Costume Information

Description
I've been in love with MLP:FiM since a friend recommended that I watch it. Rainbow Dash isn't my favourite pony but my hair at the time was blonde with rainbow coloured tips which is where I got the idea from. This was also my first ever cosplay so I liked that I could use my own design for her which would allow me to edit it if I found something too difficult or couldn't source what I needed for the outfit.

I chose a letterman jacket as the main piece for the outfit because while I wanted it to be an athletic themed outfit, I also wanted it to be stylish to a degree and letterman jackets were trending shortly before. I also thought it was more stylish than say a football jersey. I added foil rainbow lettering to the back of the jacket which reads DASH and I made custom patches with designs from the Wonderbolt Academy where Rainbow Dash trains in the show.

For the wings and the ears I used this tutorial except I used foam instead of cloth as I wanted them to have a very cartoony effect.

For the shoes, I decided to use a pair I already owned to save on money. Those were my Superman high top converse. They are red, blue and cream which matched the outfit and also I thought that if Rainbow Dash was going to sport any brand on her clothing then Superman fit her well.
