My Little Pony: Rarity by Malindachan My Little Pony: Rarity by Malindachan
Just got back from Katsucon! Time for some photo spam! :D

One of the biggest highlights of the weekend was doing MLP cosplay with my friends.

The purple wig was from Ebay for only $20. Didn't need to do any styling (LOL THAT ALMOST NEVER HAPPENS FOR ME).

I made the dress using Vogue Pattern 2880 (The longer one here: [link] ). I used a blue ribbon for the lacing down the side; it creates diamond-shaped negative space! (hurhur I am so clever).
Making this dress was a pain in the butt; The pattern itself wasn't too difficult to follow, but it was very time-consuming. Took me about a week because of all the ruffles (The ruffles along the bottom alone took 4.5 hours to hem, and then another several hours to gather and sew onto the skirt). It was my first time sewing with Chiffon, which wasn't as bad as I expected. My biggest piece of advice for this pattern is to make sure you assemble the foundation properly (don't exclude boning, interfacing, & stay tape) and make sure it is tailored properly to your body before attaching it to the rest of the dress. A friend of mine told me from experience that the pattern runs big; so I used a bigger seam allowance for the whole dress, and then I also had to bring in the seams again in the front and back of the foundation.

I haven't really gotten any good full-body shots of the whole dress yet, though here are the progress photos I took after I completed it at home: [link]

I bought a unicorn horn and pony ears from Yaya Han to use with my Midwest MLP group, though I didn't wear them at Katsu since my East coast pony friends weren't using any ears or horns. You can get them on her website: [link]

Not sure who else is in your MLP cosplay group, but I can only assume *Ex-Shadow must be Spike. :iconimseriousplz:
Lovely dress. It really captures Rarity's taste in elegant design. Interesting idea incorporating Rarity's cutie mark with the blue ribbon. C:
