Procrastinating on everything except the taxes. ^_~


This project is coming along nicely. I'm thinking of "Aikarin's Violet Enchantress" as her official name. Cheesy? LOL!!
Next one will have a more delicate look and a fan tail...I already started prepping the bait. Recently, I've been really inspired to make merponies. ^_^
I am also working on an eye-painting tutorial. With lots of tips like: how to paint those notorious eyelashes, gradient eyeshadow, shiny glass-like finishes, and all kinds of good stuff!

Oh, can't forget the auctions:
The eBay Moving Sale Continues
Everything started at $1 and this batch ends April 22nd. Pony related stuff includes: bait lot + a heap of hair, another MIP Star Catcher, MLP plush sewing patterns, Medley statue, Baby Nectar, G3 accessories lot. I combine shipping, so please take a look! ^_^
It's late & I work early tomorrow, so it's off to bed. Will reply to posts (including the ones from the last entry) when I'm more awake tomorrow.

Thank you! She's pretty hard to photograph...the iridescence looks better in real life. ^_^

Thanks for the comment. ^_^ The Midsummer contest is going to be a little later this year, since I'm moving at the end of June.
