Part 1 of 2: Look Like Rainbow Dash
Step 1. Get a rainbow wig
The easiest way to get a good Rainbow Dash costume is by getting a wig in the colors of the rainbow. You can get it in costume stores, or you can order it online with your parents' permission.
- To make your wig look like Rainbow Dash's mane, ask a parent to cut it into a ridge so that it falls towards the back of your neck in a straight line, like a horse's mane..
- If you wish, you could also order a rainbow tail online that is very similar to Rainbow Dash's. Clip it to the back of a sports pants and you have it!
Step 2. Wear an aquamarine top
To make your costume look really cool, find a hoodie or tank top to make your Rainbow Dash costume. You don't actually need to modify your garment to make the costume, just make sure it's the correct color. Together with your wig, you will manage to look a lot like Rainbow Dash.
Step 3. Attach some wings to the back of the top
Do you really want to go further? If you want wings, cut cardboard wings out of an old cereal box or shoe box with scissors. If necessary, ask your parents to help you cut them and then sew them to the back of your tank top.
Use markers or crayons of the same color as your top, to color the wings to match
Step 4. Get aqua or rainbow leggings
Depending on how you want your costume to look, you could go further, combining the top and wig with anklets or leggings. Try to get the most similar colors.
If you wear leggings on your ankles, also wear rainbow leggings on your wrists. It will give the impression that you are used to walking on all fours, like Rainbow Dash

Step 1. Memorize some phrases from Rainbow Dash
Do you want to act like Rainbow Dash? Remember some of the things he says and repeat them regularly, at the right time. Here are some quotes from Rainbow Dash:
- "20% cooler."

- "What about the super, hyper, breathtakingly awesome?"
- "I'm thankful I wasn't replaced by a bucket of turnips!"
- "Time to take out that adorable garbage!"
- "It could clear the sky in exactly ten seconds!"
Step 2. Learn about the weather
Rainbow Dash controls the weather in Ponyville, keeping the sky cloud-free for the summer sun celebration. Unless rain is scheduled for that day, Rainbow Dash makes sure Ponyville is always in good, warm and sunny weather. You cannot control the weather, but you could read the weather forecast and watch the weather channel to find out what the weather will be like that day and thus become the "manager" of this issue.
Before going to school, check the local news or the newspaper to find out what the weather will be like. Memorize it so that it gives the impression that you know it automatically. You could tell your friends "I'd say there is a 41% chance of humidity today."
Step 3. Be sporty
First and foremost, Rainbow Dash is athletic and sporty. She loves to run, play outside, and keep fit. Try to find outdoor activities that you like to do, go outside and get your hands dirty.
Rainbow Dash can be quite competitive, so don't be afraid to challenge your friends to contests and races on a regular basis
Step 4. Read a lot
In the episode "Read and Cry," Rainbow Dash discovers her love of reading. She is much more than athletic, she is also very intelligent and a great lover of books. Find some books that you enjoy reading and always have one on your desk.
In another episode, she reveals that she is writing a novel about an incredible pegasus. If you have some ideas, you could try writing a book
Step 5. Help children younger than you
In an episode where everyone goes camping, Rainbow Dash tells scary stories that scare Scootaloo. Scootaloo was very ashamed and afraid to say that the stories scared her, and she continued in fear for the rest of the trip. Finally, Rainbow Dash realizes this, but instead of giving him a hard time, she tells him that scary stories scared her too when she was younger and agrees to act like a big sister to Scootaloo.
Don't be rude with children younger than you, including your younger siblings. Be nice to them and help them anytime you can
Step 6. Be brave
When Rainbow Dash goes to Wonderbolt Academy, Lightning Dust was reckless with a tornado and Rainbow Dash ends up saving many ponies from disaster. Since she controls the weather, she swooped in and saved everyone. If you want to be like Rainbow Dash, you must be willing to fight for what you believe in. Help others and be brave in the face of challenges
Rainbow Dash is not reckless. Being brave does not mean doing dangerous things. She is smart and cautious at the same time
Step 7. Ask permission to go to a cosplay convention
The Rainbow Dash costume is very popular at cosplay conventions and can be a great opportunity to hang out with other Rainbow Dash fans, discover other great costumes, and see how you could improve yours.
