Hello there!
« on: January 11, 2018, 06:03:10 AM »
Hi folks! I've just started getting back into MLP after a long spell of just not being interested. The power of nostalgia compels me back. :P You can call me Solar (my real name is Lily)!

I'm a 20-year old Idahoan looking to rebuild the collection I had as a kid, and maybe pick up a few new ponies along the way.

Currently I have G3 Pinkie Pie, Kimono, Cheerilee, and Rainbow Dash, all thrift store finds (in great condition too)! Even though none of them are the ones I'm looking for, they're lovely and I'm glad I found them. :D As a youngin' I had Star Catcher, Sparkleworks, Sky Wishes, Hidden Treasure, and Love Wishes. I hope to find all of them again. I'll never stop kicking myself for giving them away xD

I also do some fan art for G3! I like to put a semi-realistic spin on ponies, and I have a few of my own pony character ideas stewing. Is there a spot on the forums for fan art...?

Welcome to the Arena :wave:

You can post your fan art under the Arts & Crafts Corral.

I believe that your collection will rapidly expand now that you have found us - and those that you miss from long ago will be reunited with you in no time.  Have an amazing time on the forum! :)

Hello, it is nice to meet you!  Your avatar art is beautiful.  I remember when Star Catcher was in the stores- she is one of my favorite G3s.   Congrats on your thrift finds and good luck re-building your collection!
