|more fakie luv & a baby merpony

I took my grandpa shopping for groceries on Saturday & found this at the dollar store next door. It's a fakie in the most garish shade of translucent green. It even has sparkles! I'm sure Hasbro wouldn't make anything this toxic looking. (Or would they? I just thought about G1 Starhopper. However, that one is a more pleasant shade of green and not so yellow.) Yes, fakies do have their uses. ^_^
They had other ones in pink, blue, orange, and purple.
I doubt this is from a factory producing real Hasbro ponies. Even though the eyes look pretty good. The pony smells like chemicals...not too pleasant. Hopefully, the scent will fade with time. A bath didn't help.
The quality control is not that great. The pony's feet don't rest completely on the ground. It's mane only has one row and the tail is actually a ring of rooted hair. Well, I can't complain too much since she was only $1. I'm turning this one into a "radioactive themed" custom pony. ^_^
And here's the real baby merpony. I was planning on leaving the tail fin pearlescent white, but it doesn't look finished. So, it's getting coat of yellow-green glaze.
