Title: Monochrome swap brag thread!
Post by: SunPony on September 18, 2020, 11:31:30 PM
I lucked out and got my pony today, so I'll go ahead and start this thread for everyone.

My pony-creator was Gemini_pony, and I looooove what she came up with for me:

Gemini, thank you so much!  I LOVE her! 
She is so gorgeous and ornate and detailed.  I don't know if people can tell in the pic, but the little circles on her are TINY LEMON SLICES and its SO CUTE.  This photo doesn't do her justice but its starting to get dark here so the lighting isn't super.  Hopefully Gemini will post a thread with some better pics (let me know if you need any and I can take some when it is sunnier). I love her cute little bows, and the frosting/icing, and sprinkles, and the perfectly hand-painted base.  Gemini, how did you do the frosting?  It looks so good.  So, I totally love my pony in case you can't tell  :lol:  She looks good enough to eat! 

And I got other goodies too!  Cute ocean stickers, a postcard, and candies :)

I immediately started in on the candy.  Ah, it was a distraction so I would eat the real candy instead of the pony, right??   :lol:

I actually use the 3D fabric paint for the icing. I'm so glad you like her

I had so much fun making her :lovey:

Although I generally prefer the "older style" G4 ponies, I love these movie style ponies for customs - they are so expressive! And Rarity's pose was perfect for holding an umbrella. You may need to use some force to push it in place but it can be done!

Oooo, nice pony!  Another sweets-themed one, excellent  :biggrin: The little notepads are cute, too!

I actually got her to hold it after I took pictures. I was too excited at the time.

Holy cow what an intricate custom! Lovin the seaside goodies and lemony treats that went with her. And that base! Wowee!

Makes you wanna sit on the beach and sip a lemonade slush huh?

I received my amazing box from SunPony today! :lovey:

(I hope the image is visible? The folder is set to private so please let me know if there are any issues in displaying the photo!)

The whole box captures my tastes so well, from the beautiful custom to the lovely extras - see for example the stunning Gusty ATC! There's a beautiful vintage candleholder and some cute stickers. The pony him(?)self is absolutely gorgeous - I love the antlers and the muted green colours are so beautiful (it may just be my monitor but I think they appear a little brighter in the photo, my lighting was pretty bad).

Thank you again, SunPony! :hug:

Yay, I'm so glad your box made it safely across the ocean!  I enjoyed making your pony quite a bit, so I'm really happy you like her/him.  It was my first time making antlers which was fun...they turned out well enough I think, if a bit large   :lol:

Regarding the extras, I saw somewhere that you liked owls so I went wild   :silly:

What a cute custom. I like the little deer on the leg too.

Oh these are so cool! The lemon gal successfully makes me want lemon squares now... also the glitter/sparkle bits are almost a bit like sugar! The green pony with the antlers is really cool with the antlers, I'm inspired to make a foresty pony someday that can hang around some plants <3

Wonderful ponies y'all!  :biggrin:

These are great!!! Love seeing the end results! Not usually a fan of yellow but Gemini_Pony's custom has to be my favourite, she looks amazing! Awesome work everyone :)

All 5 are amazing! The monochrome swap is one of my favorites in terms of concept, and the results never fail to deliver.

One more, right?  :)
