Winnie - 2006

Microsoft Windows Pony
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Designed by Angelika
Custom by Aikarin

Winnie is a very unique pony.  Her designer is a pony fan who actually works for Microsoft! ^_^  She asked her company for permission to have this pony created for her personal use.

Winnie is made from a 1st generation pony.  The gentle light blue base color is natural.

Winnie was re-rooted in four different colors of nylon hair: blue, bright green, orange-red blend, and golden yellow.  Since the base pony had an extra "stripe" in addition to the two rows of her mane, she's got a little extra reddish-orange stripe.  It's hidden under her mane. ^_^  Her tail features the same four colors.  I love how her bold colors came together!

 

Her symbols are based on the famous flag logo seen on Microsoft Windows software products.  The non-display side image was not reversed.  The symbols were very carefully painted by hand and sealed with a matte sealant.


[box pic respectfully removed due to legal concerns about MLP logo]
Here is Winnie in her box with a custom printed front panel.
The box is from a special G3 pony that came with a DVD.  
The brush is a G1 shooting star brush.
Winnie is a bit too large to fit comfortably in a regular G3 box!

Some Work-In-Progress pictures:

Here, we were deciding on which color of green to use for her hair.  Her designer originally selected Lucky Clover.  However, Key Lime seemed to match her eyes and symbols closer.

These pics show how I wired Winnie to her box.  First, I wrapped some plastic-covered wire around her feet.  They were anchored to a heavy piece of clear plastic.

Then, I taped this to the bottom of the box.  I hope she makes it through the shipping!

And here is a Photoshop rendering of the pony's design, before we got started on the project. ^_^

This is another version of the pony that we considered.  This one has a newer version of the Windows logo.  Her designer decided to leave out the hoof mark.

Winnie will be heading to her new home in Washington state.  She is signed and dated under one hoof.  She is an original design and she will NOT be repeated.  This pony is NOT FOR SALE.
