Eyepatch is the best.


Latest Pony Mod

This was initially supposed to be a Red Bull pony, but things got out of hand. I wasn’t so sure how she ended up with wings.

When I expressed my consternation over this development to J., he said simply, “Red Bull gives you wings!”

Fan Art (No, this is not my work!)

August 27, 2008

Someone has apparently created a pony mod based on Jay Lake’s novel, Mainspring.

I’ve seen a lot of mods inspired by movies and television characters, but I think this is the first I’ve seen inspired by a book.

Mod of the Week

August 15, 2008

I’m thinking to keep the original “sparkle” plastic eyes with this one, which is a first. For the Nyx pony, I painted over the eyes. I’m also wondering if I should do wings.

But, until then, this is about how they all start. In the background, you can see what will soon be my Red Bull pony.

I am an uber 80s girl geek, aren’t I?

Prepping for Autumn

August 11, 2008

Had to wear a jacket to work this morning. Just a tad brisk. Autumn is coming, and then winter. And there’s nothing better for the sanity than lots of projects. So I picked up a $25 craft table today!

Pony mods are back!

Have I mentioned how much I’ve gotten done since that free WoW subscription ran out?

Another Kind of Mod

January 19, 2008

Someday, I will be able to afford to put together my own gaming computer. And on that day, my friends, my modding skillz will finally be appreciated by pony aficionados and gamer geeks alike.

Lo, on that day…

Should I sign up my pony mods for the Wiscon art show?

I’m wondering if people would actually pay for any of these, you think? I don’t want to take up space that’d be better suited to more talented artists. It’s a tough room.

Been thinking about it.

It must be winter….

Stephanie thinks my pony mods should be more “brutal.” Brutal takes a lot more work, as it turns out. Isn’t that always the way? Pretty and fem is easy. We have a script for pretty.

But I’ll see what I can do.

As an aside, Jenn once asked me if there were any black or brown My Little Ponies you could actually buy off the shelf. I had to think about it a minute, and consult my collection… and you know what?

There aren’t.

Blue, green, purple…. and white, of course.

But black and brown?

Good luck.

Another reason to make my own.

Because when it gets cold and dark, you can only spend so much time at the gym, working on your French, or writing.
