Princess Celestia IV

By CookieKabuki
My Princess Celestia cosplay worn at Otakon 2012.. definitely one of my favorite costumes so far I had a lot of fun wearing it despite the heat and enormous wings that kept whacking everyone around me.. [sorry about that ^^U]

After I made the Toga I worked on the Staff that represents Celestia's cutie mark which is made out of wonderflex and foam and then details were added with 3D paint and the spay painted with gold metallic finish... helped me build the basic shape for the helmet and also for the wings which then were covered with duck and trimmed Ostrich feathers.. the top of the wing is craft foam with details in 3D paint and lace, the helmet has the same elements plus I added on an earth pony, a unicorn and a pegasus which represent each kind of pony there is on the show.. although I'm not really sure if it shows well on the pictures! finally the wig was hand dyed with sharpies

I also got to be in one of ackson's videos for otakon, I'm only in it for like 3 seconds [dancing with a jetti]but still it was pretty cool since its my first time being in a con video! *o*
