Princess Cadence Plushie ^^

*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


*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!  ^^
