I have a very special place in my heart for My Little Pony. I also have an equally special place for pop culture, geekery, and all around weirdness. I've seem amazing custom My Little Pony toys around the internet for a while and always was amazed at how freaking incredible they were! (Have you SEEN Mari Kasurinen's work?) So when I picked up a handful of G3 ponies at a thrift store the other day, I knew that I was going to have to try some out. This little guy was originally a G3 Breezy.



Yoshi seemed like a good first option. No rehairing (I tried once on a Barbie and the thread broke halfway through the project. Broke my heart.) and the painting would be simple enough. So I blocked out a Saturday and made this little guy! I have a couple progress pictures on my instagram http://instagram.com/unicornwhiskers, so check that out if you're interested.

I used super cheap Acrylic paints and some sculptey clay. And love! Lots of love. <3

Hehe, I love it! I recently picked up some thrift store ponies myself because I'm dying to try some customs. Wish me luck!

Shocked!!!!! yoshiiii! I adore it! I didn't know polymer clay could be used like that to mod ponies, can you just pop it right in the oven?  And have you thought about adding a cutie mark like a pair of yoshi eggs? I guess he doesn't really need it because of the shell but it would be cute. Great job.

The polymer clay worked like a charm. I kept an eye on it while it was in the oven, but there are guidelines online that you can follow. That's a great idea for the cutie mark! I might add that. Smiley
