What to do about these Customs?

I used to customize ponies, but I wasn't always too happy with the result, and now some of them aren't even in the best condition anymore, after being stored in my
cupboard and kept on a shelf cats have jumped on. So, does anyone have any ideas on how I can jazz them up? I'm not willing to completely re-customize them, however.

This one here was supposed to be gold themed. She's maybe a little too boring?

P1560539.JPG

This one was made from a second-hand G3 Pinkie Pie in pretty good condition, and perhaps she should have just been left that way. Her hair's a little crazy, and overall she looks kind
of amateur.

The hair I used for this one is on the stiff side...

P1560534.JPG

This one could use some work. And she's gotten these dark specks on her head. I'm not sure if it's just dirt or mold. (BTW, the Rainbow Dash I used for her was second-hand, so that's why her one wing is damaged.)

Here's a Kawaii pony (made from a fakie, actually.) Do you think she needs anything? Her unraveled embroidery hair could probably use some styling.

And here's one more (also made from a fakie.) She's a little bland, and her hair isn't totally tame. Her horn does have glow-in-the-dark paint on it, though.

So what do you think I should do about these ponies?

Hmmm that's a tough one. Maybe add ribbon and bow accessories? And sprucing up the hair like Twishy said I second that.

If there's paint work you feel is incomplete, you could try blending with blending pigments (like soft medium neutrals)

If the bodies feel tacky to the touch at all, you could try spraying them with testors sealant. I'd just hold them by the hair and spray away

It's been a while since I last posted. In that time, I've been working on the ponies on and off. Here's what I've got with the pink one so far:

I touched up her symbol, gave her some makeup, a necklace, a jacket, boots, and turned her mane into a mohawk! So she's kinda punk-style, but instead of being mean, she's love and heart themed :D

Wow I absolutely love the concept of a punk love-themed pony, your revamps are going so well! :flutter2: I also really loved what you've done with the nature-themed one, I feel like the pops of green from the new necklace and the forehead gem really complete her <3 Your customs are great starts and I'm excited to see what else you'll do with them!

Whoooa! Very vibrant and i love the tiny beads. She reminds me of this tiny tree one of my late grandmothers had, made out of metal, wire, tiny little beads for the flowers and bigger ones for the fruits.
