|So, originally when it came to My Little Pony I wanted to cosplay as either Fluttershy or Princess Celestia ( even though most people think of her as a troll). An then season two came along and I was blown right out of orbit when Princess Cadence made her debut in the My Little Pony: Royal Wedding. I loved her character so much, and she reminded me so much of some of the Disney princesses in the early years like Princess Aurora and a little bit of Jasmine somewhere in there. She ended up being my favorite pony in the entire series and I knew I had to cosplay her.|
I wanted to do an original take on Cadence but I opted out the wedding gown, since everyone already does it. I ended up making my own little take on a default gown for Princess Cadence. The bodice is actually a pink quilters cotton that has crystalline sparkles in it and I thought it was perfect for Cadence. The skirt is just a gathered skirt that's made from some satin I found at Joanns. I adorned crystal hearts everywhere on her, on the belt, bodice and the shoes.
The wings aren't exactly my favorite part of the costume. I bought them online and I was really disappointed in them, but they were okay enough to wear to Anime Expo. I plan to make my own pair and get a horn circlet from Firefly Path.
The crown is made of gold card paper, backed with craft foam for support then adorned with sequins, pearls and hot glue designs.
The dress isn't as poofy as I originally planned, but I'll try to invest in a petticoat later on for that. But I love the hell out of this dress, it's so pink. ;D

Cadence is getting an update (Posted 18th November 2013)
So....I plan on wearing Cadence again after Anime Expo. I think after Anime Expo I didn't feel as great wearing the costume, a lot of the elements were very last minute and I never really got to do what I originally planned with Princess Cadence in that short timespan I spent working on her.
But now I think it's about time I give her a fresh new update. :) Just like Ariel I'm going to be reworking her quite a bit so she'll look brand spanking new for Anime Los Angeles this coming year. All I know so far is I'm planing on getting a new wig, a better pair of wings and a new horn and ears. I may get a tail as well for the back of the dress ;D
Cutie Mark Pendant' (Posted 24th January 2013)
The pendant was kind of a mixed bag. I initially was kind of hoping that the heart would actually be a bit larger in size but I really shouldn't complain about it since it ended up being the perfect shade of aqua anyway :3
The gold filigree design on the sides were made from leftover sculpy clay that I salvaged from my Ariel shells. :) I'm quite happy with it but I really think I might change the chain. I even placed one of the spare hearts on the bodice of my dress ^ 3 ^
Ordered a bunch of Stuff XDDDD (Posted 1st January 2013)
With some of the money I managed to score from my aunts after Christmas ended, I literally went on a Princess Cadance shopping spree XDD. I already ordered my rhinestones for the cutie mark Pendant, my wings and my new Cadance Wig which I managed to find a couple days ago :3
This one was a lot more reasonably priced and sort of had the shades of color I was looking for. XDDD Now I just have to buy my Shining Armor his wig, my boots, tights, gloves, fabric and pattern for the skirt. Oh! And the stuff for the crown :3
Horn and Ears complete ^^ (Posted 1st January 2013)
Just finished the Horn and ears out of some sculpy that I had lying around leftover from my Ariel bra. ^^
I even added little clips on the ears so they can sit on my head ^^ But I put them in after this was taken X3
Rhinestone Detailing (Posted 30th December 2012)
I forgot to upload a close-up shot of my Cadence bodice :o
So here it is. All hand glued
Progress update (Posted 14th October 2012)
I haven't been able to get much done for this costume as of yet. For now I actually just finished my tiara and I already have my horns baked and are ready to be painted :D
Lot of rhinestones were used while I was making the crown. I just hope I have enough for my Ariel fin and the skirt for Cadence by the end :|
