The Doctor Is In

Here's the first of the customs I was commissioned to make for an xmas gift this year, the Eleventh Doctor.
11 was made from an Apple Split blind bag pony, with fez and bowtie sculpted on.  His hair, eyes, and symbol were repainted.  I'm so happy with how he turned out, and his new owner is too.

My Customs Album

I'm still slowly working on updating my new(ish) flickr account with pony pictures, including adding pictures of my older custom works.  To that end, I've added a page with a link to my customs album, so if you'd like to visit some of my older works please have a visit.

2015, A Collector's Year in Review

2015 was a big year in the Geek Cave.

I made huge strides toward actually finishing the project of cleaning and cataloguing my whole collection.  I'm well over halfway through the cleaning, photographing, and noting down conditions, and it seems like the project will actually, finally, be completed.
Photogenic Ponies
I added quite a few ponies to my collection, as well as several playsets, including the long-sought-after G2 Castle.  This year's Fair was, shall we say, productive.
And that's only Day 1!
This was also the year that I really added to my Snuzzle/Peachy and Twilight Sparkle armies.  If you'd asked me only a couple of years ago if I would ever have a pony army (let alone two), I'd probably have said no.  This is one of the things that fascinates me about collecting - how your collection tastes and preferences can change over the years, if you let them, and your collection grows and changes along with you.
Argie Snuzzle
I've also created several customs this year, which I'm very proud of.  There are many more that I'll be sharing on the blog in the upcoming months, and I hope you'll enjoy them as well.  Many were Christmas gifts and I'm looking forward to hearing how their new owners like them.
MGR Unicorns and Pegasi
In 2016, I hope to finally finish the cataloguing project. It's been a great way to enjoy my collection, piece by piece.
More Photogenic Ponies (and Dragons)
I don't generally go in making plans about which ponies I will try to get at a certain time.  However, I would very much like to add some more Nirvana Snuzzles/Peachys to the collection in the next year.  We'll see what else will comes of 2016.

Happy New Year!
