Say what you will about My Little Ponies, they present plenty of fun challenges for cosplayers. There’s the wig styling, ears, wings, and horns to consider. Cosplayer Flying-Fox made it more complex by designing a warrior take on Rainbow Dash’s Grand Galloping Gala dress. To bring her drawing to life, she had to airbrush the white wig with liquid acrylics, sew the skirt and corset, and make armor. She made the chest piece with Worbla and painted it to look like metal. You can see more in-progress pics at her Facebook page.
