I can't believe I actually did this. Eight months ago I had no idea of the My Little Pony phenomena. Well...let's be fair, I had some idea. I had seen a few Rule 34 pictures my friends shared with me, and I've been pushed to watch the show a lot of times (to which I usually replied with a made up excuse). Never, not even in my wierdest day dreams, I would've imagined me doing a custom Pony Doll. But here we are. And I am really happy with how it turned out.
I guess it means nothing when I say that even my mom liked it. But you really don't know how hyper-critical my mom is. If you thought the pre-readers in Equestria Daily can get nit-picky and critical, they are nothing compared to my mom. She is super critical, and mostly scoffs about the things that I do. She loved the doll, and she was impressed with how I did the face. So yeah, this is the one case where a mother's opinion does carry some weight.
Have some photos!
