    Months ago when the release date for the 4th and final book in the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer was announced, I started the planning work on these girls.
    The Twilight saga is a series of fictional books about vampire love, that I for one, can't get enough of <3
    I based the ponies on the book covers, sculpting each of the main symbols to represent each book (i had to wait until the 4th book cover was released to finalize all this) Twilight's apple, New Moon's flower, Eclipse's broken ribbon, and Breaking Dawn's queen chess piece. But I wanted each pony to include all of the books as well. so the other representations were painted.
    (all done in acrylic)
    Their golden eyes are representative of our favorite 'vegetarian' family ;)
    The symbol on the NDS I added as a last minute whim. Its the Cullen family crest created for the upcoming movie version of the first book Twilight! (Dec 12!)
    The hair is 8 colors from dollyhair, each chosen to represent the 8 main vampire/human characters (if you want to think of the black as the wolfs/Jacob...fine)
    'black magic' for Alice, 'gingerbread' for Jasper, 'pumpkin pie' for Edward, 'espresso' for Bella, 'chocolate fudge' for Emmett, 'sunlight' for Rosalie, 'goldilocks' for Carlisle, and 'butterscotch' for Esme.
    they each have their own 'bella bracelet' *sparkle*
    I met my goal and had these girls done for the release of the book (August 2) and they went to the midnight release part with me :D
    okay...on to pictures....
    I'll start with a group shots

    Oh my God those are beautiful! I haven't read the books but I've always wanted to, since they take place near my second home in P.A. This just gives me another reason to track them down at the library!

    What an awesome work you did there o_O
    I have only read the first part of twilight so far but have the others at home since xmas..
    I simply love the cover illustrations (unfo, the first part I have is the movie edition,so doesn't feature the aplle with hands pic :<) they are so simple yet beautiful.
    the idea for adding different hair colors to represent the main chars is also brilliant

    all in all very awesome customs :D
    What comments did you get at the release party? I'm quite curious how people liked them :p
