My Customized Ponys

Back in May I decided I wanted to try customizing some g4 ponys, so I bought a big bag of slightly baity ones on eBay. Mostly the bodies are in good shape, lots of haircuts, kinda dirty and one has been chewed on...a lot, poor thing.

So I thought I’d make a thread that I can add to as I customize them rather than a separate thread for each pony I make :smile:

Well I finally got one done!
Meet Cupcake my first custom pony (technically she’s my second but the other is still waiting for hair, I ordered a rerooting tool but it’s taking forever to ship :/ ) :flutter2:

She is a birthday gift for my mom who is totally NOT a pony person but she likes Fluttershy because her colors remind her of these cupcakes her mom used to bring home. When I was cleaning up the ponys she saw this one and asked if I would customize it for her:satisfied:
I forgot to take a pic before I started, but she looked pretty much like the other one here except her tail was half cut off and for some reason her hair was sticky and would not come clean. I ended up brushing some baby powder into it which took care of the sticky and made her hair a slightly lighter pink

Pluto and Cupcake are both nicely done and the story behind Cupcake is really sweet :ponylove:

(side note, IMO the episode "Power Ponies" needs to be renamed and every mention of the team redubbed with a new name. In the context of a Justice League/Avengers pastiche, that name is misleading and lazy)

Thank you! She sits happily on her dresser now :satisfied:
ive never seen the episode so I’m not sure what you mean, why is the name misleading?

@Leave a Whisper sorry! I never saw your comment, but thanks! :lolpony:

@ladyaquitaine Thank you! :satisfied:
@Skybreeze I actually painted her body with acrylics cause I couldn’t find a good purple shade of Rit dye ^^; but I’m glad you thought she looked dyed! That means I didn’t leave noticeable brush strokes :D
And thanks so much! :flutter2: Those webs were pretty tiny lol. I did have trouble with her tail though, couldn’t get it to hold a curl no matter what I did

:eek: You must teach me your ways of painting with no visible brush strokes. <3 Funny you say that because the Rit dye I just used for my Sea Pony can get very dark exactly the same as what you did. Hence mainly why I thought it was Rit. ;p

Haha very watered down paint and something like 16 layers is my secret! Really? I didn’t actually try it out, when I was looking in stores the purples I saw looked either too light or more of a reddish purple than I wanted so I did paint instead. Good to know they can get darker for future ponys though!
