Custom of the Week: Ocean Treasure

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a custom pony on the blog, and it’ll be a couple more after this, so I wanted to make sure to brighten your week with this beauty. I’m sure you can tell why I love her :) And since I’m heading back to Key West for another draft of Speak The Ocean I thought she was very appropriate for this week (I’m not actually going to Key West – I wish! It’s where StO is set).

Do you see the adorable 3D starfish and manta ray? (And is the octopus also 3D? I can’t tell) Definitely click through to see close-ups of all the sea life covering her body – the details are amazing!

Custom of the Week: Nova

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I told you on Update Thursday that I’d just finished listening to the audiobook THE MARTIAN, and I was feeling very spacey (especially since I’m getting over the flu and a lovely side-infection similar to strep throat. Whee!), so when I saw today’s custom with all those beautiful stars, I knew I just had to feature it.

I’m not usually a fan of puffy hair, but it looks like the gas clouds that birth stars! Which is why it’s so perfect there are stars in her tail.

Custom of the Week: Haku

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I know I’ve already featured a Haku custom before but I couldn’t resist when I saw this one. His body is super long! He makes me want to watch Spirited Away again, which reminds me, I have Castle in the Sky and Ponyo waiting for me from Netflix. I think I know what I’ll be doing all day :)

I love the whiskers and tufts of hair! How amazing!

Custom of the Week: Phycodura

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! The merfolk part of you is really going to like today’s custom. Back when I first moved to Charleston I planned to get my masters in marine biology studying seahorses (but nuclear chemistry pays better), so when I saw today’s seapony custom I fell in love. I think my mermaid, Erie, would be a fan too – the merfolk in Speak the Ocean keep seahorses as pets, similar to dogs :)

Custom of the Week: Whispering Howls

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! Custom Pony of the Week is back for 2015 and we’re kicking things off with a book-themed pony called Whispering Howls (the book symbol is White Fang). This gorgeous pony was the first custom by Janeil Nichols, and I think she did a stellar job!

The details on the 3D symbol are amazing! And I love the curly hair!

Custom of the Week: Erie the Seapony

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I’m recovering from the amazingness that was YAllFest yesterday, but I have a super extra special custom for you today. You might remember back when I featured the Wind Whistler Seapony in March and said I’d be commissioning an Erie version when I finished the first draft of Speak the Ocean. I finished the first draft a few weeks ago and commissioned my seapony and Tiella sent me photos of the finished project this week! In fact, I should be finished with my first read through and basic edits by the time Erie the seapony gets to my doorstep! (Which is why there was no update or science post this week – I’m scrambling to edit so I can send it to CPs)

*Squeals in excitement* Isn’t she stunning? I love the hair and eye color <3 And that she looks like she’s in a tiny fish tank. I’m going to have to replicate that.

Custom of the Week: Summer Bloom

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! How was everyone’s Halloween/Samhain? I heard there was snow in Michigan on Halloween, and while I remember dressing up with costumes over winter coats when I was younger, I don’t remember it ever actually snowing on Halloween. So why don’t we warm it up again with a beautiful summery pony? Caeti was one of the judges for #PonyFest14, and I do believe this is the first of her customs that I’ve featured.

Don’t you feel a warm summer breeze just looking at this pony? I love the jewels on her leg!
