Lifesize Rainbow Dash Custom Plush

For: :iconnazegoreng: 

PROCESS
:bulletyellow: Dashie was made from baby blue, cherry red, orange, sunshine, dark lime, azure and purple minky. 

Her eyes and cutiemark were fully machine appliquéd (using my sewing machine, not my embroidery machine). They incorporate a variety of cottons and white satin. Her eyes are also airbrushed with a gradient. 

Her pattern was designed by me.
She is 42 inches to the top of her hair. She has 3d hooves and 3d sculpted ears. Her entire body is fitted with an internal PVC skeleton so she can stand very well on her own. Her tail is also supported by PVC and it supports it's own weight. Her hooves have poly pellets to further balance her. Her wings are wired to keep their position and shape. She has a zipper on her back and tail that were to help with the stuffing process. All of her legs, tail, side mane and most of her body are lined with heavy quilt batting to act as an internal skin, smoothing her out greatly and reducing wrinkling. She is stuffed with polyfill stuffing and foam. 

Her element of harmony is removable via magnets and is made from spandex covered foam. I used this tutorial:

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. 


COMMENTS
I've wanted to make a lifesize pony for over a year now, but I didn't want to make one till I was absolutely 100% confident in my pattern. Making something this large and expensive wasn't something I wanted to take lightly. I've spent several months researching, preparing and saving for her materials. It wasn't an easy choice, but I ended up going with Dashie, who is IMO the best looking plush out of the mane 6 and a favourite of mine. 


PLEASE zoom in to check out her details

A big thanks to the following people: 

:iconraycam01: for being amazingly supportive, helping me with the skeleton construction and photography (when I was in shot). 
:iconfireflytwinkletoes: for helping me with my applique
:iconbuttercupbabyppg: for general tips and advice
:icondoublebackstitcharts:  for general tips and advising me on 3d hooves

Woah... That must have taken a lot of cloth. It's really impressive. She looks like she jumped straight out of the TV screen.
NazFX's avatar
Thankyou!! I think her materials cost around $900. A whole lot of fabric :O 
MarceltheVirginian's avatar
Oof. I guessed she was pricey, but not $900 pricey. The result is flawless though (I'm picky too). I just read the description on the picture. You have smart construction methods. I was wondering how she had no wrinkles or sagging head. Nice work!

Thanks! A tonne of planning goes into the giant ones. It's more like building a structure than making a plush
