My cosplay of Sonic Rainboom Rarity from A-kon 2012!
Striking the pose, only, luckily, this time I'm not following in Icarus' foot steps, ahaha.
I need to set up a proper photos shoot with a real photographer instead of trying to pose myself and pose The Boyfriend to take the photos, lol. It just doesn't work, as illustrated by my crooked head dress! Gah.
I was in so much pain I didn't realize I wasn't smiling properly. At the time I honestly thought this was a genuine smile on my face, instead of a weird plastering of lips, ahah.
This isn't a direct translation of her show outfit because she, unlike myself, is a pony and ponywear isn't well suited for humans, so I've found. I felt like they were going with a showgirl theme so I ran with it!
I don't know if I can go back to cosplaying non-fabulous things. I loved all these crazy bright colors and the sheer outrageous fabulosity of it all.
Before I get bombarded with questions, my wings are made of cellophane and took just under 40 hours to craft!
I may be opening up wing commissions later this summer so stay tuned if you are interested or follow me on tumblr (srsRazzmatazz) or facebook (Razzmatazz Cosplay) for swifter notification.
I've also got cosplay progress posted on both sites, including the concept sketch I drew up and the wings in various stages of completion.
