Character: Pinkie Pie (Gala Dress) Series: My Little Pony Year Made: 2012 Debuted: Otakon 2012 About: I designed both dresses, but *rosieru-chan did the amazing job of sewing them! (with ~LittleDogStar's incredible help painting Twilight's stars) Pinkie Pie was my automatic first choice to do because I can be very, very like like her sometimes (my friends can vouch for it). Plus, extra excuse to EAT MORE CANDY AND CAKE. Yay!
Pros: I love how the wig turned out! I curled it like crazy to get it more fluffy, and I love how the dress looks like a giant cupcake.
Cons: The wig can get a little hot, and the heels hurt after a while, but overall no problems.
It's just bobby pins I glued under the hat! There's a strip going across the inside of it that let me place them there so that you couldn't see them from the outside. Plus it's a really light hat so I didn't have to worry about it falling from weight.
wow amazing cosplay do you mind me asking how you curled this wig? i've seen many ways to do it from dipping it in boiling water to curl and spray it and even using a heat cap. What method do you recommend?
Thanks~! And I curled it using lots of heat and ordinary curlers! My wig is heat resistant, so that made my job way easier than if it wasn't. It started out with little curls too, so I just sectioned out the hair, curled it reeeally close to the scalp, applied heat directly onto it with a hair dryer, waited a good couple hours until it cooled down, and voila! I seperated the ringlets so it could get that messy curl look, then hairsprayed it after so that it could hold it's shape as long as possible. ([link] is a clearer tutorial for Heat-Resist wigs!)
Thanks! I got it from Cosplay.com, it's the Holly wig in Raspberry pink. I teased and curled the heck out of it (it's wonderfully heat resistant, so it curled no problem), and it became an awesome puff ball!
wow<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 ... can u plz help to me by telling me how u made that dress and stuff because i really want to help my sister make her own halloween coustume and she wanted to pinky and i am going to be fluttershy i would love u forever if u were to help me and wow u did so soo good on your dress
Thanks a lot for the comment! Sadly, I don't think I'd really be able to help out, it was my friend who tackled the sewing this time, all I did was design the dress and do a couple things here and there~ Good luck, though!
We did a full group <3 All my friends, it was such a fun day - [link] I am so proud of all the amazing work my friends did. I enjoy being around such a talented group of people. They always show me up though ><! Lol I just barely cling to their tails or something like that. <3
