The Element of Fabulosity by LavenderExtract The Element of Fabulosity by LavenderExtract
So, after much longer than I expected, a lot of hard work and a lot of stabbing myself in the fingers, she's done!

Rarity is approximately 14" tall, 16" including her horn, and approximately 9.5" inches from nose to flank, not including her tail. Her head is jointed and can be turned a full 360 degrees, and she is almost completely machine sewn, though her mane, tail and horn are hand sewn on.
She is made of minky with hand embroidered eyes and cutie marks. Unfortunately there is wire in her mane and tail, I was hoping to find a way to do it without wire but have thus far been unsuccessful.
More views of Rarity here.


To head off questions about this; I do want to start taking commissions, however I have no clue what to charge so anyone interested will just have to be patient while I work that out.

Moveable head, hmm? If this was available as a commission now I'd be very happy.

Yes! Hand stitched eyes and cutie marks! they are always a winner in my book but they tend to be costlier to produce but sell for a high value in the end. It's something to keep in mind when making charges.

I'm working on getting commissions going as quick as I can. :)
Yeah, right now I'm trying to find a balance between charging enough for all the labor involved in hand embroidering them, but also not charging way more than every other plush maker. XD

Very impressive. Maybe you could talk to White Dove about commissions?

I may contact her, I've just been hesitant to contact anyone as I'm some no-name brand new plush maker and anyone I might talk to are fairly big-name. >.>

Well, she is really nice and usually responds promptly. Or if you want to talk to her in person, you should come to PON3 Con. She is doing a panel there on plushies.

I had to make a plug for my convention. Good luck.

Hehe, plugging is fine, but I live in Oregon so that would be a looong trip for a broke me. :)
Thank you though, and I think I will send her a note.
