My daughter is crazy about My Little Pony, so I thought I want to make something special for her birthday related to My Little Pony. I remembered a while ago, one of the OOAK Doll artist – Hextian, has created amazing dolls inspired by My Little Pony. You can view on his youtube channel.
The first thing I searched when I had this idea is My Little Pony character I wanted to make. My daughter likes Princess Twilight Sparkle because it’s in the movie we watched a few months ago ^^. But I thought something related to pink will be better because I want to put it as cake topper. See more detail about the cake on my other post here.
There were some monster high dolls I considered:
- Jane Boolittle – which is perfect to be Princess Twilight Sparkle. It has already the same skin tone and similar hair color.
- Gigi Grant – which is perfect to be Pinky Pie. Its skin is pink but need to change her hair color a little bit.
- Lagoona Blue – which is perfect to be Rainbow Dash. But I hated its colorful hair :p so I tried to find blue Little Pony which has pink hair. So it becomes Sweetie Blue, which also has cupcake mark.
The color is not exactly the same since I only has a few doll hair options to made as a wig. It took about a month to finally finish this doll. I worked on it during midnight so my daughter was not seeing it since I wanted it as a surprise. I repainted it twice before getting the actual look I wanted – an innocent and cute face. Sewing her dress was also a challenge for me because I dont have any sewing skill. I did the hair band (the cupcake is available on my shop) and added some details on the shoes.
I am so happy to see the result, it is not perfect but love it so much because it is my first complete ooak doll I have ever made. And the best is my daughter loves it so much.
