Gala Pinkie Pie by Narxinba222 Gala Pinkie Pie by Narxinba222
EQUESTRIA DAILY

---------------------------------

She is 1/6. The other 5 of the mane 6 are currently being made, so stay tuned!!

Grand Galloping Gala Pinkie Pie

The toy I used is a 3" brushable pinkie pie: www.hasbro.com/common/producti...
This took me about a week to make. Her dress & accessories are made from polymer clay and acrylic paint.

The 'bum' part of the dress isn't quite as huge as its meant to be, but i had a hard enough time with that part of the dress ripping as it was, let alone trying to make it bigger. :lol:

I'm here at the Grand Gala,
For it is the best party
But the one thing it was missing was a pony named Pinkie!
For I am the best at parties, all the ponies will agree...
Ponies playing, ponies dancing
With me at the Grand Gala~

One of the most well-made customs of it's type, this gorgeous Pinkie Pie outfit from her memorable night at the Gala is sure to satisfy and impress.

The mane is adorable and styled very well, giving a realistic, yet show-accurate style of the character's trademark unruly curls.
The dress looks natural and the material thin enough not to look bulky and thick enough to pass off for the cartoon-style incarnation.
The colors are bright and perfectly blended, and the little accessories a lovely treat for the eyes.

There are a few problems with the painting technique. Fingerprints and nail marks can be seen on the dress and it's distracting, and the outline of the candy cones are a bit too thick. Better results can be achieved using gloves and a thinner brush, for a smoother finish. The flowers on the hem of her gown look a bit roughly made, if they were to be handled as delicately as the bow on the hat, it'd look wonderful.

All in all, Pinkie looks as charming as ever in this repaint; this is a custom well worth the time and effort put into creating it and is certain to please the show-accuracy desire of the fans, excellent job. :)

I'm assuming you sculpted the dress on top of Pinkie, but I was wondering how you managed to remove it and bake it, I'm thinking of creating a Maid-Rainbow Dash and was wondering what you choose to do :3

im sure there are areas you could cut without it being noticeable, then glue the parts onto her afterwards.

But i baked it with the clay still on the pony. i set it about 30 degrees (celcius) lower than the recommended setting, and cooked it for longer. she was in there for about 30-45minutes. I didnt do ANYTHING to her hair before she was baked (hairspray is flammable) and i was extremely careful taking her out of the oven (shes very soft)I stayed at the oven the whole time watching her

I cooled her down quickly using a fan

Ah, thank you so much, I might have to end up doing that, it certainly is dangerous work :P

Thanks again :3

its not dangerous so long as your careful and dont put anything flammable on her ;)

also if you were worried about the hair, dont be, there is no negative effects on nylon hair that i could spot by baking the toy. it was as normal as ever afterwards

I removed my RD's mane to chose to sculpt it instead, I did give it a coat in acrylic paint, but I don't believe that will be an issue, I just didn't want her to go all Wicked Witch of the West on me (I'm meeeeelting D:) Thank you again :3
