I'm going to stick all of my My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic pictures here for easier access, especially since I get the feeling I'll be adding to this. Newest at the top, oldest at the bottom.

This post is IMAGE HEAVY, so keep that in mind if you've got a slow connection. You might be happier with the MLP:FIM tag at my regular gallery.

As always, the pony pattern is over here, and a bunch of how-to-crochet tutorials and such can be found over here. Thank you very much for your time!

Rainbow Dash. My crocheted pony lineup is now 20% cooler ;) Yes, I went there.

Rarity. Her hair was a pain in the butt to make, I will not deny it. Sadly, it's also not "perfect". I'm sorry for failing you, Rarity! I'll do better in the future!

Good ol' Fluttershy, my first crocheted pony :) I seriously need to re-do her mane.

Rainbow Dash, Rarity, and Fluttershy. Because Rainbow Dash is going overseas reasonably soon, and I wasn't sure when or if I'd be able to get another group shot in. So why not?

Dr. Whooves (or Dr. Whoof, if you prefer). He was fairly straightforward to crochet and put together. I was originally hoping to have him finished (and thus be able to hock him) for AnimeIowa, but that didn't happen. He's finished now, though! Now I just need to slap his picture/s up somewhere I can potentially sell him...

FFVII Ponies: The following pieces are largely based on this amazing piece of fanart. I've not been able to get in contact with the artist, so if you know them (or are them!), please point them here and let them know I'd like to talk to them about my having crocheted stuff based on their work? Contact made, and a million thanks to [deviantart.com profile] SolidPersona for pointing them to me!

Vincent!Pony, decked out in all of his glorious accessories :Dbb

Pictures of Vincent and his accessories separate can now be found here, to save bandwidth and loading time.

Standard PegaCid. I feel somewhat ethically weird about actually having made him a cigarette, as standard US anti-drug propaganda was pounded pretty thoroughly into my head at a young age, but it's accurate to the character so I went with it.

Pictures of Cid and his accessories separate can now be found here, to save on bandwidth and loading time.

Cloud pony! Oh man, his hair was a pain and a half. I ended up using both plain white glue (my standard 'hair spray') and, in the end, semi-tying it to his ears to help that spike stay up. I shoulda just gone with hot glue, but I guess it's a live-and-learn situation :/

The color combination turned out a lot better than I thought it would. Dunno why I doubted it; maybe it's just from having grown up with a red-green colorblind sibling. Kinda makes putting purple and blue together an automatic no-no for most situations.

Pictures of Cloud and his accessories separate can be found here, to save on bandwidth and loading time.

Clothed Sephy-kins! I went with very slightly different colors of yarn for his coat and mane/tail, because it made my teeth itch to think of them being the exact same color. I also think his mane and tail ended up a little long even for him, but whatever, they look fine.

Pictures of Sephiroth and his accessories separate can be found here, to save on bandwidth and loading time.

This one cracks me up for no good reason. Who thought Cloud could be so well balanced without his rear legs? Must be a center of gravity thing.

Three characters is also enough for a party! Time to go adventuring :Db

Shippy bonus ;) I tried to stick Cid's cigarette in Vincent's mouth for more implied kissing, but the stitches weren't cooperating and I was low on time. Maybe next time...

A NOTE ON ACCESSORIES: Due to the level of difficulty involved in attempting to explain how I made the various accessories work, I have no plans to share the patterns publicly, especially for free. I have other patterns I've been meaning to type up, not only for [personal profile] hooked_on_anime but also to sell at my Etsy account, and writing out exactly how I made various accessories takes a level of time and energy I'm not currently willing to commit. If you're still desperately interested in how I made one or two accessories, you can PM me and I may share it with you there. Otherwise, I encourage you to experiment on your own.

Lion King?

I just wanted to let you know that:

1. I love your patterns (particularly MLP)

2. If you were to make some Lion King patterns, say, for Simba and Nala, I would instantly become your biggest fan ever lol. :D

I just think it would be super cool. The Lion King is one of my favorite things next to MLP. I've thought about trying to make one up myself but I've never designed my own pattern before. (Plus I have four ponies in the works thanks to your awesome pattern lol)

Any chance you might have an idea of how to do a pinkie pie mane and tail?

Hey there! I'm the artist of the FFVII ponies, and let me say WOW these are incredible! I'm am just floored. I'm so flattered that my art could be the inspiration for something so awesome; you did an incredible job on all of these (Vincent's removable accessories are flat-out awesome?). Just. Man. I have the dopiest pleased grin on my face right now. These are great.

Sorry I'm hard to get ahold of!

Oh man, no, no, it's fine! I don't feel totally comfortable taking money for fanart stuff, anyway. And I mean, that someone liked my designs enough to want them is really cool on its own! If you wanted to crochet me something, I wouldn't say no, though. Man oh man, you do cool stuff. I'd be willing to team up if there was another character you wanted ponified? Zack, Turks, other games? I know I'd definitely want a Zack if you'd be up to it!

Oh wow, yeah, that is totally okay! Not having joint pain is usually a really nice thing!

What. Even was Barret's cutie mark, let's see. I think it was a rifle and a heart. Like that cupid-heart/arrow tattoo thing? But with guns. Because Barret.

FANDOM SECRET I covered Vincet with a flowy cloak so I wouldn't have to come up with a cutie mark for him, and I obfuscated Sephiroth's with his badass longcoat for similar reasons, whoops.

I may be kinda slow with getting a Zack out, though. I've got finals in two weeks, so my life is a hectic pile of research presentations and papers and also nonsense (now watch as I do it like tomorrow...)

I wanted to know if you had a pattern for the jacket and boots that you made for PegaCid. Thank you in advance for your help.

Thanks so much for acknowledging my help and linking my page, it was really kind of you. I was just happy to have the artist be in touch with you. I fell in love with your FF crocheted ponies so hopefully I will someday be able to make them. :)

I'm glad then. Once I buy the yarn for Cloud and Sephy, I would be happy to have the patterns. They look really good :)

hey, sorry it's been a while >3< I've just been busy and lately my time has freed up enough to finally do one of these ponies~ I don't have an account on here but would a email address be fine? If not then I can take some time to make the account.

Do you have the accessories up for the vincent and seph ponies? I know you had mentioned you planned to get them written up. Where might I find them? :) They would make the perfect Christmas gift for my husband! You can email me at mhenson@fishhoo.com and let me know? Thank you so much!! PS LOVE LOVE LOVE the pony pattern!

About that Lion King..?

From: [personal profile] crochetpeepi
Hi, your ponies are AWESOME!! But I was wondering, after seeing the (old) above comment about lion king patterns, if you had managed to produce any? I'm new to crochet and I'm itching to make a simba, but there are no patterns available online (at least I can't find any). I don't have the skill to produce a pattern myself as I still don't fully understand the mechanics of making specific shapes. I would be happy to pay for a pattern, if you have managed to come up with one of course :) if you haven't I would also be happy to commission a pattern if you have the time :)

My Rainbow Dash looks very similar to yours. Didn't see your picture of her until now and I'm proud of myself :3 I did Pinkie Pie already and the pattern was helpful still. Seeing your pictures of Rarity helps me figure out how to do her mane and tail. Thank you for your wisdom!! :D
