Pink Luna... by OtakuSquirrel Pink Luna... by OtakuSquirrel
Luna thinks it's unfair that Celestia always gets to be pink, so she's going to be pink also! Okay, maybe I should've used that joke back on my first WIP photo of this Luna sculpt...

Anyway! ...just a couple things new here with Luna-- First, I baked up her little forelock, which needs to be a separate piece so that her mane can actually fit on without needing to completely tweak her horn. Second, I finally got around to adding material to the end of her tail... Which makes this sculpt about 75% done-- it's just some shaping and lots and lots of smoothing/sanding that needs to be done now.

Not started yet is her crown. I'll get to it after I get the top of her mane finished up. I should also mention that one of my cats ate her Woona hat, so yeah, that's MIA and I'm not digging through to litter-box to find out if it's salvageable. o.O

A new Luna toy is being released right about now-- and it's the same mold as Cadance... And looks a lot more appropriate than the first Luna. =)

What!? How come I'm only hearing about this now!?

...am I the only one freaked out by Cadance's smile?

Out of curiosity, would the molds and the kit (when they're available) work for a Celestia doll? Not all of us have the TaoBao connections for a Cadance. :)

It's questionable if they would work well or not-- they would need to be modified to some extent at least. But since I don't anticipate having Luna's sculpt ready until much later, Cadence and Luna should both be released by that time... I would hope.

TaoBao is the only place you might be able to find her at this point... I got my Princess Cadence as part of a trade-- but the person I got her from got her from TaoBao.

Yeah, I wish I could say they had been released already, but they're not. It would've made sense to have them available at the same time the season finale was aired... But I don't think Hasbro has really caught up with everything just yet.

I hadn't really thought about using Cadence for Fluer... I guess I've just been too excited about having a proper sculpt for Luna.

featherpen13 Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Student Filmographer
Haha only because I wanted an extra SA for Fancy Pants. My brony friend, Jesse, wants a custom Fleur, so I told him if he got me Cadence and SA, I'd make him Fleur :meow: I'd have to saw off her pretty wings though...

My only question is why are there 2 Lunas? Since she only has 2 apperance changes (sans-NMM) : after transforming from NMM and when she comes back in season 2.

I started a sculpt for Luna using the new Celestia toy before I knew about the Cadence toy. When the new Cadence toy was announced, I pretty much decided to restart the sculpt with the new toy.

Hopefully. I still have to do more "research" on Celestia's hair to see if I want to recycle the old Luna sculpt or not.

First I order two Pinkie's, then I plan ahead for DJ, and then Luna pops up...how much more of my money do you want me to spend on you?! =P Seriously, this is looking brilliant. I love how you did the waves in her mane. But Luna might want to be careful with the pink look, people didn't take too kindly to it when Celestia tried it out XD

But pink suits her! Didn't you see the design of her from the Nightmare Night episode? You know, the one that was supposed to be used in the "Rarity gets to make her over" scene, but got cut...

I was freaking out when you said your cat ate the hat, but then I remembered that it was sculpey and not resin.

I really hope when the toys finally do come over here they are not another K-mart release. I still cannot find the wedding figures or that Trixie figure... and no way am I trusting the site to send me what I order.

OtakuSquirrel Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'm calling that whole FUBARed mess "Trixie-Gate". K-Mart has already sent almost everyone who tried to order Trixie and Lyra a refund. Whoever is running their website is doing a pretty poor job of it; I've heard nothing but bad stuff about them, including many many stories of them shipping the wrong items and such.
I think it's safe to say that we'll get the wedding waves in a few months... but let's face it, even the luggage ponies haven't gotten a proper distribution yet, so it might still be a while.

Well, technically the idea of having the office was supposed to solve this problem. The thing is that it's still more comfortable to sculpt out in the living room where it's more open and not nearly so cluttered.

A horrible misperception! Hasbro's crack team of expert marketing executives determined that a Pink Celestia would sell better than a show accurate White Celestia-- because you know, 5 year old girls have more disposable income than the teenage-to-mid thirties demographic...
LOL! Okay, I'm being silly there-- but in all honesty, it's silly how many *different* pink unicorns they've released so far. Someone over at Hasbro *really* likes pink.

She is, just for a long while the toys that hasbro made of her were pink, and not white. They're finally coming out with a white one, though. :lol:

That is an excellent mold! :#1:
I do wonder if that Luna will be an exclusive or just in a set based of Nightmare night though. :)
Anyway, seems the first Luna will be showing up in Europe in the future according to something i read. :D

:iconotakusquirrel:
OtakuSquirrel Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I hope she's not an exclusive. Nightmare Moon does seem like she might be though-- but as far as I know, no official announcement of Luna has been made-- just the photo of a prototype.
Do you remember what it was that you read and have a link to it?
