Custom MLP - Littlepip

This is my first customized My Little Pony toy. It's Littlepip from the fan fiction Fallout: Equestria [link] by Kkat.

I used a Fashion Style Rarity as the base and replaced the hair with hair from

Please let me know what you think, it's my first project and I could always use some tips.

Also, I made a "making of" [link] video for it, mostly for my own amusement :)

She does when Homage is around :)

no she does not smile. She just hides her face in her hoofs. xD

Zebra Rifle

My mind has been blown.

This is pretty good, but the hair seems a little too long and tidy for her. She had a shorter haircut if I recall, one that was a bit more unruly.

Other then having a Pipbuck and being small, she's never described in the story. I used existing fanart for inspiration but decided to go with my own feel for the character rather then copy an existing fanart. I do agree the hair is too neat here, but I consider this more of her "glammer shot" rather then a day in the life. Also, the longer hair looks cuter :)

dA needs an edit button :(

The paint job is gorgeous! It looks so smooth and you kept her eyes so clean!
codepony's avatar
That's because I didn't paint her, I used a dying process to dye her to the needed color. Makes for a much smoother body.
Scaramouche-Fandango's avatar
I've never seen that done before! She really looks lovely.

Thank you. I was looking online for ways to paint ponies and came across some dying tutorials. It's a lot harder, but it ends up much smoother.

I love the bobby pins all over the floor!

BTW, your "Littlepip in pencil" was my inspiration for the Stable Barding. Yours was the only one I had seen where it actually looked like barding instead of a suit.
otherunicorn's avatar
Cool! I actually looked up the definition of barding!
codepony's avatar
Thanks, those were fun to make. I wanted to make more but they took forever LOL

I used to make coat hangers in 1/25 scale, so I can imagine!

Littlepip's Littlepip should be a brownish color it's too new and shiny and she needs scars and blood stains........or is that too much? LOL Im just messing with you, this is AWESOME!!!! I bet Steelhooves would be a challenge.

I agree about the battle wounds, but I mainly placed this early, soon after she got the zebra rifle. As for her Pipbuck, I figured since she was the Pipbuck repair person, she would maintain hers and have access to better parts :)

Steelhooves will be a nightmare, he will be last if at all. I think Homage will be next since she will be easy, Calamity will require a body repaint (because I can't find a Fluttershy fashion toy) and a facial reconstruction but it shouldn't be too hard.

She would have the best parts lol.
The Zebra might be hard depending on how well you can pant stripes. Will Calamity have a battle saddle?
