*sorry for the weird lighting, it's night time here and I tried my best to make the most out of my lightbox*

I'm so proud to share with you all my Princess Cadence plushie!  ^^  Princess Cadence is my favourite princess from the show, so it was a given for her to be the first alicorn/princess I plush.

Because Cadence has a more feminine/petite snout compared to Celestia's and Luna's, I've designed the alicorn head pattern to reflect that.  I've also decided to use the same pattern for Luna's head (who is 60% complete), because I prefer it to her "manlier" show muzzle (no offense intended :P).  I like having a good balance of show accuracy and aesthetics (my own personal aesthetics anyway x3).

All the curls in her hairs are 3D (not just top-stitched in).  Her forelock took sooooo long to get right - mainly because I really wanted her hair to look good & make sense from all angles.  That means matching and lining up all the different colours.

Her wings have been airbrushed to create that pretty purple gradient :D I'm very happy with how they've turned out!  (I <3 my airbrush so much!)  The minky is still smooth and soft to touch ^^

All her accessories are completely removable.  The crown and necklace have magnets in them.  I wanted to make the shoes separately and removable (rather than appliqued straight on) since I wanted to re-create what she'd look in real life :).  I'm super pleased with how they look on her, and I plan to do the same for Luna's shoes.

Anyway - Cadence turned out to be a lot of work, and she took waaaaaay longer than I had expected, but I reckon all the time & effort I'd spent on her was totally worth it!  ^^

Hope you guys like her as much as I do!  :D

Details:

*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics
*Minky colours: blush, fuchsia, vanilla, amethyst, lemon
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, quilt batting, craft foam and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, madeira polyneon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Others: magnets in accessories, wire in wings
*Size: Approx 21" tall, 23" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front right hoof & 1 shoe

Sooooo....  I'm going to try and finish Luna soon :) she should be a lot more straightforward compared to Cadence (hopefully T-T).  I'm keeping Cadence for myself, but I'll be selling this first Luna I make on Ebay.  I've also started plushing foalsitter Cadence as part of my trade with an awesome DA friend (and soon, I'll be plushing my "Design-An-OC-For-Me" contest prize too!  ^^ but first I need to get over the hurdle of choosing the winners T-T you guys submitted waaaaay too many awesome entries!!  :P I'm going to look at all of them tomorrow and have a long and hard think)

Thanks everyone!  It's Friday night here in NZ!  So it's weekends for me!  WOOPIE!  ^^

Sorry for the super late reply!!  Omg!! >___< Cadence is one of my favourite too!  It's been so long since I plushed her - but usually at least 60-80 hours?

that's a lot of hours for that though.

now i understand why a lot of people don't do this very much.

Really? Does it make the fabric wet or bleed out sometimes?
moggymawee's avatar
moggymaweeHobbyist Artisan Crafter
not if you use fabric compatible airbrush paint :)
