Firefly

By thurinus
Rainbow Dash's Gen 1 predecessor - Firefly!

I recently decided to start making ponies for others, and began with one of the first requests I got from a colleague and friend almost half a year ago. Not sure how long I can keep this up, though...

Fun fact: This was the first time I remember ever having to tie a bow :P

Thanks to :iconspacevoyager: and :iconmlpt-fan: for Minky colour suggestions!

Hello.  You're probably not expecting this, but I was wondering something.
About 2 years ago I purchased a Firefly plushie secondhand.  It looks extremely similar to this one (and still in stellar condition!) and I was wondering if it is yours?  I've been looking all over to find who made this plushie.

Definitely not mine, but I want to say the style looks quite familiar. Are you able to show a fully-framed picture?

If Disney owned Ponies, this is exactly what those plushies would look like at the Disney Store! :3

Oof, this is so awesome ^^ Dash Academy totally made this character for me. I wish I could buy one of these :V They certainly won't make an official one. Anyway, this is fantastic :3 Did your friend get hype?

May I ask what is the color of her body? Someone commission one from me and I think is the same of pinkie Pie.. but I like to ask first ^^
thurinus's avatar
Yup! I used Bubblegum Pink for her body as I do with Pinkie Pie, and Azure for her hair pieces.

She is soooooo cute~! I have been wanting to make a Firefly lately!

A question, I've seen so many plush makers put the detail lines in the  mane and tails, how did you do yours? :3

Thanks :) I believe most of us just use satin/zigzag stitches on our machines. Those with machines capable of larger embroidery areas may delegate it entirely to an embroidery file and machine.

I figured as much, thanks! :)

She is adorable!
I like that, in the front view, her eyes are actually focussed rather than staring off blankly, yet you haven't distorted the side views.
Most splendiferous!
thurinus's avatar
Thanks :) Yeah I try my best to make the eyes look right from both the front and side, even if it means compromising the profile fidelity to the show.
