Youmacon 2012: Rarity by Malindachan Youmacon 2012: Rarity by Malindachan
Yay, it was worth the wait! :D
This photo shows off all the small details and parts of my Rarity cosplay that I really like <3 (And I'm surprised I got some photos where I didn't look like a total derp. XD I was being too silly that evening, haha)

First of all: NEW WIG! Not long after I started working for Arda, I took advantage of my employee discount and got a Luthien in Grape, and OMG it's so thick and pretty and UGHNNFPOSDJIFPODM. (My original ebay wig was ok, but compared to a Luthien it's pretty thin o.o)

I used a Vogue pattern for my dress, and I chose to use a blue ribbon for the lacing up the sides to represent her diamond cutie mark.
I made the bracelet and hair accessory with Rarity in mind. The bracelet has a blue diamond shaped charm that you can kinda see dangling at the bottom. :)

Hey, I recognize that pattern! The one Vogue I actually had luck with. :P I love the idea of using the laces as her cutie mark. Looks great!

I think your previous version for this cosplay was already very good. But you're right, this wig is way better than the other! Congratulations! Btw, have you been exercising? Your arm looks strong, as if you had been Weightlifting.

It's a GREAT rarity cosplay, you interpret her very nicely. You should add something like little petite gloves to match the dress! :iconraritybrightplz:
