These Costumes Turn My Little Ponies Into Warriors

Warrior My Little Ponies 1

The four-legged stars of Hasbro’s My Little Pony are rather awesome, and though they certainly fight from time to time, I wouldn’t call them warriors. This large cosplay group that got together for Katsucon 2015 are changing that image. These cosplayers gave the Mane Six and other My Little Ponies an armor upgrade, complete with helms and shin guards.

Dhareza Cosplayza dressed as Shining Armor, Twilight Sparkle’s older brother. The armor was designed by Becka Noel, and Dhareza made it from Worbla and EVA foam. I want to highlight his costume in particular because if you look down to the second picture below, you can see how he added in a dramatic background. The Kratos cosplay I showed off earlier today featured a real background that the cosplayer creatively used, but if that’s not an option, this photo of Shining Armor as a warrior shows what you can accomplish digitally. As someone who often notes how photography and location can complement cosplay, I always like seeing these kinds of examples.
