They started collecting apps Dec 01 and decisions were supposed to be announced Feb 01, but they extended the deadline and now no one will know until March 01. Either they didn't get as many applications as they thought they were going to get initially or they just didn't have time to process everything due to the holidays. My bet is the not as many apps as the cost per table went up and there are 3 different zone locations you can choose from w/the lowest being 1 table space (very very small) for an artist which is located way back in the back of the room where no one can see them. The other 2 zones are high end expensive location (which you see when you first walk into the Dealer's Room) and the next zone which is basically everything else.
I think the other problem they're facing is that Shore Leave (Star Trek) 36 is the exact same weekend (has been for 36-years) and a lot of people who attended both last year are going there this year as the costs for dealer setup is lower and its first come/first paid/first serve, easy parking/access, not to mention Otakon is the following weekend and Baltimore Comic Con is the 1st weekend in September. There were a lot of people posting last year after BronyCon that they wouldn't be attending the next one...so we'll see and I'm keeping my fingers crossed as this is how I'm not working a 'regular FT job' right now and this is how I make the extra money my family needs to live on/pay the bills.
You can always check the message boards and see if someone is looking to share a space, as if you only need 1 table and they only need 1 table, the space is definitely big enough to accommodate that.
It's pretty different honestly... with the chibi one, you're basically crocheting the whole body together. With this one, the body is crocheted as one piece, the legs are crocheted individually, and then it has a bit more of a neck to it. I am working on my patterns and hoping to list some more in my shop by mid November, but school takes up sooooo much of my time o_o.
This was actually the first piece of mlp fan art I ever saw (closet brony era for me), sent from a good friend of mine. I was still not nearly as happy as I am now... Suffice to say when I first saw this I *sqweed* from the cuteness. It was the most out of character thing my friend had ever heard from me. This is great, it is incredibly adorable. Do not stop doing this kind of thing it's fantastic! ^_^
Aw thank you so much! I can't believe this was the first you saw ^^ I'm quite flattered really. I haven't crocheted a pony in quite a few months now, since I taught myself how to sew (minky is sooooo soft...). I think I just might have to pick up a crochet hook in the near future and make a favorite background pony of mine ^________^.
Thank you ^^ I actually write my patterns out in symbols & numbers when I'm first making them, so they're a bit hard to interpret lol. That's part of the testing process XD making them readable in a standard format for crocheters.
Not right now because it hasn't been thoroughly tested yet. It might be available in my etsy in the future though . I have to find time to test it out more before writing it up and making a tutorial for it.
...how on earth do you make such cute things all the time? =;v;= and how in the world did you get the mane and tail to stay in place? it looks like latch hook, but it's so...it's too neat i guess? or maybe whenever I latch hook it just turns out like crap xD;;
