[PRINCESS CELESTIA] Bring On The Dawn by Windaria [PRINCESS CELESTIA] Bring On The Dawn by Windaria
Princess Celestia from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!   I got to design and create my own version of the character to go along with three of my friends who made human versions of the gala dresses.  We had so much fun wearing these at AnimeNext and Otakon in 2011, but I have since sold the wig to another MLP costumer and repurposed the costume into other things. :3

Side Notes!
- I made a horn for this costume, but I couldn't figure out a way to attach it without blocking my crown! It just looked wonky on my head in general, so I left it out.
- I was working off of an inaccurate reference picture when painting my cutie mark, which I only realized after we had our photos taken.  It was fixed afterward for the costume's second appearance at Otakon.

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments! It means so much to hear such positive feedback from other fans of the show. :D

1. You look stunning.
2. This is the best cosplay I've ever seen.
3. Celestia is ny favorite character.

1. "Ny" is supposed to be "my".
2. "Hpoe" is supposed to be "hope".

You did an amazing cosplay! The dress is gorgeous and the wing is fantastic just curious when you dyed your wig did you have any problems with the colour rubbing off on the white dress?

I love this Celestia dress. The design seems deceptively simple, yet it looks so elegant. Fantastic work as always!
