|I was originally was going to do Rainbow Dash but realised that I won't have the budget to afford the wig so I'm switching to a pony I can do with my own hair. |
I have always loved Applejack as a kid. She was my second ever pony in '83. So I think I went with a really good choice.
I'll be designing the outfit to fit with the design as well as be a nice and comfy outfit.
My brother does have a hat that will be perfect so he is lending it to me ;)
Belt (Posted 26th August 2011)
Thanks to my amazing brother, I has belt! He looked at the ref images and decided I needed something with an apple on it so he kindly made a belt for me on the Thurs prior to the con. He did a brilliant job. Thanks little bro! X
I has Hat! (Posted 9th August 2011)
Thanks to my little Bro I now have hat. Its a basic straw cowboy style hat with a decorated band. I will be changing the band just prior to Aya.
Accessories build part 1 (Posted 3rd August 2011)
Starting working on a necklace for AJ. I decided against the neck-tie as I have an overactive thyroid which means my throat area looks swollen. My bro and I thought a necklace would be the best way to solve that problem.
Began by cutting out an apple shape from 2mm thick Cintra/foamlux. I will then add edging to it to make it stand out. The apple will then be added to a black lace to look like a cowboy style lace.
Low budget but Yay for finding shirt (Posted 24th June 2011)
Due to life chaos again I've had to lower the budget of this costume to very low. Its now mainly going to be a closet cosplay.
I have found a shirt that will be perfect for this so I will be working it into the design. I forgot I still had it as it was part of another costume from ages ago.
