Its gonna be a really simple cosplay, but I think its the wig that will make it (or break it?):D

Journal

Wings (Posted 6th August 2011)

As sometng extra for Aya I made some feather wings :D
Made from blue craft foam and paistakingly glueing a fuck loads of blue feathers, long ones and little fluffy ones
They are so cute XD
They curve inwards but you can see from this pic...

20% cooler

Pony meet (Posted 26th July 2011)

Worn to the cosplay scotland pony meet for lulz.
I am still not happy with the outfit....but I am brainstormign new ideas for Aya....but maybe wont have time
I dunno....I don't really like it....also I just look fugly and fat in pretty much every photo that was taken that dayXD yay!

Wig finished (Posted 22nd July 2011)

I had a near diaster with this...
I wanted it orginally to be long with with some layers to it
I fucked it up horrredeously and the only way I could think to save it was to go for a pixie cut!

I must say....
It turned out far better than I was expecting and suits Dash more! I am very happy!!
I have my contacts as well
block pink/purple lenses! They are quite vibrant :D

Outfit ideas (Posted 17th June 2011)

So I was thinking light blue short, which I add the cutie mark to both back pockets and light blue top which will also have the cutie mark large in the centre.

RAINBOW SOCKS are a MUST XDDDD
I also found some Rainbow suspenders/braces which I LOVE. I think they suit Dash's tomboish nature to a T
Still; thinking up some thing its still very much a WIP, but I am def liking the idea of shorts, or crop trousers

Any comments/feedback would be nice :)

APPOLOGIZE FOR MY FATNESS IT WILL BE FIXED BY AYA

Wig 4 (Posted 9th June 2011)

So thats the blue added!
And such a pretty blue!
It makes the whole wig IMO....
Anyways its still not finished.
Needs tidying up and also needs styling, going to cut it all punky and layer-y hopefully :D

wig 3 (Posted 8th June 2011)

Green and yellow.
Yellow is kinda.... fluorescent almost. I was annoyed when I first saw it, but it blends in nicely....so I don't think its too much of a problem

wig 2 (Posted 8th June 2011)

Orange side bits.

Also I am not styling it until all the colour is added.
So it will be a mess until further notice
Have a good plan for styling

Wig 1 (Posted 8th June 2011)

Right!
To tackle this beast of wig I did a lot of researching
Did I:
*Buy a dyeable wig, part it and dye each section seperately
-No. this is stupid idea. Overly complicated and overly expensive. Also lots of things can go wrong.

*Sew wefts
-I liked this idea alot more. So I went with this
Except half way looking for wefts and different colours to sew, I came across coloured streaks!
And went with those

So using my old purple Saeko wig as a base, I got a clip on red fringe extension and added that. For the beginings! And I think it looks quite good :D
