FREE eBOOKs!

My friend is a new author and currently is offering her first two books for free in exchange for an HONEST review of them on amazon. Really, tell exactly what you think. Both books will be available soon in print as well.

You can find information about it here: https://plus.google.com/114244337345769131750/posts/ditAh1d69Rv

If you cannot contact her on Google+, please let me know and I will help get you in touch with her for your free copies.


"Lotus Petals" is a darker F/F romance set in Edo-period Japan, featuring a human courtesan who falls in love with her master’s vampire bride. This is a bit more serious book and the first in its series. 75k words.



"Goblin Fires" is a little bit more lighthearted, an urban fantasy adventure about a Goblin Knight who has been in love with her princess since the day they met, but must love her from afar, as a fae Princess would never be allowed to fraternize with a half-breed Knight. Also the first in its series. 65k words.

cuteosphere asked: I'm in the process of making a custom Queen Chrysalis and I wanted to ask what technique you used for making the holes in the legs of the one you were working on! Also what technique you used for the really cool wings :o

I drilled holes in her legs using a drill with varying small bit sizes. Go slow and let the bit cool from time to time, otherwise it just melts the plastic. Then I smoothed it as well as I could with sandpaper and an exacto knife. The holes weren’t quite smooth enough for my taste, so I used some apoxie sculpt to line them and smooth out the edges. Then I sanded everything down and painted her black.

The wings were done with wire, fantasy film, paint, and glitter. Though, I kinda regret the glitter. If I ever finish her, I might remake the wings with no glitter, or minimal glitter. There is a tutorial on how to work with Fantasy film in my tutorial section, on the right.

Memorial tattoo for Charlotte. Done by Matt O’Baugh at Black Cobra Tattoo in Sherwood, Ar.

Matt used the actual paw print I had taken of Charlottes paws in this design. It’s simple and I love it. The tattoo is only minutes old, and as it heals, he says there will be a better gradient between the white and black.

It would have looked better to reverse the black and white, and have black tips, but Charlotte was mostly black, so I needed this color scheme in her memory.

A while back I had a fundraiser for medical bills for Charlotte. It wasn’t determined what was wrong with her at the time. She took a turn for the worse not too long ago, resulting in more vet trips, eventually diagnosing her with lymphoma. She has since then been put to sleep.

I just thought I would share this memorial tattoo I got in her honor. Since you guys supported me during her first bout of vet visits, I figured some of you might like to know what happened to her.

Anonymous asked: What supplies should i use? Can you give me a list of the brand names? Thanks! :)

While I haven’t had the time to work on anything in almost a year now, these are the brands I have used and enjoyed.

Liquid Fusion - Waterproof urethane glue. Good for sealing reroots or repairing tears to vinyl.

Testors Dullcote - Spray sealant. The current label on this one might look different than pictured in the link.

Testors acrylic paint - Smooth paint that rarely needs thinned, but is hard to find. You can find Testors Model Master Acryl paints, which are very similar, but not quite the same.

Createx airbrush acrylics - another great paint that does not need thinned. These paints cure fully with heat. I have tried blow drying them finished job to try and heat cure the paint, but it doesn’t work well. The paint scratches easily, and should be left to dry a bit longer than average. They need to be sealed very well.

Deco Art, Triple Thick - Highly glossy, durable sealant. A little goes a long way. Do not touch it till it dries 100% solid. If you are doing it thick, apply it as fast as possible, with as little brush strokes as possible, or you run the risk of making it dry cloudy.

Poly Flake glitter - very fine glitter

Loctite Super Glue GEL - for gluing heads back on.

Aves, Apoxie Sculpt - two part air dry sculpting clay.

Mod Podge matte-mat - watered down only, to the consistency of milk. Makes a good brush on sealant,but it is NOT waterproof. Should not be used in humid climates, or applied on humid days. The pony it is used on should not be stored in a humid place. It can become sticky.  That said, I have had no problems with it personally, using it thinned down.

Paashe airbrush - I THINK this is the one I bought, but not sure.

Dremel - Mostly used for cutting needles for rerooting tools, but also has been useful in sanding larger Apoxie Sculpt projects.

Reroot tool - There are no brand names for these. they are most often hand made. I used to make and sell them, but I have not had the time for such things in a long while.

Doll Hair is tricky.. RetroDollsUS.com has the best service I have experienced, however, most of their stock is preorder only. DollyHair.com has a huge selection, but you risk your order being wrong, shorted, over charged, or never sent at all in the worst case. They have horrible customer service. But right now, they have the best in stock selection. I do not personally buy from them directly any longer. Order from them at your own risk.

Those are the main things, off the top of my head. Feel free to ask about something more specific if I haven’t listed it here. I will do my best to answer any and all questions :)

Anonymous asked: Hi I'm interested in buying some of your decorated ponies. However, I can't seem to find the ones for sale!! Would you be able to link me to a page where you have some up for grabs?! Cheers!

Hi, I am not currently creating any ponies, otherwise I would love to link you some to buy. A good place to look is on eBay, do a search for custom pony. Or check mlparena.com (I think that’s correct) and check the sales forums or customizers forums. A lot of time artists will sell there.

If anyone following this blog has custom ponies for sale, please reblog this post along with details of what you have for sale and where to buy it, so that Anony can find you and check you out!

If this uploads right, then this is how I reroot. Some people don’t seem to understand how I can use both the reroot tool and the knot method at the same time, so this is mainly for them. The hair is pretty secure and doesn’t need glue if you are gentle with it. It probably wouldn’t stand up to a kid playing with it though.

From here out, the updates will be long apart. This is the tedious time consuming part of rerooting.

1. Tie hair over your finger, you don’t want to make a comlete knot. Think of it like the first step you take when tying your shoe: over then under ;)

2. Pull the ends even, and taut.

3. Slide the reroot tool under the hair. The groove along the edge of your fingernail works well for this, but I often do it against my skin since I have a bit of a callus built up.

4. Place your fingertip over the tip of the needle so the hair doesnt, fall off.

5. Pull the hair down till the loop tightens around the needle, then hold the hair against the handle.

6. Keeping the hair held against the handle so that the knot doesnt slip off, position the needle against the hole so that the shorter tine of the needle, is pointed away from the neighboring holes. this minimizes the tearing that can happen with the vinyl when you reroot.

7. Push in gently.

8. Let go of the hair where you were holding it against the handle, and remove the tool. Gently pull on the plug of hair, till you feel the knot pull against the vinyl. If the plug comes out due to thinness, just tuck it in again. you don’t have to make a second knot in it. Just be gentle with it and dont pull it tight. You can always do a layer of glue inside if you need to later.

The trick is to make the plugs thick enough for the knot to hold, but not so thick that the hair comes out too thick in the end. Only practice and experience can help with this.

Reblogged this from my personal blog. This is how I reroot both ponies and monster high dolls. Hope it is useful for someone!

On eBay I am MylittleCustomPony but it has been a while since I have listed anything. I’m 6 months through my training period of my new job, with six months left to go. After six more months I should have time to start creating again.
