If unicorns are wrong, then I don't want to be right.

Man I was going to ask if anyone had any documentation of some really religious people being irked by MLP and unicorn toys because it sounded to me like it might be a really isolated incident...and then then some of you said you had memories of that happening to you as kids and even book quotes. Guys, I'm so sorry! That's pretty upsetting. The impulse to stamp out fantasy, especially for kids, is awfully stifling.

Also glad to see all the history about the symbolism of unicorns popping up here. That and unicorn art history is a deep, deep rabbit hole that's intriguing to read up on. Whether unicorn as Christ symbol was due to a translation issue or not, it certainly made its way into a lot of art in history. I'd love to see someone analyze how that art history influences modern imagery of unicorns, how what the represent has changed.

I always assumed hornless ponies just got chewed on. If you've got one, I hear Epoxy Sculpt is a great way to patch up all kinds of toys. You can also make a simple mold using a pony of the same shape as the damaged one and make the poor critter a new horn! See the link to the chewed on Rapunzel here: http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,375746.msg1504005.html#msg1504005

Anyway, hope you guys are all living your best lives, loving unicorns and reading Harry Potter. The coven meets at 9PM sharp first thursdays of the month, and I'm bringing cupcakes! I'll see you all there! Ha ha, just kidding.  :biggrin:

Before this turns into a religion is bad discussion, this isn't about religion but some people expressing their superstitions and fear and using religion as an excuse. A lot of people on this forum have faith, and faith is not always or even often bad.

I wonder if this is the reason behind the fact it doesn't happen in the UK.

This is the only custom I have made where I have removed the horn from a unicorn :)

Wow!!  The wings look so natural!  Are they from a donor pony or did you sculpt or mold them somehow?

So cool pinkkittywinks!  And I like the symbol as I am a veterinary technician.  I love forelocks though, so I wonder how she would look with one.

Taffeta, one of my dearest friends (who also collects MLP) was born in Scotland but moved to Australia as a child. She always says it's very strange that Australians eat our national animal, the kangaroo. Every time she says it, I follow it up with "well I suspect the Scots ate all of their national animal, the unicorn, hence why there are none left!"

The lady who commissioned her was a vet tech as well ^.^

Suspiciously sparkly haggis perhaps...

I recall the myth that Brazil never made unicorn's for superstitious reasons, however that myth was dispelled as pure fiction by Brazilian collectors.


I'm Brazilian, and Brazil in the 80's was all about mysticism! We were coming out of a military dictatorship, so everything was appreciated! The reason we didn't have unicorns is that Estrela (the brand that produced them) didn't have the mold to make them... Same with the BBE babies.

Oh my goodness!  Pinkkittywinks this is so gorgeous!  I'm involved in cat rescue, so this really resonates with me.  You've done a wonderful job with her  :)
