Merry-Go-Round Sugarberry by Woosie Merry-Go-Round Sugarberry by Woosie
After doing the G3 Merry-Go-Round version of the old 80's MLP Moondancer (see her in my gallery) I wanted to make some more G3 MGR versions of old ponies. I got a free skein of hair in the mail from a doll hair seller and it was a perfect match for the 80's pony Twice As Fancy Sugarberry so I decided to run with that idea. The pony in the bottom pic with the custom is the original 80's version.

MGR Sugarberry was originally a G3 My Little Pony named Periwinkle. I rerooted her mane and tail with nylon hair in a bright shade of reddish pink and then sculpted a saddle and neck pieces on her with Apoxie Clay. The saddle and eyes were then painted in acrylics and sealed.

This pony will be sold on eBay, the auction will go up on the evening Dec. 26th so if your interested please keep an eye on my journal here as I'll be posting a new entry when I list her.

My gosh, I used to have a Sugarberry! Where has it gone? T__T
JesterSeven Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2008
Nice job on the new version! I always liked the carrousel style. I still have my Sugarberry (never new what her name was) in storage with the handful of ponies I hung onto. There are a couple I wish I still had though.

XD We use to have that pony! The older one, I used to play with that all day, till my brother choped its hair off. Nice work on the re-vamped one, I love how it looks.

This is beautiful! I have the original version, but this one is so much prettier. I love the detailing on the side of the head, and the closeups show how flawless this work really is. Beautiful!

This is my favorite of your MLPs. I love her hair. It's very classic, like a 20's model.

onnawufei Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2006
There's something about her that makes me think of the old time starlets that were all glamour and attitude. She's gorgeous!
Woosie Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2006  Professional Artisan Crafter
I think it's the hair myself, and the pose, lol. After I was done with her I was like, "it's a red headed Dita Von Teese!" lol, since the hair looks like those old pin up pics.

OOOOOOO!! WOW!!! Amazing!!!
drazzi Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is a beautiful custom. I love the way you sculpt carasol-esque ponies - I think the little bits on the neck really make them unique and a joy to look at. You're very talented at sculpting - and you must have a steady hand when painting them.

She's a beautiful modernised version of Sugarberry. Well done!
HtFShiku Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2006

All your ponies are so amazing! How on EARTH do you work your magic with the clay?! Its always so insanely good! Your ponies are all so beautiful, and I quite like this work in particular. You did such an awesome job of making it the same ponie, but with a new attitude, and perkier features. ^^ Great work! I love seeing all your new ponies come out.
