In depth details about the whole con full of amazing guests and presentations are found HERE.

Ready-to-Wear: Pretty Deadly

Okay, I’m jumping the gun a little — this comic (by creative team Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios) isn’t even out until October — but I’m not the only one: it’s been generating buzz since its announcement and the fanart just keeps coming. I’m putting together ideas for outfits for con appearances in October and when I asked for suggestions Pretty Deadly‘s protagonist Ginny, the daughter of death, came up and I latched on. Here’s a first draft:

Ready-to-Wear: Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony Week)

an image of Rarity looking embarrassedMy friend Twilight Sparkle would like me to remind anypony who is an American citizen of voting age to VOTE in today’s Presidential and other assorted races Election.

Twilight is all about responsibility.

Now on to fashion. I am very, very pleased with this pony chic ensemble. Twilight is a unicorn, like me!, and a magic user. She is bookish and has a great number of opinions, like me!, but she is also a hard worker and an aristocrat from the capitol city of Canterlot…. oh, Canterlot. Erm. Voila:

Ready-to-Wear: Fluttershy (My Little Pony Week)

Today I bring you the kindest and gentlest pony I know, pretty pegasus Fluttershy. She is too, erm, shy to say hello today… her last outing as a model was, well, shall we say it left her with a bad taste in her bridle. But I assure you all she is the sweetest pony to ever grace Equestria!

Ready-to-Wear: Butch!Applejack (My Little Pony Week)

Friend of the site Sigrid asked for a more butch version of the Pony Chic and we aim to please!

Applejack B (My Little Pony Week)

The differences are subtle: a wider (“brony”) fit for the jeans and top, work boots with no heels, simpler accessories. Brony Applejack is pretty close to Filly Applejack — the rest of the mane six are like to be more distinct.

Ready-to-Wear: Applejack (My Little Pony Week)

Hello everypony! The third season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic begins next Saturday, November 10! To get ready for new adventures in Ponyville I’ve asked the stylish and generous Rarity to help us with Ready-to-Wear Pony Week!!

Helloooooooo, Equestrians! And all you little ponies outside our beautiful nation on the ‘internet’. I am so very pleased to meet you and share my fashion tips. I will be here every day this week to discuss the couture of my very best friends. Everypony has their own unique chic, the trick is to make it your own!

Today we start with Applejack. Applejack is an Earth pony and a member of the Apple Family who work tirelessly at their farm to bring us all the most appletastic treats and superb cider.

Why thank ya, Rarity.

Of course, darling.

Applejack’s style is Western and as down-to-earth as she is. She likes to keep things casual and most importantly, she never goes anywhere without her hat.

Ruby Style (Ready-to-Wear: Red Riding Hood)

This post contains spoiler images from Once Upon a Time 2.4 The Crocodile.

Red Riding Hood is one of the easier characters to RTW. All you really need is something red and hooded. And Ruby (the stunning Meghan Ory) on Once Upon a Time pulls it off without even the hood by sticking to the red, black, and white color palette. It’s nearing Halloween and I’m going to NYCC this weekend so for this post I put together a cosplay version of Ruby’s look in the upcoming episode “The Crocodile”. I got the details from promotional pictures so this would not be considered a spoiler free post (though I don’t expect you can get much PLOT out of this). Here’s the outfit:

Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Gwen Stacy (Back-to-School Series)

I saved my favourite for last.

Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker at school, talking. Still from The Amazing Spider-Man.

It’s no secret that I love Spider-Man. But ever since I saw this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man I have been obsessed with Gwen Stacy’s shoes. I need to own them. Screen accuracy would be ideal, but a) I still haven’t discovered what boots those actually are and b) the costume pieces purchased for the film were available during filming — fashion moves on. But even a like version has proven difficult to find, especially for under $300. The fact that it was Summer (in New England) probably has something to do with that, boots are just now appearing in stores again, so my quest is far from over. I will have Gwen Stacy Shoes.

Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Spoiler (Back-to-School Series)

Stephanie Brown has been Robin and Batgirl but her first super-identity was Spoiler.

Even as a supersuit head-to-toe purple is a little funky. But Steph’s an original and it felt only right to use the look she really owns.

Ready to Wear Superhero: Blue Beetle (Back-to-School Series)

So THIS was a challenge!

Technical costume specs of the Blue Beetle

I like to support new characters, young characters, and characters of color so I really wanted to include Jamie Reyes. But he wears a carapace. I had to get a little extra creative.
