Mainly I just wanted to make a small peep.. I"m still alive.. barely. And apologize to those waiting on stuff from me/the shop. We're-a-workn! and I want to get to rp stuff OTL But for this month I might not be able to. I've got a colossal back up at Cauldron all of a sudden, two AX costumes to finish before the end of the month, and a sudden freelance writing job that popped up about the same time. I've been doing my best to partition time for each thing, but I also have home life stuff to handle/deal with every day that only leaves me so many working hours eve;; (I'm seriously trying to loose my chubs before I cram myself into costumes, so that takes up a decent amount of time too. ug)
At least once AX is over, THAT will be done with and things should run more smoothly for sure...
so.. please cheer me on until then OTL *dies*
smol helluROfl.. old journal was old... though not surprising.
uh.. other than continuously working on making Cauldron better and better.. I've just basically been rolling in my own anxiety as of late. Been kinda sucking in many areas of life.. eve;; but am alive?
man I want to redo the skins on this journal though... OLD SKIN IS OLD oTL
otherwise... back to cauldron stuff 8'D
spring gacha is up and we just updated the Super Rares with a new one (since it wont be going as long as the winter... just gunna change this one out as we go eve; )
its an item that grants the ability to change out any one ingredient in an ash to something HQ of your choosing. Not even myo get the option for HQ o3o~~
I hope I get some time eventually do draw more personal characters.. I have some that I've rped for a while now but have no representation, and then some newer ones I'm kinda excited about xD
also need to get working on my cosplay progress for AX this year..
Help me name Mommy Bat! YEI~!
So I finally heard back from Bats QLD. Since I sent my own personal sponsorship and then the one we raised at The Cualdron, they offered me a special opportunity to sponsor a Mommy and Baby bat pair. They always try to save the moms too if they are around ;u; <33
So of course I said yes!
Dea and I already decided on Tai for the baby 8'D *shot*
but now want the community's help in naming the mommy since its only possible because of you guys <3
Please comment bellow with any suggestions and dea and I will pick the one we like the most tonight and send it to them <3~~~
Usually we announce before hand when things will go on sale... but this is d
wen-m's patreon . JUST DU ITWell.. Ram is functioning steadily now since my last journal. *whew*
Which is probably obvious by the Cauldron activity 8D
Anyways, wanted to take a moment to spread the word for a friend.. which I'm sure you all know of eve/
wen-m started a patreon and we would love if you could support him, even if its just a few dollars! He's going more into his ever popular angel and demons series, working on a new big and fantastic project called Rosegladia (so many pretties) and lots of other awesome things. But he can't go all out like he longs to until he has enough support ><~!
Support if you can!! or at least spread the word <3
*slow tear* rip ram*sobs*
For the past week and a half I've have random BSOD (blue screen of death) , even loosing all design progress on one cauldron growth.
After getting all sorts of diagnostic softwear and number tracking.. I narrowed the issue down to being MEMORY related.. so I ran tests on HD, external HD and ram.. the only time it seemed to tweak out was when the external was in use. So I figured it was that. Buu. well. It -is- old as balls. So I unplugged it and went about my business.
Then it crashed again thsi morning. UUUUUG. My cat chose the most ungraceful way to dismount my lap and bumped into it so I figured urg. Maybe something was loose. Unplugged everything, opened it up, made sure everything was connected, took out the ram, put it back in to make sure it was secure.. Then went to start it back up.
Went into the motherboard bios.. and notticed it wasn't 'overclocking' .. which I dont think I really am, but I have to set it up like such to get both ram to be used. So I figur
Raffle~~~:iconthecauldron: is having a raffle for the next week~
The prizes are:
Which will create an ANIMATED character in the theme of the goddess Aphrodite!
It will have two outfits; a more human one and a full on godly one~ There's also a chance for powers, items, or weapons without the use of addons.
1/2 of a Stage 2 growth of any sort.
We're hoping this will be useful for some that can't afford the stage 2 usually ;u;/
Some recent growths:
Solo adopts that I still have open:
Adopt: Cute Monsters2 [open]-flat sale by furesiya
Another speed paint + new costumeI did some recording of
Hope its slightly interesting/amusing to at least a few -u-~
also sorry to most of my watchers.. allot of my work has been and will be adopts.. I really need to make what money I can and 'commissions' just wasn't doing it. Not that adopts are booming, but at least there is more demand for them. I wish I could do more personal works.. and I hope to at least try to do so from time to time still Q3Q
In other news, I'm making another costume 8'D For halloween this time (going to Disneyland halloween pty next week with GoingBrinanas ) We're making Fairy designs of Rapnuzel and Jasmine! We're aaaaaaalmost done.. I just need to do some dye/paint work and then fix my crap amazon wig 8'D
this is my design~~~
bri took some shots as we made the wings~ I need to secure mine a bit more but then good to go OuO
MasqBesides the quick chara 'sheets' lately, the main project I was working on was my costume for the Labyrinth ball in LA. Due to not having a computer for almost 3 weeks.. I definitely had time to dedicate to it -u-;; which is good cause I am a sloooow ass craftsman..
The 'masq' its self was sort of boring.. Only really interesting thing was seeing the other costumes. The whole event had to change venues a few weeks before so they were definitely a bit scattered. But over all the 'shows' were mostly like.. interpretive dance? Which is nice and takes skill, but not what I was expecting. Also I didn't see anything -Labyrinth- related at all. It was all just 'fantasy'. Even the 'goblins' for the goblin stage were D&D style goblins rather than jim hensen/labyrinth ones. And I dont dance. Or drink. So.. there wasn't a whoooole lot to do xP
probably not something I'll do again any time soon, but it was still something to tick off the life list of things to do.
Someday I'll take the time to
Comp died Mreh... So I made a new one MREHSoooooooooo for the past few weeks, I've been computerless. My motherboard just up and died...
I was hoping to get a few more years out of that comp.. but seems like it wasn't meant to be.
I then embarked on a journey I sort of wanted to avoid.. Building my own.
I got the best parts I could afford and with the help of my brother in law, managed to make it work somehow! I'm impressed I managed it, in all honesty x'D I was more than intimidated, but once I started learning what was what, it wasn't such cryptic magic anymore.
So yeah.. all this time I only had phone and tablet.. and still let my messages get out of hand.. I'll have to get to them x'D...
It also put Cauldron and most art things on hold, and will be in general for a bit more since Dx33x is coming to visit soon. But I did do some real media stuff here and there, and also am working on a costume for the Labyrinth masq in LA this month. I have on week to finish @ u@;; wish me luck.
But yes. New computer GET! And I

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amus
