Hi

Sorry everyone for the very, very long absence.

I've been feeling nostalgic and wanting to sew plushies again.

Does anyone do commissions anymore? What with the cheap and decent mass produced plushies available now. 

At any rate, I apologise for being gone so long and not replying to any messages or comments. 
And I have passed with 2:1 (equivalent is a B) in Television Production! Now to find a job!
Please check out the Indiegogo for my film 'Shoot on Sight'. Even donating £1 will help us greatly.

Help a fellow brony out?

Sun Mar 9, 2014, 11:37 AM
Hey everyone,

I'm currently making a short film for my final year project at university. It is called 'Shoot on Sight' an is about a man who returns from war a hero trying to hide a guilty secret that will tarnish his reputation.


It is going well so far, but to make it even better I need your help! We need to have a budget to make this film, pure and simple. We need to be able to pay actors, get locations and buy or hire costumes and props. Unfortunately this film can't be the best it can be without some form of budget. This is where you guys come in.

The best thing you can do to help us is to donate toward my film here. You'll get perks from each donation, even giving £10 will mean you get your name in the end credits and a weekly update e-mail. I'll b heading up the weekly e-mail, and trust me, they'll be pretty nifty. If you can only donate £1, that still brings us one step closer to our goal.

Even if you can't donate anything at all, you can still share our Indiegogo page, or like our Facebook page. Help spread the word!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, please get involved!



For a while at least.

As some of you may know, I am in my last year of uni and I am already finding it hard to balance sewing and studying. After Christmas my work load is going to increase dramatically and I really need to focus on my education above all else.

I still might do the odd commission here and there if I feel I can manage them, but I don't won't to take on too much and end up disappointing people. I also have a load of other sewing projects that have been put on hold for months that I would love to be able to start.

After I finish uni I may very well start up again, but this is also dependent on whether or not I can find a job.

I don't think I will give up making ponies until the fandom truly dies and I hope that I will be able to re-open commissions eventually.


Neopets!

Fri Sep 27, 2013, 7:54 AM
I started playing this again after so long D:

Anyone else play it? Neofriend me if you like, my name is Arualsti on there too

I feel really tempted to start making some Neopet plushies 


Commissions closed again

Mon Sep 16, 2013, 1:13 PM
You lot are keen

Commissions Open!

Mon Sep 16, 2013, 12:59 PM
Yay! Finally!

Please make sure you have read my commission rules/info on the front page before commissioning me.

Please note me to commission me!


Commissions opening soon, are you excited? I am!

Firstly, stickers! I asked what freebies you'd like with plushies, turns out it was stickers, so here is what you can expect.

Secondly, I am really struggling to find the right colour fleece for Applejack plushies, the colour I have is too dark of a shade for her, but I can't seem to find the right shade anywhere. My first Applejack plush had more or less the right colour, but since then, that shade is seemingly impossible to find in the UK. I've ordered something that might be okay from a shop in Taiwan, but please keep in mind I currently don't have a good Applejack fleece colour right now. Minky is still okay.

Lastly, I am going to be away for a few days tomorrow, don't worry, i'll be back by Monday!


Some info about trades!

Sat Sep 7, 2013, 3:16 PM
Had a couple of questions about trades, so I thought i'd clear some thing up

What I don't trade for:
-Art (at least not right now)
-Official MLP merch (not a massive fan of what is currently available)

What I do trade for:
-Custom figures (especially of my OC or Octavia)
-Stitch or Angel (from Lilo and Stich) plushies. I collect these more than anything else, and would LOVE any rare/large ones, especially of Angel, as I only have 2 of her! 


Heavily discounted giant plushie

Tue Sep 3, 2013, 10:08 AM
Found a buyer, thanks!

Is anyone interested in commissioning a giant pony off me before my commissions open, at a heavily discounted price? I do not have an example of my massive 2.5 foot sized plushies and I cannot justify making one for myself without being sure someone else will want one. The catch is obviously that I have no example of what it will look like until it is done, and you will have to collect it from me either at London Film and Comic Con, MCM October, Series 4 premiere meet in London, or at any meet in Southampton, Bournemouth or Portsmouth. Prices for this heavily discounted plush will start at 80, which is about 30 off what it will be at full price.


Commissions reopening soon

Tue Aug 27, 2013, 4:39 AM

Commissions will be reopening Monday 16th September at 9pm BST (8pm GMT)

I will accept 10 commission slots then close my commissions again.

The prices below are a guide line, I will make an official price guide when I reopen commissions

Beanies ponies - 12

Fleece ponies - 35

Minky Ponies - 43-56

Giant ponies - 120-150

If you have any questions, please ask!

Brony forums

I am always looking to join in great forums, I really do love interacting with bronies from around the world, just like how I do with all of you, my lovely watchers

Are any of you members of brony forums? I'd love for you to share some great ones I can join to get to know other members of the brony community.

If anyone else is looking for great forums to join, I am currently quite active on these forums, and i'd definitely recommend checking them out

bronyawakening.forumotion.com/ - Brony Awakening is quite small and pretty wacky, but I have made some really great friends through it

ukofequestria.co.uk/ - UK of Equestria is mainly full of UK bronies, but they accept and love members from all over, been on there for just over a year, and I love it!

I'm heading off on my holidays tomorrow, and i'll be gone for a couple of weeks. Nice to have a break from sewing!

I might be able to check my messages whilst I am away, but probably not reply, so if you leave a comment or note me I might not reply for a while

See you all soon!
It has been confirmed! I will be a vendor at this years BUCKcon in Manchester! I am so excited :D

This years BUCK will be on the 23rd-25th of August in the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. I'd highly recommend coming (not just because i'll be there) it is the biggest MLP convention in Europe and will surely be a weekend full of awesome stuff to do. John De Lancie aka Discord is already a confirmed guest of honour. Here is more information www.buckcon.org/

Back to me now. I'll be there selling plushies (both minky and a cheaper fleece variety), more beanies than you can shake a stick at, and a butt load of cross stitch keyrings. I'll also be making a very special plushie to raffle off.

I was also considering offering some Build-a-Bear pony mane replacements. With any hope they'll have released the second wave of plushies by then (which is rumoured to be Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy). Apparently last year at BUCK, all the of the plushie vendors sold out before the majority of the con goers could enter the building. I really don't want to disappoint anyone so i'll be making a huge amount of stock over summer, just as soon as I finish all outstanding orders

I'll also be sharing a vendor table with the lovely and talented :iconmaia-soara:, so make sure you check her out and give her art some love.

I really hope to see some of you there, come over to my table and say hi!

Ordered a full sized pony commission? READ THIS

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 20, 2013, 5:28 AM
This is to let anyone who has ordered a full sized pony commission off me that I will no longer be making it. University has kept me hugely busy and hugely stressed and piling on extra stress from making plushies has not been helping me. I will be still making beanies, if you commissioned them.

I will open a much smaller  number of commission slots around Easter time, and I will give first priority to anyone whose commission was cancelled.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and I have been debating cancelling them for a long time, but I really need to give priority to my University work.
