"Fancy" Rainbow Dash hairstyle ideas?

There's a My Little Pony-themed formal ball at the next con I'm attending (which is in a mere week) and I've been totally blind-sided by my friend who says we are in fact attending, and so after working out the dress issues, I'm Rainbow Dash. (I don't watch this show, so I know nothing about this character.)

My question is, what do you guys think I should do with my hair, that could work for the My Little Pony theme but is still formal as well? Because of the timing, a wig is, unfortunately, 100% of out of the question. I'm not opposed whatsoever to adding a little rainbow piece in my hair, but is that tacky for a formal ball, despite the character?

So, does anyone who knows this character know what I should do with my hair? Pictures of suggestions would be very, very helpful and oh-so appreciated!

Just to give you guys an idea of what I have to work with, here's my hair --> http://i630.photobucket.com/albums/u...ps133606c3.jpg

I can see her with a fancy braid. You could weave colored extensions through your hair, and tie it off with something gold (like she wears to the Royal wedding). Or add gold laurel wreath pieces, like she wears to the gala in season 1.

Rainbow Dash would is a tomboy, but she isn't against getting a bit dolled up. I'd pick a (relatively) unfussy cute updo, and then add on a multi-coloured (doesn't have to be "rainbow spectrum" per se) hair accessory.

i agree w the idea of putting in colored extentions and then either a braid or a cute idea would be a messy bun with some light curls in the front. def add some gold hair pieces.
