Posable Needle Felted Rarity by SnowFox102 Posable Needle Felted Rarity by SnowFox102
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. :)

Why do I always only photograph one side what is this

How much rovin did this take? I'm interested in starting needle felting, but I'm not sure how much to buy. ^ u ^ ;
This Rarity is amazing, by the way, I can't believe how much detail is in her Cutie Mark and eyes~ It almost looks better than embroidery machine designs! >u<

Thanks! :D I'm not sure how much wool she took, but she only weighs about an ounce, so that tells you something. To just try needle felting, you don't need a huge amount. I recommend an ounce or so at least (fiber is sold by the ounce usually). You can find good starter kits that contain needles and fiber on Etsy and Living Felt.

Wow, that's really light for such a complicated creation. Thanks for the advice though~! ^ u ^ I've got some basic supplies, and now all I need is more wool. - u - ;

Oh man. Best pony, and one of the cutest needle felting projects I've ever seen! Definitely glad I stumbled across your Knockout pony and decided to go through your gallery, she's fantastic. (since her curls fell, she kind of reminds me of wet man Rarity, actually...)

Heh yeah I noticed the wet mane look too. Not my intention, but she does look nice that way too. I'm hoping to get better at styling Suri locks so hair styles will stay in better, but I'm also a little scared to. XD Thanks for the comments!

Wow, she's absolutely beautiful! Curls or no curls, her mane and tail are gorgeous. This must have involved some very delicate work - I'm in total awe of it!

very pretty and your hair down version looks better than the play ponies you can buy :)

Thanks! I actually did style her hair, but I took these pictures a couple of days after I did that and the curls fell out. I guess I didn't use enough heat. The hair I use for ponies (Suri alpaca locks) is so fine and soft and lovely that I tend to be scared to do too much styling. XD
