You don't have to wait! :) I'm also 10 and I'm planning on doing this. I would just ask an adult for help, though!

On an unrelated note, here's a website where you can buy pony hair and other things: dollyhair.com

Small question. I have unheaded my pony, but I can't get the plug out. *cut myself trice already now* It is, however, one of those new chrystal ponies, and the plug seems different from the one you have there. The color is at least. Do you know something that might work?

The Fluttershy I used was an obvious imposter (it's a cheap version for Easter or something, worse hair and unaccurate eyes, good for customs!)

Either I have a cruddy exactly knife, or this is really hard for me. I've done it like six times, seriously gashed myself twice (still got a scar on my thumb) and I can't get a smooth cut.
How do you do it? You make it look so easy.

I have a Celestia doll I want to customize to make it look.. more Celestia-like. But I'm scared to do it. XD
Can I use a plastic knife to get the peg out? I don't own any eXacto or whatever it is and I don't want to use a metal knife.

You know, in Ye Olden Dayes "bait" meant something that is either a). in poor condition, or b). G3. Back then, most others were repaired, or left as-is.

Yes, I do, I have collected MLP since around 2000. And I've been active in the comm too. As it goes though, the easiest and most suitable for baiting seems to be the current line- Hasbro can make more, but even G3s are no longer replenished, they now have a set, dwindling number.

Um... I can't think of anything else. Seek an adult's help if you are incapable? You need something that can cut the plastic.

These tutorials are so helpful! Thanks! :la:

I do have a question though: Are you supposed to glue the plug back in once you've finished painting/re-hairing the pony? Or do you just glue the head on so it can't move?
Reply
:iconcustomanon:
CustomAnon Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
I put the plug into the pony's head, then put my super glue around the inside lip of the neck, and push the head and the plug into the body. Hope that helps!

Do you know if there's anything you can do if the peg breaks when you're trying to take the head off? I've beheaded three ponies so far, and the third one's peg broke in half >.>

The only thing I can't do for a custom is re-hair... I don't have anything to use. I really just need to get the money to commission one... Plus I don't think I can behead Fluttershy... She (or Dash) are the ones I'd need to decapitate to make my Ponysona.

I beheaded one of my Fluttershys just a little while ago -- it's much easier if you soak the pony in hot water for a few minutes before to soften up the plastic. (and it's easier to paste the peg back onto the pony later)

Well, it's hard and I'd feel horrible xD

I also don't really have any hair for her :/

True, true. x3 (luckily, I have another upstairs that I don't plan to mutilate xD)

I don't have any hair for mine either.
AC Moore or Michael's probably has doll hair, though.
