Rarity from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

I sketched Rarity for months but only got started on construction a week before Katsucon. What is wrong with me? Part of it was that, since it was my own design, I kept changing it. I was also being VERY picky about the main fabric I used for the dress. I finally found the perfect silk brocade! The petticoat was a bit of an experiment, since I didn't want it to look like a standard petticoat. My Opalescence plushie got quite a bit of love (I think I'm addicted to making plushies) and my wig was wonderful. Make-up was REALLY fun, it was so nice to do a character for once where I wasn't trying to look like I wasn't wearing make-up. The best part about Rarity though was for sure the shoes. I constructed McQueen knockoff armadillo heels and people were asking me if they were REAL. I was so flattered! They were excruciatingly painful, but beyond worth it.

I personally prefer my pony cosplay (alliteration!) without horns, ears and tails. So when I designed this look, I went for what Rarity would wear if she were a person - I decided to give her the tiara in order to have something evoke the horn without actually having one. That's the great thing about original designs - designing them to look the way you want is so much fun!
