It...Is...ON by Rose0fMay It...Is...ON by Rose0fMay
THIS IS NOT ME. The model is kalasnacks as Rarity from our My Little Pony : Friendship is Magic group at Dragoncon 2011 (I was Applejack). Some of the best ladies I've ever had the pleasure of cosplaying with! They are all beautiful and charming and magical!

I designed all the outfits and accessories (and built most of what you see) with the exception of Twilight Sparkle. However, all the girls were really supportive and there to offer opinions on progress and such, as well as posting their own progress on the items they took care of. So even though I brought together a chunk of the costume work, it really was a big collaborative effort, and I think that made a huge difference <3

The design choice is probably obvious if you've seen MLP:FiM at all. The main concern with this design was that I live on the west coast, while Betsy is on the east, and I knew I wouldn't be able to fit the dress like a proper ball gown prior to the convention. For that reason, I chose to make the torso of the dress out of a knit so she could walk into it without much fuss. The entire ruffle train skirt and drape are a non-stretchy material.

Betsy tackled this wig all on her own! We tossed hairstyle ideas around for a bit, and ultimately decided on the low side ponytail you see here. She also found some smexy shoes which you unfortunately can't see here, but are visible in other pix in the Applejack gallery :D

Thank you EBK for the fabulous photos, thank you :iconpositori: for helping with the editing, and thank you, kalasnacks, for steping into the role of our resident glamour girl! You were perfect! <3

She's a bombshell! Which is perfect for the character. The simplicity works really well for this.

Is she wearing contacts or are her eyes naturally ridiculously blue/cyan?
