Happy Easter everybody! Lent is over and I'm no longer vegetarian. Whew...talk about a daily reminder! ^_^ My freezer is still full of fake chicken burgers and fake steak strips, LOL!
On another note, I had a chance to work on some customs this weekend.


Banana Rama is being re-rooted. The Kanekalon hair isn't 100% straightened yet. Also, I still want to make minor adjustments to her symbols.

Quinny's symbols are finished and she will be re-rooted next. Her symbols look sooooo much nicer in real-life...each snowflake is carefully detailed with tiny hair-line brush strokes! Also, you can't see it in this pic, but she has a little white snowflake on her magnet hoof. ^_^

Flanker was cleaned & given several coats of white paint. Next step: purple paint!

Here's one of my own projects, a TAF G1 pony tentatively named "Floral Enchantment". Symbols were painted freehand - not perfect and it's meant to be like that! I'm almost finished...just need some more "vines" on the non-display side. Her eyes will be re-painted in pink. Also, she will be rose scented. ^_^ Ummmmm...I'm thinking of a blend of red/pink hair, but I think dark green would look good too.

The paint on Quinny looks amazing. *stares*

And I thoroughly enjoy the whimsical roses on Floral Enchantment. They look fabulous; I'd love to see her with dark green hair myself, or maybe a mix to match the whites and greens in her symbol?

Beautiful ponies as always. ^_^

Thank you! I love the snowflakes on Quinny. ^_^

I thought of the green hair because I had it out for Banana Rama. It provides a really nice contrast.

Thanks! Re-rooting is painful when you're first starting out. Take frequent breaks, listen to some music, etc. Also, make sure you have really good lighting. Some people re-root in front of the TV. It makes things go faster. ^_^

Re: ooh (drools) pritty ponies

Thank you! ^_^ It's hard to remember all of the passwords...I have them all written down so I won't forget them.

Awwww...that is very nice of you to make a pony in my honor. I'd love to see that pony, if you have some pictures. ^_^

3 cats?! Oh my, that sounds like a handful! I love cats, but I don't have any right now because I'll be moving again in 1 or 2 years. After I get my own place, I'll be adopting a bunch of them! ^_^

Ponies

Wow, they are fabulous. Just an opinion, I think Floral Enchantment should have dark green hair, because she has a magenta/ maroon color already, and less green. Love your ponies =).

Goodness!

Your My Little Pony customs are amazing! You are definately a pro! I could learn something about customizing from you. ;-) I hope I can be as good as you some day!

Re: Ponies

Thanks for the comment. Yes, I agree with you...I think green would be very nice for Floral Enchantment. Otherwise, there would be too much pink! ^_^

LOL, this is the 3rd vote for green. I'm so glad I mentioned it before re-rooting her in pinks/reds!

Quinny's symbol looks amazing! Floral Enchantment looks lovely as well. But there's a stange similarity to her and my grandmum's rosebush. X3
Banana Rama looks shnazzy! o.0 Didn't say that.

LOL, thanks for the comments! Floral Enchantment is going to smell like a rosebush too...she is going to be scented after I'm finished with the painting/re-rooting. ^_^

Thank you! Quinny was re-rooted in pale blue with iridescent tinsel. There is a picture of her in the next post.
