Of all the ponies I wanted to turn into plushies, Nightmare Moon was #2, right after Celestia. In fact, the fabric for NMM's mane was the very first I picked out when I set out on the path to plushiedom. I've held onto it for all this time, and was finally able to put it to use. I'm so happy I was able to finish her before Nightmare Night! :D

Nightmare Moon is made from minky, with machine embroidered eyes and cutie marks. Her mane and tail are spangled organza with a wire frame (so it glitters in the light), and her wings are made with two kinds of feathers, and are wired for posability. Her armor is made from satin, and I will be sure to never use that fabric again for accessories. Dresses are fine, but anything that touches the ground is a no-no. It snags and frays too easily; it isn't worth the headache. Her armor is fully removable, including her helmet. I am already planning tweaks for the next one I make, but I'm very pleased with how this one turned out.

Nightmare Moon stands 19 inches tall, and is 28 inches from mane tip to tail. In addition to posable wings, her hair can be flipped to either side and will hold its own shape.

MLP:FIM and Nightmare Moon belong to Hasbro & Ms. Faust; all patterns & embroidery files are my own creation, please don't ask for them. I am currently closed for commission slots, but I announce them via journal, so make sure to watch me for my latest creations & opportunities to get one for yourself!
