Firefly - Attempt 1 by altearithe Firefly - Attempt 1 by altearithe
F.A.Q.s: [link]
Commissions details: [link]
Waitlisting details: [link]



And here is Firefly in the new chibi pony/filly form. :D

Firefly is the star of "Rescue at Midnight Castle", the first movie of the original My Little Pony as well as its pilot. :3
In other words, she's part of the G1 ponies. X3


I used to watch it near constantly as a little girl (to the point that my mom actually recognized Firefly here. XDD), so Firefly has a soft spot in my heart. ;w; <3
(I actually bought the special version that came with the re-release of the movie since I'm recollecting the ponies that I had as a girl: [link] )



Anyway, she actually ended up smaller than she should have due to the thinning of the yarn, so I'm considering this "successful attempt #1".
I'm going to try making her again with the new pink yarn I just got. Hopefully it will make a difference. X3


I'll finalize the full/adult pony form once I get a bit of time and decide who to make first. XD

In the meantime, I'll be working on commissions, pokemon, and other side projects. :3

I hope you guys enjoy~



~Altearithe

She is around 3cm tall. :3 That's around 1.5 inches for we Americans. XP






Firefly is (was? the whole rainbow dash thing) the property of Hasbro.
This is fanmade for my own personal collection.

'Rescue at Midnight Castle' had been a favorite of mine, as well! (and it's good to know that I'm not alone in trying to relocate the older ponies....I just wish I could remember what I had done with my own collection.... ^ ^;;;; )

Oh my god oh my god.

I LOVE the original!
As a kid, I'd borrow my neighbor's my little pony VCR tape and watch it over and over!

The original is the best.
I miss it.

I think I still have the tape, but I don't know if it's in the old den or if it's somewhere upstairs in my parents' room. >.<
It was such an awesome time though. ;w;

I miss it too. :(

I thought so too, but it turns out the body ended up too small. XD I was just comparing it again to the original model I have on my desk (lost track of it while cleaning) and the body is around half a centimeter too small to support the head properly. >.<

Yeah, sometimes it's hard to get them to balance well. My 5 inch beanie/mini-plushies tended to tip over forward, and I solved it by adding a few beanie pellets in the back.

Definitely, so I use sneaky sewing techniques I learned from sewing cosplay outfits to make then work instead of pellets. XD
Would love to use pellets someday

They're really not that expensive, I got the bag I'm using for about $8 and it's 2 pounds. I've started making really small sleeping beanies (4 inches.long) and it only takes about 5 scoops to stuff their little bodies. I use one of those little.metal scoops they sell.for working with seed beads, it really helps to keep them from.getting all over.

That's crazy how small she is! I love her :) how much would you charge for a pony of her size?
Reply
:iconaltearithe:
altearithe Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
:giggle: Yeah, I can't believe she ended up smaller than I intended.

Well, I don't usually charge by size, but by time (unless it's bigger than a certain size), and if I remember correctly it took me about 2 to 3 hours to make her (minus breaks so I don't get carpul tunnel syndrome), so it would be $40-60 at my wage of $20 an hour. ^^
