Lifesize Rainbow Dash Custom Plush

For: :iconnazegoreng: 

PROCESS
:bulletyellow: Dashie was made from baby blue, cherry red, orange, sunshine, dark lime, azure and purple minky. 

Her eyes and cutiemark were fully machine appliquéd (using my sewing machine, not my embroidery machine). They incorporate a variety of cottons and white satin. Her eyes are also airbrushed with a gradient. 

Her pattern was designed by me.
She is 42 inches to the top of her hair. She has 3d hooves and 3d sculpted ears. Her entire body is fitted with an internal PVC skeleton so she can stand very well on her own. Her tail is also supported by PVC and it supports it's own weight. Her hooves have poly pellets to further balance her. Her wings are wired to keep their position and shape. She has a zipper on her back and tail that were to help with the stuffing process. All of her legs, tail, side mane and most of her body are lined with heavy quilt batting to act as an internal skin, smoothing her out greatly and reducing wrinkling. She is stuffed with polyfill stuffing and foam. 

Her element of harmony is removable via magnets and is made from spandex covered foam. I used this tutorial:

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


COMMENTS
I've wanted to make a lifesize pony for over a year now, but I didn't want to make one till I was absolutely 100% confident in my pattern. Making something this large and expensive wasn't something I wanted to take lightly. I've spent several months researching, preparing and saving for her materials. It wasn't an easy choice, but I ended up going with Dashie, who is IMO the best looking plush out of the mane 6 and a favourite of mine. 


PLEASE zoom in to check out her details

A big thanks to the following people: 

:iconraycam01: for being amazingly supportive, helping me with the skeleton construction and photography (when I was in shot). 
:iconfireflytwinkletoes: for helping me with my applique
:iconbuttercupbabyppg: for general tips and advice
:icondoublebackstitcharts:  for general tips and advising me on 3d hooves

This is incredible - the amount of work that went into making her is super impressive in the first place, but to get such an amazing-looking result is mindblowing. I love how her eyes and cutie-mark came out, too - did you do the satin-stitching by machine? I struggle sometimes to get it to come out smoothly but it looks really slick here.

All her applique was done with my standard sewing machine yes ^_^. I had to use A LOT of stabilisers of different kinds to make sure it was smooth

Huge plushies are always a treat to look at! She's absolutely gorgeous~ I'm super looking forward to seeing your floppy pattern. I know I want to do a laying Dash with fleece sometime, make a sweet bean bag chair haha! That's a long way away for me, though. Thanks as always for sharing your talent with us!

That's lighter than I was expecting, I'll look forward to hearing how much she weighs! Still an amazing job, often flaws and stuff are emphasised when you size up but she still looks accurate and amazing.

I love that you even have her hooves a shape instead of just making them flat at the bottom.
I usually find pony plushies to look the cutest from the side, but here, oh my goodness, the front-view is just irresistible. ^o^

This is absolutely fantastic, oh my god. I'm such a sucker for huge plush toys and the materials and work you've done is nothing short of spectacular. You did a fantastic job with the pattern as well, it's magnificently proportioned and wonderfully expressive.

Gosh, Dash isn't even my favourite, but I would no joke hang myself around that plushie's neck like a five year old. She just looks huggable. Beautiful work, absolutely beautiful.
