DIY Rainbow Dash Costume
Miss P is obsessed with My Little Pony. Who can blame her? Their tales of friendship, catchy songs and upbeat stories are hard to beat. It’s difficult to narrow down who her favourite pony is – somedays she will tell you it’s Pinkie Pie. She likes her because Pinkie is silly. Other days, her favourite is Rainbow Dash. Rainbow Dash is loyal and always up for an adventure. Add that in Rainbow Dash’s signature rainbows, and there’s no wonder who she chose for her Halloween costume this year.
I admit, I was a little stumped on where to get all the gear to trick out a pony. So I called up my favourite costume expert, Alison from FeeFiFoFun.ca for help getting inspired on how to make a Rainbow Dash. Thankfully, she knew just who I was talking about and already had several pieces in store, that I believe really make this costume sing!
Costume Pieces Needed:
Making Custom Rainbow Dash Wings
-2 pieces of Blue Craft Foam
How to Make It Happen:
Search ye old Google for a template for pegasus wings to trace & print a template. Cut out light blue craft foam front and back pieces and glue together over the wire and nylon wing with E600 glue. Trace the textural pieces out of remaining foam and glue on the back piece facing out. Attach Elastic Thread – two loopholes to size to fit over your child’s shoulders.
Rainbow Dash Makeup
Darken eyebrows with black eyeliner pencil, add curved upwards lines as eye lashes
Add pink glitter blush to cheeks in a circle
