Kanye West, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga are just some of the icons referenced when creating this set of My Little Pony Dolls by Mari Kasurinen.

The Finnish artist recreates the popular 90s toy and infuses each of her pieces with a touch of drama. Whether referencing Kanye's jeweled face mask by Maison Martin Margiela or recreating Lady Gaga's infamous meat ensemble, the artist incorporates humor into her unique creations.

"Introduced by Hasbro way back in 1981, My Little Pony toys were distinctively girly and featured pretty pastel coloring and decorative rainbow and star embellishments." Mari Kasurinen's customized versions oppose this traditional notion and pay homage to some of our generation's greatest pop culture icons including Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld and legendary rock band The Beatles.
