Just thought I’d do a quick blog post about my recent pony craze with My Little Pony. I’ve been shopping around for some cute plushies (uh-oh~) and was quite surprised at how valuable and expensive a lot of these pony plushies are. I’m talking about the handcrafted ones, not the mass produced ones. And the level of detail is impeccable! Take a look for yourself – these are just a few I quickly pulled from Deviant Art.
And the price of these ponies are at least $250USD and above. Believe it or not, $250USD is actually pretty cheap in the world of pony plushies! Take a look at this Rainbow Dash dressed in her Galloping Gala dress by Babylondonstar –
It is only 10 inches tall, but it sold for a whopping $2,275 USD on Ebay!!!!!!!! Don’t believe me? You can see the original listing here.
OMG! *.* And I thought Rilakkumas were expensive!!!!!!!
Anyway, so I forked out a large sum of money to Masha to custom make my OC MJ pony –
She’s a very pleasant Italian girl 🙂 here are some of her other works –
I think she did a great job with her ponies, and she charged a reasonable price… so I decided to go with her 😀 fingers crossed my pony will turn out beautiful! XD I asked for my pony to be about 16 inches by 18 inches, so she’ll be pretty big.
And I also decided to collect these cute chibi pony plushes made by babyponymagic/happybunny86 –
So I’m getting those 5 ponies! I love the design! They are SOOOOOOO CUTE and COLOURFUL!! XD
And here are more pics of other chibi ponies from babyponymagic/happybunny86
Anyway – gosh, I think my wallet requires hospitalisation now 😦 garrrrrgh, why are there so many cute things in the world?! >.<
