Your future Queen has been geeking out over all things My Little Pony. It started with a couple blind bags. It grew into a collection of 3 different blind bag series, with one series being 3 figures away from completion.

On Free Comic Book Day (May 4th), the King and I will be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary at Third Eye Comics starting the night before while we camp out. For fun, I decided to do a costume (well for fun and to be entered to win a $200 gift card to the store!) and my first thought was: Twilight Sparkle! I can’t wait to post pictures of the costume and all the festivities from FCBD!

In the spirit of all things My Little Pony, I fell in love with this shirt:

As soon as I saw it on the Third Eye Comics facebook page. I bought it, but thought about it and decided it needed a little redo. So I cut it up, sewed it up and turned it into a tube top. But I wasn’t happy with it.
It was too tight, because I bought the tee shirt to be a tee shirt, not an altered tube top.

So, I thought about it, tried another option and was still unhappy. Eventually, I bought some black lace, recut the tee, and finished it but adding lace to make it a little looser but more “me”.

The final product:

I may look tired and worn out, but the finally finished tube top looks amazing! And I adore my newest My Little Pony accessory!

By the way, my costume will have a Spike with it, and thanks to Loot Crate awesomeness, he will be sporting a mustache! Because Spike with a mustache is kickass!
