Oh lord, what have I gotten myself into? I decided to make some ponies for the Otakon art show, and now I’ve added one or two for the Bronycon charity auction.

Current list is: Rarity, Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Iron Man, and 2x PinkiePool. (I’ll actually be making three, but one is for me, so I can make her anytime I want. The others are for Bronycon and Otakon. And I’m making one for myself because it’s going to be hard to give up the other two, even though that ‘s specifically what I’m making them for. </loser>) I’m considering a Princess Twilight and a Captain Equestria, depending on how much I decide I hate sleeping. Maybe also a Dark Neight-t and Colt Wonder if I’m really feeling masochistic. XD

(Note: Applejack and Twilight are already done, so I don’t need to worry about them.)

I  really see only one thing in my immediate future: PONIES. PONIES EVERYWHERE. (Also, possibly, hand cramps.)

Power Ponies RD DONE. :D :D :D 

JFC, those wings took so goddamn long because I had to keep frogging the yarn and starting over because I’d get four or five rounds in and realise “Nope, sorry! Still TOO DAMN SMALL.” I eventually had to use four strands of RHSS yarn held together and my I hook. And the tail, of course, took forever as well, because LATCHHOOKED YARN. About a freaking mile of latchhooked yarn in six colors. Agh. The ears weren’t so bad, though I had to make up my own pattern for them because the one I found was for more 2-D pony ears and I wanted something a little more substantial.

Lightning bolt necklace (which I think might be backwards in this photo, but whatever), collar and headdress/band/whatever-you-want-to-call-it made by my mum, who has way more experience and ability in making shit out of plastic canvas needlepoint than I do.

The suit itself isn’t quite as dark as I would have liked (though it actually is darker than it shows in these photos-see the blue of the head-thing for a good idea of what the suit looks like without flash), but it’s good enough for me. 

(Augh, the front shot is so bad. I didn’t feel like putting makeup on for a two second shot, and I look like a zombie without eyebrows. And I still have to figure out whether I can make the suit fit better in the crotch, because seriously, WTF is going on there? Might just be a matter of needing to pull it up more, I think.)

Darth Vader plushie commission :D
The paint on his face is kinda messed up but he turned out pretty well otherwise.

Dear computer:

You suck.

No love,

The person who has to spend an hour or two fixing a corrupted user profile via a ton of tedious copy-pasting. (WTF, seriously, I haven’t touched you for two days. How did you spontaneously decide I suddenly couldn’t access my own account?)

ETA:Aaaand three hours later, I’m done. MIgrating my bookmarks took way longer than it should have because I don’t brain too well at three a.m. and couldn’t find the files.

Twilight Sparkle
I am pretty happy with her, but her cutie mark is sort of messed up on one side. :/ The hair took a while, as it&#8217;s latchhooked into the crochet, but I like the effect.

PonyPools and plushiePool. The littlest Deadpool was off doing something presumably involving explosions and screaming, and was unavailable for a photo.(Or, possibly, I just didn&#8217;t grab him for this shot. One or the other.)

A pair of PonyPools! :D I just had to get a shot of crochet!MLD and plastic!MLD together, even though I know 2x the &#8216;Pool means about 10x the mayhem. (I really need to get a good photo of them, plushiePool and action figure Deadpool together at some point.)

Fluttershy 
She was a commission, and I&#8217;m really happy with how she turned out. This was my first attempt at painting show-style eyes and they&#8217;re maybe a little messy, but not terrible. Her owner was extremely happy with her, too. ^_^

EEEEEEE! MLDeadpool made it onto EqD (Equestria Daily) in a plushie compilation!  :D :D 

So, this is a thing that happened on my street today. Neighbour/neighbour&#8217;s friend (not sure which) randomly had their van catch fire. There was another car parked beside it, but the guy who owns it had the sense to move the thing just in case the fire spread. (Whoever owns that other car right there in front of the van was either not home or doesn&#8217;t GAF about his car being a couple feet away from a van on fire.)
