Custom Base:
Bride Pony
Media(s) used:
Citadel colours, hair (Pineapple and blend of Lucky Clover & Dark Envy) and gold tinsel all from CustomPony.com
Additional information:
When I was young(er) my family very seldom sat down to eat breakfast together. But we always followed the Swedish tradition af lighting the "advent candles". The first Sunday of December we would light the first candle (us kids always fighting about who would get the honour), the second Sunday we would light the first and second candle (and again, fight ;) ), and so on. It was a great tradition, all of us sitting in the candle light on these Sunday mornings, talking and being friendly to eachother, waiting for Christmas. I tried to capture this feeling of love and anticipation, and am very happy with the result. So I present to you; Advent.

Majesty
Media(s) used:
Citadel colours (paint), light blond nylon hair, fake emerald and gold thread.
Additional information:
This Majesty came to me, with chopped hair and a badly chewed horn. I felt so sorry for her that I
decided to have my first go at making a custom. I "borrowed" my boyfriends Warhammer colours and bought some fake braids to use for mane and tail, and finally I used an old gem a friend had given me
when we were kids, and this is the result. I call her Enchanted Rose, and although I had planned to sell her, she has taken up recidency in my heard, trying to be in charge of all make overs and customs in progress. ;)

Media(s) used:
acrylics, CustomPony.com hair / nylon hair
Additional information:
These are the fairies from Sleeping Beauty, Flora, Fauna and Merriweather. Sleeping Beauty has always been one of my top favorite Disney movies since I was a little girl. It was a lot of work making these ladies, and a lot of injuries, but it was worth all of it. They are probably my favorite customs I've ever done! The symbols on each of them represent the gifts they gave Princess Aurora when she was a baby. Flora gave her beauty and her symbol is a rose. Fauna gave her the gift of song and her symbol is a songbird with music notes.

(see Flora above) ...Merriweather gave her gift to Aurora after Malificent cursed her and said she would prick her finger on her 18th birthday, causing her to die. Merriweather's gift was that she would not die upon pricking her finger, but she would just sleep until her true love kissed her. Her symbol is three stars to symbolize sleep.

hair, paint, Makins Clay, bells, wool, charms, a bit of leather string an sparklies for the eyes.
Additional information:
Inspiration was Christmas, or rather the pagan way of celebrating Christmas (Yule or Joel in dutch). She has bells and a horn to make noise and ward off the evil spirits. The colors are based on the darker nights and late autumn, hence also the naked tree symbol. She wears a reindeerskull mask as people tended to dress up as animals and resemble the Wild Hunt. The charms on the mask are leaves and on one side an acorn, on the other a eternal knot. I couldn't get all the detail on the photographs.. She has black surrounding her eyes and lower lip that do not show very well. Her creme markings go up her bum as well as up her neck/throat where they fade into dark brown. I will hopefully forget how many layer of paint are on this one.. And how shaky I was doing the eyes! The eyes have four different colors in, brown black, creme, yellow, white and bronze.. eh thats five haha! And I added a crystal shiny
