Ginger Ale posted a topic in FiM Show DiscussionWhen I watched the latest episode I immediately recalled a fan-made sfm video that was made last year. I rewatched it again and they are pretty parallel to each other. Do you think this fan-made video became official? Do you think Hasbro asked permission to use the story? What is your idea?
Another day, another entry, hmm? Well, that's what it seems like to me. How've I been? Oh, I've been alright. Staying up 'till 3AM working on assignments, getting into fights with chatroom "friends", and all that good stuff. Do I get a break? Yeah, sometimes. The cover for today was originally going to be a picture featuring a before and after photo of my collection since being a brony, but I'm going to leave that for October 15th, and for those who read "Grand Theft Applejack", will know that's my anniversary. Go me! You can expect a photo of the collection on that day. Anyway, today's story is about pony mane styling. Now let me get this off my chest, I have a high respect for whoever can style hair. Sure, I don't like it when people touch my hair, but for those talented folks who can whip up something amazing with nothing more than a couple of combs and a pair of scissors, I tip my stat-track fedora for you guys. THIS ONE'S FOR YOU! What's the first thing you do when you buy a brushable Pony doll? Criticize the bad packaging, seriously! Hasbro is the only big company who still can't pack their crap! Ahem, I'm getting off topic. The second thing you do when you buy a brushable? Hide it from your par- I mean, style the mane, probably. For those who hold pride in their collections, you're willing to go the extra mile to make sure your pony dolls are looking their best for your neighboring haters and disapproving fathers. I try to be the most "collective" brony a brony can be, (collecting merch, t-shirts, bedwear, stickers...) so I make sure my ponies are ready for the gala. The catch is that I can't style hair for crap. But I don't give up! And being oblivious, I of course turned to Youtube, your daily dose of bad memes, commentary channels and, in my suggestions, terrible pony-tubers. (WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE? UGH! They move ponies around a camera and make bad puns! UUGH! the mane styles are nice though.) So I embarked on a journey to find the most informative, english-speaking, gentlecolt who could teach me his ways of conditioner. I found him about two minutes later. Turns out, it's like real hair with the exception of large clumps of glue stuck in both the mane and tail. Knowing me, I don't have a glue remover, so I just try to cut out what I can without leaving the mane maimed (they don't grow back). One of my biggest fails this year has to be in this moment; the moment where I'm scrambling around the house looking for the tiniest rubber bands man-kind has ever conceived. It took a good ten minutes, but I eventually resorted to pulling a few strings out of my dental cabinets. Y'know, I was supposed to apply these rubber-bands for braces, but I never got around to it. I guess they went toward a better use. . . pony dolls. All in all, I think the mane styles went fairly well. I had bought two ponies (both Explore Equestria standard brushables), Starlight Glimmer and Applejack, and even though I copied everything the tutorial said, I believe I can rightfully be proud. After all, spilling conditioner on an expensive laptop while trying to perform major rubber band application is a pretty challenging feat. So what did I learn from all of this? If you need hair bands for ponies, ask your doctor. Tell them it's congenital. -RealityPublishing
So a little while ago I picked up my Fluttershy plushie from Build a Bear. Oh my, I love her so much she's so cute and cuddly . She's my favorite piece of my entire pony collection, partially because she's Fluttershy, partially because of the BAB heart ritual + birth certificate, and partially just cause she's so snuggly and adorable and soft and wonderful! She's therapeutic too, and I cuddle with her every night and she has completely cured my insomnia I've had for the past year or so. There is a bit of a problem though. Her mane quite regularly becomes a frizzy mess (especially with such a high level of cuddling) and I must brush her frequently to keep her looking good, and more importantly I worry that if I let it go for too long without a brushing it might form some irreversible matting. At the same time though I'm worried that frequent brushing will eventually weaken the hair and it might start breaking. I certainly don't mind taking the time to keep her mane in good shape. The 8 hour sleeps I've been getting are more than worth it, but I don't want to be doing any kind of damage to her mane either. So I'm wondering if anyone has any hair care tips to help prolong the life of her mane and keep her from becoming a frizzy dread-locked rastashy (not that that wouldn't still be adorable, haha). I'm sure others have had the same problem, so if people want to share any tips they have for taking care of their Build a Bear plushies, whether through household products or otherwise that would be so awesome . EDIT: I did a bit of research and learned some tricks that can be done with household products, which worked really well. Her hair was a frizzed up tangled mess this morning and looks great right now. I'll probably update this post next time I do it and take pictures as I go
So, I wanted to find a topic like this one to post this in, but wow, I didn't find one I only found "I need help finding a good shampoo/aftershave" and a topic called "do you use shampoo?" In any case, shampoo is a vital part of hair care; you don't want mucky, dirty hair, do you? Although, you must keep in mind that using shampoo that gets your hair absolutely greaseless will be a horror to fix when you get up to get ready to go in the morning and you have to style your hair That's why, and pardon me if I sound like I'm coming directly off of a bad infomercial here, I use Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree extract shampoo Honestly; it gets the job done well enough to keep your hair nice and clean, while leaving the perfect amount of natural grease in their to make it easy to maintain; to top it off, it's got a fresh, sort of minty smell to it that's not overpowering in the slightest, but still has an alluring aroma strong enough for you to be able to smell it It's a bit pricey at around $20 bucks a bottle, but it's really only sold at the local salons I go to get my haircut at; I almost always pick up a bottle there, and if they're wash my hair, I purchase a nice bottle beforehand so that way I can get this specific kind of shampoo used on my scalp In any case, what kind of Shampoo do you use?
