I did not go through a time tunnel (though bringing up time travel makes me sad since Doctor Who is no longer on Netflix); it just took me this long to post the update. This post is a continuation and fruition of Cosplay Confessional – The Halloween Edition, where I decided I would be Rarity Unicorn from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
You’ll find links in the original post for all of the accoutrements I needed. This post is more about the finished result.
Let me just say that 2015 was far, far better than 2014. I actually succeeded in pulling of this costume or at least being able to fit into it. It was also sort of a group costume effort with two of my married friends being ponies, too. My friend Heather was Rainbow Dash and convinced her husband Tommy to go as Fluttershy (a pony I considered myself, but then rejected because yellow wings would be too complicated).
I’ll first show some of my preliminary photos before the costume was entirely put together and talk about the process. Since it’s been several months, I’ll try to remember exactly what I was doing, but I don’t trust my memory, and you certainly shouldn’t either. I also apologize for the fuzziness of the photos. I believe my phone was being held together with duct tape and prayer at the time, and that obscured the camera lens.
