Twilight as starswirl the bearded by MagnaStorm Twilight as starswirl the bearded by MagnaStorm
I was a little hesitant about posting this tonight since I already have a massive amount of messages from that DD on Kyogre, but I know if I don't post it now it'll slip my mind later. So I'm sorry in advance if I take forever to reply to messages! ;A;

Twilight, made with my new pattern, wearing her Starswirl the bearded costume. As you can see, her costume is also fully removable! I decided to go with pompoms for the bells on her outfit, since real bells would have been too heavy for her hat. Speaking of which, I -think- I've figured out how to make hats with this one. Though I'm still not too keen on making plush hats. xP A correctly constructed one takes as longs as a small plush to build @_@

Twilight herself is made out of minky, and her outfit is made out of fleece so she's still cuddly while wearing it. :) The rim of her hat has a wire going around its egde to make it posable. She's 15 inches tall on her own and 25 inches with her massive hat.

this plush was a commission, not for sale

omg this is great! btw have u been getting flak for ur plushies like :iconwhitedove-creations:? ive yet to get any real info on whats going on but apparently layers are involved =/
You'd think if it was really a problem making these plushies, Lauren Faust wouldnt have bought one from her.

I've just now learned about her problems with Hasbro.
While what's happening to her could very well happen to any pony plush maker at the moment, I chose to not let it worry me and only think about it if it actually happens to me. And if it does, then I have very simple solutions in place for this type of situations already.
And Lauren Faust bought a plush from her as just another person wanting a pony plush, not representing Hasbro. So what she endorses can be very different from what the company does. Sadly that's just how things go >:

Well I do hope its resolved soon. And I also hope this isn't the front of a large anti-pony-plushie campaign from Hasbro. Id be one upset brony.

It would be different if Hasbro would release a line of plush toys but so far they just have the giant awkward looking Twilight Sparkle. Which I, as a HUGE Twilight Sparkle fan would NEVER want. But since they haven't (yet?) I don't really see why its a problem. Aside from the licensed characters of course. But then I could get into the whole "custom ponies" bit but I don't know much on the subject. It seems to me like they'd be more upset with people just modifying the little plastic toys and selling those at a premium than people making toys completely from scratch. But again, I don't know much of that stuff ^^;

Hopefully it never comes to that though, and I hope they don't come after you too. Cuz then I will be sad :( And I no like to be sad. :iconsadfaceplz:

Its none of that with Hasbro. Someone reported the copyright issues to Hasbro and per US law they have to defend their IP. If they don't then that will warrant the IP null and they will lose ownership. Again, this is all per US copyright laws.

Apparently, someone reported her to Hasbro, and she was asked to take down her commission prices. That's what I dug up in the last 10 minutes at least.

yeah, I've been doing some digging about it too. I think things could have been much worst from the snippets of conversations I've found; only being asked to take down commission prices is nothing compared to what Hasbro could do. It's still very unfortunate though, and I hope no one else will be reported.

It really does seem like someone singled her out. I'm not sure why though.

spicyoryhara Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
Not sure if this has anything to do with the singling out but she seems to be getting a lot of grief from ponychan. Enough to cause her to be really upset and be even sadder about all this. Yeah, ponychan of all places. Wait, no, this doesn't surprise me in the least with ponychan. At all. They were always seen to me as being pompous and jerk-offs. No offense to someone that regulars there but I really don't care. I don't think anyone has the right to harass someone over their choice of hobby or business.

I'm still trying to find the entry in question, but supposedly, some guy posted his estimation of her sales and is the same person who reported her to Hasbro.

It would definitely be in *WhiteDove-Creations's best interests to take a break from the internet for awhile and avoid ponychan altogether. That also includes ignoring the posts they occasionally make on her dA page. Those type of people usually back off when they see they aren't going to get a reaction.

If the problem persists on her page, she can report them for harassment.

Ah, it all falls into place. How someone would develop a vendetta against someone for something so mundane, something that truly has no barring on their lives.

I kind of want to go to Ponychan to see what is going on but then again I don't want to be sucked into reading hurtful and hate driven threads about this. I really don't care for them.

Wow, that's amazing - love the hat. It was about time someone did this...
Two quick questions: how does the beard attach to the plushie - also, does the hat just sit on her head or is it somehow strapped on?

MagnaStorm Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
ahah yeah, I'm surprised I haven't seen any Twilights in this costume before! It's such a fun one!

The beard is actually attached to the hat. It's sewn to it on one side and has velcro on the other. The hat itself is a snug fit on her head, so it holds on its own, though the beard acts as a strap :)

I know, right? She looks great!
That's pretty clever - well done on that, I couldn't pick it out from the photos.
She looks like she stepped straight out of the show - you seem to have nailed the colours with her, and the style's damn perfect.
More questions (argh, sorry to annoy!): Is Twi herself posable - and how does she stand up?

MagnaStorm Featured By Owner May 29, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
she's not very posable, though her legs can be moved around to a certain degree. She has very large hooves which provide her enough balance to stand :)
