So it felt like my birthday today – or even Christmas haha, because I received 3 ponies today! I’ll do the reveal on Applejack and Rainbow Dash from PulsefireKitten first (because the last one is truly very special ;)).
I’ve been waiting for these two ponies for about 2 months now! And PulsefireKitten had actually completed them a long time ago (mid-June) but she was experiencing some issues so there was an extended delay in shipping them out to me. I waited for several weeks and still no sign of them, and at this stage, I was becoming extremely worried! I was so afraid that my two precious ponies have gotten lost/missing/stolen?!
Luckily, they were both eventually located (sent back to PulsefireKitten) and were both safe! The delay was annoying, but what was most important to me was that they were both safe!!!! So I was very relieved! It appears that they were somehow sent to the wrong place? or there was some sorta mix-up? I’m not 100% sure, but that doesn’t matter anymore – because they are both here now! At their new forever home! 😀
I’ll feature Applejack first :3 I have a soft spot for her! (Rainbow Dash is pretty with all those colours, but she can be a bit of an asshole sometimes :|)
So in summary – I ❤ this Applejack plushie! She's so very cute! I love the fact that her hat has magnets inserted so I can easily put it on/take it off, it's so ingenious! And I love the high quality buttery soft minky – I could stroke her ALL DAY! She stands approximately 14" tall and has poly pellets in her hooves to keep her sturdy. Details are machine embroidered. I'll point out a few more things later, but first – I'll show you my Rainbow Dash plushie (she's getting very impatient)!
In summary – this Rainbow Dash plushie is extremely adorable and I ❤ her too! PulsefireKitten gave me a choice of a darker vs lighter shade of blue for the colour of her body coat, and I went with the lighter shade. This might be why she used lighter shades for her mane/tail (I would've liked some of the colours in her mane/tail esp the orange to be brighter/darker in colour). Like Applejack, she stands about 14" tall and is made from luxuriously buttery soft "I want to touch you all day" minky. Her details are machine embroidered and she also has poly pellets in her hooves to help her stand tall and proud!
A few things I'd like to point out about PulsefireKitten's ponies (now that I've collected so many pony plushies from so many different artists), the embroidery is slightly messy and there are quite a few loose threads poking out at odd places. Sometimes, the colour of the threads used contrast with the colour of the minky it's sewn into (making them very obvious!) – so for example, I've been trying to cut off this annoying stubborn little red thread embedded into Applejack's light blonde forelock (I really need to get myself thread cutters! My scissors are all too fat).
Nevertheless, I still adore Pulsefirekitten's plushies and she does a great job overall. I ❤ her style – her ponies tend to have the bigger head/smaller body look (anime style/super kawaii!). She works very fast (though shipping can take a while :<), and she charges a very reasonable price for her ponies (her prices are on the lower-end considering the great quality she delivers).
I am still waiting on a Rarity plushie (wearing pink and white striped scarf and socks) from PulsefireKitten :3 (I would have 4 ponies from her!). Looking forward to seeing her 😀
And I decided to do some reunion pics of my ponies from PulsefireKitten:
