My First G1 Plush!
« on: May 24, 2021, 05:18:41 PM »
She's got quiet the story! Back in March/April-ish, my boyfriend and I were looking for a used bookstore in our area! I found one on google not to far that we hadn't been to. I look at the photos on the page and I see a bin of plushes and there she is sitting right on top! But then I realize the photo was from years ago. I figure she's probably not there any longer but maybe they'll have other vintage toys so its worth a shot. Unfortunately the bookstore was appointment only because of COVID so we don't end up going and kinda forget about it

Fast Forward to this Saturday, my boyfriend, his sister and I are in the area and notice the door to the bookstore open. We decide to go in, and then I see a little bucket with some plushes in it. At first there was nothing but then I see purple

SHE WAS STILL THERE!!! After all this time!!!!

I styled her recently and it's a little damaged but I've seen worse. Both of her eyes are scratched and I'm thinking about trying to repair them but I don't know much about it and I don't wanna mess it up haha if you have any tips let me know!

Wow that's amazing that she was still there!  It was like she was meant to come home with you.  :lovey:    Some of my plushies also have scuffed eyes but I have never attempted to touch them up.  I know others have re-painted them so maybe someone else will have good advice.   :)

I'm glad I was able to give her a good home! I'm still not sure if I even want to attempt it because I don't want to accidently mess it up haha but I guess I'll just have to see! I love your avatar btw!

Congrats on being so lucky!!! My only G1 plushie find was a Starshine wi cropped hair. I bought her because I liked plushie pegasi & unicorns & she was a pegasus... She now has a load of friends. Her eyes were scuffed too, but a little black paint works wonders!!!
My Mascots (so far): Twisty Tail, G2 Trixiebelle, Starcatcher, Twilight Sparkle. All variants & pictures of these are appreciated. Piccies courtesy of Griffin & Blumiere

The G1 plushes must have fragile paint because I see a lot of them online with scuffed eyes! it has to be very common!

Thank you!! I bet your Starshine is lovely! I've always liked her colors ovo

That's awesome that she was still there,  those kind of finds are total wins and I could only imagine how stoked you felt when you saw her... kind of like a 'ohmygoodnessIcantbelieveitshe'sactuallyheregimmegimmemine' type of internal squee  :lol:
I love G1 softies, congrats!

Yeah exactly!!!! My boyfriend loves to poke fun at my pony reactions because I tend to get super excited and when I get super excited I get shaky (adrenaline sensitive maybe? :silly:) He couldn't believe she was still there either. I was definitely bragging the rest of the day!!

Lovely girl... And how amazing that she was still there after all that time!  Her plush is still so bright  ^.^

I've touched up nonpony plush eyes with a little black acrylic model paint.  You could tell they had been touched up if you looked really closely, but from a normal viewing distance they looked great.  Just make sure not to leave any brush strokes.
Thanks to Shimmlight for the new avatar image  :biggrin:
