Rainbow Road by Kate-Kane Rainbow Road by Kate-Kane
this was the first time i really got into doing armour with :iconcosplaypropmaster: btw its her in this i just drew up, molded and laced the armour. she did all the cutting, detail work and paint.
wig, shoes and the rest of the cosplay is primarily hers too.

this was taken on the rainbow crosing in oxford street 1 week before the government did a night sneak and removed it while people were sleeping so that they couldnt protest the removal.
it had been painted for the gay and lesbian festival in the most infamous place and it was bringing in alot of tourism and income to the local businesses but some politician deemed it too dangerous to keep.
so glad i insisted she go shoot rarin and all even though it was one week before Madman.

Huh... well that's a bummer, were the "safety reasons" due to some form of road hazard it supposedly hosted or just an excuse because homophobia?

Either way, a very cool humanized RD there in... ancient Pegasus Empire or Crystal Empire armour?

People were standing/sitting/laying on it - an active roadway - preventing traffic from moving.

Meanwhile, the government has no money, so they just throw $90,000 at something.

This is a great cosplay. Other than the rest.
Everything is in place. And the blade - new way to incorporate cutie mark than on outfit or on skin. And it's nice that you managed to take that photo on that road,looks like a rail road to Cloudsdale :).
