G3 Breezies! I loved them :D Sadly I don’t know these one’s names at the moment!!

Hi there friendo! I didn’t see anyone helping you in the notes, so I wanted to lend a helping hand! I use Strawberry Reef (http://www.strawberryreef.com/index.html) for all of my G3-identification needs, and I’ve very quickly figured out the names of your ponies for you! The yellow one is Zipzee (http://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Name/zipzee.html), the purple one is either Meadow Moon (http://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Name/meadowmoon.html) or Lady Slipper (http://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Pose/breezie2.html), because it’s hard to tell without seeing her symbol! And lastly, the pink one on the right is (I believe!) Honeydew Hum (http://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Name/honeydewhum.html)! They’re all lovely ponies! Apologies if I’m repeating something everyone else has already said! I love the fabric you used for the background, BTW!
THE BOOTLEGS AND BOOTLEGS’ SISTER MASTERPOST

I’m not an expert on these two fakies AT ALL, but after I found a lot with dragondicks adorably nicknamed ‘Boot Legs’ fakie in it (as well as her sister!), I had to buy it! And now, months later, I’ve finally gotten around to taking pictures of both of them! Neither of them have been to the salon yet, so these braids and curls are original, if a little frizzy!

Here’s my original brag post, if you’re curious to see how they originally looked!

Woo hoo, random brag post! 

I had an awesome day on Thursday because I got to see one of my BFFs who recently moved to my area! And since she’s new to this part of the state, of course I had to be a good friend and show her all my fave pony-hunting spots at the mall! We managed to hit TRU on a big sale day, apparently, so I might have splurged a liiiiiiittle too much on fashion packs! But everything with a brown sticker was something like 80% off, so I got them all for super cheap! 

I grabbed a lot of Rarity stuff, since she’s my fave pony, the last Pinkie Cooper doll I need to have all three ‘friends’ (I still want to complete my collection though, they’re so cute!), and a bunch of clearanced outfits for my Monster High girls to wear! Not pictured: $15 of candy which we snuck into The Fault in Our Stars! (Which was predictably terrible.) 

I had a great time, and so did my friend! Much fun was had by all!

Wow, I’ve gained ten followers since posting pictures of my latest custom ponies! (And it’s my 100th post too, woot!!)

Well, hi to everyone, first of all! Thank you very much for following me, I appreciate it a lot! This is just my little collecting/pony blog, primarily to post pics of my collection, so I’m really impressed that it has followers at all! I love chatting with fellow collectors/toy fans, so feel free to drop me a note if you’d like! :)

I’m not a very speedy poster, generally what happens is I’ll have a ‘photo day’ and post several posts in rapid succession, then go quiet for a couple weeks! So if you don’t hear anything from me for awhile, don’t worry! That’s normal!

I thought I’d just give you a little update - funnily enough, the general consensus seems to be the reversed on these two between Tumblr and the Arena! On Tumblr, the ‘Lady Knight’ custom has 120+ notes, while Owl Cameo is hovering at around 30; but in the contest (which is decided by a public vote), Lady Knight is being creamed by the other competitors, while Owl Cameo is in first place for her division! Funny how things turn out sometimes!

Thanks again for stopping by, I hope you enjoy following my blog!

Great news, everyone! Owl Cameo won first place in her division!! Yay!!!

Just in case anyone was curious, these are what my two latest customs looked like before paint and new hair! I posted this picture about a month ago, when I first signed up for the contest - and I didn’t really work on them until the last weekend before the contest ended. Procrastination is annoying!!

This girl took a TON of work, so I want to post a bunch of pictures of her!

I’ve been calling her Lady Knight/Shoujo Knight, because I wanted to create a properly girly mount for a lady knight, which also drew inspiration from the illustration style of early shoujo ‘magical girl’ manga. (Thanks to my friend Cornelia89 for showing me all her faves and inspiring me!) I gave her a pastel color scheme, and sort of cranked up the girliness factor on her to eleven. It was a blast, and now I wanna make another super-pastel pony!

Crafting details: I hand-made her entire set of armor! The bridle and saddle are all made by me, and are all removable, nothing is glued to her body. The ‘armor’ is made up of ribbon (reins and saddle/saddle blanket) and chain, mostly for the bridle. She was also made from a fakie pony, much like Owl Cameo, and this particular pony came to me covered in airbrush paint in magenta and black. Her hair is also all from Dollyhair, also in the MLP style nylon (I love that stuff!), and the colors are Fairy’s Breath, Arctic Frost, and Twilight.

EDIT: Oops, I forgot something - I referenced her symbol! My friend Jacktryoshka suggested I take something like a jousting lance and make it pastel, so I took it one step further and used a Halberd from the online game I play, FFXI, and made it pink! http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:FFXI_Polearm_2A.png Just in case you were curious!

Thanks to all of my friends who offered advice and support making this pony, she drove me a little batty at times, LOL!

This is my latest custom pony, “Owl Cameo”, created for a custom contest on the MLP Arena! 

(I stayed up all night finishing two customs, so I’ll be darned if I don’t post their pictures before I go to bed!)

This girl was made out of a fakie, and I gave her all new hair and symbols, including punching a new line of hair to supplement the thin fakie hair. The blue body color is original, and the hair colors I used are from Dollyhair, all ‘MLP’ nylon: Blizzard, Daiquiri Ice, Mermaid, Forget Me Not, Pacific Ocean and the orange-gold color is Passion Fruit.

Here’s the reveal to my last post - it was a Monster High CAM set, specifically the “Insect Girl”, for only $3.49! Woo hoo! 

I had a mini glee-attack when I found her - she was lying on the floor, and I had completely overlooked her the first time I passed by. I already have a Bee (or three …), but it’s one of my favorite CAM sets, and I couldn’t bear the thought of her being left behind! Luckily, during my torso-buying spree of last Christmas, I already had a yellow torso for her, as well as a new outfit all ready to go! 

I tried to use her stock wig, but she was having some major ‘Frankenstein’s forehead’ issues, so I dug through my drawer and found her a new wig - this one belonged to the Three-Eyed monster CAM, and I put it on backwards! For whatever reason, this Bee just wanted to be in pink! 

I’ll have to get a pic of all of my Bee girls, it’s turning into a regular “hive” of activity over here! ;)

This is a small teaser for my shopping trip on Wednesday with one of my closest friends, Vesperblade! We had a great time, and I maaaay have picked up a few impulse buys …! Feel free to guess who this might be, I’ll post pictures of her all dolled up soon! For now, I’m off to work on speed-rehairing my fakie contest entries - yep, I put them off til the very last second, as usual!
