Title: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party - August 8th (Oregon/WA)
Post by: Galactica on January 08, 2015, 10:50:08 PM
Are you looking for the 2016 Pony Party?  Go HERE: http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,372145.msg1445099.html#msg1445099



4th Annual PNW Pony Party

WHEN? - August 8, 2015, 10 - 4

* WHERE? the Maple Valley Library - 21844 SE 248th St Maple Valley, WA 98038
This is a great spot- it is pretty large, and we are allowed to bring snacks and drinks- so please do!  If you have a craft table to bring, that could be very helpful as the place is a little short of tables.

* WHAT activities?

Custom contest with FABULOUS PRIZES!  (There will be a selection of prizes to choose from including GORGEOUS customs, customizing package, and various G1 and G4 ponies and FUnkos)

To qualify for the contest
1) The custom can be any generation, but if G4, it must be Fashion Style or Styling size (zilla size) (You can get a Zilla sized at Fred Meyers for between $7.99 and $9.99!)
2) You can enter only 1x

POT LUCK - bring your snacks and drinks to share!

Crafting! Bring your ponycrafts (or doll crafts if you like!) - we can craft together and some of our members are serious customizers that can offer some really great advice!

Pony garage sale!   Pony shop and swap!  Please bring your extra ponies and crafts to sell and swap, and some cash to buy if you are so inclined!  Do you customize? Bring something to sell!  Not limited to Ponies although there are always many dozens of ponies from every generation to choose from :D

Show and Tell - Bring your favorite/interesting/meaningful ponies to share!

White Elephant exchange! Bring custom bait to swap for something you'd like more! Maybe you have some extra G4s and want a G1- maybe you have a G1 and want a brushable! Maybe you have PONY CRAFTS!! Bring them all!

Coloring Contest!! - yep- just what it sounds like!

* Crafting demos!
- if people are interested - some of our more talented pony customizers (and we have some amazing ones in this group) can give some demos of some basic customizing techniques like feathering, etc.

Summer is usually a good time for most people.  I'm not very active in the community anymore but I'll try to be there.

You KNOW I'm in ;) Summer's as good a time as any for me. I liked the library a lot but was it too small?

Also, I was thinking that maybe our custom contest should simply be 'Fashion Styling' bait. That's it. Any theme you want, however difficult you want. What do you think?

I think we should advertise prizes earlier in advance too, to help motivate us. I'll bring back that 'customizer's basket' (I'll get pix and post them here) and add some more baits since I recently went through mine and I have a TON.

I think I'll make way bigger nametags and maybe a simple ice-breaker game.

I agree fabulous prizes could be a motivator-  maybe I can donate a fabulous custom (not by me of course!)

I like your ideas re the contest Salli- more specific means more likely people will be able to plan and participate.

You know, the library was a little bit small that last time, I think mostly though it was the lack of table space right?  If anyone has a better location  ?

I could also bring TV tables (for mini-set ups) and I think more chairs would have been helpful...

Post by: Salli on January 10, 2015, 07:43:20 AM
I think we had a lack of chair space due to all the tables. There were tons of chairs in the closet. I think maybe just a better layout would help next time.

I also really like the idea of custom contest being the fashion style size ponys there is more real-estate to create on and it would be easier and more enjoyable to view and critique with a group. :D

It seemed like there were lots of people who had items to sell and needed tables or need their own and then we also needed a space for eating/crafting and conversation. Perhaps a larger location or venue? I'll look around and see what there might be but I am assuming the main attraction of the Maple Valley library was:
Thoughts or suggestions on another area that might work for everyone so its not too far to travel?
Just throwing my ideas out there. ;)

  • free space to use

I don't mind traveling, so don't worry about me if that's an issue. The problem with finding something between Seattle & Portland is that none of us live there so none of us have contacts for free spaces.

