    Hi, everyone!!!

    I recently finished making my set of 4" G4 ponies and their 1.5" pets!!! I loved the Winona and Angel Bunny that Applejack and Fluttershy came with, and wondered why the other ponies were gypped of their pets!

    So I set about to make Opalescence for Rarity, Gummy for Pinkie Pie, Owlysius for Twilight Sparkler and Tank for Rainbow Dash. ^^

    Here they are, all together:

    And separately:

    And I added Winona's collar and bell, so here's here photo, too:

    Hope you like them!!!!! Now, I just need to buy a Shining Armor pony to customize into Prince Blueblood! ^.~

    Awesome Applejack hat! I think that's one of the best hats for AJ I've seen.
    The pets are adorable, great job! I like how you left Twilight's hair longer.
    I really, really, like everything!

    Good job. We customizers need to pick up the slack where Hasbro failed. You really captured Opalescent correctly. Your girls even have show accurate hair.

    Love them! And, if you don't mind my asking, how did you ever style the hair to such a lovely state?

    Awww, thank you SO MUCH, everypony!!! :hugs: I'm so happy you like them!
    I couldn't resist buying them---they're just too cute and it was fun to style their hair and tails to be more accurate. (I can't believe Hasbro sells them so....bland/incorrect! How do they get away with it?!?)
    And when Applejack and Fluttershy came with their pets, I couldn't help but make the rest!!! (I'm a nut when it comes to 'completion.') ^^;;

    MarinaKirby-san, for Applejack's hat, it's actually a "1984 Western Barbie" hat! I cut the front shape and then painted the whole thing a tan color. It fits perfectly and really makes her! (Again, I can't believe Hasbro gets away without giving Applejack her hat! I mean, she never (well, almost never) is seen without it!!!! :laughs: Thank you for liking it!!!!

    Thank you so much, GloriaFan-san! I'm a dollmaker, so I'm used to styling doll hair, and so I already had an idea what to do with them. Fluttershy, again, I left alone, because she was already good enough. ^^ (Wow, she's lucky, ne?) But the rest all needed help.

    Applejack just needed some bangs added and her hat, so she was simple enough.

    Rarity, too, only needed her mane curled into a ringlet style. I used a thin 'hot stick' curler and boiled her hair, three times. (From experience, nylon hair needs to be 'permed' 3 times before it will stay in style for any length of time.) Then, I sprayed it with a shot of hair spray to keep it in place even more, but that's not necessary. Just an extra precaution. ^^

    For Rainbow Dash, I cut her hair/styled it but I also made the trimmed hair from her mane in a plug to push into her tail, so ALL the rainbow colors are in the tail, too and not just the blue/purple! I think it really made a difference to her accuracy. ^^

    Twilight Sparkle needed a similar treatment----I cut her bangs, moved the streaks to the correct places, took the remnants I cut from her bangs, and made a plug, to stick into her tail to make it more indigo than pink. (For some reason, Hasbro gave her way too much pink in her tail) Then, I boiled her bangs in place (using a chenille/fuzzy stick to tie around her head to keep the bangs flat against her head) 3 times. I also straightened her mane and tail at the same time, and trimmed the ends 'straight' blunt across.

    Pinkie Pie didn't need any trimming, or additions---just curling. I took small 4" pieces of the chenille/fuzzy sticks, then took small tufts of her hair and made 'curlers.' Particularly, I made certain to make her front 'bang' curls stick out the front.
    I put about a dozen on her mane and 8 in her tail. Then, I boiled her 3 times, waited until she dried, removed the 'curlers' carefully, trimmed the ends neat, and then gave her a few shots of hairspray to keep the curls in place for a long time. ^^

    And thank you so much for liking the pets, too!!!! They were fun to create!!!! I'm glad you all like Opal so much! She's my favorite, too!!

    Thanks again, min-na!!! I REALLY appreciate your comments so much!! :hugs:

    Aww, thank you, Brightside-san!! :hugs: They did come out so cute, I think!!! It's my 2nd Opalescence attempt (the first came out as I wanted BUT she was a tad too big, so I remade her again, but smaller.) and I'm satisfied now with them all.


    Thanks again!! :hugs:
