i love world of warcraft.  and i love crafting.  and when i was a little girl, i loved my little pony.  i guess it's only natural that i decided to customize a my little pony with a warcraft theme.



her name is shadow bolt!  she's based off of my main character's main spell which is... shadow bolt.  imagine that.  lol.

she started off as firefly, a pink pony with blue hair.  when i was a kid it was my favorite pony.  unfortunately mine was sold long ago at a garage sale, so i bought a bag of random ponies on ebay and firefly was one of them!  i ripped out all the hair and the tail and scrubbed off the paint.  then i dyed her purple.  there are a few spots on the back from the dye, but shhh!  you can't see them!  i added some paint to the wings and painted the shadow bolt symbol on her butt.  i painted the eyes too.  i'm so happy with how they turned out!  i added some glitter to the wings and shadow bolt symbol.  unfortunately it's peeling a little, but i scraped that part off.  i think it was just poor quality glitter glue (of course the only brand that i saw that had purple).  and i glued purple rhinestones to her face.  i think they're pretty.  i also did a full rehair with the same kind of hair that the original my little ponies have.  the rehair wasn't as annoying as i thought.  that part took an hour and a half at the most, and that time included cleaning up the blood from when i stabbed myself with the reroot tool.

more pics to show off detail:





customizing my little ponies is insanely easy and addictive.  i'm working on another warcraft themed pony right now.  he's gonna take a while because i'm making him a chain mail saddle.  yeah.

here's the sites i used for the tutorials:
basic instructions:http://www.cloverflowers.com/custom/Tutorials.html
hair reroot:http://www.dollyhair.com/reroottutorial.htm

i used the second site for the mane because the first one's tutorial was more complicated and time consuming.  other than that i used the first site for everything.

My nearly-two-year-old is MADLY IN LOVE with My Little Ponies for no apparent reason (but it's so adorable so who cares) ... she calls them "Nee" (which is her mispronunciation of 'neigh')... I should totally find an old one and redo it for her. <3
Especially b/c the new ponies have ridiculously long, curly manes, I find. Messy as soon as they are out of the box, SO badly.

thanks for all the compliments!  i can't wait to finish up the next one.

pony dying is so much faster and easier than painting the whole thing.  i also think it looks nicer because it still looks like the original vinyl.
