Rainbow Dashing by fireflytwinkletoes Rainbow Dashing by fireflytwinkletoes
A commission for :iconbekindsorewind:! I made quite a few Dashes back in the day, but hadn't made one since I made a bunch of drastic changes to my pattern, so I really wanted to make her again! The forelock design is based off of :iconnazegoreng:'s innovation (and used with her permission) - you should REALLY check out her work - she does the most amazing, inventive and show-accurate work with manes!

Do you embroider your own eyes for these?

I applique all my eyes and cutie marks. Check my FAQ for more info - there's a link to it on my front page.

This is a legitimate question, because I have no idea what actually goes into making one of these things.

Why doesn't anyone ever use actual hair (or the stuff resembling actual hair) for the mane and tail? It's always the same plushie material that's used for the rest of the pony. Is it just really difficult to use the real thing? Is it too expensive?

Also because it looks kinda silly when they do, most times.

I've never seen one that used something resembling real hair. I can't imagine it would look any "sillier" than using the same material as the body, if done properly. I mean, Hasbro uses "real" hair in their brushable ponies. Why not for plushies, too?

Because it looks kinda dumb, dude. Have you seen the build a bear plushes? That's what they do, and it just looks kinda funny. Some faux fur looks decent when done right, but more often than not like a fluffball. There are plenty of plush makers that use them, Firefly just isn't one of them; they're usually a little less popular, maybe for that exact reasoning.

I think it's also because people really want show-accurate manes. The faux hair can't really be made into those specific shapes.

Some people do use faux fur or other long-pile fabrics for the hair. I don't because I hate working with them and they make my face itch.

Thanks! Unfortunately there's no color available that perfectly matches Dash's body, but I prefer to err on the bright side rather than the pastel.
