  1. I only know Artemis and Path (or know of Path). And Path gets it (flipped a coin).
  2. Yay you guys at the best! I told him that this idea would promote more donations. See dad? Now let's get down to business. The plan is to first nominate characters you want my dad to dress as. He gets to veto one and so do I. We'll keep this going until we have about ten or so valid picks, maybe more. Then we vote. The winning character will be what my dad wears to BronyCon, and does a complete vlog/blog series about completing it. I haven't decided if you guys will vote for the specific outfit or not. That will probably depend on the character. If I am being honest, it will be easier on me if I can create a Equestria Girls version out of the selection. There are some general rules here. This is MLP specific. My dad will at least have to be in cosplay at the con for four hours. My dad will attempt to stay in-character at the con. A vlog/blog must be posted every two weeks by my dad. If he misses a submission not due to health or act of Celestia then various challenges will need to be performed. Things like getting someone to take a photo with him, maybe even a costume change at one point. I'm open to suggestions for this one. Limited to three costume changes for the character. No infant characters pls thx No inanimate characters. Pets are okay I suppose. The cosplay has to be con appropriate. While I may try and make custom pieces, if I run into issues, we may wind up commissioning something. I'm thinking a hat or accessory like a staff or such. I'm never sewn a hat so while I can try, I don't want to be bashing my in head wasting fabric and such. Costuming, accessories, wigs, and makeup (if applicable to the character) will be specific to the canon character. Basically, I'm going all in on this hoping that it doesn't wind up looking like a train wreck. Ummmm. I think that's it. I can answer questions and such, or my dad can and he'll relay then answer. Also, he is being a great sport about this. I almost feel bad. Almost. I'll start. Fluttershy! Dad, do your thing to this post. @Jeric
  3. Of course it would be you to point out a flaw. If your friends here pick a character for the 2250 prize that doesn't have a singing role, the fairest solution is to do a second one. Maybe. It does complicate things, but if we end up doing two characters it really isn't that big of a deal. Let's cross that bridge when we get there.

    $500 - Stretch Goal Prize B - Donor Song

    Add me when you put names up!
  5. I'll let my dad add any artwork in here and stuff like that. So, @Jeric is my father. I remember that there was a plan to due a full cosplay event at Babs Con back in 2014 and a few of them got colt feet (pun 100% completely on purpose). A few of them, including my dad, decided to change things so that they would only have to cosplay in the gender-bent versions of their characters. The following year my dad took me and my brother to Babs. We both went in cosplay, and I was EqG Pinkie Pie. My father ended up bailing on his agreement of the plan to cosplay as Pinkie's Dad. So my father is going to BronyCon. I can't go since I'll be prepping for college at the time and need to save my money, but I can surely make my presence felt. Alright, revenge fueled daughter kidding aside, this is for charity. To entice you all to cross that next threshold, this is what I convinced @Jeric to do (feels weird calling him that). If we hit the $2250 goal, my dad will cosplay as any character we choose. You nominate the characters, staff and I will add some to round out a few, you vote on the picks, and I will design and put it all together for him. To keep this interesting, there will be no gender modification of the cosplay. If you pick Fluttershy then you best be sure he'll be in a sun dress. I'll probably go with the Equestria Girls designs as they are easier to assemble. Oh, and for those that will not attend BronyCon to witness this, Dad will be posting a regular blog about assembling the cosplay. There is even a hilarious add-on to this if you guys can break $2500, where Dad will have to record a music video in cosplay BEFORE the convention and ALSO will enter the Cosplay Contest that they have every year. Make this happen community! My preference, but don't let me sway you.
  6. Is there more family of yours than you and your dad at MLPF? Or liking these ponies in general?

    PS: Steven Universe is great! New episodes arc on dec 17th.

    Interesting, when you just replied to a topic 4 hors ago.


  7. I'm glad you are running this thing again. <3 ya Dad

  8. I have some ideas Dad. You are going to BronyCon, right? My favorite part of going to BABSCon with you was cosplaying as Pinkie. I think every self respecting fan should experience the joy of cosplaying as a show accurate character.

    You don't usually use most likely and then stick in a closing line about how that's just a theory. That is some superb incongruity you managed there. Most likely it is what it is. My mom died, their marriage was like this epic fairy tale, and she was a phenomenal mother and human being. it sucks all around. I dream of her too. I'm not a fan of it because ... it isn't real. She isn't alive. Seeing her, hearing her, it has to be a nightmare for my dad, knowing that it is just a dream and when he wakes up she won't be there ... for as long as he draws breath. That is what a widow or widower deals with. We have found a happy peace with things, but these little things like dreams and what have you, they tend to be ripples in the otherwise calm lake. I would have thought that would be the first thing people would jump to, not murderous wives and evil spirits. That is all kinds of ... I don't know what.

    Resource Map down, need specs

    This may help you out. It is a list of all the FAQ's on this forum. Some of it may be wrong or outdated. I think it is set at 150 x 150, but it is resized depending on where you are on the forum and what device you are using. This depends on the image. The system seems to take both. One is typically smaller in file size. I'll use my dad's post to explain. The red arrow is a member title. This is given to staff, former staff, and those that subscribe or donate to this place. The green arrow is your group name. Something about member groups. Normal members have one, staff have several, and subscribers have a few. These actually allow specific access or perks that are specific to the group. Mods have superpowers. Admins are OP, and donors/subs/and Retired staff get perks. New members start at Blank Flank permissions and as they post that group name changes to Muffin and then User (this used to be called Member ... strange). Each level adds more access to the place. That purple arrow that you see is rare. It was once supposed to be the name of the position of staff. In some cases people on staff have specific roles like head of IT, Newsletter, Public Relations. Overtime some also added some funny elements so it became a tradition. Some staffers keep the goofball role name when they retire from staff, like my dad did. Hearing the old man talk about this place for years helped me pick up a few things. Like Magical Kindergarten.

    Dad, this is weird giving you advice, but you know what Mom would say. Maybe you would feel better if you just allow the dream to continue. You know it isn't her, I know it isn't her, but I think that you have been doing that silly thing that you do ... in trying to be strong for everyone else you are ignoring yourself. You don't have to be you all the time.

    I don't believe that we have anything to worry about, all things considered. I'm actually trying to consider what the appropriate response here is. Even if you eliminate the fact that my father's post was written so that it was framed in the context of losing someone, I am trying to understand why you actually believe what you just stated would be good advice to give to someone. Bizarre, unproven, or faith based ideas are one thing, but when they become the genesis of really really bad advice that can prove harmful. Even if you didn't put two and two together and realize you just called a dead woman a possible murderer, you realize that you just told a stranger that you believe that his wife is out to kill him. Do you not see the danger inherent in this? I do hope these posts stand, so that anyone who comes here sees this exchange and marginalizes the concepts that you are pushing here, because they are dangerous (not to mention unscientific). You have shown me that you give advice that is more akin to a time bomb. Lucid dreaming is a curious and remarkable phenomenon, and you are effectively postulating a circus from laboratory.
