Fan Expo Canada 2014 is happening RIGHT NOW and our very own Princess of the Night/fashionista/apple matriarch/derpy pegasus is there!
When Tabitha St Germain says “Jump” you say “How high?” and hope the answer isn’t The Moon!
The Ice Bucket Challenge is a cool thing, quite literally. It does my heart good that so many folks are using it to raise awareness AND much needed funds to fight ALS, which I’ve always simply known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. It makes me a bit sad that there are a few folks who have picked up on it as more of a trend than a way to raise money for a deadly and debilitating illness. Videos with folks just kind of showing off and having fun while hardly (or not at all) mentioning the impetus behind it or the need to follow up challenges with donations.
Nicole Oliver, the lovely and majestic voice of Princess Celestia did done dood it right this weekend at BronyCAN, raising $1000 for ALS! When she told me what she was planning I offered to make a picture for the auction and event. I also made one more donation on top of the previous couple. Because if you’re going to roll with the Princess of Equestria, you gotta up your philanthropy game!
If you’re up to Princess Celestia’s challenge, then visit http://www.alsa.org/ and please make a donation. $5, $10, $1000 it doesn’t matter. Every bit helps.
Cutie Mark Crusaders Professionalism GO!
I don’t want to alarm you, but if you’re not in British Columbia for BronyCAN this weekend, then you’re missing out on the chance to meet the incredible Veena Sood, voice of everyone’s favorite Element of Professionalism, Ms. Harshwhinny!
It’s okay if you can’t make it though. I’m right there with you, being a bit tuckered out after attending so many cons this year already. At the very least my art will be there. Veena will be signing these at her table, along with any other Harshwhinny swag you’ve got on hand!
I was able to bring a number of amazing works from amazing artists home from GalaCon last weekend. But not nearly as many as I would have liked with unlimited packing space! One of my favorite pieces of the weekend was this gorgeous Maud Pie statue from MoondropStar!
The pictures just don’t do it justice- beautiful sculpt and casting and definitely an example of pony art I will treasure long after my days in horse fandom!
