Princess Luna Posable Needle Felted Plush by SnowFox102 Princess Luna Posable Needle Felted Plush by SnowFox102
I'm not really happy with these pictures, but Luna is kind of hard to photograph. She looks more purple in pictures. :/

I'm pretty pleased with the doll over all. She poses nicely, thanks to her wire armature and notches cut in the core wool where her joints would be. You can't see the notches because of the dress fiber, but they help her legs pose.

Needle felted wool over a two strand galvanized steel wire armature. Dress fiber is hand dyed 50/50 superfine merino and Suri alpaca for the coat, and superfine merino for the cutie mark, eyes, shoes, necklace, and crown. Her hair is hand dyed Suri alpaca with angelina fibers mixed in. Her hair is firmly rooted, though not quite as firmly as usual because the locks weren't long enough to fold in half. It's still brushable, but I held it near the doll to make sure I didn't pull any out when combing. I lost my ruler (again), but she stands around 7 1/2" tall at the tips of her ears, and towers over the G4 Fluttershy in the last pic.

This was a commission, so she's not for sale.

Eye vectors provided by ~theNaro and vector for proportion and color reference provided by ~Durpy.

EDIT: Ok obviously I should neither photograph nor edit photos when I'm tired. One of the panels is overlapping another. :slow: I'm too tired to fix it right now, I'll fix it tomorrow. XD Also, I did fix the bit of fuzz on the end of her wing. I probably caught the end of the wing with the brush when I was combing her hair. It's fixed now though. :)

EDIT 2: Fixed the overlapping panel, but the upper right is still a WIP image from before her extra hair and forelock were added. >.> I didn't realize that until after I had shipped her. XD

I'm so sad someone has beaten me to making a Luna needle felt, but I can't be that sad because this is so lovely :) She looks so good and you've got the proportions spot on. I also like that she's posable, very clever.
I'd never thought about putting wire in the wings before but I think I will give it a go so they can be posed like this. Great work!

I'm glad you like her. XD Honestly needle felting is a simple craft. It's like sculpting with clay, but even simpler than that since it doesn't take a lot of tools. If you want to know where to start, I made a journal about it. There are some tutorial links near the bottom, but it's kind of one of those things you learn by doing. :)

I actually made an OC gen4 pony I'm calling Gaia today, but I still don't have the hang of wire frames or the patience to make firmer ones, so she squishes, but somehow still stands. I have no idea how that happened ^^;

SnowFox102 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
It sounds like maybe you didn't push the needle deep enough, so you ended up leaving the fiber in the middle softer than the surface. That squishability is what happens when a piece isn't felted all the way through. Not necessarily a bad thing, though. :D

AAAAH! This is awesome! You did such a great job on her:D!!! That's interesting about the notches, because I was kind of wondering how you get them to pose so well, though I don't think I'll be attempting that:p Sounds like too much work doing an armature! I always seem to notice little tufts of fuzz after photographing my felts that I didn't notice until the picture was taken. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

At first I just felted her legs with a crown needle so the inner layers of wool were soft, that would also have given her a lot of posing ability. But since the dress fiber I used required some extra work to felt down, I switched methods so I wouldn't have to worry about over-felting. Posing ability is kind of my "thing", I really enjoy making figures really flexible, so I'm willing to put in a little extra effort to make it more interesting. :D
