Cosplays all over GalaCon

ahh, yesterday I was FINALLY able to finish my cosplay for this year.
Those are hoof stitched! Twilight happy
The biggest problem was the head. As somepony else already posted, I got short hair... and since I w**k for a respected german company *coughDBcough* using blue color is a NO-GO!

So I bought a wig, used one half for my tail and the other one for the head... how can I describe it without pictures... imagine a scarf. A part over the head, covering one eye, the rest goes over my shoulders. I use the elastic for the ears and the glasses to keep the hair in place...
and tons of hair-spray Happy

so anyway, here is a sneak-peak at my costume

Face color? Sounds odd to me.

However, I need help. The wig I got for Galacon doesn't quite fit me, it's slipping from my head even if I get a hair net. Any ideas how to make it hold in place?

When I used a wig for a cosplay years ago, I fixed the wig on the hair net with hair clips.

lots of bobby pins! You'll be able to hide them well and even headbang. Rdlaugh

Beg pardon, a pony of my status does not headbang. RD wink
I managed to fix it pretty well - I realized I had to attach a hair accessory with a comb, so I attached the comb to the wig "permanently" by cutting small slits in the lace and sewing it on. That partially stopped the sliding (talk about eye candy two birds one stone) and the bobby pins I found did the rest. Thanks for advices Cheerilee

Now I'm pretty excited seeing my new cosplay is starting to look like what I meant. I just wonder when I'll do all the changes I planned for Derpy.

Dude. awesome! That mask looks great. RD deals with it

I've purchased a Raibow Dash wig, might get to assemble a casual Rainbow outfit if there's enough time. My "serious" cosplay will be Vinyl though, so this one really would just be something simple to wear on a hot day.

thanks Fluttershy grin
my biggest problem is still the hair. As you can see I´m wearing a mask, its something from my morph-suit. And this stuff is really smooth. Its so smooth that its hard enough to keep the ears in place. A wig wont stay in place. And when I move the head too fast everything would fall down.

hmm...maybe you could use small safety pins for the ears? As long as they don't visibly damage the material of course. Hmm...

as I said, the ears keep the hair in place

Here goes:
That is the shirt for the Cherry Jubilee Cosplay, referring to this fanart by an artist from DeviantArt.
In the fanart the CM is atop the shirt, for my cosplay I put it near the hip where it originally would be. Hard enough to get something that halfway looks like her CM. I shortened the sleeves since they went down to the wrists and embroidered the rims with satin in the assumingly right color. Never did that before and still don´t know how to embroider satin so that you don´t see any seams. Additionally I stitched the wrapping ties together like a bow since every knot I tried just didn´t look good. The bow is at the side and goes around to the back, looks a bit weird in the photo.
Yeah, the shirt looks quite big. I ordered it two sizes bigger since I´ll be in sixth month maternity when wearing it and I need to make sure it will still fit then. :)

I'm thinking of going as Big Mac, but I'm not sure what I should do for the cutie mark. Should I just get a shirt with it on and have the flannel shirt open? Or should I get it embroidered onto the flannel shirt somewhere? Arrgh I just don't know. I've looked at a few others and they both look decent. I'm just going to go with something simple. Cowboy hat, jeans, and the flannel shirt/t-shirt combo. Maybe boots if I can find a pair that I like that aren't horribly expensive.

Well, regarding Cutie marks, I'm getting an embroided mirror iron-on design which I'm going to stick on jeans, one each side of my butt.

That should pretty much be show-accurate Happy

But previously, I was using a larger print on the back of shirt, cut out so the air and sweat can come through thus its not much of a hindrance during warm summer days and it was pretty good too. If your shirt is going to be over your bottom part (jeans, trousers and what not), then the shirt print on the back or each side of the sleeve would be the ideal choice.

Okay, I have a question: What's the best way to color your eyebrows? I've been using colored mascaras before but those are only available in a few color shades and I cannot get the right one.

well, when you want it real good you should use Kajal and a eyebrow-pen.
I had to make them extra thick and black for a cosplay so I...
shaved them... and then I used some makeup-pen. The result was good, yes... but it was sooo wrong ;)

I cannot come to work without eyebrows, it's horrible enough that I've been to a cosmetic salon today and the lady made them like 50% thinner than I'm used to :(
Also, I actually meant bright colors which would go with your pony's mane. Just a eyeliner / lipliner pen doesn't seem to do the trick either.

There are special carnival shops open all year where you can get every kind of cosmetica for theater purposes and the like. Just google if a store like that exists in your town or in the near.
Else buy some shading colors like from Right Stuff, you get those in tiny packages so you don't waste too much just for using for your eyebrows.

Just spend about 45€ (61 including shipping fees) for some Cosplay Accesoires - a faaaaaaaaaaaaabolous looking wig, fake moustaaaaaaaache and 2 hats.
This really can be an expensive fun... Applelie
