Rule 63 Rarity/Elusive Cosplay by Oak23 Rule 63 Rarity/Elusive Cosplay by Oak23
Here's something a bit different to show I'm still alive.

Rarity without a doubt is my favourite pony and I adore her personality, flaws, appearance and the fact she manages to be the most mature yet immature of the main 6.

I've seen other cosplays and I felt going all white looked a bit monotonous, so I figure I would try using different shades of grey to help break up the look a bit. Though looking at it now I might go for slightly darker pants than my waistcoat. All of these clothes came from my wardrobe, I just usually am more used to bow ties than regular ties so excuse if my tie looks a bit weird here.

My horn is a mix of masking tape, wire and crayola model magic. Despite people recommending it, I don't think this clay is very durable or easy to use. If you look at my horn closely, it's incredibly cracked and uneven despite all of the sanding.

I was going to wear this for Oz Comic-Con, but that was one of the worst fiascos I've seen. Ah well, I got Manifest in two months. I might even make a male Opal plushie to go with this cosplay maybe.

Oh, that was a shame! There were a group of us ponies running around both days! Some of us are wearing our pony costumes again for Armageddon. :)

Yeah, I was kinda disappointed to have waited 2+ hours just to be told to go away from Comic Con, and kinda stranded in the city in my cosplay. I'm hoping to get this improved in time for Manifest, haha. Hopefully I can pull that off.

They opened the doors again a few hours later, I believe. I'll be attending two days of Manifest (out of costume, unfortunately) hopefully I'll see you there!

An opal plushie with it would be cute. I'm guessing you'll be wearing dressier pants with it when you wear it for real? The top half certainly looks Rule 63 Rarity swanky. The tie doesn't look weird at all though it does look blue and I imagine him wearing a purple one. I obviously can't tell from here that there are any issues with the horn.

I'm curious how far you're going to go with it. Since you already have a horn, are you also considering wearing ears? How about a wig or dying your hair purple?

I really like seeing rule 63 Rarity cosplay, they're usually the best rule 63 pony cosplays for some reason! This looks good and I hope you have fun wearing it! If you don't do an Opal plushie, you could find some costume gems or nice ribbon or fabric swatches pretty cheaply. Just an idea!

Lols yeah I think looking at it all together I might spring for dressier pants, if not at least darker ones. The tie itself is much more purple and is meant to go with my wig but the lighting ruined a lot of the colours. Here's a pic of my wig in a much closer colour: [link]

Unless I get another wig that covers my ears I think I'm sticking with just a unicorn horn since I'm very iffy about animal ears + human ears in a lot of designs.

Rarity cosplays in general are awesome though, I hope that I can do a good job with my cosplay of her :D Thanks for the tips though :D

Hmm I get what you mean about the double ears. It's a shame the wig isn't a bit longer. That said, it IS a nice color!
