I made Midnight for Varkolak, who was my partner for the unofficial newbie swap. She was originally Rarity and rehaired with Dollyhair's Midnight Magic blend and a touch of Snowflake. I painted her with gouache and added touches of glitter to the snow and her eyes. I moved the tail hole up to make it more natural looking. It might be hard to tell because I'm not the best painter, but on her side I painted a snowy landscape with the full moon shining bright. She has darker blue seal points on her legs, nose, around her eyes, the backs of her ears and on her horn.

Her name is unofficial, I just call her that because of the hair blend. Varkolak can name her whatever she wants.

Oh yeah, I just have to brag a little... both of their heads still move, even though the sealer I use makes them a little sticky. So that's two for two... We'll see how long I can go before I break a neck plug. Silly

They are both wonderful I love the colour combinations you have chosen for both - well done on the neck plugs, I have not got my hand on any G4s yet but dreading that part when I do!

Both very nicely done. I like the dark bold colours.

I'm all over the candy cane pony. And you kept the heads? You use some special tool? Or dig you cut the plug out and glue it back in later? I want to keep mine still turning but I don't know how good rubber glue is

Thanks everyone Smile I appreciate all of the nice comments. I think I'm addicted to this now, lol.

I cut the plug out so I could add the tail, then glued it back in with super glue. I used a lot in order to prevent it from being pushed down into the body. I shaved the hole in the neck a bit to make it wider, then I used pencils and the handle of my x-acto knife to stretch it out. I had to be really fast and forceful in putting it back on before the hole shrank back down, and it took me a couple of tries. The only downside to this is that for some reason Midnight's head doesn't sit flush anymore, but it's on securely.
