Before anything else, I just wanted to wish you all a blessed Samhain. Hold close the ones you love, and remember well those who have already passed from this world. As the world enters the dark half of the year, gather close to share stories and memories, and soon we’ll return to the light. Brightest blessings, may your lives be filled with warmth, caring, and many wonderful new memories to share in the future.
Now… I want you to say hello to Fairy Berry. The girl was just thrilled when I finally let her see the ponysona costume I’d created for her. As I helped her into each piece, she’d run to the bathroom to see how it looked: and with pants, sweater, two wigs, and ears, that was several trips to check out her reflection. So she was quite happy to show it off while I snapped a few pictures before she headed to school this afternoon. It’s totally adorable on her, and the wings worked just as I’d hoped: they actually flap as she walks, skips, and hops along. 😀
I’m addicted to art commissions. I can’t help it. There are so many great fledgling artists out there, and places like Deviant Art just makes it so easy to find them.
This latest one is a My Little Pony piece featuring: the girl’s OC (original character) Fairy Berry – whom she created a couple of years ago, my OC Prairie Lily – whom I created back in the late nineties, and Big Macintosh (one of the characters on MLP Friendship is Magic) – which is what we’ve nicknamed her Daddy.
Thanks so much to xxStrawberry for all her hard work on this one. The girl’s personality shines through very clearly. LOL
One of these times I’ll have to share all the awesome pony fan-art people have made for us in the past. The girl and I have received some beautiful gifts from other MLP-lovers all around the globe. It’s become a collection we both truly treasure, and there really is nothing like sharing something you love with someone you love. 🙂
