I really like her jointed head aspect! I don't know how you get yours so even & flat, mine seem to end up floppy or hanging off the side of the neck. I'll figure it out someday, though! I also am admiring how you got her tail so neatly defined. Beautiful plushie!!
Hmmm, I will have to give those a try. I've been using the 35 and 55 mm plastic doll joints, and I've come to the conclusion they are either the wrong size or not strong enough for holding heads in place. They do work great for securing wings w/out stitches, though, and they let you move the wings around! Thank you very much for the advice!
I've been doing some Googling since I received your reply, and for some reason when I look up "lock nut joints," it looks like the kits are just a bolt & a nut, no disks. I find it hard to believe that a nut & bolt give the smooth look you have in your Scratch, so I must not be finding a complete set. I'll keep looking!
Interesting use of a hex nut; I would think a lock washer coupled with a lock nut would be easier, but then again I'm the one with floppy pony heads, so what do I know? Plushies are worlds apart from aircraft maintenance! Thank you so much for all your help, I much prefer my ponies to be interactive, not just stand there and look pretty.
Lovely. I like how your plushies have smaller irises. They look more unique and remind me of the recent season 2 and 3 look. Plus they seem to give the face more pep.
Plus the tail looks very sleek and I love the tight curve it makes. The horn has to be the best unicorn horn I've seen on a plush. And very interesting that she has a turnable head. Again a unique feature.
