Check out the Color Matching Guide by Year

I am working on redoing the guide to include "Amara's Opinion". My opinions are based on my extensive work comparing ponies for over a year just for this project. I have been a members of the online collecting community since 1996 and have been selling hair online since 1999. I strive to provide the most accurate information as possible for all customizers use :-)

This guide is here to help you find a matching replacement hair for your pony. Many of Hasbro's ponies used the same hair colors, however there are a few ponies that have a hair color unique to them. All of the hair matches I had made in nylon are compared here, as well as the exclusive colors so that you can compare them. My nylon colors were matched by my manufactuer to the very purest original 80's (g1) and current (g3) colors. In most cases, I chose the darkest and richest color (assuming it was the most pure). This matching process took me over a year! I hope this match guide will be a useful resource to you. Enjoy!

7/13 Matching information up for up to year 6. Many thanks to those that helped me with a few colors matches I was missing- their contributions will be added ASAP..
I need YOUR help matching these colors.


 

HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE:
This guide can be used it two ways: you can search by color to easily find the color you want from my store or to find a donor pony for your custom or restoreation project.

Colors are catagorized by base color and listed from darkest to lightest; florescent and "mixed" colors (for example, blue-greens) are at the end.

 

This means that the color is available in my store for purchase.

This image means the color listed here is also available in my store for purchase. Clicking this image will open a seperate browser with that color's page in the store so that you can easily add it to your cart.
NOTE: You must click the "Add to Cart" button on the new page that opens... clicking this image will not automatically add it :-)

This color will be coming to CustomPony.com SOON!
This image means that the color listed is NOT currently in the store, but will soon be available for order!
This image means that this color is also used in the G3 line.
This image means that this color is also available in the current G3 pony line. This could be useful for those looking for a doner pony. I do not have a G3 hair guide currently available, but have temporarily listed the G3 colors here that I have available in the store. ---NOT ALL MATCHES ARE MARKED YET. I'm still comparing these :-) ---

YELLOW

 

Butterscotch hair Close Up
BUTTERSCOTCH Yellow - "Amber Waves"
Butterscotch
Who has this color: (this color is unique to Butterscotch)
  • Butterscotch

 

 

 

   
"Amber Waves"
Comparison Picture: (left original - right "Amber Waves ")  
This color is available in my store!
 
   

Amara's Opinion: "Amber Waves is an exact match for a pure, unfaded Butterscotch yellow. I have observed that the original pony hair can fade on this girl."

"Observe how the ponies in the picture to the right have a slight varience in their hair color. The Butterscotch on the left has a pure, dark mane while the Butterscotch on the right has a faded tail (Note that the flash on my camera makes them both appear lighter)."

Crumpet Hair Close Up
CRUMPET Yellow - "Midas Touch"
Crumpet
Who has this color:
  • Crumpet
  • Baby Lucky Leaf

 

 

 

   
"Midas Touch"
Comparison Picture: (left original - right "Midas Touch")  
This color is available in my store!
 
Crumpet's mane compared.
   
Amara's Opinion: "Midas Touch is an exact match for the hair of a pure, unfaded Crumpet or Baby Lucky Leaf. This color is naturally a golden, yellow-orange. I have observed that the original pony hair can fade on these ponies, usually loosing it's orange hue and becoming more yellow."    

Applejack hair Close Up
APPLEJACK Yellow - "Pineapple"
Skydancer and Applejack
Who has this color:
  • Applejack
  • Sunbeam
  • Moonstone

"Pineapple"
Comparison Picture: (left original - right "Pineapple")  
This color is available in my store!
 

Left original, Right "Pineapple"

   
Amara's Opinion: "Pineapple is an exact match for the hair of a pure, unfaded 'Applejack Yellow'. This color is naturally a pale yellow-orange. The orignal hair color is pretty steadfast, but as with all pony hair can be faded over time, especially if left in direct sunlight."    

Lofty Hair Close Up
LOFTY Yellow - "Sunny Day"
Lofty & Baby Lofty
Who has this color:

"Sunny Day"

This color is also in the G3 line.
Amara's Opinion: "Sunny Day is an exact match for the hair of a pure, unfaded 'Lofty Yellow' hair. There are variations of this hair color from fairly light to a nice, deep yellow. I feel that the variaions are from each hair batch though some may also be from fading. My 'Sunny Day' nylon match has been made to match the dark yellow."

So Soft RibbonOriginal hair left, right "Lightning Bolt"
   
Amara's Opinion: "Lightning Bolt is an exact match for the hair of a pure, unfaded 'Suprize Yellow' hair. There are variations in the tint of this hair color, from more yellow or more green, though I believe it is a batch variation, I do not believe that it is caused by fading. My 'Lightning Bolt' match has more of a yellow tint."

Amara's Opinion: "Summer Meadow is an exact match for the darker variation of Magic Star Green."

"There are two variations of Magic Star green. One is a bright spring grass type green while the other is a few shades darker. My "Summer Meadow" nylon match will not be as suitable if you are looking to replace only a few plugs on a pony with the brighter version of this hair. In the picture to the right you can see a Magic Star with the lighter hair variation and the Quackers with the darker variation. Although compared to each other there does not seem to be much of a difference (right, top), this becomes more evident when compared to the skein (right, below). The darker variation is an exact match while the lighter one has a notible difference."
