Welcome to the seventh day of our very first birthday celebration!! Lucky for you, it’s also the start of our second celebratory giveaway!
You know the drill: To thank you for supporting Mouse on the Mind, we’re doing a giveaway each week throughout the month of January. Join in the birthday fun by leaving a comment, getting to know your fellow Disney nerds and entering to win this week’s very, very cool prize.
And when I say very, very cool, I mean it! This week’s giveaway is a totally one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted Merida My Little Pony created by Shareece Tatum, the founder and executive director of SoDak Anime Convention.
Making custom ponies was sort of a happy accident for Shareece: she was painting some two-inch pony figures while promoting SoDak at another con, and someone asked if she made custom ponies. “She asked for a Rapunzel, a Lightening McQueen and a Merida.
“I had so much fun making them because it really made me think of things like, what would their cutie mark be? What colors would they be? What form would they be?” says Shareece, a single mother of three who is studying tourism and hospitality management. “I became really inspired.”
She ended up making about a dozen different Disney characters, and her passions for Disney and My Little Pony grew together even as they grew more and more popular with customers. For Mouse on the Mind readers, Shareece has recreated one of her first Disney customs: Merida!
Now for some fine print: You must use the PunchTab entry form above to enter the sweepstakes. One winner will receive one custom painted My Little Pony inspired by Merida from Disney’s Brave handcrafted by Shareece Tatum. The winner will be notified via e-mail by noon on Monday, January 14, and will be announced in the Tuesday Round Up post on Mouse on the Mind on Tuesday, January 15. Good luck!!
