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.

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.)

Just a friendly heads up though. if you go for a character thats in one style (this rarity is Mlp : Fim) and then you change the snout saying you dont want it to look the same, it can end up looking really funky and off. But!...I dont deny that this is cute! I love how the cutie marks turned out :)

FoxOFWar Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, considering all the UTTERLY POSITIVE feedback I got this weekend at Tracon... well. I will be doing a new head anyway, reforming the snout somewhat, though still probably not going quite as small as the show style. (This is also fairly close to the style I draw them myself, so... yeah.)

Then again, fursuit. Who's to decide what's 'right' style to do something like this?

Bloodied-Obsidian Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, if you do a character that has a specific style such as the FIM then its the style of the cartoon that's correct I suppose. I was not trying to be rude, sorry if you took it that way. It just looked a little funky to me.

I know it looks a little funky and I will be making a new one as said...

...and yeah, 'correct' way would be trying to be as close as possible to the show... if I cared about show accuracy vs. my own bias that much, that is. I like showing *some* actual pony anatomy in my soft marshmallow ponies, so that will show in the fursuit too. ;)

I heartily endorse the non-show-style-snout movement.
