Enchanted Paradise
the annual aikarin.com custom design competition!

 Enchanted Paradise Award
Sea Snake's Enchanted Evening

"Wow!" was our first reaction to this stunning design.  Simple, yet magical, we thought this design would make a lovely pony in real-life.
  Seems that people who voted in the People's Choice Award liked her as well...she was also one of the finalists!

This design was selected by Aikarin & her friends.  She will be made into a real custom pony by Aikarin & shipped to her new home. ^_^

When she is completed, pictures will be posted in the Custom Gallery.

Here are some comments that people made about Enchanted Evening:

"Very beautiful!"
"I thought the gradient on Enchanted Evening would translate better to a real pony, very elegant, very pretty"
"So magical!  I want a pony just like that one."

Base Pony: Daisyjo (purple)
Description: Enchanted Evening is purple with black points on her legs, nose and ears. Her mane and ta
il are dark blue, light purple and pink streaked mane. Her eyes are the same dark blue as her main with touch of aqua in them. Her symbol is that of a magic wand over two aqua swooshes (representing water) with small dots of white and pale yellow sprinkling out from the wand (representing stars).
Story: Enchanted Evening is a pony who enjoys making people's wishes come true. With a wave of her wand, she can make the night become a magical time of fun and reverie for all the ponies and their friends. From the shadows she watches them before laughing merrily and slipping off to spread her magic.

 Most Innovative in Paradise Award
Miru's Storybook

This beautiful pony features darker "color points" with words in them.  This is the first time we've ever seen a design like this!  The book & red rose go well with her dark brown hair.  Overall, a very unique pony with artistic flair!

This design was also selected by Aikarin & her friends.  It was a hard decision, because there were so many unique entries!   This design is something "different", yet beautiful.  The winner will receive a randomly selected pony in minty condition.  Congratulations Miru!

 

Base Pony: Bow Tie (white)
Description: Storybook is a white pony with brown words around a shaded portion of her muzzle and legs. Her mane tail and eyes are all a dark reddish brown, though her eyes have blackened pupils and grey around the lining. Storybook's symbol is an open book with a rose and pen next to it. The rose crosses over the front of the book whereas the pen hides behind the far side. Her magnet hoof is marked with a deep red heart.
Story: Storybook loves smaller things. Whereas the other ponies go to the islands or resort to be in heaven, storybook reads or watches the grass in the wind. Out of the books she reads, Storybook's favorite genre is the faerie tale. She just loves the thoughts of adventure and true love! Small things fascinate and thrill her, bringing happiness at every turn. Because of this she's often thought to be ditzy or distractible, but she doesn't mind. She'll just keep loving what she loves and popping up as she must.
