pro tinsel or no tinsel?
« on: April 30, 2018, 08:15:58 AM »
hello,

I saw some princess ponies the other day and I was wondering...what are your thoughts on tinsel?
Do you like the shiny stuff in their hair, do you dislike it because if it's ruined, it's ruined forever?
Or maybe you don't have an opinion, which is fine too.

Also, are there ways to replace tinsel? like new tinsel or glitter hair, or do you just leave it? let me know, what you think.

Personally, I don't really like tinsel because I can't really style it and I'm too afraid to do anything with tinsel haired dolls/ponies.

I'm curious to see all your opinions, please let me know :)

Personally, not a fan of tinsel because I find it REALLY hard to brush straight when washing a dirty pony's hair.
I will admit it does look pretty, but to me, the brushing outweighs the cute factor.

Tinsel and I do not get on so I try to avoid it.

I have a near mint G2 Prince Firefly and two from-new HQG1C ponies with tinsel - I love all three but  it would have to be an exceptional pony for me to get one in a condition where it needs TLC.

I love the idea behind tinsel however I find it always gets bent and crimped and sticks up in all ways, giving my ponies lovely perpetual bed head.

I dont like how unruly it can get, however I do like the look of it in the right amounts.

I thought I posted this already, but I guess not XD

What do you guys think of the tinsel in pony hair?
Do you like it, and why?
Or do you dislike it and why?
are there any replacements for tinsel when rerooting, or do you just ignore the tinsel.
Do you not reroot when there's tinsel?

I'm asking for everbody's personal opinion, not tips per se :)

personally, I don't like tinsel of how easily it falls apart. ALso I'm scared to do things with toys/dolls with tinsel hair.

feel free to comment, I 'd love to hear what you guys think

Tinsel is great... in theory.  In reality, it tends to become wildly kinked and unruly.  It's all very well and good if it's in perfect condition and you don't plan on styling the hair, but the rest of the time it makes ponies look as though they've been dragged backwards through a hedge.  I'd rather avoid the tinsel and keep it simple.  Besides, that's what the Pretty Up accessories were for  :P

When tinsel is in good shape, it's lovely. Once it's been pulled on and damaged, it's nearly impossible to make it look nice again. I've found that the colored tinsel the G1 princesses have is easier to manage the the iridescent tinsel lots of G3s have.

i dont mind it when the older generations have tinsel, but i really dislike the way some g4s have tinsel replacing whole sections of their hair. i'm thinking of the princess parade and rainbow power singles; that thread-like tinsel is SO unruly, and you cant remove it without giving the pony a huge bald spot!

I find tinsel really pretty but it is a pain to keep it in place, it's a shame is doesn't follow the flow of the mane really well. =) Also, it depends on my mood, sometimes I get fed up with tinsel when I see my G3s because too many of them have it. Ponies without tinsel is okay too, after all. ^^ But I have a positive opinion overall.

I like it on a G1 pony--the quality was better back then and you can  touch it without fearing it will break off.

Ill go ahead and bump this into the right forum or you <3

*hoards all the tinsel*

I don't mind tame tinsel, it adds a nice touch, especially on glittery ponies.

I didn't know it would break, though! Were certain gens more prone to that than others?

Wait why are there two of these threads now? Shouldn't this double one get deleted? We already have this one:
