MLP : DJ Pon-3's Dance Party by emilySculpts MLP : DJ Pon-3's Dance Party by emilySculpts
This piece is SOLD!

OMG it’s done, woo hoo!!! I am an ex-raver and this piece just makes me squee inside! This was a collaboration between myself and my husband.

DJ Pon-3 is at home behind the turntables, spinning some awesome tunes for all her pony pals. Aside from the light rig, every detail has been sculpted from scratch. The entirety of the piece has been hand painted with acrylic paints. The posters on the sides of the speakers were created in photoshop, printed, laminated and adhered to the piece.

This special sculpture set is fully interactive. The speakers, turntables, and character are all separate so they can be arranged however you like. Look closely at the turntables and you will see that the records can be spun and the stylus arms can be swiveled. DJ Pon-3’s hoof lines up with the records so you can make her “scratch”.

And then of course there are the lights! 6 super bright LEDs have been fashioned to resemble club lighting. A sound sensor picks up music in the vicinity and flashes the lights to the song. Be sure to check out the video below see this awesome effect in action. (Lights are powered by an included AC Adapter). All of the lights and electronics were done by my husband, Joe Coleman.
