In Case You Were Wondering

 

Do you sell Official My Little Pony Toys?

No I do not sell official Hasbro products in my store. For certain customers I do occasionally sell "bait" pony bins. (These are MLP toys that are damaged, old, or somehow defective.) Please inquire about how to join the list for Pony Bins by sending me a message.

How long does it take to make a custom pony?

Each pony varies depending on complexity and what materials I have on hand. One of the trickiest materials to obtain is the Nylon Hair for manes and tails. There are only a few suppliers and I can easily run out of stock. 

In general it can take 2 - 6 weeks to make a pony. If you need a pony by a certain date please order in advance if possible. I generally ship orders twice a month except for special requests.

 

What materials do you use?

I use a variety of materials for ponies. Acrylic paint, Epoxy Sculpt, nylon hair and fabric are generally what I use in a basic pony. I also find beads or fake gems add a nice touch. Modge Podge is used to seal paint and expoxy. (It also gives the pony a nice sheen coat.)

Why are these ponies so expensive?

These ponies are not toys, they are an art form. The time and effort it takes to make one requires me to boost the price. Compared to other artists, my ponies are fairly discounted. Many custom ponies can range from $10 to $200. 

Modesty's Custom Ponies does run sales and discounts from time to time. We also have a Loyalty program for interested customers.

 Are these ponies safe to play with?

Some custom ponies can be played with so long as the one playing with the pony doesn't like to stick things in his/her mouth. Some materials used to create the ponies are not safe for ingestion. That being said if you get a pony that is simply painted and sealed without any fragile sculpting, it is fine to play with. (Just be aware that like most toys, rough play can ruin them.)
