Holiday Display 2012 Part 1

This year I've decided to do something a little different with the Holiday Display.  Each Generation is getting it's own time in the spotlight so for four weeks the Ponies will share their take on a Holiday musical classic...

First up is G4.  The Ponies are getting ready for the holidays - decorating, singing, and spending time together.
Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la.
'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la la.
See the blazing yule before us, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la la la la la.
While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Hail the new ye lads and lasses! Fa la la la la la la la la.
Sing we joyous all together, Fa la la la la la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la la la la la.

Little Goth(ish) Ponies

I sort of think of these two as a pair, since I worked on them together and tried a new eye style on them.
Ribbon and Lace
Dark Rose
Ribbon and Lace is a TS head on an RD body, fully repainted.  Her symbol is between her wings, for a change.  Her hair is Dollyhair Sugarplum, Mulberry Crush, Hematite, and Black Magick.

Dark Rose is made from a Rarity, and so has her original body colour.  Her eyes and symbol have, of course, been hand painted.  Her hair is Dollyhair Venom.  Her neck ribbon is a result of her neck splitting when I tried to get the head off.  (I seem to have this problem only with white G4s - I wonder if the white plastic is thinner/weaker?)

Both customs have jewel earrings.  I tried something a bit different on the eyes of these, using Darkhorse's eye style as an inspiration.  Quite happy with the results.

Seashell

It's getting cold and dark.  Let's think about Summer for a moment.
Seashell here has been a long time in the making.  She received her full body repaint before the 2010 MLP Fair when I was on a tropical pony kick, but I ran out of time to finish her before the Fair and so she sat unfinished.  In the meantime, I decided I didn't much care for the original design I'd planned for her.  So she continued to sit.

Recently, she received her symbol and hair.  Her hair is Dollyhair. Buttercream, Fairy's Breath, Peaches and Cream, and Mermaid.

TARDIS

It was only a matter of time before I made a TARDIS pony.

TARDIS sold quickly at Geek Market.  She's a RD head on a TS body, fully repainted in much the same style as my nebula ponies.  Except this one has a tiny TARDIS on her display side (and a comet on her non-display side.)

Her hair is Dollyhair Black Magick, Forget-Me-Not, and After Midnight.

I had hoped to have a few more Doctor Who Ponies done for Geek Market, but alas, there just wasn't time.  Maybe next year.

Chibi Pac Pony

It's been awhile since I've done a Ponyville-sized custom.


If memory serves me right, Pac Pony started out as a Pinkie Pie.  She's been fully repainted.  Her symbol is Pac Man and the four Ghosts following the dots.  She was snapped up at Geek Market.

I'm going to have to make a full-sized version of this custom at some point.
