Recently, a "Customize a My Little Pony" swap started: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80288.0.  I signed up, and decided to practice a bit before I got my partner.  After a quick trip to Toys R' Us, I came up with this, the "Starry Night" pony:




I used this tutorial: http://www.cloverflowers.com/custom/Tutorials.html

The only thing I had a tough time with was rehairing the pony.  I only had really curly dolls' hair, which kept twisting all over the place.  But I'm pretty happy with it, as it is my first customization.

My sister would love that!  I hated My Little Ponys growing up, but that's awesome!

That looks amazing!  Where did you get the tail and mane hair? I've been having trouble finding some.

You did a really amazing job!

I bought some fake hair for dolls at the craft store.  I was also thinking hair extensions might work. 

And thanks for the compliments!  I'm going to try to take a clearer picture of the painting today in the daylight.
