Here’s one of the entries for our Valentine’s Day Couples Contest! Ashlee Ennis and Dustin Gerald are cosplaying as Spike and Rarity from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. While neither of these cosplayers are using our wigs we have some recommendations for styles in case you are looking to cosplay as either of these characters in the future! For a Spike cosplay we recommend our Apollo Wig in Clover Green. For a Rarity cosplay we recommend our Rarity Character Specific Wig (discontinued)! Read on to learn more about these cosplayers!
-What inspired you to do these cosplays?
We chose Spike and Rarity because we are huge fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, plus Spike and Rarity are our favorite characters!
-What got you into cosplay?
The first time we cosplayed was also the first time we went to a convention together. The first day we didn’t dress up, but we had so much fun seeing all of the cosplayers, that night we quickly put together two costumes for the second day. Even though the second day of the convention got cancelled due to safety reasons and we only wore those costumes for an hour or two, we both instantly knew this was something we both loved and wanted to spend time doing together.
-Why do you love cosplay?
We love cosplay because it’s so much more than just dressing up. Leading up to a convention, we get to make the costumes together, be it sewing, working with craft foam, or anything else. Once the day finally arrives, we get to transform into the characters, taking on their posture, mannerisms, and even voices. It really lets us escape reality for a day and become these totally different people. Cosplay has truly brought us closer together as a couple.
