Things my eyes have seen on Taobao
« on: February 04, 2018, 02:10:40 AM »
I didn't get Holly Dash, but I did score a fakie of her.  :P  To my surprise, she turned out to be Fashion Styling size!

"My Little Horse."  Amazing.

More pics of her packaging:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Her hair is, ehhh, not the best.  But not total garbage.  There is only one row of hair plugs in her mane, which is disappointing.  (Real FS ponies have four rows.)  Also her tail is the typical "hair plugs in the butt" fakie style.

The interesting thing to me is that they were clearly trying to mimic Holly Dash's actual colors, even if they didn't quite hit the mark.

If anyone is interested in her, here's a link to her.  (Am assuming it's okay to post since that's a merchandise site like Amazon, not an auction site?) She's pretty cute, really.

I think it's the randomness of choosing her design, out of all the better known designs, and out of all the names written on the box...

I remember my sister mentioning seeing a pony-image-branded fakie in...maybe Malaysia called 'My Lovely Horse'. It inspired a lot of jokes about the Father Ted sitcom (which may only be appreciated by British or Irish arena people, but anyhow). I haven't seen this one before though xD the box is very blatant.

Thanks you guys!  Here's a picture of her after getting her hair washed.  It helped her a lot.

Also, I'm changing the title of the thread (previously "Did I get Holly Dash??  (No.)") so I can make this my general "look at this weird thing I found on Taobao!" thread instead of flooding the board with individual posts.  'Cause let me tell you . . . I spend a LOT of time looking up weird stuff on Taobao.

Speaking of, did you know ponies hatch from eggs?

And did you know those eggs can hatch out alicorn fakie Baby Glory?

Whoa, that's some impressively long hair on Not-Holly!

My new Fluttershy FS has only 2 rows of hair plugs :( So sadly the one row is not too far off how things are at the moment...

That baby glory...omg. That is so weird and yet so cute at the same time. Those eyes O.O Please share more weird like this :)

Also Not Holly looks better now you've done her hair. I admit I still find the purple kind of jarring with her symbol but her actual colour is pretty weird as well.  Her hair colours with the purple body actually go nicely. She looks like a cross between Holly and Luna. Holluna? O.o.

Oh fakie Holly looks better!  I love that Alicorn Glory from an egg too!

I have to stay away from AliExpress, I can waste the entire day on there ...
