Draculaura pony by Catzilerella Draculaura pony by Catzilerella
It's been on the back burner, this project to remake the first pony I ever made. In 2012 I became more ambitious about making plush. My oldest and I had just gotten into the MLP:FIM series and we were smitten! We just loved it! I came across free plush pony patterns here on DA and was inspired. I made a draculaura as I had the colors to make her on hand from past projects and I also love MH.

Oh I thought she was so great! and My daughter loved her. She is no longer in our possession sadly so I decided she needed to be remade. I am so proud of this updated version and this is the best evidence of my improvements with applique, drafting mane and tail patterns and general plushing, I'd think. 
Here are more views:

The only thing I'd like to improve on next is adding the bat wings. I didn't get to do it this time as I totally ran out of fabric. I had made some small ones reversed in color, black being the main color and they totally got lost in the mane so I scrapped that idea.  I've decided that Draculaura will be my replush pony, once I get on to drafting my own pattern which is something I've been wanting to do for a while now, Dracu is getting another makeover. I don't know when that will happen as I've been dabbling in a new pattern for over a yr now but this is likely my last pony with this pattern made by the lovely :iconvalleyviolet: 

I just love her and I love her hair! It was an attempt to try to make her tails looks a bit like they were curling there at the end. I think it looks it! What do you think? I had been wanting to make a pony with curls like this after seeing one of :iconmoggymawee: amazing pony plush with these beautiful drill looking curls. Thank you for being an inspiration. <3

So happy to hear it! 
At some point I need to make a Frankie. She's actually my favorite.

OMGosh! Frankie would look incredibly cute! Frankie's my favorite, too. Ghoulia is my second fave, but I really love all of the main characters. I think one of the prettiest character designs is Skelita Calaveras. I love Dia De Los Muertes so I just think she's beautiful. If you ever make a Frankie, please post pics! I would LOVE to see her!

I love the expressions Ghoulia makes sometimes. It so spot on. I watch the specials when they come on tv but I haven't been able to watch any of their stuff online yet. I love the whole idea they promote of being who you are - no matter what.

bahah! Yes!! Shes such a cool zombie. 
I like the movies they've put out only because I just love MH (and yes! I love that idea too), but I so wish they would of kept the animation to what they had with with webisodes. It was just so much cuter that way.

I love that she's the smartest student even though she's a zombie (who are normally seen as brainless). I love the specials and just love MH, too. Now I really must check out the webisodes if you think the art style is cuter!

Thank you!!! 
haha, yah, so much pink! XD
I think I'm totally going to at least make her a white skirt and maybe a ruffled white choker necklace. 
It'll be fun to dress her up.
