It's Liquid Pride! by fireflytwinkletoes It's Liquid Pride! by fireflytwinkletoes
Here, have ALL THE PICTURES of Shining Armor being shiningly armored! I am so ridiculously in love with this plush that I had to post all around views.

Since my last Shining Armor, I've made his chest deeper, his head more angular, his legs and butt more shapely and all around updated pretty much everything about it!

This plush is a commission for :icontory-kasper: and is not for sale. He is 15.5" tall, and made of Snow White, Cobalt, Aqua, and Royal Blue minky. His eyes and cutie marks are appliqued. His armor is Yellow and Sunshine minky with purple satin lined with cotton, and snaps on under his belly and behind the crest on his chest.

I don't want to use the P word (because I have left it in like three of your works now like a uber creepy obsessed person), but I have to - PERFECTION!

That stance. That (LIQUID!) pride. Everything cut out just so...the applique, once again, working for you in a way that is flattering. And I was stunned to learn the armor is minky! At least from what I have tried to learn about armor for ponies, I had always seen velour, which made sense as minky seemed a little harder to maneuver about with the intricate details of the armors. And yet again I was wrong - and I am loving being wrong if it looks this beautiful! Mixing the yellow/sunshine minky details with the purple satin just looks divine. The armor could not look more stunning, could not be more perfect for this Shining Armor. Yet again - he was put into incredibly capable hands knowing exactly where to tweak and how to make him 20% more flabbergasting awesome. And I have to mention that I love your descriptions for your humor - it really adds to the whole experience seeing how in love you are with what you do!

So much love. So much staring at the angles and just being blown away by how precise your work is. Phenomenal job!

Haha, far be it from me to discourage you from complimenting my work :D  I do like making Shining Armor - his personality seems to come out fairly easily in the plush. I was quite happy with the armor on this one - it was nice that I'd learned a lot from making the armor once before.

Thanks, as always, for the detailed comments - I really appreciate it :3

Wow, that armor is made out of minky?  I was terrified to use minky because I thought it would look shaggy and unkempt and un-armor-like, but yours looks amazing!  I especially like the bangs too.  Great job!

All the yellow is minky - the purple is satin :)

Shining Armor is best speaking male pony.  And that'd be true even if there were more likable males than just Soarin. :iconsoarinplz:

But again, fantastic work!  I'm serious, one day I'll have the money to commission you for something.  You've proven time and time again you're at the top of the list when it comes to making plushies.
