Custom Princess Luna by DeeKary Custom Princess Luna by DeeKary
Finally after a while, here's the custom I've been asked about very often and was so eager to get to do: Princess Luna on a Celestia base!! :dance:

Felt very nice to go from white and pastel colors to dark blues and only one hair tone hehe ^^. It was quite a challenge too because I had to look for a container for the mixed paint I used for the body in case anything happened. That color took a lot of paint and testing to get right x_x since Luna isn't completely blue nor purple. Since I wasn't convinced with the hair available either (not as blueish or purpleish) I decided to go with a 2-color mix: Dollyhair's Water Hyacinth. It's a lovely hair that doesn't look too purple or too blue, so it's perfect! ^^. The hair also posed a challenge for the hair that goes to the front, which had to be rehaired going to the opposite side to the rest of the hair that would go on the back. In the end, a lovely, older Luna (hence the longer hair) came out.

Hope you all like her! :D

Tl;dr:
- Original toy base: [link]
- Rehaired by hand with a 2 color mix nylon hair from Dollyhair (Water Hyacinth) because there was no solid color that convinced me to use.
- Full body repaint and sealed with matte and glossy sealants
- I am aware she's smaller and younger, but this is an older version of Luna.
- If my commissioner is happy with this result, I'm happy ;) .

Edit: Uploaded a better photoshoot! Got some very good critiques for these pictures (thanks to :iconponiesplus: ^^) so I took a new set of pictures of Luna on a better background and now her details can be appreciated more than before :).

This is absolutely gorgeous. I would love a custom Luna of this ilk but I am so new to customisation, it may take me a while before I am at this level!
Her eyes are so smooth and show-accurate.

can someone answer me. :) i am debating on buying the original Hasbro Luna or just buying a Celestia and customizing her into a Luna. Hasbro Luna is less hassle but doesnt really resemble Luna as much as I love her. Also, as far as I can tell she is only available in the states and I can't find her in my country at all, with the small selection of ponies we already have available. Customizing a Luna may take a little more work, but if I can get it to look like this Luna at all I will be extremely happy. What should I do? I'd have to get Hasbro Luna off of ebay or go to the states

why not get the original luna (if you can find her) and customize her to look more accurate? :> (honestly, I'd want both an unedited Luna and a customized one xD)

i seem to have a lot of difficulty finding Luna anywhere. so what i did was got a talking Celestia and customized her into luna, then cut off her hair and sculpted it into Luna's Season 2 hair and glued it on ^^

oh wow xD I'm making a custom alicorn and earth pony (my first customs, actually) I just finished dehairing Rarity, and I need to go get a bait Fluttershy now (which I'm about to do..and replace my poor Rarity ;_; ) I'm gonna rehair them as soon as I can afford all of the colors I need xD
Do you have pictures of your Luna? :>

oh cool, thank you! :D I'm at my dad's house right now (I'm surprised I managed to log on, actually) and I took apart poor Fluttershy last night...:( I did so well with Rarity, but the knife went straight through Fluttershy! D: Luckily I know how to disguise it...I'm still disappointed, though. I can't wait to paint and rehair them! :>

did you use the celestia that comes in the set with the other ponies? i was wondering if you have a spike and pinkie pie that maybe you would like to sell :O

Thanks! :) and yep, I used that set, but the thing is that this and the other commissions that need for me to get the set are actually buying the set in the price I give them, so they get the whole set along with the custom pony ^^ so I don't keep any of the figures, sorry ^^; .

to bad Fluttershy has the same proportions as the other ponies she would be a good base for younger Luna...

That said i'm kinda surprised with all the customs there are no makerbot bronies.
