Yes I know we all have at least one. That ugly pony that is just... So ugly it grew on you. Kinda like a mould.
Named for the fact he looks like old mustard. A DCS GC failure for someone else. Think he was suposed to be black and white? Epic fail regardless! his absolute failureness made me love him.
So PI who is your ugly? And what is their story?
Aw, Col. Mustard is adorable! I love his body color.
Meet Bacterial Contamination
I was trying for light cyan or black hair and monarch. Instead, I got this greenish-gray blue hair and monarch.
I was thrilled with her white body, but not really much else... until I realized how perfect of a representation she was of the Vocaloid song she was named for! Not what I was going for, but with her new name and everything I adore her~
This ugly little guy's name is Fandral
I created a thread a while back about how I liked to create DVSOs that look a little long-lined, (don't get me wrong, I also adore the classic beauties). Well one kind player gifted me this boy who was in her nursery. I named him something ugly and harsh sounding and I adore him!
Lemonade. I was going for pale yellow... and obviously didn't get it. =_=
So that led to the joke that I put in her profile.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
Sometimes life gives you some really rotten lemons.
Named for what I had hoped would look like a white and light blue starry sky on a darker purple pony....something that obviously didn't happen with my boy here. The Gen was having a go at me that night, as usual. My girl came out almost right, and my boy came out, oh so wrong.....lol I kept him, and even though that grey kills me, he's grown on me just the same....
I don't honestly have any that I think are ugly. I've made ugly ponies, sure. But I never kept them.
That being said, I do have 2 sets of ponies that other people would consider to be ugly. First are:
October Dreams & Last Chance
The story behind them is that their parents were some of the first ponies I ever owned. Both were AOOCS's back when AOOCS's cost like $10 a piece. lol They have 6 brothers and sisters and when October Dreams finally came out, i was ecstatic. She was exactly the outcome I wanted. Last Chance was the final pony the parents had, but no one was buying her. Finally when she had an hour or so left before dying unnamed, I just had to name her. For some reason it seemed wrong to just let her die.
Then several months back I decided to clean out my stables and I ended up getting rid of a lot of ponies. These two both ended up on my sale account and were there for maybe a week before I decided I just couldn't sell them. Period. I couldn't. So Viola! Now they are mine forever!
And then my second set is these girls:
Rainfall, Tundra & Tereis
I've had then for a long time as well. There really isn't a big story about them. They were made a long time ago, each with a mate, but the boys I sold and just ended up keeping the girls. They also went to the sale account, but I just couldn't sell them, so I moved them back to this account. I adore my girls and they each have their own color like pink, purple and green.
I recently just maxed all 5 ponies for the first time and yeah. I just love them! I don't consider them ugly, but other people definitely do.
When I first genned him I though "Eww! He's grey! Why did my first Mountie have to be so ugly!" But I fell in love with his mane and he is my most attractive grey pony :3 So fluffy and cuddly, he is the sweetheart of my stables ^^
I bought this girl, even though she is not the best colors.
She was a gen fail..but in my eyes she is fantastic because of her breeding potential.
Look at her son
So any pony has the potential to shine.
Oh my gosh Elven! I adore your bottom three Kirin girls! If I were a bigger fan of flutters I might even feel more of an affinity for the top two, but your bottom three are just lovely I love how you gave them their own color schemes as well. On my main account I have couples I dress alike, and I thought I was completely bonkers. I guess it just shows how much we love our favorites
Meet Zombie! Named because he looks like he's half way through decomposing!
I'm waiting for his parents to spawn a girl, so I can name her Apocalypse.
Quote Ladydragon Sub:
Thanks! Yeah, I love my girlies and I love dressing them alike. I pretty much consider them triplets even though they are obviously not! lol
I'm going to have to say...
Zest the Pest
He of course had a story before he was made, came out very wrong, but grew on me. He's an eccentric magician, who has a smidgeon of a problem with rhyming. He's supposed to have a top-hat, but since they don't have them, he's got to be without is magically magic hat, poor guy. He's got to live with earmuffs.
Although, I do have a couple other girls on my account that have died and I haven't gotten to resurrect them yet. Failed girls, just couldn't let them go.
Adelade and Syndicate
I was looking for questing fodder babies to help my youngest darlings Contest. Cheap, nothing to be attached to, and plans to sell the surviviors. (at that point I was still learning not to MK)
Yet somehow they've attached and boiced personailty....
She somehow became the figure-head Queen of the kingdom. A choosen royal for the philosophy that an ugly queen will concentrate on the needs of others, rather then her own joys. Really, somehow, a victim of the Court.
Smaug Named for a vain, rude dragon in The HOBBIT - and the name sounds fitting... smog, see?....for that ugly body tone.
Why, oh why, are they stilll here?
I gened this girl aiming for black owo;
I had planned to get ride of her...but some part of me couldn't. She is now my zombie :D!
Ugh, Make A Wish... She was much cuter as a baby when I bought her. Oh, and today is her 200th day birthday!
And this train wreck...
I was trying to see exactly how many generations it would take to breed a 0.0% IB pony from my stable queen using free-breed starters. And this was the result. Her name is Melanie, because she looks... Melon-y.
*would probably help if I put her pic up, huh? I need coffee.*
Why are these ponies not quested to death?? I'm not sure why I keep them.
Well, I probably have a lot of ponies that users could call ugly. Tinted greys and browns, that bronzey-greeney color, tones that look like they're a fail for pale yellow, clashing combinations, the whole nine yards.
But for me, personally, I think it would be this girl:
I only own three female seaponies and one is part of a breeding pair. I don't really like their hair very much. So this one I've had for a while, but never really liked.... Until that awesome costume came out, and I went along and tattooed her to see if I liked her any better yet. Before, I was almost considering just overcontesting her to free up space, but now I think she's going to stay around. ^^
I am not a huge fan of grey at all, and for a while I was trying to sell this girlie plus I am not a fan of water ponies either. Buut..after a while she grew on me so I took her bid box down and spoiled her a bit with items. She is my first Seapony I ever genned (pretty darn sure of that) because I wanted to try out the new gene. I was aiming for black but we all know how that goes.
Don't really like th body colour but her hair is AMAZING!!! That's probably why I kept her...
Oh, I love Col. Mustard! He's adorable
Meet my gen fails, Peyton and Trinity:
When I was genning Peyton, I was aiming for a black bodied pony with purple hair. Well, I got the hair right .__.
I decided I would have another go when genning Trinity. This time, I decided I would aim for a black or even a navy, and dark purple hair. But, no, I got this hideous dark pink and slightly darker hair combination. I'm not a big fan of a body and hair colour that are almost identical, and not a big fan of these colour ponies, and she's what I got. I kept both of them, though, cause I got used to seeing them in my stables since no one wanted to buy them, and eventually just learned to love them.
I also have this girl:
Meet Saoirse. She's inbred, a mixie, and even died unnamed. But I res'd her. I wanted to res a starter from an old account but realized I couldn't do that, and she was my only dead pony, so I figured why not. I got her back, and yes, she is pretty ugly, but she's a cute kind of ugly. She always has very gorgeous babies. Her son Vega is black with zigzags (barely noticeable since the zigzags are black but I like it), and light purple hair, and an HDapple fairy pony, and a valky with purple hair and yellow tips.
Saoirse is very dull, and the only thing I liked about her at first was her hair. I love her now though, she's a beaut, to me!
I always thought she was ugly untill I got her in gold armour, now it makes her green hair look nicer
What other people may consider ugly are my unique ponies
There's Hollis one of my self-bred DVSO's and I love him to pieces,
