Sunset Shimmer by fireflytwinkletoes Sunset Shimmer by fireflytwinkletoes
Finally! I've had Sunset finished for almost three weeks, but I just didn't have the time to make her saddlebag and Twilight's crown. I managed to find a bit of time this weekend to do that, so here she is! I'm very happy with her - my favorite part about her is that she actually looks decently pleasant from the side: a little haughty, maybe, but not bad...and then you look at her from the front and SHE'S SO EVIL. She's been mocking you this entire time and you just didn't know it yet. Oh Sunset - why did you steal the crown when it doesn't even fit over your silly hair?

Her mane has some wire in it to hold the complex shape. Cutie marks and eyes are appliqued, the crown is a ridiculous concoction of satin, cotton, crafting card, wire, applique, and way too much thread. The saddlebag is black suede, fully functional with a snap closure. It velcroes around her middle so that there is no bag on the other side, as appears in the show. The crown doesn't fit in the bag, unfortunately - it would have had to have been comically tiny (or the bag comically large) for it to work.

Awesome looking plushie! You see, I plan on making my own Sunset Shimmer plushie, do have any recommendations of what Minky to use or how to do her mane?

Thanks :)

I used Bright Yellow and Red for her mane. Her mane is a little tricky - my best advice is just to make sure your pattern for it is really spot on before cutting out the fabric, and be careful with which color stripes go where :P I messed up the stripes a couple of times and had to fix it.

I really like how well sculpted her muzzle is.  A lot of plushies I've seen have really poor looking muzzles.  The body is also proportionally perfect!

Good job!

Thanks very much! I've been working to get my muzzles right for a long time :D
