So I love Hasbro & Lauren Faust's 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic' - and I also love leathercrafting! I decided to 'design' my own leathercraft pony mascot. (Don't think about it too much, tho, or it will creep you out ^^)

The drawing in the corner wasn't done by me; I used a template based on HUB's "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Adventures in Ponyville" online game. I used Photoshop to combine different elements, choose my own colors, and draw the 'cutie mark.'

Leathercraft Pony is made from suede, so she has a nice cuddly texture. She is sewn together with a baseball stitch except for her feet, which use a more traditional leathercraft stitch. (I can't sew regular fabric to save my life)

Her mane/tail is wool felting yarn, aka 'pencil yarn' which I needle-felted. This was my very first attempt at needle-felting, but I think it turned out pretty decent. Still, I might use raw wool roving and revisit her mane sometime in the future.

Her eyes & her cutie mark were done with a mixture of Sharpie oil-based Paint Pens & regular Bic markers. The cutie mark consists of an awl and a round knife - icons of traditional leathercrafting.

I was inspired to create this butterfly after watching the great movie, "The Fall." This shape reminds me both of the butterfly reef where our heroes are trapped and the helmets worn by the x-ray technician/bad guys.

This is a leather mask inspired by a Les Paul, Ray's trusty guitar.

This is a leather mask that has been hand crafted and shaped out of one piece of leather. I used metallic acrylic paint and freehanded the guitar details.

I know Ray has a lot of guitars, but I just love this one. I love the colors and how it fades into such a dark black, but just on the edges. This one is most like the actual guitar with pickups, knobs, pick guard… everything! It's kinda special.

All my masks are hand shaped out of 8 oz vegetable tanned leather and painted with acrylics. There is an elastic cord that easily ties off for quick adjustments. Custom masks available. Feel free to look through my flickr gallery for a feel of some of my previous designs. - www.flickr.com/photos/maskedzone/

Enjoy!

Just finished another custom-colored mask. A kitsune this time, in red and black. I think a reverse of these colors would look pretty amazing too...it'd make a neat pair of masks.

No extra charge for custom colors at my shop, ever. :-)