Maple Valley library also had the bathrooms/kitchenette, tables and chairs. I have places here I can book that are bigger and nice, but they are too far away from you all XD

Does anyone have other public buildings they can look at? Or semi-cheap ones? We did once consider offering up some custom ponies for sale to raise money for meet space.

I would love it to be in Washington. I've never been to a Ponymeet and I always have to head up there in the summer so if the times happened to match up and I was there when it happened, that'd be amazing. I have some ponies I might even be able to sell too, some cheap baits and blind bags but also two customs I'm not sure what to do with anymore and a lot of furniture or accessories.

Post by: Galactica on January 12, 2015, 04:48:29 PM
Kingsly and Jinxxy, we'd love to have you both!

I'll look into some rentable spaces at the parks...

Okay- from what I am seeing, the prices aren't cheap-  so lets plan for the library location (we will make better use of space and chairs) - and if someone can find a better space, than we can change it! :D

Also - I will tentatively set the date for August 1st (a Sat)  just so we can get something on the calendar. If something occurs that there are major conflicts with the date (I think in the past we have tried to compete with Everfree) then we can decide whether another date works better for most people :D

Post by: Salli on January 12, 2015, 09:47:30 PM
Sounds good, Galactica. I also want to make a guest book for people to sign if they want, so we can watch how the party grows :)

Did we want to do Styling Size or Fashion Styling size? or either? I've never done a zilla but I'd love to.

Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)
Post by: Jinxxy on January 12, 2015, 10:23:09 PM
Is this an annual thing? How many showed up before?
I'd love to get out there and trade and chat :D
Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)
Post by: Galactica on January 12, 2015, 10:32:37 PM
Salli-  I was thinking Styling size (zilla) but maybe we should include Fashion Style size within it?

Jinxy - we have had two (maybe 3?) now- last year the group that showed up was fairly large for a pony meet- I don't recall now exactly how many, does anyone remember?  Maybe thirty something?

I just checked the library reservation site, and it appears we can only reserve a room three months in advance, so I'll try and book the room on May 1st.
Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)
Post by: Salli on January 12, 2015, 11:36:33 PM
I am fine with the zilla theme, does anyone else have a problem with it? I'd be happy to do FS size as well, don't be afraid to pipe up.

No clue, hence the idea for the guest book XD Someone (Serafina, I think?) had a pic of all of the attendees from the first party. And I didn't go to the 2nd. I think you are right about there being about 30 at this last one.

Oh, that's right. What time does that library open in the morning?

Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)
Post by: Jinxxy on January 12, 2015, 11:42:21 PM
Thirty? Awesome. Are there many other things to do in the city where it's being held?
I'd likely carpool with my guy, and I'd want to make it worth his while :p

Hello all. I'm new here and live in Washington. I was wondering how long this event lasts--all day? half day? Just wondering about places that rent by the hour. What if there was some small admission fee to pay for space?

Post Merge: January 13, 2015, 02:24:28 AM

Well, I reread the original post after posting (note to self: read BEFORE posting) and see it's a 4 hour event from 10-2   ^.^

It seems like we go longer than that O.o Maybe that's as long as the library will let us stay. We may need to find a new place just so we can go longer.

I'll book the entire day- although I know some people are reluctant to commit to the entire day, it does seem that most stay for as long as the library allows us! I think we got kicked out at 5 last time...

I think it may have been a Sunday, we had the room booked until 4:30, but took until 5:15 or so to clear out- which was when the Library was closing that day.  THe lady said that in the future we needed to start clean-up so that we are actually out of the room at the time our reservation ends...    :P

As for location- it is South-East of Seattle. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Maple+Valley+Library/@47.37996,-122.04848,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x5490606c25e256dd:0xceec961614151754

If anyone is coming from the North Beacon Hill neighborhood (or wants to take the light rail to it) I'll be happy to carpool :D

I haven't been to a pony meet in years. And to think I held the very first one ever lol. I don't think I've posted here much over the years so I don't even know if any of you know/remember me lol. I still collect, but haven't made a custom in years. I think this meet is a little farther than my comfort level for driving allows lol but I'll see if I might be able to go.

