Blind Samurai by LightningSilver-Mana Blind Samurai by LightningSilver-Mana
Design #2 of my asian kimono series of customs.

Base is an engineered pose from the pink generation 3 winter exclusive pony with the blue tree for the cutie mark. Head is of the bright blue generation 3 pony that had the 3-D daisy cutie mark.

Full body repaint in a custom blend of pale gray acrylics. Eyes also painted in acrylics layered in realism textures.
Eyes are painted to resemble ice-blue eyes that are hazed over from blindness.

Mane and tail are re-rooted in garnet jewel, cherry pie and recycled pink Hasbro pony hair.

Outfit 100% hand-sewn, detailed in hemp, bias tape, maxi piping and ribbons.

Hair has beads sewn in to it, bangs are styled with my hair gel method.

Sword is a wood dowel I painted in silver and metallic pewter acrylics. Handle is beads wired together, painted in antique acrylics.

The tan-colored accessory is a gourd-jug.

I found myself asking the same question, but then a Game of Thrones quote popped in to mind: when you wield a sword, you have no gender".

LOL ok I see. Really really tempted to cosplay this. It's an original design yea? Therefore as creator/artist would you be in any way opposed to that?

Dang... I'm sure the pictures of this do not do it justice! Just my opinion but I can see this looking even more amazing face to face. Fantastic work!

I think I came to the realization that the flash got bumped on the camera or something so I went ahead and redid the photo shoot and did-away with the first pics.

Feel free to let me know if the updated photos are better.

How the heck do you make the outfit so small but so intricate? This is way above and beyond the usual level of custom work i'm used to seeing. Very well done
