MY LITTLE PONY is a popular toy and animated series created by American toy and entertainment company Hasbro and has charmed children throughout the world over the past several decades. The brand was brought to life through toys in 1983 and followed with an animated series.
The brand was reimagined in 2010 in the form of an animated show known as My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which became popular with adults as well as children and became a cultural phenomenon.
From the 1980s to this day, the franchise is widely beloved by people throughout the world!
Like the Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle statues, the rendering of Fluttershy for Kotobukiya was created by BISHOUJO series illustrator Shunya Yamashita!(@ShunyaYamashita）
The BISHOUJO’s appearance is based on the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls film, where the ponies from Friendship is Magic go through a magic mirror to become human girls. It is not an exact representation of that character design, but rather a unique illustration that features lots of small details that represent the pony’s personality from the series as a whole.
This is the final version of the illustration that took shape as we discussed the character and design with Hasbro.
Although she isn’t the strongest pony and sometimes has trouble speaking up, Fluttershy is a kindhearted character who loves taking care of forest animals. Even though she can be shy and reserved, Fluttershy is an extremely kind pony who always keeps the best interest of others in mind.
We took a long time to perfect the statue’s pose and expression to reflect her personality!
From the subtle balance of her stance, to the angle of her knees and the sculpting of her carefully crossed fingertips
Even though it’s a simple standing pose, we packed in a lot of subtle and unique details ♪
Fluttershy clutches her right hand in her left, as if protecting it. Check out the details in her fingertips.
Even the way she stands is shy, as she pulls her body backwards slightly.
The statue’s design is excellently balanced to make sure the way she looks up at you is endearing and not unsettling.
The pearlescent lip color on the bottom lip color shows off her pout.
She also has an adorable blush on her cheeks!
The yellow frill on her dress is made of translucent plastic, giving it an airy and light appearance.
We wanted this accent to have volume, but not appear too heavy.
And of course a sculpture of the original Fluttershy sits at the Bishoujo’s feet!
Like all of the ponies in this line, our sculptor worked hard to recreate the unique texture of Fluttershy’s wavy hair.
And of course, the pony figure has three-dimensional eyelashes. They really highlight her gentle expression.
The back of the pony figure looks like this!
The sculptor put a lot of care to recreate the lines of the pony’s body in this sitting pose, making sure to cut the parts in a way that won’t stand out.
I hope you’ll check it out in person if you get the chance!
I recommend taking pictures of it with lots of cute props such as flowers and lace.
The 3rd MY LITTLE PONY BISHOUJO FLUTTERSHY