Everyone who wants to show up at the Beacon Hill lightrail station 45 minutes before our start time (as yet undetermined but probably 11am) can join me for a free ride there and back! 

It's right across the street from Red Apple, so if you get there a bit early by accident, you can browse for drinks or snacks if you want!  But please text me when you get there because I will probably be waiting in the parking lot :D

I think that I will have 1-2 people already- so there is room for at least 2 more!!!  The two extras who are going probably will not have a lot of loot to bring- so there will be plenty of trunk space :)

Ladymoondancer I think it is probably easy for you to get there on the 60 or the 36 ? They both stop at the same place (in front of the station outside the light rail) :D
Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)
Post by: LadyMoondancer on April 07, 2015, 08:29:53 PM

Awesome.  :)  It looks like the 60 will get me there all right.  Thanks, I am happy and grateful to have a ride!

Oh sure!  I will be parked directly across from the light rail station in the Red Apple Parking lot- (most likely right along the curb that faces the light rail- so you can't miss me!)

Still room for at least one more if someone wants to join! Feel free to PM if you do.  We will plan to leave at 9:15 so that we can get to the Maple Valley Library right at 10 :D

Guys, I helped my friend dig out her Paradise Estate and other pony stuff from storage! She doesn't want to keep the playsets or accessories anymore, just the ponies. I am going to bring them to the meet to sell. After we figure out how complete the sets are and how much they are worth. It was so much fun to see PE in person - I never owned it. It is HUGE and there are tiny milk cartons that go in the pony 'fridge! Tiny milk cartons!!

So glad I checked up on this thread again! :D

I am down for Maple Valley Library again. I checked around some other spaces but I don't think we have a huge budget and our event is not that big to warrant shelling out for it.

I love the Fashion Zilla giant pony custom contest entry! And yes to the coloring contest too!

I can make some buttons for prizes too! :D

Hey everyone!   

News update- the reservation I requested for August 1 was rejected! They have some sort of class that day-  so I have requested to reserve August 8th- the following Sat.  I hope that doesn't inconvenience too many people!

I'm getting together a HUGE box of ponies for swapping (and some give-away) and need to get my custom finished!

I'm adding a variety of Funko ponies to the award pile- and some really cute customs :D

Post by: BethMcBeth on July 08, 2015, 08:53:53 PM
I believe I can still come on the 8th, has the request for the 8th been approved? Or is that still pending? Did we need to think of a back up place or another date etc.?

Can't wait to see everyone! And I need to get started on my custom!
Title: Re: 2015 Pacific Northwest Pony Party Planning Thread! (Oregon/WA)

I'm pretty sure it will be approved- the problem was that they wouldn't accept reservations too far in advance, so when I finally went back to reserve the room, I missed the day when the rooms opened and someone apparently beat me to it.  I will know hopefully within the next day or so whether the current reservation gets cancelled, but I think it very unlikely this time since they have already put our group event up on the calendar :D

Wish I could go but it's at least a 2 hour drive from me and not likely I'd be able to make it. There aren't any pony peeps here that live on Whidbey Island are there?

Oh great! I'll be bringing a big load of fixer upper G1s that I scored at the Goodwill-  I only wanted Tux and Tails out of the lot, but there are some ponies with serious potential in there  :D

Sweetlittlejenny- I do LOVE going to Whidbey Island!  But yeah it's a bit of a haul.  If you make it as far as Seattle though, you could carpool with me the rest of the way?  I am doing a pick up at the Beacon HIll Light Rail station and Downtown Lightrail station (potentially if anyone is interested!)  --   One of the people coming with me has bailed, so there is another couple of seats open still :D

Oh man, I haven't been to a ponymeet in years!  I would love to come to this one, but it's just a little bit too far from me!  I'm on the Oregon coast.  It'd be a 10-hour round trip.  ^__^;;;

Yay! Another OR pony person! I drive up to Maple Valley and back but it's only 3 hours one way from the Portland area. I'd LOVE to have a mini pony meet here in Oregon somewhere :) The coast would be fun!

