Modifying My Little Ponies seems to be the latest artistic phase going around, and boy does it look tempting. It’s so tempting, in fact, that my daughter and I made this drawing of Starlight from Rainbow Brite as a My Little Pony—to be fair, we saw someone’s modified toy version and drew it; we just added a bunch of color and sequins.
If you look up the My Little Pony meme, you’ll find all kinds of variations, from Star Wars ponies to Tron ponies to Avengers ponies. Perhaps the most comprehensive and fun list of pony mods can be found here. My favorites are probably the Edward Scissorhands pony and the Freddie Krueger pony, though the Alien pony is pretty amazing, and the Catwoman one is a lot of fun, too.
It’s even more fun to name the ponies creatively. For example, an Iron Man pony was named “Pony Stark.” Most don’t have such names but it’s a nice touch, don’t you think?
If you decide to modify your own pony, be sure to post pictures! We’re going to start collecting them so we can modify our own. I think the first one that we’ll make will be the Buckbeak (Hippogriff from Harry Potter) one…
