The rainbow nails from the last post were for…….

My Little Pony Costume!! Although you couldn’t really see my nails, I knew they were there!

I have fond memories of playing with My Little Ponies as a child: Lining them up for a pony parade, taking them in the bath tub, smelling their lovely pony scent, and crying when the dog chewed off piece of Apple Jack’s hoof.  I also have not so fond memories of being called “Pony Legs”, thank you very much, we won’t get into that story.  But I decided to own up to my pony legs name and become Rainbow Dash for Halloween.  I recycled my sister’s “Smurfette” blue body stocking from a few years ago.  I got a rainbow wig and rainbow feather boa for my mane and tail, and I used less than 1 yard of faux fur to make my hooves, skirt, and ears.  I did a version of “cartoon ” eye makeup by painting white under my eyes to look like pony eyes, then I attached fake lashes under the fake white section.

I had these old (CHEAP) boots that I had gotten probably 5 years ago to be a pirate.  They were pleather, aka “vegan leather” as they say nowadays, and they were peeling slightly.  If you look closely, you’ll see the zip is letting go near the top. I was surprised that they were still wearable.   I hot-glued the fake fur around the bottom, and then I tucked it into the tops of the boot.


Then I just folded some triangles and hot glued them together for my ears. I pinned them on with bobby pins.

The hoof hearts and butt rainbow were made out of those foamie sheets that kids use for art.


It’s hard for ponies to hold bottles!


Here I am with Poca-haunt-as and Toy Soldier.  We were dancing, I was galloping and doing the pony dance all night, but once in a while I would feel a weird feeling in my hoof.  But I didn’t discover was it was until I got home….


My hoof was “Begging for Bread” the whole night!!! Or should I say “Begging for Hay”?

The only thing that kept it on was all the hot glue on fake fur.


RIP pirate boots…you aren’t worth fixing because you are too far gone with your peeling and busted zip… AND I got an awesome NEW pair of boots that I will post soon!!

Happy Halloween everyone! Gallop safely!
