Applesass Custom Plush for :iconnazegoreng:

PROCESS
:bulletyellow: AJ is made from mango, sunshine and red minky. 

Her eyes and cutiemark were embroidered with a Brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software. The eyes were designed and digitised by me. Her pattern was also designed by me. Her hooves contain poly pellets so she can stand well on her own. She is 17 inches to the top of her head. She has flat hooves and 3d sculpted ears. She has wire in her tail to add support. Her hat has plastic mesh inside to hold it's shape. 

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. 

COMMENTS
:bulletyellow: Since Sydneigh (pony convention) is coming up for me and Ashleigh Ball is attending, I figured I should make an Applejack to bring along with my Dashie. I was also in desperate need of a simple plush to make after Smaug XD. I made a few tweaks to her pattern too, the pictures don't show it too well but I think she's the best mare body I've made thus far. 

I love her sassy face (below) so based her expression off that, but gave her a smile to make her look cheeky rather than annoyed. 
AJ Face by liamwhite1
I'm super happy with how she came out. Definitely my best applehorse yet. I spent a fair while tweaking my hair patterns for her to get it just right. I've just finished making a pattern for Shining Armour so expect to see him, Dashie and AJ at Sydneigh if you are attending. 

PLEASE zoom in to check out her details!

She always has the best expressions


and are the tufts at the end of her side mane and tail separate from the main parts or is it all one piece?

hey naze, do you have any useful tips for making manes and tails you could give? ^^ You are REALLY good at this and im just wondering ^^;

:iconnazegoreng:
Nazegoreng Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Sure! Did you have any particular manes in mind? 

For AJ here you can see I split all her spikes into separate pieces, with the main piece having a gusset underneath it to give it body. Separating spikes on manes imo gives you far more defined spikes. I do the same with RDs hair. The main piece is just patterned by tracing that piece from the show in photoshop and adding a gusset underneath that thins to the front and thickens at the middle

For Pinkamena you really just want to trace a profile shot of the tail from a vector. Widen the thickest part a little to compensate for the curve of the fabric when you stuff it. Use satin stitching for the lines. Same with Mauds as their tails are pretty much identical. You don't need to do anything crazy for those tails :)

Haha, that expression is great. I love it. And she looks so soft!

Who knows? Maybe Ashleigh Ball will get to see her cheeky expression at Sydneigh. That would be pretty awesome.

That Applesass! Oh gosh, Naz, she is just such a joy to look at! Love the eye expression and am so, so happy you went with it!

There certainly seems to be a slimming sleekness in her front view. I just especially love, love the way you plush for perfection from every single degree. The changes to her mane and tail are unmistakable and so, so lovely. As if she were ripped from the show itself. You can just see all the progress that you have made since the gorgeous version late last year. It's stunning.

Have an awesome time at Sydneigh! I know everyone will love seeing you and the gals (and gorgeous Shining!).

Awesome work, Naz. She looks beautiful for your first A.J plush in quite some time! Looking back at your first one, I can see all the improvements that you've made over the past year. It's truly something special, and you keep improving daily. :) I especially love what you did with the sass face — that smile really compliments the face, and the original seems a bit too sarcastic to be on a plush. :iconpinkiepiesillyplz:

Oh wow, Sydneigh is coming up really soon. There's less than a month left to go! I bet she looks a lot better IRL, and I can't wait to see you and your plushies. :iconpinkieisexcitedplz:
