Silver Blossom - 2006

1st generation Fairy Tail hybrid pony
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Design & Custom by Aikarin

Silver Blossom started out as a G1 pony.  Wings were transplanted from a Fairy Tail bird.  Wires & mesh were inserted on her back.  Then, the wings were mounted on top with a bit of sticky epoxy clay. 

This "walking" pose is usually unstable, however, the wings add extra weight and she actually stands without a problem! ^_^

Thickly textured acrylic paint was layered at the base of the wings...a rather neat way to "hide" the joined areas.  Then, she received a full body repaint in pure white with a gentle matte finish..

Silver Blossom's eyes were hand-painted in a medium pink with black pupils & lashes.  She wears translucent pearly pink eyeshadow.  Her forehead is also covered with floral designs!

Her hair is pure, silky Saran hair, with a gentle curl at the ends.  It's a blend of two different pink colors (tickled pink and cotton candy) with thin, randomly dispersed strands of silver.  Her tail features the same colors.

Silver Blossom's fancy design stretches across her back, sides, and area underneath her neck seam.  It's a random pattern, hand-painted without guides or stencils, inspired by decorative patterns found in Medieval documents! ^_^

Overall, I'm happy with the way Silver Blossom turned out.  Her delicate color scheme is really sweet.  The silver areas are hard to capture with digital photography...she's even nicer in real life. ^_^

Here are some pictures before completion.




Silver Blossom is an original Aikarin design and she will NOT be repeated.  She is signed & dated under one hoof.  Unfortunately, the base pony was a little bit musty - even after a thorough scrubbing!  It's a minor problem since you can't smell her on a shelf. ^_^
She was treated twice with Febreeze, which helped to decrease the musty scent even more.
This pony is NOT FOR SALE.
