Princess Mi Amore Cadenza (Wedding Version) - My Little Pony - Friendship Is Magic

In Progress




Previously my "Super Secret Pony Cosplay" But I've let it slip enough time to kinda make that name redundant...

Cadence is my favourite pony <3
So much time and effort and money has gone into this cosplay, I can't wait to reveal her in her finished Glory <3

She's looking promising :D I'd upload more progress photos, but her costume is mostly at my friends house as I'm going to his before Ame >< and I keep forgetting to take photos xD

Well, shucks. Ah wanted to come along to the pony weddin' photoshoot. Ah was the one on the Amecon forums doin' the Braeburn cosplay. Ah did do it on Sunday, too, but I had panels ta go to, an' I didn't get the chance ta meet anypony else. T'ain't fair...

Looks like Cadence won't get done for Aya either...

New Wig!

I've got a new wig :D
Looking better
need to curl and style it, but it's looking good so far :D
Made a start on the wings and I've re-ordered the sash, though we are re-working that slightly.

At the moment, the biggest thing Cadence is miss... Is Shining Armour...
His cosplay is not going as well xD

Wing Work

Started work on the wings for Cadence yesterday when my Shining Armou came down for the day.
We discussed what we need to do with my dress, and we've decided to migrate Cadence's collar piece to a belt, seeing as my dress has some pre-existing detailing over the shoulders, which looks pretty (and it's the only real detailing on my dress as it is...)

The wings have been drafted out, perfect size, gonna be making a start on those next weekend when Shining comes down again, with his manlyness and wire cutters xD
We've also sussed out how to attach them, so that's perfect.

We need to stock up on foam though...

I've ordered another wig, seeing as with everything put together, the wig just wasn't right... Might re-use it for a teen/casual Cadence some time in the future.
I'm thinking of incorperating Cadence's "royal Crystal ponies hair do" into it, but as It's the wedding version I was gonna do, the Boyfriend's not convinced...
I'll show him >:D

I've made a necklace for her, pretty proud of it to be honest. (see image)
Especially as I didn't think it'd work. Mum had a spare gold chain, My boyfriend had a spare gold jump ring, et voila. Necklace done.

We're trying to make some crystal hearts too as the ones we have are too dark a blue. so fingers crossed we can make our own. :S

Shining's back!

Shining Armour's back and Cadence is being dusted up and finished off
Gonna attempt to add curls to the bottom of my wig, sort out some wings that don't stain the back of my wedding dress...
Try to get me to fill out the front of said dress properly... it's gaping a teeny bit at the moment... 'cos I've lost weight...
Ears will get fixed, horn is sorted, make up run through will happen, accessories and Jewelery will get re-worked, and then she'll be done! :D
All set for he D├ębut at Ayacon :D

I've lost my Shining Armour...

simple as...
I've lost my Shining Armour

I'm gonna feel like an Idiot walking about in a wedding dress as Cadence without a shining armour...
Thinking Cadence might be shelved for the time being...

24th December 2012


All coloured and what not

All that's left now is to sort out the ears and horn (and craft some better coloured wings that won't stain the back of my dress) Then CADENCE IS COMPLETE!

ERMAGERD so excited to finally show off my Princess <3

Expect a photo landslide of all my stuff :D

Unfortunately, My Wig didn't arrive in time for the convention I was planning to wear this at.
we got a last-minute replacement, but it just wouldn't work when we came to putting on the costume.
The horn broke, and wouldn't clip into my wig.
The Ears fell apart too, so those need sorting before i can attempt this again
my wings stain my dress slightly, and the shoes need some minor adjustments to make them fit better
Not to mention my Shining armour had costume issues too, and it rained on the day we planned to cosplay which would've resulted in a ruined wedding gown
Otherwise, Cadence is good to go. I'll probably wear her at the next convention I go to.
Sorry Guys

Getting panicy...

My Wig's still not here...
I still need to sharpie-dye sections of it too, so I'm starting to panic.

surely it'll be here in time, but if it's not, I have no idea what I'm going to do...

Other than that, everything's all set

2nd August 2012

waiting on one last thing

The Wig...
That's all I'm waiting on
Otherwise, Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is complete

I have the dress, Sash, Wings, Horn, ears, shoes, jewlery, make up...

All I'm after is a pair of fingerless gloves to wear with the gown, but otherwise, All Changelings are Go!

22nd July 2012

Getting there...

Horn base has been ordered, wig is ending in 3 days time-ish.
the dress is long enough to make the shoes unimportant unless i lift my skirt, so I'm keeping an eye out for gold or Ivory shoes regardless.
Gloves, I dunno where to go with the gloves.
I think I've settled on a set of wings for her now
and A Necklace of her cutie mark is planned too

21st July 2012

Panic Stations!

Despite having been working on this costume since the episode aired, Money-concerns have meant that I've not been able to get things done.
Also, I didn't want to get so far with the costume and find I couldn't get a dress, so now I have the dress, all systems are go!

Proper wedding dress is being used.
Wig in in the pipeline, as long as Ebay behaves.
Horns and ears and up next, and all the little accessories will be slotting into place as I go along.

I also have a Veil :D
I'mma be an awesome Cadence!
