Monkey Island, but with PONIES!

Well, since I've already made Kirby versions of Guybrush, Elaine and Morgan, I could only think of one thing that could top that kind of crossover. A crossover with REAL BRUSHABLE HAIR! You know, like just about every single girl's toyline of the 1980s. Speaking of girl's toylines from the 80s, I recently got a load of vintage My Little Ponies (which were all in terrible condition just in case there's any angry collectors out there!) off eBay for me to experiment on, because I wanted to try my hand at customising My Little Ponies. You know, for science and junk.

Without further ado, meet Guinea Pony #1:

A pirate, eh? Well, that can be arranged... with some acetone, a scalpel and a scalping. Because the Three Trials are for PEOPLE, not ponies.

Oh, it's much too late for that Pony!Guybrush. Much, much too late...

Scrubbing, scalping and otherwise preparing the ponies for customisation takes a while, so you can amuse yourself by using the disembodied heads to freak out your flatmates. That's what I did anyway.

The teal pony head on the right may or may not be related to the Monkey Island/My Little Pony project. Or I might just put it in my flatmate's bed while he's asleep.

Next, sculpting!

I'm using Milliput epoxy putty to sculpt the outfit, unfortunately this means I have to do it in stages. I'm hoping to finish it tonight, so there should be more pics later.

    yeah i did notice the band on his backside, but i was thinking of how it might look on his mane aswell

  • thats bloody incredible. kudos to you. We got some mental fans on this boards (in a good way).

    I think because the mane is basically a line, grouping it all together in one ponytail wouldn't be that practical. Either a braid that follows the hairline or several ponytails would work best.
    This being said, the hair is nylon, therefore all smooth and less likely to be held into place by a hairband or by braiding.

  • Thanks for all the comments guys! I haven't started working on Pony!Elaine yet, beyond getting the base ready for sculpting, I'll post pics once I've actually done some work on her. In the meantime, I restyled Pony!Guybrush's mane because it was pretty chaotic. It's neater now, if girlier:

    Originally I wasn't going to put his mane in a ponytail, like Avistew said: his ponytail is his pony tail. However, now that his mane's straighter, I'm thinking I might put it in bunches or something, just to humiliate him even more. Thoughts?

  • You can try I guess, but I like the way it looks now.

  • Jen Kollics it's to let you know that your fans are awaiting the next work of art!!

    Atleast i consider myself a fan of your talent.

  • What's that you say? You want to see disturbing pony pictures? Well, okay then! Here's Elaine, in the very first stages of customisation:

    Right now she looks like she's wearing a bicycle helmet, (in addition to having her head wrapped in cling film, kids, don't do this at home!) but it's actually the first steps in making her bandanna. I want it to be removable, so the cling film is there to stop it sticking to her head. (it's easier to peel clingfilm off cured Milliput than it is to pry cured Milliput off a pony) The bandanna should be done tonight, hopefully.

  • Can't wait to see that.
    It's going to be adorable to see the two of them together ^_^

    Oh my!

    I love this forum.

  • OMG, how AWESOME is THAT? :D Can't wait to see the finished Elaine. <3
