This guy was..a challenge. The only fabric I could find that even remotely resembled the real thing (at this scale) was this weird loosely woven tinsel-like stuff which was hell to sew, even after giving it a lining. I almost gave up so many times but I'm glad I didn't in the end; I adore this little dork.
To be completely honest, he's not entirely finished. I need to make him his blingy necklace at some point, but I seem to have lost a bit of motivation with him. Maybe when the last movie comes out....? We'll see.
He is 9 inches tall and is completely poseable. His hair is from a wig and his crown was made from super sculpey ultralight (quite possibly THE hardest thing in the world to sculpt with -- which makes sense since it's not actually designed for sculpting) and a hacked up aquarium plant. His eyebrows are embroidered, his eyes are handpainted, and I decided to omit a mouth because I really like how the lack of one seemed to add to his expression.
Unfortunately one of the tips broke off his crown during my recent move.
I'll fix that once I find where I packed my clay supplies.
A close up of his crown;
Annndd...just for fun, and show a little of his poseability, here's one of Thrandy, before his haircut, on my little baby Pegasus pony I put together.
Hope you like him.
