The wings (on Soft Sunrise & Eventide), were kind of tricky but I found if I did them as wee bits layered on top of each other they were ok. I can't do G2, G3 or G4 wings though as they stick out of the body & are really annoying to actually form, so wi G2 Starcatcher I kind of cheated & found a Phony's saddle wi wings (you know the type), took the wings out, clipped them down to size, cut slots in the Pony & attached them that way:
I found the glitter glue in Hobbycraft & it's a gorgeous colour... Yep that IS my attempt at using 3d paint on a Pony as well... Nope it's NOT perfect...
And back to Customised clothing!!! As well as the flat sheet & pillowcase, I bought another piece of Pony fabric which was sold as a "sheet", but as one wasn't well done, but as I had it, I thought use it. I have only the two Ponies left to change into iron-on transfer off the original fabric, I'm thinking one on each arm, but the rest are all done & shoved on an old plain onesie of mine like so:
I blended the two images of the front & the back. The onesie is one of the first I ever found on sale when it was a brand new thing, & it burst a bitty wi the stitching, so I needed to resew a lot of it too...
You all know how I'm writing the Daring Do adventure??? Well, there are some characters in it I forgot to show you. I've actually finished writing the story & am currently working on a sequel in the opposite direction, but due to an awesome linkie I found here: jayisgames.com/games/pony-creator/ I was able to give an idea of what the characters look like, by piccies, so this post has a few:
This is Major. He features briefly in the first story, but comes in more of the second, along with the EPD, a highly capable defence force. I love how he turned out here. His rumpmark is a shield with a tree on it, to indicate his role in land-based defence.
Shaman only features in the first story. Zecora's cousin lives in a wild jungle area of the badlands south of Equestria. His rumpmark is a bootle of potion, like his stock in trade.
It was only after I got most of the way through Daring Do's first story I discovered the actual double-crosser Pony has no I in his name & it's spelt Caballeron. I put the I in to make him Cabailleron, which made him French, like the fellow in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, & as I say the unicorns are French, it made sense to give him a horn. He also has the short mane & messy tail I feature in the first story. Maybe he works with Caballeron??? Who knows... To indicate both his two-faced nature & his adventurousness, his rumpmark is an exotic mask.
This is Corporal Capbadge of the EPD. As I said, Major features a lot in the second story, so some of his Earth Pony Defence army will feature too. Capbadge grew up in a military family & she loves everything about bravery, courage & defence tactics. She's very proud to work for Major & takes her job seriously, aspiring to be just like everything she's grown to admire. Her rumpmark is a beret with a shield-shaped badge in the middle.
From the second story, which starts with Daring Do, & some others, going on holiday, there are a group of hostelling Ponies staying nearby some very familiar characters. Feathermay is one of them: she's a good flier & loves exotic birds, but the other seven haven't been released as toys (yet). This is Trekker, the leader of the hostellers. He LIVES for adventure, & wants to explore when he grows older. He is however cautious & knows the need to plan things. His rumpmark is a globe.
Jetset's family is very rich, but she wants some time to be herself before committing to the intense study, high-powered career & high-society lifestyle which is her destiny. She's posh-gone-casual, & is funding the hosteller's adventure. Her mother's cousin is a member of Unicorn Magical Shield, & will be thrilled to hear all about Jetset's adventures. She has a jet plane as her rumpmark.
Rucksack is the organiser of the group, & everything about him is neat & compact. He's the polar opposite of Rarity in how much he carries with him, but still manages to look smart & smell good (except for part of their adventure when there isn't enough water to take a shower, when Rarity shows him some of her things she insisted on taking with her, in spite of the troubles along the way). He & Rarity learn a good deal from each other. Rucksack is not just his name, it's also his go-to accessory AND his rumpmark.
Trilinguist here loves languages, in fact she doesn't want to stop at 3!!! She knows the best way to learn a language or dialect is to live in the place it's spoken, & she's a real help when it comes to some negotiations the adventurers have to do, translating for Fluttershy. Her rumpmark is an upper case U with an umlaut on top.
