Community Creativity

The pony community makes some amazing things! These amazing sculpts were at a brony party I attended last night.

Brony Meetup Video

One of the bronies at the meetup had a video camera and put together some footage of the meetup. You can see me (dark hair, ponytail) at the front table. I'm not in the end picture because I was holding the camera.

Brony Meetup News

Oh my gosh! I'm home from my brony meetup and I'm proud to say it seems to have been quite a success. We had just shy of 20 members show up and I didn't hear an complaints at all. Look at my amazing treat bags! Each one was full of pony stuff and I spent hours putting them together but it was totally worth it to see the bronies get excited about them. People seemed to really like the random molded pony figures and the glue sticks. Due to a person or two dropping out I even have a treat bag or two left for myself :) And I said I wasn't going to get into the molded ponies.... help!

Oh, and did I mention that I got an email from a local reporter for the Wall Street Journal and that she wanted to come talk to the bronies at my meetup? Well that's what happened! So I sat next to a for-real reporter today while we ate Indian food and watched My Little Pony on the TV at the restaurant.

Now it's time to make dinner because I am exhausted!

Krastos the Gluemaker

It's less than 48 hours before my brony meetup and I've just finished my "krastos the glue maker" labels. Yes, I bought cheap glue sticks for my "nightmare night" treat bags. I'm not sure if I like Spike as Krastos or if I should change it to another character.

Getting Art

One of the things I like about the pony community is they do a lot of swaps, trading hasbro ponies, custom ponies, and even ATC cards. I wonder if you go to a pony convention if there are a lot of these around. Remember the scans of the artwork I did from the last post? Well I got my pony art in the mail and scanned it.

Dovetail at the arena drew me a High Flyer in autumn, and even made a cute little "back card" story for it.

Halloween ATC Stuff

Hello all,

I'm home with strep throat today, but I figure being wrapped up like a cocoon on the couch is as good of a time as any to update the pony blog.

Ben found a few Wave 3 G4s at target, the exact same day I got frustrated with not being able to find dewdrop dazzle and ordered the set online. They were on backorder for a while but they've finally shipped now.

I've been working kind of crazy hours, but I did squeak into the Halloween/Autumn ATC swap which produced these lovely pieces.
