Calvin and Goblin

I picked these guys up from customs on Monday.

I am SOOOO happy with Calvin, the blue is glittery! He is one of my favourite decorators, they need to do this blue colour on more models it is LUSH

Of course no model horse can travel alone and this one came with another decorator, Goblin. Love this model as well, such a fun design. Only disappointment is that she doesn't really glow in the dark. Also like many others the eyes freak me out...

I finally finished this girl today (and that's to my new sealant she isn't sticky anymore)!

She is a great example of what can be done with more 'toy' like bodies. She looks so gorgeous I wish I could keep her! Sadly I cannot and she must find a new home, I just know whoever gets her will love her!
