Rarity Fursuit Final by FoxOFWar Rarity Fursuit Final by FoxOFWar
(huge bunch of pics, full view if you please!)

DONE! By Celestia's Beard, what we have here is a completed "Sisterhooves Social" Rarity fursuit, worn by yours truly for Tracon 2012 in three days' time - and quite possibly a fair few cons after that too.

This is the result of about six months of brainstorming, and bit over month of actual crafting. Most of the sewing was done by my awesome sister ~furball891 , and some help with the boots came from ~lodirin ... the rest of it was just a lot of trial and error... surprisingly often ending up with burning my fingers with hot glue.

Decided to go for Sisterhooves Social (aka 'wetmane') because as fabulous as Rarity's mane is, actually getting real life braids to that shape is very, very difficult if not impossible (to me at least).

Before you note about the snout (or something else) being 'wrong' do note that I was not even aiming for straight up show style but putting my own twist on things.

Rarity, Those Confounded Ponies (c) Hasbro.

I might be able to sell it after Crystal Fair (next June)... how much would you be willing to pay?

Considering how much time and work I've put into this (not to mention materials alone are at around ~300 euros), I'm thinking maybe around ~700 euros + shipping? (Since doing this photoshoot I've redone the head and improved the bodysuit a fair bit.)

Yeah, not quite there yet with 'wetmane' as I'd like to be. Almost, but not quite.
