Just because I want to, today I am going to write about Pinkie Pie. I’ve done it a few times in the past – here and here… and maybe a couple other times. But today I’m going to write about her in a different fashion. Today’s post is about Pinkie Pie Closet Cosplay!
What is closet cosplay, you ask? Kris explained it best in a previous post, but in a nutshell, closet cosplay is taking clothes from your own closet to dress in an outfit inspired by a character in your everyday life.
This is not as difficult as you think. Let’s take today’s example… everyone’s favourite pony, Pinkie Pie!
As you can see, Pinkie Pie’s signature colour is definitely pink (obviously!), but she does also have a yellow and blue cutie mark. This needs to be taken into account to get the full Pinkie Pie effect. With Kris’s help, it wasn’t too challenging to come up with a few different outfits for various occasions… all from my pieces already in my closet! So here they are. Enjoy!
This is a fun outfit for any sort of casual activity. We chose to go with pastel versions of the colours for the right feel for this outfit. The pink cardigan and purse bring in the token Pinkie Pie pink, while the yellow shirt and denim skirt emanate her Cutie Mark. We also added a sequinned hair bow for a little extra sparkle!
We put together this Date Night outfit with more muted tones of the colours. The yellow tank top under the lace shirt ads a touch of yellow, and I carried a blue bag to complete the Cutie Mark colours. The gold sparkly wedges just seemed like something Pinkie Pie would wear!
For this Pinkie Pie work outfit, we interpreted the colours a little more as jewel tones, and in fact used gold to represent the yellow instead. This seems appropriately polished for work. The pink peplum dress just SCREAMS Pinkie Pie, and the blue blazer with gold buttons brings in her Cutie Mark. We also added a couple small hair bows in pink and blue for good measure.
What do you think? Have you ever Closet Cosplayed Pinkie Pie or any of the ponies? Let us know know in the comments!
