I like her... mane?

It's finally time for the mane styling meet! Bring your brushables, brushes, bobby pins, small rubber bands, scissors, painting/masking tape and straws. If you want to study up, we will be using a lot of tricks from Scaromouche-Fandango's guide.

Location: Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library
Room: CPK First Floor Auditorium (lower left on map)

The meeting room is on the first floor - just go in the main doors, hang a right, and go through the distant doorway. The meeting room will be on the left. There are restrooms and a drinking fountain on the left, next to the auditorium.

Riftwing will go over the basics of mane styling before opening the meet into a workshop where those that know a thing or two about styling can help those that don't. Expect to get wet, so know where your towel is!

There is both a computer hook-up and a DVD player at this library, with built-in projector and speakers. I did not test them, but we will make it work! A few have posted in the meetup's comments about bringing in a computer. Feel free to, or to decide between yourselves who brings what. Riftwing will bring the Royal Wedding DVD if we don't have anything else.

There will also be painting customs - so bring anything you want to mod. Also bring paint and paint remover (if not water based). We don't want to leave a mess! Anyone interested in a silly G3 custom earth pony, Riftwing has white blanks that she will provide for a $5 reimbursement off of Library property.

If you have these, please bring them:
Your ponies, with your name or some identifier on them
Scissors
Combs
Rubber bands
Straws (they will be cut)
Bobby pins or small binder clips
Painter's tape or masking tape that's not very sticky
Cup/Bowl large enough for your pony to fit in completely
A towel
Hair dryer
Water heater (like for tea or ramen)
A box or vat for safe travel afterwards. Many of the ponies will be still drying and will need to make it safely back home with their hair curlers intact. Ben volunteered to make some (by request) that sound great!
Anything you wanted to do with customs - paint, markers, etc. Please bring paint remover in case of spills but really - just don't spill :)

Those that don't want to style but want to hang out can. You can bring food and drink if you want.



This is right next to the zoo, too. If folks aren't too fussed with carrying around boxes of ponies, we can swing by the zoo after the meetup to check out the Zoolights.

    Grrr, I'm sorry I won't be able to make this one. I'm a bit swamped with things at the moment. I thought this was going to be later in the week (probably cause I felt it was still November for whatever reason lol.) Well you guys have fun though! Darn, and I was looking to fix me up some Trixie and stuff. :/

      I can give you private lessons :)

      Oh my. lol, yeah I'd take you up on that if you were willing.

    It was great to see everyone and the 134 brushables at this meetup! I hope this helped - please let me know if you want to do more events like this!

    December 2, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      I'd like to do it again too. :-)

      December 4, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      I had fun, though if we do this again, I should probably do a little more mane styling. And I hopefully won't be too rushed.

      December 4, 2012

  • Max S.

    Lots of mane-styling action for all (or some of us, at least)! And Thai food! And James Bond!

    December 2, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Don't forget Zecora IRL! (And the other animals at the zoo, and Zoolights.)

      December 4, 2012

  • Twîlight S.

    Only got to style 2/8 of the brushables I brought, but it was nice getting help in person instead of scratching my head trying to read the guides by myself. Zoolights was fun too.

  • Ben B.

    Box making got delayed a bit by a stomach bug that knocked me for a loop. So, I will be taking box orders right up to Friday midday so that I have time to hit the store for any additional materials.

    I will have a few extras available due to the fact that I will be moving in a few months and I will be making enough boxes for my entire herd. If you have a fashion style or other brushable that is taller than the standard and still want a box, please let me know.

    November 28, 2012

    • Ben B.

      OK then, that accounts for all the boxes I was able to make in time.

      November 30, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Thank you again for the box. :-)

      December 2, 2012

  • John Locke (Rolling W.

    I really like her mane! :-D (Well, I mean, I really liked styling their tails. :-) )
    Also, thank you again to everypony who gave me a third hoof when I needed it.

    December 2, 2012

  • Megan W.

    Much more low-key than the other meetups I've been to. I had fun hanging with everyone!

    December 2, 2012

  • Rodrigo O.

