Apple Bloom - MLP:FiM by JiaJem Apple Bloom - MLP:FiM by JiaJem
WELL HOLY POOP. This is definitely *not* the costume I expected to get a DD for, if any at all! Thank you so much! :)

Third in my Cutie Mark Crusaders costumes from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. :)

Taken on an Autumn day at the petting zoo - Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago, IL.

I drafted the entire costume myself. Pretty simple stuff. :) The giant bow has extra thick iron-on interfacing to keep it's cartoon shape. The shirt pattern is a loose raglan sleeve shirt cinched with a bunch of elastic in a cute tiny floral pattern. The overalls are corduroy - I couldn't find yellow, so I dyed some thick cream corduroy a bright yellow. Shoes are Demonia from 10 years ago that I spray-painted red.

The wig is from Classe, I forget the exact color because it was a sample. It was totally fun to style! It was stick straight, so a lot of work went into it to get the victory rolls and the curls. It's totally one of my favorite styled wigs to date!

I forgot the name of my cow model. :( If he/she sees this, let me know so I can link them. I hate when models go unmentioned.

I'm sure your cow model would indeed appreciate some credit. :noes:
I'm dying

Anyways, pretty cute cosplay! The combination of cute and sexy for a MLP cosplay is a little... not to my tastes, but I do see that you have skill in sewing and you put a lot of work into this. The end result is worth it. :) Congrats on the DD, and have a nice day~

NO, it is not my taste either. I originally wanted to do Scootaloo, which I have pics of in my gallery. I did her in a Speed Racer mod version, very innocent and cute, and I just did the other two on a whim. AppleBloom was definitely the most interpretive, and I knew I would get a lot of flack from my design, which I did get a lot of. That's cool. I'm 32, I'm not going to pretend I'm a prepubescent person, let alone a pony. I just did my own thing for myself, and trust, I'm surprised I got a DD, but I'm excited nonetheless.

Very cute cosplay! Very well done, though idk about he shoes for a farm girl. Oh well, who says Applebloom can't have cute, dressy shoes? Not me!

JiaJem Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013
Naw I agree, but since this is a photo shoot and all, why not dress it up! ...also, I made this costume for pennies, and had the shoes in my closed for years. :/ It's one of those things like "no one will notice the shoes, I'm just pulling them out of my closet from a decade ago" and then they become a focal point... oh well. :B

Sorry, I actually love this cosplay. I pay attention to every detail because I'm a detail orientated person. The shoes definitely fit with applebloom, but I've always pictured her with cowboy boots. Sorry, my comment wasn't saying that the shoes make your cosplay any less, in fact I think it makes it look original and an interesting look for cosplay of Applebloom
