Adding Dash to the Ranks by OtakuSquirrel Adding Dash to the Ranks by OtakuSquirrel
It took me two days of continues work to paint all these Rainbow Dashes... that doesn't include the prep...

Anyway, Dash is now added to the mix-- as is beginning to be usual, I screwed one of the ten of her up-- so I only got 9 of her out of the batch. In this case, I used the wrong Purple paint on one of her tails, and I royally botched the paint up on one her manes by smudging it.

Scootaloo is almost completely prepped-- and I've already lost one of her tails! So there'll probably only be 9 of her as well. I think I'm cursed. Be careful Scratch, there's still ten of you and I want to keep it that way!!!

Anyway, I've now got 50 ponies ready to sell at Everfree Northwest. I also have Daring Do ready for the charity auction. Wildfire is a gift and just needs her cutie-mark.

I still have 62 ponies to go (which will probably end up being more like 56 or so... Either way, the plan is to have over 100 ponies ready to go! =D

I'm just wondering, do you sell these over the internet and ship them?  Because I would totally buy a one of those Rainbow Dashes.

I haven't taken any on-line orders in about 2 years now.  I was commissioned to do a really big project last year, and am trying to get back into the swing of things now.  Once I finish transitioning to a sustainable production method, I'll be looking into opening orders again.

Do you have an estimate of how much you will be selling these for? I am going to everfree and want to plan.

The finished ponies will be between $90 and $130 each-- depending on complexity. The resin mane-and-tail kits will be between $13 and $16. (Tax is already included in the price)

LOL! Well, I'm already kind-of doing that... I picked 10 as a pretty arbitrary number that was more than I thought that I could sell.

Those are awesome. They look really professionally made, at first I thought you'd bought them somewhere. xD I'm sure you won't have trouble selling them.

It was a YouTube link for a song called "They're coming to take me away"... Not the most PC thing in the world, but I'm surprised it hasn't been turned into a PMV yet...

I was just poking fun at the fact that YouTube loves to play ads before all of its videos. ;P

If I remember correctly, it was one for Marriott Inn & Suites.

How do cookies affect ads, he inquired inquisitively.

Cookies can track what you look at on-line, and then when you get to a page with ads, the cookies get referenced to choose an appropriate ad for you... It's all rather garbled and why I make sure to have ad-blocking add-ons.

That's what I was aiming for... Dash was honestly a lot more time-consuming that I thought she would be- I had wanted to have finished Scoots these last few days also... Hopefully I'll wrap her up sometime this weekend.

$90 to $130 each at the convention. Daring will be in the auction-- so I'm hoping that she goes for LOTS LOTS more than that. ;)
