Mare-do-well Fashion Style Custom.
Made from a Cadence base, hand sculpted with super sculpey, painted with high quality acrylics and sealed with mod podge.
I had allot of fun making this custom. When Lykaios asked me to make a Mare-do-well, I knew that it would push my sculpting to the extreme. While she doesn't have a mane or tail, her hat and cape were real challenges. The cape is quite sturdy and supports itself with no internal wiring.
Overall I'm very glad I added the fabric ruffles on her nose and neck. I also filled in the mouth cavity so it appeared to be more of a mask. I think it was definitely the right choice.
I'm really happy with how she turned out. It looks like her cape is blowing in the breeze! Thank goodness the cape and hat turned out sturdy, as I was worried about having to post her. After handling her now, no worries!
I really hope her new owner loves her as much as I do. I will be sad to see her go.

Please comment or fav if you like her. It would mean allot to me
Yeah, call me odd, but the wrinkles are what I love the most
I was so nervous about putting them in.. what if they hadn't turned out nicely..
But I am so glad that I did now. I filled in the mouth cavity too, so it appears to be a mask.
I decided to give sculpting a custom a try myself, so I went and bought a couple of figures. They are smaller than yours, because I'm going to just test how the process goes. But it was awfully hard to get their heads off! Also, apparently the cleaning liquid I have is not strong enough, since I can't get their eyes and markings off. They just smudge around. (Also, getting the hair from the head was just ARGH).
Makes me appreciate your work all the more!
I let the head soak in boiling hot water for a few minutes. Then get it out, dry it so I don't burn my hands, and go berserk with a screwdriver, breaking up the glue on the inside. It's amazing how much hair you can remove just hacking at it with a long screwdriver. Put it back in the hot water, and repeat a few times. Once most of the glue is broken, I just get my long, curved tweasers and pull all the hair out. You might need to work at some parts that have lots of glue though.
I use straight acetone to remove the marks, there is a knack to it. It just takes practise .
Anyway all the best with your custom work! Be sure to link me to your progress . If you need any help don't hesitate to ask.
I found some cheap nail polish remover from the nearby market: worked like a dream! I actually do have some rather good liquid remover/cleaner, but it for some reason didn't work on these. I have isopropyl alcohol for removing BJD-doll face-ups. They can't stand anything with acetone. Acetone would melt the resin they're made of.
And I'll link my stuff when I get my camera back from school. I really didn't think I'd end up doing anything that I'd need it from.
Anyway, do you think it would be a good idea to make artsy Rarity from Sweet and Elite? Because I have a blank Rarity waiting for modifications...
this is brilliant.
Does she still have her full ears? I can see the curve of the base, but I thought you going to have to cut them off to make the hat fit (as almost gruesome as that may sound).
Only the tips of her ears are cut off, so they do appear to go into the hat. I wasn't able to save them though . I can't wait to see Rainbow and Daring when they are done, or any progress shots once you start. I know your life is hectic right now .
I still can't get over how gorgeous she looks. Filling in the mouth cavity is an excellent idea that I didn't even think of. And I imagine it does look better as it is with half of the ears rather than taking them off altogether.
Some ears, a bunch of wings, some legs etc. I keep them incase I need them later for some unusual project.
I'm so thrilled you love her as much as you do. I can't wait to send your ponies off .
One of my friends wanted to come over and make one with me. She bought a Pinkie pie and by the time she had to rip her head off/mutilate her she couldn't do it. She still has her at home lol.
I've considered doing something really dark to freak out my friends by making myself a Cupcakes Pinkie and having her stand on a small platform over all the 'mutilated' ponies. Still pondering about that, though I probably will do it when I have time.
