My daughter wanted to be Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony this Halloween. Here's how I made her a costume...

Step 1: Build the Headpiece.

I asked my daughter if I could just chop off the head of her My Little Pony stuffed animal and sew it to a hoodie, but she looked at me horrified and said "No way!" so I used it as reference material instead.

Atop a styrofoam mannequin head, I pieced together a strip of 2-inch foam and 1-inch foam shapes (left over from my Seahawks head costume and my son's Gameboy costume) and hot glued them together in a helmet shape and covered it in a layer of quilt batting. Then I cut out pieces of fleece fabric and sewed them together and fit it over top.

The fact that your first instinct was to ask your daughter if you could chop off the head of her toy gor this project makes you my kind of parent. Well done! I laughed out loud!
This costume is amazing! It looks much better than any of those crappy overpriced costumes that are sold in stores. You are very good at this! Do you sell these? If you don't, you should.
<p>I also need the head pattern is it available?</p>

<p>You are a crafting genius! Me and the little girl are so excited to make Pinky Pie!</p>
Do you think I could get the patterns for the shirt and pants? I would greatly appreciate it.
<p>Love it! She looks fabulous as the most Magical Princess Pony in all of Equestria! :)</p>
Ooh! So adorable. Excellent craftsmanship and instructions. I like the way you have photographed each step in detail too.
<p>Oh my, this is ridiculously cute. The spiral horn is genius on it's own. Very nicely done! </p>
