Inspired by the piles of fake pink hair I had lying around, I decided to be a pony for Halloween. And I went to see Ween, who have a song "Mr. would you please help my pony" so it was perfect. They even played my song!
I made everything myself from scratch. I used a pattern for the top, but modified it. The best part about it is that it's a corset with boning, but the boning is completely invisible from the outside, the pockets are only sewn through the lining. It worked so well, the top totally stayed in place with no bunching or anything. Everything else is straight out of my brain! It's mostly pink fun fur, with some sparkly blue cotton. The sparkles are metallic and look cool
. The headpiece has wire and floral foam in the ears, then covered with fabric, and the hair on it attached to a ponytail. The tail is hair on a belt of its own, which has a battery pack pocket sewn in, since the tail lights up. The hands and feet have hooves made of fun fur and foam visors. There's also a little pouch with a horseshoe on it in matching fabric, that I used as a mini purse to hold money and ID. The horseshoe idea was suggested by another craftster, so thanks! I like it because I think it looks just like the symbol a My Little Pony would have on their bum.
Here is my flickr album for the making of this costume, too many pictures to post here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fairysari/sets/72157601964199800/
I also participated in the costume sewalong
and posted a thread here
Onto the pictures!
I should also mention that the tail lights up with a string of miniature battery operated lights woven into the hair. Pictures of this part did not turn out well! The batteries are burnt out now, so if I get some C batteries soon I add more pics!
Sorry I don't have pictures of actually being out wearing the costume in public. I forgot my camera, and no one else's pictures have surfaced yet. If they do, I will add them for sure.
Thanks for looking!!!
