A lot of people have been asking for this, so here a guide for how I get from my crease pattern [link] to something vaguely resembling a My Little Pony.

Of course, you can still do all the final shaping however you want. Just because this is how I do it doesn't mean this is the only good way. I would recommend following the instructions for orienting the legs right after collapsing the base, as that is the only step not in the crease pattern that is truly structural and not just detailing. Other than that, be creative! There are plenty of ponies with manes that don't look like the mane 6 (toy lines to the contrary). Go ahead and fold Cheerilee, or Bon-bon, or anypony else for that matter. Fill the world with origami ponies!

Pony Head Base still belongs to :iconcahoonas:
Instructions can be found here: [link]

Help! I can't collapse the base, especially the central point. The picture is hard to see. It would help if you could make a video showing to make it.

One year passed and i still can't understand how to reverse-fold and collapse the top of the base at step 5  T_T

You just made a lot of little girls at the hospital where I work very happy, I'll start folding them tonight so I can have a bunch done for the pediatrics ward this week.  Thank You !!!!!

I love the finished product and I wish I could have one of my own, but I got stuck on frame 4. I tried and tried to copy what I saw but I just couldn't get the creases right, or get it to collapse the same way. In the end I had to give up because the paper was falling apart.
Will try again.
