Backstory: Blossom is a pony who runs a popular perfume and cosmetics shop.  When she's not touring Equestria for rare scents and fragrances for her perfumes, she enjoys giving ponies who visit her shop a makeover and is always there to give a pony a boost in confidence.  Blossom has the ability to spot the beauty in each and every pony and sees it as her mission to bring out everypony's best side.

Wow!  I can't believe I managed to finish her before the New Year ;) especially since I plush on an extremely tight schedule (I'm lucky to get 1-2 hours of sewing per night after both kids are in bed).  I started plushing her about a month ago (it honestly feels a lot longer than that ^^").

This is my OC Blossom Breeze in plush form :D  Her original design, backstory and concept art are by :iconparfywarfy: as part of my "Design-An-OC-For-Me" contest.

There are 2 shades of coral in her hair!  I'm having a lot of trouble capturing it properly on camera... it's subtle, but definitely there!!!!  You can appreciate it best in the rightmost photo ^^".

Blossom was heaps fun to make!  She inspired me to experiment with numerous new techniques:

1) Revised ears to make them more 3D - covered in more detail here:

New ears for my ponies!  :D by moggymawee 

2) Minky dyeing!  I dyed minky for the first time :) And it was a lot of fun!  I captured a video of my experience:

3) Minky flowers!  I'm so happy I've figured out a way to make multiple tiny flowers out of minky without ending up in exhaustion (and eventual insanity!).  I really wanted to use minky instead of other materials such as felt or fleece, because minky creates that beautiful fluffy feel & soft look.

I've chosen to plush Blossom's luscious pink locks to look flowy and light - as if they're floating in the breeze (her name is Blossom Breeze after all ;) and her specialty is scents and fragrances).

I spent an entire week airbrushing her ^^" - honestly, gradients are a lot harder than they look (especially if you're working with minky!  all those furs blowing in different directions >w<).  I also airbrushed her horn & blush ;)

Also, I've filmed the entire process of assemblying/handsewing her hair (it took ages x3) so I'll be releasing a time-lapse video soon-ish?  This video will be available to everyone (ie: not exclusive to my patrons).  There will be a patron-only video tutorial coming soon too!  ;)

***Sewing Blossom Breeeze's hair (time-lapse video): youtu.be/E6wKQndxsZs

Specifics:
*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics, minky baby fabric
*Minky colours: coral, darker coral shade dyed by me, lemon, white
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, craft foam, poly pellets in hooves, quilt batting, stretch satin
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, gutermann rayon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 16" tall, 19" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front left hoof
*Extra features: airbrushing on legs/horn/blush, Swarovski crystals in eyes, magnets in collar (fully removable)

For my next project, I was planning on plushing another OC of mine - Vanilla Pearl.  She's a newly acquired OC I adopted not too long ago... but I think I should maybe focus on opening a commission slot for those who have been waiting to get a pony from me?????  I'm probably only going to open one slot though - it can get really stressful with multiple commissions. 

So if you're interested, please message me now!  Please read my commission info first and be aware of the sort of prices I charge before messaging me.

Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas ;)
