Ahiru ("Duck") from the anime Princess Tutu as a custom My Little Pony. She was pearlized, re-rooted with pink hair, and then painted with the symbols of a duck and ballet slippers. She was also given blue eyes and her magical red necklace.
I saw this picture on another Princess Tutu fansite and I nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw it here! I love it soo much, I am a long time fan of my little ponies, and a new one of Princess tutu. Perfect combo! Cute cute cute! 10/10~
Thank you very much! I actually made this for my best friend's Tutu site (and as a b-day present for her), and as far as I know that's the only other place it's posted, so I'm wondering if it was Zapenstap's site, [link]
Ah! Yes! How strange! I found that site a little ways ago! I thought it was great. I'd love to do some fan art too! (though it would not be as good ^_^;...) I actually have one Tutu pic in my deviations, though one of her feet is all messed up. o_o;
Anyway, yes! That is it! It's actually in my favorites. The internet is a small small place after all.
It is a small world indeed! I showed my friend your Ahiru picture and she thought it was very cute (as do I!) and said she would love to put it up on her site, if you wanted to submit it. She's been looking for fanart for a while.
Whoa, way late reply! Thank you so much, first of all!
Second, the re-rooting is done very tediously. First you have to get hair, whether pulled from the inside of a MLP's head or loose in skeins. Then you get a double length of about ten or so hairs (sometimes more if one hole is really large, or fewer if it is a really small hole), tie it in a knot (double knot if you wish) in the middle. What I do next is take a pretty thin but small wire about ten inches long and fold it in half, crimp it to a point with a needle nose pliars, and work it through the topmost hole on the outside of the pony head. Then, when it comes out the neck, I open the wire up to a bit of a loop and pull the hair through, doubled over so the knot is on one end and the loose ends on the other. Then you pull the wire back through, much like threading a needle with a needle threader. Repeat 20-100 times, depending on the number of holes in the head, then glue the inside with fabric or even elmers so the plugs don't loosen, and you're done. The tail works in a similar way, only as one gigantic hair plug.
Wow, that was confusing. There are some great tutorials out ther, which is how I learned, then developed my own technique on my own. A quick Google search will give you good results, but I recommend Dizzy Dava's.
