Another birthday today for me haha ~ this time 2 gorgeous ponies arrived! Both from the US :3 I’ll feature them one by one, starting with crystal pony Applejack by the amazing and super nice GreenTeaPlushies!
Anyway, GreenTeaPlushies went to the extra trouble to ensure crystal pony Applejack experienced a first-class journey to New Zealand. Indeed, Applejack was packed carefully in a clean and clear bag (perfect size for her, so no squishing) and embedded in a bed of foam/packing peanuts inside a sturdy and spacious cardboard box. The commission process with GreenTeaPlushies was a piece of cake – but this takes the icing on the cake! (Sometimes it upsets/worries me when my dear pony plushies arrive without any stuffing/plastic wrapping in tattered, wet boxes :<).
And here are the pics!!!
This crystal pony Applejack was like a mini supermodel, she photographed extremely easily! I ❤ photogenic ponies!!!!!!
Now onto some specifics, crystal pony Applejack stands approximately 16″ tall and is made entirely of cuddly “touch me all day, every day” minky. The details are machine embroidered and are precise and clean with no loose thread/thread loops. Stuffing wise, she’s stuffed uniformly and “just right” – so she’s able to maintain her cuddliness without any unsightly lumps/bumps/wrinkles!
GreenTeaPlushies pays extra attention to show accuracy, and that could be one reason why she’s so popular, and why when her commissions do open – you should swim as fast as you can to higher grounds because expect a tsunami of competition! The show accuracy of her pony proportions are amazing (look at those beautifully slender long legs! and those hips! and that nicely rounded rump!) :3
Her workmanship is so meticulous, precise and clean. I also LOVE how she translated crystal pony Applejack’s braids – they are just perfect!
There are just a few loose threads here and there, which just require a bit of snipping (can be easily done), and the threads she use are actually the same colour as the minky fabric they’re sewn into (yay!), so they aren’t very obvious at all.
I also love how GreenTeaPlushies posts WIP pics on her tumblr page and how fast and efficient she works/ships! And she’s such an amazing and pleasant lady to work with! I am so honoured to own at least one of her plushies, and I can’t wait for when she opens commissions again, because I’d LOVE to try and commission another one (or two, or three, or four haha…) from her!!!! 😀
