Rarity by thurinus Rarity by thurinus
Finally, after three weeks of iterations, Rarity! The personal obligation to make my final character of the main cast the best possible one had me going through and rejecting a yard of embroidered minky, 3 manes, and 2 tails, and probably brought me to the brink of losing my sanity.

Had to take her photos outside in daylight because her snow-white coat washed out in my light tent :(

No wires. Pony body modified from *valleyviolet.

You cannot fathom how much I love this plushie. I absolutely adore everything about Rarity, and you made this plushie with what looks like such high quality that I must get on my knees and beg for it. How much would something this perfect go for?

Hi, Christmas is coming up and I would love to get my best friend a present. This would be the perfect one for her because she loves rarity. I would love to know if you could make one for me. Can you please email me at purplecat0202@gmail.com for information on her price, size, etc.

Thanks - Purplecat

Yeah, partly because I made a personal promise to make them safe for cuddling, and because I'm too lazy to look for wire to use. Mostly because I'm too lazy to look for wire to use :P

So how'd you get her forelock to stay up like that? interfacing underneath?
Reply
:iconthurinus:
thurinus Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I had one layer of thin batting between the forelock pieces to make it stiff enough to stand at the root, then I tacked the hair to her cheek :)

You did a fantasic job with the main and tail! So curly! How did you manage to make it stay like that? Is there wire between the fabric?

Thanks! And nope, no wires. I just used strategically-placed tacking stitches to set curls where they belong :)

Beautiful!

By the way, the embroideries got here today. They are so lovely! May I ask, how do you get the irises to be so thick and a different texture from the rest of the piece? The rest of the eye resembles mine but I can't figure that out.

Thanks again for your help- you've been very kind :)

:iconthurinus:
thurinus Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks!

I just set the iris colour blocks to be zigzag stitches so they come out with that radial patterning. I think it looks thick because the ends sit atop the edges of the black of the pupil and the sclera, so each thread is basically a "bridge" between those 2 colour blocks. Since you use SEU too, I can show you one of my example embroidery source files to check out the settings I use if you want.

I'll have to try that. I figured it was /something/ to do with zigzag settings, but honestly I kind of stink at the program. lol.

If you don't mind, I'd love to see one, sure :) my email is sophiesplush@gmail.com.

I'm featuring you Wednesday, keep an eye out!
