MLP Nightmare Moon Finished

 I have finally finished this one.  I am not happy with the eyes at all.  I made a templet to use to sponge the paint on and that worked well, its just painting on black is not easy or forgiving.  Unlike the last pony I did, this one had different eyes more almond shaped with a slit pupil. 
I had done a crochet version of the helmet but it was just way to bulky so I decided the helmet, cutie mark, and necklace would all have to be done in felt. 
Doing it that way makes it so the helmet and necklace are both removable.
Since I could not find a pattern for this pony I mashed up bits from the Apple Jack I did and free handed the rest.  I really like how the wings came out but you cant see that from the photos it is so hard to get a good photo of black yarn.  
I am hoping my niece loves it, as her birthday party is next weekend.

WIP -- What a Nightmare

So as requested by my niece for her birthday I am making yet an other MLP.  This one is called Princess Nighatmare Moon  and I was not able to find a pattern for her 'nightmare' version so I am just making it up as I go.

I know I still need to make the wings, main, tail, neckless, and  a horn.  After that I need to figure out how I want to make her 'cutie' mark wich is on both sides of her hind end as a purple cloud and crescent moon.   I want to do it in felt as that will be far easier then trying to crochet and sew as I would have to sew threw a lot of layers (pony/leg/cloud/moon) and I think it would also look more bulky then if I felt it.  So now I just have to see if I have the felt in the colors I need (or buy them if I dont).

This is currently what I am procrastinating doing, what might you be procrastinating?
