Nightmare Moon Unicorn Horn Made with Hot Glue and EL Wire
Elentari Cosplay — we recently featured her amazing Howl’s Moving Castle costume — is working on a new cosplay and this time it’s Nightmare Moon from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The pony is the sister of Princess Celestia, and as you might guess by the name, she’s associated with the night. She’s dark blue and black, and her unicorn horn practically glows. Elentari Cosplay took a creative approach and made the horn using hot glue. The material gives the horn a translucent quality so that once she wrapped it with EL wire, it seemed to glow from the inside out. You can see the effect in the below picture.
