Pinkie Pie

I am struggling on how to make her hat and if I do the hat will my ears still work on my wig. Here is a reference picture.

It's a pillbox hat with fake candles on top. Google search tutorials on pillbox hats. You could put it on hair clips, a bandana, or a ribbon. Hell, you could even sew it to the wig.

I'm not sure what the issue with ears is, as I only see regular human ears. (Unless you have no earlobes and needed to use prosthetics...)

She's talking about the horse ears that Pinkie Pie has. She's probably adding them onto the costume and doing a pony gijinka version rather than a human version of Pinkie Pie.

Yeah sorry, the pony ears, would it still come across as pinkie pie without the ears and just the hat?

Well this is one of the most popular version of Pinkie, so yes it would still look like pinkie. (:
But also, it would work fine with Pony ears (I personally like using ears, I think they look extra good.)

Thanks, I am altering this design a bit but it's the general idea I'm going off of Glad to know I will be recognized since Pinkie Pie's voice actor(Andrea Libman) will be at the con!

If you have her cutie mark plastered all over the outfit it will be super recognisable to fans

Look at the wig with ears on. Now make a quick cylinder of cardboard from a cereal box and see how it looks together. Maybe you want to wear it over an ear to get a jaunty angle? Maybe you want it in front of one ear? It is your artistic choice