    Didn't stay for long, and I wound up doing zero mane styling, but you can bet that I enjoyed the little time that I was there. Great being there with everyone, watching stuff, laughing ourselves silly, and all that stuff that makes meets so much fun. :D

    December 1, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    Disco and I are so sorry we couldn't make it. :( we got into an accident about 12:30. We're okay but shaken and are still settling things. At our friend's who we were gonna spend the night with anyway. Hope y'all had fun and we'll catch ya soon. <3

      So no one can give me a ride?

      November 30, 2012

  • Arty

    I had already planned on bringing my laptop, but it wouldn't be a bad idea for everybody to bring theirs who is able. Unforeseen technical difficulties are always a possible. The more computers, the less we'll have to worry about something not working as intended. I just had to replace my GRUB on Sunday though I have no idea why it decided to give out.

    November 29, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    Okay, just had a long conversation with Delc and I'm sure we won't step on his hooves merch wise. We have MANY different items from his stash and I'm confident we'll both sell at least ONE thing to SOMEPONY! XD

    Disco and I take both PayPal, and he has a Square (a credit/debit card reader for his cell phone) and will make sure his car is next to Delc's after the meet so we can sell out the trunk. Just please check out Delc's stuff first. <3 We wouldn't feel comfortable selling without his example.

    (And again, we're still not sure if we're going. We'll know soon enough)

    November 28, 2012

  • MintamenaPie

    Hay everypony! Disco and I are looking in to coming. I'm a long time all generation collector and I love playing with Pony manes. Is anyone willing to buy some G1s or G3s? We have a few in the Bronies NYC store donated by me and Kar, but so few Brony and older gen collectors overlap that I'll probably end up flipping them on the message boards.

    November 27, 2012

    • Riftwing

      Step away! We'd love some wrapping paper for our gift exchange, at the very least. :3

      November 28, 2012

    • MintamenaPie

      That was mainly on Delc since I know he sells out his trunk. Do you all do that, actually? XD Disco and I head up the BroniesNYC store so we ARE SWIMMING IN MERCH!

    For those that need to get supplies, there's a CVS right accross the street. Metro track work! http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/news/PressReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=5379

    Buses will replace the trains between the Forest Glen and Fort Totten stations on the Red Line. Single tracking between Greenbelt and College Park on the Green Line, Stadium-Armory and Cheverly & East Falls Church and West Falls Church on the Orange Line.

    November 26, 2012

    • Johnathan I. T.

      Typically 15-20 minutes on average, but realistically a half-hour if you have to get on a bus from Forest Glen to Fort Totten.

      November 27, 2012

    • Rodrigo O.

      Ah, I see. May need to give myself extra time for the return trip.

    If anybody collects the trading cards, bring any extras you have with you. I also have a few I'm looking to get rid of.

  • Ben B.

    For carrying styled ponies back without mussing their manes I am making a few carrying boxes with pegs to keep them from sliding around. If anyone wants one, let me know soon so I have a chance to make them.

      No problem. I have something that will work nicely.

    Eep! I would love to go to this, I tried to modify my Rarity to look like my OC for fun, but it turned out pretty terrible. XD I will have to see what my work schedule looks like for that day. :3

    So I was just informed of some Christmas-related thing my family is doing that day... or I forgot about it and was reminded. Not sure which. I'm going to try to have it rescheduled or to weasel out of it.

    I've never done anything like this before so it should be a fun learning experience. Just try to be patient with me. I'm not the least bit artistic and am bound to make a few mistakes along the way.

    Riftwing, are the blank G3s earth ponies, unicorns, pegasi, or some of each?

    November 4, 2012

    • Riftwing

      They are blank G3 earth ponies. I don't think they had types. They were meant to be modified by collectors.

      As far as supplies I'll bring as much as I have, but it's better if people can bring their own materials, too.

      November 4, 2012

    • John Locke (Rolling W.

      Ok... I'll see how much of the supplies you mentioned I can get.

    In addition to styling, would you be open to paining customs? I think they can go hand in hand.

    November 1, 2012

    • Riftwing

      As long as we're not messy, that should be fine. I have some G3 blanks that I'm selling for $5 each that I wanted to do a painting meetup on. It hasn't happened yet so we can use them here, too.
