Princess Tragedy's pics were just posted. Sorry for the delay in the update...I had some unexpected house guests this weekend.

This month's desktop also features this alternative Valentine's day pony.
And a brand new piercing tutorial for you brave souls. ^_~

New project: a pink pony. More details shortly.

It looks amazing! I love her hair!

When you reroot using saran hair, does it tend to break when you pull it through the holes? I'm new to customizing and that one little snag is threatening to make me give up. :(

Thanks for the comment! ^_^

No, I don't have a problem with the saran hair breaking. Your hair plugs may be too large for the holes. Or maybe the pony's plastic is too hard. You could try using a needle tool to enlarge the holes before re-rooting each plug.

Whoa she is stunning! I love her symbol and especially the burgundy eyeshadow, it really brings out her yellow eyes. :>

It's very interesting to know that you could use a hairdryer to tame down the hair, I've always relied on conditioner or hot water and even then the saran can lie too flat against the pony and just look limp lol. I'll definitely need to try that out.

Thanks for the comment. ^_^

Be careful with the hairdryer. It will melt saran hair. Use the lowest setting possible at a distance. Saran hair IS really limp. I think the layered cut helped out with this pony.
