Twilight Sparkle Equestria Girls Cosplay Costume!

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!
 Do this for both wings...one the mirrored image of the other.
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.
 Thread elastic through the eyelets, and tie them off...
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!
Same technique!

 Here's the back view!

Next for the pony ears and Elements of Harmony!
Same idea.  Fun foam ears hot glued together...
 And then hot glued on the side of a metal headband.
 Using a paper pattern, I just cut out the
 shape of the elements of Harmony crown...
and then cut them out of sparkly glitter foam!
 Hot glued the crown onto the headband...and it's the crowning jewels!

 We made a simple elastic waistband with a heart shaped bow!
Easy cut out like this.
Sewed up the edges...hot glued the center
 Gathered and wrapped the center with more white fabric!
 Hot glued it to the waistband and added some
 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!
 Oh yeah, the boot covers!
We made them just like leg warmers out of fleece!
Hot glued the lace strips in place!  Easy!

Of course, the wash out is the worst part of the night!

A pretty nice cosplay for a little kid. A lot of real cosplayers look a bit more...professional. But for maybe a 7 year old girl most likely on Halloween, it's pretty decent. If I decide to use wings I'm probably going to base my wings off the wing design for my Twilight cosplay at BronyCon this year, so thank you

So many great ideas! I'm trying to make the wings but don't have an eyelet setter, any ideas for something else I could use?
