My Little Pony’s Tara Strong Chooses Twilight Sparkle For Her First-Ever Cosplay

Just What You've Always Wanted

Voice actor Tara Strong attended Canterlot Gardens, a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic convention in Ohio, a few days ago. This isn’t news. What is news is Strong arrived on stage dressed as her character, Twilight Sparkle. And yes, there’s video. 

Strong posted the top image on her Twitter account, announcing that this was her first-ever cosplay. Not just that, but she was doing it to troll surprise fans. And boy did she. Josh Ruble posted a short video of Strong as she walked on stage. One person immediately realized what was happening but it took a little while for the whole audience to catch on. Watch the video now, their reaction is pretty great.

“Surprising the fans was crazy fun,” she tweeted, “I love their delayed reaction.”

This other shot was taken by a fan (via Equestria Daily) and shows the full get-up.
