*sweat drop* Well... are any of your ponies in bad condition? A pony with a seriously bad hair cut, nonremovable marks on its body, bad symbol or eye paint rub, or pen/marker marks on them is what is considered Custom Bait, or CB for short. Pony collectors tend to shy away from customizing an 80's pony that isn't damaged. So if none of your ponies are damaged in any way, you may want to reconsider customizing them.

Customizing means you would have to do something to the pony which would remove its characteristics. But you probably knew that! *sweat drop again* You'd have to remove symbols, paint new symbols, and either dye or change out the pony's hair.

I don't do customs myself, but I think Dietotaku could help you out with questions. She does customs of G3 (like Kimono) ponies.

I hope I was able to help you out a little.

My Beach Ball is in bad shape...they all are... She was the worst though, he face was completly sucked in. I fixed it, though. I don't think I'll be doing Beach Ball. Glory's in pretty bad shape too, but I might not do her, because she is just too cute.

good idea. if you've got an original idea you really need to get out, g3s are probably better to customize because they're still in production. some people prefer to see baity g1s restored rather than customized. ^_^

Oh! I have a tip! *bounces up and down* You know the white braided ropes on top of the new ponies' packaging? You can take that off, unbraid it, wash it and condition it, dye it to whatever color you want, and it becomes replacement hair!! It's great to use if you found a pony they has a hair cut but the body is still in good condition! :-D

RIT dye works really well, though i'm not sure the ropes take dye as well as real pony hair (it's not quite the same material). though someone posted in livejournal that if you have a dollar general store near you, they sell headbands with fake hair falls attached that come in a variety of colors. and only a buck apiece!
