Pony ResourcesI'm routinely updating this post with new resources that people send me. So feel free to send me links to tutorials or other informational posts/deviations/links that you think might be helpful to plushy makers!Pony Resources2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been putting together a new list of pony resources over the last few weeks. It's been a while since I did the first journal post on the topic and unfortunately a lot of the original links went dead when BabyLondonStar deactivated her account. I also wanted to include some links for other non-eye and mark related things that I've found over the time I've been on deviantART.
There's a really cool tutorial by BeeZee-Art for making spiral plushie horns that I thought folks might like to see for their unicorns. I think you could also apply it to plushies where the horn is sewn in already, getting your needle in there might be a little harder though.
Once you've finished sewing your pony you may want to take
MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, keep checking back, as more characters and their colors will be added soon!)
MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib

The time has come to close the book on another year, and I don't want to waste your important partying time with a lot of jibba-jabba, but thanks everyone for another fantastic year! We got off to a bit of a rought start with things like Las Pegasus Unicon, Alicorn Twilight and Equestria Girls. But as time has gone on, as with most shake-ups and flare-ups, we adapted overcame, and perceived.
It's a wonderful thing being a part of this community. We have a new year of brightly colored candy horses ahead of us and...well, knows what is to come after that! I'm sure there will be more bizarre, unwanted developments (Rainbow Power is looking to be the next likely development!) but whatever comes I plan to still be here and hope you will be as well!
Thanks everyone for 2013. Now let's get out there and kick 2014's sorry butt!

WHEN YOU ALMOST MISS THE BUSOKAYWHEN YOU ALMOST MISS THE BUS1 month ago in Personal More Like This
TODAY THIS MORNING
MY ALARM CLOCK AS USUAL WOKE ME UP FOR SCHOOL.
TIME FOR SCHOOL. BUT I WANNA SLEEP MORE.
SO I FELL BACK ASLEEP.
USUALLY I SLEEP 5 MORE MINUTES AND THEN I WAKE UP AGAIN AND GET READY FOR SCHOOL SUCH AS PACKING MY LUNCH AND APPLYING MAKEUP.
BUT I SLEPT FOR 30 MINUTES INSTEAD.
I HAD 3 MINUTES TO GET READY.
IN 3 MINUTES MY BUS WILL ARRIVE.
SO I TURNED INTO RAINBOW DASH BY DASHING AROUND MY ROOM TO GET EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. SUCH AS MY PHONE CHARGER, PENCILS, AND MAKEUP.
BUT I TOTALLY FORGOT MY HOMEWORK THAT WAS WORTH MANY, MANY POINTS. BUT I THOUGH IT WAS IN MY BACKPACK ALREADY. BUT IT WASN'T.
I DIDN'T HAD TIME TO BRUSH MY HAIR, SO IT WAS A TOTAL MESS. I FORGOT THE HAIRBRUSH.
I DASHED OUTSIDE.
BUS WAS ALMOST READY TO LEAVE.
I RUN AND REACHED THE BUS.
FINALLY I'M AT SCHOOL.
A CLASSMATE ASKED ME FOR MY HISTORY HOMEWORK BECAUSE SHE FORGOT TO DO HERS, SHE WANTED TO COPY FROM ME.
I THEN OPENED MY BACKPACK TO FIND IT, BUT IT WASN'T THERE.

Me and George Harrison Part 1 So I decided to start a fan fic of me and George Harrison. Comment and tell me what you think! I'll probably do about 10 chapters or so.Me and George Harrison Part 11 year ago in Personal More Like This
School year 1960 I was in high school,12th grade, so I was a senior. I had a pretty nice first day, but it got even better when I met George. He had dark hair, cute British accent, and a nice face. He seemed to be quiet, like me, but sarcastic. He was dreamy. He was new at my school, and I tried to make sure he noticed me. We had English class together.
"Attention class! Your assignment today is to pick one person to partner up with and choose an important person in history. You will choose your partner today and choose your person to do the paper on. You may have to work at home with your partner, but I assure you, you have plenty of time." Mrs. Maureen said to the class. I was shocked and excited. I could not believe what I was hearing, this was the perfect chance to get to know George.
George sat at his

"YOU CAN'T EAT IN MY CLASS!"
*eats lunch during class*
"YOU CAN'T CHEW GUM IN MY CLASS!"
*chews loudly on gum while walking around classroom*
"YOU CAN'T SWEAR IN MY CLASS! WHAT DID YOU SAY UNDER YOUR BREATH?!"
*says "fuck" and "shit" all the time*
*talks over students all the time*
"RUN FASTER YOU LAZY KIDS!"
*eats chips and stands still during Gym class*
"STOP DRAWING IN MY CLASS!"
*doodles stuff while he/she's at their desk*
"IF I SEE YOU USING THAT PHONE ONE MORE TIME, I'M TAKING IT!"
*texts during class*
Of course, not all teachers are like this.
For example, if a teacher sees you doodling, they'll calmly tell you to put your drawings away. Alright! They didn't yell at you like if you were punching other students in the face.
I still remember when I was in 7th grade, my science teacher was looking through my binder; doing a "binder check", and you know what happened next? She saw my do
The REAL reason I hardly ever uploadOn top of being lazy and still looking for a job, I also realized that over the last year or so I have actually hated the shit out of drawing.The REAL reason I hardly ever upload1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It took me a surprisingly long time to figure this out!!
It kinda hit me when I realized that I would look for any excuse not to draw, how I would sometimes literally work on something for a few minutes a day and then go and play video games. It doesn't help that I'm obsessive compulsive, and often check over the same thing over and over again. I also save. MILLIONS OF TIMES. It's a serious problem, even back when I was like 8 I would save my pokemon file a crap load of times before turning it off.
Recently, I have been thinking about how important it is that you have fun while drawing. Lots of people have probably been through this, right? I will change my attitude towards drawing, and I'll try to have more fun and not get caught up in excessive planning. If you're having trouble drawing, then have a long hard think about who you're
