I'd been looking at all kinda of custom My Little Pony's, and after reading a whole whack-load of different tutorials, and tips I set off to try for myself.
I made two, one for myself, and one for a friend. I'm fairly pleased with the results.

This is the one I made for my friend:
I re-rooted both mane and tail

I repainted the symbol on her rear:

repainted her eyes:

added some rhinestones:

This is the one I made for myself:
again the mane and tail were completely re-rooted

the symbol was taken off and a new one put in its place:

the eyes were redone:

and some other details were added:

I really like the white one. Totally awesome. Are you just customizing old my little ponies? And where did you get the hair for them?


for gods sake. Save Leah.

ditto.  i'd love to know how you did the hair, because even as a little kid i sometimes pulled their tails out by accident, and ALWAYS had a pain-in-the-butt time of putting them back in.

Here's the re-hairing section of a great custom pony tute: http://www.cloverflowers.com/custom/TutPage003.html

You have to take the head off first though (other sections of that site walk you through that).

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!
