This is a special post for two special girls- a record of how their princess ponies came to be. Hi, girls!
The princesses started out looking very different from how they look today- they were pretty ponies, lovely ponies, but they looked just like thousands of other ponies in the world. That wouldn’t do for this special pair- they demanded that they be made unique, pretty, and sparkly before they went to their new homes. I helped with that. First I had to take off their old symbols and eyes (don’t worry, this didn’t hurt them- it was more like a relaxing spa day for them) and cut off their hair so that everything could be made special and new.
They looked just a little bit silly before they got their new hair, but I had to make sure their “cutie marks” (or bum symbols, if you prefer that) were just right. So we took a few pictures!
First the paint…
Then the JEWELS! The jewels are glues on very carefully, but they’ll always be more delicate than on a regular pony, so it’s best not to handle them roughly or get them wet at all. They both LOVED their new sparkles!
There were two things the princesses did NOT want pictures taken of: the hair going into their heads (with a needle- yikes!) or the way their hair looked before I washed it. It looked something like this:
How embarrassing! But I did wash it, and condition it to be silky smooth, and dry it. Then, the fun part- STYLING! First we twist the hair… tighter… tighter… until it loops around!
Then we pin it in place (never recommended for people, but very effective for ponies!)
And that’s the story of how Princess Sophia and Princess Isabelle were created. How they got to you is another story, one that involves a special someone who seems to love you quite a lot.
I think these ponies are happy with their new looks, and pleased to be princesses and sisters. Don’t you?
