I underwent a bit of a sewing marathon this week ^^“.  I felt slightly uninspired whilst working on Scootaloo (even though I desperately need one for my collection >.<) and after taking a look at my pony plush collection, I felt a sudden and irresistible urge to re-plush Rarity.  I’ve plushed Rarity twice before, and kept the second one for myself.  It was my first pony with embroidery details so it’s pretty ancient xD.

I’ve improved quite a bit since then, and I’ve been wanting to revamp her hair (esp her forelock) for a while now, so this was an extremely exciting project for me.  Once I started, I couldn’t stop!  >.< Argh!  I wish I could sew all day!  

In fact, I had so much fun re-plushing Rarity that I’ve decided to re-plush the entire main 6!!!!  So poor little Scootaloo will have to wait a while :S  Rarity’s forelock was the highlight of this project, I plan to use the same concept for Flutterhsy’s hair too.

Just like my previous Rarities, I’ve decided to use 2 shades of purple for her hair to try and mimic its shimmering gradient.  For some annoying reason, my camera could NEVER capture that gorgeous royal purple colour properly -.- so it looks a bit weird in these pics *sigh*.  I didn’t do much re-working on her tail, it’s still 3D (instead of flat curls) to add volume.

I guess another little change worth mentioning is - my ponies have nostrils now!!!  xD  they can breeeeeeaaaathe!  LOL.

Anyway - I hope you guys like her!  I think she’s a huge improvement from my previous one :3 and I’m so proud to add her to my collection.

Details:
*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics
*Minky colours: Snow White, Purple, Mauve
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, craft foam, wire in her hair, and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, gutermann rayon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 16” tall, 18" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front right hoof

As aforementioned, I’ll be re-plushing the main 6 for my upcoming projects.  Fluttershy’ll be next most likely.  And I’m hoping to plush two Fluttershies at once so I can keep one and sell one.  I can’t wait to re-pattern her forelock!!!!  >w<

Okay, I better publish this post now…. and go tend to other important things…. since I’ve been neglecting the other aspects of my life for the last few days!  

“You know, Red. You’re my best friend in the whole world. Next to Mistah J of course.” @ckentx01 (Facebook.com/saffelsphotography) does it again with this stunning photo of @tracihines as #poisonivy and myself as #harleyquinn from our shoot a couple weeks ago at @ocwonderlandstudios and I just cannot even handle how perfectly it captures both characters. This shoot was a dream come true and each photo brings me pure joy. #saffelsphotography #cosplay #cosplayphotoshoot #batman #dc #dccomics #dcuniverse #comicbook #comicbookcosplay #wocc #womenofcomicbookcosplay #batmancosplay #harleyquinncosplay #poisonivycosplay #pamelaisley #harleenquinzel #gothamcitysirens #roguesgallery #suicidesquad #birdsofprey #gotham #friendshipismagic #besties #harleyandivy
