White Light by fireflytwinkletoes White Light by fireflytwinkletoes
:iconakili-amethyst:'s OC, White Light. I am almost afraid to upload this plush. I have never had more trouble making an OC - it seemed like all the difficult things were twice as difficult, and all the easy things were hard. Her mane gave me quite a lot of grief. I tried some new things with the front part of her mane, hoping to make it both poofy and sideswept, as it is in Akili's drawings of her. I didn't realize just how difficult that would be. I used hand-dyed cotton for her multicolored eyes (although one eye turned out having more reds in it, whereas the other has more blue and green hues). Her glasses were an afterthought (she just didn't look right without them), so they are stitched to the end of her nose, rather than removable. They're easily taken off, however - only two stitches hold them in place. They're made of wire and iridescent purple beads, so they can be reshaped and molded very easily. Her fedora is made of stiff indigo satin and black satin ribbon, and is lined and removable.

Sorry the pictures aren't the best - I couldn't be bothered to wait for adequate lighting ^^;

That hair looks like such a challenge, and sounds like it was too! It looks great overall. I especially like how you did the cutie mark. Did you embroider the bubbly parts or did you dye the fabric? Nice work yet again Firefly!

Yikes, looks like a handful. I think you did an excellent job, though. The shape of the tail especially seems like a bit of a nightmare! Those plushie skills are really shining. :D
