    Old set of headphones? Check
    Some spare paints? Check
    Evening available? Check

    Result (some touching up to do but I'm happy). Considering these were plain grey when I started too!

    I wouldn't say that, yours look pretty good and goes well with your cosplay which is all that's needed!

    Ugh, didn't realise how hard it is to get white combats - or white trousers of any sort! And I mean white white, not stone white, off white, eggshell, old white etc etc....

    I know, right?! Getting trousers in a specific exact colour is really, *really* hard. I've settled for as close as possible rather than exact (for one thing, rainbow dash colour - ie really light blue - isn't really trousers colour which makes anything even remotely close fairly hard to find). It also doesn't help that I'm colour blind - two blues look almost identical to me and then when I ask someone to make sure that it's the same colour as my light blue t shirt, apparently it's way off! o_O

    So, I went to MCM Expo yesterday- the sixth time I've been to a convention- and cosplayed for the first time! I won't lie, I was a little dubious that I would actually go through with it- and it did take a few seconds to talk myself into opening the cubicle door and go out into the convention after I had gotten changed, but I'm really glad I did. Cosplaying Rainbow Dash for a day was such a great experience, and somehow I got a tonne of compliments and a fair few photo requests, of which I agreed to a couple o_O
    I think the highlight was someone going up to me and asking if they could hug me- obviously I had to agree to that xD

    Cosplay for the first time ever yesterday was great fun and I'm so glad I put as much effort as I did in - made it worthwhile. And it was even better going with friends who cosplayed as ponies too! We took over our little group =D.

    I'm dressed as Vinyl and I even had a working portable "mixing" desk that I used to blast out MLP tunes at the meet and randomly around the convention =D.

    Cool, your friend makes a cute Twilight too. Also, bonus points to lady in the back with the Cat Avengers t-shirt.

    It's my second ever and I'm cosplaying as Luna! I'm nervous. Do you have to act like the character? If so I might be Fluttershy or Marble Pie instead :rolleyes: Marble would be a cute cosplay actually, good shy cosplay for people for whom yellow isn't their colour :D

    You don't have to act like your character but it depends if you want to put on a show for other's to enjoy as such. Acting doesn't come naturally to people so I wouldn't force it if you think it'd make you uncomfortable. That being said, I found cosplaying kinda liberating - I wasn't as afraid to act up a little (especially when you pose for photos) when I was in costume; just seemed less scary, almost like the cosplay was a mask as such.

    A Marble Pie cosplay would be adorable! :3 but yeah, as @BronyMedic said, you don't have to/people don't generally expect you to act exactly like your character or anything. I'm a much more natural Fluttershy than I am Rarity, for example, though I love cosplaying both, but it's all about what you feel comfortable with - of course there are some cosplayers who get REALLY into character, and that's cool, but a lot of the time it's mostly when you're posing for photos, or just whenever you feel comfortable with a bit of acting/roleplaying for fun or whatever. But I always think people should be able to cosplay whatever character they want to, whether they're similar to them IRL or not c:

    Good luck with your Luna cosplay, anyway! Which con are you planning on wearing it to? ^_^

    Thanks ^_^ We're going to Birmingham MCM. The plan is dark blue dress with dark blue or black velvet coat. I already have some black feather wings and a crescent moon necklace, and I'm going to spray my hair blue (cheaper and probably more comfortable than a wig) and make ears/crown/horn from Fimo. I'm really not a roleplayer, I just like dressing up, so I'm glad I don't need to be to cosplay :D

    Where do people tend to get their plush/fabric ears from? I've seen a few around and they're cute ^_^

    Only because Halloween is this weekend. Wondercolts logo for the shirt is by DeathNyan. Best part about the shirt, I can use it as a regular shirt after Halloween. Kind of like those who wear shirts with super hero logos on front, except showing school spirit for Canterlot High. :3

    GO CANTERLOT WONDERCOLTS!!!

    I have more school spirit for Canterlot High than my actual school. :3

    Would love to get the ears/sweatshirt/tail combo myself sometime :D

    Going as Luna to Birmingham MCM next Saturday. Thinking of taking my TARDIS handbag to confuse people :D
