hi all! been lurking on here for a couple days and figured id just make an account already - im creg / they / 21 yrs + im fairly new!

i really only started seriously collecting in july of 2020 after being struck with a sudden possible autoimmune disorder + latching onto ponies to ... cope? i suppose? I was suddenly stuck in bed with limited mobility and surrounding myself with ponies + restoring/cleaning a couple over these past couple months has been so relaxing for me ♡ not to mention how nice and accepting the pony community has been to me always.

ive always been into mlp ( born in 1999 so i missed out on the old ponies ) and the old ones were alluring to me even as a kid! all the ponies i had growing up were g3 + were later sold off by my awful mom so i am in the process of collecting back the ones i remember + some new girls for the herd ♡ Ive always been a toy collector so mlp collector rooms have been facinating to me since i was very small, and some of my earliest memories are looking at other peoples collection rooms on my computer.

i got really into mlp: fim when i was in middle school and managed to hold onto the g4 ponies i used to pick up at kmart after school, so i still have those thankfully. my collection is pretty small right now as my finances arent consistant + i dont have much space, but i collect ponies based on my bond with each one individually - so i have around 30 ( g1-g3 ) that mean the world to me ♡

as for favorites - i have a real soft spot for BBE ponies, i find their eyes to have a super adorable creepy-cute factor. augh ♡ i could stare at them all day. i dont know why i like them so much but i hope to learn to restore them so i can have a lot of them someday. other than BBEs, im obsessed with the G1 twice as fancy ponies + G3 pegasus ponies. at the end of the day i like ALL ponies really, it just depends on the individual feeling the pony brings me. i could gush about ponies all day.

aside from ponies im a comic artist + illustrator for my professional stuff :) !! ive had to take a major break bc of my health, but normally i am working 24/7 on my projects. i also do pony art for me + friends ( more based on the g1 mlp illustrative style ) and the fanpony i made to represent me is a pegasus named skysplash!

anyways, ive gone on way too long! ;; i cant say how often ill be active on here ( im suuuper shy ) but ive already found so many helpful recources here that at least know ill be lurking ♡ the pony community is one of the sweetest ive encountered anywhere, and it really feels like home whenever i encounter it. hope everypony has a good day ♡

You have totally come to the right place to gush about ponies all day!! I'm a G1 collector but soft spots are growing for G2 and G3, I just need more SPACE! Or a pony room TARDIS, that would solve all our problems! I don't know if I've ever met anyone with a fondness for BBE but hey all ponies deserve to be loved LOL I'm drawn to the TAF ones too, something about that all over symbol pattern is just alluring and the babies are ADORABLE! I love the G1 style art and your avatar is really cute, would love to see more of your artwork. Anywho, welcome to the board, we're a small but fun and friendly group :satisfied:

Blue Pagasi unite! *insert awesome pony power pose here*

Welcome to the MLPTP! As others have already mentioned, you have found a group of people who can very much relate to you in many ways. No need to be shy, there’s no judgement held here. <3

I too would love to see some of your artwork! We have some very talented artists here of many different mediums.

I am a G1/4 collector, my favourite line being the Big Brother’s and Sparkle ponies. Anything that shimmers I’m all about that. Kinda like a magpie I guess. Lol I know @evilbunnyfoofoo might rival you with a love for the BBE babies, she’s got a big love for all the lesser loved ponies. ;)

The size of your collection doesn’t mean anything, so long as you are happy with what you have. That’s all that matters. I personally try to only collect Pegasus, Unicorn and Big Brothers (of course lots of “others” have made a place in my collection). I get questions about why, simply it’s what I love. G4 - well... I gotta catch ‘em all. :oops:
