As some of you may already know, I will be cosplaying a humanized version of Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony: Friendship is magic. I recently got my wig and goggles in the mail Friday (yesterday) and would like to give you all a quick review of the products.

I bought the wig off "1982bigdreamer" on ebay for about $25, the seller shipped it the day after I ordered it, so it was pretty quick. there was a span of about 1-2 weeks as the estimated shipping and it came about 3 days after the first day of estimated shipping. I was super happy with the shipping speed and the wig itself. the only thing off about it was that when I went to open the wig, the package was already open. I suspect it might have been an inspection by customs since the label on the outside didn't say wig r anything, just a couple letters and numbers. that isn't in control of the seller though! (I forgot to add, the wig is also adjustable in size
the wig itself is perfect as far as I'm concerned. the colors of the wig are so soft and feel super realistic, I believe it is heat resistant up to a certain degree, so I'm very happy with it. there is a part on the wig where it is set up in the coloring of the wig so the part can't be altered or move, but I found if you're looking for a side part sort of style, it's wefted thickly enough so that all you have to do is pull the wig itself slightly to the side to achieve that look. ALSO, since the wi is wefted fully and is very thick at the top, it gives it sort of a poofy top, you can smooth i down slightly with brushing, but there will be a cetain amount of puff to it, it' not super puffy, but it does have volume!

the goggles: [link]
I bought these from "love-10000" on ebay for about $5. they were also super great with shipping. these came in a surprisingly tiny box. I was surprised that the could even fit the goggles in there, until I realized that these goggles fold in half for easy transport! Really cool feature I must say. I chose theses in the color "Dazzle Colour" Because they had sort of a colorful, rainbow type hue to them which I thought would go great with RD. the strap is adjustable on the goggles, so they can be adjusted for different sizes. I wear these on my head along with the pony ears I made, so I don't wear them over my eyes much, but I tried and they are super easy to see through and are tinted slightly so they're like sunglasses, but not as dark. the lenses are plastic and durable, so they don't pop out easily and the goggles have hinge type pieces between the eyes and on the sides for a comfortable fit the elastic on the strap is also very soft and flexible and doesn't stretch out easily as far as I can tell.

(You can't really see the color in the goggles in this pic becuase I used my low quality webcam haha! But trust me, the colors are super pretty. they're a really pretty kinda blue/purple gradient across the lens
I'll probably post a video analyzing the wig and goggles if I remember to/have the time. I'll also post my cosplay design once I finish the making the cosplay. I'm probably about 80-90 percent done. I still need to make the cropped jacket, iron on the patches, finish the belt buckle, and gloves.
I designed this cosplay myself as I do many of the gijinka/humanozed versions of characters.
I'm open on requests for design too! Wether they be lolita dresses of already existing characters, a gijinka pokemon, a humanized pony, or anything else. I'm open for it!
they are entirely freee, wether you decide to use them or not!
