Custom Princess Celestia by DeeKary Custom Princess Celestia by DeeKary
With the lack of white-ness in Celestia's toys and accuracy overall, I knew I had to do a show-accurate Celestia for my collection! And the one perfect for the task was the gift-set Celestia, which came with really short, hard plastic mane and tail. It was perfect because her size is the one that's closer to being "single" sized while being more accurate scale-wise when compared to the normal singles. And so my adventure began.

I am now proud to show the final product of this adventure: Meet the show-accurate, brushable Princess Celestia!

(here's a link to the original toy: [link])

The materials I had to use on her were:
-Sculpey (used the boling technique, worked great!)
-Dollyhair Mermaid, Lucky Clover, Amethyst and Mulberry Crush
-A couple of petals from a plastic flower (for the gems)
-LOTS of krazy glue
-paint, xacto knife, matte and glossy sealers, fine sand paper, and lotsa patience!!

Hope you all like! :D

Can I ask for some advice?

Since they released the Crystal Empire set with both Celestia and Luna, how do you recommend I fix their manes to be more like this?

Love it. I don't like he store bought Celestia and Luna they offered, but this is so nice, just like in the cartoon. How much do you think a replica would cost you to make?

Regular craft acrylics ^^ the key to an even surface is to slightly water the paint down to make it runnier and not leave brushstrokes :).

That'd be great... if she was actually white. Which she isn't. She's a very, very pale pink. Not white. /)_<

Uhh from what I've seen of her, she's white ._.

The ORIGINAL one is a very pale pink. .__.

And if you ARE talking about the new one, you should just be happy with it :/ Any brony would know by now it's going to take forever, possibly never for Hasbro to get it right and fill all your expectations. People never appreciate the work Hasbro puts into these things :/

I used regular craft acrylic paints :) the key is to do several thin layers at a time rather than one thick layer.

She look amazing! I'm thinking of making a Princess Luna from the gift set Celestia, but I was wondering, how hard was it to get her mane and tail off?

DeeKary Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
Well, it all depends on the luck you get with them xD. Some manes and tails will come off pretty easily and there will be no need to tug and pull with all your strength, but there will be others that will need you to take an exacto knife and cut whatever is glued lol. Anyway, my best bet is to give it to your boyfriend (which is what I do xD) or to any male person you may have at hand :D lol.
