Ceratoplasty (unicorn horn constructive surgery)
This quick and simple project was a 2011 gift for my niece, who was looking for a toy that nobody had on the market: the perfect unicorn pegasus. Unicorn stuffies abound, and you'll find a pegasus or two, but never the twain shall meet, apparently.
Rainbow the mildly collectible Beanie Baby pegasus was rescued from a toy reseller for this project. I picked her because she had gorgeous wings that also looked like they could hold up to serious play. She'd spent her life—longer than my niece's—trapped in a plastic bag.
The ceratoplastic surgery went well, and the patient had immediate full function of her horn.
Rainbow was WELL received. Last I saw her, the color was nearly rubbed off her wings.
