Title: Howdy!
Post by: Lethendralis on September 19, 2021, 03:37:09 AM
Don't mind me, I'm just the goblin artisan lurking in the corner, trying to figure out how to tackle a whole bunch of MLP restoration tasks that are new to me.

Even though I'm a 90s kid, perfectly poised to be a huge MLP collector, I actually didn't collect them until G3 came out (I mostly owned Breyer horses and tons of dinosaur figures instead, turning to anime stuff in my teens onward), and even then, I only picked up a few of the ones I especially liked. I also purchased a few lots of bait ponies back in the day with the intent to customize, but life has a funny way of coming up with other plans and so I didn't really get around to utilizing those supplies much.... until now!

I'd given away a large portion of my MLPs —virtually all G1s and G3s— upon accepting the fact that I was unlikely to do anything with them and I wasn't exactly part of any related communities.  Life took a grim turn and my best friend passed away, leaving me with a new-to-me collection of Flutters, Summer Wings, and Windy Wings that had nowhere else to go. I couldn't bear to toss them or pass them on, but they'd also been well loved and weren't in the best of shape... and so here I am, bringing out all those buried supplies of mine and digging deep into restoration techniques so I can give these gals some thoroughly deserved TLC.

Ol' Morning Glory in my profile pic isn't my favorite MLP — that'd probably be Night Glider, one I've never had, and I'm not likely to own anytime soon!— but she's the first completed restoration in what's sure to be a pretty long, ongoing process.
