Freedom Star  - 2005
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Design by Carol
Custom by Aikarin

Freedom Star is a very unique pony.  She was designed by a non-pony collector as a gift for someone finishing her Air Force Basic Training.  Freedom Star is made from a 3rd generation pony whose base color is white.  This pony is NOT FOR SALE.

Freedom Star's hair is made of red, white, and blue Kanekalon hair.  The hair was carefully straightened before re-rooting.  She also has corresponding red/clear iridescent/blue tinsel.  Her tail features the same colors.  The initials on her non-display side hoof are those of the lucky recipient's. ^_^

Her eyes have thin red/white/blue colored stripes and she has a tiny white star in each eye.  The lashes are midnight blue.

  
She has a rank insignia marking her magnet hoof and a waving American flag on her display side.  All of her markings are delicately hand-painted with artist-grade acrylics.

[box pic removed for legal reasons]
She was given a box with a custom-printed front label, personalized with her name. ^_^  The back section of the box was removed, so you can see her non-display side symbols.  Her accessory is a white brush.

[above] Her non-display side symbol is the Air Force logo in white & blue.  It's also carefully hand-painted.

 

 Below are some pictures before completion:

Here is the concept sketch that I made, based on Carol's ideas.  This version has tinsel in her hair.

This particular pony does not "really" exist.

Close-up of the tinsel in blue, clear iridescent, and red.
And a rendering of her non-display side.  I must admit...the symbol looks pretty complicated. ^_^
After re-rooting and eye-painting.  Mmmmm...her hair is very soft & pretty. ^_^
After painting the display side only.  I'm glad we decided on a waving flag...it really gives her a lot of character.  The shadows/highlights weren't easy, though!  Yes, this is the "real pony".  Yes, the symbols are hand-painted!

Freedom Star is an original creation that will not be replicated.  She is signed & dated under one hoof.
She is NOT FOR SALE.
