Rarity, made for my brother. <3 He helps me with a lot of stuff, including things related to felting. I bought 5 ounces of raw Suri fleece, and he washed the whole lot of it for me! Usually I pay him for those things, but he asked for a Rarity as payment for some work, so I was happy to oblige.
Needle felted wool over two-strand galvanized steel wire frame, with hand-dyed Suri alpaca locks for mane and tail. I had styled them, but the curls fell out and I didn't want to use hair spray. The details of her cutie mark are punch needle embroidered, my first finished project using that technique. I couldn't get the little facets to look right with felting.
