Rarity by fireflytwinkletoes Rarity by fireflytwinkletoes
:iconeveryponyta: 's Rarity! I had fun making her. I forgot how complicated her eyes were, but I love her mane and am totally happy with this plush. The plump horn was requested. Boy, last week it was grey ponies, this week it's white ponies! It never rains but it pours.

Could you share how you did the horn, please?

It's just a cone of fabric hand-stitched to the plush. Then, I take a long length of thread and stitch in a spiral around the horn with loose basting stitches, pull it tight and tie it off to make the spiral.

I think the short muzzle is super cute ^^

The three-quarter view makes her muzzle look a little shorter than it actually is, but thanks! I think Fluttershy does have a bit of a snub nose compared to the others - it makes her big eyes pop out more.

How on earth do you get her mane an tail to curl that way? Can't see to figure this out, myself *derp*

There are thin flexible wires in the upper and lower margins of the mane and tail :D

Her snout looks a bit too short? Might be the angles though.
She looks really pretty, especially the eyes! Even if they were complicated, you've done great.
I really like her mane, but also her tails! Those curls man.

I've always wondered, how does one make those curls? I assume wires?

Her snout did turn out a bit too short - I'm baffled by my pattern. I use the same face pattern for every pony, but sometimes the snout is perfect and sometimes it's too short! I don't understand.

The curls are made with very thin, flexible pieces of wire running along the top and bottom edges of the mane and tail :)

Very cute! <3 :iconmonkeyloveplz:

A small suggestion, however. I would recommend making the pony's muzzle a little bigger next time, like this one here: [link]

Other than that, it's spot-on! I love it~~ :iconomgsocuteplz:

For some reason, sometimes the muzzle turns out long enough and sometimes it doesn't, even though I use the same pattern every time. One day I'll understand my own pattern...
