Wednesday Workout Cosplay: DJ Pon-3

I apologize in advance as I know I'm complaining, but, this past weekend was warm, and not in a good way. It was summery warm.
Which left me with my realization...which I conveniently had at work:
"I'd rather be snowboarding!"
So, I had to change today's post to Snowboarding featuring  DJ Pon-3 (or, Vinyl Scratch, whichever you prefer)!

Let's start with the outer garments as they are the first shield against the powder!
This coat by O'Neill (like April!) looks so warm and I love the different tones/shades of teal! It reminds me of DJ's hair! (*o*)  What I like most about this particular coat is the wrist gaiters and powder skirt which help to prevent snow from creeping up in your jacket. Hide yo' wrists, Hide yo' side...never mind. Anyway, I love it!

And of course, you want some SWEET powder pants so your bum doesn't get soggy. The one thing I would add to these are patches of two bridged 8th notes on each side of the bum. Because "Gotta have your cutie mark!"

And of course we need some warm clothes under the shells. I found that Compression Thermal Thingys (this is a legit title...trust me) are best. I like this duo from Spyder. They look like maybe they will make me faster...like, 20% faster and cooler.

And some Snowboarding boots and goggles:

 The shiny blue is how they normally reflect!

You will of course need a board. I found this one, that looks pretty awesome. But then I remembered "Bronies are pretty awesome at ponifieing (sp) all the the things! I bet someone has customized a board?" And what do you know, I found these beauties by idontruntoofast! Seriously: SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

And lest I forget, you need to keep your head warm! A lot of your body heat will escape from there. But, since we are keeping this DJ Pon-3 inspired, why not rock your brony/pegasister pride with this sweet cap! It even has ear flaps and ties so your ears stay toasty, and you cap stays on your head!

And of course, some headphones to listen to your sweet powder-shredding-inspired grooves:

I will leave you with a DJ Pon-3 inspired mix; it also features music from the "greatest snowboarding movie of all time" Johnny Tsunami! Head's up, its' pretty bass heavy, I find that for snowboarding, I like DJ type stuff (and punk and ska, but that's just my favorite stuff). Enjoy!

  2. All those clothes are so cute! I especially like the boards though :) I was just watching Olympic snowboarding last night, but I don't think I'll ever try it myself...

    1. It's fun! I'm not coordinated, but I have fun doing it!
      Mind you, I totally board with a helmet and wristguards. It may seem silly, but I feel WAY more confident, so it helps me stand up longer!

  3. I really love that blue against that cool white. Those snowboard designs are awesome.

    1. I wish I could buy those boards! I would have such a dilemma if I was told to only pick one though!

    1. Snowboarding/Powder pants have some insanely cute cuts! But they can be a bit pricey.

  5. Look at those boards! I don't snowboard, but if I did, I'd get a custom one like those.

    1. Oh you should try it! If you've ever skateboarded, or surfed you have an edge. It's not easy for me, but I like it! (I feel like confidence is key!)

      I don't do it often at all (haven't been since like, 2010), but it's a lot of fun, and is a GREAT workout!
      I REALLY want one of those boards, but man, I couldn't decide between the Rainbow Dash one, or the Twilight Sparkle.

      Conundrum!!!

    1. Right?
      I was searching to see if the artist would sell, but couldn't find anything! So sad.