Risky becomes fast friends with Rainbow Dash & Do herself. Fearless, in love with flying & highly competitive, she & RD marshal some of the allies in the second story together when it's needed. RD, along with her adventure, even inspires her to apply for the Wonderbolts!!! Her rumpmark is a triangular sign with an exclamation mark in the middle: the sign for danger.
Say hello to Quill!!! He's the blogger of the group, & hopes one day to become a news reporter. His attention to detail helps the group a lot, as he recalls exactly what plants are needed to treat jellyfish stings, among other things. He never goes ANYWHERE without his diary/ journal/ notepad!!! His rumpmark is an inkwell with a feather in it.
And last but not least is Zoologer. He's a keen zoologist, & loves the wide diversity of the animals he encounters on the adventure. He & Fluttershy convince some small shy creatures to help them; while she tells them how wonderful it is to help others, he boosts them up with all their wonderful skills & amazing peculiarities. His rumpmark is a group of different animals studying each other.
EDIT ADDITION!!! Somepony has to hold the fort for the rest of EPD while Major's always out doing stuff. That somepony is Colonel Corral, & his rumpmark is a guard tower. He's a bit long in the tooth now & needs glasses due to his age, but he can still use his strategic mind to decide what needs done.
EDIT ADDITION!!! Meet Jade Beam, Jetset's mother's cousin in UMS. Agent Jade Beam is an experienced agent in between assignments when the State Of Emergency is announced in the second story. She, along with other agents, several of whom are real toys, are sent out by their chair-pony Lemony Gems to assist in finding out all they know. Twilight Sparkle & Starlight Glimmer, among others, have to teach the Agents the importance of trust, so that instead of trying to outdo each other, the agents instead learn to work together. Jade Beam's rumpmark is three gems emitting beams which merge into one.
EDIT ADDITION!!! Pinky Pie's family are mostly rock farmers as you know, but Pinky's not the only one who chose a different career path. Granite Shale is Pinky's cousin, & he's in the EPD. His rock-hard determination & strength take him a long way, & Granite is already a sergeant. His rumpmark is a rocky slope, signifying the fact he's also an excellent climber.
EDIT ADDITION!!! Trekker's sister, Ranger, loves exploring as much as her brother, but where he's more cautious, she prefers to charge into action, so it's no surprise she's in the EPD!!! Her rumpmark is a running earth Pony silhouette, indicative of her nature. Like Capbadge she's a Corporal.
EDIT ADDITION!!! There are six UMS agents who travel with Do & the first wave from Oyster Island, & two are male. Apart from Jade Beam, the UMS characters I feature are: Lemony Gems (actual toy & the head of UMS, who doesn't actually go on missions), Starbeam Twinkle (actual toy), Amethyst Star (blind bag & POP Pony), Dewdrop Dazzle (actual toy), Comet Tail (male blind bag), & this fellow, Burgundy Blast. His rumpmark is an explosion. As the EPD are the Earth Pony force (representing the US Army Rangers), & there's already the Wonderbolts for the pegasi & the air force, UMS, or Unicorn Magical Shield, are representative of the CIA & are made up entirely of unicorns, harnessing their magic in shape-shifting, truth spells & teleportation, among other things. UMS don't trust each other much, but the other Ponies, along with their adventure, helps them all learn the importance of working together as a team.
EDIT ADDITION!!! Major has parents!!! And they're retired & living in a cabin in the mountains where a wing of travelling dragons need to rest. This is the mother, Maple. Her rumpmark is a maple leaf & she was raised in the north & doesn't like the heat, so finds the mountains far more comfy climate wise. A wise friendly soul, she's tough as old boots & loves working in the garden.
EDIT ADDITION!!! And this is the dad, Oakley. He was brought up in a different mountain range near the badlands, & has a strong accent his wife has caught from living with him for so long. A quieter sort than Maple, he loves to take walks to collect water & chop firewood from dead trees. His rumpmark is an acorn & both met during their time in the EPD, agreeing to marry on retirement & set up home in the mountains of Unicorn Range.
Please, if you're reading my first story, leave your comments so I can add further instalments, get it finished, & begin uploading the second. Trust me, you'll think the second story is "bonza!!!"
