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.
As always, to see all the pictures of this pony, to see the detail in the corset and boots and such, go to my website here: [link] She is listed under "corseted ponies". This pony was made from a pink G3 My Little Pony toy. The symbol was removed with laquer thinner, eyes repainted with acrylics and sealed and the corset, boots and striped stockings were sculpted from Apoxie Clay, painted and sealed. The hair was rerooted with katsilk hair in Evergreen and Noir. The hat is removable and is completely handmade out of black cotton fabric (kind felt-like feel) and green cotton fabric. There are little holes in the hat for the ears to poke out of The broom is also handmade out of Apoxie Clay over wire and tinfoil (wire and foil used to bulk out and stabalize the Apoxie Clay.)
This was my first baby G3 pegasus pony. She was made from a lavender/pink G3 baby pony rehaired with Katsilk hair in Azure blue and (I believe) Sky Blue. The wings were made from Apoxie Sculpt over wire. The wings and eyes were painted in acrylics and sealed. The tiara is made from Swarovski crystals and beading wire.
This pony was actually stolen after winning 1st place in the 2005 My Little Pony convention's custom contest. I never saw it, my ribbons, or prize after the convention. About a month ago I did receive replacement ribbons, a plaque and a lovely replacement prize from the convention coordinators and I thank them again Now on to the pony. She was made in the style of the G1 Merry Go Round My Little Ponies, in that she has a carousel saddle and little sculpted bits on either side of her neck. This one was done a while back so I hadn't gotten into the habit of repainting eyes yet, but they matched so it wasn't a problem. The pony was a G3 Moondancer that I rerooted with Katsilk hair in Noir and Sapphire Blue. The saddle, sculpted out of Apoxie Sculpt, has a scene of outer space depicted on it, with saturn and a few of it's moons on the display side and Earth with the moon on the other. Shooting stars frame the entire saddle and the neck pieces.
I love the star wars movies and love Yoda as well.
Thought he would make the most awesome pony custom and I was right.
He came out better than I expected though. At first I wasn't sure how well Yoda would transfer into a pony but I always love challenges and he was so much fun to make.
He also won 3rd place at the custom contest for the Cincy Ohio Pony Meet.
This was a pony I was making for Halloween but did not finish. Used a book with drawings of animal skeletons as a reference but simplified a lot. The design is on both sides. I will hopefully put the finishing touches on her before next Halloween. Was going to re-root her with black hair but decided against it. Bait was a blue 3G pony with pink hair, I think she had a cloud symbol.
