Post by: Hookin Flamingo on September 22, 2006 06:23:13 PM
HERE IT IS!!!
The newest My Little Pony Swap.
We have lost count as to which number this will be so we will not even try  :D
But...here is the general idea...
Go buy a My Little Pony then, RE MAKE IT...
Re-paint it, give it new eyes, make it some clothes, give it fur, or what ever you like. Just make it crafty!
You will get a copy of the questionair that your partner will fill out.
Then think up some ideas of what they would like on a pony.
PM them or talk to them in the thread but, just get your heads together and come up with something FUN!!!

Easy enough! Right?
Well here is all of the normal craft swap info that you have to know for the swap...

This is a really cool idea. But, where would one buy a My Little Pony? ??? I never see them, except for the occasional one at the thrift store wth crayon all over it and half the hair ripped out.

Also, moose_hat - Hooray for your TMBG icon!

I might!
One of the things I love about swaps is that they get me to make things that I never would, otherwise. And a reconned MLP definitely falls into that category!  :D

Did anyone else smooze their ponies? I got in a lot of trouble for that; which is totally understandable now. :)
Smooze= the bad purple goo in the movie. ;)

I want to do this, but am afraid mine would suck, as I have never made one before.

I haven't made one before either, so what? There always has to be a first time of torturing a cute MLP ;D

I found a pony to torture ;D I'm so in now. And I don't feel bad about doing it cos she doesn't look pretty and needs a makeover.

I have lots of ideas for this.  Now I just need to find a pony.   :(  I went to the store where I had seen them a week ago, and they were all gone.  Whoops.  I hope I can track one down soon.

Oh this sounds like so much fun.
Too bad I missed it and well it doesn't matter I have to be a member for a month, not 3-4 days!!  (ughhhh... hurry up October go by fast)

I remember pulling the tails out of mine and my sisters and putting them on other ponies, mix and matching.

I was able to find a pony! Then I found one I liked better, so now I have an extra. :D The cashier at JoAnns gave me a weird look when I mentioned what all the supplies were for.

So I got a couple ponies today.  One to experiment on, and one to make for real, though I am still on the lookout for one in a better pose.  I had a very limited selection at the toy store.    :-\

So I have a question for those of you that are more experienced in this realm.  Is there a good way to get their manes out?  I got the tail, no problem, but the mane is giving me a hard time.  One of my ideas is dependent on being able to rehair my pony, so if I can't figure out a good way to do this, I'll have to go with an alternate plan.  Thanks.  Any other suggestions you might have for a newbie would also be welcome.  I have a feeling this is going to require some experimentation, though.

VERY CAREFULLY take off the ponys head and you can remove the hair from the inside. Then it will also be easier for you to re-root her hair!
I have reconned many many dolls and critters such as ponies so please PM me if you have any questions  ;)


PS ALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!
TAKE BEFORE PICS OF YOUR PONIES!   PLEASE!

I just stole a pony from my daughter [2] who wasn't playing with her at all since she got her [about a year!]. The only person who ever combed this pony's hair [came with a brush] was the 4-yr old son of my neighbor's so I don't feel guilty at all. Otherwise they just used to throw her around so I will be happy to give her to a friendlier home... after a makeover :P

All the newer ponies have magnets so they can "magically" open things (like accessories in the playsets). Just something to keep in mind so you don't display your pony on top of your computer or monitor.  :) I think it's only the ponies made in the last 8 years or so (with the hearts on their hooves).

We have several ponies with magnets in their feet (really they are my daughters...I swear lol)
But, we often stick them to the fridge  ;D

Wel you have to be a member for at least a month
And you have to have at least 15 post.
But, you can start with any swap that some one will let you join.
There are newbie swaps every now and then if you would like to start that way. But, if you ask a organizer very nicely and swear not to flake then you should be able to join just about any swap.
If all goes well with this swap then we can do another  ;D
