My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic cosplay of Rainbow Dash for YuleCon 2011.
myself as Rainbow Dash
So many colors!
I made the multi-colored pleated skirt without a pattern and the t-shirt was dyed using auqamarine rit dye (1/8 tsp. to a cup ratio). The scarf was also made without a pattern out of fleece. Rainbow Dash's cutie mark was hand painted on using fabric paint.
The ears and wings were made out of craft foam and then painted blue. Wings are being held on via a ribbon wrapped 10 gauge wire back 'harness' with elastic over the shoulders to hold them on.

The design idea I used was loosely based on art by
