Finally! Took me a while to finish, but it's done! Here's my tutorial on how to make a custom Celestia like mine
. It covers from the very start, where I strip Celestia from her plastic mane and tail, to the end with grooming advice. It's a very lengthy process (and a lengthy read!), but I did my best to explain with detail each step. I also included a lot of pictures because I'm pretty sure it will be easier to understand with pictures, sometimes even more than with words hehe ^^. If any of you get to use any of my tips or tricks, or get to the task of making your own Celestia using this tutorial, please credit me and show me what you did! ^^.
Hope this helps everybody and answers your questions about my approach to this project
