The creative/collecting blog of a longtime pony fan! Expect creativity, collecting brags and the constant question: should I buy this?
Good day everyone! This holiday season I want to draw pictures for you all as gifts! They will be small cel or soft shaded pictures in SAI. My hand just got better with my tablet and I’m feeling the need to practice more :D
1)Must be G-PG rated.
2) The drawing subject must be from one of my fandoms, mainly My Little Pony ( you can ask for G1,G2, G3, or G4 ponies), Powerpuff Girls or the like. If I’ve never drawn a certain character before, and they are more human like I can’t promise I will be able to do a great job, but I’ll try.
3) You must be following me and like or reblog (rebloging is best since more people can get gifts by seeing this).
4) For the sake of my sanity the giftaway sign ups will close on the 10th.
5) Please either Note or send an Ask to me with what you want me to draw on the 11th.

Some of my inspiration for the ‘boys in dresses’ posts were the fact that I never knew boy MH dolls could fit into Barbie clothes, and as a child, I’d had a TON of Barbies and their clothing, which I still have! (Yay for being a packrat!) So I had a fun couple of hours, digging through my old Barbie boxes and picking out dresses and outfits for the boys. (I can’t wait to put them into some more ‘casual’ wear that isn’t the same three outfits!!) Also, because Oak23 had reblogged a beautiful picture of Heath in a dress referencing a crossdressing cultural norm in Japan I had never heard about before! And also the fact that someone had recently pulled a shit-fit about Heath ‘daring’ to wear a dress.
Ultimately, anyone can dress their dolls in any way they choose; to them, their Heath doll might not even be “Heath” at all, it may be a completely different character they invented to associate with the doll. Maybe their “Heath” is actually a transgirl named Mary! That’s some of the joy of toys - coming up with your own personalities and ideas for them. It’s what we did as kids, so why stop doing it now?
Ultimately, it’s their doll, their choice. If they can strip it down and customize it into a completely different toy (which is totally okay because they bought and paid for it, not you!), why are you getting upset about someone putting a removable piece of clothing on them? Putting Heath in a dress is a temporary thing, he’s still the same doll underneath. So why the big fuss?
The third and final part of my photo series, Boys in Dresses!
As I chose the outfits and wigs, I came up with some varying headcanons (a couple of which I mentioned in the captions), but feel free to come up with your own! Sorry for some of the hair messiness, I was running out of sunlight and had to work fast!
As I mentioned in the vampire-CAM post, while the vampires tended more towards the fancier, glamorous ballgowns, the Gargoyle boys (being a lot younger) tend more towards modern, lighter summer dresses! Also, Deuce and Jackson got in on the fun, being my only two ‘canon’ boy dolls at the time of the outfit selection! But I recently got Heath and Gil, so I’ll be working on a couple of outfits for them next!!
My latest photo series, inspired by all of the beautiful crossdressing boy dolls I saw on my friend Oak23’s page! (Some were his, and some were reblogs, so thanks to everyone for all of their pictures!)
I dressed up all of my current boy Monster High dolls in my childhood Barbie dresses; I’m so excited that my boys can wear Barbie clothes! It opens up a whole new world of fashion exploration for me!
For this set of four, I took Oak23’s advice, and dressed the vampires in older, gaudier ballgowns. Being several hundred (if not thousand!) years old, they’re more inclined to dress up in very fancy ballgowns, remembering fondly their years in the Renaissance or in royal court. I’m including my own little headcanons beneath each picture, but feel free to make up your own if you’d like!
Just a little photostory I came up with, while photographing my latest photo series: Boys in Dresses! Check out the captions for the story!
Many thanks to Oak23 for his inspiration to dress my fellas up so pretty, and to everyone else in the MH tag for sharing their fancy boy dolls, too! :) I think ‘boys in dresses’ may be my new favorite thing!
(An awesome brag, but it’s super late! I gotta apologize in advance - the Halloween card was actually timely when Spiderjewel sent it to me months ago!)
Look at all the beautiful goodies Spiderjewel sent me!!! (Including the super-cute G3 stickers seen above - LOVE THEM!)
Spiderjewel and I have a sort of longstanding trade going, where we buy each other random things that we can’t find in our local area, and we usually exchange them when she comes down to Disneyland in the summer! But since I missed her last summer, we decided to do it by mail this year!
Look at all these awesome goodies! She got me some Monster High magnets, the SDCC MLP exclusive poster from 2011 (which I really wanted!!), an awesome Pinkie Pie brush, some MLP hair clips, a rock (just kidding, I used that to weigh down the poster!), super-cute animal paper clips, the Euro-exclusive Ploomette two-pack (SUPER WANT), Rainbow Dash slippers, and a couple of cute G1 babies that I needed!!
Thank you so much Spiderjewel!!! <3 You’re so awesome! I can’t wait to send you my box, I’m just waiting on a couple last things to stick in there! I hope you’re just as blown away as I am! <3333
My Stuff Fur Fluff rewards came in, and I get a free plushie from Build A Bear! I’m thrilled beyond words!
… but Fluttershy doesn’t come out for another two weeks, and my coupon expires tomorrow.
Well, I guess I should make one! LOL! I’ve never done this before, but here we go!
My old goals were Toralei, Heath, and Gil, but since I managed to find those guys all in stores (somehow!!), that means it’s time for a new list!
So, here’s who I’m gonna be looking for:
- Holt Hyde
- Clyde Wolf (both of them to complete my ‘boys’ collection)
- Maybe Clawdeen? I wanna find a purple-haired one I really like.
- New CAM sets with molded hair (maybe)
- Equestria Girls: all but Rarity, deluxe Fluttershy, deluxe Celestia
- Pinkie Cooper?!! Am I into these?! But the friend all in purple is so cute…!
