Back when I was planning my wedding in 2007/2008, I became friends with an online community of women all planning their weddings for the same month and year. They're all over the US, and one's even in Canada. A sizable group of us are still friends, and some of us have met and become friends in person as well.
And for the holidays, we do a secret Santa gift exchange.
My recipient this year happens to be a former Disney employee, who still loves all that is Disney. Loves.
So for her gift, I got her Disney fabric, Disney ribbon, Disney stickers, Disney buttons, and even some non-Disney stuff!
Also, she likes unicorns.
In my travels, and while shopping for her gifts, I found that apparently Minnie Mouse has dressed as many princesses... but never a unicorn! Not one I could find anyway. Well, of course I had to remedy that.
Behold... the one and only Minniecorn!
I used this drawing I found online as a basis for Minnie's shape and stance and angles, but I did draw it freehand, as you'll notice if you take a look for inconsistencies. It was so fun to create! And I love that my friend will own a piece of Disney fan-art that will never exist anywhere else.
Besides, you know me & handmade.
