Twilight Sparkle Equestria Girls Cosplay/Costume!
We love My Little Pony!
Last year my daughter was Pinkie Pie in the Grand Galloping Gala Dress
This year we went with the Equestria Girls
Twilight Sparkle in the Fall Formal Gown!
Pretty Spot on!
We found this pink sparkly tube dress and the lavender under shirt at Goodwill.
The boots we found at a yard sale
Here's how we did the wings:
We used fun foam. Hobby Lobby has big sheets of foam...for 89 cents.
We used the equivalent to 5 sheets...and this is adult size.
You'll also need some hot glue, craft sticks, eyelets/setter, and elastic.
Cut a wing shape the size of one sheet of paper...8 1/2 by 11"
Hot glue on a craft stick. This will give the wings structure and strength.
Then add a contrasting color of foam in a puffy shape like this:
Turn the wing over and hot glue on 3 craft sticks.
Lay it on top of the large sheet of foam and cut out a
similar shape using all the foam possible!
Then, sadly, I skimped on the pictures...
hot glue craft sticks across the center of the 2 wings.
Cover with more fun foam.
Use an eyelet setter and make 4 eyelets about 6 inches apart.
Add another smaller foam wing on the backside too.
just measure on your model for this part.
(you can see where I covered the craft sticks with foam in this pic:)
Finished off like so!
Top one is the Twilight Sparkle or other Princess pony wings...
Bottom wings we made for a smaller girl, the Rainbow Dash wings!
Here's the back view!
Next for the pony ears and Elements of Harmony!
Same idea. Fun foam ears hot glued together...
shape of the elements of Harmony crown...
and then cut them out of sparkly glitter foam!
Easy cut out like this.
Sewed up the edges...hot glued the center
fun foam cutie marks to the dress too!
Then it just needs some blue, pink and purple hair!
We did a faux bangs for her...hairspray and a bobby pin!
We made them just like leg warmers out of fleece!
Hot glued the lace strips in place! Easy!
