Rarity v3 by hystree Rarity v3 by hystree
-SOLD-

My third Rarity!  She has a new mane and tail pattern which was quite a lot of work, the tail is 3D and in one continuous piece (and quite an inexplicable pattern to look at the pieces).. took a lot of steps to draft @_@  There's a couple things I may want to revise for a next time but I'm pretty happy with it overall.

She's kind of like a prototype to me, she has center seam on her chin because I was trying something new.  The lighter parts of her mane and tail have hand painted permanent pigment gradient, but it doesn't show up well in the photos and is a bit darker in person I think. Once again I'm not sure if the colors show accurately because of the blueness of my current monitor, Rarity's man is made of light purple and mauve minky (with hand shading). Also her hoof was slightly twisted so I sewed it into a half step which looks pretty cute imo, gives her some nice posing options and liveliness :3

It's purple by benartex (I think), which is not as dark as shannon purple. The colors may look off, I couldn't properly correct them due to my monitor.  Thank you too :3

I have to say that you are my number 1 pony plushie maker.  This is my favorite Rarity ever.  This looks so complex.  I am so in awe of your work.  Just wow.

Nuuuuu too much amazing praise from someone so talented I'm not worthy  *rolls away*  ;__;  Thank you dear <3

Only the tail really gave me troubles, I just find it hard to actually think in terms of how shapes make up pattern pieces around anything more complex than straight silhouettes in in my mind..  don't know if this makes sense :P  I had to sculpt a tail in clay to help figure things out.

I've had to sculpt pieces in clay first to figure things out, but I don't do it very often because polymer clay is so expensive.  I won't be able to enter your drawing, I am broken hearted...but whoever gets her is going to be sooooooo happy.

Oh, wow!  This has to be the closest to on-model I've seen in a pony plush!  In all others, including the ones I've bought, the head is ever so slightly off in some way.  Yours looks almost perfect.  Her mane and overall body shape look spot-on as well.  Nice work!  If I didn't already have so many Rarity plushes, I would make you an offer for this beauty.

Oh my, thank you so much, I'd be honored if Rarity lives up to this praise!  It is quite a struggle to get a plush close to accuracy and it seems one always has to compromise in one way or another, so your comment means a lot :)

Looking at your Rarity v2 You've improved a lot!  Excellent job.  And don't worry if she is a prototype!  Just because may be able to see "improvements" doesn't mean that Rarity here isn't worth a lot of money.

Well I don't want to sell her for too much since she's a prototype, maybe I'm just weird this way.  I'd love to see one of my Rarity's in your collection too btw!  Also we can still do that trade at some point if you sill want..  I know I'm just so reliable though. ;_;  But really!
Thank you so much for the comments, I'm really happy you like her, being such a Rarity connoisseur :)
