This year, she was dead set on Princess Celestia from the My Little Pony cartoon. She is obsessed with MLP. I tried my best to talk her into one of the ponies that did not have a horn or a crown or jewelry or any of the extra junk that the princesses have. Nothing doing. She was only interested in Princess Celestia.
We did our best, and I think we did OK!
I started with these two tutorials: one and two, and used them as a base for wings, mane, tail, ears, horn, and cutie mark. I used a purchased white sweat suit, though. No sewing a hoodie for me, thankyouverymuch. The necklace and crown I totally winged, using sparkly craft foam with velcro dots and "jewels" hot glued on. She's pleased, therefore so am I!