I need to make a to-do list for the stuff I need to get done for the party.

I think it is updated?  I put the date in big red letters-  but maybe you were thinking the title of the post should have the date? (just added) -  was there somewhere else that has incorrect info?  If so let me know or link it so I can fix it

I definitely want your lavendar Baby Ember! I wanted the lavendar one SO bad when I was a kid. I got the pink one in the mail but never liked her much, possibly just because of the disappointment factor XD

Ponyqueen, you should come! I can bring your Blueberry Baskets painting to show off :)

I snapped the world's most grainy picture of the customizer's prize basket I am donating. Now to work on my g4zilla....

Yeah, I've posted a request to change the date in that thread a couple of times, but the change itself has to be made by Hathorcat-  I'll send her a reminder!  HOPEFULLY anyone who sees that date or post will come to this thread for details and see the date is on the 8th!

In other news- I have been busy gathering pony goodies to swap and give away at the meet!  I really need to finish my Zilla too!!!

I will be bringing a few ponies and things and I'm hoping to be rid of it all by the time the meet is over! I originally had requested off yesterday, then didn't need it. a coworker reminded me and I said "OMGWHAT?!" thinking for a minute I had missed it...thankfully, it's still coming up. hahaha

I don't think AJ or RD have hit the U.S. yet-  but Amazon now has a listing for them so it appears they will hit soon!  (If you are impatient you can order from Taobao but they are not cheaper that way).

Shoot, I was going to make pony nail wraps but there's not enough time. :/ I'll bring my trades! I have several MH/EAH for trade along with my ponies. I'm really tempted to try to pull a custom together so I can win that basket!! Alas, I have no fashion styles I'm willing to bait. I'm super excited for the meet!!

I don't have any zillas, and I probs don't have time to customize one either. The price I pay for not keeping myself in the loop! ;)

Is anyone bringing dollyhair to trade? I would love to buy/trade for some black nylon hair, enough to do a MH doll. Also, I'm looking for those little pieces you put in a MH CAM head to make them rootable (to replace that hard plastic bit).

I have lots of cukes in my garden right now, I will probably be bringing some of those to the party! Maybe make a cuke tomato salad. Anyone need any herbs? I'm always happy to share those! I've got sage, thyme, oregano, and mint that is growing well right now.

In addition to ponies, 2 EqG dolls, and some misc items; I've decided to bring a whole bunch of modern Littlest Pet Shop (at least 100!) to trade or sale.  I even have some fakie LPS (they're the bratz lil angelz pets).

If anyone is wondering what they can bring to trade, here is some stuff I'd be interested in: Ponies (g1, g2, g3, g4), even ponies that need TLC or are baits!  Especially ones that are rehair candidates. G1 Pony Friends, Big Brother Accessories, Dream Beauties (I can dream...), Takara or Takara fakies (as if...   -_-), Fairy Tails birds, My Little Kitty/Puppy/Bunny, Equestria Girls dolls, Lady Baby fakies, Totsy fakies, Little Pretties, Zelfs, modern Littlest Pet Shop, and Pok√©mon. 

I have a long drive ahead of me, but I'm super excited to see the custom contest, see what you all bring to show and tell, and hopefully bring home new toys!  Just a heads up: I have autism which may make me seem aloof or distant, but know that I will be happy to meet you all.  :biggrin:

 Thank you to everyone who helped!!! Especially Beth, Galactica and Katgyrl (great soup!!)! (Forgive me if I overlooked someone who helped) We should send a cute thank you note to the MV library for hosting and helping.

I want to make a box that has stuff for the Meet in it that I never get into and just bring every year (on time this time) with stuff like pens, paper, colored pencils, sharpies, tape, etc.
