The Princesses have custom modifications to their moulds - there's this large cavity that a very substantial base of the medallion slots into, and a honkin' huge plastic washer that holds it in place inside the body.  They're like icebergs, it's kind of unreal how big the anchor of the medallion is!  I can only guess they wanted to be 100% sure no little kid could pull them apart, and it seems to have done the job.  Pretty rare to find a Princess without their medallions.

G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)

Thank you ^.^

I didn't sculpt the symbols or the horn, I transplanted them from a very poorly Princess Amethyst.

The horn was easy to transfer and glue in place, but the symbols where a different matter. I had to cut holes in his sides to exactly the right size.

Oh gosh. The dreaded surgery.. lol. He's gorgeous though.

Do you think someone accepting a commission that involves the removal of those symbols should charge a little more? It seems like a butt-load more work.

Yes, if it where me and I had accepted the commission, it would cost a little more.

Pony surgery is a serious thing!

TRUTH!

Notice that I have only made ONE such custom :lol:

I'm going to make my custom princess ponies symbols. I was thinking eith using airdrying clay or the thing I'm going to use for Gusty's body. Which would be better? No cutting required.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.
