Rarity Dress Making by renegadecow Rarity Dress Making by renegadecow
Rarity Unicorn might find dress making easy, but it sure wasn't easy for me making an automaton of her making a dress. And Opalescence just happily snoozing down there didn't provide much motivation for me at all! But if the third time's a charm, this fourth piece in my pony automaton series is simply charming and that's not just out of my preference for Rarity but simply because she's the best pony. Did I mention that Rarity is best pony?
The figures, stand, and most of the sewing machine plus table are carved out of Philippine mahogany while the gears and small sewing machine moving parts are made of Narra hardwood. The figures are painted with enamel and acrylic for the metallic accents on the sewing machine and protected by clear flat lacquer.
The entire piece measures 7" long, 8 1/2" tall and 3 3/4" wide with Rarity standing at 5 1/2". It took 110 hours to make.

Watch her sew on Youtube:

Rarity will not be for sale as she is commissioned by [link]

Looking through your wood working, this is all incredibly impressive. They all seem to be such complicated and intricate pieces. Absolutely great work. :)

Wow, I can't even think of where to begin for a project like this. I'm just in awe. Superb wood carvings and overall sculpting! I love how interactive and alive everything seems to be when it's in motion. Love all the details on Rarity and the sewing machine. It's fun to watch and a pleasure to look at. Splendid work!
