MLP custom diorama: Daring + Derpy, archeologists! by vulpinedesigns MLP custom diorama: Daring + Derpy, archeologists! by vulpinedesigns
Another blindbag diorama, a bit bigger than my usual stuff! Daring Do and Derpy, both in pith helmets and khaki shirts, running/flying through a ruined temple away from a large boulder that's rolling perilously close behind them! Both have priceless purloined artefacts in their mouths - Daring has a golden cobra, while Derpy has, as expected, a golden muffin. Absolutely no bonus points for guessing which film I was watching when I made this...

2x blindbags, wood, putty, flock and acrylic paints! Ebay link, usual 0.99 start! [link]

Lol, she wasn't quite as blue in real life - the camera flash exaggerated it a bit! But yes, she's grey with a hint of blue in the show, and I slightly misjudged how much hint to use - didn't notice until everything else was painted!

IDK how many people said this in the comments, but have you read "The Sisters Doo" on fimfiction? It's pretty much that these two are sisters, and Daring doesn't give her sister any credit in the books. It's a fun idea and I love what you did with this! So, this was made with two blindbag toys to which you added the clothing and surrounding scene?

Thanks, really glad you like it! D'oh - I credited The Sisters Doo on the ebay listing, but forgot to put it in the dA description, oops! Have only read the first few chapters so far, but I'm finding it a fantastic story - makes so much sense that they're sisters!
That's right - I whittled down two blindbags, reposed them into running poses, then sculpted the manes, tails, clothes and accessories with kneadite putty. The temple was made from a board circle, chopped-up fluted table leg and putty!

Wow! That's a lot of work! You better get a lot for it, sounds like you deserve it! Also, it's a great fic. I won't spoil anything, if you're confused with the whole mirror thing, that is a fic that Ponky wrote AFTER "The Sisters Doo", not before like I had thought.

XD They'll come in handy someday~ You'll get to make more unique diorama with stuff like that lying around your room.
