Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
Project Name: transformed MLP
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
Here is a MLP, my first ever. I am not familiar with the originals, so I do not know 'who' it used to be. got it for 25 cents at Goodwill. Months ago, I bought 2 wigs at another thrift shop, knowing I could use 'em some day. One wig - pre-crimped - became the mane, the other is the tail.
This is a Gandalf Murphy pony, based on the lead singer of The Slambovians. I used a picture on their base drum to get every detail correct - the blue blazer, the brown vest with black bits and a white button, the yellow flower on the lapel, the purple skull tie, the crooked black hat, the goatee, the gold earrings, the face paint.
During the shows, they celebrate Gandalf's family history of mumming in the UK, so everyone brings their parasols and dances with them. I transformed a cocktail umbrella, painted it, added a curve at the base using spaghetti (!) and dangled seed beads from the edges for a more festive look.
This is my first HP post... hope I did it correctly!!
