my little pony Applejack costume
Hooray! With only days to spare I finally made Charlotte's Halloween costume. Slacker much? I only say that because I made Sadie's a whole like....2 months ago. I've told you before I don't like making most things twice, right? Anyways...I finally buckled down and love how it turned out...so does Miss C, which is what really matters right?! She kept saying, "Mom! Cute! Cute! Apple-gack!"....which was of course freaking adorable.
This was pretty much the only picture of the hood and hat on...it's quite heavy with the hat pinned to the hood, so I have a feeling it will be hanging down most of the time. Which is fine, it looks cute that way, too.
Apples! and a cute pony-tail! She's supposed to have a ribbon/ ponytail in her mane, too, but I forgot to make it long and can you blame me for not wanting to rip it open to redo it? lol. Sadie made sure to point that out to me though. If that show ever needs a continuity specialist....my Sadie is your gal!
I made the costume the same way I did Sadie's Rainbow Dash costume, leaving off the wings of course. Cutie mark, pants, tail, etc...everything else made using that tute! I added a little ribbon pull to the front because it was a bit boring and needed a little color!
Oh and I made a hat! Basically fleece held together with hot glue and a prayer....and some of that plastic mesh stuff. No tute for that because...well like I said, it's not made very well...lol! Just for looks. It looks just like the real Applejack's though, right? Minus the hot glue streaks.
I didn't manage to get any pics of the two of them that weren't blurry as heck. They were having quite the good time ponying around! (har har)
Woohoo! Time to kick my legs up! Halloween costumes are done!
