Oh... this outfit.

We all woke up at 7am to START make up and costumes and didn't finish until 1:50 pm, which was good cause our shoot was 2pm.

So after extensive bodypainting with the airbrushes and all the extras of eyelashes and absurd nails before costume, the group spends something like four hours in the shoot with two different photographers. There was a lot of us lol.

We ended up with a little less than an hour to get to the artist alley and dealers hall before it closed. making us book it everywhere we went. Of course, on the way down from getting my money and such out of the hotel room is when I got stuck in an elevator for an hour and completely missed the rest of the con.

My Little Pony was, by far, one of the most challenging days to be had at the convention. I enjoyed the way it looked and how everything turned out but I don't think any of us will be doing the full body paint again any time soon. lol

I love the details on all your costumes. I also love the honesty--not many people I've encountered at cons will talk about the problems they encounter, like no pockets, or how bloody long some costumes take. Or admit that, after one day of huge costume and makeup (like body paint), you don't really want to do it again soon. I think they worry people will be let down. I think it prepares people (oh, how I needed the no pockets purse reminder my first time! lol) It also makes the idea seem less daunting to me, in some ways--I don't think I would ever want to take the time to do full body paint, for example, but because you have and other people talked honestly about how to do it, I know that I COULD.

Oh you totally could! Admittedly, full body paint can be a huge pain in the arse but I really like the way dedication looks. Just remember to ALWAYS seal your body paint. Nothing is more frustrating than having hotels look down on cosplayers because they get their body paint all over the walls, rooms and furniture. Trust me, I've talked to various hotel staff about it and they all have disheartening things to say about grey and orange body paint smears being left everywhere T__T! So, yeah, just remember to be careful and attentive to all details and the effort can be rewarding.

Your Rarity cosplay is diffidently one of the more unique and creatively executed I've seen from DeviantART. And with that said, is there's any chance we'll be seeing more pictures related to it (from this con of course)?

Also, just as a bit of nerd sharing, my only (at least for now) contribution to MLP fan art: [link]

LMFAO I love Rarity's face there. She looks so overjoyed.

I don't have a lot of these photos because our group was so massive, individuals didn't get a ton of work. I have a few of Apple Jack and Rarity together that I haven't posted but that's because I'm a little nervous about posting them. For no reason really. lol
