Lots of new custom ponies! For those of you waiting for customs, the finished ones will likely ship at the end of the week...I'm going to give them a few days to dry & if there are any last second changes.
Click on the icons to reach their respective pages.

Delicious

Morbid Delusions

Stripes the black & white zebra

Raspberry Stripes the pink zebra

Chococherry Delite



The reindeer ponies are coming along nicely. Still have quite a bit of work to do. Yes, the antlers are fuzzy. ^_^ The harnesses are made of ribbons and the bow & bells are stitched on with red floss.

The other two ponies, the mystery pegasus and Iridescent Nights got re-painted. I didn't like the finish on them, so they were completely re-painted.

Mmmm...I love the way the fuzzy antlers turned out. It was the idea of someone I work with. ^_^

Those are SO beautiful! I wish my ceramics were so lovely and cuddly looking as your ponies. <3 But tell me - however did you get the pony to smell like chocolate? Is it a spray, or in the paint?

Hello! I used some chocolate-scented oils & brushed them onto the pony. The base color isn't painted. I don't think the smell is as strong as Hasbro's scented ponies, though.

Awww, look at the little harnesses! So are they technically reindeer or caribou? Having been born in Alaska, I always like to make sure that the term "reindeer" gets used correctly. ;-)

Hmmmm...interesting. I think they're supposed to be Reindeer since they are wearing harnesses & going to be Christmas gifts. ^_^

What is the difference between the two? I live in sunny California...no Reindeer or Caribou here. ^_~

Are the reindeer ponies a custom for someone too or are you making them for yourself?


Cuz...um...I want one.
Badly.

Hi there. The Reindeer ponies are commissioned works...unfortunately, they're already sold. I really like the way they turned out, so I might be making some more of them. However, they are really technically challenging, so it might be a while.

Re: Cute

Thank you for the comment. The fuzzy stuff is used for scrapbooking. I just brushed glue on the antlers & sprinkled the fuzz on. ^_^

Re: so great

Thank you! The antlers were made from a 2 part polymer, like Apoxie Sculpt.

All the finished ones look fabulous!! Love the 3d iciing...and I have a special sort of love for the zebras-they are fantastic!!

The reindeer made me go "aww" out loud. SO cute! I adore the fuzzy antlers especially.

Delicious came out beautifully. Mmm...Stripes kicks serious butt, and Raspberry Stripes actually reminds me of pink tiger stripes a la Claires' accessories and whatnot girly stuff. Very cute.

Chococherry is ADORABLE. I love the color combination, and the curls.

And of course, the reindeer ponies. Will one of them be sporting a Rudolph nose? *smirk* That might actually be a cute accessory, though I'm not sure how you'd pull it off. As has been said, the fuzzy antlers rock. Are you using the same fluff/fuzz that So-Soft customizers use? *is curious*

Thank you for the comments, especially on Chococherry, since I designed her. ^_~

The reindeer aren't going to have lighted noses, although that would be interesting! I think the people who make custom so-softs use the same stuff...just loose flocking that was made for crafts & scrapbooking.

The reindeer are impressing me! Very much look forward to seeing them finished! For some reason the zebras just amuse me. Very nice execution on the designs overall, the stripes are freakin' impressive. Delicious is beautiful...wish I'd thought of her. Chocoberry is making me hungry. Far fonder of Morbid Delusions than I thought I'd be from the concept sketches...

Thanks! I just posted a pic of the Reindeer in the next Livejournal entry...more pictures coming soon. ^_^

The stripes on the zebras were driving me nuts. Seriously a LOT harder than one would expect.

I also wish I thought of Delicious' design...it's simple, but effective. ^_^

Morbid Delusions is one colorful pony! I also think the finished one does looks better than the sketches. ^_^

Oh my!

Chocoberry Delite is still available?! She's just adorable. I love 3_D symbols, and I love curly-haired ponies.

I've sent you an e-mail asking to put her on hold for me if no one's claimed her yet. ^_^

Re: Oh my!

Hi there. Unfortunately, someone else already placed her on hold. There should be more curly haired cake ponies coming soon, though. I really like them. ^_^
