Firefly by thurinus Firefly by thurinus
Rainbow Dash's Gen 1 predecessor - Firefly!

I recently decided to start making ponies for others, and began with one of the first requests I got from a colleague and friend almost half a year ago. Not sure how long I can keep this up, though...

Fun fact: This was the first time I remember ever having to tie a bow :P

Thanks to :iconspacevoyager: and :iconmlpt-fan: for Minky colour suggestions!

If Disney owned Ponies, this is exactly what those plushies would look like at the Disney Store! :3

Oof, this is so awesome ^^ Dash Academy totally made this character for me. I wish I could buy one of these :V They certainly won't make an official one. Anyway, this is fantastic :3 Did your friend get hype?

May I ask what is the color of her body? Someone commission one from me and I think is the same of pinkie Pie.. but I like to ask first ^^

Yup! I used Bubblegum Pink for her body as I do with Pinkie Pie, and Azure for her hair pieces.

She is soooooo cute~! I have been wanting to make a Firefly lately!

A question, I've seen so many plush makers put the detail lines in the  mane and tails, how did you do yours? :3

Thanks :) I believe most of us just use satin/zigzag stitches on our machines. Those with machines capable of larger embroidery areas may delegate it entirely to an embroidery file and machine.

She is adorable!
I like that, in the front view, her eyes are actually focussed rather than staring off blankly, yet you haven't distorted the side views.
Most splendiferous!

Thanks :) Yeah I try my best to make the eyes look right from both the front and side, even if it means compromising the profile fidelity to the show.
