I had some leftover fabric from 'Sparsity', so I decided to make a 'Cutie Bell' too! These two are cut from the same cloth (har har)! Her mane and tail are fleece, her body is minky. She's 9.5 inches tall, so she's a little tall to be in proportion with my Rarity, but I think they look sweet together nonetheless. She'll be up for sale as soon as I figure out shipping! What do you people think?
Hiya Fireflytwinkietoes!! I'm the guy who won Cutie Bell, or as I call her Sweetieplush, from you wayyyy back long ago. Finally joined up on Dev.art, cause I have been wanting to say thanks to all the great artists who I have art on my walls, or in this case, awesome plushness!! Yeah, so Sweetieplush has traveled around since arriving in my home early May 2012 (great packing too!!). She graced the hallowed halls and survived the fire of Bronycon summer of 2012, Canterlot Gardens, Bronycon 2013 and even FanExpo in Toronto. I'm constantly getting rave reviews of "Where did you get that plush!!" And, hope it's not causing you to much stress, I"m forever plugging; "She's from fireflytwinkletoes on deviant art!" hehe Just outstanding craftsmanship, I always try to pose her on a chair for a 'taking in a panel shot' which ever con I am at. At Bronycon 2013, she even went to both concerts, bopping in time to the wubs XD especially during Ultimate Sweetie Belle -_o. Anyways, thanks again, I'm so incredibly honoured to have a plush from you, your work is just incredibly awesome to see.
Haha awesome work. She's so cute. (and I know who bought it, hehe)
Ah, beautiful as always. I really love her cute little horn sticking out.
Thank you! She's up for sale on eBay now, if you're interested or know someone who is
I love sweetie belle! This is so cute!
HHHNNNNNGGGHHHHH!!! I really like sweetie belle's hair ~!!
Ahaha!I'm glad! I wish I'd made it out of minky rather than fleece, but I didn't have any on hand... Maybe I'll redo her entirely in minky...
minky? what kind of material is that? i saw fleece and they're good to the touch without being too fuzzy
It's the material that most people making custom plush use, because most people really like it. It gives a really smooth finish, and is ridiculously soft. Rarity is made entirely out of minky. If you look up most other professional-looking mlp plush, they're also made of minky. Not only does it look better than fleece, it has several advantages over fleece in how it is to work with. It's more expensive, though.
I see, if its to make it better though i guess it will be worth it, how does minky feel? like furry?
It feels like warm satin - it doesn't actually feel furry, it feels very smooth. It's like the fine fur of a baby kitten. It's quite the lovely fabric to work with, except lint and fluff get everywhere when you cut it
ADORABLE! And nicely sized too.
Wow! She's so adorable!
She looks adorable!
So soft and fluffy~
