Thank you very much for the tips and suggestions on my last post about her! :lolpony:

So I managed to get her done. Here she is:

I went more with the colours from The Princess Promenade. I found some netting from old kids dressing up costumes and used that. At first I tried to go freehand with cutting out but it was too tricky so I made myself some stencils. The first flower I made was too thin and the colours were pale so I had to glue two pieces of each together.

It was difficault to get the flower to stay on the pin thing. I didn't want to glue it on because if I ever need to redo it, I can get it off easily. The pieces had to be stitched together and wrapped around it and it seems to stay on well. It's a lot easier to put back in than getting it out when she's warmed up.
When I first took the old one off, I had forgotten the cutie mark was supposed to be glittery. The new orange petals have some sparkle to them in person so that is very nice.

I am very happy with the result. The new cutie mark has made her look a lot better. I just need to somehow fix her puffy hair (I have tried quite a bit to) and she will be looking even more beautiful!

Here are a couple more pictures:

Quick question: are posts like these more better suited for Show and Tell or is discussion fine?

Look at you go, boldly going beyond the unknown. ;) I love seeing you go through and fix up your collection and trying new things and you've been doing wonderfully so far.

As far as where to post. It's totally fine for your post to be here, you could have also posted it in the "Customs" area as you've restored and some-what customized her. :winkpony:

Wow I'm happy to see this project of yours coming together too! You did an awesome job, she looks a lot happier now with new netting, and pulling colors from the animation was a great choice!
I chose the animation's colours since they were a lot brighter than the original :satisfied:
If I did try to make it like the old one, I don't think I'd have the right shades
