Alrighty...she's been the mail for a while now so I hope my partner has her or gets her soon...

She was one of those jewel butt ponies...I popped out the jewel and apoxied it. Sanded it smooth and painted a symbol over top...

She is rehaired with chocolate fudge and esspresso. I did a mix of the two colours for a little accent and to make it have a little contrast in pictures.

Her eyes and symbol are both painted with artist acrylics and sealed with gloss. I have a reference pic in my pictures so that you can see my inspiration. I made the necklace to resemble her necklace worn with the outift Inara wears in serenity. She is wearing a dress I sewed by hand. It was a time consuming thing. I made a pattern out of paper and designed the dress accordingly.

Enough of my long winded explanation here are some pictures. Wink

Super nicely done! I like the 3-d symbol and the dress is right on the mark.

Lovely! The pattern on the dress is very well chosen! Her hair, her pose, all very elegant.

I know I already told you on FB, but I LOVE this pony. You totally captured Inara. The hair and eyes are so lovely. The symbol is just gorgeous, I love that it is 3-D and high gloss (makes it really stand out). The dress is just to die for. I really can't say enough about this one...GREAT JOB!

P.S. I just scrolled up to look at the pics again and noticed the adorable little necklace. So cute!

I posted in the Serenity/Firefly swap thread that she arrived earlier this week. She is sooo beautiful! I love her to death! Now if I end up with some money again I'm gonna have to commission you to do a Mal pony for me to go with her!

I am not familiar with Firefly/Serenity stuff, but she is gorgeous! I love her beautiful curls and that outfit is amazing. Her symbol is so well executed and very unique

I was totally torn between trying Mal or doing Inara...I really loved this red material and though hmmmmm...doesn't Inara wear a red dress in Serenity. I found a few screen caps and went for the red dress. I tried to get all the details but you can see for sure that the dress comes off and the transparent elastic just holds the front of the dress together. The other part is held by eleastic as well around the star beads as buttons.

I curled her tail like that so the dress would lay flatter...past her bum. Smile
The ribbon it's tied with was called Firefly so I had to use it. I was looking for the gold colour satin for the top and found gold firefly so it had to be.

I didn't make earrings since they'd have to be so delicate to look right and my jewellery making skills are best kept to the simple...LOL

Sooooo Glad you have her an like her. I was afraid you wouldn't like her.

About her symbol I thought it was very fitting since Inara is seen painting it on the side of the ship... Smile It's actually flat but very textured to look 3-D.

thanks for all the kind comments everybody!

Oh wow Nic, she is stunning! I'm not at all familiar with Firefly/Serenity, but she is gorgeous! You did an amazing job on her. That dress is so pretty, and your symbol is just wow. I really love the hair blend. The subtle color blend is really elegant, especially with the way you styled it. Beautiful work!
