My friend decided to throw an 80s themed birthday party and everyone dressed up as their favorite 80s TV icon / cartoon character. Naturally, I decided to dress up as a My Little Pony. I put some time and thought into my costume so I definitely had to take some pre pre-party pictures.
I knew I had to have long pink pink hair if I was gonna nail this costume. The problem was that I didn’t want to wear a hot / itchy wig all night and the reality was I didn’t want to break the bank on hair if it wasn’t getting bonded, sewn in, or taped to my #shortaf hair for a few months. I ended up really liking my hair solution and it was super cheap. I bought 2 packs of pink remy hair for like $4 a pack. I got some manic panic hair dye in cotton candy pink and mixed it with a lot of conditioner so that it was super pastel pink. I flash dyed the front of my hair and pulled it forward like a pony. I bobby pinned one pack of the remy hair into 2 pony ears and a mane. I tied a big bow on the second pack of hair and pinned it to my skirt so that I had a pony tail. Success!
I have the best boyfriend ever. He insisted that I needed some bright pink ice cream for the photos. Apparently Ben and Jerry’s doesn’t use artificial colors so their strawberry ice cream is like basically white, but luckily they had some hot pink raspberry sorbet!
I bought my tutu from a vintage seller at the Nashville Flea Market. It was really huge so I cut like half of it off, made it high waisted, and added grommets so that it laced up the back! I'm selling the tutu on my Depop right HERE!
My 6 inch Ballet Bae platform, plus the added height of my pink mane, had me lifted over 6 feet tall.
