Making dreams comes true for one Brony at a time

EK's obsession with My Little Pony continues. I would go as far as calling him a hardcore Brony.

Our Halloween plans are set :

1. 1 rainbow dash sweatshirt

2. Pair of blue pants with hooves sewed on (don't even ask me how this will happen).

Done and done (brushes hands off).

Maybe this will get the new neighbors to like me?

But here is the kicker. Every morning he now makes himself cry with the followng statement:

"Mama, my dream will never come true." [dramatic pause] "Ill never met a real My Little Pony." Cue tears.

While I accept this as a truth, I still went on the Interwebs (specifically Party City) to see what kind of cosutmes exist if, say, a person wanted to dress up like a MLP alongside their kiddo on Halloween. Because, you know, I was curious.

HO- LEE SPARKLE PONY BUTTS! These are not the off-the-rack costumes I was envisioning to sport with my four-year-old brony around the 'hood.  So that plan is quashed.

New idea? Ask an artist friend if he could create such a meeting on paper...so EK could imagine the interaction. After insulting said artist and threatening to punch him in his broken heart (it's really broken, not like he's sad), he said, "consider it done". OK fine, I didn't threaten him, but I thought about it. So maybe that will appease the kid.

Or just rock/paper/scissors it out with Mr. Swirley with this sucker. I can see Mr. Swirley winning (losing as he isn't into MLP?) and EK changes his mind at the last minute re: his own costume.
