Oof... my FIRST ever custom... if it can be called that... was a bbe bait... I "sculpted" Pegasus style wings and a terrible horn for it out of Greenstuff... which shouldn't stick properly... painted over the whole mess with white paint... and did symbols out of ?I think? Gel pen...

I still have the monstrosity... buried in the back of my "shame shelf" of customs I could do better and the general B Team of my collection. One of these days (when I get the customs bug again, I can feel it maybe stirring... so that's a good sign ill jump back in the game in the near future) I'll do a proper remake of poor Princess Frozen Dreams...

Or not. XD

She's *technically* my first ever custom but I consider baby Fizzy my first, and F.D. more of a misguided protocustom.

Was about to suggest the artist loft stuff, also have something by Martha Stewart somewhere on my shelves that's similar.

Anyone ever dabble with "Spectraflare" in customs before? Guess it's a powder pigment they put in car paint to give it a holographic rainbow sheen. Have some... somewhere... But been too chicken to play with it. Lol

Customs / Shinx Evolution for Dashesndots (Videogame swap)

ok, so for starters, my partner had some awesome choices on her list, among which was a GINORMOUS list of pokemon. i was in the mood to make something a little simpler so i could just have a nice quick swap project so pokemon it was! i settled on Luxray, cuz... awesomeness... and i knew early on i was prolly gonna make a second custom instead of adding extras, cause thats how i roll...

but then i got to thinking... the extra would prolly be Shinx, cause adorbs... but then... theyd have two of the three forms... so... why not...

make all 3? who needs fast easy swaps anyways? =3

luckily they went insanely fast, which was a pleasant change of pace for me. i typically take forever to get in the mood to CREATE, so its usually a last minute rush with no sleep and much stress. blah blah blah enough words, on to pics! (which i actually dont have too many of this time around. oops. one downside to working fast is i kinda space on proper photoshooting, so feel free to add more pics later on dash!)

they all had their ears lobbed off and resculpted, tails wired, rooted, and sculpted on, and their various fluffybits sculpted on, the rest was all paintwork =]

i tried to save time and asked Mr Elu to prime them for me when i was at work so i could start painting as soon as i got home... little did i know his lack of artistic ability reached to simple priming too. lol ended up taking up 3 more days of sanding, acetoning away drips and puddles, repriming, more sanding, initial paintwork just to find more "leprocy", acetoning, and careful priming and more sanding before i was able to live with the remaining bumps in the paintwork. he kept saying 'i told you so' but im sure with more practice, SUPERVISED practice, he'll be able to handle at least priming for me haha!

I remember a while ago someone had listed the specifics you need for it... god it was ages ago tho. I remember for sure you need "worsted weight". Has something to do with the fiber length i think.

Hey you never learn anything new without experimenting. =] but like others have said just be suuuper careful with sharpies. I'd worry about her gradually staining her hair, and be careful not to leave her touching other ponies on your shelf in case it does leak thru the sealant. Don't want her staining her neighbors.

She'd be a great Dancing Butterflies or Masquerade! =]

or Lofty, yellow hair = even if it does bleed into the hair it wont show as much. The world can always use more Loftys. =P
