Hello! I am John Pickles and I'm a 20 something year old guy who likes doing artsy stuff and all that. I mainly work with customizing toys such as dolls and such, but here is where all of my pony customs are archived. I enjoy sculpting, modifying and painting these figures to look like particular characters and I'm always aiming to improve my skill set.

Not much more to say except remember that if you practice enough, you will train your hand, and in turn train the mind. I do hope I inspire others to create, customize and learn and I hope that you are inspired to create.

I don’t really have a story to tell about my very brief interaction with Andrea Libman. I had this giant Fluttershy to sell at PonyConAU thinking that full well that I probably wouldn’t meet the VAs and thinking someone else would buy her to get signed but she sat neglected all day.

But lo and behold, Andrea Libman was actually in the traders hall! And she was near my table! I grabbed Fluttershy, with the full intention of gifting her with this custom because no price compared to having the actual voice actress owning a piece of my work.

I awkwardly grabbed her attention and mumbled “Um, i wanted to give this to you” but Andrea Libman was so sweet and nice she couldn’t accept it, saying it was too much a gift for herself. So as a compromise I asked if she could sign it for me so she did with a good attitude.

And then I spent an hour swooning about how I got a signed Fluttershy figure to my friends.

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
:iconlunawaveplz::iconsaysplz:Here, sister!
:iconcelestiahappyplz::iconsaysplz:Fashionably late, I see! But just in time for the greetings to be given.
:iconlunashappyplz::iconsaysplz:Right! I'm ready. Three, two, one...
:iconcelestiawubplz::iconsaysplz:Happy Birthday!:iconsays2plz::iconlunahaplz:

:iconderpyhappyplz::iconsaysplz:With a muffin! Yay!:iconmlpmuffinplz:

:iconapplejackhappyplz::iconsaysplz:Remember your loved ones and friends, an' don't let little things an' worries get you down! 
:iconspikethinkingplz::iconsaysplz:We hope that you'll find all you seek and be the best you can be!

:iconrarityjoyplz::iconsaysplz:Don't forget to respect yourself! You're the best at being you, so stay true to what you really are!

:iconflutterpweezeplz::iconsaysplz:And we hope that you'll be at peace with yourself, too... and that the year ahead will be peaceful for you.

:iconpinkiewinkplz::iconsaysplz:And throughout all that, have fun! It isn't fun if you don't have any, after all, and fun it should be!

:iconpinkiepartyplz::iconsaysplz:Just like today! Party on!
