    These are my first ever pony customs, before I ever knew what to do.I've had my Christine pony painted white and sitting around for the longest time before I started my Phantom and Raoul, like a year or more. Now just recently, like last year, I made a Phantom and Raoul. They are all made from earth ponies I had duplicates of. I used some clay I had to make a unicorn horn for Christine and pegasus wings for the Phantom. Their designs are also made in clay, including the Phantom mask.

    Christine is painted with a pearly white paint with 2 black musical notes and a red heart design. The Phantom is painted in a pearly black paint with a pearly white mask, red rose with black ribbon design. Raoul is painted in a pearly sapphire blue paint with a black hot top and a sword design.

    I am a big Phantom of the Opera fan. I saw other peoples customs for it and they were pretty good looking. So for my first attempt, I think I did pretty good. I'm no pro, but if I had the tools and accessories to actually make a good custom I would love to make more customs.

    And another thing, I painted their hair with somewhat watered down paint, this was before I knew you could rehair them with any colors. If I could rehair them without ruining them, I would, that is if I know how to do it or if I had the supplies. So please be nice and tell me what you think about them. Sorry about the somewhat crappy camera quality.

    Beautiful!

    Wow! I don't think painting hair is a catastrophe... it's just another way to go about customizing. Re-hairing isn't integral to creating customs... use whatever method is good for you. They look awesome as they are. Don't worry too much about "rules." I think they're great! I love Phantom of the Opera. Good job! You've represented everybody so well. :rose3:

    thank you all so very much. if i had a better quality camera or an actual brighter room to take the pictures in, they would look so much clearer to see, but i dont, so they kinda suck. for some reason that part of the room, above my bed where the light is, made the picture bright enough to take one that was somewhat easy to see. again, thank you for your compliments.
