Here is a pony I made for a swap on another site. We made G1 ponies using the new g4 ponies.  This is Surprise and I made her using a Fluttershy.

Yes, I will be doing the same to you Hyper-Piston!  I just have to survive the weekend . (Roller derby league hosting regional tournament.) 

And she sold that Rainbow Dash fur suit on e-bay for, I think $6000.

She has really amazing tutorials for dollhouse miniatures and offers new ones once a month!

That site just ate a hour or so of my day.  So many great tutorials.  I really liked the tutorial on making furniture with mat board if you are going to paint it. Just amazing!

I have just finished all the painting for the outside but now I kinda hate the colors I chose.  I think I may need to darken them up. Or maybe change them out altogether. But I already have my window frames glued on. *sigh*  Well I did start this thinking it would be a long term project.

Cheesy I live in Hillsboro! If you don't mind my asking, where do you work at?

I work at the Intel Ronler Acres campus.  It's the big one with all the construction work and giant cranes, although I work in a building on the other side of the campus.

Yeah I found a bait one for 50cents the other day. Its barnacle. His hair is frizzed with  rot. His cutiemark is rubbed off a little, as is his eyes. And he has marker on him. So...that's why I am gonna make him otherwise. But what I saw on Ebay, he's decently easy to find and not too expensive.
I have rerooted and customized ponies before :3 I just don't want to just go buy just a hank for him and thats all. Money is too tight to buy more than that right now until all the bills are paid this week :3

Wow, lucky!  They are so hard to find to bait but it sounds like you got a good candidate.  And a decent Barnacle can run anywhere from $15 to $30 or so without any accessories. And getting a truly bait worthy Big Brother can cost $10 from other customizers.  So good job!

And yay for more people joining.

i am all excited now! I may make a g1 big brother into a Big Mac if I can get ahold of some dirty blonde hair before signups are over XD

Do you have an actual baity big brother?  They are kind of hard to find in bad condition and all of the big brother's are worth a bit of money.  I would suggest to anyone making a custom pony (G1, 2, or 3) to do some research before hand. You don't want to destroy a valuable toy. Or just post here and someone will help you out.

As for hair for customs you'll want to check out www.dollyhair.com/mlpnylonhair.htm  This is the same hair Hasbro uses.  It might take a week or so to get your hair so order as soon as possible once you know what you need.  For a FIM pony one hank is more than enough. For a G1 one hank might be enough if you don't make the hair very long.  You can get hair other places (dollar tree kids wigs for example) but if you want to color match exactly then Dollyhair is the way to go.

Questionnaire sent. My husband it just going to shake his head at me Smiley  I just finished a custom pony swap on another site.  (We turned G1 ponies into G4 ponies using the new FIM single ponies.)

If people want to try custom ponies for the first time there is a lot of information out there about how to do things and where to get supplies but I will be happy to answer questions or point you in the right direction for more info.

lvl0rg4n reminded me that this exists on the Wee House craftalong so I though I would pop over.  I would love to get together with other crafty people. I work M-F until 5pm in Hillsboro but I live in SE.  Most weekends around now are free but I start losing weekends once the local roller derby season starts (I referee.)  Wednesday nights are also out for me due to derby practice.

So I went to the Michael's near the airport yesterday to pick a house up. (Thanks for the tip about which Michael's in Portland had them!)  I of course never start with easy things do I picked up the more ornate three story Victorian dollhouse (although not the fantasy one as I am not that insane.)  I got it all punched yesterday and dry fit together. I then took it back apart and have started staining and painting pieces.  

I do want to go steampunk workshop with mine so I thought the Victorian house would make more sense.

My one question is what scale are these houses are?  1/2" scale? or smaller than that?
And what scale is the furniture?  I would have picked that set up but they didn't have any.

And I will totally use that brick tutorial for my chimney.

[Edited to add]
I looked around on line at some dollhouse sites and they were saying these are close to 1/2" or 1:24 scale.
