My Little Pony is series of toys that were originally released back in the 1980’s, the line went through several cycles of being discontinued due to low sales and then revived at a later date due to a resurgence in popularity.
Since 2003 the line has been back in popularity, with a fourth incarnation released in 2010 alongside the animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Twilight Sparkle is a character from My Little Pony who is introduced to us as someone who is anti-social and prefers to read books, later on we see her personality develop although she retains her logical edge.
In today’s post we’ll be showing you how to put together a My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle Costume, perfect for cosplay or fancy dress. With everything you need including wig, unicorn horns, cosplay outfit, wings and makeup.
My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle Wig
The first item you’ll need is a pair of unicorn horns, here is an option that will work well for this character. You could also wear a wig in the colors of Twilight Sparkle although I have seen people cosplay without one. You could also dye your hair dark blue or use spray in dye for a less permanent change.
