Last year my daughter was Pinkie Pie in the Grand Galloping Gala Dress.
This year we went with the Equestria Girls
Twilight Sparkle in the Fall Formal Gown!
If you haven't watched Equestria Girls...it's pretty cute. It sure makes dressing up like the ponies easier...
since they are momentarily in human form.
We found this pink sparkly tube dress and the lavender under shirt at Goodwill.
The black boots we found at a yard sale.
Step 1: Wings!
We used fun foam. Hobby Lobby has big sheets of foam...for 89 cents.
We used the equivalent to 5 sheets...and this is adult size.
You'll also need some hot glue, craft sticks, eyelets/setter, and elastic.
Cut a wing shape the size of one sheet of paper...8 1/2 by 11"
Hot glue on a craft stick. This will give the wings structure and strength.
Then add a contrasting color of foam in a puffy shape.
Turn the wing over and hot glue on 3 craft sticks.
Lay it on top of the large sheet of foam and cut out a
similar shape using all the foam possible!
Do this for both wings...one the mirrored image of the other.
Then, sadly, I skimped on the pictures...
hot glue craft sticks across the center of the 2 wings.
Cover with more fun foam.
Use an eyelet setter and make 4 eyelets about 6 inches apart.
Add another smaller foam wing on the backside too.
Thread elastic through the eyelets, and tie them off...
just measure on your model for this part.
We did one for Twilight Sparkle or other Princess pony wings...
The blue wings we made for a smaller girl, the Rainbow Dash wings!
