The story behind why this girl got made is kind of long. Well over a year ago, I made my first lifesize pony, the Giant and Huggable Trixie (seen here fav.me/d5n3lva
) for wilshirewolf
. Well, a long time passed (about well over a year), and time does things to lovely stuffed ponies, my old techniques were a little less sound than they are now, and Wilshire loved Trixie a lot, so she ended up needing a little bit of fixing up. Popped seams repaired, her coat and mane washed, stuffing refluffed, etc. All stuff I offer to do after a year or so on any of my girls. Well, I had this idea to try and make Trixie better than before. I pitched revising her to Wilshire, and he gave me the go-ahead. So the little repair and revitalize job turned into a body and mane overhaul. And then I discovered the harsh reality that I've just changed too much since I made that first lifesize. The old pieces weren't compatible in the least with my new pattern. So I did what anyone would do in my situation. Instead of just seaming up the old Trixie, I pitched building a new body to Wilshire. And the crazy (but lovable) bloke gave me the go-ahead again. SO. What you see here is the old stuffing and old tail of the first Trixie in and on a brand new body. I'll probably post a "Plush It Again Meme" pic or something with side-by-sides of them, but it was quite a project, but both myself and Wilshirewolf are very happy with how this pony turned out.
Anyway, sentimentality and stuff aside, what's new from my LAST life-size? Well, she's bigger ;D I made her body a bit thicker, her belly a little more chubby, her chest wider and more defined- and I've got so say that I'm
very happy with how my life-size pattern looks. Something I can complain about: She's still darn heavy, and ponies this big really don't like to stand or pose, so now more than ever I'd love to look into a fully articulated armature/endoskeleton for my lifesize ponies. Something to make them move naturally, and stand on their own four hooves. But that's just my crazy little side-project.
As always I welcome questions, constructive critique, and friendly advice in the comments, prices are not
discussed in comments only by note, and I'm still regretfully not open for commission. But I will be working towards that some time! So keep an eye out, if not just to see my next pony (life-size Applejack, anypony?) then to find out when I am
open for commission.
Where else can you find me?
