Further developments in the Geek Cave

When last we left our heros, they had managed to make the Geek Cave presentable for their housewarming party.  Presentable, but hardly finished...

Roomy: Is a collection room ever really finished?

Me: No time for philosophy!  To the Giant Ikea of Doom!  It's time to gather more shelves!

Roomy: Y'ok.

So off our heros trekked, and many hours later (many, many hours...who builds a store that takes up an entire postal code?) they returned home with two new shelves.  Let the shifting of the Geek Cave begin!

Roomy: Why is your Pony stuff in front of my MOTU stuff now?

Me: ...

Roomy: You're going to move that again, right?

Me: ...
Roomy continued to build Ikea shelves in the hallway while I relocated stuff in the Geek Cave.  Eventually, there was space for two new Billy bookshelves - one for playsets and one for more Ponies (replacing two sets of stacked cheaper bookshelves.)

Roomy: And my MOTU were freed again.

Me: They were fine.  They were having a great time hanging out behind another shelf.  Anyway, it kept them from throwing themselves off.

Roomy: Yeah, I need to do something about that.

And so slow progress continues to be made in the Geek Cave.  Join our heros again later in the month for Adventures in Holiday Decorating!

Roomy: Yay!

In honour of The Doctor's 50th anniversary, this week I present the final finished custom that I had at Geek Market a few weeks ago.  Last year at Geek Market I had a TARDIS pony.  This year, I decided to make a pony into the TARDIS.  Hence TARDIS 2.

She's had a full body repaint and been rehaired into appropriate colours.  Her eyes are a golden colour, to reflect her inner self.  And her symbol is the sign on the TARDIS door.  And yes, you can just barely read it.

Happy November 23rd, Whovians!

Hello friends,

I'm dragging myself back to the blogosphere after an unintended break of a few weeks.  Life seems to get busier and busier, and while I normally try to have some blog posts prepped and ready to go when I don't actually have time on the weekend to sit down and write them, this last burst of busy has, I'm afraid, caught me at unawares.  Time to get back into your regularly scheduled Pony blog.

I have been busy with some rehair commissions, a couple of pony commissions, a swap, and just general "getting ready for the Holidays" stuff over the last few weeks.  Part of that involves gettng the Geek Cave ready for the inevitable Holidays at Elfpony's House displays.  I haven't quite decided what form that will take this year, although I have a few plans beginning to take shape.  Pictures will be coming in December.
