here are my ponies. I've had them all for a while and they are all in a WIP stage cause I am either afraid to go further or just don't know how, or don't have the supplies.
fluttershy is the only one I consider "done" pretty much. Rainbow's bangs need some work that may include just a trim.
Rarity, I don't know what to do with her. I've tried curling her hair wrapping it around a pen or pencil, but it comes out wavy, and even that does not hold more than a day.
Twilight also needs a trim, and I need to figure out how to get her bangs to sit right. her mane needs a trim too, but I hate taking scissors to them. terrifying. D:
Applejack has a stubborn group of hairs that likes to stick off in a completely different direction, but it's tamed for this picture, I hope it stays put. She needs a trim, some red rubber bands, freckles, and her hat.
You can see that I tried curling the front of pinkie's mane. It won't come out of that wavy state. Her hair is SO THICK for some reason, where my applejack seems to have thin sparse hair. I don't have any of the proper equipment to fool with pinkie so she is pinkamina for now.
So i'd like to ask... what supplies do I need to buy to work on them? As I said I figure I need to buy some rubber bands for AJ, a white-out pen perhaps for her freckles. don't know what to do for her hat, guess i'm gonna make her one out of paper or felt one day if I can figure it out.
I once saw someone's rarity that had been done with some dollar store curlers, and it turned out fantastic, so I will look into that. What did you guys use to style your rarity? I've tried wrapping her mane around her body or another pony (lol) but it never came out any good. I am also thinking of putting more eyelashes on rarity, but I am terrified of messing them up, lol.
Despite being a girl I don't have any hair supplies aside from fasteners. I don't even know how to use a bobby pin. :P But I know bobby pins or q-tips seem to be the way to go for pinkie. Anyone have any tips?
Finally, I really, really wish I understood thatching. I tried with applejack's mane, but I lifted my hands, and her hair went right back into place. And it did not look right, anyway. So I guess I was doing it horribly wrong. I want to have nicely styled manes, but I suck. .__.
My ponies sit on my desk at all times, but playing with them makes me so happy. My own little mane six right in my hands! :D makes me giggle. fluttershy was my first, then RD (I picked her up one day while picking up a second round of strep meds, I am convinced she helped me get better), then got rarity, TS, AJ, and PP all in one day. I was like a ball of joy walking through the store with my ponies. :D
Anyway, there's my novel of a first post. if anyone has any suggestions, comments, stories to share, please do :3 /)
