MLP Fair Needs Artists and Customizers!!

I’m working hard to get this year’s My Little Pony Fair planned and organized and I need your help. This year’s volunteer Fair Staff is small due to some needed reorganization, but we have many amazing collectors who have stepped up to man games, contests, and events. As July nears, it is clear we need a few more hands to make this event the best it can be! We are looking for a few interested people to fill the following roles:

Digital Artist/Graphic Designer
The Fair staff is in need of someone who can head up artwork to be used in promotion of this year’s My Little Pony Fair. Basically, this person will need to produce digital art and graphics (specifically ponies) to be used on things like banners, pamphlets, badges, and other items for the Fair. Pony templates will be provided. Even if you are not able to attend this year’s event, we’d still love your help if you are interested!

We have a few plans up our sleeves this year and need the talents of an experienced customizer (or customizers) to pull them off. I can’t share everything here as it is a secret, but if you are up for making 5 pony sized customs for a Fair display (supplies will be provided) please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read. Remember, even if you aren’t able to attend the Fair this year we’d still love for you to be involved!

Please email if interested.

Want to Give a Presentation or Demonstration at MLP Fair 2010?

Are you an expert on alternant Birthflower Ponies? Do you know the ins and outs of buying ponies from foreign auction sites? Maybe you know all there is to know about MLP pamphlets, stickers, or comics? Can you make awesome pony themed jewelry?

The MLP Fair staff is looking to add a few demonstrations and presentations to our 2010 schedule of events. If you are planning on attending this year’s 2010 My Little Pony Fair and would like to be considered to be added to the program to share your knowledge or talents with other collectors, please email and submit your presentation idea. You will need to include your real name, MLPArena or MLPTP board name, a detailed description of what you would like to present, your experience in that area, and what you will need for your presentation (projector, document camera, copies for handouts etc.) If you are thinking about doing a demonstration, a photo of a finished product is appreciated so we can get an idea of your finished product. Presentations and demonstrations should last 15 to 30 minutes in length. All presentation and demonstration ideas will be considered.

Thanks so much for helping us make the My Little Pony Fair an awesome event for collectors!

Totally 80s!

So I'm going to an 80s themed party this Friday and I'm really looking forward to it. Given that my friend who is hosting the party also collects My Little Pony and her husband is a huge MOTU collector, I have a feeling this party is going to be a blast! Sadly, I've been so busy that I haven't had time to figure out what I'm going to wear. I don't have any acid washed jeans with the zippers and bows at the bottom in my closet and sadly, I don't own a hair crimper and I'm all out of banana clips. I might have to hit the thrift stores tomorrow night after work and hope I find the equvilent of this:

Wish me luck!

Where are all the Ponies?

I have several buy one get one free manufacture coupons for My Little Pony single ponies and they all expire this Thursday. I keep checking my local stores for something new on the shelves, but alas, nothing! I figured at the very least I'd be able to find the New Look g3s with those little skirts. I was wrong. I think that Hasbro is deliberately waiting for the coupons to expire to ship out new stock.

I'm literally blown away by some of the entries I've received for the My Little Pony Fair Design-A-Pony Contest. I can't wait for the last few to trickle in over the next few days! You all are awesome!

I also feel like I should address the emails I've been getting that basically ask me this: "Please, please, please tell me if I won the Design-A-Pony Contest because I'm not going to the MLP Fair and don't want to find out after other people know."

There have been several emails of this nature and this is what I have to say to them.

The point of this contest is to have the winning design revealed at this year's Fair as a Fair event. It is a contest organized by MLP Fair staff for the Fair. While we did open up submissions to all Fair attendees and US residents (including those that have no intention of attending this year's event), the winning design will be revealed at the Fair, not before. I apologize to those of you who are dying to know if you've won and feel somehow wronged by not notifying you before the winner is revealed and hopefully, if you do win, all will be forgiven when you get your giant 2 foot tall My Little Pony prize delivered to your home.

In case your curious, I managed to get all my report cards filled out and one of my papers completed so far. That helps me feel a little more on top of things and a little less crazy.

Have a great Easter weekend everyone!
