Ooh la la, Rarity's done!
I went with a more floppy look for her tail because she's going to a 5 year old, and I realized that within not much time at all, any attempt at keeping a shape will be lovingly squeezed away, hehe. But, it does still have some curl! And she actually turned out rather adorable.
She's made from minky, has machine embroidered eyes and cutie marks, and is about 13 inches or so tall, not including the horn.
