Lifesized Alicorn Twilight Sparkle Plushie by equinepalette Lifesized Alicorn Twilight Sparkle Plushie by equinepalette
Finally finished this pretty girl for BronyCon! A good 100 hours+ went into her start to finish. Made quite a few pattern adjustments, and I'm super happy with how she turned out!

She has been sold!


She'll be at my booth on display for at least day 1, so come early if you want to see her! Click here for more details and pricing on my other plushies I'll have for sale!



:bulletpink: Twilight is 40"(1m) tall from hoof to horn.
:bulletpurple: She is made from Lilac, Midnight Blue, Fuchsia, and Purple minky.
:bulletpink: She is stuffed with poly pellets, fiberfill, and quilt batting; and she has some closed cell foam for structural support.
:bulletpurple: Her eyes and cutie mark are machine embroidered with minky elements on her cutie mark, and cotton and satin elements in her eyes. 
:bulletpink: Her pattern is by equinepalette (me)
:bulletpurple: My artist mark is embroidered on her back right hoof. File by TheHarley.
:bulletpink: She does indeed stand on her own, but contains no rigid structures or wires so she is still super cuddly!
:bulletpurple: Special features include 3D eyelashes, semi-3D ears, and specially airbrushed eyes to create highlights and gradients.

Oh my goodness! 100+ hours into her, I can see how that kind of time would be needed.

You did a fine job with the design, it really looks like Twily herself, and given how big she is, that's even more impressive. I'm especially taken by the eyes. I don't think I've ever heard, let alone seen, when someone uses satin in a plushie before, but it really gives the smooth and shiny finish to them. It's one of those details that really make this piece stand out.

The most showlike life-size plushie I've seen. And that wonderful Twily face, too. Great job with all the detailing and keeping it all together as a coherent plushie.

Oh my goodness, she looks so cuddly. ;o; It's amazing that you could work on such a huge scale. All the attention to detail, especially her wings, look so amazing! A lot of people have a lot of issue making the details (especially the face) symmetrical, but you've really hit the nail on the head. All of those 100+ hours definitely shine through. ;v;

Wow! Absolutely wonderful work! The proportions all look great (something especially tricky to pull off with a plush this size) and you really nailed the facial features too. Simply beautiful. :)

I've got to say this has to be by far the best of your frontal works. Usually if a plushie looks good from the side it is slightly weird from the front but she looks wonderful from both angles here. Whoever gets/got to own her will definetly have a lot of fun with her.

This plushie is absolutely wonderful. The expression and pose work together amazingly well: she looks so eager and happy, perhaps even channeling Pinkie Pie and Rainbows Dash as she looks ready to pounce into the fun at any instant. It works from every angle. The big gorgeous eyes are almost hypnotizing, and the super-size cutie mark was a great choice to make it really pop, like fireworks for the mind. Overall she gives off both a zippy and cuddly feeling at the same time, probably the best friend and playmate any child (of any age) could have. No doubt she'll be going home with a very lucky person.

Nice work!I did not thought about foam as a support when I did mine lifesize plush. The shape of her head is perfect in this size!
But there is one thing I do think which looks strange. Her back looks a bit like if she is ducking (cowering?? )  especially in both center pictures

Yeah--the stretch affected my pattern slightly so that the muzzle ended up angling down a bit. It's adjusted for the next one.
