Those are all amazing costume choices.

My friend and I are going to try to get a group together for a con and/or Halloween soon! I've already signed on as Fluttershy and she's going as Rainbow Dash, and my other friend is going as Pinky Pie (we're gonna try to get the whole group soon! (: )
We wanted to do it kind of low-key and affordable though. We were going to make hoodies with the cutie marks, ears, manes, tails, and wings etc.

Does anyone know how to make a good mane and tail to attach to hoodies? What's the best thing to use? (yarn, fabric, anything?) Thanks in advance!

I want to do either Pinkie Pie or Fluttershy Gijinkas. Fell in love with this series even though I never ever thought I'd like a cartoon about ponies.

I am thinking of doing a Twilight Sparkle cosplay sometime in the future. This would probably take less time to put together than my other FiM idea:

Pinkie Pie - The 'Cupcakes' Version!

I'm having a mini dilemma about where to put Pinkie's cutie mark...on one side or just on the front of the shirt? If its on the side, which side? What is most commonly done, and does it matter to people where? (I know, I'm a bit of a perfectionist! >.>)

Also, tails? Do people usually add tails to their pony cosplays?

Thanks guys :P

Well, I know one of the animators did human!Pony designs. He just put the cutie mark somewhere noticeable. As for Pinkie Pie, he put it on the front of the shirt. Though I was planning on putting on one butt pocket as well (just because it seems to be standard to check the butts of cosplayers- stealthily- to make sure they're ponies). I'm putting mine on the right butt pocket.

And I have seen some do tails, some not. I'm personally not doing a tail, as the artwork doesn't have one :3

In other news: My Pinkie Pie is nearly done! Just need to get shoes, and put the cutie mark on the shirt and shorts! But I have the rest!! I'm so excite!

Well, the great thing about gijinkas is that you have a great deal of creative input. Rather than doing some designs, my girlfriend and I made our own versions of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. I put my cutie mark on the front of my shirt, but Kaitlin's shirt was so long it covered her butt, so we just put Fluttershy's cutiemark on the bottom of her capri pants. It was cute and fit pretty nicely.

Unfortunately, I'm having that same dilemma as of now with Rarity. I want to wear a black, high-waisted pencil skirt for her, and having her cutie mark design on the butt of an outfit like that...I don't know! I'm considering maybe having a necklace with the little diamond shapes of her mark, but I'm not sure yet.

I'm sure whatever you decide for Pinkie, however, will look great. =)



edit: A note about tails -- we didn't do any, and I doubt we will for Rarity and Sweetie Belle either. However, we also plan on doing some background character ponies, and if we do, we probably will add tails and ears simply to make them more recognizable, since the main cast don't really need them for people to be able to identify you.

For Rarity, might I suggest something? Maybe use jewels (like bedazzling stuff) and arrange them in the shape of her cutie mark, on the side of the dress? Like... oh god I wish I could draw so I could show you what I mean.

I think jewels in the shape would be a bit more elegant than just slapping on a cutie mark.

Though the necklace idea is cute too!

Thank you so much! Dear lord, suggest away. I think that sounds really pretty as well. I was considering something like that. For Pinkie and Fluttershy, we used iron on transfers, and I simply don't want to do that for Rarity. She's too stylish for that, haha!

I'll look for some diamond shaped gems and see what I can do. If I can't use them on the skirt, I'm sure I can use them on a necklace, so it's a win-win either way!

For the outfit, I was thinking a short-sleeved white blouse with the black high-waisted pencil skirt, with hose and some simple high heels. What do you think?

I'm actually doing a MLP gijinka group too. Though I don't believe we have our date set(I'm thinking it'll be ALA)

Right now, we have a Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and myself as applejack.

If any other applejack cosplayers are looking for a cowboy hat, but don't or can't afford a stetson. Look into a brand called Eddy Bros.

I dug some old hats out of the closet that were my grandfather's(he passed away in 83) inside were two cowboy hats. A black Stetson, and a brown Eddy Bros hat.

The color is a little darker then Applejack's hat. But it works well, and out of respect for my grandpa, I'm not going to cut a notch into the hat.

http://i54.tinypic.com/20u3mty.jpg

The picture is pretty yellow because of the paint and lighting in the room. But the hat is pretty close to applejack's hat color, and the shirt is the same color as her hair. I'll have a different wig for the costume(I just threw that one on quickly)

I'll have a couple other details added in. Like a handkerchief around the neck with an apple painted/embroidered on it, and a vest in the color of Applejack's coat.

I got my jeans too(a darker tan color) and still need to find some cowboy boots.

Also, the rarity cosplayer wants me to draw her boyfriend a genderbent Twilight sparkle. Though the poor guy isn't too keen on what she wants. She wants the more fashionable kind of look. But he wants something more like a graduate, or a wizard. I think I'd rather go with what he wants.

Just trying to decide which pony to do. There are a few Fluttershys already going to ALA, so I thought Rarity, because I love her and she's not as popular. I heard there was no Rainbow Dash for the ALA group and I like her design best- is that true? If there is already a Rainbow, I may as well do Princess Celestia, since I'd have to dye a wig for either one. Decisions... ^_^; In Rarity's favor, I wear white glasses anyway, so could incorporate them into her design. Can anyone who's attending ALA let me know what the group is looking like so I can decide and finish my cosplay on time? Thank you very much!

Why do you care so much that other people are going? Because if you do, then don't even go. We have a group of every single main pony, including various background ponies. XD;; Don't care who others go as. Because honestly, you will NEVER be the only one.

Well, Kreoss's artwork is this. Which he told me that's a lavender knee length skirt. If you like that idea, I'd go with it :3 As long as you make her fashionable, you'll be fine!
