From left to right and top to bottom the collection consists of the following:
  • Rarity by *Nazegoreng
  • Tiny Rarity by *FollyLolly
  • Monster High Spectra with sewing accessories
  • Rarity Poster from Everfree NW 2012 signed by Tabitha St. Germain

This is so cool, I love seeing multiple artist's work together!  So interesting to see all the differences and similarities.  Looking at collections I've been thinking I need to make a larger size for mine too, think they're probably on the smaller end of artist plushes compared to everyone else, makes me feel a bit inadequate :p  Well especially compared to Nazegoreng's xP

 A fine collection you have so far, worthy of this lovely pony.  Dat poster.

How tall are yours?

And yeah, Naze's ponies are huge!  I wouldn't worry if yours aren't as big as her's are :P  I know SpaceVoyager is actually making her pattern a little smaller now.  I think the size variety is nice!

Mine are a spare 13" hoof to head.  I think they also tend to be more slender than  many other artists though, so it seems smaller.  I was thinking an additional pattern that's 15-16", just for personal variety.  Hmmm.

lol yeah, I don't need to make them a lot bigger, though I've wanted to try out a large pony at some point too, maybe double size.

Mine are about that size too, maybe 14 inches, but not much bigger!  I don't have one with my latest pattern here with me to actually measure, so I'm looking at one of my older ones.  I want to make a smaller pattern, as I mentioned.  I also want to make my princess patterns larger than they were to be actually in scale and a smaller filly pattern for the same reason.

I've actually really wanted to try making a "life sized" pony, but I have no idea where I'd put it and I'm certainly not going to make one to try and sell.  Shipping that would be a nightmare!  Plus I think it would be really difficult to get what it was worth.  Maybe I should make a "life sized" filly. That would be a lot smaller :p

Well that little bit can make a difference!  Mine are only 13" because I tweaked the pattern so many times making their legs and necks longer :P

Smaller is always cuter, it's just too bad how much harder it makes it to sew.  Was thinking.. if I think if I wanted tiny ponies for myself I'd just do away with all the extraneous darts and sharp curves, lol.  I kinda wish I had made my first ponies bigger so the fillies would be easier to sew now.  But it'd be nice to make the princesses bigger, I think, I like to keep them in scale too :)

How big is lifesize now?  I always picture the ponies as like a medium size dog, maybe because their heads are so big and it'd be weird to see a big pony in real life like that o_o  In any case lifesize filles sounds like a great idea :D

I think my ponies are fatter than yours too which, as you said, can make them feel much larger without actually having them much taller.

Yeah there are so many fiddly little parts when they get tiny.  Also even though they are super cute when they are tiny, they aren't nearly as nice to hug!

While there isn't a hard set size for "life sized" I think he general consensus from the few different things I've looked at is that they are around three and a half feet tall excluding horns or crazy big hair.  Fillies, then would be a little more than two feet tall, which is probably a more reasonable size of plushie to make!  Maybe I can make a life sized filly Rarity!  Because obviously if I'm making it for myself it has to be Rarity :P   I wish there were some way to make a plushie that could actually stand in her getting pulled by her horn to a rock before getting her cutie mark pose.  That is just the first thing that Springs to mind when I think of filly Rarity.

Honestly it didn't even occur to me that people would read that poster as sexual at all when I first got it.  It was just a cool poster of Rarity in designer mode...then the comments started coming.  I just roll with them now! :D

There's like a 180 degree range of pony that shows their butts, so people tend to be determined to interpret _a lot_ of pony art as sexual. I try to laugh it off mostly. :)

No, I didn't buy it.  I traded for it.  The Rarity one was never for sale.

Ah. After reading your journal entry more closely, that makes more sense. It's just that :iconrenegadecow: said in the description of that automaton that it was commissioned.

Anyways, do you ever just take a Rarity plushie off your shelf and just hug it? Have you ever hugged more than one at once?

I worded it carefully (could you say paid for in plushie?) I was afraid had I put "traded" I'd be swamped with offers which I would find impossible to refuse.

Does it feel the least bit strange to be hugging so many copies of Rarity at once? Or is it just that much more satisfying?

I didn't really spend very much on this collection.  All but one of the fan made pieces was either traded for or won in a giveaway.

Well, I did have to buy a new shelf for it! ^^;  I've been meaning to get a wall mounted shelf for a while now though, that one shelf was just getting way to crowded.  Your pieces are what really made me do it though since there was just no way to fit both of them on!

Well, this is just my *Rarity* collection...This doesn't account for the other random non-Rarity plushies I've made for my husband and myself and all the funko figures and mini figure sets and the comics and the pony monopoly game and all the welovefine posters (one of those is a Rarity one, but I'm planning on having all the mane six up on the wall together so I didn't hang it next to my collection) and I also just got the SDCC Vinyl Scratch figure from a drawing Hot Topic was doing.  No idea where I'm putting her.  In other words I have way more pony stuff than any rational and sane human should have.

Is your husband good with carpentry? It looks like you could use a Rarity shaped shelf/display case.

He doesn't do much carpentry, no.  I know he wants to do more crafty stuff like that, but we don't really have a good place to do it, no garage or anything here :(

That does pose a problem, not to mention the noise envolved. Not to mention what happens if he actually builds you a shelf and you've acquired more things than it can hold.
