I haven't decided yet lol. The Gala ones take up a TON of time and energy. So maybe ^^;

Hey! I'm the one who bought her as well as Vinyl Scratch at BroNYCon, and don't worry, they're in a great home! I take very good care of everything I have especially art. Gala Dash and Vinyl Scratch are among my most favorite possessions and no harm will ever be done to them. Keep up the amazing work, it's amazing and I love it!

I know how you feel. I can't afford to buy things and I can barely afford the tickets to go let alone the tables lol. But hopefully the con will leave me a little better off in time for Otakon (where I spend WAY too much money!) lol

Well the ponies are available at ToysRUs or on amazon (where I get them). Use Super sculpey. (some people use colored sculpey and don't paint it, but I think painting looks nicer) splurge on the slightly more expensive acryllic paint (the two cheapest brands at michaels, applebarrel and craft-something take about 10 layers each! It's terrible!) Get plenty of white to prime with. Oh! And people reccommend getting mesh sculpture wire for hair, tails, etc. :) A lot of people recommend milliput (air dry), but I haven't tried it yet. If you DO make some, definitely let me know! I'd love to see them :)

I've been actually lookin up a few ppl to see what they do and did find a girl who makes hers with millipud, and ans said something about apoxy scupt too. and i was wondering, you use super sculpey, you have to bake that right? how do you do that? just sculpt it on the pony, bake it, then glue it on the pony?

Nsomniotic Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You can either bake it on directly (if you do this correctly it bonds with the plastic and will stay on) But it is probably more secure to mold it on, take it off, bake it and then glue it on with super glue. For some things that isn't always a reasonable way of doing it. But you can always put a small layer of aluminum or something under the sculpey part, bake it while on the pony, then remove it and glue it on. There are a bunch of different ways to do it :) And you can rebake the pony with more additions once it is fully cool. Just be careful not to overbake!
