Twenty percent cooler by Rose0fMay Twenty percent cooler by Rose0fMay
THIS IS NOT ME. The model is :iconburloire: as Rainbow Dash 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

Dashie-pants was probably my favorite to work on, but she was the last one I put together because I was really indecisive about her design for quite a while. There's so many directions to take with this character, but I really wanted a cute, sporty, playful Dash. I ended up deciding on a loose roller derby flair for her threads. It was important to me to not go crazy with too much rainbow, because I felt the design would get too busy to be aesthetic. Fortunately we wear similar shoe sizes, so she got to borrow a brand new pair of Chucks I bought a few weeks before this group materialized. But then I had to resist wearing them all summer so I wouldn't get them dirty.

I built Dash's wings along with Fluttershy's. Both are lightweight and relatively durable, and most importantly: glitterbombed. The rainbow wig was sewn, colored, and styled by hand.

Thank you EBK for the fabulous photos, thank you :iconpositori: for helping with the editing, and thank you, :iconburloire:, for making our entire group 20% cooler! <3

I have to agree with that.

Professional, good work making the outfits and the equipment. You're amazing!

She's a lovely pretty Rainbow Dash cosplayer. :iconsoawesomedashplz:

Where exactly did you get the shorts? They're the last thing I need for mine, and those are just perfect.

I do so want that hoody o.o
I'm really amazed at how good you guys have cosplayed the pony's. I've seen some bad stuff out there and was very surprised by the quality of your cosplays. Very, very well done.
