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.

    Well, as long as I can still creep out my flatmate with Charlie the Unicorn references, I guess I don't have to post them here...

    My Little Elaine will be next up, I'll most likely start working on her this coming week.

    He looks fantastic Jen, the earrings are a beautiful touch!

    I like the WIP photos too (even though they're kinda creepy), it's cool to see how everything comes together.
  • Absolutely amazing. I love how it ended up. I totally missed the My Little Pony era due to excessive Lego collecting, but if Pony-Brush had been available, I would have totally bought one. Or at least nagged my parents into getting one for me.:D

    100 Gold Stars!
  • I just wanted to pay my respect by posting here and say I'm really impressed with your Pony Guybrush. :)

    No, his pony tail is his ponytail, didn't you notice the hairband on his behind?
