My little pony Día de los Muertos. This was a project for Halloween 2009 which couldn't be realised until now due to my block. Her facial design is inspired by Sugar Skulls which are part of the celebration on Day of the Dead. Hope you enjoy her.
Introducing the Vampire Lestat (part of the halloween collection). This pony was based on the character Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice's fantastic vampire chronicles ([link]).
Lestat has been given sculptured clothing which has been carefully painted to resemble an outfit worn by the character in the film Interview with a Vampire. His jacket has been painted to look like crushed velvet with gold details. His waistcoat has been given tiny gold buttons. I gave Lestat rich gold blond hair like in the movie, however I stuck to the eye colour given to Lestat by Anne Rice and painted them grey, rather than the blue.
Peacock inspirem my little pony custom made for in the peacock swap at the Arena.
She started as a Wysteria II I found on a flea market. I sculpted wings that are removable (as I planned a corset as well, but thought it would be too much on her) and a mask and tail feathers, painted her in a very dark metallic indigo blue and used blue and pink of a colour-family called flip-flop in Germany. It's mailny used for cars and change colour depending on what angle you look at it. It's a stunning effect and was really worth the money. Her eyes are bright green and golden and she's sealed with Mod Podge Matte and all the shiny parts and her eyes are glossy sealed. The three feathers that hang from her mask are attached with very thin braided After Midnight ponyhair. (What took forever and was done not by me, but by my friend who loves to help and play with ponys. Thank you hon.)
Hair colours are dollyhair Hematite, Ultraviolet, Poison Ivy, Key Lime, Golden Goddess, Bobby Blue, After Midnight, and I think Pacific Ocean.
