Cosplay musing: the 2019 convention season
Well, the 2019 convention season is near, and with that, the eternal question: what costumes am I going to wear this year? That’s actually a really good question – and one I’m not entirely sure of the answer to. There’s a lot of factors that go into figuring out costumes for conventions: if Ross and […]

Things I Want to Make (when I finally get my craft room back)
Four more days until I move! Oh, you have no idea how happy this makes me. Not only will I not be limited to wearing whatever clothes I didn’t shove into vacuum sealed bags and toss into the treacherous cave that is the storage unit, I will also have access to ALL my crafting stuff. […]
Cutie Mark T-shirts: make your own!

Quick nerdy treat: General Zoi’s Pony Creator!
I won’t lie – I may have just spent a half hour making this little pony. While I should have been downing coffee and preparing for work. Her name is Raspberry. Don’t judge. For those of you of the pony persuasion, you can find General Zoi’s updated pony creator here – not only does it have […]

One of the things I’ve noticed as an emphatic collector of things that relate to my most loved fandoms is that my collections tend to evolve, especially the longer I end up in the fandom. When I’m building my collection, I tend to buy anything and […]
PopCon 2015: A Very Late Report
I have been so ridiculously busy lately that it’s not even funny. With two conventions within a month, and moving during one of those conventions, plus finally getting a full time position at IT Training (wooo!), I haven’t had much time to actually post about my fun experiences at Indy PopCon last month! So, here are […]
My Little Pony Build-a-Bear: When Good Manes Go Bad (or: how to fix a terribly messed up mane)
The original My Little Pony Build-a-Bear mane styling post is actually one of the most popular posts on my website, and because of that, I’ve had a number of people asking what to do if their pony’s mane is so horribly tangled that the only option seems to be to give said pony a little haircut. […]
Indiana Comic Con 2014: The Review
Last weekend, I went to Indiana’s first ever Comic Con! Held at the Indianapolis Convention Center (where Gen Con is held), Indy Comic Con promised to be a fun little convention. As it was in its first year, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I planned on having a fun time anyway […]
My Little Pony: Conventions are Magic! (and so are games!)
There is one thing I can definitely say about the My Little Pony community – they are INCREDIBLY friendly people. I’ve never noticed this so much as I did at GenCon this year. Now, as I’m sure most of you who know me know, or those of you who’ve been reading the blog for any […]
