moonstuck bat pony customs by egophiliac moonstuck bat pony customs by egophiliac
Aaand the bat pony twins! Yes, they're Sunshine and Meadowlark (secretly everyone in Moonstuck has a name; they don't get used in text because of the writing style, and also the nicknames and name suggestions are hilarious and I love them).

Meadowlark will be for sale at the June/July BroNYcon. Sunshine may visit the con, but he will not be for sale, because he has multiple issues that I feel make him unsellable -- so he gets to stay home with me. c:

They're made from Scootaloo heads and Sweetie Bell bodies, the leftovers from my two Woona customs. Their noses, ears, and wings were made from Super Sculpey; I airbrushed them grey and painted their eyes in acrylic (Sunshine was finished before he got the eyepatch, or I would've just sculpted it on, it would've looked a lot better :icondoublefacehoofplz:). Their heads are glued on and cannot move.

Their wings were painted separately and glued on, and they've been rehaired in Black Magic from Dollyhair. Sunshine's patch is felt and blue thread.

This was my first try doing add-ons like a colt nose and the bat ears (to say nothing of the wings). ...I, uh, still have a lot to learn -- my sculpting is not at all smooth. Still they turned out a lot better than I thought they would, there were a few times when I was tempted to scrap them completely. I'm also new to short hairstyles, as you can see.

Sunshine is just as unlucky as his canon counterpart, by the way. He's been dropped, developed a wart from a bubble of sealant on his chin, refused to have his eyes be painted properly, had some of his hair fall out (which you can actually see in his close-up), and his front wing snapped off completely at one point and took a chunk of his paint job with it. I was so frustrated that I was ready to have him lose the wing in canon, but he's adorable so I forgive him. This time.

Everyone knows if there's something wrong with a product it makes it VINTAGE and UNIQUE.

Otherwise, MUST BUYYY.

It would be very sad if he lost his wing in canon, he would be hindered for life D:

Adorable! I've been wanting to customize some batwing ponies, they're awesome. :)

I have a problem with smooth sculpting too, but I find it helps if you sand it after baking/curing (sculpey and apoxies can both be sanded). It helps "blend" it into the toy more and smooths out flaws. :)

Frolicsome Meadowlark the whistling prancing pony ( can hit every high note like a bawss)
Sunshine Smiles the amazing tap dancing bat pony ( HE. DOES NOT. WHISTLE.)

The wing on Frolics left wing looks out of place/awkward. Great Woona and Bat-twins ponies. Nice job

sunshine is actually my favorite of the two, your right he's adorable.
Satoh Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
Seems like you might need to pre-crease the hair before insertion, and also you may need to poke a few extra holes due to the sparseness of their current mohawks... Perhaps it's the hair or even the absurd proportions on the official toy molds... but it seems as though they have some rather massive foreheads...

I'm assuming you baked or boiled the sculpy at some point... right? Otherwise it will devour the plastic like a ravenous beast... eh... well an extremely patient ravenous beast...

That's a good idea, thank you! (Yes, the Cutie Mark Crusader molds have huuuge foreheads...)

Yep, I cured the Sculpey first thing.

These are really good, I'm impressed :)
Solid job with the custom wings and ears. It can't have been easy to sculpt that!

Sunshine really is my favorite bat pony! He's such a gimp!! Which is why he is forever Gimp Bat Pony to me. I wish I could go to broNYcon just for his brother though!

"They're made from Scootaloo heads and Sweetie Belle bodies" for some reason that sounds far more disturbing than it actually is.
Sunshine still obviously the popular one! If only that poor pony would stop getting injured. True to his character in toydom. They're really awesome either way.

These are so cool! I actually really like how the bat ears came out, they're cute. Not at all bad for a first time! And it's fun getting to see the three of them together!
